Anime: Full Metal Panic! (フルメタルパニック!)

This, my dear readers, is one of the best comedies I have ever seen!

Full Metal Panic! (フルメタル·パニック!, often abbreviated to FMP!) is a series of light novels written by Gatou Shouji and illustrated by Douji Shiki. The series follows Sagara Sousuke, a member of the covert anti-terrorist private military organization known as Mithril, tasked with protecting Chidori Kaname, a spirited Japanese high school girl.

He moves to Japan to study at Chidori’s school, Jindai High School, with assistance from his comrades Kurz Weber and Melissa Mao. Having never experienced social interactions, Sousuke is found as a military maniac by his schoolmates as he interprets everyday situations from a combat perspective. He comes to relate with Chidori who realizes that Sousuke is protecting her, but he does not reveal the reasons due to orders as well as the fact he does not know why Chidori is being targeted by different organizations.

The series has been adapted into three animated television series: Full Metal Panic! by Gonzo in 2002, Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu and Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid by Kyoto Animation in 2003 and 2005 respectively. An OVA was also released in 2006.

This series is funny as hell, and proof of that is the video below! Enjoy!
