Kampfer: The Complete Collection (2009/Sentai Filmworks Blu-ray)

Picture: A Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: A

Natsuru wakes up one day to find out he has turned into a magical girl, a Kampfer, and he finds out he is not the only one, there are blue and red Kampfers out there battling each other. Natsuru soon finds himself surrounded by other Kampfers, but why must they fight each other (and why are there only girls), but lucky for him they rather fight over him than each other. As Natsuru tries to balance his new effeminate life, are they gonna find the mysterious moderators behind the Kampfers?

In Kampfer: The Complete Collection (2009), Natsuru just turned into a girl, good news is that he can now get close some of the hottest girls in school, bad news is that they are Kampfers too, and either want to get in 'her' panties or want him dead (and sadly they prefer him a girl than a boy). He soon become the 'new school idol' and his secret is only known by the other Kampfers. He is joined by 4 girls, Akane, Shizuku, Mikoto and Sakura. Akane is normally quiet and shy, but when she transform she becomes totally aggressive. Shizuku is the student counsel president and she becomes a total dominatrix when she transform. Mikoto is Natsuru's cousin and childhood friend. And Sakura is the girl who Natsuru has a crush on, but she is love with the 'girl' version of him.

This was a comical genderbending anime with plenty of fan-service. The Blu-ray set here includes all 11 episodes, 1 Christmas special and 2 OVAs.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image across all the episodes looks great, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo is warm, rich and has very well-rounded Pro Logic-like surrounds. Extras include clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
