Even a Pacificist Can Kill a God: Campione! Anime Review

Introduction

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 eager female followers. After all, they’re just there to aid him in his demigod duties, right? So why is it that the demonically manipulative sword-mistress Erica Blandelli, seems to have such a devilish interest in encouraging some VERY unorthodox activities?

Review

Another Harem anime that debuted during this very HOT summer of 2012, and with this anime in the lineup just made it all the hotter. The animation is great with fantastic battles that were interesting and admirable at times. The sound was decent along with mediocre music. The characters were all very predictable but still likeable. This is a very standard harem anime with not many differences aside from plot & story. This anime though did at times like to get very steamy… very very steamy. This is a good watch for not only some intense action but for other intense things as well.

Campione! slays the review scoring god and receives a 4 Dashes of Battle out of 5.

4/5
