Rory. Enough said. Can't believe it end right there though, that was a terrible cliffhanger to be honest, lol.

A cruel, cruel point to insert a cliffhanger.
"Perhaps there is a universal, absolute truth. Perhaps it justifies every question. But that's beyond the reach of these small hands." Mamoru Oshii

There is a cult of ignorance (...) nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” Isaac Asimov

I don't know why everyone calls ending a cliffhanger. After all, we all know nothing of that sorts is going to happen...

FATE references were funny but it's obvious that they'll be interrupted next week after seeing that cut.

Shit man Rory will be the next big waifu for many Otaku. She is just waaaaaayy too much of a cocktease.

It's fantastic.

I don't know... is it just me or is the writing in this anime a bit bad? First episodes were decent, but now I get this feeling after every episode that this could have been so much more. The plot seems a bit chaotic. There's too many characters popping from out of nowhere and disappearing.

I like most, on the second thought, some of the characters a lot, especially those from the fantasy world. Leilei is tied with Papi as my waifu of the season. Rory is sexy, elf-chan is really pretty, even the ex-wife with her glasses on is pretty...

... but it's really about the plot. Something is missing. Some potential is wasted, on cliches, jokes repeated too many times...

Will still watch for Leilei though ;)

Never read the manga, but I am 110% sure they will not fuck. Everybody knows it too, so the cliffhanger is pointless. If anything the cliffhanger is "how will they get interrupted?".

Mho the ending was was predictable, something out of context will probably happen next time, hiding away that with the cliffhanger. I wouldn't mind seeing Rory though but .. you know.. inevitable fan service >->

A pretty chilly episode.

China and Russia I would understand, but why would the U.S want royalty from a barbaric nation that slaughtered innocent citizens. Until Japan had completed the peace treaty, it seems a bit risky to invite royalty into the states, otherwise America would have complaints from the Japanese american communities in how America is preventing Japan from getting revenge for the innocent lives lost.

On the side note, Saber, Lancer, Archer, Servants, Grail? Seriously? I don't suppose someone is going to stab their own heart. (sarcastic tone in use) Gee, I wonder who was the one that issued those name.

As for Pina, I want to make a bet that she will become a Free fan.

WHY THE ****ING TEASE?

Let's just hope they don't censor too much next episode, you may be satisfied; "My nation's agents of very talented." (sarcastic tone in use) the poor president never factored in the idea that his agents had to fight a "robot from the future," in this case a Demi-goddess/Servant from a fantasy land. Rory is in the heat, meaning she is unlikely going to get willingly abducted.


Btw, Desu Tronic, may I ask what anime that table flipping gif came from?

That's the problem with most series this season and really just a lot of anime in general nowadays. Consistently plotting and progress and coming out with stuff that is more than the sum of its parts is largely irrelevant compared to coming out with tangibly related sequences that the production team know general otaku will react to. Essentially if you aren't part of a certain persuasion a lot of this stuff comes across as largely meaningless. Also most Light Novel series really only try at plotting for the first volume or so and then promptly just settle into a pile of generic checklist tropes like girls like Yaoi or lol teh sexy cool gothic Lolita is acting sexy. This is why I tend to have rock bottom expectations for Light Novel series if I bother at all. Just kind of too juvenile and uncoordinated. The last time I saw one that felt any good at all and like there was some sort of greater goal and sense of purpose in mind to at least somewhat differentiate itself from other high school romance stuff was Oregairu.

Oh well I would never have had high expectations of a show like Gate in the first place. I think that's where I differ from many. There hasn't really been a single episode worth anything more than a 3/5 kind of reaction. Its just another really mediocre A-1 series.

It might have been my expectations that were too high, I guess.

I think I'm only truly enjoying Himouto, Monmusu, Okusama ga Seitokaichou and Shimoseka this season. I'm also watching Gakkou Gurashi (pretty unique), but it's depressing.

Well said, you basically summed up everything I was thinking since the 5th episode.

After this episode my expectation to this series turned down. I hope this get better in the next episodes though, but for now let's just wait.

Didn't like this episode as much as the others. Too much political stuff muddying the fun atmosphere and cool fantasy feeling that it had.

Was still fun in parts and its nice to see Kuribayashi getting more and more screen time but yeah, the political dealings and all just were pretty boring and honestly a bit stupid.

America is blackmailing Japan to let them kidnap people from the other side... for what reason? They lose public opinion on Earth's side by doing that and make the other side hostile so its less likely they would be able to move troops in. It just is dumb.

Looking forwards to them getting back to the Special Zone since that's when the show is most fun to me.

Confirmation that magic still works on Earth. That could become an interesting export.

And yeah, that's not a cliffhanger. Everyone knows they're going to get interrupted.

Love the Fate/Stay Night and Evangelion references.

To answer why America and Russia want the gate, it's very simple.

China wants space and property, America wants resources, aka a new frontier, Russia disapproves of the Gate.

I do think Fall season will be a little bit better on this front...hopefully. Summer and Winter are almost always like this as if theyre almost like off seasons only anime still airs it's just like B-Grade ecchi shit that is increasingly bordering on the outright pornographic of late. Just feels lazy really.

I still don't understand why everyone in our world so calm about all this fantasy stuff? There is no reaction at all. I mean seriously, we have an elf, priest of Dark God, sorcerer and princess with female knight - and everything they chat about is relationship and divorce? WTF, seriously? Is it really the most interesting thing to chat about with newcomers from another Universe?

Man, DO IT ITAMI! DAMN IT ALL SHE'S OVER 900! Sigh Knowing Japan nothing will happen and Rory will just be able to go sate herself by slaughtering lots o' soldiers.
Japanese nationalism also made a first class appearance by having the US soldiers get outclassed in every possible manner. Yeah, yeah, home-turf does count for a lot, but that just had me rolling my eyes a bit. Well, I'm pulling for Itami and crew, so it's not like I cared too much. :P

Itami YOU BASTARD!!! Law of Japan DO NOT APPLY to demigod and people from other world! Rory is too awesome, so awesome. Well even Itami can't stop his hand from moving... She's not even a kid, so even the rule don't apply. I mean for God's sake Itami, your ex-wife looks like a 15 years old and you got a problem with Rory??? I mean look at that!


Oh now that I realized it, does that mean Itami is not a virgin? I mean he was married...

But to wait for Rory to change her physical appearance, which is 39 years from now (Rory is 961), that means Itami would already be in his 60's. Their relationship is a very hard one....

Heh, that Pino Co Lada and her blonde friend is into BL now. Good job ex-wife. You just spread BLs to the other world through the princess.

Ah the mentioning of Hardy at the beginning. Just what kind of creature is Hardy? It seems he have those weird dolls that Rory mentioned.

That smile..


Ugh anyway we all know general rule of anime. If it's not a hentai, then there would be no rape or sex between two main characters whatsoever. So just drop the cliffhanger guys...

I'm worried about next episode's title. Despair? Whoa, we're going dark now?

Rory... really reminds me of Kuroneko when she put down her ribbons, except lewder.
