Seventeen-year-old Sousuke Sagara, a sergeant working for Mithril, has been assigned to protect Kaname Chidori, a Whispered candidate. He is ordered to join her high school class and be as close to her as possible to prevent her from falling into enemy hands—that is, if he can safely blend in with their fellow classmates without revealing his true identity.
Sousuke, who was raised on a battlefield and has very little knowledge of an average high school student’s lifestyle, must adapt to a normal school life to safeguard Kaname.
Sousuke is about to find out that the adversary coming for the Whispered girl may be a lot more familiar than he expects.
I thought Full Metal Panic Fumoffu was actually quite good though a few friends disliked it but I liked it. Not as action orientated as the first series as this is more focused on school life, personal lives and comedy.
Throughout the Full Metal Panic franchise I liked the relationship between Sousuke and Kaname but it didn’t neglect at least too much Sousuke’s buddies from MITHRIL.
Also it adds new characters from Jindai High School where Sousuke and Kaname are students at and it expands more on the students and faculty at Jindai High School.
Overall Full Metal Panic Fumoffu is a fun series despite its lack of action.
