Dunno what o soto gake is. Maybe find your answer in the diving crystals.

The throw shown still qualifies as ô-soto-gari although technically not performed very well. As pointed out, there does not exist any throw called "ô-soto-gake" in Kôdôkan jûdô.
Ô-soto-gari in theory can be countered by almost every other jûdô throw. Certainly it isn't so that only certain specific throws would be possible against ô-soto-gari, but the unique character of the opponent, timing, and whether the throw is carried out as sen-no-sen, go-no-sen, or sen-sen-no-sen will affect the choice of the most optimal technique in the spirit of sei-ryoku-zen'yô.
Among the throws that are very commonly chosen to counter ô-soto-gari, I list:
- sukui-nage (te-guruma variant)
Clearly, the optimal choice of throw is strongly determined by what direction the opponent can be brought out of balance, since some of the throws listed are towards the backside, while others are towards the front side.

The correct name of the counter-techniques is:
chūgaeri or bakuten.
'Chū' in this context means 'air'. The word in full thus means "turning in midair".
In the second term 'bakuten' the 'baku' comes from the English 'back' and 'ten' means roll. Thus the term in full means "backward sommersault".
The name of the full movement (which is actually a double counter) is:
Ō-soto-gari + chūgaeri + ude-hishigi-waki-gatame
