Episode six...well, that escalated quickly. Now I'm not sure what to think, again.

It could be interesting, but (based only on the second episode) I'm not sure that going the "detectives" route is the best direction for the show. I was also disappointed that they didn't go with the rather obvious joke of Otosaka sneaking a peek at the photo of Tomori before tossing it to her.

Just wait until you see episode 9. I think the story is really going to get good now.

Re: 2015 Summer Simulcasts

Seems like Maeda's response to Steins;Gate, lol.

The story of Charlotte doesn't truly begin till episode 9; then you've only got 4 episodes to go...

Time travel + flashback + amnesia + handwaving + retcon doormat's powers + imouto not dead + bro-kun exists.

Stack enough plot devices on top of each other and maybe they’ll all cancel out. Isn’t it nice that everyone was secretly all connected to everyone else all along? Funny how it always works out like that.

Second Season of "Gate" Anime Scheduled

This week's broadcast of episode 12 of Gate, "What Would Itami Do," has ended with the news that the adaptation of Takumi Yanai's military fantasy novel series will be returning in January 2016 for the "Dragon Flame Chapter."

No big surprise. It's been obvious for a few weeks that they couldn't end the series at Episode 12. Originally, I was expecting them to slow it down and finish when the characters returned from Tokyo. But they flew through that and went straight into the Dark Elf/Flame Dragon arc.

Re: 2015 Summer Simulcasts

Well they originally stated and announced GATE as a 24 episode series before it even started. So we knew 12 wasn't the end. However Heavy Object is slated for it's time-slot so yeah.

Seems like more and more shows are getting single or split-cours instead of running on. Seraph of the End took the split-cour route as well.

Re: 2015 Summer Simulcasts

So, GATE is 24-episode series, no more than that? I don't follow manga and I'm watching as it goes.

Just because they originally announced 24 episodes doesn't mean they can't come back with a part 3 announcement later. =)
