The popular series from back in the day Full Metal Panic! is getting a third season, believe it or not. The last season, Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid was released 10 years ago in 2005, so it seems a little unbelievable, to be honest. The original light novel series has concluded as of 2010, so hopefully this season will animate all the way to the end.
The first season was animated by Gonzo in 2002. The spin-off Fumoffu and The Second Raid were animated by Kyoto Animation in 2003 and 2005. No studio has been announced yet for this third season, though they did imply that it was a studio based in Tokyo.
Personally, I find this news quite timely, since I just started watching the series this week. I’m a fan so far, and I haven’t even gotten to the Kyoto Animation part yet!
Did anyone here watch the series back in the day? Are you super excited now?
