Possibility of a new Full Metal Panic?
I was browsing Toys Logic today, and I was surprised by the amount of Full Metal Panic merchandise that is coming out this year. There’s a Tessa figure coming out in February, a ridiculously expensive Arbalest coming out in June, and Revoltech released an ARX-8 figure some time last year. I find this odd as there hasn’t been a new FMP series since The Second Raid ended in October 2005. Perhaps toys have a bigger market than they did when the show was airing. I don’t think this is the real reason though. While I have absolutely no hard evidence to back up this statement, I believe that a new Full Metal Panic series may be in the works. The only other suggestion I’ve seen besides the toys is the numerous FMP references in Lucky Star. There’s even one time where they talk about when the next season is coming out. As a fan of the series, I’m hoping that we get some new Full Metal Panic soon. It’s been way too long.
