Full Metal Panic Fumoffu is the sequel that followed the original series that was released in 2002. Bonta-kun: Best. Mascot. Ever. OK, maybe not best, he can be second place after Nyako Sensei. I watch this much later because my watch order was Full Metal Panic!, Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TV and OAV), and this. I did not know this existed till later, so that is the order I went with.
I dare say that in some aspects, it is better than a Ghibli film; the ambient piano background music really matches with parts of the film, and the use of marimbas and even silence at the dramatic climax worked out well. Although I know don’t much about music, so I won’t talk about the music much. This movie is about acceptance, self-forgiveness and a boy that could be you or me’s journey for redemption.
