Information and FAQs regarding FMP

The following infos were originally posted back by me in 2004, but has since been recovered thanks to many helpful members after the crash. Thank you!

CHAPTER ONE: "FULL METAL PANIC!" IS A NOVEL.


What is "Full Metal Panic!" ?


"Full Metal Panic!" known in Japan as "fullmeta" and outside of Japan as FMP, is an anime based on a novel


What do you mean by novel? Do you mean graphic novels? Then it is from a manga right?

NO. When I say novel I mean a novel. The ones with letters in in which you actually have to read everything word for word.

"Full Metal Panic!" is a 'light' novel that is aimed for teenagers. Here in Japan, we have many novels that are targeted for teens. Many of these novels become animated when they are successful. Just to name a few, "Slayers," "Scrapped Princess," "Maburaho," and "Maria-sama ga Miteru" are all animes that are based on light novels. A broad definition of the term can be found on the English wikipedia site.

These novels are initially serialized on a monthly magazine (just like mangas are initially serialized in a weekly/monthly comic magazine).

In the case of fullmeta, stories are initially run on Monthly Dragon Magazine - a magazine aimed at teenagers from the publisher Kadokawa Shoten. When enough stories are compiled to form one volume of a novel, they are placed into a book. The book is released by Fujimi Fantasia Bunko press - a subsidiary of Kadokawa Shoten.

A light novel consists of around 200-400 pages of text, with around 5-7 picture inserts in them. Light novels are a tag team effort between the author and the illustrator. The author writes up the story, while the illustrator draws cover designs and picture inserts for a specific scene. See example below:

Copyright: Fujimi Fantasia Bunko, Gatoh Shoji, Shiki Doji / "Houtte Okenai Lone Wolf" pp. 152-153



[right (pg 152)]: roughly 95% of the book consists of this
[left (pg 153)]: the other 5% has illustrated art

In the case of "Full Metal Panic!" the original author is Gatoh Shoji, and the illustrator is Shiki Doji. In all fullmeta anime that you see, you will see their names credited for main story and main character designs.

CHAPTER TWO: THE ANIME "Full Metal Panic!"

The light novel "Full Metal Panic!" was very successful that it spawned its own anime series.

The anime "Full Metal Panic!" was originally scheduled to be broadcasted beginning Fall of 2001. Unfortunately, the initial airing coincided around the time 9-11 occurred in the United States. Since "Full Metal Panic!" involved a mercenary who lived through the hell of Afghanistan (Sagara Sousuke) and a hijacking of a plane, the censor board at WOWOW decided it was not the appropiate time to air at that time. The broadcast was moved back to January 2002.

"Full Metal Panic!" aired on WOWOW BS satellite for a 24 episode run. Anime production was done by GONZO.

CHAPTER THREE: THE ANIME "Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu"

Technically, this is not a sequel to the previous "Full Metal Panic!"

As I have written in chapter one, FMP is based on a light novel.

The light novels volumes can be divided into two distinct categories:

A. The main story
B. Short story compilations

The former and the first anime "Full Metal Panic!" was based on the main storyline, with some episodes taken from the comedic school life stories.

On the other hand, the latter and "Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu" is based entirely upon the side stories which deals with comedic antics centered upon Sagara and Chidori's life at Jindai High School, and a close-up of other characters on their everyday normal (or, not-so-normal) life.

Quoting the author, "these side stories are just comedic antics to show the life of Sousuke and Chidori at school when they are not being involved as a target of underground military conspiracy."

So, "FMP? Fumoffu" is not a sequel, but more of a side story depicting Sagara as he tries to adapt to civilian life as a normal Japanese high school student.

The anime "Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu" began airing on FujiTV on August 2003. However, it seems "Full Metal Panic!" series is cursed with uncontrollable events that inhibits its initial broadcasting schedule. When "FMP? Fumoffu" was supposed to air, it got stopped at FujiTV's censor board. At the time, there were news regarding kidnapping and a sensitive issue regarding food poisining at schools. Hence the initial airing date of "FMP? Fumoffu" was delayed three weeks to reshuffle the episodes.

The anime was done by Kyoto Animation. This anime would start the legend that "Kyo-Ani = Gods that create high quality anime." Reference: See "AIR" (TV Version)

CHAPTER FOUR: THE ANIME "Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid "

Apparently, the author Gotoh Shoji loved the way Kyo-Ani handled "Fumoffu." Fans also seem to have preferred Kyo-Ani's godly sakuga quality over the first GONZO version. Hence, the anime production rights for the next series was handed over to Kyoto Animation once again.

"Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid" uses the same staff and director for "Fumoffu." And since Mr. Gotoh himself was impressed for their handling of "Fumoffu," he came in to supervise the slight arrangements that he wanted to do for some of the characters and stories for this series.

Title: "Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid"

__________________________________________________ ______________
Several items to note:
  • The anime "Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid" is largely based on the novels "Owaru Day By Day - (Upper Vol.)" & "Owaru Day By Day - (Lower Vol.)"
  • Episodes 01-04 are not in the original novel. The scripts for these episodes were re-created by the author himself as he sat down with the anime staff for the anime series. Hence, Mr. Gatoh Shoji's is credited as the main script writer for episodes 01, 03, and 04.
  • Episode 08 is also credited with Mr. Gatoh Shoji as the main script writer
  • The character Gaetz is not in the original novel. He was one of the characters that was re-created by Mr. Gatoh Shoji for this anime.
  • The two twin sisters Xia Yu Fan and Xia Yui Lan were brought in as the anime replacement for the twin brothers Fei Xiu and Fei Won in the original novels.
  • Fans of "FMP!" here in Japan were very excited that Corporal Yan Jun-Kyu finally made an appearance in TSR. Corporal Yan is a SRT member and his Call sign Uruz-9. His specialty is being able to drive anything like a pro, with the exception of an AS. Corporal Yan made his first appearance in the novel "Hashiru One Night Stand" as Mithril's get-away driver against the Behemoth. However, his existence was wiped out in GONZO's "FMP!" anime. However, thanks to Kyoto Animation, Corporal Yan was able to make his anime debut in episode 02 of "FMP! TSR" It was especially surprising that his voice was done by the veteran seiyuu Sasaki Nozomu.

Megami no Rainichi (Onsen Hen) "FMP? Fumoffu" Ep. 9 covers this story
While Tessa is visiting Jindai, the usual members decide to go to an onsen hot spring. If you are man, you know what you've gotta do, don't you?

Trivia: Actually, this was an anime original story for "FMP? Fumoffu." However, the author Mr. Gatoh Shouji loved the way Kyoto Animation handled this original story (he especially was highly impressed by the director's and animators' god-like work in hiding the girls' nipples and private parts), he decided to re-adapt this into the novel.
