Every time there's an announcement like this, it always leads to heartbreak. Would really love for this to be about a new anime season, so I'll continue to hold onto that small amount of hope. I wouldn't mind another installment of Fumoffu either.

Interestingly enough I found a tweet made by Gatoh back in January 2012. He was talking about how he had several projects set for 2012, including a few set for 2013 and later. One of those projects has a "long-awaited" feeling to it but he couldn't talk about it at the time and said it was "way down the road." It's been over 3 years since that tweet and we're 2 years past 2013. The only things FMP related that have happened are a re-release of blu rays, tabletop rpg, and ABP anime but I don't think any of those were "long awaited." He also said in 2011 on a live stream that there are no current plans for season 4 and he will personally announce when the FMP anime project will be over which he hasn't as of yet. Also, he's been really quiet on twitter as of late. He hasn't done anything since March. Once again all speculation but maybe this event might tie into the "long awaited" news.

More updates today.


Presenters: Shoji Gatou/Editor Morii and others

The monumental light novel “Full Metal Panic!” has over 11 million copies in print. What will be announced at this special interview?! There’s no problem if FMP fans definitely watch this stage event! Please stay tuned!”

At least we know the Author will be attending the event as well as his editor and other guests that haven't been revealed yet.

New update. Dragon Magazine, which is a LN/Manga themed magazine run by the Fujimi Shobo imprint, same imprint as FMP light novels, made a new announcement that next month's FMP Special Conference will have news that will "MAKE THE CRYING FANS REJOICE."

I still don't know what to think about it, but it's clear they're trying to hype things up big time. Kinda excited to see what it is now although I should keep my expectations in line.....

While KyoAni are at it can they give us new Haruhi and a Hyouka continuation too? A lot of their older more "unfinished" series really deserve reboots.

I'm really trying to fight the hype because I'm expecting them to reveal its a game or something instead of the anime that will 'make the crying fans rejoice', still would love to have my pessimism proven wrong.

I loved and would want to see Hyouka continued as well, I've pretty much fallen into the 'not likely to happen' mindset for it though (never seen Haruhi)

Crossing my fingers that it will and it better not be some irrelevant spinoff.

Well, we're closing in on 10 years since TSR came to an end (last episode of TSR aired in mid October 2005) so maybe they're gonna do an anniversary type of thing. I'd love for there to be an anime continuation, but I won't get my hopes up.

My hopes are officially up! I am hyped now, and even if it is more than likely to be something stupid like a Japan only Vita game, I refuse to give in to my own pessimism. Kagame and Sosuke fo' life!

Another statement has been released by author Shoji Gatoh.

He comments on how the FMP fan may view this news of a special conference with skepticism and may be thinking, "Oh no! Not this again!! I won't fall for it this time!" But he goes on to promote the event a bit more being very genuine about it and urging FMP fans to look forward to it and he says it will be a worthwhile announcement.

Another advert released in October Issue of Gundam Ace 2015

Nothing really new except more teasing from Gatoh saying he believes the announcement "will not betray fan expectations" Given he knows the fans want a new anime the most I hope he's not playing with us.

Basically if this isn't an anime you have every right to get mad at these guys....

i really hope it is a 4 season. TSR ended just as kaname started to grow up and be a woman instead of a bitch.
