A gate appears in Tokyo's Ginza district sometime in the 21st century. From the gate pours out monsters, knights from middle-age Europe, and other fantasy-like beings, and they kill many of the citizens of Tokyo. This event is known as the Ginza Incident.

The government sends a small group of soldiers from the Japanese Self-Defense Forces (a replacement for Japan's military) to the alternate world beyond the gate. Led by otaku soldier Youji, they find that the villages in the world are being attacked by a dragon. An elf girl who is a survivor from the dragon's rampage joins the group in their travels across the dangerous new world.

Absolutely amazing

Absolutely awesome manga.

Manga tells a story about conflict between ancient civilization and modern japan in realistic way. Main character is part of Japan unit which explores word beyond gate. Soon his grop grows and they are mixed in various things from politics to hunting bandits to trade.

Other interesting part of manga is how world reacts to sudden appearance of gate. It is obvious that big players want to get into that unknown world and japan needs to play its card right fending off superpowers of modern times.

Our hero also in non standard one. He does have wife in modern world but he isn't really interested in her nor he is interested in anything really. He is very effective in what he does but at same time he isn't very enthusiastic about it. And that is really refreshing because in 99% other manga titles main charcter is mentally retarded kid that gets enthusiastic about everything.

People keep telling it is harem. It looks that way on surface but there is no harem since there is not romance at all here. Only character that tries to get along with main character is Rory but that is probably more about curiosity than love itself. Other than that no character tries to go into romance area.

Fan service is strong here. Normally and due to circumstances. Rape isn't really rare thing in ancient times and manga does not shy away from it.

If you do not like seeing manga that looks down on foreigners, this is definitely not for you. Xenophobia is glaringly present. The focus is written by an ex-JSDF soldier whose politics skew the story a lot but the story does an excellent job of showing the power of even the less significant millitaries in the world compared to ancient times. It also does a good job of articulating the motives of various countries, if not their actions.

I'm not too fond of the melee portions though. Ancient fighters w/ armor and weapons should be able to put up a better fight against a soldier with fixed bayonet if said soldier did not bother shooting.

The combat is superbly rendered while the people are drawn a bit rough. The story can get a bit dark, especially if it focuses on the empire which is like a showcase of all the worst aspects of ancient Europe.

I been put off of reading this for a long time now due to conflicting comments and the image that they created. They go on a lot about the otaku and the harem and other things which didnt really make me wanna read it but i had a lot of time so i gave it a go and it was nothing like how they described it. It has a very interesting plot and the harem/main being an otaku are a very small factor in the overall story.

i don't know why people stereotype this as usual harem who from the start every girl like him
well, i saw that there will be more girl to like him, it's just he is not in their "route" yet

the main point of this story is most likely how to utilize the discovery, either people, culture and resources
the battle is less significance but the politic is awesome

the story have long way to go, so i hope it won't get axed in the middle of story

>people calling it a harem
You people keep using that word, I don't think it means what you think it means.
The only girl with an actual interest in him is Rory, the others are just bystanders.
That aside, the setting is interesting enough, and even if the political part isn't as engaging as vinland saga it's still a fun fantasy manga to read. Miles better than the horseshit berserk has turned into over the last 10 years.

The idea is good, but stamps ruined all

Originally idea is very good. But when the story goes on the details became more and more idiotic. Because of stamps which is everywhere. Typical spineless protagonist, typical harem, typical platonic relationships between hero and other harem, typical mistakes in psychology. If you want to read a standard history about hero and harem with full of stamps then welcome. Otherwise I do not recommend.

Pros and Cons list (for those who are always tl;dr)
+ Awesome awesome awesome premise! Love the combining of the different realms into one epic manga! Cool,'s terribly executed. Terrible.

- Characters are superficial, there's no depth in them. The main character is a joke, his attitude toward this entire situation does not fit (he acts like he care, but the way he is portray, he comes off as careless, an otaku who stumpled onto this job really).

- The entire story comes off as a joke. Nothing is taking serious in this manga, at last they dont seem like they are serious. The world politics in this is a sham, even a 14 year old can do better :\

- Also the harem surrounding the main character. I dont mind if it's done well and the main character DESERVE one, but this otaku army weakass, no. The plot give him one for no apparently reason! Seems like this manga rather attract male gfless reader with boobs than provide a good story. If this is you, go read To Love-ru Darkness instead, way better manga than this.

- this is seinen, make it realistic (in terms of interactions and way issues are dealt with) please, dont give me any of those shounen crap, this is suppose to be seinen, but it is not acting like one so far.

+ Plus for the mix of elves, mages, dragons ect. Now put them to good use please!

+/- Epic battles, I like epic battles between rocket launcher and dragon too, but the sequence and action is poorly written

Bottom line, this manga does not deserve the 9 rating it currently possesses. It's a shallow story with terrible characters, and just plain bad interactions between characters. Go read berserk or vinland saga, they earn their ratings by providing everything above.

Got into this via reading about Outbreak Company. This is basically the older, more mature and grittier version of the former. The story is interesting, the portrayal of a competent modern military force in a fantasy setting is refreshing instead of the usual "Oh noes magic makes our bullets useless!". The main characters have equal amounts funny, interesting and awesome. I really hope an English translation of the light novel goes well under way and the scanlation of this gem of a manga to continua at a steady pace. That is if this manga is popular enough in Japan to continue on for as long as the LNs goes (I'm praying.)

Highly recommend you give this a try.

Japanese manga version of Stargate   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

Anybody familiar with the Stargate movie and television series would be fair in making comparisons between this manga and that license. The concept behind both of them is so similar you can't help but wonder if the author was influenced by the Stargate series when he began writing this manga. That of course does not mean this is a bad series, far from it, it is very interesting with great art and playing upon the age-old concept of what would happen if the people, culture, and technology of the past collided with the present/future with a magic twist akin to those seen in fantasy RPGs like World of Warcraft. It's certainly more original to see something like this in a manga series than most of the other shounen stuff flooding the market these days. Highly recommended!

One of the Best Hidden Gems out there!

This manga is Seriously UNDERRATED! I didn't even know this manga existed until tumbling upon it by accident and oh boy what a Gem it turned out to be...

The story concept is nothing new or special. Somehow a gate to another world appears in Japan and a small group of JSDF soldiers are sent their to explore the country/continent and learn as much as possible while establishing connections within that world. The execution on the other hand is really good: Likeable characters (especially the squad leader), good humor, nice art and action make this series extraordinary.

The characters are the selling point of the series no doubt about it. The personalities and how they play off each other is always fun to read. LT Itami really makes the series though with his Otaku nature clashing with the more Serious military affairs is really Fun to read
