Kämpfer Anime Gets New Life
Posted August 9, 2010on:
Aaand, just when you thought that a new wave of mecha anime was going to sweep away all the ills of the anime world, we also got news over the weekend that the plotless blob of lesbians known as Kämpfer is going to have a new show.
In case you forgot, last year’s Kämpfer was based on a series of novels by Tsukiji Toshihiko, about a boy named Senou Natsuru who turns into a superpowered girl in order to fight other superpowered girls. Why they do it is never really explained in the anime series, and it is really just an excuse to get girls to shoot at each other, interspersed with scenes of them blushing at each other. It wasn’t particularly popular when it came out, but apparently it made enough fans to justify another shot at an anime. More details will be coming, probably after Comic Market this weekend.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to try and restore my faith in humanity. It may take some time.
