FULL METAL PANIC! MISSION 01
In this winning comedy-adventure, writer Shouji Gatou and director Koichi Chigira combine mecha battles, psychic abilities, and teen-age romance, infusing the mixture with a rambunctious comic energy reminiscent of Generator Gawl. High school student Kaname Chidori may be a "Whispered," an individual who possesses vast, untapped mental powers. The KGB and other sinister organizations want to capture individuals with those powers, so the anti-terrorist mercenary corps Mithril dispatches a mismatched trio of officers to protect Kaname: Melissa Mao, Sousuke Sagara, and Kurz Weber. Sousuke tries to blend in at Jindai High, but his military bearing, hair-trigger reflexes, and literal-mindedness get him into trouble with the teachers and Kaname. At a time when many anime series feel like variations on Evangelion and a few other prototypes, Full Metal Panic offers an upbeat, appealing originality. (Unrated: Suitable for ages 14 and older: violence, brief nudity, alcohol use, risqué humor) --Charles Solomon

Personally, I thought the first four episodes of this anime were decent, but nothing spectacular that's going to motivate me to buy the other 6 DVDs in the series. Read morePublished on July 22, 2004 by Lucas P.
