Waking up transformed into a beautiful girl might be the stuff of some guys' fantasies, but when the suddenly effeminatized Natsuru is informed by a stuffed tiger that he's now a Kampfer, a mystical fighter who has to fight other Kampfers in female form, his life becomes a living nightmare!

Putting aside the obvious "plumbing" issues, Natsuru's best childhood friend turns out to swing the other way and SHE has a crush on his new female body. Not complex enough? Natsuru's school has separate sections for boys and girls, so he and she are now double enrolled. The rumor-mill has it that he's dating herself. And there are other Kampfers attending the school who want to take her out, and he's not sure which ones mean "on a date" and which ones mean "permanently." Oh, and did we mention that some Kampfers use swords and guns?! Hormones, fists, and other body parts will fly as the daring, new gender-blender defender must become a contender or die!

Kampfer is an anime series I randomly picked while I was a bit bored and it wasn’t half bad. If you like perverted anime series this one might be pretty suitable for you. What I thought it was kind of unique and somewhat interesting was the gender switch that happens to a rather unlucky, ordinary student, as he tries to find out the meaning behind the changes.

Apparently, the reason of the sudden transformation was the existence of the female warriors called Kampfer, as the protagonist was chosen to become one. Although their existence is not really explained, one thing is certain, that these mysterious read more

I really love all of the crazy implausible story concepts anime is capable of delivering us. Kämpfer is no exception, as it combines many time honored and tested themes of mahou shoujo-esque transformations, girls fighting each other, gender confusion, and lesbianism. Mix in plenty of service and a clichéd harem of the usual personality types and you have an anime that basically been made a hundred times before. And a lot better too. Even though, I still found myself inexorability drawn to this title because of its fabulous seiyuu cast.

The premise for Kämpfer is a bit unique. While it shares read more

First off let me just say I'm surprised I have watched this anime all the way through. Kampfer has 12 episodes and 2 ovas.

Here are the reasons for my 5 rating.

Cons -
The main character is just plain annoying with a really annoying voice. The fact that hes dumber than a box of rocks just frustrates me more.

The plot.....I think I'm still trying to find it. This was nothing but a poorly done fan service. Oh and if you want something with a conclusion this is not it.

The Animals made no sense to me. What was the point of the animals with the entrails read more

I still have no idea why I even bothered to finish this anime. The whole thing is just random, boring and full of fanservice. The "story" revolves around Natsuru Seno, a normal boy who wakes up one morning as a girl. We learn through his stuffed tiger that talks (and also has it's stuffed guts hanging out of his stomach) that this change was because he was chosen to be a "Kampfer," a female fighter, and he continues going back and forth between girl and guy to participate in fights with other Kampfer. Why? We are never told. They never give a real reason for read more

Girls on opposite teams fighting each other using special powers. Both are ecchi series, but Sekirei has more fanservice. 
Both are gender bender anime that revolve around a guy transforming into a magical girl. Both will make you question you sexuality  
both are about girls fighting and they have some comedy in it. Also the fighting women can transform. 
Both are very similar anime with the concept of a male student entering a girls' school, or at least the female area. The male main character has the same powers as the girls for some apparent reason and a lot of the voice actors are the same.  
They both involve a gender-bended main character winding up in yuri-ish complications. The difference is that Otome is more of the otome/nice lady type while Kampfer is more of an action type. 
Both anime's feature a guy are in girls bodies(although they both can switch between when they please) They both gain new abilities and use them to solve something.
