Description: 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.

only chance for the empire is to somehow team up with an enemy of Japan otherwise they are boned 

Spoiler

I love light military/war manga. But a very serious one is not my thing. Maybe I just like their badass uniform and weapons. Either way, I like comedy and romance on them.

So .. is there still no one in that story who´s planning to combine modern technology with magic to create something extremly valuable: A magical reactor that´s to be used as plant to supply incredible amounts of energy? Using magic for combat purpose only instead of using it for large scale rituals with huge economic benefits seems like a waste, I guess.

Looks a lot like what japan has experienced but turned the other way around "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

Lots of references too (i laughed at the type moon's fate references for the code names used by the jsdf (saber, archer, caster, rider and holy grail xD)

yes, it's probably crappy translation. It should be JSDF.

No, it's called a military branch http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan_Air_Self-Defense_Force, the F-4EJ is part of the air force, not the land one.

Also, can't wait if they ever going to put their almighty JMSDF on the action too (although not likely considering the Gate's location is land-locked).

I'm not even sure why the JASDF (Is there a difference between JSDF and JASDF or is JASDF just a shitty translation?) decided to strike the palace with an airstrike in the first place. Aside from sending a message to the capital about their overwhelming might, I'm pretty sure that ended peace negotiations forever?

Also if you want to apply for cleaner's position, you should do it on different page, not on the page of online reader. (Google: ak-scans)

 

reasons, why did JSDF attack empire?
1st)
story: imagine you are making peace negotiation, you want to release some war prisoners (you treat them with respect) and they you find out, that YOUR citizens are slaves in enemy country (in case of women: they are sex-slaves, as you could see in Ch.30 and Ch.33 :P )

And add the fact, that rest of world is putting the pressure on Japan to be more agressive.

2nd)
The manga's rating were slowly going down, 'cause it was full of negotiations and similar stuff (admit it: nobody likes political bullshit) and that's why author has decided to spice things up.

I'm not even sure why the JASDF (Is there a difference between JSDF and JASDF or is JASDF just a shitty translation?) decided to strike the palace with an airstrike in the first place. Aside from sending a message to the capital about their overwhelming might, I'm pretty sure that ended peace negotiations forever?

 

In any case, I really really loathe the translations on this manga and rather than just sit here and complain, I'd like to help out. I don't speak, read, or write japanese but I'm an excellent English speaker and cleaning up the embarassingly large number of typos would be fairly trivial for me. Is there a place with raws I can edit? I could just cut out text from the white speech bubbles and put in edited/fixed wording, but for the embedded wording that's actually part of the original image, I have no idea how to do that part. I'm proficient in GIMP and can learn though. Been wanting to help out on the translation scene in some way and this manga deserves the love.

 

I might even help out the light novel translators at some point too.

Precision bombing brings "FREEDOM" with every blast

I concur.

let-me-show-you-how-democracy-works-i679

I was just thinking of future possibilities.  Also the fact that magic can be used in our world too brought up many possibilities don't you think?

 

I'm too lazy to confirm, but I think someone made a comment about using magic for nuclear detonation.  Something like that happened in the novel Quicksilver's Knight by Christopher Stasheff. One of the characters split an atom (1 atom) and terrified the people around him with the result. His brother was NOT amused.

Any idea how good the dwarven blacksmiths in this world are?  If they can create a strong enough metal tube and bullets/shells then have a mage use explosion magic in lieu of gun powder you have yourself a semi-magical gun/cannon/artillery.  The magic Lelei showed her master seems powerful enough for a rifle.

 

There are probably a few smiths capable of it. I mean it was a dwarven smith who made Rori's halberd. But Lelei is the only mage who has developed "explosion" magic at this point.

Baka-Tsuki has a teaser of the novel.  Not much chance of it getting upgraded to a full project though.  Last I look there are only two translators and from what I heard the novels are THICK.

 

The two translators listed are actually KIA (they dropped out). Would be nice if the publisher did a translation, even if just for e-books or POD.

 

The thickness of the original novels is part of the reason they have split each into two LN types with the re-print (as well as a rumored bit more editing of the right winger stuff).

Needs more Kurokawa

I am dying! This new chapter was goddamn intense. It's gonna be a long next couple of weeks to find out what happens next.

 

Are the original novels for this translated into english anywhere? Also, are there any other manga that are similar to this one? Zero No Tsukaima is one I've read and watched in all its forms, I also enjoyed Outbreak Company... any others like that?

you will be disappointed mate, cause if I was Itami commander i would praise him for discovering such a important piece of information, no matter the means...

Don't read this if you don't want a key spoil.

 

Spoiler

nothing say f*** you like an airstrike with jdams on an empty building with the emperor's chair getting blown to hell.

As satisfying as it was

Doesn't matter who signed what ... lets be honest now no army or country follows the rules completely (especially who your focusing at, which is from someone like kuro - shes not the type to not be agressive back - Soldiers are still human after all and you should know how humans are), the rules are just there to minimize the atrocities that the civilians don't want to hear (even if they would probably do the same in the situation). If its something small it is easier/ possible to hide no? Thats where the politicians come in - they also make the rules to cheat the rules for the best interest or just to make things easier for themselves - it is hard to deal with customer complaints after all right?    :D

I love the pun in the chapter.  Pair of F-4's delivering the "message", flown by none other than God.  So, the Empire has received a message from God.  lol

It's air raid time :)

As satisfying as it was

Spoiler

We have seen the aircrafts...

 

Now bring me the tanks!!!
