Fridge: Full Metal Panic!
  • Fridge Brilliance: It at first seems baffling that Sousuke's teachers wouldn't suspect his guns were real, until you realize that Japan has very strict weapon control laws. Seeing even just a handgun in real life is unthinkable for a Japanese civilian, to say nothing of the military-grade assault rifles that Sousuke was packing.
    • Sousuke's inability to realize the fuss about the Sacred First Kiss might appear strange until one realize that he grew up in Afghanistan, where kissing (between men) is simply a form of greeting with no romantic implications whatsoever. In episode 8, he even revealed that he had kissed men before during his time in the Middle East and Central Asia.
  • Fridge Horror: Pretty much all of Sousuke's Fish out of Water actions. Blowing up a locker that has been tampered with seems silly...until you realize that where he's from, that usually means there's a bomb inside.
