Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
A combination of action and comedy with some tragic parts thrown in make up the scenario for both Full Metal Panic and Full Metal Alchemist. Similar standing between the characters relationships with each other.
Well FMP and FMA,not only have somehow a similar name,but somehow a similar storyline.In both there is some goal,which they need to reach,but with sacrifices.I think you should check that.
If you liked Full Metal Panic!, try out this similarly-named anime. On the surface the two shows aren't similar at all, but there's a good mix of both laugh-out-loud funny moments, tense action scenes, and dark, dramatic character moments.
Amazing characters, action, and plot you will find in both anime. While they seem to be completely different genres FMP being mecha and FMA being alchemy but they both share a military theme that was done extreemly well in both. If you liked one check out the other.
Each of these series contain a good balance of comedy and action while keeping a good plot in sight. Furthermore, each series has strong ties to the military and, at times, when to question the military.
Im lying here. I just wanted to interject and say that these anime are completely different. FMP is trash. Stereotypical undeveloped characters, bland "humor", and a practically non-existent plot. FMA is fucking amazing, even if FMA:B is better.
The government has passed the Media Betterment Act, establishing a military police force to stop the spread of "negative influences harmful to society;" and in response, libraries have organized their own military units to protect freedom of expression. After being saved by a Library Defense Force agent in a bookstore, Kasahara is inspired to enlist in the Library Defense Force. Although she proves quite athletic and capable, she must endure the harsh but meaningful training of her instructor and superior officer, Doujou. As she learns how to be a good soldier, she participates in LDF operations, helping protect literary freedom for everyone.
Both series have a militaristic backdrop with a good dose of humour. Both shows have a similar feeling from them, so if you liked one you will probably like the other.
This series also focuses on a comedic relationship with many problems and misunderstandings while both are related to miliary. Overall, its very similar and at least as lovely as the other one!
It may not sound too convincing but FMP and Toshokan Sensou did feel somehow alike. Well TS wasn't a mecha show and didn't have those bits of echii, but that wasn't the main subject of FMP (really). In FMP we have a guy(solider) who enters a world he is (totally) unfamiliar with, namely high-school. On the other hand in TS we have a girl joining army. See the pattern? Good.
Plot wise FMP might be actually better (more coherent), but TS delivers some character development, which FMP so badly lacks. Yeah I know, it all sound fishy, but trust me there is a big chance that you will like one if you liked the other.
P.S. As a side note, Doujou and Sagara look quite alike.
While the main story plots are different, they're both Military, and share things in common. They're both rather funny with "subliminal relationships" so to speak. The main characters in both obviously have feelings for each other, but there is mostly restraint and stop these shows from turning in to romance.
Even though Toshokan Sensou has a lighter feeling than the drama that can be seen in Full Metal Panic ,both animes have really similar elements - mostly for good.TS and Fmp follow the story of love on the battlefield.What first starts as a military duty ends as a love story.While not focusing mainly on romance, you are presented with alot of action battles and well put comedy.Fmp has more strong points but Ts also slowly reveals its charm with its good characterization.Both animes's female protogonists here are stubborn,tomboish emotional and pretty strong!At times Kasahara(TS) and Chidori(Fmp) are violent to their beloved ones but this is their strange way to express their emotions.The male leads also have alot of similarities.Fmp and Ts differ in many other ways despite military and romance themes so both shows deserve to be watched.
Both of these series contain couples that argue in a comedic fashion. They each include comedy and action in their story-telling through a militaristic background. Full Metal Panic! focuses more on its action and mecha battles but still delivers in romance and drama.
Both Full Metal Panic! and Toshokan Sensou features skirmishes between paramilitary organisations coupled with romance, flat-out comedy and "a day in the life"-moments. If the premise of one of them interested you it might be a good idea to check out the other.
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
FMP and Code Geass both excel in 1 thing: mecha action! Mecha isn't my genre at all, but with the addition of both military tactics and an un-Earthly weapon that isn't too overpowered; even i have to admit that you can find another anime to your liking by completing these two anime.
If you liked one for the giant mech fights, then you'll surely like the other. The fights the characters go through also mess with their lives outside the battlefield, causing a struggle to keep both sides in check.
If you liked FMP, you'll likely enjoy Code Geass because they both have a lot of mech fighting, are centered, at least most of the series, around high school, and have some mysterious powers endowed within the main characters.
Enjoy Mega epic mecha battles? Like plenty of strategic planning? Backstabbing (although more prevalent in geass)? If the answer is yes, you will find both a plenty in these animes.
Code Geass and Full Metal Panic! Are about high school aged students that get caught up in a military type of situation. With lots of intense battle scenes and giant robot fights these two series are perfect.
Combine Mecha, government conspiracy, the supernatural, and school life. You now have the major points of both FMP and Code Geass. Both feature a rather rich cast of characters and plenty of mecha battles.

Kaze no Stigma has a similar feel to Full Metal Panic! The heroines remind me of each other and the art has a very similar feel. It's an action-romance type with a tough main character.
Kaze no Stigma and Full Metal Panic! Both have the romantic aspects while being in high intensity situations. The heroines of the stories have similar personalities with stubborn attitudes towards the male counterparts.
A rather tsundere female lead with hidden talents, a cool-as-ice, but socially awkward male lead, and a cast of interesting, often humerous side characters. The way the two leads work together is similar in both anime, and the villain has ties to the male leads past.
Not only do the series have mirror like plots they also have characters with personalities that are very similar. If you like one you will definately like the other.
Both have similar main characters, a stong and very loud female role accompanied with a strong and heavy burdened male role. The only big difference is tat Kaze no Stigma uses magic as a method of fighting while Full Metal Panic uses machinery.
Both have a very similar female main character both physically and mentally. they are both hotheaded and strong plus the main male characters are also very similar, physically and both are very strong and good at what they are doing. and of course both girls like the main male character.
The universe of the future is divided between the Earth Alliance and ZAFT. After a year of war, ZAFT attacks the neutral colony Heliopolis to steal five prototype mobile suits. The mission is a success, but a young man named Kira stumbles upon the fifth Gundam, and he may be the Alliance's only hope...
People with special knowledge are making mobile suits - coordinators and whispers - which are far stronger than normal mobile suits. Though it's not my thing, Gundam SEED and FMP are a must see for any mecha fan
Gundam SEED shares the gorgeous animation and focus on intra-character relationships that make Full Metal Panic so enjoyable.
For the mecha lovers these two might be great choices! First of all, you'll find robots in both animes, but more importantly, robots that are greater than the regular ones, robots that are specially made for the greatest pilots . Second of all, these pilots, the protagonists, go through a series of changes, especially psychologically, changes that help them be better , stronger ,and have a clearer mind . It's the characters' evolution that is one of the things that make the two so good. In addition, you might like the love stories that create along the way, the help the boy gets from his loved one and the feeling of protecting the weak from evil. MSGS and FMP are both worth watching!
Awesome mecha battles, is more needed to be said?
Also, relationships are a big focus for both.
