  • Overdue but still appreciated love letter to the fans
    Of all the other previous FMP seasons, this was probably the weakest of them all. Even ignoring the fact the studio had some issues with production of this season, it doesn't change the fact that the pacing feels somewhat rushed because it only had 12 episodes to work with while the previous seasons had twice that. Despite my criticisms though, Its still very enjoyable and the heart and soul of ...

  • Great Mecha Anime A++
    S1 - Funny with mecha sprinkled in
    S2 - Serious with lots more dark elements
    S2 OVA - Great insight into the captains daily life
    S3 - No funny elements but a lot more hardcore mecha action
    S4 - Hopefully within the next 10 years!

    If you like Code Geass and the Gundam and Fafner series, this is a great one to start watching!

    kind of a let down!!
    meh, wasn't as good as the old series and having a review episode every 3 episodes is a bit much.
    The story is a bit lacking and didn't seem to go anywhere.
    could have been a great restart of the series, just wasn't there this season.
    maybe they will do better next season if there is another.

    Disappionted that this wasn't a return to or an evolution of an old favorite.
    So I've watched all of the Full Metal Panic seasons up until now. I like the characters, the comedy, and the unique balance and juxtapose between seriousness and silly that has always made the show fun. So I was hoping this would be better. I know a lot of people seem to have enjoyed it. I think I can see why. The attention to military detail is there. The characters are all acting like themselves ...

  • I'm rating five stars for all the arists hard work but I have some minor complaints
    Full Metal Panic is a series I have been with since almost the beginning. My series in the interest peaked with the series' hilarious and wonderfully animated comedy outing "Full Metal Panic Fumofou" done by Kyoto Animation. As I went back to rewatch the original series, I found a beautiful story, insanely catchy OPs for every season and some really fantastic animation, especially in the 3rd ...

    A Hesitant 5, But 5 Nonetheless
    Thirteen YEARS. It's practically at Duke Nukem levels of anticipation for those who grew up with Full Metal Panic!

    First, some backstory: For many people, this is a series of nostalgia, one of the first mecha anime they could really sink their teeth into (outside of the obvious Gundam series, but that is always farther removed from modern day than FMP! was), and it delivered a fascinating story ...

    A conflicted 4 out of 5 stars
    Let me start by saying that I love Full Metal Panic. I've watched all the previous anime entries and finished reading Sigma so I was super freaking excited when this popped up on the newly added shows for last season. The reason I'm conflicted is because I did enjoy this entry to the series, I felt it was well animated as well as acted and definitely added to the franchise as a whole. However the ...

    3.5 from a longtime fan
    Let's be honest, this project clearly didn't get the faith or budget it deserved. In fact based solely on this I'd never hire XEBEC. It's almost a tragedy after KyoAni's gorgeous work on TSR.

    They jammed three novels into 12 episodes, which wasn't ideal and resulted in less crucial details being left out. I can't help dwelling on where they could've cut down to optimize their time better. I ...

    Could not recommend more highly
    This is a fantastic continuation of a great series. The animation, story, and fight scenes are all as good as or better than the previous seasons. They kick things up a notch with a more serious tone and more emotional impact. If you want to genuinely fear for the characters and their welfare, and have a big investment in the outcome of the story, this is the anime for you.
    They seem to have kept ...
