Gate Tatakaeri “Reality & Fiction Collide!”




JSDF propaganda anime Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite Kaku Tatakaeri has delivered its first round to the masses, swiftly currying plenty of attention with its theme of pitting military might against the ferocity of swords and magic (though with some declaring the match-up to be rather one-sided) – while also earning itself praise for its originality.

    It’s not made by the JSDF guys… -_-

    The original manga/doujin was written 10 years ago by an independent author who happens to be an ex-JSDF soldier. So that’s where that side of it comes from, but it’s got no official ties or funding. It was simply a popular manga that got put forward for adaptation, like any other.

    Does everyone here think that Call of Duty is funded by the US government too or what? Find something less retarded to bitch about.

    Do you like standard harem series? Because that’s what this is, just with a side helping of Japanese nationalism (and some creative setting manipulation).

    Though if you’ve ever fantasized about going back in time to shoot Romans in the face while banging elves and bunny girls then you’ve found your Mecca.

    Army propaganda, sure, but still watchable. Better than the Transformers or Battleship movies and way better than the army propaganda that our personal tyrant used to make here before he died…

      (From reading the manga) Curiously you can actually note how the way the JSDF fumbles around how to conduct and organise themselves in the new world, reflects their purpose in reality. As a purely defensive military force, they don’t have a proper policy on occupying foreign territory. Most others would target, isolate and control any points of political or military influence without delay. THEN they’d start negotiating.

    So why are they making this instead of Sword Art Online Season 3? Highly confusing, especially given SAO 2 was getting 13-15k first week on Blu Ray in Japan, almost triple what Aldnoah Zero received. Do they not want hits?

    • Anonymous says:

      As a former SAO fan, I’d say it’s because they totally fucked up their chances at a 3rd season. Friendzoning Asuna – sword in a gun mmo? paired with a completely random story arc in the second half? They had no fucking clue what they were doing after season 1.

        • Anonymous says:

          Asuna loves Kirito, right, and Kirito loves Asuna too, as far as I’m concerned.

          Doesn’t change the fact that Kawahara can’t write their relationship for shit and 50% of their interactions are Asuna needing help from Kirito to do something for her, 35% of simply sitting together and spouting cliched lover lines with zero actual chemistry, and the rest pretending like Yui is a big deal(she isn’t, they LITERALLY found her lying around randomly in the woods, that’s the biggest plot convenience I’ve ever seen in the history of anime).

          Not to mention Kawahara also has to shove in girl after girl to fall for his Stu Sword Jesus, because you know what, even he thought Kirito x Asuna is insignificant.

        Actually no. Considering the pace they adapt the light novels, it’d probably take 2 x 24/26 ep seasons to cover the Alicization arc. Unless they do a Danmachi and breeze through the material(I’d prefer that tbh).

    This is what they are making into anime? A clique ‘real world people show the fantasy world how it’s done’ childish bullshit?

    And this is supposed to be the flagship of this season’s jap nationalism?

    China has nothing to worry about than.

    The first episode was a good amount of nothing. I think the PV had more content. Also not much animation.

    What really disturbs me about this series is not the patriotism, patriotism in japanese anime is no different from patriotism in american anime. What really disturbs me is why bother with all the “modern warfare > magic” if later you put a magic god loli that can obliterate entire units. I mean, the only thing good about this is the premise and you are wasting it at the first chance.

      Japanese display nationalism. Americans display patriotism. Difference is summed up as such:

      “Patriotism is when a man loves his own country more than other countries; Nationalism is when a man hates other countries more than his own.”

      No one will be caught burning the union jack in the states during 4th of july. In contrast, with all the ignorance of japs who are throwing harassment at koreans and chinese who were victims of rapist genocidal imperialist jap invasion of ww2, you can clearly see the difference.

      This whole series is basically a very amusing and childish attempt at glorifying japs by placing them in a very favorable and festish-inspired situation where they will be seen as superior or having the advantage.


      Fuck yourself LOL

        America Patriotism goes far beyond just loving there country more then other countries. They love and will do anything for their country in the name of patriotism over any other country, person, law, or standard that isnt there’s and doesn’t follow their ‘constitution’ adequately enough. Which is variable to how benevolent they are feeling on any given day.

          So America pits itself against others, and acts upon them, just as any country in the world does – except America has the reach and power to back up their intent while for most of the world it’s just nationalistic masturbation.

          Funny how all the double standard of vilification applies only to america while china and japan can’t stop rioting and have international bitchfest over a few pieces of ocean rock, never mind not even properly apologizing for literally raping their way through history for each other and their own minorities.

