Sorry for fossil bumping.

I really liked GK21 than GK. Even though its muc more darker and has a little funny scenes compared to GK I guess it pretty stands on its own. Like others said, its so short.

So any of you guys have already read Gatekeepers 1985?

That depends on if someone manage(or care) to tranlate the novel. I'm still wanting to read it. I've planning on re-watch GK and GK21. ayane is my favourite character of the entire franchise(she's a tragic hero but that doesen't prevent her from being the most Badass Gatekeeper of the series, seriously, the girl is hardcore when invaders are involved).

Sorry for more fossil bumping xDU.

Well I just realized why Miu wants to change. In one scene she is with a guy. They are leaving a love motel. Yes Compensated Dating and what it entails.

Well saving the world could be more worthwhile than being with older men.

I offered to translate, no one seemed to care enough to get back to me, so I forgot about it.

Did I just fossil bump? Haha

Spoiler alert:

The last fight does not occur, there was just a brief account, kinda a let down.

@Davyu - can i ask for a translation or a summary of what happened during the novel?
Its so hard to learn how to understand japanese, i have the novel but i dont understand a damn thing. . . It would be so great if you could

GK 1985 is just a light novel, if i could only read japanese, i could have translated it a long time ago, oh well. . . 300 pages. . .

Gk 21.... ooohhh. Ayane's pretty damned awesome; it's unfortunate that it only had a few episodes and that ending Z_Z

Haha, alright, I'll resume my work some time tonight. As I said in my original post, it's only going to be a laid back translation, mainly so you guys could read the story... while i'm at it, can someone work out how i can 'share' it, so people could find it?

just finished reading the GK1985 novel , if only i had more time, i could have done this 2 years earlier


sorry i dont know how to use the spoiler function it doesnt work for me


note that the following is a heavy spoiler for the novel


the novel mainly focuses on the the battle with Gentlemen of God of Death who together with Infinite Beast and Girl of Ghost (she appears in GK21) almost destroyed the entire AEGIS in 1970. By letting Infinite Beast transforms into the Boss of AEGIS in New York Headquarter to isolate each branch, then use Girl of Ghost's teleportation ability to bring Gentleman of God of Death to everywhere for the massacres. Fei and Reiko do not appear in this novel as Fei returns to China and Reiko is on vocation. Ruriko overuses her Gate to heal all the victims and i think she loses her power after healing Shun who barely survives after has been looked at twice by Gentlemen of God of Death (absorb lives by looking at the targets). in the end of the battle Shun manages to kill Infinite Beast but unfortunately the other 2 escape. Shun keeps blaming himself for this for the following 15 years until Kageyama invites him to rejoin AEGIS. There are not much detail about the final battle that Shun has with Gentlemen of God of Death in 1985, Kageyama just reads a report that tells they both died, and this is the end of the novel. 1 funny thing is that Kageyama's other Gate is the Gate of Sight which allows him to do some sort of prediction for future, this is different from the German girl in anime as she predicts physical movement only, with the Gate of Sight, Kageyama is able to see some sort of the outcome for a particular event, although sometimes he fails or it is not very clear

Thanks for the summary. Doesn't really sate my almost decade long desire to read it, but I can close the book on this series (mentally, at least).

Haha so do I still need to do the dirty translation work? I'm only about 50% done, I could put it on hold...

Yea, I posted earlier on asking if anyone wanted it. I don't read Japanese either, it's going to be a double translation, I'm translating from the Chinese version. But doesn't seem worthwhile if no one's interested...

Yea probably will do. The book is fairly long, I usually get bursts of urges to translate about 10% of it, then I get demotivated and lazy haha.
