Synopsis

The second season of the Gate anime adapts the Enryuu-hen and Douran-hen arcs.

Some time has passed since humanity drove back the invading forces from what is now known as the "Special Region." In that time, a bustling town has developed within the protective walls of the SDF basecamp, and relations continue to improve favorably.

However, some in the Kingdom still do not trust Japan, viewing them as a dangerous entity, bent on invading and taking over. Although Itami and the others are working hard to make peace with the Kingdom, dark forces are secretly at work attempting to force Japan's hand. Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri Second Season focuses on the ongoing political struggle between Japan and the "Special Region" just beyond the Gate.

Background

The actual Japan Self Defense Force has used images from Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri as part of its recruiting efforts.

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? There's more JSDF propaganda in this season than the previous season. That doesn't make me love this show less, however. Also, when I say JSDF propaganda, I didn't mean that in a bad way. It's Japan's show so they can do whatever the hell they want. Hypocrites who criticizes this show for the amount of JSDF propaganda makes me sick because they're the same people who watches American films that also contains some (sometimes a lot of) U.S Army Propaganda.

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
