I saw an anime called Full Metal Panic, and I got to say that it is awesome. It has comedy, mecha and the occasional High School Situation. If you've heard of this then please tell me where you saw it, greatly appreciate it if you do

I saw the first manga part in the new english Newtype, and hopefully I'm getting the fansubs soon.. it looks like a really cool anime! ^_^

Yes, I have heard of it, and watched the entire series. It is really good in the beginning, kinda slow for a few eps, then picks up again at the end. Worth buying just for Chidori Kaname. :D

Anyone know how long its been out? and where can I get a fansub?

Full Metal Panic has just been liscenced. Within the last . . . oh, three weeks, I think. Hmm maybe longer. But it IS liscenced, by ADV I think (could find out), and reputable fansub places should have pulled it already. Sorry.

FMP was released on fansub from January to around April. It was licensed mid-run, however. There were of course a few groups who continued to sub it nevertheless though. It is licensed by ADV, along with Angelic Layer, I believe.

Well, guess I should save up my money and buy the DVDs when they come out, however if they get too popular then I should reserve the set when they get to my anime store
