Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid


After having FMP: The 2nd raid on my HD for months and months. I finally started it during my Winter break, and trudged through the first 7 or so episodes before it finally got interesting! Well I have to say TSR wasn’t as good as the first season (which also had equal seriousness) and of course Fumoffu! Kicked ass being the comedy fan I am πŸ˜€ The beginning of TSR was slow going and lacked direction, we were shown battles and figths without knowing what’s going on. There wasn’t much Chidori-Sousuke development, their romance was lingering in teh air but not quite there (even towards the end it was still up in the air)

TSR follows on where it left off in season 1 (with I think Fumoffu somewhere in between) and introduced a new organisation and new characters. I really like Gate‘s seiyuu, well done by Houchu Ohtsuka (who imfomously voices as Jiraya in Naruto)

Sousuke andChidori

Kyoto Animation certainly did a good job with animation quality. I love watching the widescreen resolution on my new plasma ^^ It was great for action. The coloring and backgrounds etc. were all really well done. High standard for a regular season anime. The seiyuu as usual did a brilliant job in their portrayal. Tessa, Sousuke, Chidori and Gate’s seiyuu’s all did a fantastic job. The action sequences and drama was well done. The BGM was also well adapted, the excitement, the humour and the drama.

I liked it how they delved into a bit more of the history of Mithril, but I’m still curious about quite a few characters in the show, for example the leader of Mithril (seems like a nice old man), Tessa’s brother, the female who was under a disguise but ended up helping Chidori to find Sousuke and giving him the motivation to properly use his Lamda Driver. So I’m guessing a 4th season will be out sometime (possibly the last season) to tie up the lose ends like what’s Tessa’s brother doing working for an anti-mithril organisation and what will happen to the Tessa-Sousuke-Chidori love triangle!

Death note in FMP!

On a side note (found in wikipedia) Kyoto Animation inserted this little scene in TSR which gave people the impression that they instead of Madhosue was going to produce Deathnote. Β 

Rather than me going into a blow by blow rundown of the series wikipedia did a pretty good detailed summary of the show. I’d give the show an overall 7.5/10.

    You will agree that communication and correspondence has grown to be essential today. If a paper fails a plagiarism check, all students can count over a failing grade and probably additional consequences. http://tinyurl.com/o83sz38
