5.0 out of 5 stars WHOS PROTECTING WHO? 9 May 2005
By Sesho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Full Metal Panic Fumoffu is the sequel series to the original Full Metal Panic anime series in which Sousuke Sagara and some of his buddies from the anti-terrorist agency called Mithril were assigned to observe and protect Kaname Chidori. Kaname is one of the "Whispered", a person who unknowlingly carries classified military secrets in their memories. The original series never gave very much more info about it than that. Sousuke is sent into Kaname's high school posing as a fellow student.

Whereas the first series tried to strike a balance between Sousuke's combat missions and the humorous slapstick of high school life, sometimes with mixed results, Fumoffu focuses solely on the comedy bits at school. Sousuke doesn't have a clue as to how to live a normal teenager's life. He's been trained to kill since an early age. So, for example, when a secret admirer puts a love note in his shoe locker, Sousuke, noticing his locker has been tampered with, proceeds to place plastic explosive on his locker and detonate it. Another example of his approach to life is when him and the rest of the characters are playing a watermelon smashing game at the beach, he takes out a police riot shotgun and blows it away. And he also has no clue that Haname likes him. To him, romance is irrational and unknown. It's up to Haname to show him how to function in the real world beyond fighting mecha and covert ops.

Haname has her own problems though, whether its an obssessed voyeur, or Sousuke scaring the rest of the students with his handgun brandishing, but its nothing a punch, a hit with a fan, or a baseball bat beating can't solve. Another nice touch is that the class president sees all of Sousuke's antics as acceptable and perfectly normal, much to the consternation of Haname.

This is a really funny show. I always liked the characters but was a little put off by the melodrama that sometimes plagued the original series. All the peformances by the Japanese voice actors are heart-felt and very expressive, and have some really nice touches in the comedic moments. It is also animated extremely well, especially the frenzied homework episode where Haname and Sousuke are racing against the clock to retrieve some class notes. The preview of Volume 2 on this dvd shows that Fumoffu will get ever funnier. Highly recommended.

The dvd contains the standard character artwork, some background information about the series, openings and closings, and some Japanese TV spots.

I would recommend viewing the original series first, which has been recently collected in a boxed set. Also check out the manga. If you liked Fumoffu, you should also think about Azumanga Daioh in anime and manga versions for more high school comedy. Another funny show is Dokkoida.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great to see the FMP gang back together again! 13 Aug. 2008
By [KNDY] Dennis A. Amith - Published on Amazon.com

In 2002, "Full Metal Panic!" was a popular anime (based on the popular novel) from Gonzo Digimation that wowed animation fans with a unique story of life in high school.

Well, it's not the life that we are used to seeing in Japanese anime. Or life for Kaname Chidori since meeting Sosuke Sagara.

Unbeknownst to Kaname is that Sosuke is not your typical high school student. He's actually an elite soldier and Second Lieutenant of the Mithril special forces posing as a student.

Sosuke is purely all military and will do anything to do his job in protecting Kaname. Think of him as a one man army.

Unfortunately, he's a bit naive when it comes to high school life, romance and things that most high schoolers enjoy.

But for Kaname, this student is going through extremes of trying to help her (she doesn't know why, she thinks he's weird) but at the expense of the high school due to the destruction he causes.

In the "Full Metal Panic!" television series, we watch as Sosuke does whatever to protect Kaname from terrorists trying to kidnap her.

In 2003, the second television series titled "Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu" came out and it continues the zaniness of Sosuke and Kaname, as he continues to protect Kaname, misunderstand Kaname and cause plenty of damage.

Based on the popular manga series, Fumoffu is a different from the first television series. It continues to be more zany and also more comedy. Also, short episodes.

I watched the first DVD volume for the series and I can say that I enjoyed this anime immensely.

There are a total of 17 episodes and two were not shown in Japan due to sensitive content (child kidnappings) that were ongoing in Japan.

Therefore, viewers of the anime series may have been confused if they missed an episode or two.

Fortunately, for the DVD release, we get to see these two episodes.

In the first episode, a girl likes Sosuke and puts a note in his locker.

Unfortunately, Sosuke thinks that someone broke into his locker and thinks that she maybe a terrorist.

In the second part of this episode, a group of gang members want revenge on Sosuke, so they kidnap Kaname. But these gangsters have no idea who they are messing with.

In the second episode, Sosuke is causing trouble when he learns how difficult it is to get school lunch. So, in order to make sure he gets some pan (bread), he uses his gun as a way to let the students know that they should move out of the way.

Doing so, students begin rushing for safety and injures the school's bread suppliers. Thus, in order to provide the students their lunch, Sosuke, Kaname and friends have to distribute bread to the students.

Unbeknownst to them, an unsuspecting person will do whatever it takes to sabotage the bread to get Sosuke in trouble.

In the third episode, the group go to beach and Kaname tries to get Sosuke to notice her in a bikini. All Sosuke cares about is protecting her and ends up ruining her bikini by smashing watermelons on her.

Kaname in disgust, meets a rich child who wants to meet her and for Sosuke, he thinks she has been kidnapped.

So, far watching the first four episodes has truly been fun. I really enjoyed "Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu". I enjoyed the Japanese audio track but I have to let people know that the English dub was great!

The DVD is provided in 4:3 with the English track in 5.1 and Japanese track in 2.0.

Special features include a Bonta-kun board game, the mysteries of Fumoffu (an explanation of how they came up with the name), the clean opening and closing themes, the original Japanese TV spots and character artwork.

For fans of "Full Metal Panic!", you can't go wrong with Fumoffu. It's so awesome and definitely worth checking out!
