I remember watching an anime about a special ops soldier who is assigned to be the bodyguard of a high school student. He is also socially inept in that he interprets almost anything as a threat to her. I believe it has two seasons, the first season of which is actual plot, and the second season is episodic, comical episodes.

    Yup definitely sounds like Full Metal Panic and Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu – кяαzєя Feb 19 '14 at 17:15
  • Wow... post it in an answer guys, good job. You should have seen how contorted my face was when I read your comments, because just last weekend my friend asked me, "Have you ever seen Full Metal Panic before?" and I said no... – NobleUplift Feb 19 '14 at 18:24
  • So I guess I have seen it then. – NobleUplift Feb 19 '14 at 18:24

To formalize what has been stated in the comments:

The anime series in question is Full Metal Panic, based on the light novel series. Mech-specialist Sgt. Sagara Souske is tasked to protect Kaname Chidori when she is targeted by a terrorist organization. He is a skilled fighter, but fails to react normally in most social situations.

It features 3 seasons (as of 2014):

Full Metal Panic - the first season is very plot driven.

Full Metal Panic? Fummoffu - the second season takes a more comedic approach, with many of the episodes being broken into 2 half-episodes.

Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid - the third season is much like the first, with more of a plot focus (13-episodes).

  • I'll give @NaingLinAung a day or two to answer, since he was first. – NobleUplift Feb 22 '14 at 23:34
