Synopsis:“Full Metal Panic returns with a brand-new, action-packed series, continuing from the events of The Second Raid.
Invisible Victory finds Sagara Sousuke and his colleagues at “Mithril” under fierce attack at their bases around the globe from a rival organisation known as “Amalgam”. While Sousuke and Kaname face new tests thanks to a dangerous threat on their home turf in Japan, Merida Island and Mithril’s flagship submarine, the Tuatha de Danaan, both come under fierce and concerted attack themselves.
The series is written by original Full Metal Panic author Shouji Gatou, with production handled by animation studio Xebec. The series is directed by Katsuichi Nakayama (Planetarian, assistant director Evangelion 2.0 and 3.0), while the series’ character designer Osamu Horiuchi returns to his role for the new series.”
