One day, Japan was transferred to another world.

Because of its poor food production and previous reliance on imports from other countries, Japan faced a food shortage crisis. To slow the effects of starvation from its populace, the Japanese government declared a state of emergency. The Japan Air Self-Defense Force explored the surrounding area and found a land mass about 1000 kilometers to the southwestthe continent of Rodenius.

Japan was able to resolve its food shortage after entering into diplomatic relations with the Principality of Kua Toine and the Kingdom of Quira. However, at that time, another country on the continent, the hegemonic Kingdom of Rowlia, declared war on Kua Toine and Quira.

In light of this new crisis, how will Japan respond? A survival story on a national scale!

This one was... bad. Technology discrepancy was extreme, even excluding Japan. We have technology ranging from the classic fantasy medieval to WWII in the same world, despite everyone being within the range to communicate and trade thanks to the mana communication tech.

Japan economy. Real world Japan depends on imports like every country in the world. Losing of most of the internet, fuel import, food import, raw and processed materials, machinery parts, and technology. Large part of Japan needs international trade for their work one way or another and the novel


act like it was just some trouble not catastrophic.

Major empire diplomacy was incredibly idiotic with how ignorant they were and the whole massacre thing. Why would they try to strongarm Japan? To annex them? Why would the empire want to annex Japan if they dont know how advanced/rich Japan was? Pretty much every single diplomat in the novel is unbearably s*upid.

Id class this as gun fantasy p*rn with a massive application of wish fulfilment, the kind that believes that I got big gun, my big gun never misses from a writer who probably has never fired any gun other than his inbuilt one before in his life.

If you are expecting rationality and realism in this series, forget it, it is seriously just gun p*rn (and tank p*rn and fighter p*rn and warship p*rn) written to kill targets that cant even fight back. Its like the Stormtrooper vs Star Trek redshirts


joke. The stormtrooper misses every shot. The Red Shirt dies anyway. This story is written with such a Japan bias its like Han Solo vs the Red Shirts. Im still waiting for the chapter that the enemy dies because a Japanese soldier sneezed and his sneeze caused a Force 10 hurricane.

I like Gate. I love stories with technology gap, modern science/technology vs pre-modern and magic. Yup this is my kind of story..... but one thing that really irks me is how s*upid it is sometimes.

A peaceful Japan got transported to a more hostile world... Wait, genius idea! Lets allow Japanese civilians to go on leisure tourism in a country that is currently in an active state of war with an empire well known for their cruelty who were already hostile to Japan. Omfg big surprise! The Japanese tourists got massacred,


publicly executed, slaughtered like the sheeps they are! Who wouldve guessed.

Everyone makes comparisons to GATE, which is understandable considering GATEs popularity. However, its more correct to compare this to SM Sterlings Islands in the Sea Of Time series, except without the indestructible YASSS-Queen fetish and the authors OTHER fetish of graphically describing bestiality forced on the straw feminist character (whos there to contrast the not-straw STRONK FEMALE MAIN CHARACTER WHO DONT NEED NO MAN BECAUSE SHES A LESBIAN. Seriously, look at a picture of Sterling, it just screams Im one of those Allies that winds up getting Harvey Weinsteind). Like


Sterling, however, its a civilians musings and thought exercises on what would happen if a modern society was transplanted into another era, and how its dealings with the natives would affect that world and how that would in return affect the modern society.

Instead of Nantucket, a small little vacation island off the coast of Massachusetts, we have the entire Island Nation of Japan being transported, not to the past but to a fantasy world which has seen entire nations transplanted there in the past, from all different sorts of universes and parallel realities over the course of millenia, and how this has turned the world into a free-for-all with fantasy weapons versus modern armaments of various eras

In later chapters, we find that a Zero fighter plane from either Japans past or possibly a parallel universe version of Japan had been transported onto the world eons ago. In addition, we are introduced to Japans version of Atlantis, the Continent of Mu, whose disappearance from the pages of Earth history are explained by it having been transported to this world 12 thousand years ago. Theres also yet another empire that seems to be a parallel earth version of WWII-era Imperial Japan, with the same aggressive expansionist tendencies, so theres Modern GLORIOUS NIPPON vs WWII GLORIOUS NIPPON to look forward to in addition to modern ordinance vs Dragons in the future, I suppose.

