Product Description

It’s Full Metal Pandemonium! Sousuke and Kaname are back in action! And this time, the battleground is the school ground! High-yield explosives and hilarity come together with a bang, as the somber soldier and his unwitting target brave everything from lovesick "terrorists" to an unforgiving teacher who is bent on revenge. But as good as he is with guns, Sousuke is one clueless commando when it comes to girls – especially Kaname! A day at the beach turns sour after Sousuke misses the point one too many times (and even fails to notice Kaname’s new bikini). Then, when Kaname is suddenly kidnapped, it’s up to our dense hero to devise a daring rescue! Don’t miss the hilarious antics of everyone’s favorite military maniac – and Jin High’s most fiery female – as the full-throttle action begins!

Amazon.com

For the second season of the popular comedy-adventure Full Metal Panic (2003), the filmmakers dropped the sci-fi elements and focused on the romantic contretemps. Kaname no longer commands psychic powers; Sousuke has been furloughed from Mithril. But that doesn't mean life at Jindai High gets any calmer. Sousuke remains highly trained, extremely suspicious and terminally dense. When a girl leaves a love note in his locker, he notices the locker has been tampered with and blows it up. Unable to get through the line at the cafeteria, he fires off a pistol and declares his order. When a gang member tries to threaten Sousuke, someone has to translate thug slang into military jargon and vice versa. Kaname's standard response to Sousuke's excesses is to belt him with an outsized paper fan. Winning performances by voice actors Chris Patton and Luci Christian make Sousuke and Kaname the most fractious anime couple since Ranma Saotome met Akane Tendo. (Rated TV PG V: comic violence, minor risqué humor, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Format: DVD
Full Metal Panic Fumoffu is the sequel series to the original Full Metal Panic anime series in which Sousuke Sagara and some of his buddies from the anti-terrorist agency called Mithril were assigned to observe and protect Kaname Chidori. Kaname is one of the "Whispered", a person who unknowlingly carries classified military secrets in their memories. The original series never gave very much more info about it than that. Sousuke is sent into Kaname's high school posing as a fellow student.

Whereas the first series tried to strike a balance between Sousuke's combat missions and the humorous slapstick of high school life, sometimes with mixed results, Fumoffu focuses solely on the comedy bits at school. Sousuke doesn't have a clue as to how to live a normal teenager's life. He's been trained to kill since an early age. So, for example, when a secret admirer puts a love note in his shoe locker, Sousuke, noticing his locker has been tampered with, proceeds to place plastic explosive on his locker and detonate it. Another example of his approach to life is when him and the rest of the characters are playing a watermelon smashing game at the beach, he takes out a police riot shotgun and blows it away. And he also has no clue that Haname likes him. To him, romance is irrational and unknown. It's up to Haname to show him how to function in the real world beyond fighting mecha and covert ops.

Haname has her own problems though, whether its an obssessed voyeur, or Sousuke scaring the rest of the students with his handgun brandishing, but its nothing a punch, a hit with a fan, or a baseball bat beating can't solve. Another nice touch is that the class president sees all of Sousuke's antics as acceptable and perfectly normal, much to the consternation of Haname.

First, if you read the manga, you would realize that this series is more of a supplemental than a sequal. Several mini-stories were delayed to make the first season more mecha-based. Second, Chidori is still a Whispered. Third, the title is based off the words of Sosuke (silent Japanese U) in a Bonta-Kun outfit. Fourth, more Panic can only be a good thing!

Someone related this to Ranma 1/2, but if you want more of than, see Kenshin. This series has some of the same woman-beats-on-man, but with a different twist. Chidori is trying desperately to teach Sosuke to deal with Real Life (as opposed to mercenary life--which is why he still attends high school, to protect his Whispered assignment). Sosuke takes her abuse, although in any other situation, he'd defend himself better, and that is just one symptom of his attraction to her. There are a lot of subtle references, and some not so, with these two, which makes the series all the more desirable to watch.

Romance! Guns! Comedy! Things blowing up! How could it get better? Oh, yeah, if Sosuke ever gained the courage to kiss Chidori...

Full Metal Panic? - Fumoffu is taken right from the pages of the original manga that made this franchise a hit! Unlike the original Full Metal Panic!, Fumoffu is a light romantic comedy with no mecha in sight (unless you count the Bonta-Kun outfit). Even so, this series is packed with enough of the serious sergeant's antics that will leave you rolling on the floor with laughter.

The downside, as with all ADV releases, is that you don't get many episodes for your buck (there are only 3 on the first DVD). The only special features are the design sketches and some background information on the scenes and episodes that weren't included in the original television airing in Japan but are included in the DVD.

Even so, this is a great series that you can watch shamelessly with people who aren't into anime at all.

Format: DVD
This series is funny and even makes fun of other anime, volume makes fun of "You're Under Arrest", a poke at Indiana Jones (guy swings blade around, Sousuke just shoots him), bullet-time dodging, and brilliant use of military gear (episode 1, Ghillie Suit, for those of you who know what it is). I heard that this series had focused on the school comedy, and I thought it wouldn't be that great, as I enjoyed the first for it's combat, but I was wrong. Hilariously wrong. The directors chose the stories in the manga that used the explosives, running from police, grenade launchers, and Sousuke's favorite Glock 26.

Fumoffu, can actually be placed early in between in the original series, as both were taken from the manga. One focuses on the serious action plot, while fumoffu shows "daily" life in school. The directors wanted to focus on the comedic romance, rather than only the action (which made the first one convoluted as soon as they introduced the Lambda driver). I'd recommend both, and the manga itself, to see where it came from. This series has the destruction, comedy, but sadly no Armed Slave, but one funky lookin' mascot.

This anime series is a wonderful production featuring the characters from Full Metal Panic in a completely independent storyline. I recommend seeing this series even if you have never seen the original. The general idea of the show is Sosuke is works in a special operations branch that is currently interested in protecting Kaname. However, for all of Sosuke's training, his skills in warfare and gun use will not solve every social problem he encounters. This does not stop Sosuke in the least. Definately the best love comedy ever.

Furthermore, the authors of this Dvd's have included 2 of the unaired episodes in this dvd, but they have appeneded them to episodes 1 and 2.
