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