Episode Summary

EDIT
The Goddess's Visit to Japan (The Onsen Chapter)
AIRED:
The second half of Tessa's student life includes a trip to the hot springs! With FMP regulars Kurtz Weber and Melissa Mao hosting the event, it's a chance for everyone to relax. But as Kurz implies, hot springs means there may be some of THAT, which he is determined to get. This excites all the guys except Sousuke who just wants to have a normal vacation.moreless

  • This is real change in terms of fan service for FMP.

    9.1
    A great episode that shows the main cast heading to a hot springs resort, as usual with Kurtz there, its time for some perving, watch as Kurtz, Shinji and Ono-D attemp to peek in the womens hot springs with a great selection of female characters including, Tessa, Kaname, Kyoko, Mao, Ren and Myzuki plenty of fan service, however that damn ladybug and rubber duck get in the way of some really juicy scenes.moreless
  • The highly anticipated Hot Tub episode rides on a simple plot. Stuff some tissue in your nose now.

    8.8
    Kurz and the boys are determined to see the girls bathing, but with Sousuke and Mao in the picture, that isn't going to happen.



    (some minor spoilers beware)



    I don't know why bathing would be such a big deal since everyone's seen Kaname before in the opening video for the regular Full Metal Panic series. There is nudity, but the producers really goof on the viewers by placing some strategically placed objects ala Austin Powers. Also, one shot is covered but may be inappropriate for broadcast except after 10pm.



    Good to see Kurz again, and he delivers some memorable character moments especially with inspiring Shinji. I also liked Sousuke's making the best of his time there since he was doing stuff I'd probably be doing.



    Tessa's character was fun, but most of her involvement in this episode got limited to video clips and the final segment, all deferred to make room for the heavy fan service.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Though naked, the young women are all consistently and strategically censored by branches, other body parts such as arms, and even a rubber ducky. It could be considered a sort of exaggerated parody of how anime shows will have nudity, but still block the more scandalous areas of the woman's body (Outlaw Star, for example).

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (Sousuke seems to be having a terrible nightmare)
      Cmd. Mardukas: If you do anything perverted to the Captain... I will tear you apart limb from limb! Understood?! (Sousuke wakes up)

    • Shinji: I can see it, where are the targets? This way!
      (Shinji jumps over the fence and lands in the bath with his face in front of naked Sousuke.)
      Sousuke: The men's bath and women's bath switch sides after 10pm.

    • (After Shinji survives another trap.)
      Shinji: That's it! I can't take it anymore! Even if we have infinite lives, it's not enough!

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Tetris
      When Kurz, Shinji and Ono D are about to go out to peek on the girls for the second time, Sousuke is seen playing the game Tetris, on the Super Nintendo entertainment system.

    • Gundam Seed
      When Shinji has been energized in peeping on the bathing women, there is a brief scene spoofing Gundam Seed. In that show, a seed falls falls and breaks open as the Coordinators look up dramatically, symbolizing an activation of their abilities. The same thing happens here, except the seed is replaced with a pair of panties.

    • Raiders of the Lost Hot Tub
      Kurz attempts to shift the weight off of Shinji's leg by substituting a rock. As he does this slowly, Onodera is watching with his hands in front of him and fingers twitching. This is the same pose that Indiana Jones' assistant assumes in Raiders of the Lost Ark when Indy attempts to substitute the idol's weight with a bag of sand.
