Ok, i'm posting a new thread on this anime because I really want to see other's opinions, but my old thread was in the wrong section. >.< Sorry for inconvinience, mods and admins.

Anyways, I just finished watch normal and fumoffu, and i'd have to say i love it as much as alchemist. I've heard rumors of a third season coming out. Is this true?

Post any other comments about panic! ^^

I watched Fumoffu first, it's a funny series, and I just finished watching the first season the other day, I loved them both, it's the only mech show I'm into atm really

yeah, "full metal panic! second raid" is going to come out....eventually happy.gif dunno much else except it's based on a fmp! book.....er, google it? biggrin.gif i'm hoping that it'll further sousuke and kaname's relationship! (and maybe some melissa/kurz wink.gif) i hope it'll be good, though, i thought fmp! ended okay, especially with fumoffu following up. the last scene in fmp! between kaname and sousuke at the fishing spot was so sweet. "kimi to iru to, ore wa nandemo dekisou na kibun ni naru..." aww. wink.gif

Melissa and Kurz? Doesn't seem too likely. Maybe it's just me.

Is it even possible for a person to exist similar to Sousuke? I mean, he doesn't even get what Chidori means at the end of Fumoffu.

He obviously doesn't get why Chidori is reluctant to take off he clothes...doh...

Anyway, one of the main reasons I like Full Metal Panic is that its a pretty refreshing change having a lead character in an anime not be a total pervert. Sousuke is a true gentleman.

I can't wait to see the new season. There was this one part in Fumoffu, before Tessa leaves and all the students at school give her a loving farewell, she goes back and says, "I will protect them all!" To me it felt like foreshadowing of something...something ominous that will test that certain resolve for Tessa.

Sousuke isn't exactly a true gentlemen, he's just a little misinformed. ^^

He's still more of a gentleman than most male anime protagonists, and definitely not a perv. That gives him points in my book smile.gif .

You really should watch the first one first. Altogether, though it doesn't make a huge difference, it is still nice to have some background information.
Cloud28

Yes. God forbid you have to pay for something just like the Japanese people do.

FMP Fumoffu is relatively funny...especially when Sousuke gets his butt kicked by Chidori..LOLx I was laughing so hard when Sousuke armor suit which was the State of the ART couldn't sell just one...LOLx!! but its soo cute when the gang and sousuke marched down the street saying " Fumo FUmo" and so on... their soo cute!!
Lady Battousai
I have to agree with FidelChevalier there!

But the jokes are too random. Don't worry, I'm not accusing or anything just voicing out my thoughts.

Still looking for it? - wich would surprise me - You could pm me if you are.

I started watching FMP! a week ago and it's surely not bad. At all. I didn't know there was a second season blink.gif

A promo was recently released for the new and third Full Metal Panic series, Second Raid.

Anyone got some more information on this one? Such as when it starts airing and how many episodes it will be, the time gap, stuff like that?

Fumoffu was really funny and hilarious, this one looks like it will be more serious.

I hope Kaname and Sousuke finally shack up. And I have a feeling that Tessa's proclaimation of protecting her newly made friends from season 2 will be put to the test.
full_metal_05
this is gonna be good, a third season of full metal!
mongooseboi
i love the first 2 seasons, but i heard the 3rd season will be a lot more serious. im not really a fan of mecha, so i guess i wont like 3rd season as much as the humor episodes from fumoffu.
TheVileOne
Is it possible Gauron will show up again? Maybe as like some sort of bodiless super cyborg or mecha? That'd be tits smile.gif .

FMP was pretty cool, serious but with comic relief. its kinda like bleach, but i think bleach does it a lot better with the funny art, but fumoffu. wow. fumoffu is hands down the funniest thing i have seen. i saw all the eps and i couldn't stop laughing. sousuke is one cool guy.

I've seen the first 3 eps of fomufu and I like it

I must disagree on the funniest thing topic. ^_~ Have you seen Excel saga's first ep? I couldn't, literally, stop laughing about it. It was just too much... "Keep on stopping!" Lol... Anyway...

FMP! rules absolutely. The way Sousuke has so much knowledge concerning battle and hasn't got a clue about girls' behaviour is just too much at times. ^_~ The mecha-ish thing wasn't too extreme though. Fumoffu was a total joke cracker, I absolutely liked the whole of it and like to watch those series again every time I need some comic relief. I think I'd seek up some info myself... I can't wait the third season either! smile.gif

FMP - Fumoffu is one of the funniest anime's I've ever seen; so much random things that are just hilarious!
