  • Broken Base: The author's portrayal of America. He makes his portrayal clear in his rebooted story in which he strongly opposes American interventionism and stating that an American centric Gate story would be no different from Japan's overt imperialism in canon.
    "Because of the research and discovery I did writing Gate, I learned the wider breadth of American and Western imperialism. America could not stand being the "better" of the two if both the JSDF and the Americans went into a Gate-like scenario."
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One of the political situation in fic!Earth is that Scotland secedes from UK in protest to London's political actions. Scotland made announcements of secession after the 2016 BREXIT decision.
  • Too Bleak, Stopped Caring: Some readers are repelled by the story due to its content as it gets more bleaker with each chapter, with the Japanese characters being downright bloodthristy while the Americans are portrayed as mean-spirited.
