posted on by Alex Mateo
The official website for the three-film director's cut anime project for the first season of the Full Metal Panic! television anime series revealed the key visual for the third film in the project on Friday.
Attendees will receive a miniature drawing featuring the characters Teletha "Tessa" Testarossa and Richard Mardukas by illustrator Shikidouji.
The films are screening in Tokyo at the Kadokawa Cinema Shinjuku and the Tachikawa Cinema City theaters, and in Osaka at the Umeda Burg 7 theater. Each film will screen for one week.
The first film, subtitled "Boy Meets Girl," opened on November 25. The second film, subtitled "One Night Stand," will open on January 13. The third film, "Into the Blue," will open on January 20.
Full Metal Panic! centers around a mercenary group called Mithril on a parallel Earth in which the Cold War did not end in 1991.
The original Full Metal Panic! light novel series debuted in 1998, and Fujimi Shobo published the series' 12th and final novel in the main series in 2010. The novels have more than 11 million copies in print. Tokyopop published the first five volumes before the company shut down its North American branch in 2011.
