For all of you FMP people still following, here's a treat, courtesy of a dedicated fan - Moonfaerie24: all of the novels formatted and edited, translation cleaned up and finally made enjoyable to read (in the case of earlier translations).

I'm storing them on the Google Drive (as with all others), so hopefully they're in no danger of being wiped out together with whatever sharing service would be hosting them.

04 Ending Day By Day p1
05 Ending Day By Day p2
06 A Dancing Very Merry Christmas
07 Continuing On My Own
08 Burning One Man Force
09 Come Make My Day
10 Approaching Nick Of Time
11 Always Stand By Me p1
12 Always Stand By Me p2


Also, Schwarzesmarken news coming soon. All I can say for now is, hopefully we can continue the translations within a couple weeks.


Upd: fixed links.

Upd2: As a bonus, here's a short story I found randomly sitting in my notes somewhere. Might not be polished, but I figured that it's better to release it anyway. I completely forgot about it, and really, it's worth the couple minutes you'll spend on it - Mao is brilliant (I swear, no trolling, I translated things as they were).

  2. The links seem to be out of order. Like 04 Ending Day By Day p1 leads to 07 Continuing On My Own.

  3. Awesome, thank you. A few of the links are crossed and volume 12 is linked to one of the previous volumes. If you could get volume twelve fixed it would be great.

  6. I've been looking for these forever, I truly appreciate your hard work. If I had Paypal I'd send some bucks your way. I'll get back to you in the future for sure.

    From Canada with love

  7. Six months had past since Tokyopop had close doors. So, you can make any translation with no worries! I really hope to see FMP!Another translations too!

    Where can I find the first 3 novels to read?

  8. For now all the links seem to be crossed, so in case anyone needs to know:

    4 goes to 7, 5 goes to 8, 6 goes to 5, 7 goes to 5, 8 goes to 12, 9 goes to 4, 10 goes to 09, 11 goes to 10, and 12 goes to 6.

    hopefully it'll get fixed in the future, but for now, there you go ^_^

  10. Can you not translate the volumes 1, 2 and 3 too? In my country, FMP has not been licensed.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Don't thank me people, thank the person who did the actual work - Moonfaerie.


    Sorry for the links - I thought Google would automatically post them in the right order, but as they say, if you want something done properly, do it yourself...
    I think I've fixed them all.

    As to the first three volumes, errr. I've never seen them myself since they were animated anyway. I'll ask around, but I don't really know whether I'll be able to help. Can only promise to keep an eye out.

  12. Well, I've foun the first novel, scanned from Tokyopop book:

    Cinderella Panic!

    Irrelevant Emotion
    http://www.4shared.com/office/BNiJHA5N/Full_Metal_Panic_Irrelevant_Em.html

    Now I think that we have all the translated material about FMP here... (of course, with Side Arms that was already posted by 顔掌 Translations).

    I have all the official novels, I can take shots of they if someone type it...

    1. Upon reflection, I don't want to attract any attention from any copyright holding industry types, so I don't think I'd host the novels (and they are largely irrelevant anyway).

      As to the two short stories, if you could send them to my email, I'd post them - since 4shared required login now.

    2. Just say your mail that I'll send you the files.
      About the official novels, I think that you can just leave the torrent link, because to you host it is dangeours.
      I'm planning to scan my books 2 and 3, but I need a portable scanner as the regular one will destroy the books, and only the volume 3 can be found by $140

    3. First, thank you so much for posting this, I feel like I found a goldmine on your page!

      Were you able to upload the two extra short stories onto your GDrive? If so, mind posting the links?

      Thanks again!

  13. Hello.
    First of all please excuse my bad english, I'm not a native speaker.
    Second, can somebody please tell me how to get the files? the only thing I get when I open the links is a site about how great google drive is, but there is no way to download it. I tried to use the help function and searched (ironicly with google) for a solution, but i coudn't find one.

    1. Firstly, your English is fine - many people never reach this level (and by the way, I'm not a native speaker either, just saying).

      I'm sorry to say I can't figure out what the problem is. There were a couple comments to another post that described a similar problem, but then it worked fine for those posters, apparently. Permissions are specifically set so that anyone, even those without Google accounts, can download the files, and I checked that, both myself and with others... if you really can't work it out, send me an email, I'll forward them.

      Sorry for the trouble i made. I found a solution for my problem, I only have to use another browser -_-
