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!

This will be fast, because i really hated this.

The story looked interesting and it was interesting till the protagonist Natsuru only wanted to talk about Kaede every single time, it was annoying how dumb Natsuru was, one of the slowest in understanding protagonist i have seen till now, f**k he was dumb.

Art & Animation
The art felt generic, nothing amazing but it wasn't that bad for being from 2009 so it was fine.

The sound was saved only by the voice acting, the only thing you can really enjoy from this anime, so it was fair.

You can try to like the characters, but if they only are 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

What do you get when you combine ecchi and harem anime... A FUCKING DISASTER. Just like DanMachi.

Story: YOU WISH.
the story basically revolves around this generic ass dude who has been used about 200 other anime who has a whole harem of girls trying to get on his dick. While fighting this force that gets only a 30 second explanation in the last episode. Even after that the show goes back to the shitty ass shots and tit shots in this show. Generic as FUCK.

Art: MEH...
The art was pretty okay for the genre it was in but the animation only got good when there was ass read more

Ah, Kampfer. The Anime with big-breasted girls fighting for no reason. Here's what I think after completing Kampfer. I will not write spoilers so don't worry.

Story: 7/10
Story? Hmm. Kampfer actually has no story. It's basically just a guy turning into a girl that goes to a school in which boys and girls are separated. Just throw a few random fights out there, and ta-dah, you get Kampfer. They basically don't know why they're fighting until the very end, in which came out as a sci-fi thing.

Art: 9/10
I loved the art of Kampfer. It was outstanding. The details are very well drawn and animated, and ofcourse, read more

Anime: Sekirei
Girls on opposite teams fighting each other using special powers. Both are ecchi series, but Sekirei has more fanservice.

Anime: Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu.
Both are gender bender anime that revolve around a guy transforming into a magical girl. Both will make you question you sexuality  
reportRecommended by TrueKingOfAnime
Anime: Akikan!
both are about girls fighting and they have some comedy in it. Also the fighting women can transform.

Anime: Ranma ½
Both Ranma and this Kampfer guy have the same problem-when they turn into a girl, thay don't stare at themselvees in the mirror naked,and don't musturbate on themselves.
Though they don't do it with different reasons-Ranma is a man of honour,when Kampfer guy is a pussy even in male form.
so same problems,same jokes,if u liked one u may like another.

Anime: Tetsuwan Birdy Decode
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. 
reportRecommended by dungenlancer
Anime: IS: Infinite Stratos
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.
