''Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu'' is a SliceOfLife TwelveEpisodeAnime spun off of ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', in which Sōsuke Sagara, MilitaryBrat and bodyguard to Kaname Chidori, tries to adjust to life at Jindai High School.

The show was animated by KyotoAnimation, and is less of a sequel to ''Full Metal Panic!'' than a LighterAndSofter series of side-stories (hence the [[QuestioningTitle question mark in the title]]). Though lacking mecha action, there are still more explosions than usual for a high school anime.
----
!!''Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu'' provides examples of:
* AbandonedHospital: Kaname takes Sousuke through one, which he treats as not much different than a bombed out building in a warzone.
* AccidentalPervert: Happens to Mardukas in episode 8. He accidentally opens a door to a girl's locker room, then excuses himself immediately, but a rumor of a pervert running around the school causes Sōsuke to apprehend him. HilarityEnsues after Sōsuke realizes who it is, and the mission Mardukas has for him, which adds more difficulty to a sleep-deprived Sōsuke.
* AdultFear: Played with in the WhatDoTheyFearEpisode, in which Sousuke is shown to be completely unfazed by haunted hospitals, ghosts, horrific screams, and spooky children with hammers, thanks to having grown up in a war zone... but he ''is'' afraid when he thinks that Kaname died or was injured falling through the floor.
* AnAesop: Parodied in the legendary rugby episode. After witnessing a group of [[TookALevelInBadass total wimps turned psychopathic]] [[CurbStompBattle beat the shit out of]] the OpposingSportsTeam, Sosuke ([[DrillSergeantNasty the one who MADE them psycho]]) muses that his time with the team taught him that violence is the worst possible outcome for any situation. Then Kaname [[DopeSlap smacks him]] with [[PaperFanOfDoom her fan]] and says "Don't go trying to give this a neat little conclusion!"
* AngstComa: PlayedForLaughs after Sosuke goes without sleep for four days straight and Tessa's persistent advances finally cause him to collapse.
* AxeCrazy: [[{{Irony}} The policewoman is actually this]].
** The Jindai Rugby Team, post TrainingFromHell.
* BadassAdorable: The Bonta-Kun costume when Sosuke is piloting it. It combines the mascot's cuteness with Sosuke's badassery.
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Non-combat example. Some punks kidnapped Kaname and tried to use her as a hostage. Sousuke countered it with not only taking their Boss' brother as a hostage but also showing that he knew an awful lot [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes about each of the punks]], and pointed out how [[AdultFear their precious people or belongings could suffer an unfortunate 'accident']] if they don't release Kaname. Even if PlayedForLaughs it is a rather chilling scene.
* BedMateReveal: Tessa likes to sneak into Sōsuke's bed, to the point where Mao handcuffs her to prevent it.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Pretty much defines Sōsuke's and Kaname's relationship in the series, mostly from the combination of Sousuke's inability to understand feelings and Kaname being {{Tsundere}}.
* BerserkButton: Mr. Onugi the janitor is infinitely patient and kind, until you kill his pet koi. [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Then he really isn't himself anymore]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: The janitor in episode 5. After Sosuke and Issei's competition result in him getting injured, they are ordered to take care of him. However, both go completely overboard in their attempts to win his favor, and cause even more problems. After they finally work together, they feed him a fish, and when they explain where they caught it, the janitor finally loses it, and goes ChainsawGood on them. Despite Issei's attempts to fight him, and Sosuke both shooting and lobbing grenades, neither one is able to stop him.
-->'''Sosuke''': (The next morning): Live ammo has no effect on this guy...
* BootCampEpisode: Sōsuke organizes a boot camp on two occasions, playing the DrillSergeantNasty in it.
* BrickJoke: Near the start of episode 10, Sosuke laments that although he modified and mass-produced the Bonta-kun costume he used earlier into a powerful weapon, he had little luck finding buyers, as only the FBI and Miami police force ended up buying some. At the end of the episode, we see a news report from Miami, stating that a large-scale drug dealing operation was exposed and put a stop to, thanks to the Bonta-kun costumes they bought.
