I don't really take Fumofuu into account, since that's more of a humor series anyway.

You need to understand, though. The announcement wasn't Tessa intending to pull Sousuke away from Chidori, it was meant to push him towards the Arbalest, which is was TSR was centered around... Sousuke understanding what the Arbalest is capable of, and how to properly use the Lambda Driver inside of it.

In Episode 8 of TSR, when Tessa yelled at Sousuke, and chewed him out, it became Tessa wanting Sousuke to grow a backbone, and oppose a decision she's made, which, up until now, he hasn't done.

The way I see it, Tessa doesn't want blind trust, she wants Sousuke to be, well... human. You know, have a will and an opinion of his own. Someone she can talk to as a friend. Note in Episode 9 of the original FMP, she suggested Sousuke not refer to her in rank, which failed, of course. That's proof of my theory.

SousukeXTessa has potential. SousukeXKaname only works for the viewer, up to the point where Kaname channels Naru, and smacks Sousuke across the head with whatever.

dude your reading way too much into what she did, concensus is Tessa is a whiny bitch who needs a slap. She might have wanted him to grow a backbone but why not directly say it to him, as a soldier he would understand. Instead, she confuses him, blames him, ends up hurting his feelings by seperating him from Chidori, and that's supposed to help him?

i dont know if you guys have ever been in a relationship, but if your boss tells you to break it off in order to make you 'human' or to 'grow a backbone' that is 100% load of shit. Tessa may have had noble intentions but Souske had to be human in order to have feelings for Chidori in the first place. Taking him away from her if anything would cause more harm than good. This is true in real life. Tessa is an overall annoyance and a whiny idiot who happens to have more responsibility than she should have. Souske had no reason to be yelled at and blamed, he risks his life for the organization and this is what he is payed with? Not only did he follow Tessa's orders to leave kaname, but is talked down to as if he needs a lesson from another brat.

The fact that you said that the whole series was about connecting to Arbalest supports Souske and Kaname. Think about it. He couldn't control the Lamda Driver until..... Kaname came back and gave him a good kick in the face. How about when he first operated the Lambda Driver. Who was it that taught him how to use it? Kaname thats who. How about When he had to take on the large mech? Kaname is there and tells him how to destroy the engines. To be honest though, even though your thoughts on what the series was about supports Souske and Kaname, it was actually about Souske being able to balance his life. Not exploring Arbalest's capabilities. That was merely something that came along when he wasn't able to balance things. Most of all, there is no chemistry between Souske and Tessa whatsoever. If you do, your being worse than a Narutard. I could count the times Tessa and Souske actually can be calm around eachother on one hand and still have a few fingers left. Either Souske is nervous as hell because he realizes that his superior in office is around or Tessa is completely embarassed being the klutz that she is. Kaname and Souske actually trust eachother more than anyone else. Souske and Kaname all the way.

Point conceded. Match point to you.

Though I'd say Sousuke's hella nervous around his commanding officer. That's much more believable then Tessa's clumsiness. The TSR OVA definitely states that. Tessa's in her underwear, drunk as a skunk, and Sousuke's too WTF to take advantage of it. Tessa's the one who wants Sousuke to be more social, after all. I guess it is kind of one-sided, after all, but we'll have to wait for the novels for more chances of interaction between the two.

And I know I wasn't gonna use Fumofuu as an example, but I'm breaking my own hypocrisy by saying if Sousuke were to try anything, you've got Mardukas ready to punish him if he did. Now there's some motivation to restrain your libido >_>

Even if Tessa wants to hook up with Sousuke it is not going to happen because she is his superior officer. Sousuke would never date an officer because it is against the rules of military conduct. He would be punished and probably kicked out of the military, he would never risk that for a female.

Technically speaking though, Mithrill isn't really the military. They are a mercenray group that follow military standards...for the most part. Besides, Souske DID risk his military career for a female.

Spoiler

In Full Metal Panic TSR, Souske demanded to continue protecting Kaname or else he would quit Mithrill. In the end, he stays in mithrill, protects Kaname, still pilots Arbalest, and does it for half the pay.
