Quote:

The story is about Natsuru Senou, a normal high school boy. Well, he use to be normal until one day he woke up as a girl! A stuff tiger tells him he is part of a tournament between magical female fighters called Kampfer; Each divided into three classes: Zauber/Caster, Gewehr/Gunfighter and Schwert/Swordswomen.

Having no idea what to do, he(or should i say she;)) takes part in this tournament against the other female Kampfers. But it's not going to be easy, as not only he has deal with the tournament & use to being a girl but also his complicated love life. How complicated is it? Complicated that a lot girls are in love with both his male & female form, and want to get their man/woman in anyway & they don't take "No" for an answer.:heh:
Currently there are 12 light novels for this series, a manga adaptation which is currently in 2 Volumes done by mangaka Tachibana Yu & an anime adaptation which you can find more about at this anime thread

Manga Covers:



When you read this manga, all of you readers, whether you are male or female, will be attracted to Natsuru!:D
You can't help it. She/he looks cute & dare i say, has the right sizes :Dlol. (I bet you're questioning your sexuality right now.)
With nice action, comedy & a very interesting love triangle, this manga is one of my favorites.

I have read the 3 scanalated chapters and I really do like it.

Bonta Kun 2009-06-02 12:43

Its genderbending at its best, pure and simple:D

Love this series, just totally rocks!

Rocks so much I can't pick a fav character cause they all are just awesome!

but then mysterious allure of the genderswapped Natsu-chan really pulls me in the most:p

odd that Kampfer doesn't have it's own thread until now..

Yeah, I'm surprised, too.

The chapters so far are enjoying.

ZeroForever 2009-06-02 14:30

well not really that surprising as with only 2 manga chapters translated there wasn't much to go on, considering the huge grace period between each translation as well. This technically the is the 2nd thread, as the first one is the general anime one (which is more light novel discussion regardless)

it's entertaining so far, nothing amazing but it's a fun 'yuri' romp.

Tiberium Wolf 2009-06-02 15:08

3 ch translated.

Mentar 2009-06-02 15:32

Well, it's not just the "yuri" aspect - the relationship triangle is going to get pretty complicated in the long run.

Spoiler for very mild relationship spoilers:


So, unlike other genderbender stories, this one is clearly more mixed, and very NON-dependent on the usual googly-eyed "onee-samaaaaa" adoration type shoujo-ai. Pretty enjoyable indeed!

Hot gender bender > Cute gender bender.

Had to remind myself that Natsuru's a guy. BTW, Akane pissed off form FTW.

yongshun 2009-06-04 22:33

Chapter 4 scans is out a little action going on in this one and Natsuru kinda pretty much saved Akane in this chapter.

Bonta Kun 2009-06-05 00:09

ch 4 is out!

... I'm a bit disappointed Sakura likes Girl!Natsuru.

Note that I'm emphasizing Girl!Natsuru here.

I'm kinda surprised that Shizuku didn't seem to leave a lasting impression on you folks ;)
Well, that's fine. More fun for me :->

And hey, Sakura's _DETERMINED_ pursuit of female|Natsuru is one of the major selling points of the story to me. How often does it happen that one of the prettiest girls in a show aggressively and openly and explicitly pursues another lead (who we even know to share the sentiment), but "unsuccessfully"? I find that pretty refreshing.

Side comment: One minor inaccuracy in the translation: When Natsuru's friend (the head of the Bishoujo Research Club) yelled at him, it wasn't about "the two girls representing the school" visiting him, but about "the two top beauties of the school" ;)

Utau 2009-06-05 06:58

man, that was fast! i mean, seriously, i just read chp.03 the other day :heh:

Oh never mind..... i don't know where did i get that idea from....

Is it possible that the plushie company was trying to get sakura as a kampfer, except she went and gave them away as presents... puts one knife, one gun, and one magic in a team in the same school... cue the opposing kampfers?

That's actually a good theory!

Bonta Kun 2009-06-28 19:24

ahhh bollocks!

This was one series where I really really didn't want to look at RAWS but when I spied the 2 vols I completely caved in and went for a peek!

Only thing I can say is I've completely fallen for Natsuru-chan:eyespin:
Well I love all the characters here but Natsuru-chan takes the lead simply cause of the little ending in Vol 2

yes yes I'm a terrible person but to hell with caring!

This for me is def a fav manga right up there with Sekirei and Sekirei is like at the top!:D

me wants moar Natsuru-chan!

alamarco 2009-06-28 23:59

Just finished reading all 4 chapters. Enjoyed every second of it.

The only thing that has disappointed me is that after 4 chapters, we really don't know what the plot is. Why are the Kampfer's fighting each other?

I also have a feeling that Shizuku will switch sides. Even though her bracelet is the opponent colour, she's childhood friends with Sakura. I can't seem her and Natsuru fighting it out and killing each other with Sakura in the middle.

My favourite character has to be Natsuru and Akane. I love the gender changing as it adds so much comedy to the manga. Akane's aggressive form is also hilarious.

Oops, forgot to add: Looks at avatar, looks at Shizuku ... I like her weapon. :)
