Full Metal Panic! Volume 9
All hope is not lost! Mithril might be scattered to the four winds for now, but its members continue to work toward the same goal. While Tessa concocts a plan to strike back at Amalgam, Hunter conspires to create a new ace machine to turn the tide. Meanwhile Sousuke—even with few allies, limited resources, and a body riddled by mortal wounds—remains determined to free Kaname from Leonard's clutches. Can these disconnected factions meet up and begin working together in time?!
