Editorial Reviews

The complete series digitally remastered!

It’s tough to keep your grades up without having to take off at a moment’s notice to save the world. But for Sousuke Sagara, undercover high school student and member of the mercenary group Mithril, life in Tokyo seemed the same as always. But underneath the promising exterior spin the wheels of a conspiracy that threaten to destroy the peace. A new threat has arisen: Amalgam. An unknown element with advanced mech technology, this mysterious organization has been running things from behind the scenes. As dissension spreads throughout the ranks of Mithril, Sousuke faces his own internal struggle. Spread thin between schoolwork and war, the powers that be have decided to lighten his load… beginning with Kaname! Life and death hang in the balance as the clash between good and evil scale new heights. When the smoke clears, Sousuke’s path will be the one that he forges for himself.

Funimation has taken one of its most well respected mecha franchises and decided to give it digital remastering treatment for an upcoming Complete Series box set release.

Coming in at a total runtime of 320 minutes, Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TSR) The Complete Series spans 3-discs packaged in a pair of thin packs within a nice cardboard outer slipcase. As with the previous release, the set comes complete with the TSR OVA, Episode 000, 7-part featurette (scouting in Hong Kong), textless songs and a crop of Funimation anime trailers.

Language options are quite thorough with English (Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround or original broadcast Stereo) and Japanese (Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround or original broadcast Stereo) with the option of running English subtitles below either language track choice.

The program wears an appropriate TV 14 rating due to some violent sequences, themes of conflict, and a bit of non-suggestive female (incestual) nudity.

In my opinion the mark of a solid piece of sequel anime is a show's ability to not only present new material but to also seamlessly intertwine it with the plot of the original. Enter Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TSR) from anime master workers, Funimation. This gorgeous set represents the proper formula for improving upon the season before it (which just so happens to be the first of the series) without pulling the story off onto an unrelated tangent.

The Second Raid follows the exploits of mercenary soldier Sousuke Sagara who, right from the beginning, does an adequate job of fulfilling his undercover mission as a regular high school student.

This review assumes you have already watched Full Metal Panic! season one.
The Second Raid (TSR) is characterised by violence and strong language. The enemies are crazier and deadlier, the Arm Slave action better and the Chidori-Sagara relationship cools a little. The upper echelons of Mithril play a strong part in the plot, which is unfortunate because several more seasons would be required to reveal what could be going on there. Tessa's brother plays a teaser role, again unfortunate because he obviously needs a full season on his own.
This season feels like the Empire Strikes Back of a trilogy. Dark, brutal, violent, it is excellent in its own right: but it requires at least another season to follow it.

TSR follows on reasonably directly from FMP season one. The Fumoffu! season can be seen as a comic relief interlude, and fits between the two.

If you had a problem or just never cared for the comedy in the first two series then this series makes up for that with a more serious look at the fact that Kaname is in real danger and that is the reason Sousuke is there to protect her. Also reminds us that Sousuke is a human being who does care just doesn't know how to show it most of the time.

This release comes with some nice extras. The best being "A Relatively Leisurely Day in the Life of a Fleet Captain" OVA which has everything a fan could want, some fan service, everyone's favorite captain, and a closet otaku. Among the rest of the extras are location shooting/interviews while in Hong Kong.

This is only brought down by the fact that it could have and maybe should have been longer. Also leaves you wanting much more at the end, this worries me because its been 5 years and no news of another season has surfaced. Always keep hope though.

FMP TSR is the 3rd season of FMP. It follows FMP, and FMP Fumoffu. The animation quality is way better in this season than in the previous 2. All of the characters return and so do the Arm Slaves. The AS's are even more awesome in TSR. The voice actors are all the same and the music is still great. My only complaint is that the ending leaves you hanging really bad. It pretty much ends with all sorts of bad guys ready to pounce and the team of the TDD ready to take them on. I loved this series but was very disappointed by the ending. Ive been waiting for them to end it for years, but no luck. I still have hope though. Even though it's not resolved this anime is incredible. You should definitely give it a look see.

I already had the first release of this entertaining series but like some people have said the video and audio did have some flaws with that set and after hearing about this set was very interested but was still undecided on if I really should purchase it. After finally deciding to acquire the remastered set I see it was definitely the right choice, the frame rate clears a lot of the scenes up to a greater clarity especially with the background and the lip-synch movements of the characters during scenes and the audio has been greatly touched up as well. During fight scenes with the original set the sound was still great but the sounds would reverb to much in some scenes, and sometimes you would hear volume fluctuations like when a character was talking their voice would be normal volume than sometimes lower for no apparent reason, with this set the battle scenes have been greatly improved and you can hear some added background effects too and the volume level is kept at a steady leveled rate or raising or lowering of the volume for unknown reasons. If you already have the first original set and are worried if this set doesn't have the added features than no worries this set has the whole bonuses that the first set had as well, the series episodes come on two of the dvds and the bonus features as well as the two extras OVA episodes come on the third dvd in the set. So for any fan of the Full Metal Panic series those who have the first FMP:Second raid set and looking for a incredible upgrade or just those who are looking for a great series in general here's a set worth your home anime collection today....
