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 really liked this manga at first. AT FIRST.

The concept of our world meeting another and the problems that arise was fairly interesting. What got me however, was the constant slamming of other nations VS the beneficial Japanese ones.

I get it, the politics are there, and if you look for it, people have been discussing this manga quite a lot. This manga is NOT the first by far to bring this type of commentary into a manga. Rather for me, it's the constant USA etc bashing that has slowly grated my nerves. I get it, it's not unique in the slightest and there are some read more

Oh boy, oh boy, where do I even begin?

First of all, people love the fact that the modern army curbstomps the fantasy army. Logical? Perhaps. You can easily make it logical by downplaying the magic element the fantasy side has, like this series do. Magic is fiction after all.

However, we have a problem if we're going down that route. First of all, the modern army is the good guys here. It's fine if the modern army is the bad guys. It can be a story about the fantasy side losing and then slowly finding ways to hit back by researching new magic. Finding ways to read more

Okay, normally I don't write reviews but seeing the other reviews here praising this thing to the high heavens and what I feel about this in it being a lost opportunity for something that could have been great, I felt motivated enough to write a review.

Okay so why could this have been great? Well the underlying premise is simply an idea that offers a lot of potential. Fantasy magical Romanesque world meets modern earth with all it's high tech gadgetry and scientific insight, Hernán Cortés meets the Aztecs turned up to 11. In its larger overarching themes it has that "epic" dynamic of read more

"Gate: Jietai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakeri", I was skeptic when I decided to read this manga. I thought, it was gonna be another mediocre and boring work, which a guy with some mascot girls from military fighting against magical creatures and the military got wiped by power of magic. Then I realize that I was wrong.

Story (7/10)
In my opinion, the story of the manga has a lot of potency for being a great story, if the author made it be like some kind manga version of 'Saving Private Ryan', 'Band of Brothers' or 'Black Hawk Down'.
Unfortunately, he decided to make it to be read more

Throughout both series, they develop relationships with a variety of characters; some who shows great interest in him. Both series also medieval-like elements such as knights and dragons. Do note that GATE has more mature elements including the military while Outbreak Company involves otaku way of storytelling.

Manga: Drifters
Both mangas have people of other time periods entering a medieval fantasy world and warfare. Drifters has historical figures fighting amongst each other while recruiting the local population, Gate has the JSDF fighting dragons and local armies and experiencing culture differences. Drifters is darker and bloodier, while Gate is a bit more comedic.  
reportRecommended by Smasho
Manga: Elf wo Karu Mono-tachi
Both manga feature a alternate world and fuse together the known universe with the fantasy universe. They both are easygoing and fun to watch, although Gate has the occasional dark share to it.
Those Who Hunt Elves have much more slapstick comedy to it, but Gate uses the variety of characters and their interaction for the jokes. 
reportRecommended by kepik
Manga: Jin
Both series utilize and explore the concept of "introducing modern technologies to a more primitive culture", including the reactions and political developments that may be bought about as a result of said technologies.
While Gate focuses more on introducing modern idealologies and the technologies themselves to a 'swords-and-sorcery' setting, Jin focuses on practically applying modern knowledge in a more 'grounded' primitive historical setting.
Jin is more drama-focused than Gate, containing significantly less action, comedy and fan-service.

There is also an abundant amount of laws/rules that makes up their world. Both series' main male protagonist are also cunning and develops a variety of relationships with others. Their participation in certain battles are a significant part of the story as we see how their influences. Recommended for fans interested in a colorful adventure.
