Full Metal Panic! The End of Day by Day is a Sci-fi, Action, Romance, Drama light novel thatís a very exciting read. Those who enjoyed the anime adaptation of the story would certainly enjoy this somewhat different experience.

Plot / Story
The story continues some time after the events from FMP! Into the Blue; with the main focus, this time being on the Mithril organization itself and the relationship between Sousuke & Kaname. Thereís plenty of exciting action that is easy to follow and heaps of developments that will keep readers on edge, like the sudden separation of Sousuke & Kaname and the events that follow.

With this the characters also receive a lot of development, namely Kaname & Sousuke who go through dramatic changes. Even some of the supporting characters play more of a major role, while others are pushed aside to make room for the new antagonist. What I particularly liked was how we get a detailed explanation on the characterís train of thought, letting the reader become more accustom with the character in question.

Drawing Style
This being a light novel, there isnít much to say about the artwork. Though occasionally there are times when a detailed picture is used to portray some important situations and even though they look really good the character designs do seem a bit off, at times.

Overall / Enjoyment
Overall The End of Day by Day proved to be an incredible novel that is certainly worth the read for any FMP! fan that wants to know exactly what should have happened during TSR. The light novel did a great job in describing and explaining the current situations and character thoughts well, just like a novel should, but it does occasionally go on into a ramble. Guess itís time to move onto the next novel.
