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?

Amazon.com

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

Format: Blu-ray
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:

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.

Format: DVD
Full Metal Panic Fumoffu is a standalone comedy series created by Kyoto Animation. It does not follow any established manga plotline or pre set materials. It was created more as a love letter to the fans of Full Metal Panic who loved the absurd situations Sousuke got into when trying to protect Kaname Chidori, and at his time at Jindai High School.

The enjoyment of this series comes when you know Sousuke and the characters involved in Full Metal Panic, watching this without seeing the other 2 shows in my opinion is pointless as you may just find it a little. Well silly, you won't appreciate it if you watch this first.

Moving on.

Mostly based at Jindai High School these are short storys that show various random situations that Sousuke gets into when trying to keep Kaname safe from harm. The humor here comes from Sousukes tendency to over react and see everything as a threat.

With this Sousuke clashes with the more spirited characters in the show. From a crazy teacher to a Karate club to a crazy old man who Sousuke unknownly did something horrible too.

Being put into weird yet funny situations like coaching Rugby to fighting Yakuza in a giant Bonta Kun outfit, Sousuke never fails to amuse.

The normal life is a relative unknown to Sousuke. All he has ever known is war, conflict, things like that when he served as a guerilla soldier as a kid, and when joining Mithril and the TDD.

This in my eyes is where the series excels. Sousuke can be completely clueless, everyone around him and in his classes knows this, but he's learning. He's a good guy with a good heart.

Amazing Series. There's something to love in every episode.

Although I am starting this review, my son will finish it.

What are the good points about this anime -- it makes fun of the entire Full others. Too bad there are not too many others quite like it. So far we have seen gigantic robots that lost their story plot rather quickly or something so full of nudity or barely clothed girls that it made it difficult at best to watch. NOT THIS SET THOUGH.

The main characters are ridiculus in a scary movie type of way. Just think of an ex-military guy going to high school without any idea about girls, fun, or anything else us normal people take for granted. In one episode the ex-military guy has rigged explosives to lockers because he knew someone had gotten inside it. Later he discovers that it was just a girl who wrote him a love letter and dropped it off in the vents of his locker.

Now if you can handle this type of humor than you will definitely like this show. I have never seen the original Full Metal Panic, but plan on purchasing it after seeing this show. Even if Full Metal Panic winds up being more dramatic than this set, I think it will be still be worth watching, because so far this has been the best anime I have seen.

This was before the transition into animated shows being in HD, but FUNimation did a good job doing their best to update the show to HD standards. It still has black bars on the side since it isn't full HD, but still has a good amount of crispness to the images. The only weird thing sometimes is the bloom of the animation can be a bit bright on some scenes (not a big deal by any means).
This mini-series is by far the most fun, taking itself as un-seriously as it can and making each episode/half-episode as fun and entertaining as possible.
