Sentai Filmworks announced the acquisition of Kämpfer ~ Für die Liebe today, with plans to release the two-episode followup through digital outlets and on subtitled DVD later this year.
The original TV series' director Yasuhiro Kuroda (Modern Magic Made Simple, Chocotto Sister) returns to helm the episodes, with Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger, Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life) on series composition, Mariko Fujita (Rosario + Vampire) on character design, and Yasunori Ebina (BTOOOM!) on sound direction.
Sentai sums up the series in the press release:
Natsuru used to dream of being a lady killer. Instead, he got turned into a Kämpfer - a lady who’s supposed to fight and kill other girls in mortal combat! Now, he’s stuck splitting his/her days between being a typically average Japanese boy and a very untypical Japanese girl. And to make matters even more complex, Natsuru’s allowed him/herself to be convinced to move in with three other gorgeous Kämpfers, who are definitely all woman all of the time, for their “mutual defense.” Of course, the fact that more than one of them may have less than honorable designs upon one or the other of his/her two alternate sexualities couldn’t possibly be a problem, could it? Of course it could, and things really get hopping when Natsuru has to take a job at the Bunnygirl Café and ends up in the hot box! Getting in touch with your feminine side’s a full-contact, no-holds-barred, Amazon action-fest as feelings are bared and titans clash in Kämpfer für die Liebe!