But yeah, like Sterling, Nihonkoku Shoukans author seems to have a particular focus and ignores some interesting points, including the presence of U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine bases as well as 50, 000 U.S Military personnel stationed all over Japan (not to mention all that U.S. Military hardware), and whatever portion of the 32 million annual foreign tourists that happened to be visiting Japan when it was transported, as well has Japanese nationals of foreign descent. Perhaps whoever facilitated the transport was kind enough to send the U.S. Military assets back, as well as the foreign nationals.

In addition, Japan as a whole tends to make various political blunders and rash decisions in order to move the plot forward and has no basis in realism. Lots of plot holes, but it further emphasizes the authors particular focus and lack of knowledge in certain areas, or rather, his decision not to focus on those areas for the sake of dramatic license. In that sense, the comparison to GATE falls a bit short, the author of GATE was served in the Japanese military and was familiar enough to give a good portrayal of how modern military tactics and weapons would fare against fantasy-world magic and warfare. Japan in the Sea of Isekai attempts to expand this into other areas outside of military engagements into foreign relations with the nations of the new world, but we see in the WN version where it sometimes falls short.

Maybe it ruins the immersion for some, but it just reinforces the idea that its just a thought-exercise, and should be enjoyed as that, nothing more.

This novel satisfied my modern-vs-medieval/fantasy fetish. It always gives me excitement and thrills. I really like the way Japan

the countries in the New World. Moreover, I think Im not the only one who cackled like a madman every time Japan annihilates a prideful country.

While I like this kind of plot, the approach of other countries with low technology is left to be desired. They always ridicule another country for the difference in technologies only to end up with a slap in their face. It felt like reading typical Chinese arrogant young master troupe getting face shaped.

The other countries intelligence was reduced for then glorify Japanese technology might. But Japanese intelligence remained questioned. Their conduct in this story made me a bit frustrated.

Why do they always let themselves suffer first before taking action? Why not try to take caution or prevent an enemy attack? I knew Japan only execute self defend acts, but, cmon, its already in another world. After so many accidents they need to make a new policy.

This wn is unique in which theres actually no set Protagonist... No if I stretch it, the protagonist is Japan itself. This story chronicles the Adventure of Japan in isekai, so you know where its going...

Anyway, this novel is great for those who loves Fantasy vs Science story and those who already read similar novel such as GATE and Rune Troopers. Though if theres one thing I want to complain is that the author seems to like to include intermission chapter whenever stuff start to get interesting. I kinda hate this trick, and thats why it only got 4 star instead of perfect 5.

I like isekai series it has a what will happen if it will become true. From diplomatic to militaristic way of governing. Well, good thing its not China but Japan got summon. Hehehe

Ive been the type of people who enjoy OP Slaughter, In this case, Guns Vs Medieval is like my haven. The Translating is pretty clear and Straight. I Cant Review it profesionally, but I can Say I Love it.

Id like to say that the negative reviews are mostly dumb in my opinion the ones that say japan bias are the ones that should be deleted because that comment is just idiotic, its a Japanese novel by a Japanese Author, had it been an American it would have American Bias etc, after all, if you read the novel you would see many critics of Japanese bureaucracy and refusal to act, not only that further in the novel the Japanese Military (I refer to Air/Navy/Ground) does fail and the enemy


even with inferior tech does get some wins.

Now on with the real review, the novel is pretty well done in my opinion, it explains the new world well and it tries to show different ways the countries work and how different eras would react as well as different types of civilizations tech/magic. I also think its good that its not just a kingdom expansion novel, a modern japan would not want to expand or deal with the hassle of it, that said I do think (or at least hope) that if this situation were to happen that the country wouldnt be so easygoing as to let other nations strongman them so easily, but the truth is it wouldnt be the first time that strong nations refuse to believe they are inferior we have the Opium War as an example where China believed it would never lose vs Britain or Japan vs Russia, so I could see some of the reasons for why diplomats and the people of these strong nations refuse to consider themselves beneath Japan.

That said I think the novel is more than well balanced and for the critics of how the author is just a gun enthusiast that knows nothing about them I advise those people to seriously read further into the novel because the author shows a high knowledge of Japanese military equipment and (some) modern tactics which on some research were real.

That said the one thing the author doesnt show is the possible Nationalistic take that the public could that with the attacks received that said the story is just being written and it has been shown some Japanese people having negative thoughts towards the enemy so lets see where it goes.

This novel had an interesting premise, what would a modern country do in an alternative world. But it fails to deliver, first the inconsistency of events.

1. WHY THE HELL IS EVERYONE SO CALM?. In a real world scenario, panic would rain havoc in the streets, crime will go up and everyone would go crazy. Imagine suddenly getting kidnap you would not stay calm in that situation.

