Webmaster Review

78% Excellent

Anyway, the world view is interesting. It seems to be a simple combination, but it is well designed with details of culture and politics and can be highly appreciated. The daily scene is normal, but the battle scene moves well, and the SDF's coolness is well produced. It draws well both the special and real world backgrounds. Characters are also easy to understand, attractive and unique, and can be highly appreciated for their ability to keep viewers engaged.

Both the theme song and ED song are normal, but the sound is effective and the SDF's coolness is drawn well like the drawing. The impression that the view of the world and the characters themselves are unique and the precision of the detailed design is high.

2. Synopsis

Off-duty Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) officer and otaku, Youji Itami, is on his way to attend a doujin convention in Ginza, Tokyo when a mysterious portal in the shape of a large gate suddenly appears. From this gate, supernatural creatures and warriors clad in medieval armor emerge, charging through the city, killing and destroying everything in their path. With swift actions, Youji saves as many lives as he can while the rest of the JSDF direct their efforts towards stopping the invasion.

Three months after the attack, Youji has been tasked with leading a special recon team, as part of a JSDF task force, that will be sent to the world beyond the gate—now being referred to as the “Special Region.” They must travel into this unknown world in order to learn more about what they are dealing with and attempt to befriend the locals in hopes of creating peaceful ties with the ruling empire. But if they fail, they face the consequence of participating in a devastating war that will engulf both sides of the gate.

3. Proficiency can Learn Japanese with This Anime

The terminology that appears in the work is diverse, technical, and difficult only for anime that combines fantasy and the Self-Defense Forces. In addition, the lines of imperial forces from different worlds are historical and honorific is difficult to the highest level. SDF officials also use military terminology normally, and honorifics to the superior are extremely difficult.

Rory Mercury is an old-style spoken language and often uses religious terms. On the other hand, it has a strange habit of extending the ending. She looks like a teenager but is 961 years old. Piña Co Lada is also like an imperial princess, and the first person speaks in an ancient language like a historical drama.

There are a variety of fantasy terms, ancient languages, military terms, otaku terms, Japanese idioms, etc., and learning Japanese is very difficult.
