Ride of the Valkyries Japan, Beyond the Gate

The Princess's Decision is the seventh episode of the Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri anime series. It aired on August 14, 2015.


Piña scolds her knights Bozes and Panache for not only attacking Itami but treating him inhumanely, both of which violated the treaty she signed with him. She fears the JSDF will use this as an excuse to attack them. As the Formal family staff treat Itami wounds, Rory, Lelei, Tuka and some of the 3rd Unit sneak back to Italica to rescue Itami but not before learning, much to Shino shock, Itami is a Special Forces Ranger. The 3rd Unit are welcomed by the Formal maids and join Itami for a small party where some of the soldiers get to know the non-human maids. Meanwhile, Piña orders Bozes to sleep with Itami as an apology but Bozes becomes angry and slaps him after seeing him having a party and feeling herself publicly humiliated. Still fearing retaliation, Piña and Bozes join the 3rd Unit's trip back to Alnus Hill to apologize to Itami's superiors personally for Bozes actions, where they witness the JSDF having a live fire Field training exercise along with tanks and helicopters, and is shocked to learn from Lelei that their soldiers do not use magic but weapons called guns. While Piña and Bozes meet with Itami's commanding officer Lieutenant General Hazama with Lelei as an interpreter, Itami invites Tuka to come with him to Japan to meet the Japanese Diet as a representative of the Special Region. The next day, Itami, Shino and Akira accompany Rory, Lelei, Tuka to Japan using the Gate along with Piña and Bozes to show them around.
