In Volume 2 of The New Gate, our main character, Shin, continues to do what every MMORPG player does best: go on quests. Using the adventurer guild's quest board, he finds rank-appropriate challenges to undertake (even though he could actually do anything he wants) and continues to gather information about the world, resolving incidents as they come along.

Manga Worth Reading reviews The New Gate Vol 1

Filed under: News — Staff @ 15:56:52

What sets this book apart from other Isekai is the concept. Shin is overpowered, like many isekai protagonists. Unlike just about every other story of its type, there's a reason he's as strong as he is. He earned all his powers and skills through years of grinding in the MMO version of The New Gate. The isekai version may not be exactly the world he remembers. But, it's close enough that he can walk around and do things without feeling like an outsider.

AnimeNation Reviews The Spear Hero

Filed under: News — Staff @ 15:55:23

Aneko Yusagi's 2012 light novel series Rising of the Shield Hero, while not as macabre and gothic as something like Kentaru Miura's Berserk, is nonetheless a morose story about a protagonist's long battle for external and internal peace.

Sequential Ink Reviews The New Gate Volume 1

Filed under: News — Staff @ 14:03:51

For decades now, anime and manga have churned out story after story about people becoming trapped within a virtual reality world, and their adventures as they seek an escape from their digital prison. Numerous series have been built upon this premise, including the classic .hack franchise, but also more contemporary works such as Real Account. Fans of the genre can now add The New Gate—Yoshiyuki Miwa's adaption of Shinogi Kazanami's novel of the same name—to this ever growing list. What sets The New Gate apart from the others, is how it repurposes the endgame of many of the series into a starting point and the potential for it to delve into the aftermath of such events.

Filed under: News — Staff @ 13:38:37

It's hard to describe Hinamatsuri as anything but pure insanity. The series has come a long way from its hilarious beginnings, and it's somehow managed to become even crazier in the process. Volume 6 puts this on full display, playing to the strenghts of its amazing cast and showcasing some of the series' best humor to date.
