failure of the GATE adaption

It's not like the source material's particularly inspiring. Pitting a small 20th/21st century military group against a larger medieval/fantasy force is a common enough premise in western military sci-fi/fantasy. Can't think of too many examples in Japanese media though.

the shit ending of Jormungand
No way they were going to be able to follow up on Koko's big plan in any satisfying way, especially after they had her brother point out how retarded it was. Did the manga do anything significantly differently?

My biggest problem with Koko's Jormungand could be easily destroyed even if the exact position of its orbit were not known. If you have watched Planetes then you have heard of the Kessler syndrome. For those of you who have not, read up.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kessler_syndrome
In such a case where flight computers were being jammed or hacked across the world and space launch were rendered impossible by Koko's idiotic plan (And since I am assuming this is a worst case scenario, all guided missiles are somehow rendered inoperable) an agreement would likely be reached by superpowers like China and the United States that initiating the Kessler syndrome and flooding Earth's orbit with a field of debris would be better than allowing Koko to attempt to act as a despot. In such a case one of the countries would have their leader hand deliver instructions detailing the following plan to the nearest/most conveniently located missile silo. (In case electronic communication were also jammed.) A warhead, probably 5-20 megatons, would be launched using an ICBM with a flight pattern preprogrammed into an unhackable, unjammable inertial guidance system. The most likely targets would be in areas known to be cluttered with large satellites in LEO, possibly even the ISS.The agreed upon detonation point would probably be somewhere over the center of either the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean to limit damage to ground electronics. After the destruction of most of the satellites in Earth's orbit, including Jormungand, a multi pronged manhunt for Koko would begin. Most likely ending with her and Valmet being violently raped to death by a joint group of DEVGRU and Spetsnaz operators who may have lost family members in the clusterfuck Jormungand's initial activation caused. In the end, everything would be pic related.

The ending of Jormungand was fine, spoonfed babies just can't stand ambiguous endings. They're sure they know how it ends, and would complain that it was predictable if they saw it, but the materiel one upped them by ending and they throw mashed peas everywhere rather than accept that.

The manga and anime have a pretty solid structure of intro, a volume for each member of Koko's team (except Lehm, Koko, and Jonah, who get covered during the beginning and ending chapters and Wileys story), climax, denouement, end.

That assumes that they know anything about the situation; that there's a satellite, that it's in LEO (If it's not, that plan is fucked), etc. She also actively subverted Americans to advocate for her position. And she still has the facility in Africa.

New to /ak/ threads, only anime from it I've seen that I know counts is Black Lagoon.

Any "must read/watch" list? Been wanting to see some more grounded shit after catching up to the utter insanity that is JoJo.

The OVA is set in modern times, so check that out too. Just one 30 minute or so show, unfortunately.
