Product Description

FULL METAL PANIC:MISSION 3 - DVD Movie

Amazon.com

Director Koichi Chigira cranks up the action and the comedy as a new enemy appears in this rambunctious adventure. The terrorist cell A21 has a murderous pawn in Takuma, who uses the mysterious Lambda Drive to control a gargantuan crimson mecha. Sousuke defeats him in a dynamic duel, aided by Kaname and Commander Teletha "Tess" Testarossa. But the effects-laden battle is just a prelude to a more subtle but more dangerous conflict: Tess announces she's fallen for Sgt. Sousuke, and "may the best girl win!" Fortunately, Sousuke is too dense to notice. Assertive, independent, and capable of initiating action, Kaname represents new breed of magical girl. She never whines, the way Hitomi does in Escaflowne, and she's quite capable of braining Sousuke when he sticks his foot in it for the umpteenth time. The result is an imaginative, high-spirited entertainment. (Rated 15 and older: violence, brief nudity, risqué humor) --Charles Solomon

Up until now, "Full Metal Panic" has eased its story along with a predictable progression: a secret organization known as MITHRIL has assigned its top three agents to guard 16-year-old Chidori Kaname, a student at Jindai High School unknowingly blessed with the abilities of a Whispered, beings with an innate knowledge of Black Technology. With terrorists all over the world eager to capture and exploit her abilities, MITHRIL's Sagara Sousuke, also 16, but a hardened veteran of numerous wars in the Middle East, has joined Jindai as a student, his various military ticks often showing up and making him seem quite the strange guy.
Following the revelations of the previous volume is a set of four episodes that seem to go off on a tangent from the MITHRIL-versus-Terrorists dynamic of "Full Metal Panic." "Mission 03" starts out with a teen named Takuma Kaguyama fidgeting nervously at the airport as the security guard's slightly askew necktie bothers him immensely. He jumps the guard to fix it and is arrested; MITHRIL jumps in quickly to grab him as they know his obsessive-compulsive ticks are manifestations of a greater power. The group doesn't count on the intervention of A21, Takuma's group, headed by his sister Senia. During the raid, MITHRIL captain Tessa Testarossa manages to escape with Takuma in tow, at the cost of second-in-command Andrei Karinin's sacrifice. Gravely injured, the old war veteran is taken to A21 headquarters, a ship oddly-named the "George Clinton." He develops a strange, respectful-yet-antagonistic relationship with Senia. Meanwhile, Tessa finds her way to Sousuke's apartment with Takuma, setting up an awkward situation when Chidori drops by to find Tessa fresh out of the shower.

Well, I'll have to say, I haven't been this impressed since I saw the Vision of Escaflowne. I love Sousuke!!! I really like Chidori, too! She really is a real character, and she reminds me of one of the greatest heroine (who, by the way, doesn't whine!) Hitomi, from Escaflowne! This is definately a must buy! Visual is great, and Kudos on the awesome soundtrack! Look for the second series Fumoffu!

FMP is the story of Kaname and the Mercenary Sousuke. Kaname is a high school student that holds the key to black technology. An advanced form of technology used in military applications. Sousuke is a mercenary assigned to guard her. The problem is that he has been fighting battles since he was a young boy, and he has no common sense or social skills. He is always causing trouble for her, but he's the best candidate to keep her safe. The story follows their adventures from their high school all the way to the battlefield and back again.

FMP has everything you could want out of an anime series. Action, comedy, drama, sci-fi, and a bit of romance. The animation, story, and soundtrack are all awesome. It's a 5 star series in every possible aspect. It also stars the best voice actors in the business. I have always loved this series and I hope you do too.
