Synopsis

Off-duty Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) officer and otaku, Youji Itami, is on his way to attend a doujin convention in Ginza, Tokyo when a mysterious portal in the shape of a large gate suddenly appears. From this gate, supernatural creatures and warriors clad in medieval armor emerge, charging through the city, killing and destroying everything in their path. With swift actions, Youji saves as many lives as he can while the rest of the JSDF direct their efforts towards stopping the invasion.

Three months after the attack, Youji has been tasked with leading a special recon team, as part of a JSDF task force, that will be sent to the world beyond the gate—now being referred to as the "Special Region." They must travel into this unknown world in order to learn more about what they are dealing with and attempt to befriend the locals in hopes of creating peaceful ties with the ruling empire. But if they fail, they face the consequence of participating in a devastating war that will engulf both sides of the gate.

As of the beginning of the Gate, I'm impressed in the Opening remarks and the good quality of the characters. This is the first anime I've watched where the modern and the ancient warfare remix.
In the episode 1-4 the main characters seems entangled with the three girls. Well this first meeting was so adorable and incredible.
The characters behaviors are so interesting and can be used in the real life except the violence.
I hope the second season will be realised like the other animes.

Gate could've been a story of modern vs old, with a bit of cultural exchange; instead it went down the otaku pandering route, combined with absurd amounts of right-wing nationalism.

It is a real shame, since there were some genuinely interesting comparisons, such as the difference of how prisoners are treated by the Japanese army compared to the medieval army, but these scenes are barely touched upon, as if the writer was only using the scenes to say "Japan is the good guy! Everyone else is the bad guy!"

In fact, that seems to be the running theme throughout the series. Japan is presented as the Good read more

Two worlds, different dimensions, one is fantasy and the other one are reality. If these two existences merge with one gate, what will the future hold for both worlds?

I'll admit, on the surface this series doesn't sound like it would make a good series. Add more with the main lead Youji Itami who’s already aged 33 years old. One of the most courageous steps I’ve ever seen. Anime industries have laid teenagers as the read more

GATE, a simple 4 letter word that can release so much potential with its premise. The idea behind GATE is that of a series about modernized humans clashing with fantasy (warriors wielding ancient armor, elves, dwarves, dragons, etc). By clashing, it doesn’t entirely mean a total war between the two sides. After a while, both sides begins to establish a diplomatic relationship with one another. Sounds strange right? It also kind of goes in a two-fold. Fantasy enters reality and reality enters fantasy. Both worlds are separated by a gate and at the center of it, there’s a man named Youji Itami.
