Russell has been a semi-regular reviewer for UK-Anime since 2005 [mainly specialising in non mainstream manga titles].


Light novel publisher J-Novel Club have announced the acquisition of Shouji Gato's action comedy series Full Metal Panic, with the first four chapters made available now on the j-novel website.

The light novels, that were adapted into four anime series and was previously owned in the West by publisher Tokyopop (who released 4 of the 12 published volumes in the series), will be receiving an all new translation as well as covers taken from the most recent Japanese releases of the series.

Synopsis

Sagara Sousuke isn't your typical high school student. He reads military enthusiast magazines; he responds to questions with "affirmative;" he brings grenades to school in his bag. Though everyone at school takes him for a hopeless military geek, Chidori Kaname thinks there might be something more to him. When their plane is hijacked in the middle of a field trip, Kaname's instincts will prove correct: Sousuke is an elite, mech-piloting mercenary... and he's here to protect her!
