Campione! Fanservice Review Episodes 01-02

SonanGremory here with a new review, This time is Campione turn, a non-nude harem anime with one of the hottest and tempting blondes as the main girl.

Anime Info

Campione! aired during the Summer 2012 season, a Fantasy/Harem anime with some mythology and really nice kisses in it.

Synopsis from MAL:

Some people suddenly find religion, but for 16-year-old Kusanagi Godou, it’s that REALLY old time religion that’s found him! As the result of defeating the God of War in mortal combat, Godou’s stuck with the unwanted position of Campione!, or God Slayer, whose duty is to fight Heretical Gods whenever they try to muscle in on the local turf. Not only is this likely to make Godou roadkill on the Highway to Heaven, it’s also a job that comes with a lot of other problems. Like how to deal with the fact that his “enhanced status” is attracting a bevy of overly-worshippy female followers. After all, they’re just there to aid him in his demi-godly duties, right? So why is it that their leader, the demonically manipulative sword-mistress Erica Blandelli, seems to have such a devilish interest in encouraging some VERY unorthodox activities? Get ready for immortal affairs, heavenly harems and lots of dueling deities taking pious in the face as the ultimate smash, bash and thrash of the Titans rocks both Heaven and Earth.

Episode 01

Episode starts with a nice view of the Italian city

First encounter between Erica and Godou, she tries to steal the Grimoire from him as it could be used for “bad things”.

Hearing Yoko Hikasa talking in Italian was delightful.

However, they are interrupted by the sudden emergence of a God.

After getting ready for combat Erica quickly runs to face him..just to see how the god quickly dissapears.

She then decides to go with Godou to deliver the tablet stone.

They finally arrive at Lucretia’s house.

Good way to welcome the guests Lucretia. 😍

Godou and his Grandfather sure were lucky!

After seeing the stone Lucretia decides to give it to Godou, the stone is capable of stealing a God authority. After that she invites our main duo to spend the night at her house.

Drunk Erica was funny and cute at the same time.

Godou carries a drunk Erica to her room then she starts to strip….

How can a man control himself in this situation?

After waking up Erica wants to kill Godou. (At least you should have do anything apart from looking if you are gonna die after..)

Luckily for Godou, the Heretic God appears again.

After stealing one of the God’s authorities,specifically the Golden Sword,a sword that can cut trough divinity itself(how convenient no?) and a kiss from Erica to trigger the activation conditions, Godou managed to defeat the him and become a Campione!

 

Episode 02

A Mysterious girl tells Godou that he has become a Campione after killing Verethragna and that she will follow him closely.

You shouldn’t be scared of waking up and see a naked woman in your bed, just enjoy!

Nice body Erica has 😍

We are in Godou’s house now with Shizuka asking how her brother ended coming back with an Italian beauty.

Dat cleavage.

C’mon you cant be that beta, look at them!

That’s it!

Erica joins Godou’s class and of course she has to sit next to him.

Mariya first apparence, she’s so cute.

Erica can be cute when she wants , nice lips too.

 

Omake

 

Thoughts

Although non-nude i really enjoyed Campione since i always liked Mythology,  it was nice to see a Harem with some Myth spice and decent romance.

Service is often separated from the fights and episode 01 is a good proof of that. Erica is just the perfect girl to compensate for a beta main character. Fortunately he changes a bit as the series progresses