* CatSmile: Tessa displays one briefly when trying to sneak into Sōsuke's bed again in episode 9, right before Mao grabs her and handcuffs her.
* ClusterFBomb: You believe that Sōsuke's outburst when defeating Gauron was bad? Then here's a little example...
-->'''Sōsuke''': Right now you guys are less than human, you got that?! You're nameless slaves! Once you survive my training, then and only then will you become a weapon! Until that time you lowly maggots are nothing but a bunch of [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]]suckers! I despise and look down upon you. Let's make one thing clear: my job is to find the limp [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] among you and weed them out! I won't have any stinking [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] on our team keeping us from victory! There will be no laughing or crying. You are NOT human beings! You are KILLING MACHINES! If you couldn't kill, your lives will be worthless! You [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] would be better off in a corner [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] your meat! You want to lose on purpose just to stand out? Pretend it hurts to gain some sympathy?! You pathetic loser scum! The best part of you ran down the crack of your mother's [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] and ended up as a [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] stain on the mattress! Quit draggin' your feet, you [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]]! If you whimper, I will unscrew your head and [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] down your neck! That ball is your only girlfriend! You don't need a Mary Jane [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] with a large backside! Think of your ball as a wet [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] and [[[SoundEffectBleep censored]]] her as hard as you can!
** Of course he got it from "Mao's Pocketbook: How To Abuse A Training Recruit" (Mao, in turn, seems to have gotten it from [[Film/FullMetalJacket Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann]]). Kaname speculates that he doesn't even know the actual meaning of what he's saying.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Mizuki's 3 friends who visit have ColorfulThemeNaming for red, yellow, and green, and each of them wears the same color. Kaname [[LampshadeHanging even comments that they're colored like a street light.]]
* ColorFailure: Kaname in one episode, upon finding out that Sosuke was ready to beat her kidnappers at their own game.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In one episode, Kaname takes Sōsuke through an AbandonedHospital. While her intention was to scare him, he's more worried about possible traps and ambushes. When one of the girls gets scared and runs away because she saw an old lady staring at them from the hospital, Sōsuke nonchalantly mentions seeing her too, freaking out Kaname. But he wasn't worried because the old lady was simply looking at them, and didn't have a gun or RPG, the first of many frustrations as she tries to scare him.
* TheComicallySerious: Hayashimizu and Sousuke
* CrazyPrepared: When Sōsuke is faced with a hand-to-hand combat with 3 karate fighters, he subdues the first one with a non-lethal projectile from a gun, the second one (after explained he can't use guns) with some sort of gas and for the third one (after [[PaperFanOfDoom being beaten]] by Kaname) he used a hand grenade as a decoy to bring him down.
** Also, in the first episode, Sōsuke is asked to lay off all his weapons. Clang! Clink! Clang! and next shot from the camera shows him standing next to a heap of weapons almost half his size. (Including several grenades and a Bazooka).
* CryCute: Tessa looks so adorable after she [[{{Dojikko}} trips]] and drops a glass in the beginning of episode 9.
* CulturalCrossReference: There's a couple in episode 3, "Summer Illusion of Steel":
** The scene where Sousuke confronts the [[KnifeNut knife-wielding cook]] is a homage to ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.
** The chauffeur Washio is strikingly similar to Oddjob from ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', from his attire right down to his combat style, including his signature bowler hat throw. He also dodges a grenade with a slow motion Matrix-style backflip.
* CuteAndPsycho: Yoko Wakana is a beautiful and pretty cute young policewoman, but she also happens to be batshit insane.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Tessa, when she visits Sōsuke's class. ("She's so cute!")
* ExactWords: Sousuke really abuses this when he fights the karate club.
* ExtendedDisarming: He has on his body enough weapons to arm a battalion. See also GunNut below.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: At the start of episode 6, Sosuke informs Kaname that Kyoko was attacked by a pervert. However, while said pervert only tied her hair in a ponytail before letting her go, Sosuke unintentionally made it sound like she had gone through ''worse'' things. Kaname is quick to DopeSlap Sosuke for scaring her like that.
