All That's Good About Anime
10 September 2011 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Plot: A young expert in warfare and 2 of his colleagues are given the mission of protecting a simple teenage school girl from terrorists but don't know the reason why.

You'll love Full Metal Panic! if: You want a great and balanced mixture of action, comedy and romance & wonderful characters and all these accompanied by very appealing visuals and great sound effects and music. FMP manages to give the viewer a little bit of everything that's good about anime in the right amounts and in great quality. The show starts as a very lighthearted comedy and slowly starts getting darker and with more battles. Speaking of battles FMP in one of my favorite mecha anime, a genre I usually detest due to the overall cheesiness involved. Here mechas look and feel like actual war machines and not toys that you operate with stupid voice commands (ala most mecha anime). The plot while simple and not groundbreaking keeps you interested because of the overall presentation and mystery involved, but most importantly FMP has excellent characters and beyond excellence character chemistry. Instead of the typical 2-d anime duos, (the geeky male and the short-tempered female), the characters have more than meets the eye in them and actually change throughout the series' episodes. All in all excellent blend of action, comedy, mystery, ecchi-nes, romance and character development.

You'll hate Full Metal Panic! if: You either want something "darker" or "lighter" OR with less genre variety OR more depth. FMP while great isn't the "deepest" anime there is out there. There is some well presented Sci-Fi and mystery here but don't expect "Ghost In The Shell". There is a lot of character development and action but don't expect "Cowboy Beebop". Finally if you want something that focuses heavily in the comedy aspect look elsewhere. FMP is an Action series with lots of decent laughs thrown in but not a 100% comedy. In the end the most important thing about this product is that it's a mixture of genres and some people that want something more specific won't appreciate it. Tastes are tastes…

FINAL VERDICT: A Cocktail Of All That's Good About Anime (7.7/10)

[+] Great blend of various genres. Wonderful main character chemistry. Great animation.

[-] A bit weak in terms of plot. Some may want to see something way darker or lighter.

Also Check: Cowboy Bebop (1998)- Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (2005) – Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)

P.S.: My purpose in all my IMDb Reviews is not to say "I like\don't like this movie" but to help you decide whether YOU will like it or not since everything is all about taste and expectations IMO...
