「Jeden Tag Leben ～ひさしぶりなのでけんぷファーのちょっといいとこ見てみたい～」 (Hisashiburi na no de Kenpufaa no Chotto Iitoko Mite Mitai)
“Everyday Life ~It’s Been A While; I Want To See Some Good Parts of Kampfer~”
Despite the “For Love” German subtitle, this two-episode sequel of Kampfer is a direct continuation of the first season. Unfortunately, we were shortchanged on the more relevant first episode (thirteenth overall) due to the earthquake scheduling delays, leaving us with only the fan-service-filled second one as part of the televised broadcast. A bit of a shame since I was looking forward to seeing more of Natsuru and co. at odds with Kaede, which will now have to wait for the May 25th BD/DVD release.
Be that as it may, I’m never opposed to the more lighthearted and nonsensical harem aspect of Kampfer, especially when Shizuku is involved and making Natsuru her plaything, so this came off just like the bonus episode that it is. It was reminiscent of how the first season concluded in a similar manner, except Kaede wasn’t befittingly victimized for deceiving everyone as the innocent antagonist. Given that Shizuku was my favorite character of 2009, it’s no secret that I absolutely love how assertive she is with Natsuru, making sure that he realizes she wears the pants in their relationship. Throw in the fact that she has great dexterity with her feet and the student council president pretty much runs away with being the most alluring candidate vying for our gender bender protagonist’s heart.
I can’t say I think much of how the whole mixer party came about from Natsuru taking up a part-time job to buy a new bra that can contain her enormous breasts, but that’s exactly the setup laid out for the antics that followed. Aside from Inoue Marina-centered cameos of Rio (Rio -RainbowGate-), Matsurika (Maria Holic), and Mina (Getsumento to Heiki Mina) that took up a noticeable portion of screen captures, the footsies that Shizuku made Natsuru orgasm with were undoubtedly the highlight of the entire episode. The only thing missing was Shizuku taking a page out of Riko’s book from kiss x sis and extending an offer to Natsuru to return the favor. Probably a bit too scandalous for TBS, but I would’ve been on board for simply Shizuku’s dirty talk and satisfied reaction (assuming Natsuru could get her excited enough).
As much as I love watching Shizuku, Akane is probably right up there when she’s in her foul-mouthed Kampfer form. It’s always fun hearing Horie Yui flip that bipolar switch and make swear jar owners rich, but it’s even better when Ayane’s pressing up naked bodies with Natsuru and inadvertently feeling it. A bit of her love-struck side came out during it all, which had a very tantalizing appeal to it. I’m well aware that entire scene was just another excuse for fan-service, but I was thoroughly amused by Natsuru freaking out about Akane’s cold hard gun riding up on her. I could definitely watch more of these Natsuru x Akane situations, as they’re right up there with the Shizuku ones in terms of personal enjoyment. What can I say? I like my Kampfer assertive or feisty. Put the three of them together and it’s a party!

An ending theme by Hocchan and Yukarin? It’s a one-time comeback special of seiyuu group Yamato Nadeshiko!
is it just me or did the seiyuu change? I was fairly certain they didnt sound like that…
a fanservice episode, a bit too much but its all well because of shizuku.
and I get to say first!
Really? i didn’t sense any voice change. i guess the effect of time where some seiyuu voice other anime might have effect on them
natsuru sounds much more feminine than the last time I heard him/her and shizuku doesnt sound quite as seductive as I remember.
Shizuku never fails to amaze me. and the ending song was awesome
Good old Kampfer and its lovely NSFW-ness :3
And where the hell was Mikoto this entire time?
She was here, providing the curry and the naked apron.
soo much fan service. Nosebleed . good episode though.
A party indeed. Thanks for writing out the review, Divine. I had a fun time watching this episode.
And yes, I’ll shank anyone who misspells Shizuku.
Shizuku is the only reason I watch Kampfer, she’s awesome.
Natsuru might be a “perfect” trans-gender, but he/she hasn’t captured our hearts like another crossdresser– CHARLOTTE!!
That was too hot for me .__.! i love yuri scenes, but this was too much for me
Shizuku is enough for me to buy into anything Kampfer related. But the cameos were an amazing bonus. I just got finished watch Rainbow Gate yesterday. Rio’s appearance was so random! xD Loved it though.
Man I forgot about Kampfer I was completely blindsided.
Will they re-air Episode 13?
Watching this reminded me why I love Shizuku so much.
that episode is one of a heck of yuri, too many, good thing that Kaori Nazuka returned to the anime dubbing after the wedding.
Akane and Shizu were my favs, it felt like mikoto was just an extra.Yay more bipolar Akane 😀
Shizuku, step on me also! D’x SUKI DESUU!!!!
(Why couldn’t all of Kampfer be like this?)
Hey, new banner! From a show I actually watched!
Don’t forget the BRS x Rin cosplay action in the eyecatch. So much win!
ah Kampfer! Glad to see you are still as perverted as ever hahah so many cameo’s in this! And the BRS eyecatch very nice.
Divine, what do you think about Shizuku’s footsies? Those pokes leave her at great frame advantage, man. Great set-up to super also.
I’m a bit confused, is this supposed to be a DVD-extra episode being placed on web-cast much like the OreImo True Route episodes?
Highlight this episode has got to be Shizuku’s footjob, molesting poor Natsuru till she came… with curry sauce on her face.
Apart from that, this episode was a bit WTF hit and miss for me, compared to past Kampfer episodes.
This is a TV special.
Where are you male natsuru? Female Natsuru is cute and everything but where is the harem? lol.
Isn’t this the ” harem “?
Why the episode 13 review is lacked?
There is no that episode?
It’s right at the start of the review…

…so we have to wait another month ;_;
Oh yeeeeah I forgot about THIS sequel. – _ –

I know you can’t fit much story into a single episode, but this was just ridiculous.
good episode for those who want this but not for me >.>
Lol. didn’t notice Rio was there
Damn you Shizuku, appealing to my foot fetish =/
I appeal to that. Because I, too have a foot fetish.
That ED with the “flowers” and all
Kämpfer für die Liebe ..just for the right spelling.
Shizuku reminds me of Wang Liu Mei…
