Madman Entertainment has made the fans wait a long time for season 3 of the series. However, as of April 2021, they still haven’t given any confirmation regarding the series’s renewal. The cause behind this delay range from the raging pandemic to the low popularity of the series itself.

But, all is not lost. The series has its very own manga adaptation as well, which fans can easily access on Crunchyroll. Fans can also watch the latest episodes of their favourite anime in English Dub/Sub on Crunchyroll and Viz Media.

The Story And Plot Of “Gate”

The story is set in Tokyo, Japan. On one fine day, out of nowhere, a portal to another world suddenly opens, through which soldiers in Ancient Roman attire and magical beasts invade to infiltrate and take Japan and, subsequently – the earth.

However, the aliens’ weapons are nothing but useless against the Japan Self Defense Force (JSDF). JSDF, with their more modern weapons, are easily able to counterattack the enemy and use their tactics against themselves. Hence, the JSDF is successfully able to drive the enemy back and infiltrate their world.

The story revolves around Yōji Itami, an officer in JSDF. Itami is sent through the Gate to the new world as a peacekeeper and a negotiator. Itami, upon entering the foreign land, is astonished to see a world full of magic. A world where every fairy tale comes true. A world with magical beasts and magical creatures. Upon spending some time in this new world, Itami begins to sympathise with its people. Itami finds himself helping the people of this magical world, one of them being the  Imperial Princess Piña Co Lada, thus being an excellent example of a “peacekeeper”.

However, it seems that the civil unrest between the two worlds is not the only problem. The Gate initially opened and stabilized by magic is slowly but steadily disturbing the balance of space and time. With every passing hour, the disturbance in the balance of nature begins to cause an interplanetary cataclysm.  A disaster that can end up eradicating the existence of both worlds.
