Just another boring day in the life of Tessa Testarossa. After a night of serious drinking with Melissa Mao (who took certain liberties with an unconscious Tessa) Tessa has a nightmare and awakens with a hangover. As she leaves her room, she bumps into Sousuke who is running a simulation on the Arbalest......

More FMP! But this won't feature Kaname. Instead it focuses on TESSA! It's just one of the short stories from the Novel FMP! Dounimo Naranai Gori Muchuu.
[1 Episode OVA - 30 Mins based on the short story of the same name by Gatou-sensei.]

As a stand-alone episode, the Tessa OAV makes for a solid 30 minutes of humor as we see sides to several of Tessa's military personnel you won't find elsewhere as the gal tries recalling where her Bonta-kun doll is after a night where she was drunk. From horrible cooking to closet anime fandom, it was a hoot seeing a normal day with Tessa that goes crazy, even with the girl's antics in front of Sousuke. And Sousuke being around Tessa made for some of this OAV's funniest moments, even one point where she makes him lose his composure.

Expect plenty of fan service from Tessa at the start of this OAV. Otherwise, this OAV is another great extra for Full Metal Panic fans to check out.

ok so who here doesn't like tessa? I mean if you have been watching FMP for like two different raids(seasons), and have been going give tessa some love, we are sick of chidori...well this OVA is for you...Personally even without the fanservice this OVA is silly and fun, very enjoyeable...but don't get me wrong, fan service was more than welcome...if you want to complete your FMP collection, it is a must own...

Oh yeah, more FMP goodness cannot be a bad thing. Initially, this was reported to not feature Sousuke and Chidori. Well Chidori doesn't appear (she does get a mention), but Sousuke is there, and to be honest, he was the icing on the cake.

OK, so we have a day in the life of Tessa on the island base that Mithril has. I could have done without the fanservice at the begining, but I'm sure the Tessa fans were very happy about that. Thanks to Melissa getting her drunk the night before, the story revolves around Tessa trying to recall the events of the previous night, and to locate her Bonta-kun. As a vehicle, this works to allow us to see, through Tessa's eyes, a day in the life of Melissa, Webber, the new commander of the URZ team Clouseau, Mardukas, and Kalinin. Well, less Mardukas I suppose since he isn't really shown in an "off duty" moment like the others. Still, I rather enjoyed seeing what these folks do in their free time. There was plenty of humor to go along with it as well.

One other item of interest -- the anime creators (and maybe Gatou-sensei as well) must be fans of Miyazaki-sensei, since there is a tribute to him in this. Of course what Webber did to the DVD is one of the funnier moments in this title.

Bottom line: A good bone to toss to the FMP fans who can't get enough of the franchise. Now that FUNimation has the title, I'm twice as happy to give this a buy.

OMG Did someone take the entire season of Fumuffo and compress it into 30 minutes?

Of course now I HAVE to watch the entire set of FMP all over again.

I love Tessa!

BTW This is a BORING day of Tessa's life? Gah, but we do know what is an exciting day of her life (err TSR?)

Damn You Funi! I really hope you got a hold of this OVA as well as TSR when you release it!

And I wonder if Chris Patton (Sousuke) will be Sousuke in this too!
