The story is really action packed and exciting. It starts out with SGT. Sagara Sousuke (who works for an anti-terrorist organization) getting assigned to guard Chidori Kaname, a high school girl, from any danger. Now Sousuke has to attend the high school to protect her. He is a war crazed, paranoid, soldier who isn't exactly the best at undercover work. The story will only get better and better from here on.
The character designs were good and the Arm Slave designs were really cool. The battle scenes were executed perfectly too.
FMP! has a very good variety of tracks, such as happy, sad, mysterious, battle, victory etc.
I thought the story was very good and original. It's the first anime that I've seen that uses war and terrorists, as a story line. I was surprised it turned out this well.
Overall (81/100) 8.1
Overall this is a great anime that can be enjoyed by mecha and non-mecha fans alike. Most people complain about the ending, but those that do should read the manga. It goes past the anime. Also there is a new season of FMP! coming out this year, but it will feature the second manga series which is basically the same thing, but a bit funnier and takes different story paths then the anime.
