Kaname Chidori’s one of the most popular girls at her high school – unfortunately, it’s her growing popularity off campus she should be worrying about. Unbeknownst to Kaname, terrorists are plotting her abduction, believing she possesses the rare and coveted abilities of “the Whispered.”
That’s where Sousuke Sagara enters the picture. He’s a hotshot soldier from the clandestine counter-terrorist organization known as Mithril – and he’s going undercover at Kaname’s school to try and keep her safe. He may be an ace in the cockpit of an Arm Slave mech, but there’s no training in the world that could prepare him for the warzone of high school.

An important thing to note is that although this is described as "The Complete Series", Full Metal Panic! is actually 3 different series and this item only has the first one. The second and third (Fumoffu? and Second Raid respectively) are not included with this set. It's not a deliberately misleading thing, but if you were buying this and expecting all of the Full Metal Panic anime, you're going to be disappointed. Aside from that potential problem, it's a really fun series at a really reasonable price point and I definitely recommend it.
The series itself is very entertaining for any mecha or action anime fan as you'll get a good dose of both, the short basic storyline is you have people called "Whispered" who have innate knowledge of advanced sciences ranging from medical to weapons design and because of this there are a variety of groups who are seeking these unique individuals for their own shadowy agendas. One of these whispered is our main female character a spunky young japanese High school girl Kaname Chidori who is being targeted by two groups one of which our main male character Sousuke Sagara a young teenage boy and very skilled mercenary fighter is with is chosen to protect her from these nefarious people. The characters grow on you and the other cast members are all endearing in their own little way as well. The voice cast were great in their roles both the Japanese and English cast played their roles very well and the soundtrack fits the series too. So if you're a fan of series like Gundam or action animes or just a good show in general try checking this series out for your anime collection....
For the $20-30 it costs for a whole blu-ray show, that's not bad. And considering the future blu-ray packs are the same price, you can drop $60 on the entire blu-ray series - which isn't too shabby considering the price some of us paid for the whole thing when it was first released.
Video wise, it's fairly sharp. Keep in mind this season was animated when all broadcast TV's were still 4:3 screen ratio, and the blu-ray's keep this ratio. Granted they have been upscaled to fit the modern HDTV it still retains the 4:3 scale, so you'll have black bars on the left/right of your TV. This is a better choice than trying to stretch to widescreen and ruin it. I haven't watched the ADV release in years for a picture quality comparison, but considering I'm watching this on a 65" HDTV with very few instances of the images getting pixelated (and even then you won't notice unless you're looking for it), I'd say it's a win.
Audio is fairly typical, english 5.1 and japanese 2.0. Both use a surround system (if you have one) fairly well, as the audio has been touched up, but since it wasn't a theatre release, it doesn't fully utilize 5.1.
New or old fans, spending $25 on this box is a deal you can't go wrong with.
When the Mithril organization learns that an unsuspecting high school girl is being targeted they send one of their top guys to protect her there is only one problem... the man they've chosen may have a brilliant military mind, but he is completely socially inept. The series blends comedy, drama and action together with expert precision transitioning from comedy hijinks to dramatic dilemmas that culminate in amazing action sequences.
The animation is top notch, the characters are intriguing, the story is both hilarious and compelling with an excellent English dub making this series a must own for any anime fan and one of my favorite mecha animes!
