I already answered that question here http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=27003 didn't I? Please do not post if you are going to write nothing other than a one-liner which a PM would suffice - this is a Q and A thread for questions regarding FMP, not a place to discuss what I plan to personally read on my spare time commuting to and from work.

kj, thank you so much for the summary of bomf! i have a few questions if you're able to answer them.

the memory of his mother - is that the only memory he has of his parents? what about his dad, or other possible relatives? has there ever been hints about them at all in the other books?

i find it passing strange that sousuke never tried finding out anymore about his family while in japan and i'm curious about what his life would've been like if that plane crash never happened.

No, so far that is the only image he has in his memory. Perhaps later novels might show some more details, but at "One Man Force," that is the only thing written.

Of course, there does seem to have hints of what happened in a short story that has yet to be published into one novel, but since I do not read Dragon Magazine, I wouldn't know.

No, and the answer is always the same. As for how long it takes, you can take a look at the Information and FAQs regarding FMP and look at the original publishing date between each novel and figure that out by yourself. Rest assurred of course, is that is just a reference, so even if several months pass by and you screaming "when is the next volume coming out" does not make things go foward.

hmmmmm....interesting. I wonder why they changed it? Any ideas? And does he ever give any reasons for preferring the glock? I can't remember off the top of my head.

It's all speculations up to this point, we don't know anything yet. I'm sure kj will let us know first thing if a new season/ova/movie will be out. I'm more of hoping that they license TSR soon, I'm sure that if the DVD sells great internationally it will contribute even if only a little.

We can only hope and wait.

Basically, FMP is a series of light novels. The pictures are scarce and far in between. It's written in prose form and serialized in Dragon Magazine and later compiled into their novel/book form. Side stories are separated from the main story novels and so far TSR is based on the novel Owaru Day by Day. After that 3 more novels came out, Odoru Very Merry Christmas, Tsuduku on my Own and Moeru One Man Force, these are all part of the main story.

If you want to read the english translation of the novels you might want to visit this website:

http://boku-tachi.net

I hope this helps in some way.

Better yet, you could've just redirected this question by making him look at: Information and FAQs regarding FMP which practically explains which episodes are which for each light novel that are out up to "Moeru One Man Force."

There are none. ADV has translated versions of the manga which you can buy online (I don't like them very much).

It's just more profitable for them if they do continue with the series. The only problem is that, right now, we don't really have much storyline in the novels to make a full-size series just yet. It's just my opinion, but I think that a new series could only show up in late 2007-2008.

I was actually scared when I heard that Saint Seiya took over 15 years to be finished. If that happens to FMP, I'll be on a hunger strike for sure.


About the manga, it's not that bad, I've been buying it from ADV-Manga, 2 at a time. It's kind of like watching the whole series again, just in black and white and not in motion. But IMO Tessa looks way more cure in the manga :x

I thought that, but also Souske's face looks fat, Mao's neck is even longer than usual, Tessa's sideburns are odd and Kurz's hair is way too short. I think Kaname is the only one who benefits from the manga treatment. Oh, and I am probably biased against the manga because I am a flaming Kurz fangirl. :P

What I like about the manga is that you can read these side stories regarding Kaname and Sousuke at school (ones that wernt included in seasons 1, 2 and fumoffu)

one I really liked that I wish they included in fumoffu was

Spoiler:


Actually, that story was based on the short story "Maigo no Old Dog" from Dounimo Naranai Gorimuchuu. As it is a short story that is yet to be incorporated into anime form, who knows? It may show up in the next series should they decide to go with the ones that follow the short stories like "Fumoffu" did.
