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  
report Recommended by QuarianAnimeFan
both are about girls fighting and they have some comedy in it. Also the fighting women can transform.

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.

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. 
report Recommended by dungenlancer
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.  
report Recommended by Fortitude-Creed
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. 
report Recommended by Shigeyama
Well, both animes have this main character who likes this one girl he originally likes and is constantly trying to win her over. Also both are harems and school life, and there are many girls who chase after the main character, who is clueless to this fact. 
report Recommended by bunnychii
Both are by the same studio, nomad, and both feature people fighting for a reason they are unsure about. I didn't really like either of these shows, but if it floats your boat...

Basically, Kampfer = Rozen Maiden with hot chix.

Romance comedies with a lot of girls after one boy. Oh, Kampfer character appear in the background of episode three of Asobi ni Iku Yo. What?

Both are about a gender bending main character who the entire cast wants to have sex with.

Girl's fighting with weapon's and a little bit of shoujo ai in it too. 
report Recommended by Minifomse12
the protagonist also transform into a man-in-girl's cosplay costume which makes the anime more hilarious =D 
report Recommended by xKwan
Both of them have erotic scene, both of them, have lesbian or pseudo-lesbian interation. 
report Recommended by zerosteele
Small or stuffed animals, who assist magical girls, make jocular comments and break the fourth wall.

Additionally, both shows have a lot of ecchi. 
report Recommended by shigeru212
Super ecchi ness and a lot of fight scenes  
report Recommended by vasplar
Both have a male or groups of males turning into the opposite gender in order to fight. If you like gender swapping those two are for you! 
report Recommended by Jmac
Both anime uses females characters with bracelets that grant them power. They are both extremely ecchi with lots of fan-service with the male protagonist at the center of attention like most harem. 
report Recommended by orbbie
Both have a main character boy, surrounded by girls/angels with biiiiig breasts.
Both are very funny.
Both have superpowers.

One day, o boy discover that he is a very beautiful girl with big breast, then hey bear toy explain that he must fight as a kampfer, and kamperfs are girls so he became a girl.

The other story is about a very preverted boy who love his peacefull life and a small city, but one day he find an angel, and she became his slaves.

These 2 animes are the funnyest anime ever. You will laught untill death, so you can't miss  read more

Both are harem and involve manifesting weapons and fighting.

Main Similarities:
•Yuri only, no dudes (1 guy in Kampfer, but he transforms into a girl for most of the series).
•Lot's of action (+ similar genres).
•Tons of fan service (ecchi in Kampfer, full exposed oppai's in Valkyrie Drive). 
report Recommended by RFernandez23
both are very extrem ecchi series where you can actually see the nips sometimes,and both had a much richer potential with the plot,but well the plot you will see in these shows ain't that bad ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 
report Recommended by Veleca
Both series are action-themed but are mostly recognised for the immense amount of fanservice. We have girls transforming and battling each other, but you mostly watch this for the "plot". At least I suspect most people do. Another similairity is that in both series the protagonist is very embarressed by their transformation at the beginning, but learns to deal with it later.
Between the two of them Kill la Kill stays true to the action genre and just puts the fanservice in there at the same time, while Kämpfer turns into a harem halfway through.

Both have killer females
main character both have blue hair
both yuri animes(kampfer has more lesbo action than akuma) 
report Recommended by LaCrayCray
Both of the main characters from each show are introduced into a underground fight club of sorts. Very good for a laugh and an easy going show to enjoy. 
report Recommended by Chog_Bakasan
The main protagonist is loved by the girls around him. In both, the girls are extremely beautiful and are unique in a way and seem awfully appealing. In Kampfer, the boy has special powers unlike the boy in Shuffle.  
report Recommended by AznBaka
Both seem like they're humorously making fun of themselves
cool ed animations too  
report Recommended by Hideyoshilover
Both pretty super natural. But Kämpfe is more of a magic fighting anime.

Highschool of the Dead is more of a IRL zombie anime.

But the thing that they got both in common is that there's alot of boob grabbing and boob shots if you know what i mean. Alot of girls in both. Also the're worth watching. If you like one of those then i recemmend you check out the other one too!

Both are comedies setted at school where main character is a boy surrounded by females and is frekvently being force to change into a girl. While in Himegoto he only crosdress, in Kampfer he changes completly. Kampfer has also more action. 
report Recommended by abystoma2
Both are Harem/Action/Ecchi with a guy who can really do nothing and super powered girls around him who protect them.In Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai the guy has no powers but contributes to the group through thinking up stratagies while in Kampfer even though the guy has a power he more holds the group back then contributes. 
report Recommended by Ozzey
-Both animes are about receiving or meeting a third party to supply you with powers to fight in a game, and aim to defeat the other opposing parties to overcome it.
report Recommended by MagicFlier
Both have a school setting, and have a fighting tournament. Also lets not forget they also share girls getting clothes ripped/torn up during fight scenes.
report Recommended by Ixanthis
they both have chicks fighting. though Platonic Hearts is more drama, and takes things more seriously. 
report Recommended by Pandadice
Both are about girls fighting and they have some comedy in it. Also the fighting women can transform. Also both are ecchi. 
report Recommended by nn65535
it's somewhat similar since
both have girls liking one guy, but kampfer the guy can also be a girl, doesn't happen in Mashiro
report Recommended by pakin
Both are harem shows that try to run something like a plot as well, as the usual fanservice 
report Recommended by torgon02
In both, the protagonist is a boy that is transformed into a girl and has hilarious situations.  
report Recommended by Orulyon
Both have ecchi and have weird love issues ; mainly being love triangles and such 
report Recommended by RedBardIsCool
Both deal with fights amoung a group of friends and to a certain degree, betrayl. They also both share a similar animation and art style 
report Recommended by RedBardIsCool
Both are genderbenders with weird love situations. 
report Recommended by RedBardIsCool
Both have girl/girl relationships that can be vague ( especially in VVV ) and they have a bit of violence 
report Recommended by RedBardIsCool
Girls with super powers fighting each other, both have their sexual sides to the story but Kampfer has it a bit stronger, while Freezing has more nudity. Both involve a guy that doesn't really want to be involved.

Bottom line....if you liked freezing you should really watch Kampfer 
report Recommended by mav419
Similar character traits for Sangou, Shizuku and the main character of Bakemonogatari. Both show traits of de-tsud and a hybrid version of tsud in the best possible way. Also both main guy character are aloof to the relationship between the love interest.

-Both are ecchi 
report Recommended by MagicFlier
Both are harems built with fanservice. Both involve female characters powering up and transforming as well as a decent amount of fighting, but Rosario + Vampire contains more plot and develops a more coherent story. The main characters in both also like someone over everyone else with the other characters vying for attention. 
report Recommended by joshspeagle
Both are revolved around slapstick and sexual humor. Every little moment in Dokuro is as comical as any you'll see in Kampfer.

Transgender from male to female,Natsuru and Hazumu both simmiliar :D,and they have a comedy story..enjoy ;) 
report Recommended by temptation41
Both animes have a fighting girl vs. girl background

But in Kampfer just generally more hilarious and in Mai Otome more serious, and in Mai Otome you need a "master" who can activate your materialize suit. 
report Recommended by SoumaK
They are both about special girls that must fight. 
report Recommended by werewolfme2
Both series involve the main male protagonist having 2 appearances while having the same memory (For Mago it's a while before he retains his memory of his other self).

And.... the male guy has a crush on a girl who likes his other self, and the girl thinks that the other self is his friend.

Differences: Mago is youkai-related while Kampfer focuses on ecchi and fighting between 2 sides: red and blue.
