Equipped with cutting-edge weaponry and specialized troops, a private military organization named Mithril strives to extinguish the world's terrorism and all threats to peace on earth. The organization is powered by the "Whispered," individuals who possess intuitive knowledge and the remarkable ability to create powerful devices and machinery. Seventeen-year-old Sousuke Sagara, a sergeant working for Mithril, has been assigned to protect Kaname Chidori, a Whispered candidate. He is ordered to join her high school class and be as close to her as possible to prevent her from falling into enemy hands—that is, if he can safely blend in with their fellow classmates without revealing his true identity. Sousuke, who was raised on a battlefield and has very little knowledge of an average high school student's lifestyle, must adapt to a normal school life to safeguard Kaname. However, enemy forces have already begun making their move, and Sousuke is about to find out that the adversary coming for the Whispered girl may be a lot more familiar than he expects.

Mechas, secret organizations, highschool romances… this show has a lot going on.
Nice balance of comedy, mech and non-mech action and drama. Characters are all likeable and extremely memorable.
All time favorite anime: it has the best blend of comedy, action, romance, slice of life, and not to mention: mecha!
FMP is a great first step into the world of mecha because of its easy going nature and inter-splicesd SOL and comedic relief episodes.
Fuck me, what a great dub. The cast just dose it right for me
The slice of life part is fun, the mecha part is dumb boring shit
Can’t decide what it wants to be. The highschool elements just constitute filler for the over-arching plot. Ends up just being average.
