Kämpfer #04 — Rub, Rub, Rub

October 22nd, 2009


Lots of… uh… rubbing… this week.


So, honestly, this was another pretty poor episode, but I can’t be mad at it at all because I had a great time watching it. Maybe I was still in something of shock from Kiddy Girl, maybe I’m just in a good mood, but it was probably the social commentary. We should really do that more often. Most of the episode was about Natsuru rubbing Shizuku, Akane rubbing Natsuru, or people putting their faces waaaaaaaaaay too close than is socially acceptable. It was even more full of fanservice than last week’s episode, and next week involves a costume pagent, so I can only imagine that we’re done with the fighting for now and are heading straight into Lesbianville.

Sadly, I really don’t have too much more to say beyond that. The plot went absolutely nowhere and the episode ended almost exactly the same as last week’s, only with a concrete competition (sort of) instead of a generic "I won’t lose," and all three of Natsuru’s women are involved, although I’m pretty sure that Shizuku’s just doing it to be an instigator.

Brief Summary:

Natsuru learns that he’s being forced to participate in upcoming school female… activities, so runs off to yell at Shizuku. She manages to twist him into giving her a shoulder massage, which he kind of sucks at, and when he starts doing it without looking, he finds out that he’s been massaging Shizuku’s breasts. Akane stops by to cockblock the pair. Later, they decided that Natsuru needs to get some girly unmentionables. The offer of "Will you help me do it, Akane?" sends her off into her own lurid daydreams.

So the next day, Akane and Natsuru head off to buy frilly lingerie, since a sports bra would clearly not work. They run into Shizuku there, who can’t help but point out her obvious superiority to Akane in the field of breasts. Akane drags Natsuru off and tries to fit a bra of her own size onto him/her, unsuccessfully. Shizuku comes into the dressing room and offers to show her own breasts because Natsuru’s flipping out about his. Akane, not to be beaten, strips as well.

That taken care of, they run into Sakura who drags them all to karaoke. She wants to sing a duet, so they end up holding a contest. They’re all terrible singers and that sequence was physically painful. Shizuku and Akane leave to go to the bathroom afterwards and Sakura tries to make her move. Natsuru’s bracelet starts to wear off, so he flees and holds the door shut while Shizuku teases him until reinforcing his transformation. Akane and Sakura get into it again over Natsuru with Sakura declaring that she’ll kick ass and take names at the upcoming school shindig, ergo Natsuru’ll have to answer her feelings. Akane jumps in to ‘protect’ Natsuru and Shizuku throws her hat in too out of general spite.


Costume party.

    I don’t mind the fanservice, but I really wish they would get back to the fighting.

    Hear, hear. I’m not in this for the overdone lesbian angle, let’s get back to the asskicking!

    This episode was just a package of guilty pleasure AWESOME to digest. Shizuku is too hot for words, and she absolutely stole the ep ^_^

    What may be going on here, nau? @_@ One preview screenshot I could write off as Natsuru’s imagination taking visuals, but /two/? o.O

  • The Phantom says:

    You seriously like this crap? looks like a bad rip off of Ranma with lesbians undertones mixed into it.

  • wilson191 says:

    does anyone realize that Shizuku’s hair color changed from bright purple to a ridiculous purple colour?
