Campione

Eudemon

1,231 views

Originally from a light novel

campione

General ★★★★☆

The battle against god might seem cool but the battle character setting itself is basically retelling the ancient stories of gods (mostly Greek gods)

and this probably can amazes the first time listeners

but I already know majority of the stuff from Philosophy and Global literature classes

Story ★★★☆☆

The golden sword is really a buggy setting

and I personally hate the plot of the 2nd and 3rd followers who hesitate and keep feeling shame for a kiss

especially when it relates to the lives of them and the world

(due to the condition of use of the sword, the main char needs information about the enemy, however, our main char of course doesn't have knowledge of every detail of them so someone has to tell him, but the info amount is huge for telling by mouth or read, thanks to the usability of 'magic' they can be sent instantly, and since Campione resists to magic they have to do it by kiss/internal)

CG ★★★★☆

Battle scenes are good, the power of golden sword just reminds me of Gilgamesh from Fate stay night

and a lot fan-services

Design ★★★★☆

Above average costumes including underwear

Music ★★★☆☆

The first couple listen to the OP may not be noticeable but the melody is pretty good

Plot

Some people find religion, but for 16-year-old Godōu Kusanagi, it's religion that's found him! As the result of defeating the God of War in mortal combat, Godōu received the position of Campione, or God Slayer, whose duty is to fight Heretical Gods whenever and wherever they appear and start changing things to suit themselves, usually at the expense of the people in the area. Not only is this likely to make Godōu begin his recognition in Heaven, it's also a job that comes along with a lot of other problems. One of the problems would be to deal with the fact that his "enhanced status" keeps attracting attention and difficult girls. In particular, the demoniacally manipulative sword-mistress Erica Blandelli, who strongly and extremely forwardly expresses her love for him, which usually creates awkward and misunderstood situations for him. (Campione is the Italian word for Champion. Everyone calls God Slayers Campione as the earliest known record describing the Campione was written by an Italian, hence the Italian form is used by everybody regardless of nationality.)

I think there is a second season coming up?