* FeudEpisode: Two episodes are variations, where Kaname being mad at Sosuke (but not the other way around) make up the bulk of the scenario. Of course, both times, everything turns out well in the end.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: The rugby team started off as a bunch of prissy, tea-drinking, animal loving sissy boys on such a bad losing streak they are in danger of being disbanded by the school board. [[TrainingFromHell Three days with Sosuke]] turns them into [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast 'Futako Tamagawa's Nightmare']].
* GunNut: Sōsuke, with LampshadeHanging:
--> '''Sōsuke''': ''(upon dropping all his weapons)'' I've complied to your demand.\\
'''Akutsu''': ''Where the hell did you keep all that?!''
* GroinAttack: Sōsuke repeatedly stomped on a man's groin while he was down and gave another 4 successive punches there.
** He's also on the receiving end of one when Kazama accidentally headbutts him there in the HotSpringsEpisode. He doesn't react at all.
* HeroStoleMyBike: Kaname and Sōsuke steal a bike in order to get back to school in time for their test. HilarityEnsues when a crazy policewoman tries to pull them over, leading to a ChaseScene that results in her crashing her squad car. Which then explodes.
* HeManWomanHater: Tsubaki [[spoiler: until he puts his glasses on]]
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Sōsuke. Without any personality adjustments, just removing all the mecha fights or serious drama, his behaviour goes from 'FishOutOfWater' to 'Hilariously Over-The-Top Lunatic'.
* HeyCatch: Sōsuke does one with a grenade [[spoiler: with the pin still in]] to beat one of the karate team members.
* HostageSituation: Sōsuke imagines one in the 3rd episode. Ironically, Sousuke's vision in that episode is the only time in the anime when Kaname is kidnapped on screen (although she is kidnapped offscreen in other episodes).
* HotSpringsEpisode: Episode 9, complete with the antics of Kurz Weber, [[spoiler: where he desperately attempts to peep within the girl's bathhouses.]] Although his plans are foiled each time by Sōsuke.
* HyperspaceArsenal: Sōsuke has a lot of this.
* {{I Am Not Left Handed}}: Both Sosuke and Tsubaki claim they both weren't fighting full power during their fight. Sosuke was weighed down by weapons, and Tsubaki wasn't wearing his glasses.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Except for the first segment of episode 1 and the "Megami no Rainichi" double episode, every episode segment is titled as "[Japanese phrase] [English word in katakana]".
* InsultBackfire: When Sousuke is training the Yakuza thugs, we have the following exchange:
-->'''Sousuke (in Bonta Kun):''' "You're acting like street thugs.
-->'''Gang member:''' "We ''are'' street thugs."
* InTouchWithHisFeminineSide: The ''entire rugby club,'' [[TrainingFromHell until Sousuke shapes them up.]]
* IntimidationDemonstration: In the episode "Summer Illusion of Steel", Sameshima the cook runs up to Sōsuke with a knife in each hand, and starts twirling them around. He then switches over to rapidly slicing them through the air while stating his reputation as "Sammy the Slasher". It pays homage to ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', though, as [[spoiler: Sōsuke just shoots him.]]
* KillerRabbit: After Sousuke stole a Bonta-kun costume to hide his identity while he saved Kaname from some yakuza who harassed her, he kept it, modified it for combat purposes, and mass-produced it. The end result was an adorable suit of PoweredArmor, strong enough to turn a bunch of wimps into capable soldiers. This is best seen when Kaname and Ren are kidnapped by a rival yakuza group: Sousuke teams up with the other group (ironically, the one he beat up earlier) to save them, and thoroughly kicks their asses.
* MustNotDieAVirgin: Mizuki tries this on Issei, and Kaname also mistakes Sousuke's behavior for this. She should know better at this point...
* MsFanservice: In the seventh episode, next-episode teaser, Kaname accuses the show of using Tessa for fanservice.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Played straight until it's subverted, when Kaname has full knowledge on how [[ChasteHero incapable]] Sōsuke is on acting on anything even remotely connected to sex.
* TheNudifier: A clothes-eating bacteria.
