The closest thing to it I can think of is a Hughes 500 Model 369D. The Japanese have an OH-6D which would look much like it, but I believe it's being phased out.

JSDF uses tons of Cold War vintage hardware in "Special Region": Type 64 rifles, Huey helichopters, F-4 fighters... And when they fight, it is Curb-Stomp Battle all the way. Guess modern hardware guards the Japan from more modern armies...

Was/is it common for observation helicopters to take part to fight like in that panel?

In latest chapter (26) of the Gate - Thus the JSDF Fought There Japan has started do trade with locals. I noticed some japanese civilians, but it is JSDF officer counting income of the local currency. In case of silver and gold coins (both confirmed in earlier chapters), those could be sold in Japan as silver and gold. But it looks to me those coins are saved for later use in "Special Region". Anyway JSDF base, or at least its immediate neighborhood, has become trade center.

Do we know any real or historical examples about such happening? Does american bases in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere sell commercial goods to local merchants? What about garrison bases of the Ancient Rome in Gaul, Egypt, Britannia, and elsewhere?

Why is this thread still so short? Anime OVA Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail is getting official release in english language. Those who don't know about it: Black Lagoon is manga and anime serie about smugglers equipped with torpedo boat in south-east Asia. Roberta's Blood Trail is about their nemesis coming back with a vengeance.

Dark elf woman comes seeking aid of the "people in green", who had wounded dreaded flame dragon with "magic wand Rod of Steel" (Panzerschrek). She's all awed about "flying swords" (F-4 Phantoms) and "flying arc" (Chinook).

Gate - Thus the JSDF Fought There; I'm LOVIN' it! And artwork is near the top!

They are nobles
They are knights
They are women
They read and TRANSLATE manga!



From order of knights to manga club! Is that progression or what?

I have watched through The Devil Is a Part-Timer! and I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job. Now I tell you something about those.

In I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job. starts with introduction of main character, hero-in-training doing... training. Then he and other heroes-in-training are told that demon lord has been deposed and heroes and heroes-in-training alike are demobilized & disbanded. To earn his everyday bread, our hero, Raul, starts working in magical item store. Well... merchandise has strong resemblance to electronic devices we know, but those are powered by magic instead electricity. Same difference. He dislikes it and is hoping to prove his worth as hero. Until new employee starts in the place: demon lord's daughter. Cute girl by the way. She has some troubles, speaks evil things, but is eager to learn to speak and behave as she should. And she is enjoying it. From her Raul learns values of life, the universe, and everything. But other heroes want her to become next demon lord so heroes would get mobilized again and get to do what they were trained to do...

The Devil Is a Part-Timer! starts with info dump and fast paced action where main character, Satan the devil, gets his army slaughtered by humans. He manages to escape with his most trusted general through temporary portal ( = stargate) to another world. Guess where did they go? To Tokyo. He and his general find themselves have transformed to humans, nobody is afraid of them, casting magic takes great effort, and they have very limited reserve of magic. Satan learns quickly, manages to get money, bank account, ID cards, apartment, and part-time job in fast food restaurant. Little later he meets his archnemesis, hero, who had followed him through the portal. She is in much the same situation. After some minor conflict they settle in with uneasy truce. Hilarity ensues when everybody around them seems to think they're (former) couple. Little later show takes turn towards harem, and occasionally other people from their homeworld come stir up their peace.

I enjoyed watching both of those. Well worth the time spent

Manga Gate - Thus the JSDF Fought There chapters 33, 34, and 35 deliver exactly what readers had wanted. Latest chapter seems to focus on assessing events of the night (3 chapters long night!). Could someone translate the chapter please?

Chapter #37 of Gate - Thus the JSDF Fought There is up and translated. But what is FULL METAL CHOCO? Is it chocolate bar? Real official brand or fictional?

Gate - Thus the JSDF Fought There practically begs for adventure RPG. I consider GURPS for that. I don't have any experience with that game, though I have played RPG before and game mastered one. So what GURPS material do you recommend?

Do you have any other RPG recommendations? What about war games? Do you any that would be as fitting as GURPS for RPG?
