an unfortunate melding
The premise of Divine Gate was to combine several different versions of "god tales" to produce an interlocking story of humans rising above the level of being merely human to become something else.

Unfortunately the attempt turns into a mess, contradictions abound, and sometimes you cannot tell if what seem to be errors in translation to create the subtitles are actually errors or if they are some some form of mocking the very story playing out on the screen. Somehow the story shows facets of being overly complicated at the same time it plays at being far, far too simplistic.

It is worth a watch because Divine Gate at least tries to go beyond the normal story level of most "gods versus man" anime. In that respect it shows writers what not to do, how not to gloss over holes in the plot, and why you need to know the how and why of the character's actions before you write their story, before you show their actions, before you try to reveal their inner thoughts.
