Description
From MangaHelpers:

One day in the 21st century, a gate opened in the middle of the Ginza district of Tokyo. Out of the gate poured soldiers and strange creatures, and they soon made Ginza look like an image of hell. The gate apparently connected Japan to another world, a world with a militant empire and many supernatural creatures. The Japanese Self-Defense Force decided to send a small group, led by a soldier who's also an otaku, into the other world on a reconnaissance mission. They're meant to learn what they can about the empire (and its plans), the world, and the people.

They're hardly in the world yet, though, when they come across a village destroyed by a giant fire-breathing dragon. The only survivor is an unconscious elven girl they find hidden in a well. Now they feel like they must warn the nearby towns about the dragon, and do what they can to help. On the way, they'll meet more magical, female companions, and learn more about this dangerous new world. [tethysdust]

nice concept   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

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.

Does not deserve the rating

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, but...it'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.

Absolutely loving this series!

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
by JuggaloWarrior
September 29th, 2013, 9:08pm
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

MUST READ!!!

Ruined by otaku garbage   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

August 24th, 2013, 5:28am
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
A gothic lolita, JRPG elves, catgirls and a main character that's both an anime and army otaku, though most of the cast seems to cream themselves over this or that piece of military hardware. It's otaku-pandering garbage, which is a shame because the concept is good. But if you're a gun nut or in the military and you really like the military, then some of the scenes in it will appeal to you - Ride of The Valkyries taken straight from Apocalypse Now, comes to mind.

What a great mixed genre!

I must admit that the author is a genius "bartender" who can mix different flavor into one beautiful taste... Mixed genre usually creates an interesting story setting but weak story development, but not this one... I dunno, but i usually found many interesting manga based on novel adaptation. Is it just me or the light novel in Japan is really that good?
