Binged this anime last Summer. I especially loved Fumoffu cause it was hilarious. Also, Sousuke Sagara is hot. I do wish they would let Sousuke and Kaname kiss and become a couple already. I hate Tessa with a passion.

Read the manga, they do start a relationship after what seems like forever (as the anime never finished the story) however, it's 19 very long volumes, but still totally worth it in the end, as the ending (besides the kiss) is fantastic.

Also, their kiss is probably one of the best in anme/manga I've seen/read, Sailor Moon included.

And Fumoffu is the best of the three series for the sheer comedic value of dressing up in a mascot costume.

I've never seen any of it, but heard good things of Fumoffu especially. Also, for all the FMP lovers, there's gonna be a new season in Fall.

So excited for Invisible Victory!! When does it come out? Also, will Crunchyroll or Hulu stream it? Also, what's everyone's favorite episode? I love the Hamburger Hill of Art in Fumoffu where Sousuke is asked to be the model and then he gets the wrong idea in his head and he booby traps the forest and Kaname and their whole class chase after him. XD I also love the other episode in Fumoffu where Sousuke has to do the survery for flirting in order to save the photography club and he gets the wrong idea in his head about it. XD I really can't stand the dub of this show and I prefer the sub of it. Also, Kazama's Japanese voice sounds like a girl. XD I also really love when Kaname attacks Sousuke when he screws up, it's so hilarious. XD I swear when I'm pissed off I have Kaname's temper. XD Also, my dream guy is someone just like Sousuke. <3 *sigh* If only Sousuke was real... *sigh*

Oh nooooooooooooooooooo.

Fujimi Shobo's official website listing for its various light novel series no longer lists a fall release for the upcoming Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory television anime. The website had listed a fall 2017 release window at least as recently as April 14. The website removed the listing between then and April 30.

The official website for the anime itself also removed its "this fall" listing for the series sometime between February and April.

I'm sure it's just been delayed. If any fandom can understand that, NGE's can. I mean, when is Final coming out again? But in the meantime, if you haven't ever seen the manga's end, you might enjoy this... and I can't wait to see this scene in all its anime goodness.

Well, at least we know it hasn't been cancelled.

“In addition to the original staff who have worked on the series since the first one, we have added new members and have sank our teeth into the production. However, Full Metal Panic! is the title that demands high level of capability and vitality not only from the new members, but also from the original ones. We have almost given up the project many times. At all such times, we worked our fingers to the bone in order to deliver the best work we can to the fans. Then literally, we reached our limit. We needed more time. We realize that we need to ask for more time to continue the production. As a result of various discussions, we have decided to postpone the airing to the Spring of 2018.”

Better than rushing it to air where you get some of the early animation DBS had when it started.

I don't mean to sound like a negative Nancy, but The Second Raid was one of the more forgettable annimay series I've watched, so I can't really get too excited for this one. Fumoffu was a top class series, and is still definitely one of the better comedies out there, so if they were making some kind of sequel to that I'd probably be dancing in the streets.

As a mecha series I think FMP! is sort of weak(not the best mecha designs) especially when you compare it to a work like Eureka Seven or Rahxephon , but as a romance it's a lot of fun. And I'd still take it any day of the week over to that other Full Metal anime....
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

^ Well, considering how the manga was (see my above post), it was a romance with mecha elements in the story, which is basically the opposite of NGE or (any) Gundam where the romance is the background to the mecha fighting awesomeness.

Still, the whole Lambda Driver system is pretty awesome, so the series does have some strong concepts, even if the designs (in the anime) are weak. Although, if they follow the manga for the rest of the anime, the designs do get soem minor improvements.

All I want is for Invisible Victory is for Sousuke and Kaname to finally get together and to share a kiss.

@DarkBluePhoenix

I just have to say, I assumed your avatar was Sousuke. Now that I see in your signature that it's not, I still don't believe how much it looks like him. Uncanny :).

That's because sosuke is meant to be an expy of the character in his Avatar. I'm not joking the author pretty much confirmed it.

Ah. Well, that explains that, thanks!

By the way, I just finished Second Raid. Now, in the interest of not spoiling anything for those who (like myself, until very recently) haven't seen it, I won't go into specifics, but I just have to say; Fumoffu? and TSR have some of the best cinematography I've ever seen in an anime. (Of course, NGE's the best, but this is surprisingly good too.) Far as KyoAni goes, I've only seen these and Haruhi, but they seem to be great at that visual storytelling. I didn't even like Haruhi that much, but I loved how well-made it was. For those who have seen it,

SPOILER: Show
The hair-cutting scene in Episode 6 of Second Raid, was just so beautifully done, in my opinion. Even that scene alone would be enough to impress almost anyone, I think, with KyoAni's superb cinematography. I hear they're one of the few studios that hires animators full-time, instead of freelancers. So, that would explain the consistency across their word, I guess...

^ Yeah, basically, Sousuke is a slightly less mal-adjusted mech pilot than Heero, they have a similar backstory - Sousuke was killing people at 8, Heero was trained from age 4 to be an assassin. Sousuke points guns at everyone he meets, Heero tells them he's going to them (but doesn't). They may as well be long lost twins. I guess thier only difference is that Sousuke is somewhat naive about normal life, whereas Heero just ignores the normal life he know he can't have.

That, and they both pilot awesome... er... giant fucking robots with special computer systems that make them better fighters The Lambda Driver (ARX–7 and ARX–8), and the ZERO System (Wing ZERO and Epyon).
