In 2010, AlphaPolis made an arrangement with him to publish his work in print. The first two web-novel volumes were slightly altered to make them less nationalistic whereas the third, and final, web-novel volume was rewritten and expanded into three volumes. These five volumes were published from April 12, 2010 to December 22, 2011 with cover illustrations by Daisuke Izuka. Since then, the series has continued with five volumes of side stories as of July 2015. In December 2012, AlphaPolis began a reprint of the series as a light novel, where each novel volume was split into two small-sized light novel volumes in bunkobon format, as well as new cover and inside illustrations by Kurojishi. A sequel novel series, Gate: Weigh Anchor, centers on a new set of characters from the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. === Manga === There are five manga series based on Gate, all published by AlphaPolis. The first manga, drawn by Satoru Sao, began publishing in July 2011 and as of June 2018, has 13 volumes.
