    Fujimi Shobo's official website listing for its various light novel series no longer lists a fall release for the upcoming Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory television anime. The website had listed a fall 2017 release window at least as recently as April 14. The website removed the listing between then and April 30.

    The official website for the anime itself also removed its "this fall" listing for the series sometime between February and April.

    Prolly delayed to a later date or an earlier date.

    Absolutely loved Full Metal Panic! Such an underrated series, if you haven't seen it watch it, it's a very charming show with a good story.

    Robots, hamsters, and guns. What's not to like? This is one of those series I have all the DVD sets for but I hide them so my normal friends don't know I'm a weeb, and so my weeb friends don't know I enjoy bad anime.

    Also best character/smuggest of faces coming through:
