How I discovered Kämpfer : Friends Recommendation

Plot: Waking up as a girl might be some guys’ fantasies, but when the suddenly effeminatized Natsuru is told that he’s a Kämpfer, one who fights other Kämpfers in female form, his life becomes a nightmare! Putting aside the obvious plumbing issues, Natsuru’s best friend has a crush on his new body. Not complex enough? His school has separate sections for boys and girls, so he’s now double enrolled. Hormones and fists will fly as the new gender-blender defender must become a contender or die!

Review:  Kämpfer is a fun and unpredictable series. The story focuses on Natsuru for a majority of the series. It has its fun moments with stress-relieving scenes of nonsensical situations but finds a way to gravitate to the plot at the end of each episode. New characters keep the series from going stale as the series progresses. The mysteries in this series keep it intriguing and the endings per episode had me clicking to see what happens next.

My Grade: 4/5 “Loved it”
