Campione News

Campione is a anime/manga concept
| |

Hello everyone! The wiki editing team and I just finish another anime project, Campione! This project only covers the episodes since we don't have much time to do them now.

We started the project on July 7, 2012, and after 13 episodes, we finished it on September 29, 2012. It was an intense project since it was the first time that my teammates and I took on multiple wiki projects on the new summer anime and older anime shows.

Please see Wiki Project and List (Campione! and WIP) for more information on the wiki pages we created just for Campione! and other things.

For those who are new to Campione!, here's a synopsis:

CAMPIONE! surrounds protagonist Godo Kusanagi, a high school student that kills a god, claiming its power and title of Campione, to slay other gods. This harem love comedy is bound to be filled with magical battles.

Via Crunchyroll

Teammates

My teammates are Daniel Newton and Sonata, and the independent wiki editors who help out in the wiki pages are FoxxFireArt and AnimeReviewDaily.

  • Daniel helps out with formatting the anime series and episode wiki pages. His character tables look awesome, and he adds anime art from the Nyantype and Megami magazines.
  • Sonata specializes in making profile images and adding powers to the characters

Supporters

  • FoxxFireArt deals with the manga and light novel portion of Campione.
  • AnimeReviewDaily is a new wiki editor who worked on the character table and Godou's page. Even he struggles with grammar, his work is greatly appreciated.

Episode Work

Since Campione was a new summer series, my priority was the episodes. With the episode summaries all added, we can work on the characters.

All episodes have a Crunchyroll synopsis except episodes 1 and 13, and I included weekly reports which helps promote discussion and the wiki.

Kusanagi Godo arrives to Italy to deliver a grimiore to a lady, Lucrezia Zora, that his grandpa has met a long time ago. He bumps into Erica Blandelli who fights a boar god and into Victor.

Plot

Welcome to the weekly Campione! report! After Ena makes her debut last episode, we had a brawl between Ena and Erica because Ena feels Godou's harem should only include Japanese women.

As Erica and Ena's fight drags out, Ena allows her sword to consume herself to defeat Erica. With Erica dying, Godou uses his Ten Avatars to save Erica with more kissing. Then, an unknown intruder attacks Godou's group.

Watch Campione! on Crunchyroll.

Verdict

Beware of Spoilers!

Bizarre

There's was not much good stuff for me in this episode, so I list the bizarre.

Meet Metis, Athena's evil twin
Meet Metis, Athena's evil twin
  • Athena and Shizuka's scene: Athena makes Godou sound like a pedophile.
  • Godou and Erica's suggestive scene: I believe it was an implied sex scene. You got Godou embracing and kissing Erica in a missionary position, and Erica has this loud moaning that sounds like she got an orgasm. It's really ridiculous.
  • Athena has an evil clone called Metis. I was wrong that Athena had eaten Perseus last time.

Euphemism Quotes

  • Godou: I will inject you with my divine protection. I imagine it'll be rough, but bear with it!
  • Erica: I can feel you inside me. It feels so warm... (the viewers are shown Erica's stomach)
Campione's biggest wtf scene - Erica's implied sex scene
Campione's biggest wtf scene - Erica's implied sex scene

Sorry for digressing and talking a lot about this strange erotic scene.

Bad

Ena's Cowgirl scene
Ena's Cowgirl scene
  • Erica's Near Death Scene:Forgive everyone, I didn't feel much sympathy or any feelings for Erica. Plus, she is back to normal after Godou's little sex scene.
  • Too much kissing: Every episode of Campione has a kissing scene, but this episode had the most kissing scene, and it had the longest one ever.
  • Typical Fan Service Physics: You got to love how Ena seemingly fall on top of Godou in a cowgirl position. Ladies just seem to fall onto Godou's lap.

This episode is decent, and the fan service along with the Godou and Erica's implied sex scene is ridiculous. How could they have time to do it before the battle with Ena? The episode's plot just didn't work out, and the action leaves a lot to be desired.

Plot

Howdy everyone and welcome to the Weekly Campione! report. This week's episode is the end of the Perseus's battle, and it sheds light on Liliana's character who we thought is a reserved tsundere. Looks like she has fallen for Godou and join his group. I didn't want to say harem, but you can say it that way.

Godou still does not have a chance to defeat Perseus unless he has some background information on his enemy. Liliana has the answers from Athena's divination, but the only way to teach the information to Godou is that Liliana has to kiss him.

Can Liliana and Godou work together to defeat Godou without kissing?

(Hell no, you guys and gals already know the pattern)

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Didn't see that coming, eh Perseus?
Didn't see that coming, eh Perseus?
  • Godou's fight with Perseus was definitely better than Duke Voban. Godou had more action since in the Duke Voban's fight, it was the girls who had the spotlight. Liliana had a good scene during the battle.
  • Kissing: If you guys and gals loved these scenes, this episode had 2 girls and a total of 6 kisses. Liliana scored 4 kisses, and it was her first time while Athena had stolen 2.
  • Athena is the most interesting girl I find so far. Even though she helped Godou and Liliana, she has a bit evilness to her.

Bad

Is that all you got, Campione? Do you have to kiss a girl to beat me?
Is that all you got, Campione? Do you have to kiss a girl to beat me?
  • Repetitive Process: I don't know about you guys, but this is quite too predictable. It's like the Duke Voban's fight. Godou has to learn information, and the only to teach the dumb guy is to have someone kiss him. It's usually a woman. It'll be weird to see a guy in future episodes. Anyways, he uses his Golden Sword and gives a history lesson . If that fails, he and his partner usually beat the enemy with their usual attacks. (I thank Sonata for pointing this out)
  • I hope Godou has some interesting powers later on to make the battles more better and less talkative. Talking is good, but it should done in moderation to make battles more exciting.
  • They should add suspense in uncovering the gods' true origins. Make us guess.

