Thoughts/Review:

Getting Lost in the Job

One of the interesting elements to me is how Sousuke started losing his focus on the real reason why he signed up with Nami’s crew. I had figured he needed money to go after Kaname, and I’ve no doubt this is still true. However, had Kaname not been in the picture, Sousuke could have easily lived a life as an AS arena pilot. The corrupt police aside, it would have been a good life for Sousuke.

Nami would have also been a good girlfriend and even wife for Sousuke. They would have made a good husband and wife team in working the business, getting more sponsors, and who knows, maybe even get more AS units. Kinda like a NASCAR situation.

I liked how Sousuke acknowledges how comfortable he’s become in this life. He may still be dense about women, but in a way, I think he realized how things could have been with Nami, if Kaname weren’t in the picture.

Back On Mission

We learned that it has been three months since Amalgam attacked Mithril. I can’t remember if this Amalgam arena plot element was discussed in The Second Raid or not. If someone knows, let me know.

That aside, things make sense on why Sousuke is doing what he’s doing. Mithril may be dead, but there’s still Kaname out there somewhere. While I suspect she’s in NTR mode now, no doubt, Sousuke will be able to NTR her back, ’cause that’s what a manly MC would do if his girl was stolen from him. 😉

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

I’m behind, as always, so I better wrap up my review of Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory 06.

  • With Kurama getting involved in this story arc, I’m really having trouble seeing how this arc ends. I guess nothing to do but wait and see.
  • I really hope Nami and crew don’t get killed. Nami may have some heartbreak ahead, but I can handle that. I don’t think I could handle her getting killed for some reason.

In the end, Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory 06 links this current story arc back to the main story. I’m looking forward to seeing where things go from here.
