Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory - BluRay Improvements

Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory ins now fully available on Blu Ray in Japan. Here are some comparison shots from the BluRay and TV version. In general the BluRay image is slightly darker than the TV version and looks sharper due to less compression. Major changes were made to episode 6, 8, 9, 10 and 12 with some smaller changes done throughout the season. This list is incomplete as there are many more shots that were also improved. Whenever there is a new shot it usually replaces one that was already used at a different point of that episode.

Full Metal Panic! 20th Anniversary

20th Anniversary Promo Image

The first Full Metal Panic! light novel Boy meets Girl was released in Japan 20 years ago today.

Happy Birthday!

There's an event site and some celebrations have already taken place. Since all of the FMP chapters were published in dragon magazine it is possible that these were actually released before September 18, 1998. But since today marks the day of the first FMP light novel getting released, that has to count for something. So once again, Happy Birthday!

Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory - Fan Support

FMP!IV Promo Art Work By Shiki Douji
Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory just finished airing. The season adapted three of the remaining light novels. As assumed by most of us, each light novel arc was turned into four episodes. Those included the books ON MY OWN (ep 1-4), ONE MAN FORCE (ep 5-8) and MAKE MY DAY (ep 9-12). This leaves three more light novels. Namely NICK OF TIME and STAND BY ME 1+2 (there's also the skipped Light Novel VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS). As mentioned before, NOT and SBM 1+2 will likely make for the final 12 episodes. Will we get those? Unknown.
