How come it feels like Sakura is about to call out "Tsukune!" there?

And anyone think Shindoh Naomi would work for Shizuku? Obviously I want Tanaka or Shizuka voicing her, but Shindoh might be acceptable as a last resort. Let's hope for good news.

Really? I don't feel any Moka vibe from her.

I thought the girls didn't change appearance with their Kampfer forms just personality.

Oh well not really a big change.

Hmm, it differs with each girls. Some change their appearance(some only a little like hair color change, some can change completely), some change their personality.

So it's this fall. I've read through the novel, and this could be interesting, I just hope the anime won't change the storyline from novel. Has there been any news how many episode this anime gonna be?

We don't even know all the important VAs yet, so there's no way we would know that.

It's hard to imagine it having more than 13 episodes though...

No news on VA yet even though it's gonna air this fall? 13 episode seems too short to cover anything important, unless they plan to cut lots of the original material. Oh well, we'll just have to watch before judging ^^

There's still about a month before airtime. Plenty of time for the necessary information to appear.

Why? Because first of all, even though the basic premise looks terribly simple (fighters subdivided in Zauber/Caster, Gewehr/Gunfighter and Schwert/Swordswomen), the main catch is kinda silly (male lead turning into a female to fight) and the speaking stuffed toy kinda makes me want to carve it up... it does have its moments. Also, I liked the art. So I tried to find out more, and what I was able to dig up piqued my interest.

First of all... based on what I've seen from the novels, the main focus doesn't seem to be on endless fighting, it seems to be more of a highschool action comedy with quite some romance elements. And the Natsuru male/female setup leads to quite interesting relatiohships. Here's a spoiler-protected relationship chart from novel 3:

Spoiler:


Over the course of the 11 novel volumes, we seem to get an interesting "inverse" setup of a harem. The lead Natsuru in his 2 forms becomes the target of affection for a number of girls with very strong personalities and forceful attitudes, particularly in their Kämpfer form. And judged by the number of animations from the novels, they don't take "no" for an answer and take no prisoners ^_^


From Natsuru's point of view, he develops a strong crush on the School Idol Kaede, who in return also falls for Natsuru - unfortunately only in his female Kämpfer form. We'll also have alot of other girls pining after him, but unlike other Harems, not of googly-eyed adoring girls, but rather slightly predatory bishoujos who go after him without remorse. So, in a way, you can pity Natsuru... or get mad at him for being so incredibly lucky. At least, iit seems to be a very refreshing divergence from the usual.
I feel pity for Natsuru because:
1.His feeling to Kaede is returned but not with usual style
2.He's being owned once she meet Shizuku, even slightest resist is Futile
3.Must deal with kampfer fight things which is so complicated because Love

Akane: When she kiss you again, kill her with your flame will you!
Natsuru:I can't, she didn't emitting fighting intent, but there more scary intent I feel like she want to swallow me alive
Shizuku: (suddenly appeared behind and knock Akane off) )My!My! look like you figured out my intent
Shizuku: (leaning over Natsuru, Cowgirl style) then..ITADAKIMASU!
Natsuru:!!!!!! (HELP ME!!!)
*Natsuru being raped*

Ahahaha, the aggresive girl is devoted to him in her own way:P And I realy hate Natsuru.. Won't go into spoiler here but if this is really just 13 episode, I guess we won't see the reason why I hate Natsuru in the first season.

I like Nazuka Kaori, though I never would've thought she would be Shizuku. Wonder what voice she would use.. I can't really think of her playing a similar character before... but I'm sure she can pull it off.

from what world?, game? only Blade of Chaos come to mind, but it's not really an explosive, but it sure can send a Minatour away to the sky

Nazuka Kaori doesn't seem so bad, but as mentioned above, hard to imagine her in the role of Shizuku.
