Jumping on this bandwagon a little late. The story of this series is basically that a portal to some other dimension/parallel world opens up and fantasy game monsters and soldiers start wreaking havoc in Japan. The military is able to push these forces back lead by Youji Itami, an off-duty JSDF officer who is promoted in recognition. While I’m not a huge fan of Itami’s personality as the goofball leader, I actually thought his interactions with Takeo Kurata were pretty funny to watch.
It looks like next week will start the battle between the JSDF and the fantasy warriors (working name). I’m not even sure if the other side’s heroines will be introduced given that the preview features characters from the JSDF only. I’m assuming this story devolves into a standard “we need to unite the two worlds” story…is this a Tales story? It has the correct setup so far…one side is technologically advanced and the other presumably relies heavily on some form of magic.
