The Lambda Driver is stupid, I'd be using it to make the world's best steak or some shit in between battles if I had one.

Wrong. She's a good second though!

Mao's first.

Tessa's last. After every other girl in the show. Dead last.
Yess!!!
Tessa is always first
I was on this ship until she burned it down herself in later novels. SMH, there comes a point where ruthlessness doesn't equate rationality but insanity.

Mao is great, with a subdued character arc throughout the novel while Chidori is surprisingly fun given I disliked her initially. Shame Tessa.

Nothing big yet. They've announced a audio drama and have a visual included.



We do have a title for the final season: Full Metal Panic IV
Full Metal Panic
Full Metal Panic Second Raid
Full Metal Panic IV

I guess Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu isn't just a funny comedy spinoff anymore.

So the animation studio behind FMP S4 seems to be... Xebec. Honestly I'm not sure what to think about that.

KyoAni is too busy with slice of life moe stuff.

Gonzo isn't the same after the bankruptcy.

At least it isn't Shaft.

I don't know if we're getting anything else for the animation. There will be a Gunpla-esque figure for the Arbalest if anyone is interested in that.

I'll take it.

I'd rather have a
Laevatein figure but I'll take that

And looks like that's it for FMP.

So the summarize: Full Metal Panic IV will premiere in Fall 2017 and will be animated by Xebec.

Plenty of Laevatein figs.

Probably around 50 bucks? Comes with a lot of shit, about 5-6 inches.

If you've got big money though, this Metal Build figure is the ultimate rendition of Laevatein. Supreme in quality and detail, about twice as tall as the first fig.
