Calling all Full Metal Panic! fans! If you’re heading to Anime Expo® this year, be sure to mark your calendars because Shoji Gato and Shikidoji will be the special guests at the FMP! panel at AX 2017! This panel celebrates the 15th anniversary of the series as well as the upcoming Season 4, Invisible Victory!

(Funimation does not currently have announcements regarding Season 4, but it will be a great panel – check it out!)


April 20, 1998

Nineteen years ago today, Sousuke Sagara and Kaname Chidori met within the walls of Jindai Municiple High School in Tokyo, Japan. Make sure you celebrate this day by having the most fun you can!

- Watch/read the series again!
- Show the series to a friend and laugh/cry together!
- Reminisce on favorite scenes or lines!
- Dig out old fanart and see if you can redraw it better after so long!
- Dress up for some fun cosplay!
- And of course, make sure you have yourself a tasty plate of Sousuke’s favorite dish: Curry Rice!

Whatever you do today to remember this awesome series, be sure to let us know so we can share with everyone!

Translation: Full Metal Panic! News and Updates

First, Part 09 of the FMP! Audio Drama, “A Dancing Very Merry Christmas” called “The Executors” will be out next Monday on 6/19.  I will have the summary out sometime soon after.

Second, Shoji Gato and Shikidoji will be special guests at the FMP! panel at AX2017 in celebration of the series’ 15th anniversary.

Pretty exciting time to be an FMP! fan after so many years of absolutely nothing.
