It seems that Natsuru is just a toy for the girls to play around with for their own purposes. Poor guy.

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.

Mah, Natsuru missed his chance with Akane at the bedroom!!! But this isn't going to go any higher than that, especially with his obliviousness

I must admit I liked those White Kämpfer girls, I actually thought they would be more evil.
To bad Rika wasn't with them. xD

But Akane and Mikoto are still my favourite girls in this show so far.

whooo, the Shizuku ship is sailing!! Mikoto was great this ep too. meanwhile, Sakura... *shakes head* she's a lost cause. i think the show will turn out to something along the lines of the kampfers vs the moderators.

anywho, more Shizuka next week? yes please.

No, not sarcasm. Personally, Maburaho >>> Void >>> Kempufer, so I definitely want him to work harder on that. (One big point is the difference in the illustration. Definitely E-ji over whoever is doing this's illustration)
Maburaho is a light novel series that got an manga and anime adaption. For more info, check Wikipedia. The art in the novel is drawn by E-ji, famous for not drawing panties on the female characters. AKA, don't mistake it for Mahoraba.
Check out the anime version. The manga... is considerably... bad. The novel is the best, of course, but there is no English translation.

It's a comedy harem with occasional traces of drama. Modern times setting, but there's magic - and the male lead, Shikimori Kazuki, visits a magic academy there. Respect for magicians is earned by having a high number of activation times for magic spells, and the male lead is the typical grey mouse wuss with only 8 activations (means that he can cast only 8 spells before he turns into dust). However, because the probability is extremely high that his future _offspring_ might be insanely powerful, his _genes_ suddenly become very valuable. Naturally, this leads to him being aggressively pursued by the school idols and detested by his envious classmates. The usual hijinks ensue.

Show aired around 4-5 years ago, production values can't compare to modern anime. I liked the show because it had an interesting mix, good characters and occasional dramatic arcs. However, it's mostly "issue of the week" style and only few long-reaching developments.

I'd give it a 7/10. If you like this kind of genre, give it a shot, but don't force yourself if you don't.

Well Maburaho was quite bad in the sense that when it did get serious it would then go and gainax the entire thing which pretty much destroyed anypoint to the drama, except to jerk the reader around.

That was a very nice twist at the end of the episode. And quite unexpected, at least in my case, as I'm not familiar with the source material.

Overall, episode 9 was a really good, solid, zany episode. Seeing Sakura cheer on Natsuru (male)/Shizuku made for a bit of a change of pace... so did Shizuku really going for the kill as it pertains to winning over Natsuru.

What I also liked with this episode is that it felt to me like the Kampfer conflict plot and the romance plot have converged and intertwined nicely here.

Some veils were lifted a bit with this episode... and at this juncture in the anime, that was pretty exciting to me.

All-told this was probably my favorite Kampfer episode yet.

i hope that when natsuru wakes up from sakura's hypnotic spell, he'd realize the other 3 girls are much better option since they don't have a problem with his male self. sakura said some really mean things to him, and if he doesn't change and choose someone else, then he's obviously brain damaged beyond repair.

I really like Akane. She's so shy, and always thinking that everything Natsuru says has an sexual undertone -- it's pretty hilarious and cute.

HAHA! The Gurren Lagann reference made me laugh.
At least I THINK it was a reference. I'm not sure one way or the other. Akane did say "aniki" after all...

Anyway, this was a really funny episode. Can you say "FANSERVICE"? Rofl.

Mentar, you stop trying to attack me will you.NOW.Drop it or i'll report it.I'm disabling my rep.

And Maburaho and Kampfer can be compared despite being different i say.But that's just how I think,and it matters only to myself.I am simply sharing with everyone.



..........And i cannot express how i actually think of this story?Just because it does not fit well with you?Fine then, since you apparently dont want me sharing my thoughts here, i'll gladly just take some measures to stop spoiling your fun.

I know very well what i see is the truth for myself and only for myself.
And i'm not even looking at it harshly and seriously when i come to look at it.I actually stuck with it through and i dont regret it sticking with it through untill its finished.I GAVE it a chance.But its still a fact that it isn't that great to me.

I might understand your view someday, but i still think if the story is able to give me this kind of impression, it isnt right.
I thought this place was quite accomodating different kinds of fans and opinions, but guess i was wrong.

Hi, I would like a bit of clarification on the White gunner Kampfer. The character page on TV Tropes says her weapon is an IWI Uzi, but as I'm watching ep9 right now, I can CLEARLY see her weapon is an Ingram MAC-10 or MAC-11. Is this a case of mis-identification or is this a discrepancy between the anime and the novel and the manga?

I remember on wikipedia say it is MAC-10 long time ago. May be TV Tropes mis-identificated it .

It is a MAC-10, not an Uzi. See 12.56 and 14.44 for details.

I'm just wondering what prompted the troper to identify it as an Uzi at least WEEKS in advance of this episode. He must have been following the manga/novel and thus could be a disrepancy between mediums rather than mis-identification.
