stripping girls down with attacks and power-ups were already awful, and then the dolls project themselves in the air and sings... the last 10 min was really rushed and terrible. also sakura+white team's exit was just lame.

and why is natsuru thinking of the moon and the stars when the girls are still fighting over him at point-blank range?!?!?!

however because the first half was good, overall this episode was just some-what bad. so meh, i seen worse ones recently(eg. kiddy girl-and epi 6).

oh and:
+for the girls' transformation around half-way
Just saw the subs as well.

Yeah, the first half was along the lines of the previous episodes. Then the last 10 minutes, I had to shut off my brain. Maybe it'll be better if I was drunk.

I just have to rant...

You know, I am usually very lenient for moe/fanservice series. I know their purposes, and I love every one of them; I am not going to apologize for liking them. Silliness is fine, as long as you have a back story as a skeletal frame.

But this...this takes the cake. It has been a while since a series' ending leave me speechless. This is like watching Plan 9 on MST3000's bad...no it's like watching Dragonball z Evo bad. Absolutely mind blowing, it is. The closest one for the past year is Macross F 'concerto finale', but using that as comparison is like beating a dead horse, so I digress.

I don't mind the Christmas jingle, but for gawd's sake, if you are going to go the cheesy route, go the whole way. Make it chessy, make it outlandish, make it so ecchi that it will give males from 5 to 85 hardon; but no, they just have to cram so many scenes into this episode. For example, what was up with the 'fighting scene' (or lack of)? From what I remember from the novel, the fighting usually go on for longer than 10 seconds. At least make the cutting seems intelligent.

For a fleeting moment I thought I was watching a TMA production.

Finally, I am not the only one who think that apparently. 2ch was(is?) having a riot over this.

http://blog.livedoor.jp/insidears/ar.../52105192.html

The studio...it takes exceptional size balls and a few well placed batting to the head to come up with this. I applaud, I really do applaud...I have to...I was entertained, after all...

They were definitely thinking, "how can we possibly resolve everything in 8 minutes; by having him break free of the mind lock and having two battles to do it."

It makes sense if they didn't really care about wanting to keep the story sane for a possible s2 or ova (the thought of which would enforce some level of accountability) and instead just wanted to wrap it all up in a flashy way. But yea, they tried to put everything in at the end including a pyrotechnics show. The last 8 minutes just can't be taken seriously no matter how it's discussed.

well lets recount:
1. Sakura loses (and so, indirectly, Ranka loses) +2
2. Shizuku plays an important part in the turnaround +1
3. Battle was absolutely retarded on all levels -1
4. Powerup by stripping +1
5. Stripped into ugly uniforms except Shizuku ± 0
6. Singing stuffed animals -1
7. Next ep has Sakura in it -2
8. Sakura isn't dead -5

thus: episode gets a -5

true Princess Lover went up, up, then just plummeted to a unique type of bad

there is one more ep to go but it looks like its just one of those filler eps that contibute nothing to the overall plot type episode. but i really hope i am wrong

on the plus side of Kampfer it was a pretty enjoyable season also at least in the last episode each main love interest (excluding Sakura because she is a whore bag) had some type of phisical interaction with Natsuru. also at least now Natsuru knows 100% about how each girl feels for him and there is no more second guessing about who likes him and now it all rests on his shoulders about the decision.

but in the small chance of him still second guessing how the girls feel for him he as a man he should hand in his penis as it will never get used by him

So, is Kampfer any good? I was going to watch it this weekend until I saw this on gg subs:

Kampfer has been better than our initial impression of it because it has been consistently bad, unlike other shows which tricked you into thinking they would be better then turned out to be complete shit. It’s p. much impossible to rage at something when your expectations were 0 to begin with. So thanks, Kampfer. Thanks for consistently being terrible.

ultimately its all about what you enjoy or dont mind. as for me i enjoy the show because its one you can watch to relax while at the same time have a decent laugh and a perv. i would reccomend it but dont expect and mentally challenging plot.

Then I will probably save Kampfer for rainy days... I guess I will watch Blood+, Kaze no Stigma or Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ instead.

Cheers.

*shrug*

Koda is just being childish again. That's all.

Common consensus is that Kämpfer was quite decent in the first 4 eps, got _really_ good from 5 to the first half of ep11, and then they decided to troll everyone.

I think I'll just pretend that the second half of ep11 didn't happen and be quite happy with the rest, waiting for the novels to finish and the manga to catch up.

Really?

Sources would be welcome. And naturally he'd be pissed. Essentially, the second half was a total trollsub. This is the kind of stuff which is killing franchises, and if I had created Kämpfer, I'd sue the retard who did it ^_^;

Ok there better be some good fanservice next episode! >=(

I'm starting to think that the entire mahou shoujo scene is just basically saying that anything past this point is complete and utter crap.

....*snerks*...I guess I'm not too bothered by it since I didn't have any loft ambitions for this series to begin with...

What the hell did I just watch? Sure, this series wasn't a masterpiece, but that ending was wrong by any standard. All of my complaints about episode eleven have already been listed, but I just have to post for catharsis. The stars were out tonight, but my eyes were too full of tears to see anything...

This anime is so bad, it's good. I'd even watch it again, just because it's that much of a guilty pleasure. Yeah that's right, I admit it. This anime was a guilty pleasure and worth every minute of vacant thought I spent on it.

The final part with Ode to Joy was frankly the hardest I've laughed at an anime in a while. It was so over the top ridiculous that any possible rage you can level at the plot is thrown out the window when you ponder the total acid trip the studio had producing it.

And really, who watched this for any serious plot? It's a story about a trap, stuck in a harem, with people constantly flaunting their assets. Oh there was fighting? I assumed the whole Kampfer thing was just a ruse to get women into provocative poses moaning suggestively to string along twelve episodes of assault on male hormones.

Thank you Kampfer, for being the most entertaining terrible show of season.
