Here it comes...




 A Full Metal Panic Series
 A Full Metal Panic Series

And here I thought post con announcements would be done for awhile...
 
FUNimation recently announced a few new acquisitions at AnimeUSA (located in Arlington, Virgina.) The four titles were 
  1. Tetsuwan Birdy Decode 
  2. Sekirei 
  3. Full Metal Panic! 
  4. Full Metal Pani? Fumoffu 
 
Considering I could throw a rock at my shelf and hit a copy of Full Metal Panic, that and "Fumoffu" are not brand new titles (rather, they are pick ups from ADV's catalog.) Though, this is the first we've heard of Birdy Decode or Sekirei coming to North America
 

 Birdy Decode
 Birdy Decode
 Sekirei
 Sekirei
Tetsuwan Birdy Decode: Intergalatic Policewoman + injured Japanese boy share the same body. Wackiness ensues as she tries to capture criminals, and he tries to adjust to the extra 10 pounds of boobs on his chest.
 
Sekirei: After failing the college entrance exam twice, a disillusioned youth teams up with a total stranger to fight in what's know as the Sekirei competition. Also, boobs
 
Full Metal Panic & Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu: High Schoolers who are totally normal, except that they are part of a government run anti-terrorist organization.

I really like Sakurako Gokurakuin's art in general-- she does Sekirei and she also did a really cool manga called Category:Freaks, as well as a couple of really popular yaoi titles. But...I don't have a lot of interest in Sekirei @_@ It just doesn't look up my alley compared to her other stuff, which can be funny but usually has a slightly darker theme to it.

FUNimation has had a mixed history with translations and dub. I withhold judgment on these until I see what they plan to edit.
