Description: One day in the 21st century, a gate opened in the middle of the Ginza district of Tokyo. Out of the gate poured soldiers and strange creatures, and they soon made Ginza look like an image of hell. The gate apparently connected Japan to another world, a world with a militant empire and many supernatural creatures. The Japanese Self-Defense Force decided to send a small group, led by a soldier who's also an otaku, into the other world on a reconnaissance mission. They're meant to learn what they can about the empire (and its plans), the world, and the people.

They're hardly in the world yet, though, when they come across a village destroyed by a giant fire-breathing dragon. The only survivor is an unconscious elven girl they find hidden in a well. Now they feel like they must warn the nearby towns about the dragon, and do what they can to help. On the way, they'll meet more magical, female companions, and learn more about this dangerous new world.

I just updated the Manga description with the new spin-off. You guys are free to revise it if there is any grammatical or orthographically problems.

KaazaLite@

 

did you really read the whole chapters until to 44?

 

1)they started waging war after abducting/kidnapping japanese civilians and they thought that they were weak

 

2)man, is all about consciousness usually a fully trained soldier must have at least the resolve to use gun to shot someone, they aren't some high school kids that have gun on hand but S-O-L-D-I-E-R Fully Trained to use it

 

3)they perfectly said that they want Lands,Exemption from Tax,Trade Route,Monetary Compensation and Natural Resource

 

4)there are only 2 females in the MC JSDF team plus the other are just 1 homeless elf , 1 homeless appretice mage girl, 1 homeless demigod girl(though she's the only 1 out of normal)

 

mind telling what's wrong with your eyes and your complaining?

SPIN-OFF! Gate - Piña Colada's Order of The Rose Knights. The story centers around the life of Piña Colada and how she came to form the Order of The Rose Knights when she was young.

Hey guys! News! Gate - now has a new spin-off. The new spin-off features the girls from the other world who becomes idols.

http://www.alphapolis.co.jp/manga/viewOpening/428000108

I find really it hard to believe that these young JSDF soldiers, who have never seen battle in their life, are able to shoot all these people at pretty much point-blank range without a single hint of conscience. In fact, they do it with a smile on their faces. Killing people, especially for the first time, should not be this easy to mentally overcome.

 

I find it IMPOSSIBLE to believe the JSDF would be this passive. Funding an army is expensive as hell so no way are they gonna do this and expect nothing in return. There should also be a ton of people and corporations who would jump in to try to exploit this land and its people. Given what one of the MC's superior said to him in an earlier chapter and the talk about the Spaniards and Mayans, I expect this will probably become a plot point later on. It better become a plot point cuz it would be utter bullshit otherwise.

 

Oh, and their excuse to put in all these female characters is barely passable.

Yeah and here I thought this was a true story based on facts, but it's starting to feel more and more as a fiction. Geez talk about misleading right?
I'm having even doubts that another world exist.

If it's under the assumption that JSDF soldiers are just as properly trained as any other soldier, then I honestly don't see the problem.

The bareback truth about soldiers is that they are trained professional killers. They're trained to kill, and taught to do so without hesitation. The reason for this is plain simple; you either kill the enemy or he kills you first so the soldier with the least amount of hesitation wins.

I doubt that they would not expect anything back in return from the Empire. After all, it is still about two countries waging war. My guess is probably a shared ownership of resources as well as monetary compensation.

What's a manga with mon-girls without boobs anyway? :U

I agree but that's a web novel for you it's amateurish so you can't really complain about those part and it will be better if they'l' just nuke them so the empire will behavely submit themselves end of story.

And it pisses me off to see that bastard on the cover page.

@KaazaLite: I don't know if you have read the manga properly but they are determined to get something in return.

So the Empire attacked Earth without a single clue as to Earth's military might? Also, since Earth's science and technology is so much more powerful than the Empire's sword and magic, a draft would not be necessary, so why is a hapless otaku like the MC in the defense force? Lastly, if this were to happen in real life, we all know America would be all over that place like they own it.

I hope you realize all the stuff you complained about is either explained in the first few chapters, is a plot point later on, or should be common sense.

