Chidori and Sosuke are still in high school and still up to the same old stuff. First a woman leader of a gang kidnaps Chidori in order to bait Sosuke into a trap. Little does she know that Sosuke isn't going to go down so easily. Then after Sosuke causes the lunch lady to be injured after firing his gun into the air, he and Chidori are charged with making sure lunches are sold until the lunch lady gets back. The P.E. coach decides Sosuke needs a lesson in humility but sadly underestimates his opponent.
Two short episodes originally intended for to be aired together as part of Full Metal Panic ~Fumoffu~. They were unaired due to one episode dealing with a child kidnapping and there being a bad child kidnapping case going on in Japan at the time.

[2 OAV episodes, 11.5 minutes each. Based on the short stories by GATOU Shouji. R1 License by ADV. These two episodes were placed back into their original places by ADV for the R1 DVD release.]

If you liked Full Metal Panic ~Fumoffu~, you are going to love these two short episodes. I'd not seen the first story before but the second one is straight out of volume 1 of the manga. Sosuke and the coach Kogure-sensei's way of doing battle is just laugh-out-loud funny. If you've read the manga, you'll know what I mean.

Since Fumoffu was mostly an episodic series, these two episodes are just fine as stand-alone OAV's. That's good since these were initially supposed to be combined for the show's 2nd episode airing. So there are no problems not seeing these in the original order.

Bottom line: more great, funny stuff for fans of Full Metal Panic and especially Full Metal Panic ~Fumoffu~.