Bizarre

  • Since all the people who had info on the enemies are women, what would happen if Godou finds a man with information.
  • Why didn't Perseus just beat up Godou before he kisses Liliana?
  • In these duels, Godou always had help while the enemies are usually by themselves.

Overall, this episode is good, and for Liliana fans, you'll love it. They should do some episode previews, and I'm wondering if the next girl will show up. I'm stoked to see her.

Special Snapshots

Kissing Gallery

Yeah, I have no idea why I do this, but if I find a pattern in an episode's snapshots, I post them to make the reports more interesting. Campione! still has a lot of kissing scenes. Please enjoy this. Be lucky that Godou only needs to kiss in order to get smarter.

Interestingly, there was no French kissing

Ten Avatar Shots

I'm still collecting these shots for the wiki pages. I need to check how much we have. I didn't upload the boar shot because I think I got that one already.

Thanks

Thank you everyone for reading this report. Please support the franchise, the wiki pages, and the wiki editors.

Wiki Progress: I need to update Perseus's page and the others. Don't know if Perseus is truly dead.

Welcome to the Weekly Campione! report! Last week's episode sets up the battle between Godou and another Campione, Duke Voban. It started with a meaningless pursuit, but we got more of Yuri and Liliana's back story.

Plot

In the Campione battle between Godou and Duke Voban, Godou is at his wit's end until Yuri and Erica lend him some "help" (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

Can Godou beat Duke Voban?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

Liliana feels left out :)
Liliana feels left out :)
  • Godou and Yuri got their relationship jump started.
  • Liliana becomes an ally after Erica's strange black mail. I like her Tsundere personality and her and Yuri's reactions when Erica kisses Godou right in front of them.
  • The girls stole the spotlight from Godou. I felt they did most of the work in this episode.

Bad

Godou's Words of Power not only hurts his foes but bore them to death
Godou's Words of Power not only hurts his foes but bore them to death
  • Too Repetitive: I love how cool Godou's golden world and the swords are since the first episode. It reminds me of Archer's Unlimited Blade Works reality marble. Yet, it starts to get boring since Godou keeps doing the same thing. He has to kiss to receive information about his enemies to activate his Words of Power ability and Golden Sword. Plus, the duke is very persistent, and the process repeats twice.
  • Catfight: I know we guys have some weird fascination when two girls start beating up each other up. Yet, Erica and Liliana's fight wasn't that great. It didn't have enough action.
  • Characters so Far: What do you guys and gals feel about the characters. I thought Yuri was cute, but she is a bit whiny. Hopefully, she changes. I like Liliana the most in this episode than Erica because I think I got a soft side for tsundere characters.

Overall, the episode is good but not great. It had some decent action, but it gets a bit repetitive when Godou starts rambling about the gods and background on Duke Voban's powers. It's good for the wiki pages, but it didn't have enough suspense to keep the fans interested.

Kissing Gallery

I was thinking of something extra to do for this report, but I got another kissing gallery. Feel free to suggest some cool stuff we can do in these reports.

Oh, Sonata uploaded a naughty French Kiss GIF. Don't worry it's not Athena.

For more GIFs, check out the GIF thread.

Thanks

Thank you guys and gals for reading this report. Please support the anime and the wiki editors who are working hard in these projects. So far, it's going well.

Wiki Progress: I just finished Ep. 7's wiki page with Daniel's help. Daniel did a cool thing with the character section for the Campione! series. It's not done yet. Rest assured, he would have something awesome for the design. He did this to the Binbogami Ga!, Kokoro Connect, and other anime series page. It looks awesome. Daniel Newton is one of the most creative and innovative wiki editor here, and I'm glad to work with him.

Welcome to the Weekly Campione! report. Last week was a mellow episode that brought some attention to Yuri Mariya. This week, we get a better insight on her and her relationship with Duke Vobon and Liliana.

Plot

Duke Vobon challenges Godou in a game where Godou must avoid capture by the duke until dawn in order to free Yuri.

Can Godou do it?

Verdict

Beware of Spoilers

Good

  • We finally get to know Yuri's back story and the ritual she did four years that was supposed to summon Athena for Duke Voban.
  • If you're a fan of Erica, she had a lot of action scenes; Godou didn't do much.
  • The action is building up for the next episode since Godou's Horse avatar didn't do so hot against Duke Voban's werewolf form. Makes me wonder how will Godou beat the guy.

Bad

Erica: Know your place, Yuri.
Erica: Know your place, Yuri.
  • Competition or Not:I put this as a maybe for you guys. I tend to like harem shows if the potential love interests are competitive. Yuri is just too submissive to Erica. I hate to be off-tangent, but I find Ayeka vs Ryoko or the Rosario Vampire ladies funny when they fight over the guy. Some fans don't like the cliche. It's up to you guys, and it's a bit early in the series. I'm hoping for some competition.

Overall, this episode is more exciting than last week's episode. I hope the action picks up in the next episode. It's too bad that we don't get a episode preview clip. Maybe, Athena will show up to Godou's rescue, or Godou becomes a man and beats the guy himself.

Thanks

Thank you everyone for reading this report. Please support the franchise and wiki editors who are working hard on this project. Any help, blogs, or comments would be awesome. It makes the community a better place if more people get involved.

Wiki Progress

There was a lot of information in this episode. After finishing Ep. 6, I will update Yuri, Duke Vobon, and Liliana's origin stories. I did updated Campione concept page, and today's new wiki page is Copper Black Cross. For more information, check out the Campione! wiki project and wiki list.
