Synopsis

It's back-to-school mayhem with Kaname Chidori and her war-freak classmate Sousuke Sagara as they encounter more misadventures in and out of Jindai High School. But when Kaname gets into some serious trouble, Sousuke takes the guise of Bonta-kun—the gun-wielding, butt-kicking mascot. And while he struggles to continue living as a normal teenager, Sousuke also has to deal with protecting his superior officer Teletha Testarossa, who has decided to take a vacation from Mithril and spend a couple of weeks as his and Kaname's classmate.

Okay, first things first. One: If you haven't watched the original Full Metal Panic! series, watch it beforehand. Knowing the characters *will* make the humor better. Two, if you didn't like the part of the original series that was about Sosuke and Chidori's everything but normal high school life, turn around, because that's all Fumoffu is about. Okay, let's get to reviewing.

The story in Fumoffu follows, as mentioned, Chidori and Sosuke's wacky high school life, and has none of the mecha aspects that FMP! had. This means that there is room for tons of comedy - given that you liked that part of FMP! read more

After watching all the FMP seasons I have to say that, without a doubt, Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu is the best one. FMP F are just spin-offs, side stories that take place right after the first Full Metal Panic! and before Second Raid season. If you are looking for a good laugh this is definitely one of the best options around.

Does this anime really have a story? Almost every episode is divided in two sub-episodes parts, that equals two stories per episode. Mostly one has nothing to do with the other episodes. Now if Fumoffu doesn't have a story why is so good? Easy: in read more

[b]FMP? Fumoffu[/b]
This is totally different from the real stories, this is like a spin off, one that is aimed to be full comedy without an specific storyline and i got to point out this is much better than the original and the Second Raid and much more enjoyable than both combined.

[b][u]Story[/u][/b]
Well there's no actual linear storyline but more like episodic stories in which every episode has two funny ''stories'' or daily life moments in which Sousuke finds himself and other ones in trouble triggering funny moments, that's it, expect to laugh a lot and Chidori this time has justification for her violence towards Sousuke and read more

If you are not aware already, Full Metal Panic Fumoffu is a spin off of the more serious Full Metal Panic. It seems to be set in point somewhere halfway through the series. Unlike its big brother, it contains no arm slave battles and only a few hostage situations. Instead it focuses on the high school lives of Souske and Chidori and is overall very lighthearted.
Full Metal Panic Fumoffu is probably the funniest anime I have ever seen. It routinely places Souske\'s vast military expertise and relatively little common sense into the spotlight. This show is filled with explosions, rubber bullets and misunderstandings. No matter read more

Anime: School Rumble
Two of the funniest anime in existence. And, perhaps coincidentally, the only two anime that spring to mind where the 'half-episode' mark often meant a different short story/chapter. You know how those other unfunny anime drag-on for the full episode run-time... despite being unfunny? These two don't. Clearly, 10-minutes is the best for animated comedy silliness.

Anime: Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu
They are both comedy and they both have characters with "strange" qualities... such as Sousuke having the military thing and Haruhi having the alien, esper, time-traveller thing. They are both hilarious with some romance added in. 
reportRecommended by Xalengurth
Anime: Seto no Hanayome
I couldn't help but remember Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu when I started watching Seto no Hanayome. Both are high-school romance comedy in which everything is allowed to go crazy. Both anime are fun, random, and hilarious.

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
If you're looking for some nonsense fun, here you have two great series to pick: Azumanga Daioh makes you laugh like there's no tomorrow, and Fumoffu is not that fun, but it has weapons and more action. 
reportRecommended by Superman
Anime: Kamen no Maid Guy
If you're looking for laughs in almost every episode as the main characters go through every-day life, then watch both these series. 
reportRecommended by redDX
Anime: Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi
Both shows are just plain-old funny, and use a lot of slapstick humor in a school setting.
