Gate - Jietai Kare no Chi nite, Kaku Tatakeri (Novel)  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
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.

Note: The volumes are in pairs, which is why the chapter numbers reset every 2 volumes

First of all boy am I glad this is finally getting translated. But even with the speedy pace of translations it's gonna be a looong while until it catches up to the story from the scanlated manga chapters. If you haven't read the manga yet and don't intend to then go ahead and read this, it's the original source material after all. But if you've already read the manga than this is just a replay of the early chapters without the pretty art and a shitload of political exposition inserted at random that will bore you to tears.

Hey, I've read the manga up until the most recent update... I've also seen the anime too. The only thing is I am waiting until the story releases up until/or past the manga. Then I will read it all in one go and savor it.

Is this a different take on the scenario of "Outbreak Company"? There (so far) only japan knows, and has some light hearted approaches and many Otaku-Culture references, but a serious undertone. I haven't read this yet, but can those who did tell me if this is similar or more serious?

Interesting story, yet not the best version

I have just finished reading the translation of the first volume of the Light Novel by Skythewood. The story is good, characters are funny and somewhat relatable.

The biggest downside to the work is in the pacing. It bogs down in details in some places while skipping huge stretches in other. Secondly the writing itself isn't the best, connected to the first point. A high action scene has the normal sentence structure and word choices, not imparting the frenzy in how one reads it.

Overall it is very good, I just feel the manga patches up the pacing a bit and thus handled the first volume best.

Have not read this yet until more chapter is translated, but I am reading the manga version. I know there are differences in manga, LN, and anime version (have not watch the anime yet either).

-First off: this novel was originally a web novel before it turn into a novel (book form).
-Two: There are two version of light novel of this novel; the original version (which should be call a Novel itself giving the number of page it has) and the new version (which I assume they split the original novel into several books to be call a "light novel").

The differences (in general) between the differences media if it originate from a novel:
-Novel: Originate Media; full detail, depending on which demographic the writer is to aiming for there will be scenes, languages, events, and/or actions in the novel that some reader will disagree/dislike upon.
-Manga: General to Minimum detail, viewers friendly (depend on the genre & demographic)
-Anime: Minimum detail to low detail, viewers friendly (depend on the genre & demographic)
