I've been waiting for years. YEARS! I'm a little disappointed that KyoAni isn't doing it but they have proven with Little Busters that they're Little Bastards.

Season one was awesome and Fumoffu was love but Second Raid... God damn! I can't wait to do a rewatch for this. I'm so happy right now.
KyoAni had nothing to do with Little Busters.

Man, that's awesome! I'm gonna be honest and say more Fumoffu like stuff would have been a dream come true (although the comedy might not have been as good without KyoAni), but this will have to do.

This is gonna be a ways away, but I hope the dub cast is the same.

About damn time, since Amagi Brilliant Park was a tease for those who are waiting for more FMP (even though both series aren't related at all).

I vaguely have a recollection of this show. Its like robots and ancient supertech or something?

I recall there being a giant mech going on a rampage in a city at some stage.

Alright got some new info. Might not be 100% verifiable ATM but I'll post it here anyways.

The same Japanese VA cast is coming back.

Shouji Gatoh (The writer of the Light Novels) is in charge of writing the new anime.

All of the remaining Light Novels will be adapted! This means the series will be adapted to it's entirety!

Fuck yes! I can't wait for the dub! This is one of the few animes where I actually preferred the dub to the sub.

My body will not be ready. There are a tone of insane or hype moments in the unadapted material. I hope they are adapted I all their glory.

Is the new content much better than the first season and Second Raid? Because I thought those were weak (first season especially) while the series excelled best at comedy (Fumoffu).

Oh shit, you're right. The Second Raid was 2005.

I'm so fucking old.

Mmm...I think it improved in terms of drama and it certainly got a lot darker after the events of TSR. But it's been a while since I've read any of the LNs, so it's possible it's better in my mind's eye. I do remember thinking it was better than the anime had been at the time, though.

Uhh hope it isn't Gonzo.

How does something they weren't involved in reflect badly on them?
KyoAni was supposed to make it (like they did all Key VNs up until then) but they were too busy with, I think, Chunibyo. They have a 1 anime per season rule.

I remember liking this but it's been so long and I've forgotten so much about this show that my hype meter is at "meh".

Anime was always ruined by the lame "protagonist has super special robot powered by feelings" trope that killed any tension in the battles. Otherwise it had potential. Perhaps (hard to remember).

Nice!

The story is pretty terrible, but the Laevatien is cool and nuts and seeing it in good animation action will be great.

But yeah, for people who are fans of FMP, the series completely jumps the ship at this point and is really, really dumb. We're talking about Jesus Yamato level of ridiculous missile spam + bad, bad story.

There's a few nice Sousuke/Kaname scenes though.
