The show is horrible, but most of the time it seems to know that and run with it to hilarious effect. I never expected much from it, but was consistently pleasantly surprised by it's self-awareness and Shizuku (who deserves her own bullet point for saving the show). The second half of 11 sucked though, with no qualifications. It took the plot too seriously and played the harem comedy too straight. I can see that they had to wrap it up quickly, but I won't pretend that that was even mildly enjoyable. Which is sad, because I usually watch Kampfer with a permanent smirk on my face.

I don't really see what the problem is with this weeks episode. I mean it's not like we were actually going to get an ending, and instead this episode went down the path it was expected to, and did a very enjoyable job. It was a very fitting conclusion.

Ode to Joy by the plushies was a brilliant, absolutely brilliant. That was easily hands down the best moment of the whole series.

The extra episode looks like it'll be a blast, so i'm looking forward to that.

& personally the way i see it, the show was silly fluff from start until finish. If people wanted to check out this series, and keep that in mind, the it's a blast of a watch.

My rough prediction for the ending:

1) The Purples will somehow manage to free Natsuru from the Mindlock

2) Natsuru will understand that the other girls actually do love him and be seriously unsettled. He'll be less suspicious of Shizuku and quite affected by her, but still scared

3) Shizuku will probably come out as "primus inter pares" and simply declare him to be her BF. At the same time, she will not try to forbid the other girls from pursuing him (she's more of a "feel free to play around as long as you know where home is" character anyway), and that's what they will do.

4) No resolution whatsoever to the whole Kämpfer business.

This resolution would allow for a possible S2 if the author decides (due to fans or sales demands) to continue the story.
It's pretty scary that you posted this before the episode aired and it was pretty spot on about the ending. All you needed to add was some corny singing by the animals.

Wow, I have just been lurking this thread the whole season, but I'm surprised at the backlash that the finale got. I don't know the light novels, but I almost saw the harem ending and non-resolution coming the moment evil Kaede appeared.

Then again, maybe it's because I didn't have any expectations for this show whatsoever. A harem show with a gender switch to make it Yuri. For something like that, I don't think it did too badly.

Ep11 must be one of the most terrible episode in this season.

Shizuku saves the show to the state that it is watchable. I'm sure that I can't watch it without her.

The 2nd part was not too bad... when I mute the audio, lol
Also, I actually thought that the rabbit was a male, with the foul mouth and all that, turns out to be a female (from the eyecatch)
The final scene of the preview with Shizuku smiling like just... look weird..

I think a rule needs to be passed to Studios...

Do not animate unfinished Manga or Light novels.

the staff made this episode must be drunk while doing it, and probably thinks christmas is next day

kids, don't drinking on the job


anyways, if they didn't rush the last 8 min and instead, expand the second half(starting from the roof top fight between purple vs white) all the way though the next episode(instead of giving us a "bonus" christmas special), then it probably be a lot better. i'd rather watch them solve the problem(even if it's far from perfect) than rush+more fan servicing.

It doesn't mean that I'm saying it doesn't have it's own faults, but I liked it for what it is and I shouldn't really judge the series as a whole just by a half an episode. Besides, we've still got one more episode to go, no? Even if it looked like a Christmas special or something, it might be something we were not expecting, just like this episode.

As I said before, it wouldn't really be surprising if this was done on purpose for the sake of publicity while giving us "new material" at the same time. Seeing as each manga volume takes quite a while to get published and the novels won't get translated anytime soon, I suppose after the 12th episode, many people (including me) will forget about Kampfer and move on.
till the re-make or 2nd season come ( yes, I am selfish now )

I don't read the manga but it seems that it turn like Gonzo with Rosario Vampire omg ...
Fanservice ftw huh
I don't think there'll be a re-make (chance 0,01%) maybe a 2nd season (depends if the audience was enough )

I think that turning them into anime also promotes the series. Sometimes (or many?), it's not that the studio want to animate the series but the publisher are the one who sponsor the studio to do it. This actually increases the sale for the manga or novel.
