First DVDs: Sousuke and Kaname are back in action! And this time, the battleground is the school ground! High-yield explosives and hilarity come together with a bang, as the somber soldier and his unwitting target brave everything from lovesick "terrorists" to an unforgiving teacher who is bent on revenge. A day at the beach turns sour after Sousuke misses the point one too many times (and even fails to notice KanameÕs new bikini). Then, when Kaname is suddenly kidnapped, itÕs up to our dense hero to devise a daring rescue!

Second DVD: SousukeÕs in for the fight of his life! A simple art assignment turns deadly as the entire class gangs up on the mercenary-turned-model. Then, he has to defend Kaname against Yakuza thugs, battle karate masters, escape a chainsaw-wielding janitor, and rein in a super-creepy stalker. And just when you thought it couldnÕt get crazier, Kaname and Sousuke head to a haunted hospital, where blood-spattered ghosts teach the pair a frightening lesson in deception. The combat and comedy never let up in the second volume of Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu! Hold onto your seats (and your sides), because this disc packs a full metal punch!

Third DVD:Bring it on! Sport is war. At least, that's the attitude Sousuke takes when he and Kaname get enlisted to help Jindai High's flagging, pacifist rugby team. Against Kaname's will, Sousuke decides to bring the spineless squad up to speed with a little over-the-top, all-out-hilarious "basic training." And while school may be in session for Sousuke and Kaname, vacation has just started for Tessa. Her destination: Jindai High... and a nearby hot spring! Mao and Kurz are there to provide backup for Tessa, but it may be Sousuke who needs it! Tessa has her sights set on him, and nothing Š not even Kaname Š is gonna stop her!

Fourth DVD:First, a laugh-out-loud yakuza war brings gangster stereotypes to life, risks the lives of Kaname and Sousuke, and enlists an unlikely army of Bonta-kuns to save the day! Next, there's a turf war on the school campus, and it's nerd against nerd, in an ill-inspired contest to see which group of misfits can seduce the most girls! And finally, it's scandal, scare, skin, and screamin' hilarity Š as a whole classroom of students discards common sense... just before they unwittingly discard their clothes! ItÕs a fitting finish to a frenzied frolic in full-metal frivolity!

Hannah's comments: Very funny. But not as good as Fullmetal Panic. Fumoffu doesn't feel like a total series, more like short episodes in Sagara's and Chidori's schoollife.I don't understand the Bonta-thing. Is it a quite typical Japanese figure in an amusingpark? I have to investigate in this ;-D. Not at all so serious and violant as the the first Panic-series. I really like the voices of Sagara and Chidori. Like Sagaras's so unbelievable notice about girls.He doesn't act like a man in "boy-girl"-thingy. He's definitely into military things up to 110%. Animation and music good. A little abrupt ending. But still ok with just 12 episodes of this series. Still, higly recommended, but go and watch the original "Fullmetal Panic", before you see "Fumoffu".
