I started reading Full Metal Panic! already being a huge fan of it because I had watched the anime adaption of the series first. Also this is my first review so I hope you enjoy it.

With that being said lets get started with this review:

Story - 10/10

The story is that of a romantic comedy which is full of hilarious situations between a sergeant named Sousuke Sagara and a girl named Chidori Kaname. As the story progresses you get to witness not only their developing relationships, but you also get a bit mecha action as you get to see into the everyday life of Sergeant read more

"I don't have any regrets. I'm glad I met you" Is what our heroine Kaname Chidori has to say seems romantic ? Quite a lot.

So what we have here is an intense Romance and Comedy manga mixed with action and Mechas all over the place making it quite a nice read so looking closer we see a story of clueless guy and strong willed girl trying to survive seems nice but lets add Tons of comedy , deadly battles and drama here and there we would get an story line so Writer Gatoh, Shoji brought us an story with many turns here and there read more

User Recommendations

The male leads in both are unadjusted to normal life but find themselves living around those not accustomed to times of war. They swear to protect the respective heroines from all threats and hilarity ensues as their lack of understanding/common sense creates more problems than it solves.

FMP is aimed at males and, as a result, has MUCH more comedy in its romance than shoujo series Shinobi Life does. Only the early parts of SL are comparable, though - in fairness - FMP itself does go in a darker, more drama-oriented direction itself, as its story progresses.
Main male character tries to fit in a school life while he actually has a secret mission to accomplish.
