It could potentially, but the fact that they've already said it's going to be an audio drama suggests that it won't be anything else.

Well we finally have our title, Full Metal Panic: Invisible Victory.

Not exactly sure what relevance the title has to the story, but there you have it. Also whether by design or coincidence the abbreviation comes out as FMP IV which is correct if you consider Fumoffu season 2.

Huh, I guess FMP IV does make sense in a way.

A part of me still can't believe we're getting a continuation of FMP anime, it's been so long. Nice to finally see it and also reminds me of how old I am.

My only thought about this other then yes finally. Would be that if they are going to try and finish the series off in say a 26 episode series then honestly the events of burning one man army will take a good chunk of the eps. That would mean that they have to skip volume 6. Also they could prune I believe its Come make my day that kind of lags with what mithril is doing after the events of continuing on my own.

Totally can't wait. It's been a good 10 years or so too.

For those who are unaware, a few months ago FMP IV was removed from the Fall 2017 listings. Luckily it turns out it's just getting delayed since it is now slated for spring of 2018.

If this was some other show I' probably be a bit pissed but since I've already already waited more than ten years, what's another nine months gonna matter?

Well, there's really no such thing as "Fumoffu" characters since it was all the same story. People may assume that Fumoffu was goofy non-canon stuff, but it happened in the novels too; yes, Shoji Gatoh wrote things like Bonta-kun, the art class "survival course", and the infamous rugby episode. Characters like Class President Hayashida and Mikihara are part of the main story, they're just more prominent in the silly episodes because they're ordinary high school students. Fumoffu was just the result of the anime staff deciding to shunt the sillier stuff into its own season in order to preserve the tone of the more serious plot.

But don't expect a whole lot more silliness anymore...the plot will really kick off in earnest with IV, and we won't even have Dancing Very Merry Christmas to lighten the mood since they already turned it into an audio drama.

I wonder how long this new series will be and how much they will cover from the novels and what will get the cut...

The FMP Sigma Manga did a fantastic job of adapting things from the novels.

:cry: And I wanted them to animate just why Mardukas was nicknamed "The Duke" back in his Royal Navy days.

The original anime is getting turned into a "director's cut" movie trilogy in anticipation of IV.

Wow thats amazing... yeah wow can we just get invisible victory. I just meh this is just meh, I'm sorry this is just meh. I guess you could break up the first season by what book there based on but that would cut the afghan arc so meh.

The movie is probably needed to help get some people up to date, it's been more than ten years after all. IV may be intended for the hardcorefans, but a quick catch-up avenue for anybody new that's interested or older fans who want a quick catch upjust is always helpful, even needed. Those of us who are fairly fresh on the subject can skip it.