The Empire is lucky that the Gate opened in Modern Day Japan (they're a bit pacifist) compared to their neighbors. Imagine if the gate opened during Imperial Japan in 1940's- that would be way worse

Advance notice of the dragon's arrival was instrumental to the operation and he had five hours to rectify the situation. Instead of aborting and picking it up later, he took the risk and got his squad killed. When you are in charge everything is your fault.

I haven't read the novel so I don't know how it goes there. But I don't think the communication went down the whole 5 hours. More likely, It went on and off during those hours which is to expected due to terrain. The fire dragon just happened to come back during off period. Bad luck. He may/may not try to improve the situation off-screen which I doubt any would help. However, If you need communication to be crystal clear before you can start anything, you might as well abandon the mission for good. 

is a loli a loli because of her age or her looks?

 

Both.

Dont even know which elf girl is dying, they all look the same lol

They will all just die.

i dunno how itami is to blame fer this current turn of events. he never intended to tag these guys along. theyre all volunteers, except fer tuka, so saying that they lacked training is irrelevant.

Itami should have realized that rushed training with complex, explosive weaponry when they had no experience with anything more complicated than a bow and arrow would result in them being a greater danger to their allies than their enemy. The first girl to get a rocket off not only failed to do any damage, she torched her two buddies in the face. They had listened to his explanation, but if a picture is worth a thousand words then actual experience is worth a million and they had none.

as fer observation of the surrounding area, he delegated that task to rory. the radio not working deep inside the cave is what led to this situation. now you could say that itami shoulda known that radio may not work inside the cave, but it wasnt him who went to scout the nest, so he prolly didnt have the idea of how deep inside the cave was the nest.

Woah, Lelei there calling it like it is, niiice.  Re: combat & panic, training makes the difference.  There's a reason the K/D ratio (whatever the proper term is) is so lopsided in Iraq and Afganistan when comparing well-trained militaries and terrorists, even when they're both just using AK's.  A machine gun is almost entirely useless if you just lean on the trigger and hope you hit something.  This disaster is Itami's fault: cursory rushed training (with explosives!) and never checked in with his observation team (was anyone watching the other side of the mountain?).

Thanks for the info! How did American soldiers in Afghanistan not blow themselves up in panic then, being fresh? Were there just vets mixed in to reduce fuckups? Were the Taliban just that incompetent?

For one thing Americans fighting in the Middle East can't really be compared to a bunch of guys caught flat-footed by a dragon on its home turf. But your answer is training and drilling and more drilling and training. I am a veteran having served in the Navy aboard submarines, so my rating prevented me from ever making it into combat as the bad guys had no ships for us to sink, but I served with men who'd fought in both Iraq and Afgahnistan (and I did no small amount of drilling myself) and that's your answer. All that training and drilling builds discipline and muscle memory to the point you're eating it, drinking it, and dreaming it. That way when crap goes down, you don't even have to think, you just do it. While they're not actively deployed (and often even while they are) they are training and drilling. On submarines we did little apart from training and drilling while at sea.

The thing I miss most about military life was having that discipline. It's just getting the discipline that I disliked.
 

so, anyone care to explain how rocket launchers become nerf weapons in the hands of the dark elves?

He mentions it both during the training session and the fight. The warheads have a safety mechanism to prevent accidental explosions during transport; a procedure is followed to arm them immediately prior to firing. Without the explosive warhead it's just a rocket-propelled chunk of metal; the small explosions you see were likely the fuel from the rocket igniting when the canister smashed. Furthermore, one of the elves is even shown to have forgotten the safety for the launcher itself rendering the weapon completely inert.

so, anyone care to explain how rocket launchers become nerf weapons in the hands of the dark elves? 

well, I never understand, why Itami gave those noobs (elfs) the big guns... any reasonable commander would think "noobs might do more damage to themselves than to enemy" and guess what? It's true.

 

And that point "Rory, do you hear me? ... huh? ... The rocks must be interfering with radio." should be called MASS DEATH FLAG. Fucking 5 hours without any connection to observation post?? it's almost like they were asking for tragedy...