2. Japan heavily relies on export, in food, in fuel and many other thing. The moment they get cut off from earths resources, everything will


freeze. The markets gonna go up, people will starve and mayhem will insure.

though they explained it, it would still be insufficient. Even if you have food storages, I doubt it can feed all of Japan and will they have enough resources to make sure everyone receives its fair share. Sound like a logistical nightmare.

3. WHY THE HELL, ARE YOU FREELY ALLOWING INFORMATION TO FLOW OUTSIDE?. Like seriously, you are in a new planet with absolutely technological superiority. Why the hell are giving it away like candies?, it s*upid no retarted to even do it you are in a world were you have no allies and no information regarding in this world. So why give youre only advantages to them, its like telling youre killer that his gun is on safety rather than choking the living day light out of him.

This novel is nothing more but a popcorn read, where medical warrior vs modern soldiers fight. Its unlike Gate where it captures real world politics and the course of having something like it. Here its basically mowing down grass, no one is ambitious enough to see the benefits of being transported in a non-polluted and resource rich world with almost no military disadvantages.

If youre looking at Swords vs guns novel then its a good read, especially without diving on the murky waters that is politics. But if youre like me, who like a bit of realism to the novels then this is a hard pass.

Its hard to say whether this novel is good or not. To say it plainly, its like reading One Punch Man in novel form. You knew right away that Japan can win everything easily. But the novel stall its punchline so much you got annoyed by it

Dont get me wrong its a good novel to read but I also want to point out a notable flaws in it.

This novel is not outstanding as a novel by any means. However, its just really satisfying and I personally really enjoy reading about Japan beating up all the evil countries through shear technological superiority.

A unique part of the novel is that its told more from the perspective of the countries involved rather than individual characters, meaning theres none of that drama, lovey-dovey, misunderstanding, or harem BS. Things are easy to understand and most of all, satisfying. People often draw similarities between Japan Summons and GATE, but this novel has depicts


a much broader picture of the world than just a single guy going around making a harem and exploring the world like a classic isekai.

As long as you dont take the world-building critically and purposefully pick out plot holes and errors, I think it can be a fun and relaxing read for anybody.

I suppose that by this time, its no longer a hiatus but a complete drop which is a shame because this was a very exiting WN from my point of view. Although I finished reading the chapter a long time ago, I come here from time to time with the hope to see it revived once again, but alas, it doesnt look like its going to happen. I managed to find the manga in 3 different languages and different stages, but for some reason it seems as if the manga also will end up being dropped.

This novel is really interesting! Now, Ive read the WN on Syosetu and came to chapter 110. That last chapter was published in 4th month which is now a month or from the date I am writing this review. It is regrettable because the publishing is slow but oh well... The point is, the novel is so interesting that it fills me with excitement. I am not an expert but for me at least, I like how are they explaining strategies and equipment trough the story (I dont know if


the story has mistakes about all that stuff but hey...). Overall, from my amateur standpoint I really like the novel and thus I give it 5 stars! :)

I hope MoD include the short story The Forgotten World in the translated chapters because there is a hint to the next enemy of Japan, the Annun Lille Empire. Pride of Powers 1 will be the 1st encounter of Japan and Annun Lille Empire and the reaction of the ALE diplomat about the knowledge of Japan about their true national power will most likely lead Japan and ALE into war, added by the events in The Forgotten World

The Japan-ALE War will also become a test of strength and reliability of the new Japanese weapons (F3, aircraft carriers, nuclear subs, etc.) which will have a very important role in the defeat of the Ravernal Empire. If the ALE are better users of the RavEs technology than the HME (can use the Flying Battleships in its almost full capabilities) and Japan managed to defeat ALE, theres no doubt that Japan can defeat the Ravernal Empire.

I like this. If youre thinking this is same as GATE, its not even close. You should read Rune Troopers and Modern Weapon Cheat in Fantasy World for the reference. This is much more detailed. Not with your usual loser pu*sy MC. When the JSDF fought the empire, this is the same as Parabellum in Modern Weapon vs Alsace Magic Empire, but with finer detail such as multiple perspective and political views. The translation is also great. Hope the translator continued this. Looking forward for the next chapter.

but everyone is already sick of glorifying Japanese values of food and culture, f*ck off, enough to pour propaganda, they seem to have the standard as in the USSR 40 times on the book to mention Lenin, only instead of Lenin how good is it in Japan s*upid maggots
