5.0 out of 5 stars Great series!, 13 April 2008
This review is from: Full Metal Panic - Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I've never really liked mecha anime, they're just a bit tacky to me, especially when most of the time they look like something out of power rangers. This series though is actually pretty good, as the mechs (called Arm Slaves) in this are cool. The action is obviously sometimes over the top (this is anime), but it's just done better than Gundam and the like. In my opinion away.
The series starts off quite funny, when Sauske tries acting like a high school student so he can protect Kaname. As the series goes on it does get more serious, like most anime series do. Good story, great animation, and likeable characters, that all have their funny moments. The music isn't really to my taste but not many anime do have music I actually like, it's usually the typical Japanese cheese rock in most of them.
Overall an awesome series, it's just a joy to sit through and offers some great entertainment. I was torn between giving this 4 or 5 stars, but I think it's good enough to get 5. Highly recommended, and not just for mecha fans!
