An interview last year revealed that Gatoh had “many ideas” for a fifth season and would be “happy” to see it completed.

Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory follows Mithril’s undercover anti-terrorist private military officer, Sousuke Sagara, and Kaname Chidori, a fiery Japanese high school girl. Sousuke must defend Kaname, who is ignorant of her values and a terrorist target.
In season four, Mithril faces Amalgam, a new opponent. Amalgam is a terrorist group that wants to destroy Mithril and its allies. Mithril also faces Amalgam’s whispered mecha. Sousuke flees when the onslaught separates him from Kaname. Despite Amalgam’s pursuit, he stays one step ahead. Amalgam kidnaps Kaname, so Sousuke must rescue her.

Finally, Sousuke and his comrades overcome Amalgam and halt the Whispered. Victory is costly. Sousuke and Kaname are back, but their relationship has changed. Seasonal experiences have matured them both.
Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory thrived critically and commercially. High-quality animation, action, and character development were appreciated. The season also raised questions about terrorism and democracy. Stay connected for more updates!