* OneDialogueTwoConversations: After Sosuke nearly drowns in the school pool, Tessa says she's going to perform CPR on him, saying that they have a special relationship due to being ChildhoodFriends, as [[LockedOutOfTheLoop her cover story]] to the other students. After Sosuke recovers on his own, the other students ask him if he has a "special relationship" with Tessa. Since he can't [[SecretKeeper expose his or Tessa's real identities]], and he thinks they're referring to his military relationship as her subordinate, he verifies it. Much {{Squee}}ing ensues from them, while [[ClingyJealousGirl Kaname]] storms off, telling a confused Sosuke to talk to Tessa, since they have a "special relationship".
* OpposingSportsTeam: The Garasuyama Rugby Club; they're classically big, intimidating, aggressive, and arrogant.
* {{Pixellation}}: Used in a gag to hide the contents of a gory package.
** Another to hide what looks like a rape scene (actually tickling with feathers).
* {{The Rival}}: Sosuke to Tsubaki, Tessa to Kaname, and Bonta-kun to the policewoman.
* RugbyIsSlaughter: Particularly when the team is being coached by Sosuke.
* SequentialSymptomSyndrome: Sousuke describes the effects of the trap he set as it shows the coach who set them off with the symptoms.
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: After Kaname is kidnapped by a street gang, Sousuke kidnaps the leader's little brother in turn and dangles him over them, threatening to drop him. To keep the other gang members from doing anything, he addresses each of them in turn by name, saying it would be a shame if their sister/girlfriend/sickly mother/lovebird/bike was to meet an...unfortunate fate. This thoroughly freaks out the gang members, who all run away in fear, leaving the leader, Kaname, and the brother [[spoiler: who was in on the whole thing: Sousuke had bribed him to go along with it with a promise of an RC car]]
* ShirtlessScene: One scene stands out. Sōsuke has just gone 4 days without sleeping due to schoolwork and his job and driven over the edge. Before passing out, he ponders on why he has to suffer like this. For ''no reason at all'', during the internal monologue, it shows a [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sousuke_FANSERVICE.jpg picture of Sousuke shirtless in a pose that would have any of his admirers absolutely screaming]].
** The reason for the odd position was most likely because Sousuke (subconsciously) associated Tessa's behaviour with torture (well, emotionally, it sort of was). The stripping and tying upside down is a common procedure of putting the tortured person in a position of vulnerability before any sort of pain is involved. Honestly, it's a classic scene in all books that depict war and/or espionage.
* ShoutOut: In episode 11, the enraged model club member refers to the woman who insulted him as a [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Perfect Grade]] bitch.
** In the hot spring episode, Kazuma's seen going [[Anime/GundamSEED SEED mode]]
* SlasherSmile: The policewoman has one to make the Joker proud, whenever she gets caught up in the chase.
* SleepCute: Non-romantic example: after some time spent in hot springs, Kaname and Tessa sleep side-by-side on the way back. It's as adorable as it sounds.
* SpitTake: As Kaname is talking with Ms. Wakana to apprehend a molester, the young policewoman mentions how she was demoted after she made her police car explode while chasing after some tough high-schoolers on a bike. Cue Kaname spitting her coffee, realizing she and Sosuke were those very high-schoolers;
* SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: Ms Yoko Wakana.
* TakeOffYourClothes: In the last episode, after a seemingly deadly virus spread to the school, Sōsuke drags Kaname to the infirmary and asks her to take off her clothes. Kaname reacts all flustered, believing he [[MustNotDieAVirgin wants to make love to her before they die]]. But Sōsuke learned that the "virus" only attacks synthetic fibers, including clothes, and he's just asking her to undress to save her school uniform before it'd disintegrate.
* TheThingThatGoesDoink: Seen quite prominently at the Yakuza home of Mikihara. Also heard several times in the HotSpringsEpisode.
* TrainingFromHell: Sōsuke inflicts this upon Jindai High's rugby team, [[HilarityEnsues with hilarious results]].
* TranslationConvention: Episode 2 in the English dub renders Ancient Japanese as Old English, as a similarly incomprehensible language for Sousuke and the viewer.
** And then there's the council chairman's translation of gangsta-speak. [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch Biatch]].
* TwoShorts: Zigzagged. Some episodes are full-length, but most of them are comprised of two shorter episodes.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Kaname's Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex Hold.