        No, they’ll just burn Qorans and Afghani flags. Japan loves America Onii-san, and Finland, and it’s somewhat fond of the Thai… Compare and contrast the US and Mexico, or Cuba, or most places with Brown people.

        Oh great I guess that means any animes with characters that wears any sort of armor must be unoriginal now then?

        It’s a fucking fashion style, there’s far more “unoriginal” things you can actually nitpick on this anime, but this one is dumb.

      • Anonymous says:

        It’s called Gothic Lolita. The trope has existed for decades. This was written ten years ago anyway, so that character existed before Kuroneko did even so. And her being designed that way is literally a parody of older gothic lolita style characters.

        What IS “original” these days? >_>

        I support this post. Soon the days of ecchi anime with an ALL female cast will return to its former glory when Jap Otaku stop self inserting themselves as the generic MC’s.

        • Anonymous says:

          Except this guy doesn’t fit the bill of “generic”, as far as 1st ep is concerned.

          33 is twice the average age of the other “generic” MCs, if you hadn’t noticed, sure it would have been more unique and interesting if he does act his age, but still, this is a change.

      Hey, hey, fucking retard.
      You are the garbage. They have all right to be proud of their military too, just like how murrica always shits on all Axis countries and depicts themselves as some kind of heroes.

        Wait, wait, you little bitch

        The fuck you mouthing off about? Axis were genocidal, rapists and clear aggressors regardless of all your fuckin revisionist fantasies.

          @21:27 what economy? The US and Russia were the only ones making any money, and Russia’s only export was human casualties apparently. There wasnt any during the war for sure. And yes. Holy fuck it takes a heart of gold to rebuild a country of genocidal maniacs and their enablers, and a country who thought the rape of Nanking was a Japanese duty, led by an emperor who starved his country and decided that us completely obliterating a city wasnt serious.

          Fuck you, America and its Allies could have put the boot to both after the war but they didnt. Instead they built both up into literally the strongest economies after them. They sure as hell werent doing it themselves.

          Rebuilt them after they ruined them? What a fucking heart of gold! Not to mention they didn’t do it just to help, but because the market would have collapsed without them.
          Also Axis wasn’t more evil than Allies, just because the Holocaust casts a shadow on them.
          Stupid murrican pigs.

          ‘Screw overt’ afghans? Since when the fuck did America become afghan’s steward and caretaker? Do afghans need their diapers changed every morning by uncle Sam or do you just want to bitch and moan trying to somehow say america is responsible for shit you can’t ever dream of handling?

          Afghans clearly stated their intent to fight the soviets on their terms, for their own end. US aided them and both sides benefited – as equal partners in trade would. Their civil war, their internal strife, their infatuation with taliban which was funded largely by non american hands, is their fucking business.

          Vietnam? Since when did you fucking anti-american faggots care about every little country on earth unless it ‘seems’ to give you an excuse to bitch at US? My Lai was an exception, not a general rule. Why don’t you have the mouth to bitch at NVA who committed my lai on a weekly basis, or cuban invasion of angola for 20 years under similar circumstances, and waged a form of racial and invasive warfare against civilians that far exceeds US vietnam involvement?

          Maybe Americans should join in the shit flinging and start exaggerating stories about all the crimes non americans committed around the world than pretended they were ‘tradition/history’. I guarantee you faggots are in far deeper shit than any American in that regard.

          All these childish lies and obviously biased bitching and moaning against US is extremely amusing LOL

          Why yes, killing Nazis give the Americans a pass to go and screw over the Afghans right after the Soviet-Afghan war and screw over the Vietnamese during the Vietnam war.

          Get off your high horse. Your country has just as many skeletons in their closets as every other country. No nation goes to war for purely heroic reasons, despite what the propaganda says.

    “Hur dur this is Japanese propaganda”
    So, like most anime then? There really isn’t a single anime where a Japanese teenager or the government is somehow more competent than the rest of the planet. Not as different as American macho films, but at least those are self aware of their patriotic sillyness. It’s just a cartoon; I doubt most people will take this seriously.

    • Well, for one, most people don’t want to do their research.
      The story was created by a former JSDF soldier nearly a decade ago at first. So of course it will sensationalize the Japanese army somewhat. It’s what makes it fun for them too.
      Say they make some movie about the US army and they make it surreal and badass. If you are an average American, chances are you’ll love it. Same logic applies here.
      I also think that it being the 4th of July, some American sheep will be more patriotic and riled up than usual.
