From words of it, it's basically the same one that they released earlier on DM as a teaser (I got my link at the First Round spoilers).

I'll have those scans I promised hopefully at some point this week. I got my books on Wednesday, but I haven't been able to scan them in or start transcription/transliteration yet. Sorry I've been silent, haven't been at my computer much the past week or so, just checking in at random but not much talking.

When there's something up for you guys, I'll be sure to let everyone know.
I can't wait!!! Thank you!

Well, shutazen's done a great job in translating FMP and I'm sure it's not easy when it comes to translating jap-eng or vice versa. Let's give it some time ^__^

Hi everyone I´ve been off this boards for months :P. I´ve read all the novels till CMMD because I liked the way it ended. And now that the end is near I decided to read shutazen´s ANOT (actually I finished reading ir minutes ago :P). And also Hunterseeker´s notes for ASM1 (thanks a lot!! ).

I´ve been always longing for a happy ending, but i don´t see it happening =(. Also the romance thing between Leonard and Kaname really disgust me. I´m a bit sad and dissapointed for the path the story took =/ (I really really want a happy ending :P)... but I guess we´ll have to wait a few weeks and see how things turn out.

edit: excuse my english!

Hey everyone ! I'm a super newbie to this series thus far (only watched 26 episodes of FMP) so could you people answers some of my questions. ^^

- Is FMP (or any related series) still airing ?
- Is the Manga still around ?
- Whats the word on the series (is it dead or still around) ?
- What sort of fan-base does this Manga have (any active forums/sites) ?
- Does Kaname ever stop bashing Sousuke like a crazy retard !?
- Do Tessa & Sousuke have anything going yet ?!

Rite ! That'll do for now.

Okay, I'll get you up to date (as much as I've picked up; if I get anything wrong, please correct me fellow board posters).

1. No, there is currently no FMP anime airing. There have been 3 series made to date: a) Full Metal Panic!, b) Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu!, c) Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid.

2. FMP is not based on a manga, it is based on a series of novels by Shoji Gatou. There is a FMP manga titled Full Metal Panic! Sigma which is based on the original novels, just as the anime are. Sigma has followed the novels past where the anime have reached in the novels' storyline. However, it can get confusing trying to keep all the printed FMP titles straight because there are also comic side stories penned by original creator Gatou and comic manga unrelated to Sigma that are also out there.

3. The penultimate novel telling the main, dramatic storyline has just been published. The final novel in the series will be published shortly. The Sigma manga illustrating the events in these last two novels will likely drop soon after. Regarding anime, there have been rumors about a new series being produced since The Second Raid was released, but nothing has ever come of it (I mean, these rumors have been going on for about 5 years, so don't get your hopes up.) Ridiculously, there has also been talk in Hollywood about an Americanized movie being produced (think Dragonball: Evolution and Speed Racer, and shudder) starring Zach Efron.

4. I can't answer about the manga. I pretty much follow new word with the novels and anime on this thread alone.

5. Are you kidding? Any anime fan of any tsundere character knows the answer to that question.

6.

Spoiler:
The Zac Elfron rumor was debunked all over the internet and I think in the last anime magazine I read in April at Barnes and Noble. It's DEBUNKED there is no Zac.

Thank you.
Please see images.




BTW...

 ところで16日のプロモ発表てなんですかなんなんですか

1- As of right now there's nothing new airing, but there's plenty of material for them to make new anime of.

2- The original manga, done by Retsu Tateo, is complete. It covers the first three novels, which is also covered by the first season of the anime. It also has a few short stories from the novels, and quite a few short stories original to her version of the manga (many of which we find later on can't actually happen, but meh, they're cute XD)

FMP Overload (Ikinari! FMP) is all original comedy short stories. It's all right.

FMP Sigma is the newest manga and it is still running. It covers from the 4th book on, as well as tackling a few of the side stories, and does not have original content (although it takes a few liberties with the existing content). It originally skipped the 6th novel (Odoru/Dancing Very Merry Christmas), but recently Hiroshi Ueda, the artist for Sigma, has been covering this story. The newest, and final, novels are not yet covered.

3- It's not dead. There's still a fandom, and there's still new material. The absolute final novel releases in just under 2 weeks, and we'll finally see the end of the series. It's so exciting, but also so sad...

4- Jindai-High is an active FMP fan forum, full of lots of awesome people.

5- ...The Kaname-hate needs to stop. She's a tsundere, for one, so the beatings are rather mandatory, but unlike MOST tsundere characters, SHE actually has reasons for behaving the way she does. It's a strong cover she puts up to protect herself, because she's been hurt in the past and she's afraid of getting close to anyone again (The death of her mother). The fact that she cares about Sousuke scares the hell out of her.

Not only that, but it's also about the only thing Sousuke responds to. He's an idiot. We love him for it, but it's true. And he has his reasons for being an idiot, and she knows them, and she TRIES to reason with him, but it doesn't work. ...And with his blunders, a quick end to what he's doing is rather necessary, then an explanation. HE doesn't mind, so why should we?

(Also, cultural differences. I don't know ANY Asian-American, my husband included, who doesn't have stories about their parents constantly beating them over the head when they were a kid. It's strange to US, 'cause we look at it quite differently, but to them, it's a bit more normal. *shrug*)

6- No. Never. Not happening. That would be terrible. Dear god. Please. No. Nuh-uh. No way. Not only do I have an aversion to that pairing, but so does Sousuke himself. He would have an aneurysm and DIE. The stress would kill him. Seriously. He tells her he doesn't like her that way, and where we stand in the novels, she's more than realized she doesn't love him like she thought she did. She was just enjoying the opportunity to act like a 16 year old. That was it. That, and he had some mild personality resemblance to an old flame of hers. That resemblance went as far as "quiet and polite" however.
