Kämpfer #08 — “…Not Following You Here…”

November 19th, 2009


Thickest man alive.


This was the worst kind of episode. Nothing good enough to comment on and nothing bad enough to mock. The whole thing was just boring from start to finish. Shizuku tells Natsuru to go out on a date with her, and then spends the entire time forcing him to do ‘datey’ things with her while he thinks about other women or tries to ask her about the White Kampfers. If he had resisted more or she had just knocked him over and had her way with him in the name of making it a date, then that would have at least added a little more humor to the situation. Then, as the coup d’grace of the whole affair, once Shizuku does start talking about something actually interesting, he falls asleep, so I’m sure we’ll get to hear it again at some point. Thrilling. The best kind of exposition… the kind that you know is going to be repeated because the main character himself slept through it.

At least next week I’ll be able to comment on the swimsuit fashion sense (or lack thereof). There look like there may even be some new lesbian molesters kampfers too.


Date with Akane (and everybody else) at the pool.

    Well, it looks like I’m not watching this show.

  • Mentar says:

    I wouldn’t say that it was boring, but Natsuru’s thickness made some parts a bit hard to swallow. Essentially, it’s getting hard to understand why someone like Shizuku would actually fall for a dork like him (and show some angelic patience and tolerance while at it).

    In a way, the lead character of the “real” story is Shizuku now. Just like you said, just when she started to explain the really interesting parts (her past with the Kämpfer senpai she adored), Natsuru falls asleep.

    I’m beginning to wonder if Kämpfer might be slated for 2 seasons after all. Otherwise I can’t quite understand why the (partly pretty serious) background story is still kept out of the anime…

  • クレナイユメ says:

    What it lacks for interest/story/entertainment, it makes up for fanservice. Also, Shizuku’s probably the only reason why I still watch it.

  • Silver says:

    He should really forget about Sakura and just go for Shizuku.

    However, he may be dense but you could also think of it this way. Natsuru is someone who is in some way devoted. Even when there is someone like Shizuku around him, he still only think of Sakura. In terms of Shizuku, that is probably the reason why Shizuku is interested in him. If he was to instantly switch from wanting Sakura to her once she had kissed him, she would probably threw him like rag out the door right away. That type of man is not devoted or loyal in any way. However, even after that incident, he still only thinks of Sakura and worries about her and thus it piques her interest more.

    “Thickest man alive.” My imagination just run wild for a bit there because in itself is a very funny doublespeak in my opinion. ^_^

  • TOP2NE1 says:

    Shizuku might like him because she can wear the pants. Or maybe she thinks he’s cute. I mean to a lot of people, looks matter. (Go figure)

    Natsuru’s devoted to Sakura, which is great and all. It’s just too bad I don’t like Sakura. I mean Shizuku is way more interesting.

  • Silver says:

    @ TOP2NE1

    Yeah, I really love that Natsuru is devoted. He pretty much don’t even bat an eyelash at anyone else. But… why why why does it have to be Kaede. DAMN IT!! ROAR!!

  • redlupine says:

    why must the main love interest suck in so many anime?

  • Celestial says:


  • Gin says:

    I think he realizes he’s a loser, and can’t accept the idea that someone might like him other than Sakura.

  • Bass GS says:

    Wow! Akane goes berserk when she’s happy too.

  • happy says:

    lol anyone catch the hell girl reference?
