So is one of Goudou's new powers being a totall pimp? Or is it some kind of emergent property you gain when you can do things like make it rain golden swords and THROW A GIANT BOAR AT YOUR ENEMIES!

I mean, what the hell was that!?! He just went and destroyed the Colosseum because fuck it, if you could throw giant boars around, you would do the same! It was so awesome it gave me awesomegasm!

And man, I already love Erica. She's so wonderfully straightforward. For once we get a female lead who's honest about her feelings and acts on them instead of playing some silly games. Also I like that she's a woman with strong convictions and lots of pride but isn't holier-than-thou about it. And she has a sword and can summon a mecha lion that shoots laser beams! Awesome!

The plot thickens and we get some good foreshadowing. Will be interesting to see what's it all about and meet the other Campione. Especially the guy called John Pluto Smith-sama. Best name ever, or best name ever?

Also Hertic God attacks next week! If it's the one we met this episode then I'm betting on Athena, because of the whole owl thing.

So yeah the second episode is 10/10 and the series continues to be awesome! Will so continue to watch this.

I don't know whether to believe that We Will Meet Again.

This is still okay. I can see this as a good set up to some excellent later fight scenes.

I do really think the ex-tsundere actually falling in love was a bit sudden.

I hope one of these gods turns out to be actually interesting.

Finally got around to watching the second episode, and it was an improvement. I'm interested in seeing where this goes.

Erica's grown on me already~ Thought she fell in love with Godou a bit too quickly, but at least she's straightforward about it. It was inevitable, anyway, so it's okay. Just keep the flirting coming. Show the other harems what happens who you actually communicate feelings properly!

The main reason I'm watching though is for the fight scenes, and it does NOT disappoint. Seriously, I just saw Godou throw a metal lion. Which proceeds to turn into friggin' laser beams and ultimately a giant laser tornado thing. And Godou's response is to THROW A GIANT BOAR AT IT. And this is just the second episode!

Agreed. Erica isn't a normal tsundere like I had expected, which was a nice change of pace. The fight scene didn't exactly blow me out of the water, but it was smooth and competent even though it wasn't a 'real' fight.

Just as the spell says.
What is this series like? Saw a thread about the lead girl over on 4chan and now I am interested.

[up]You mean the thread where people gush about how perfect she is?

And Campione is... Did you watch To Aru Majutsu no Index? It's bit like that, at least in terms of the overall feel. We are just two episodes in, so the action is just starting to unfold, but it's a really promising series, which you can see from my episode reviews.

Yeah that is the one.

And okay. Is it being simulcast and if so by who?

Cheeck out Crunchyroll.

Also, on further inspection of the 4chan thread, I was once again reminded how completely awful the site is.

[up][up] The premise of the show is how the masquerade works, instead of dodging here and there like Majutsu. We get to see how someone isn't afraid to do something in the masquerade even though he doesn't want to at first. So it's different from other leads

tbf its kind of hard to maintain the masquerade when you're famous for destroying historic sites as Godou soon becomes.
That's refreshing. I hope Godou knocks down every cliche tourist site in Europe, leaving only the criminally underappreciated ruins, monuments, museums, communes, cathedrals, and their kin that never receive any meaningful attention thanks to the overshadowing influence of the Colosseum and its ilk.

Chapters 1 through 5 of Volume 3. of the light novel are now translated up at Baka-Tsuki. Worth checking out just to see what got changed, imho.

This series would be awful if it wasn't for Ridicilously Hammy Narrator.

Well, now I understand why the kiss takes so much time in the opening, and who the girl with the scythe is.

@Arilou: I hate the narration.

That he did. An ice cold loli.

I like the narration.
Kind of confusing what they are adapting and what they aren't.

They've included the scene where Erica comments on how much faster he's getting at coming Back from the Dead, which references the few monthes they where adventuring together before the start of Volume 1, but Episode 2 only mentions a week passing after the events of Episode 1.

"Hate" was probably too strong a word, but it simply felt too out of place.

[up]They were adventuring together? O_O

I just came to a realisation today. Between this and The World God Only Knows I've had far too many opportunities to use the phrase 'Grey-eyed loli of wisdom' lately.

The pacing of this show is really weird.

Why most heretic gods look like elementary school children?

I am starting to think that attracting anything with two legs and two X chromosomes is one oof Godou powers.

Erica further establishes that in addition to being a bombshell she's also an awesome fighter. Godou should stop being such a stick in the mud and enjoy the fact that his life become awesome.

That Mariya chick is annoying. don't really like those holier-than-thou characters.
