The rest of this article is going to bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season 3 of Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri. You’re going to find out about its potential release date, whether there is a trailer, what the story could be about, and much more about this extremely popular new anime series.
Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri Season 3 release date
An anime adaptation of Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri was produced by A-1 Pictures and directed by Takahiko Kyōgoku. The series’ character designs are based on the light novel’s illustrations. The first 12 episodes (Season 1) aired in Japan between July 4 and September 18, 2015. It was streamed online by Crunchyroll and is licensed by Sentai Filmworks in North America. The second half (Season 2) aired on Tokyo MX from January 9 to March 26, 2016.

Unlike some other anime series we’ve talked about, Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri is not one of those whose future is uncertain because it’s new. The series and the adaptations have been there for a while, but we don’t actually know why we haven’t received news of another series, or a movie, for example (which would not be surprising at this point, really).
Both the light novel series and the manga are fairly popular, and that cannot be denied. Sure, it’s not popular as some other similar titles, but it has its following and the sales are doing pretty well for an isekai title. Plus, the story is intriguing and it has a lot of unique traits that make is to likable.
Everything we know about the show’s popularity points to Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri coming back at one point or another, but the issue is that it’s been years since we’ve had any news on the show and that is rarely a good thing in the world of anime (although it doesn’t necessarily have to be a death sentence, no). Still, due to the six-year period that has passes we ultimately think that the future of Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri is more uncertain than not.
Taking all of this into account, Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri‘s future seems very uncertain. The source works are, as we have said, quite popular, as was the anime series, but in all honestly, the fact that it’s been six years since the last adaptation doesn’t make us hopeful. In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is 2023, but a more realistic scenario is either late 2023 or even 2024, if it even happens.
Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri Season 3 trailer
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri season 3, which means that you’ve probably deduced for yourselves that there is no trailer for the third season of Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri. This is because we do not know whether there will even be a third season of the show, which means that a trailer might not appear at all. Based on the time of the last adaptation, this doesn’t seem like an impossible outcome.
As we have said, Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri could be revived at any moment, but based on how many years have passed, we cannot give you anything concrete. The light novel series and the manga still have more material up for adapting and the anime was quite popular at the time, but we have to wait and see whether there are actual plans for a continuation before we can make a proper prediction. Be that as it may, Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri is currently on a long hiatus (the anime) and we do not know if it will come back.
Taking into account everything we’ve said, a trailer for Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri is unlikely to come out this year. The earliest we could see a trailer is 2023, but we would have to get confirmation of a second season sometime during 2022 for that to happen.
Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri Season 3 plot
At this moment, we do not know which parts of the light novel and manga series are going to be adapted in the potential Season 3 of Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri. Namely, due to a lack of information in general, we have absolutely no clue how far the third season might go, if it even happens. The only thing we know for sure is that it will continue the adventure of the show’s protagonists. What follows is a general overview of the show’s plot.
One day, a “gate” opens in the middle of Tokyo’s busiest shopping district, Ginza, and an army of monsters and ancient soldiers emerges and massacres them, but after a brief moment of surprise, the Japanese Army (SDF) and police are able to repel them. The enemy army turns out to be from another world where magic does exist, but which is otherwise very similar to the Roman Empire from a cultural and technological point of view.
The Japanese government sends the SDF to the other side of the gate – dubbed the “Special Region” – to establish a beachhead to secure their country and force those responsible for the attack to negotiate. The protagonist of the story is Lieutenant Yōji Itami, a 33-year-old certified Special Forces soldier, otaku and idler, whose purpose in life he sees solely in his hobby.
During the invasion of Ginza, where he happened to attend a doujinshi event, he escorts a large number of civilians to safety and organizes the first defense effort, earning him acclaim as a hero and a promotion. On the other side of the gate, he is sent on reconnaissance missions to learn more about the world and its inhabitants, befriending the high elf Tuka Luna Marceau; the young magician Lelei La Lelena, who learned the Japanese language very quickly and therefore worked as a translator and mediator between the two cultures.
Rory Mercury, an immortal demigod and apostle of the death god Emroy; and with the Dark Elf Yao Haa Dushi. Itami and his squad take part in various peacekeeping and humanitarian missions while in the Special Region, gradually gaining the people’s trust. After helping Imperial Princess Piña Co Lada fight a horde of bandits and witnessing the Japanese army’s technological superiority, the princess tries everything to persuade her father, Emperor Molto Sol Augustus, to make peace with the Japanese government to search.
However, the peace effort is threatened by hostile elements: the US, Russia and China envy Japan’s free access to this new world, which for them represents a new, pristine source of resources; and the Emperor’s eldest son, the arrogant and insane Zorzal El Caesar, seeks revenge on the Japanese after Itami frees a Japanese prisoner from his clutches and severely humiliates him in the process.
Zorzal proclaims himself emperor and prepares to start a new war against Japan that threatens to bring the empire to the brink of annihilation. The SDF sees itself forced to actively intervene in the country’s political events in order to maintain the status quo and the chance for mutual peace.
