Just saw the rest of Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid tonight, and oh man. Oh man.

Never before have I seen an anime that cycles so abruptly from badass gunfighting to quirky romance to deadpan-serious war commentary and not only succeeds in each genre, but totally kicks ass. The different genres not only do not conflict, they augment each other. Every few eps completely change the direction of the series and somehow it never comes off as jarring or contrived. It's like life--sometimes it's horror, sometimes it's romance, sometimes it's giant robot swordfights. It nicely juxtaposes the familiar, comforting world of schoolbooks and convenience stores and the harsh reality of a world perpetually in conflict. And the drama--my poor heartstrings, they hurt from being pulled so hard.
