Several months have passed since the infamous Ginza Incident, with tensions between the Empire and JSDF escalating in the vast and mysterious "Special Region" over peace negotiations. The greed and curiosity of the global powers have also begun to grow, as reports about the technological limitations of the magical realm's archaic civilizations come to light.

Meanwhile, Lieutenant Youji Itami and his merry band of female admirers struggle to navigate the complex political intrigue that plagues the Empire's court. Despite her best efforts, Princess Piña Co Lada faces difficulties attempting to convince her father that the JSDF has no intention of conquering their kingdom. Pressured from both sides of the Gate, Itami must consider even more drastic measures to fulfill his mission.

In my review of season 1, I suggested saluting the Japanese flag. Well, it looks like the writers decided to give me a hand because the ending now contains a Japanese flag flying gloriously. Plus fantasy girls in military gear in various military activities, having tons of fun. In fact, the military is portrayed as so fun we should all join. Play around in the bath and get the complimentary harem. Sounds legit to me.

...Anyway, season 2 picks up where the last one left off. Beyond the titular gate is a fantasy land with elves, dragons, catgirls and whatnot. The place has been annexed by read more

Every so and often, we come across a series where there’s some controversy. Anime isn’t shy to take risks and so we have stories that involves the military, politics, prostitution, and slavery. Putting that aside, a show is also capable of capitalizing on these risks and turn it into something of a blessing in disguise. Gate Jieitai Kanochi nite Kaku Tatakaeri 2nd Season is one of these shows.

Returning for a second season, GATE focuses on two major arcs. A few things first though. The series has already build a lot with the first season as we were introduced to Itami Youji, a lieutenant from the read more

"Gate: And So the Second Round of Propaganda begins"
^^ is honestly a fitting title for this show.

Why? 'Cuz there's more JSDF propaganda in this season. However, that doesn't mean I love this show less.
Also, when I say JSDF propaganda, I don't mean that in a bad way. It's Japan's show so they can do whatever the hell they want with it. People who criticize this show for having "too much JSDF Propaganda" are a bunch of hypocrites anyways because I can bet you, they're the same people who watches American films that contains a ton of "F*ck Yea! America!".

what can i say? good? not that great? mediocre? wait, it's not mediocre but not that good

this anime should have label "FOR MILITER-OTAKU" see that little strip between those words. that has meaning too.

first, if you don't know and don't enjoy explosives and guns. this anime had typical story that offers you. so, it should be hard to enjoy this anime

second, "japs propaganda is so strong with this one" is not an exaggerate statement. but wait, it's still using accurate military tactic and strategy. so, if you enjoy that. this anime should be fine

this anime has not much too offer except guns, military tactic, propaganda read more
