The first ep wasn't that bad...but seems like the series will be really fansevice centered

The manga is fanservice too. The story isn't going to win awards for depth of plot or character development but it is fun to read/watch. I do have to say Male Natsuru's voice seems very young for the body. It is a little jarring at first.

Unfortunately like most gender bending stories it's just a gimmick for the plot. There's no real significance to the change in gender, he just has to do it "because the higher powers said so". Other than that it's just used for the usual awkward humor and gender jokes (seriously people there is no mystery behind how women use the toilet...).

Well, at least it's entertaining. Really, can't ask for more than that.

I like a bit of realism in most of my shows or some sort of explanation but this was just way too much. Than you got a scene with him as a girl almost completely undressed yet again no pantsu.. this show doesn't know if it wants to be ecchi or not just ruining it.. no wonder I read other places this show is crappy.
Pantsu? Is that what you're worrying about? Would that make the show better for you?!? - If you mean gg's comments, they're always subbing the "shittiest" shows, all the time. Your own fault if you listen to what they write there.

What you see is what you get. This isn't going to be a "great" anime by all means, but at least for those people who are in for some easygoing fun, it's got a guilty pleasure appeal. Essentially, it will turn into a reverse harem: Natsuru will come under hot pursuit from the other girls, while the one he is really interested in (Sakura), falls for his female form, hard. Till the later novels, this is what the show will be about - and if that's too little for you, fair enough, but you won't get happy with it.

Most likely due to budget saving, they went with just one seiyuu for both the male and female part. Inoue Marina is usually a good pick for this, though I'm sure I have heard more convincingly male interpretations from her. As you mention, Natsuru does sound childish for a high schooler.

It was a quite random first episode, with lot of disconnected sequences and events. Though it was funny and I didn't regret watching it. I liked the puns on the seiyuu, though fortunately they stopped just at the point where they were about to become repetitive.
Horie Yui's performance was the most outstanding, switching from Ayu Ayu mode to crazy psycho mode like that. Serious lols (although very predictable) at Sakura falling in love with the female version of Natsuru . About the ... happenings, I'm willing to bet it wasn't Sakura who attacked them in the library, but rather the Seito Kaichou, whom probably wears a red bracelet as well.

All in all, mindless fun. I'll watch at least another 1-2 episodes before deciding what to do with this series.

I think the two most important factors to the anime so far for me are Akane and Akane. As for the show in general, let's just say I'm at least leaning towards watching the next episode.

Why no one talking about the tiger's voice? God! It's horrible. It's so freaking gay! They should have used a manly voice.

Out of all the male character's she has voiced in the past, only one of them wasn't a small boy, so that explains why people may think Natsuru's male voice sounds a bit young. Still a like Inoue Marina's job here.

I enjoyed this first episode very much. It's just mindless fun, and i'll expect it for what it is and fully enjoy it. Quite like the seiyuu jokes, along with that random Mobile Suit one. Hope they can keep them up.

i was going to say totally wrong voice for the guy but i guess it makes sense if he is going to be turning into a girl. I approve of all said fanservice.

Wasn't bad but I feel like something is missing..... hope it's just because it's a 1st episode.
one more thing though..... those stuffed animals are disturbing somehow......
EDIT: Forgot to mention that I really like that not only Natsuru who get to transform and change their appearance does this happen to all Kämpfers ?

The best part of all is that THERE IS YURI!!! YAY!

The storyline is ridiculous but hilarious. I claim Akane as my waifu!

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

watched the raws, but is it just me, my source, or my system that the animation style looked like something out of the 90's? but with today's standard specs of course,

I thought they were the best part.

Seems to be fan-service with a ridiculous premise, but it was entertaining enough for what it is. Not sure if I'll watch more.

I can see where you're coming from. It does help that the premise is very much like a 90s anime, which isn't a bad thing at all.

Besides the two Gundam references and the 4th wall breaking seiyuu jokes, the first episode did not impress me. I'll give the show a few more episodes but I wouldn't be surprised if I end up dropping it.
