GATE

Jan 12, 2022

Gate is a very peculiar show. It is both an isekai and a reverse isekai at the same time. Flying helicopters descending upon an enemy castle while playing Ride of the valkyries and then raining hellfire on the bandits. Imitating that scene in apocalypse now. Oh during that scene I felt so much glee. Needless to say, I like guns in a medieval fantasy setting and this show delivers on that fantasy in spades. I also adore the contrast between worlds illustrated by the visit to Japan. Unfortunately, the plot is bogged down by needless politics, if you'd have wanted it to be the main focus of the show, gates should have appeared in more countries. Otherwise, there's too much talking not enough explosions. There's also no threats to the human world. One rocket rips off an arm of an unbeatable foe, what? Where are the greatest mages able to rival firearms.
