As of now, ADV haven't acquire the license for TSR. No news yet. Personally I think ADV is taking too long in acquiring TSR license though.

It has just released Fumoffu, too.
I'd say that only by the end of 2007 we'd see an english version of TSR.

Well in the Philippines, FMP is already licensed by local network companies but it is dubbed in filipino(tagalog) and it is just a complete mess. Nobody distributes offical DVDs here so I have to order online and have it deliver to me via FedEX since the postal service is very very unreliable.

I wouldn't buy an official FMP DVD dubbed in tagalog anyways.

I live in the states, though I'm braziilan. But I've heard Animax is showing FMP! Fumoffu down there.

And the issue with Brazil is that, currently, it's anime market has been almost completely directed to the mass of not-so-anime fans. The dubbing they did was horrible too.
Changing "Tokyo Mew Mew" to something like "Meow Power, The Super Kitties" just makes me sad, mad and revolted.

FMP!TSR is slated for a US release on May 9, 2006. I pre-ordered vol.1+box for $34.99 last Friday.

ADV will be the licensing company again.

Where in the world did you find this out from?

I'm not aware of any license announcements concerning Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid. And May 9th 2006 (in just over two months time) seems rather soon, in practice it would mean it was actually licensed sometime last year.

Are you sure you have the correct series here, or maybe the release you've seen is a bootleg. I'm puzzled since none of the other sites (such as AoD or ANN) mention this release.

I was just checking up on that myself. Maybe I missed it or something but it's not on AoD, or ANN, or even the ADV site. So not quite sure where you saw this...

I pre-ordered it through Suncoast. It is not a bootleg. Here is a scan of the pre-order slip I got from Suncoast.

FMP!TSR vol.1+box



I haven't seen an announcement of it on any websites either so it might be a mistake that I was able to pre-order it. But there is not a chance in hell that Suncoast would have it in their DB without it actually being licensed.

You say you haven't seen an announcement on any website, well that's about the only thing you've said I agree with.

So care to explain why even the Suncoast website doesn't list this FMP!TSR boxset? And how do you know it's from ADV? Please show us some proof.

Suncoast
Searching the Suncoast website for "Full Metal Panic" turns up only the first two series, nothing on TSR. Searching for "Second Raid" turns up nothing.

My guess is that they have something mixed up because I'm sure someone would know about the title especially since it's release date is only 9 weeks away. My guess is that you are going to receive Full Metal Panic 1: Fumoffu - Full Metal Pandemon which had a release date of 10th May 2005 (not 2006) and costs $39.98.

Sounds like you don't want it to be licensed.

I don't work for Suncoast so I can't tell you why it is not listed on their website.

I paid a visit to Suncoast again today and it is listed as Full Metal Panic! The 2nd Raid vol.1 + box. They also have FMP!TSR vol.1 on sale for $19.99 on the same date. I too am sure someone knows about this title. But all I know is that I've got the pre-order slip for it.

I highly doubt that since the numbers Suncoast uses to track DVDs had assigned a different # to FMP:F.

Sorry I can't give you more info about it. If there is anyone else on these forums that actually buys their anime on DVD in the US can pay a visit to their local Suncoast and try to pre-order the same thing maybe they can shed some more light on the situation.

It's not a question of wanting it to be licensed, because I don't think there's a person on the planet who doesn't want TSR licensed. The question is pretty clearly "Is it licensed" and there doesn't appear to be a single iota of publicly available information on the web (at least) saying it is. Considering how lucrative a title like this is inevitably going to be for whoever ends up licensing it, I can't see any reason why they'd keep the license a secret.

Common sense says this still (unfortunately) isn't licensed, but if someone can show evidence to the contrary, I certainly won't complain. Maybe I'll bitch about the licensing company for not announcing it publicly, though.

No. Common sense says it has been long licensed but ADV has not wanted to announce the license officially yet. Unfortunately, there are no Suncoast stores around here so I cannot verify it.

Um... I think there would be a lot less whining if they announced their license within a month of the first DVD coming out. That way, there isn't a whole bunch of people complaining how it takes forever for R1 DVD companies to put out a product. I mean, are there really any advantages to announcing a license early?
