Full Metal Panic!: Season 1

 (TV) (2002)

Full Metal Panic!: Season 1 Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Sousuke Sagara, a seventeen year old military specialist working for the secret organization MITHRIL, has been assigned to protect the latest "Whispered" candidate Kaname Chidori. To complete this task Sousuke will have to deal with enemies from his past as well as the occasional panty thief. Unfortunately for Sousuke, the toughest part of his mission isn't only protecting Miss Chidori but also getting used to living an average High School students life, no easy task for someone raised on the battlefield.

Full Metal Panic!: Season 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (in the original aspect ratio of 4:3), Full Metal Panic looks about as good as anyone expected going in. The series was initially released in 2002, so we're witnessing a production that wasn't created with a focus on high definition visuals. What that translates into is a Blu-ray experience that demonstrates increased stability over the prior DVD version (reduced banding, aliasing, and other transfer specific anomalies), but rarely offers much improvement in the precision of lines or a reduction in haziness. Thankfully, the series never looked overly weak in the first place, so most scenes still offer average detail levels, though those looking for a significant overhaul will likely feel underwhelmed. On the positive front, we have a boost in the richness of the color scheme throughout the series, which seemed a bit muted on the prior DVD box set. Additionally, black levels and contrast appear consistent and well defined in all but a handful of scenes, adding to the depth of the predominantly hand-drawn animation.

In summary, Full Metal Panic won't knock your socks off with tremendous visuals, but for non-HD source material there's little to complain about.


Full Metal Panic!: Season 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

As with most Funimation offerings, Full Metal Panic includes a lossless English 5.1 offering, and a Japanese 2.0 offering. Switching back and forth between the native language mix and the dubbed version, I failed to notice much difference in the level of surround separation, leaving almost every element firmly entrenched in the front sound stage. While this may be disappointing to most audiophiles, it makes it much easier for most of us to justify a decision to stick with the better of the two tracks (I always tend to prefer the original rather than the dubbed option, despite the impressive voice talent utilized by FUNimation). Getting down to the particulars of the lossless upgrade, the show contains a reasonable level of clarity, but never reaches the robust heights of more recent productions. This is most apparent in the LFE elements throughout the series, which provide only average bass response during the more intense moments of the storyline.
