When Kampfer opened, a few people blogged that it "was like a stupid [version of] Ranma" — a very natural misconception, given what they knew about the premise. But even so I knew we will not see another Ranma again. Anime changed too much. As I wrote in the little teatrise on the topic, back then even the basic concepts such as "harem" and "tsundere" were not well understood by the creators. And no matter how good it becomes, Kampfer will not run for 7 seasons.
One good thing came out of Kampfer's success though: I am willing to keep an open mind about an anime adaptataion of "Oto x Maho".
