read the manga in Newtype USA first
31 March 2003 | by gjhongSee all my reviews

I got the imported DVD from Chinatown so I've seen the first 7 episodes of Full Metal Panic. I've also been reading the manga version in Newtype USA. Warning - the anime gives away the background of the story, namely who is Chidori and why does Sosuke have to protect her. In the comic after six chapters all we can tell so far is that Sosuke is a weirdo with a gun who has taken it upon himself to protect Chidori from all harm. I do recommend both versions.
