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!
