Full Metal Panic back to reviews

Amazing. Just Amazing.
Full Metal Panic is possibly the beat show I have ever watched. It offers an engaging storyline, lovable protagonists, and a wonderfully, wonderfully depraved villain. The romance between Sousuke and Kaname is handled with great tact, and the subtle progress they make in their relationship will have the viewer on the edge of their seat, wondering when they'll get together. Gauron is a memorable, if disgusting, villain, who's creepy attachment to Sousuke will make you cringe at his warped idea of love, which serves as a stark contrast to the purer, chaste love that the protagonists share. He may not have any real motivation for his actions, but dang it if he isn't fun to watch. It is this obsessive love for the protagonist that defines Gauron's character. Viewers will doubtless be horrified by his depravity and cruelty, perhaps even outright insanity. And the guy just. Won't. Die. It is very entertaining. The action scenes are fast-paced, thrilling, and enjoyable. The angst and drama are hair-tearingly painful, the humor will have you on the floor laughing, and the romantic scenes are completely heartwarming and 'aaaw' inducing. and, of course, there's the fanservice. While it is there, it is (usually) tastefully done, and not overused. Not the most family-friendly show out there, but certainly far from the worst. Anyone looking for a good series should give this a try. It's certainly worth it.

I'm sorry, but I can't help but laugh at this review. Are you serious? No show can ever meet any of these expectations, the romance of the show is laughable for the wrong reasons...hell, even if they were, how can there be "tasteful" fanservice?
