That make me wonder how could Lelei's mother world exist for so long and those guys in the emire be arrogant enough to immediately land an attack to a completely unknown world? It's hard for me to believe earth is the most dangerous world they ever entered...

Pretty sure the last time the gate opened was before the Empire even existed.
It may have been when humans first came to that world, and it may have been connected to our Roman Empire times.

(humans, elves, dwarves, etc are not native to that world)

... please do tell me Sugawara is with Itami's bunch and can probably brofist pedobear for winning the affections of the loli XD

also, I wonder how would the nobles react to seeing what a battery of 155's could do. if they could be wide eyed at the small arms and mortars, I can imagine their terror on seeing what the cobras could do as well as the rape factor of the MBT's.

and I dont think the tanks' in the gate are gonna load sabots since I dun think a tank sabot could harm a thick castle wall IMO but they ARE gonna have HE all around (I dunno what HEAT rounds could be do good to ground targets IMO.

And if the noble's saw an F-4 dropping a 1,000 pound general purpose bomb they'd really want no part of that.

As for castles, in WWII modern artillery and tank rounds had a reduced effect against the walls of European castles. A good curtain wall could hold up at least for awhile. However automatic weapons would keep the embrasures and arrow slits clear of enemies, and attacking troops should be able to gain the ramparts with minimal casualties.

the gate ALWAYS open to a world that is a higher civilization/MP/powerful world than the existent one. the empire KNEW that. since they came from the gate, too. to forestall the invasion, they did send recon scouts to kidnapped some hostages from Shinjuku, and comes to the wrong conclusion that the opposite site (Japan) are weak. so Augusta try to strike first, their original plan was if the new civilization on the other side is stronger, they will sue for peace, etc.

no, there are hints in book 1, 250 years ago the empire drove back the invading horse riding nomads after heavy losses.

there are proofs that multiple human civilizations were visited, Loli at 960+ is older than the empire, Loli is human, and Lelei is human, yet she does not consider herself empire. the empire, most likely from our Rome, is able to conquer this world because of their Rome civilization/technology compare to all the other kingdoms on the continent.

when xxxxx open a hole, without doing anything to it, the hole will AUTOMATICALLY shut itself after a short period of time, (when the two worlds separate) so you have infusion of outer culture without totally annihilate the original natives, what you see at chapter one as the outer frame of the GATE is actually the empire magician's doing, to force the hole not to close, thus creating the problem of instability, etc.

book 4 explaining how gate works and book 5 of facing the consequences.

and telling them it's just a simple "dumb" bomb and there's another that knows what its gonna hit.

since the shock and awe tactic in the capital had para'd into the city as vanguards for the main unit, it really does help with the pinning down of the enemy trying to use the slits in the walls and battlements (btw is it really possible to parachute into a castle tower without the chute snagging and stuff?) tho.

and for Itami's team, isn't there anyone lugging around a shotgun? let the nobles shoot that and probably see them mock the "tube that fires a massive spray of metal balls" until someone shows them the danger it poses even to melee units.

I had this theory long ago that the world on the other side of the gate may have been a migration point but people kept shooting it down...

I translated '山海楼防衛戦' as Sankai Mansion Defensive War for tankoubon 3 chapter list.
Is this the right translation?

Don't you think that now the gate is close, Itami will become the avatar of and Leilei Hardy's. Hardy open the gate and create a new avatar and link the new world to her/his dominion.

that is correct, but a bit stiff word by word, some other possibilities including "Battle for Sankai Resort", "Defense of Sankairo", etc.

Thank you, I think 'Defense of Sankai Resort" is the best option.

Well duh. Yes, I know that. I read the books myself.
It simply wasn't relevant to what I was saying, which is if the gate opened to a world that's TOO destructive in the past, like oh I dunno, Ridley Scott's Alien world, Hardy could do some damage control without just letting the shit hit the fan.
