Ok I'm bad at remembering... which one was which? The one I watched and had the VHS box set for was the same one where the first few eps were shown on SciFi's Saturday Anime back in the 90s. I'm not sure how to tell which one was which (and Wikipedia isn't helping me here...) KF

The TV show it focused more on the next generation of heroes after Parn, Deedlit, Etoh, etc. I admittedly haven't seen much of it, but the animation budget went way down.

Ah ok. The OVA then is the one that I watched -- I don't remember any characters after Parn/Deedlit and them (except seeing artwork). ...also artwork for Pirotess, but I never knew where she fit in (definitely wasn't in what I watched). KF

Bit of a rant but I recently got on a binge and watched Full Metal Panic: Invisible Victory. I’ve seen the previous seasons of FMP, even Fumoffu which I loved (considering the opening is like my favorite anime opening lol) and literally everything just got turned up to 11. And I love it.

I think a lot of people are liking the more serious tone of Invisible Victory. The only qualms I keep reading is people upset at the mecha animations, which I can agree that FMP has always had really artificial feeling mecha animation, but honestly it's not as distracting as it could be. Small arms fights were another qualm, but if small arms battles were animated realistically then no one would be enjoying it.

Both the novel and the manga adaptations are finished and I've read the manga up to the end. It's great to see how the manga designs have evolved since Retsu Tateo first started drawing it. Her works when the series first came out was very "90s"-ish (I guess a given considering FMP is a very late 1990s series) but the art direction has evolved enough to still be modern but also be identifiable as FMP.

Slayers surprisingly (and much to my joy) holds up great 20 years later! I have the box set for Slayers, Slayers Next, and Slayers Try. Need to set aside some time to watch/re-watch them soon.... KF
