I thought I would make a thread about this prior to the DVD release of The Second Raid.
I loved Full Metal Panic because it just feels like a another teen story at heart, but taken to an entirely new extreme. We have all seen the teen movie where someone transfers, but how about we make the new kid a mercenary. You can easily find some connection between at least one of the characters. Kurz is a perv. Kaname is self-confident and a busybody. Tessa is always concerned about maintaining her dignity. Souske is just a fish out of water that doesn't know how to deal with anything. I know there are some people who like Tessa, but if you look at the FMP fansites and forums, the true FMP fans are all about Souske and Kaname and are annoyed by Tessa most of the time. The story should continue for a 4th season, but there is no official news of making of it. Considering the huge fanbase and how things ended in the last season, it's not a matter of "if" they are making a new series but "when?"

fumoffu is closer to a spin off anyway. Its technically a 2nd season, but you would only be thrown off by probably a single inside joke in the first episode of TSR

I still haven't seen TSR though I keep meaning to. I enjoyed the first series and fumofu (sp?) quite a bit though. I'm assuming TSR picks up where the first series left off? They left a whole ton of plot holes unexplained. I loved the balance from quality mech action to fun high school romantic comedy. At times it was hard to beleive it was the same series. Sosuke I enjoyed in particular with his inability to relax... ever. Kurz was cool too. Nice to see us Gaijin getting positive attention now and then.

Tessa annoyed the hell out of me. Not her personality, I thought she very fun character, but the fact she is a 16 year old who is the equivelent of colonol (O6). I know it's anime, but christ, at least make her some reasonable sort of rank. A 16 year old Lt would be a good enough stretch for me. Anytime anyone of her old officers salutes her its like nails on a chalkboard for me.

I wish to god every military-esque anime would have an actual military experienced advisor on board.

TSR has a completely new feel to it. Its much more mature than the others and as a true FMP fan I will openly come out and say I cried at the end of episode 7

Isn't it on here? Funimation licensed The second Raid; ADV didn't get it this time.

I have it on DVD. Technically speaking, its 12 because you have to episodes that count as 1 most of the time. I highly reccomend buying the first DVD because they have 2 episodes that never aired in Japan. They never aired because of some problem. I forgot what. It was the forst episode.

if they do make a new season i do hope its more mature and less comiclike in its comedy where chidori is always beating the crap outta sousuke. I liked the conclusion so far because there was romantic closure, but they could always develop the character's further, and maybe some more good action scenes, although i dont really watch the series for that.

I agree. I think Souske can finally eventually adapt to living like a normal person and I dunno perhaps Souske and Kaname can finally kiss?
