FULL METAL PANIC! MISSION 07
The terrorist Gauron has commandeered the Mithril submarine De Danaan, but the telepathic bond between Commander Tess and Kaname enables them to regain control of the powerful vessel. Sousuke leads the counterattack against the brutal pirates with some assistance from Kurz and Mao, and the struggle inevitably ends in a man-to-man duel between Sousuke and Gauron. Director Koichi Chigira pulls out all the stops in their mecha knife fight, which is played against some impressive CG special effects, including torpedoes exploding underwater and the De Danaan breaching like a humpback whale. To no one's surprise, things end happily, with Kaname and Sousuke finally recognizing and accepting their mutual attraction. The second season of this lively comedy-adventure, Full Metal Panic Fumoffu, has already aired in Japan, and will probably be released in the U.S. soon. (Rated 15 and older: violence, risqué humor, nudity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

The wholse series is quality. Great art, animation, and characters. The plot is wonderful, you'll love the characters, and laugh and cry through their antics and perils.
The series is paced very well with action and comdey coming in at appropriate time. Action usually consists of mech based combat, thankfully with few staredowns.
Highly recommend this anime. Also if you can get your hands on season 2 (Full metal Panic: Fumoffu which is a purely comedic series focusing on Souske and Chidori's school life.
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.
While volume 7 had its moments, especially the final duel between Sosouke and Gauron (doesn't he ever die?), the last dvd left me unsatisfied. Sosouke and Kaname, while coming close to revealing their true feelings for each other, never get romantic. They tell each other they need each other but that's about it, I guess setting up the sequel series that will be coming out in the future, in which they are constantly bickering. I would have liked to have seen their relationship evolve a little. They're pretty much in the same place as they started. In fact, I don't feel as if ANY of the characters evolved over the course of the series. That's disappointing. Also, we didn't get anymore really relevant information on what the "Whispered" truly are or what their function is. Hopefully, the sequel series will not be just more of the same. Still, Full Metal Panic is a great entertainment. Just don't expect any surprises or deep insights.
Mission 07 starts where Mission 06 left off, right at episode 22 conveniently titled "Jack in the Box." In what is perhaps the climax of the series, Gauron (or Gaul) has taken over the "toy box" (name for the submarine in the Japanese version) threatening to destroy everything the main characters have fought to build. Kaname and the captain are held hostage, however Sagara and Kurz are still fighting, managing to avoid the lockdown procedures that Guaron has initiated. Will Kaname be able to escape? Will Sagara be able to save the sub, and most importantly, will he defeat Gauron? All of these questions, I promise, are answered fully and brilliantly in this final DVD.
While the relationship between Kaname and Sagara didn't end as well as I hoped, A.D. vision gives all of you who love the romance sideplot a little treat at the end, and I assure you that while the romance element doesn't end as well as the action element, it is still suitably ended. Once again the quality of the anime is well-drawn, well produced, and overall well-done. The color blending is stellar, and the acute sound and great music manages to make me like this show even more. This is a definite 5 outta 5, no questions asked.
