The popular broadcast series Full Metal Panic (2002) began as a rambunctious mixture of mecha, magical girl, and high school romance genres. Student council vice president Kaname Chidori was a Whispered, an individual whose untapped psi powers made her a target for sinister organizations. To protect her, the antiterrorist mercenary corps Mithril sent Sergeant Sousuke Sagara to Jindai High, where his military bearing, hair-trigger reflexes, and extreme literal-mindedness always got him into trouble. For the second season, Fumoffu, the filmmakers dropped the mecha and magical girl elements to focus on the mismatched romance between Kaname and Sousuke, with hilarious results. When a girl leaves him a love note, Sousuke notices his locker has been tampered with and blows up the bank of lockers; when he gets stuck in line at the cafeteria, he fires off a pistol and shouts out his order. Sousuke infiltrates a local amusement park by disguising himself in a plush walk-around suit of their school mascot Bonta-kun, who looks like a giant hamster. The martial arts attacks are a wonderful foil for the character's super-cuteness, and the result is like watching Hamtaro go postal. Kaname, whose temper makes Yosemite Sam look serene, screams at Sousuke and belts him with an outsize paper fan. As Sousuke and Kaname, voice actors Chris Patton and Luci Christian create the funniest anime couple since Ranma Saotome met Akane Tendo. The character-driven slapstick and take-no-prisoners silliness may remind American viewers of old Hollywood cartoons. (Rated TV PG V: comic violence, nudity, alcohol and tobacco use, risqué humor, including real and fake profanity) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

Sousuke’s locked, loaded, and ready to attack – which would be awesome if he was going into battle. But he’s just going to high school, and all the qualities that make him a good soldier make him an amazingly awkward classmate. Poor Kaname knows that better than anyone, since Sousuke’s her undercover bodyguard. The guy’s supposed to protect Tessa too. But how “top secret” can he really be when he’s sneaking around in a teddy bear suit, blowing up lockers, striking out with every girl in sight, and taking a mech to the hot springs? Sure, Sousuke’s methods are a little intense, but high school’s tough. Collateral damage is to be expected, right?

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY, a release (mostly) free from video problems October 13, 2010
For those wondering about the show, my review will be quick. Sousuke is a teenage soldier/mercenary for a clandestine secret organization called Mithril. His job? Protect Chidori Kaname at all costs. Chidori is a "whispered;" someone with innate knowledge of high tech weaponry and defense tech. Of course, she doesn't actually KNOW she knows.

While the original series, Full Metal Panic! The Complete series [Blu-ray] has a small amount of comedy mixed in with the action, suspense and love drama, Fumoffu sheds all but the comedy and love drama from the picture. Fumoffu is light hearted and fun. In terms of series, the original series I would say is the most even in terms of balancing the comedy and action/violence. Fumoffu falls into the comedy side of the balance, meaning there is no balance. Then you have the final series released to date, Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid Box Set [Blu-ray]. Fumoffu and TSR are almost diametrically opposed. If you placed Fumoffu on the comedy end of the balance, you would place TSR squarely in the serious/violent end of the balance.

If you're looking for comedy, this is a good series to buy. If you're looking for action/violence, go for the follow up series, Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid Box Set [Blu-ray].

Now as for the discs themselves:

Video:

Wow. Anyone that's seen the ADV release and can compare side by side can attest to the fact that FUNimation has done an amazing job with Fumoffu.

This is my favorite comedy anime of all time. Besides all the good humor, it has good animation, excellent English voice actors, and the blu-ray version makes it all the better.

Mostly a comedy with a little destruction. Has good social and relationship lessons. There is nothing better than laughing at something and then watching a city block being demolished.
