A Campione – a Godslayer – is a supreme ruler.
Since he can kill a celestial being, he can therefore call on the sacrosanct, divine powers wielded by the gods.
A Campione – a Godslayer – is a lord.
Since the power to kill a deity is in his hands, he therefore looms over all mortals on Earth.
A Campione – a Godslayer – is a devil.
Since of all mortals who live in the world, none can assume a power to match his!
The gods and goddesses appearing in the legends of mankind since the beginning of time rarely descend to earth. Having lost the restraint of their legends, those gods willfully wander the earth and bring disaster wherever they go. We magicians call those gods "Heretic Gods". Man cannot go against god. Even if you gathered all of mankind's power and wisdom, it would still be far from matching a heretic god. But there are also those comparable to the gods on this earth. They are godslayers. While being human, they murdered a god and stole a part of their sacred authorities. We call those seven people campione.
Kusanagi Godou, a 16-year-old boy who played in the senior league as catcher and fourth hitter - that is, the cleanup - when he was in Junior High. However, an injury put an end to his baseball career. Though that was not the end for him. During the spring break of his third and last year in Junior High, he got involved in an adventure and ended up slaying one of the Heretic Gods, Verethragna. Thus, he became the youngest - and seventh - Campione.Now that he is a Campione, a godslayer, the young Godou must defeat the troublemaking gods, with the help of his followers!
Because of this, Godou now has the powers of the god he killed.
Godou, of course, wants nothing to do with the world in question
, but he also has a rather strong sense of justice. Unable to simply turn a blind eye to those in need, he uses his new found powers to fight Heretic Gods
, other Campione
, and random bad guys
And along the way, he gets surrounded by several girls. All of whom try and pull him deeper into the world of Magic.
