After more than a DECADE of waiting, we are finally getting a brand new Full Metal Panic! TV anime. Yes folks, it’s true, because this was just announced during the “Fantasia Bunko Daikanshasai” event earlier today!
XEBEC will now be animating the new project, with Planetarian director, Katsuichi Nakayama, at the helm. They also revealed a brand new teaser visual for the this latest addition to the classic mecha anime. This latest anime, titled Full Metal Panic! IV, is slated to premiere in Fall 2017.
The announcement was so big, that the very people who made the previous anime adaptations so popular were on stage, as Tomokazu Seki (Sousuke Sagara), Satsuki Yukino (Kaname Chidori), Yukana (Teletha “Tessa” Testarossa), and series creator and light novel author, Shoji Gatoh, all gathered on stage to make the big announcement.
They also announced that they are adapting the 6th Full Metal Panic! Novel into an audio drama. The latest Full metal Panic! anime was released as an OVA back in 2006, with the latest TV anime being Second Raid, which was aired in 2005.
