Full Metal Panic and Ai Yori Aoshi share an uncanny bond. They both will make you spew soda all over your screen from massive histeria, if you take a drink at the wrong time. Both are classics with their excellent mix of physical and situational humor, from accidental to not-so-accidental contact. But in the end, it's the love between the main characters in both FMP and AYA that will capture your attention, and leave you wanting more when all's done. Thumbs Up!

Macross has some of the best mecha animation I´ve seen, thats why its secound placed as a recamendation for FMP. Macross plus also has Mecha/drama/love as its prime aspects.

While there may not be battles to save Suguru's life in this series, Full Metal Panic fans might like this series for the sheer fact that there are bettles in Mahoromatic... battles to keep a lusty teacher away from the innocent 14 year old!

"Labors" are large construction robots that are now being used to commit crimes. To meet the challenge, Special Vehicle (SV) units are established by the Tokyo PD. However, the Second SV unit is a total joke.

These are both mecha animes in what i would call a fairly realistic future sci fi type (sorry to raxephon and evangelion, but they are a little more farfetched) The mecha scenes just seem so believable (except for that damn giant red one in fmp... but i guess it's ok too) additionally the military organization and police force setting is quite similar, though you get more frequent escapes to school in fmp.

These two series are what I like to refer to as a "soldier theme" series. Meaning, that they deal with soldiers, and all the classic themes and stories. The stories usually are, fighting far away yet have a love back home to think of, soldiers who wish to die, friend vs friend, heroic tales against the odds, death of comrades to name a few.
