I haven't watched anything belonging to Full Metal Panic series. I'm a little confused with the order. In what order should I watch it ?

The order they came out, maybe?

Original.
Fumoffu.
The Second Raid.

Is how I watched it and makes most sense. You don't need to watch Fumoffu to get anything since it's a side story, but it's the best part of the franchise, so don't miss it.


And on the edge of sanity I stumble and fall.

It isn't always like that, for example Ghost in the Shell movie came out earlier, but it makes more sense if you watch it after the Ghost in the shell SAC even though the latter came out much later. Also, same situation with Ah My Goddess movie and TV series.

Hi I have just started watching Full Metal Panic and I need know the correct order to watch/read. First I would like to advance as far as possible with the anime then if someone can tell me which manga continues the story (if soever).

Also if you think the manga is better than the anime or if the anime skips some important stuff please tell me.

Full metal panic!
Full metal panic? fumoffu (just a spin-off, not really part of the story but still a good watch)
Full metal panic! 2nd raid

im currently reading the manga but this anime is more enjoyable in anime, mecha fights is boring in manga. The manga is much longer tho

Read Sigma to get the rest of the story.
Skip the original; hasn't aged well.

And for the love of god, don't read Overload (or w/e the spinoff was called.)

Thanks for the information. Sorry if this thread is old. I'm just serious about showing my appreciation to the members. I just finished watching Full Metal Panic and was losing my mind on which (Second Raid or Fumoffu) one to watch next. Now I'm smiling. :)
