2-part follow-up to Kämpfer romantic comedy battle anime

North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it licensed the Kämpfer für die Liebe anime project. The 2011 two-episode anime will be available later this year on subtitled DVD and through digital outlets.

The story of Toshihiko Tsukiji's original Kämpfer light novel series centers on Natsuru Senō, an ordinary high school boy who discovers that he has been involuntarily chosen to participate in battles as a "Kämpfer." Moreover, he must have the body of a girl to use his powers in battle.

The light novels previously inspired a television anime series, for which Kämpfer für die Liebe serves as a follow-up project. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released the first anime series also.

Yasuhiro Kuroda (Modern Magic Made Simple) returned to direct Kämpfer für die Liebe at Nomad with series script supervisor Kazuyuki Fudeyasu. Other returning staffers include character designer Mariko Fujita (Rosario + Vampire), sound director Yasunori Ebina (BTOOOM!), and musical composer Tatsuya Katou (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere).
