    After years of anti-terrorist skirmishes, special operative Sosuke Sagara has been assigned his toughest, most dangerous mission in his life: guarding a beutiful high-school girl named Kaname Chidori.

    Story: A-
    It's Gasaraki meets Love Hina as Full Metal Panic! mixes high-tech mecha action with romantic comedy.

    Animation: A-
    Look at GONZO's track record (Gate Keepers, Vandread) and you'll know that Full Metal Panic! is loaded with 2D and 3D eye candy. I would've given this title an A+ if not for the shoddy artwork on episode 4, though.

    Soundtrack: A
    Just listen to the opening theme "Tomorrow" by Mikuni Shimokawa and you'll be hooked.

    Cast
    Full Metal Panic! features Tomokazu Seki (Van Fanel in Escaflowne, Domon Kasshu in Mobile Fighter G-Gundam) as Sosuke, Satsuki Yukino (Kagome Higurashi in Inu-Yasha, Milly Thompson in Trigun) as Kaname, Shinichiro Miki (Allen Schezar in Escaflowne, Takumi Fujiwara in Initial D) as Kurz, Michiko Neya (Rally Vincent in Gunsmith Cats, Jun in Gatchaman '94) as Melissa, Yukana Nogami (Meiling Li in Card Captor Sakura, Yoko Shimorenjaku in 801 T.T.S. Airbats) as Theresa, Akio Otsuka (Anavel Gato in Mobile Suit Gundam 0083, Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid 1-2) as Kalinin, and Masahiko Tanaka as Gaul.

    The Bottom Line
    Despite some imperfections, Full Metal Panic! is, without a doubt, GONZO's best anime title to date.

    I have watched it up to eps 16, are there anymore?










    *** SPOILER BELOW ***
    It's strange tho, in one eposide he is fighting terrorist and almost dies, in another he is living the normal highschooler's life.

    I like it tho :)
