Synopsis

Thirty-two years have passed since the initial defeat of the Invaders. A.E.G.I.S is all but dismantled now and has become an underground organization consisting of only a few Gate Keepers left to save humanity. One of the members, Ayane Isuzu, is sick of society as a whole, though she continues to defeat the Invaders out of spite for her father. Suddenly, she learns of the revival of Machine General (Kikai Shogun) and Devil Count (Akuma Hakushaku), but a mysterious ghost girl now accompanies them. It is up to Ayane and the remnants of A.E.G.I.S to stop them and save humanity once again.

It’s a worthy follow-up to the series, but I still like the original series - mostly because I found Gate Keepers to be more serious than the original. This time around things got more morbid too – there was definitely more blood. It’s not like I can’t stand blood (gory I barely gave a chuckle while watching the OVA, whereas the original had me laughing all the time. Also, it’s no longer a harem anime. It’s more of a bishojo anime.

The characters were less charismatic as well. Ayane and Miu were OK, they reminded me of Megumi and Reiko, but the only character I truly read more

There's a horde of stock alien invaders rampaging about in the city. There's a pack of (more or less) cool girls using superpowers, throwing about deadly cell phones & easily crushing those invaders like small bugs. Six episodes of this ahead.

Is that all? Well, the short answer is: No.

Seeing the genre-eviscerating Madoka★Magica shake the mahou shoujo fandom today makes me wonder even more as to why GK 21, being nine years older and attempting basically the same thing, went barely noticed. Perhaps because no one had expected that a follow-up to a light-hearted shounen/action/adventure/harem series would be a gloomy mahou shoujo deconstruction. Yet it's read more

I personally thought it was great even though I haven't seen the first Gatekeepers. The characters were connected by their pasts that it made the story better. The art was amazing and seemed very real. I enjoyed watching it.
