The boisterous student Kaname Chidori and soldier Sousuke Sagara are enjoying a blissful high school life. However, their peaceful days are disrupted by the threatening terrorist organization Amalgam. Leonard Testarossa, a member of the organization who possesses "Whispered," seeks to procure Kaname and her knowledge.

Kaname and Sousuke's battle against Amalgam starts right in their own neighborhood, which eventually takes them on a hunt around the world. From the exotic lands of Laos to the barren Mexican coast, Sousuke must gather intelligence to bring down Amalgam. Meanwhile, Kaname's abilities grow, but so does her frustration as her resolve withers. Caught up in an intense game of hide and seek, as well as strategic plots, the pair try to connect and push beyond their own limits.

There’s an old phrase that goes “be careful what you wish for because you just might get it”. It’s been over a decade since Full Metal Panic aired and we got a new season at our hands. However, reviving old franchises isn’t something new these days. Just ask series like D. Gray Man and Dragon Ball. The real question is if Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory can be welcomed back like a hero.

Mixed Feelings

Overall Summary:
For my first review on MAL, this hurt to write. I'm a fan of FMP. I saw the original around 2003, loved Fumoffu and TSR, and waited 13 long years for this.

The love Full Metal Panic gets has always fascinated me. It's widely acknowledged among its fans that the characters deserve to be in a better series.

You know this series is peculiar when things like this can occur.

Kyoani realized --after the first cour-- that Gonzo's route is not what the fans really want, and gave us the comedic masterpiece that Fumoffu was. And now, it would seem like that will be the ...
