"No, it's about you and me. Whispered…I think you may have already noticed, but I am one of them."
Holy Metal Panic, Batman! Mission 06 delivers a nonstop barrage of humor, tension, and action that pulls everything together. This may be the best Full Metal Panic! DVD out of the bunch. The three episodes are distinct yet cohesive, and give substantive insight into the characters.
• "Engaging Six and Seven"
• "Venom's Flame"
• "Deep Trap"
There you have it, the penultimate mission. The audio-visuals and extras maintain the standard, looking and sounding great while providing lackluster extras. The two voice casts are matched nicely in tone and timbre. I listened to each episode in both languages and I don't have a strong preference for either: both sub and dub fans should be pleased. There is one cringe moment when Mao is insulting a soldier in "Engaging Six and Seven": she calls him a poopy head. I was all set to fire off a nasty comment about the stupid translation when I saw that the Japanese track has the same thing.
Separately the episodes have flaws. Together, they flow nicely and create an urgent need to see the ending. Kaname's unlocking and Gauron's fate are at hand; I can feel it!

What's "fair"? Whether positive or negative, our reviews should be unbiased, informative, and critique the material on its own merits.
