Full Metal Panic!, Buddy Complex Recommendations

- Both series has a slight element of school setting
- Both series takes place in the future, sci-fi genre
- Male MC are professional robot-users
- Both series male protagonist protects female protagonist
- Both series uses mecha robots for military use
Both series reminds of each other even if they have a decade release date in between them. Even though FMP is from 2002, the animation resembles Code Geass animation, and therefore you should not worry about the quality/art.
