Gate – Thus the JSDF Fought There!

Gate - Thus the JSDF Fought There! light novel

In August of 20XX, a portal to a parallel world, known as the “Gate”, suddenly appeared in Ginza, Tokyo. Monsters and troops poured out of the portal, turning the shopping district into a bloody inferno.

The Japan Ground-Self Defence Force immediately took action and pushed the fantasy creatures back to the “Gate”. To facilitate negotiations and prepare for future fights, the JGSDF dispatched the Third Reconnaissance Team to the “Special Region” at the other side of the Gate.

Youji Itami, a JSDF officer as well as a 33-year-old otaku, was appointed as the leader of the Team. Amid attacks from enemy troops the team visited a variety of places and learnt a lot about the local culture and geography.

Thanks to their efforts in humanitarian relief, although with some difficulties they were gradually able to reach out to the locals. They even had a cute elf, a sorceress and a demigoddess in their circle of new friends. On the other hand, the major powers outside the Gate such as the United States, China, and Russia were extremely interested in the abundant resources available in the Special Region. They began to exert diplomatic pressure over Japan.

A suddenly appearing portal to an unknown world – to the major powers it may be no more than a mere asset for toppling the international order. But to our protagonists, it is an invaluable opportunity to broaden knowledge, friendship, and ultimately their perspective towards the world.

  • There’s no way there still isn’t a raw for the 6th novel.

  • I can’t believe after all this time no one has bothered to translate the 6th volume.

  • Actually I have to absolutely Agree to Yonan its the only light Novel I have enjoyed where I would prefer the Anime over the Novel.
    It’s not that the Novell is bad but the Anime is just more Fun.
    Also, the 2 Part that’s not in the Anime feels disconnected we follow a new Main Char on a submarine also the JDF starts losing fights and the Portal starts opening to weird Places (I just say Alien Franchise) overall it’s going much darker and the most fun I had was the OP Action I know that cheap but I like it ^^ So in General if you like the Anime for his OP Action and the Main char I suggest stick to the Anime and have fun with It you won’t get more out of the Novel and maybe even lose something on the way.

  • Great read. Thanks mate

  • An enjoyable but flawed series imo and about the only LN I preferred the anime over. I don’t mind the injection of the writers politics which usually is a deal breaker, because it’s from another country and thus not annoying to me. Some great characters and the concept of fantasy world tied to our modern world and the military combat between them is great, it’s just not fulfilled as well as it could be.
