Things to note for this post:
  1. I've only read the translated versions of the main novels.
  2. I've only read the spoiler tags of the side stories here (everything in this post can be referenced at this link, too): http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=26478
  3. Like everyone else, I've watched and re-watched "FMP!", "FMP? Fumoffu", and "FMP! TSR".
Moving on...

---------

I think that there's enough material for the next FMP animated season to go past 24 (FMP! episode count). My reasoning is that, even though they're side stories, much of the FMP side stories are referred to in the main novels.&nbsp; Without these stories being animated, or at least being presented as flashbacks, in the animated season, some events in the main story wouldn't make too much sense.

Examples (with as little spoiling as possible):
  • In COMO - There is a reference to Jindai's first experience with a biological weapon (FMP? Fumoffu - Last Episode).
  • In CMMD - While recuperating, Sosuke meets up with some old war vets, who have large interest in Tessa. I believe they are first mentioned in VOLUME 13: "Anshin Dekinai Nanatsu Dougu" - Rouhei tachi no Fuga.
  • At the epilogue of Approaching Nick of Time - There is a reference to the FMP? Fumoffu's Hot Spring episode.
These are just a few examples that I could remember off the top of my head, but the list goes on. There's also the much needed background stories for Kurz and Sosuke, that are more in depth than just their first encounter with Mao. If the producers of the new season (hopefully it's Kyo-Ani) wants the viewers who have not followed FMP outside of the anime to retain the same connection to the characters as those who did, then they would need to animate the critical side stories, even if those episodes would fall under the Fumoffu category.

I guess this makes a lot of the side stories more than just side stories. Side note: FMP has the best filler, ever. :P

---------

Something for the Kurz fans: *Warning*

Spoiler:


Also, ...

Spoiler:


This is just some stuff that I was thinking...
hoho! I like it! New thinkers!

First, I totally agree with you and I have mention in an earlier post the fact Wraith is with some KGB officer. JUST before Leonard leaves, he gets a signal from Kalinin I believe that they must dip from Yansak11 (Chenorby-city) before the soviets came. (It was their territory I believe)...

So yes! Someone IS coming in the horizon, and POSSIBLY with Wraith. The hopes are high for him! I am suspecting Kurtz rolling in a wheele chair somewhere in the end...


However I -dont- agree with you about the plane crash that effected Sousuke's life completely is caused by the Omnisphere. First, yeah as hunter and others have said, it happen in 81-82...Sousuke was already 4ish (he has the same age as Kaname which means he was born in 82 or 81). the plane crash happen around 1985-86. It could be confirmed in the translations if it states the date.

Second, the plane did not crash because of Omnisphere forces, it was hinted in the last translation I read of Voice from the North side novel that the plane was SHOT DOWN because there was rumors that it carried a royal-treasure being transfered to London...which by the way, is where Sousuke was heading to...

They shot down the plane, took what they wanted, and left the rest to die.
IF this isn't true. Why bother covering up the names of the passengers and the existance of the plane at all? Kalinin tried to find records and it was poof,..gone.

They shot it down on purpose. Took the treasure. Covered up the evidence before anyone took noticed.

Soviets were well known in stealing art, treasures, and taking anything that crosses their borders. The area was a true hotspot.

thats my input!


--- To Hunter

I agree, the DeJaVue really wont be effecting Kurtz :s...his wounds are pretty real.
I also agree that both Mithiril and Amalgam are considered enemies of the soviets. (Remember Gauron shooting down one of them at a bridge?) Amalgam is on no one's side. So if they DO pick up Kurtz, Pray to god they spare him or Wraith actually sneaking him out alive. If he manages...



PS : GATOU WROTE SOMETHING!! WHAT DOES HE SAY?! ><

Something good?!!?



PSS: You may want to check out Mao in the Cover of new Sigma 13..o.O

About what he roughly says......
FMP Sigma will released 9/6, while the two anticipated FMP book will be on 20/7 and 20/8.
Also some more about comments on his blog as well as the burden of 2 years/15 years.

I forgot to ask this crucial little bit. Do we even have confirmation that part 2 is indeed the finale?

Looks like I came back to check stuff right on time. I hope to god the wait is finally nearing an end. Is it sad when all of a sudden your goal becomes live to the day you get to know the ending of a series?

Yeah that's what I've been doing. You kinda have to forget the series exists till the author does something. Anticipation of this level can cause cannibalism among fellow members!

Again I want to clarify that this image,
http://p.ybt.jp/ranoroom/4bfb87f836e21.jpg
specifically states that the 12th novel is indeed the finale?

HI, I just finished reading Approaching Nick of Time, and I wanted to know, are there any spoilers for the 11th volume?
Can't wait for Volume 11!
PS: I can't read Japanese, so I don't the meaning of the last post. BTW, in my opinion, FMP! is one of the best series(Novel,Manga, or Anime), Right up there with Naruto and One Piece,
though it feels much more mature compared to them(That's a plus point).
PS 2: Kurz Weber is alive. His death will obstruct the Happily Ever After, and come on, he and Mao just got on! How could he die like that! It'll probably be a very touching, if not sentimental scene when the two meet up.(Any bets on him being beaten up by her?)

Everyone who passed away with a purpose, just let them go as badasses.

And from my thoughts, there'll be more deaths in the two books.

Yep, I've said it too. Going out and kicking ass while doing it is manly!!!!!! Kurz, you are a man.

I thought Kurz proved his manliness by finally hooking up with Mao. O_o

Am going to quote Chidori on this one...


It doesnt make you cool to die off and sacrafice yourself! She screamed this to the top of her lungs to Sousuke during the earler episodes (terrorist taking over the plane), convincing Sousuke that being Sacraficial is totally fictional and not honorable at all...
and there was ALWAYS another way...
She'd feel horrible, guilty, and resentful if Sousuke and Kurtz would have chooise to risk their lives for her and

by her standards... was NOT a choice... "Am not going!!"

Usually in an anime, the guy would reason with her and sacrafices himself anyways! Oh no the hero!

But Chidori lampshades this and in this rare moment, Sousuke is convince to simply partner up with her and save each other's lives.


I expect the unexpected. Not this sacraficial honoring nonsence....

It's not cool or manly to die! if it happens so be it...am ensadden either way...
No one is happy that Kurtz died defending someone else...
but it happened...

Or maybe not? Who knows....

Am I the only one expecting a bad end? And it's a good thing! At least for me...

And let Kurz die in peace. He was far away from any help, or a hospital. He was in a dead city, alone and totally screwed. Nobody want's to see him like Locke...

Well, maybe we can see him alive and siding with Leonard... But that wouldn't be cool after all he did.

I actually think you are the only one expecting a bad ending. I can't see how it could be a good thing.

I agree with the Kurz part. I don't like how people hate on his death. He was a definitely awesome character, but this is a war. What do you expect. This isn't a children's book. Deal with it. He's gone.

@ Hobbit, if that seriously happened, I would be ashamed to have watched this series, and read the novels for that matter.

Happy endings for everyone! But yeah Kurz returning in some badass style (sniping a bitch?) would be pretty cool.

Actually he's not the only one.
I also expect a bad end may fall, but at least it's my defination of "bad end" of some more major character dies......Chidori or Sousuke included.
But then will be go EVA or something else to reset everything, I can't really tell.

If you really think about it. The time restart isn't necessarily a "bad end." It would actually create a more peaceful world without all the Whispered and advanced technology. Sousuke or Chidori dying would be stupid though.
