Review: Full Metal Panic


Plot Summary: Sousuke Sagara, a seventeen year old military specialist working for the secret organization MITHRIL, has been assigned to protect the latest “Whispered” candidate Kaname Chidori. To complete this task Sousuke will have to deal with enemies from his past as well as the occasional panty thief. Unfortunately for Sousuke, the toughest part of his mission isn’t only protecting Miss Chidori but also getting used to living an average High School students life, no easy task for someone raised on the battlefield.

This is a great anime to watch if you enjoy Mecha type anime, and the comedy school type anime. Sousuke has to deal with all these deadly assassins that want Chidori, and the same time he has to deal with school, and Chidori. Sousuke was in Guerilla warfare since he was a child, and he joined Mithril. Mithril is setup as an independent group which combats terrorism in other countries with no allegiances to any country. The action, plot, and animation in the series are great and extremely enjoyable. On top of all the action you can stop laughing at Sousuke and all his antics in the school, because he hasn’t completely adjusted to the school life and the difference in school and military doesn’t seem apparent to him. And Chidori gives him a very difficult time at school because of the way he acts, and she beats him up multiple times because he seems to act like a pervert at first, since he is trying to hide, and be covert while watching and protecting her. I really recommend this anime because of the balance of action and comedy!

    This sounds to be a fun anime to watch!…It somewhat reminded me of Kare Kano and Inuyasha!
    p.s. what’s a Mecha type anime?! I’m sure I’ve seen it but I don’t know that it is called that! :S

  2. Marzouq if you would allow me .. Mecha type anime is all anime with gigantic mecahnized robots aka mecha in this.. Such anime would have to include the entire gundam series, gundam win operations, zeta, seed, destiny etc… on top of the macross universe. More recent mecha anime would be Full metal Panic and it’s sequels. One of the most celebrated mecha stype anime would have to be Neon Genesis Evangelion.

    Zouq… FMP is one heck of a hillarious anime, and it doesn’t come short of action too … just a heads up the fumoufo sequel is purely comedy but FMP THE SECOND RAID is simply stunning… make sure you check those out, it gets a bit repetitive during some episodes, but this anime is on my top 10 list :)

  3. LOL “Full Metal Panic” 8e9etah 8e9ah. You see, I asked my cousin (who has an aramix account) to get me the first three DVDs of Full Metal Alchemist. Instead, the idiot got me Full Metal Panic. I was so frustrated, and he said he would have Panic for himself (even though he didn’t know what’s about) and repay me back by buying Alchemist for me. So he called me after two days: This anime is f***ing great, you really missed a great show. Oh well, at least I got Alchemist in the end :)

  4. Cute UAE: like fractal said! Mecha anime is basically anything with big robots! hehehe!

    Fractal: yeah I’ve seen both Fumoffu and Second Raid, and im writing up the reviews for them! They were both great!

    FallenAngel: You are really missing out if you dont see this anime! Its that good!

    CyberRowdy: hahahahahhaa! I will have a post for you soon! hehehehe!

  5. i havn’t watched that many animes as i only really started this year, and i have a lot of homework and that, but i have watched almost all of the studio ghibli movies, all naruto normal series and 63 shippuden, momentarilly im watching bleach and have read dozens of manga…i have heard good things about full metal alchemist…and heard of full metal panic…whats the difference between the 2?

  6. Anime Games

    I think most of the list are more of a for matured viewers this type of anime is what I really like not too boring when watching but of course should also have a nice storyline.
