Just watched first episode of Campione!:
Kusanagi Godo is a 16-year-old high school boy, who once killed the god "Verethragna" and acquired the title of "Campione (god killer)" when he was 15. Erica Brandelli is a 16-year-old Italian girl, who is a "Great Knight" of the magic society "Bronze Black Cross" and had fought together with Godo to defeat Verethragna. Godo doesn't like fighting but his title of "Campione" makes him get involved in battles against other Campiones and uncontrollable gods.
So yeah how is the first episode? Pretty damn awesome I have to say! It focuses on Goudou meeting Erica, learning about heretic gods and getting involved with Verethragna (God of Light who REALLY likes to fight), we learn about Godou power to steal gods power, some hilarity ensues between our main characters and the episode ends with them getting into middle of a duel between gods and Godou becoming Campione.
It's a pretty solid first episode, it manages to establish the setting and characters pretty well, we get some humor and action and it ends on particularly awesome cliffhanger that left me waiting for the next episode.
The setting looks interesting, it has this urban-fantasy felling that reminds me of To Aru.
The characters seem pretty solid. Godou is instantly likable and has promise for real badassery while Erica.. well you see. Honestly speaking I was expecting another out-of-the-mold Magical-GF-Tsundere, and while she has some of that, she for sure managed to positively surprise me.
Will I keep watching Campione! ? Hell yeah I will! :cool:
Do I recommend it? If you like Action/Fantasy with liberal doses of humor and maybe some romance, check it out.
Interested in your input guys! Discuss away!
