The Man From the South
A Hostage With No Compromises (妥協無用のホステージ, Dakyō Muyō no Hosutēji) is the second story of the first episode of the anime series, Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu
After Sousuke's encounter with a gang leaves its members disrespected, their leader decides to take Kaname hostage. Instead of giving in to their demands, Sousuke holds the gang leader's little brother hostage and proposes an exchange.
"A Hostage With No Compromises" did not air in Japan because it involved child kidnapping when real-life child kidnappings were making headlines at that time. "A Fruitless Lunchtime" was broadcast in its place. "Hostage" and another story "Hostility Passing-by" were later released as OVAs.
