Sentai Filmworks Announces Dub for Kämpfer Anime

posted on by Karen Ressler
Anime with gender-swapping protagonist aired in 2009

Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it will produce an English dub for the Kämpfer anime. According to the announcement, the dub is "coming soon."

The anime based on a light novel series Toshihiko Tsukiji (Maburaho). Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

Waking up transformed into a beautiful girl might be the stuff of some guys' fantasies, but when the suddenly effeminatized Natsuru is informed by a stuffed tiger that he's now a Kämpfer, a mystical fighter who has to fight other Kämpfers in female form, his life becomes a living nightmare! Putting aside the obvious "plumbing" issues, Natusru's best childhood friend turns out to swing the other way and SHE has a crush on his new female body. Not complex enough? Natsuru's school has separate sections for boys and girls, so he and she are now double enrolled. The rumor-mill has it that he's dating herself. And there are other Kämpfers attending the school who want to take her out, and he's not sure which ones mean "on a date" and which ones mean "permanently."

Director Yasuhiro Kuroda and the anime studio Nomad animated the series, which aired in 2009. Sentai Filmworks released the series on DVD in 2011 and on Blu-ray Disc in 2014.
