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.

With a new director and studio, the series felt like a breath of fresh air. Honestly, it almost felt like the series never left us despite the 13 year gap. I also confess read more

Full Metal Panic! used to be a popular mecha show back in the early 2000s and after 2005, no one ever expected a sequel.

And welcome to 2018, where this sequel actually fucking happened. And no one is seeing this since its been forever since the last edition aired.

Anyway, here is my review!

Story (9/10)

This edition of FMP! had a really serious story with tension and twists everywhere. Awesome!

FMP! was a very intense season with being such a thrilling show building on the characters and action from the prequels very well.

The action was also well written as the battles used some smart strategies and the ending was read more

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. The writing for the first 2 seasons was such a miss that you can ask any fan what their favorite episode from those were and they will name a you a filler. 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 read more

After finishing the two previous seasons of Full Metal Panic! about 1,5 year ago, my hopes for a continuation was very low since the last season aired back in 2005. But surprise, surprise, here are we now 13 years later with a new fresh season and I was one of the people who got really excited about it. Actually, Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory (FMPIV) was THE show of spring 2018 I was looking forward to.

Full Metal Panic! Invincible Victory is a direct continuation of Full Metal Panic! Second Raid, and it does assume that your memory is fresh. So, I would recommend you read more
