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!
