Ciao and welcome to the 2nd Italian anime spotlight blog! Today, we are covering Campione!, a harem based series that just started airing in June of 2012.
For those who are new to Campione!, here is a synopsis.
It revolves around Godou Kusanagi who is an ordinary high school student who killed a god and claimed its power. He becomes a Campione, one who slays other gods. After becoming a Campione, Godou finds himself attracting a few beautiful women. Erica Blandelli is the first gal who changes and rocks Godou's life.
Beware of spoilers!
|Godou is a young, Japanese (Giapponese) man who visits Italy to deliver a Grimoire to his grandfather's friend. Over there, he encounters Erica and her maid who are fighting a god. With his first kiss from Erica, Godou unlocks the Ten Avatars and kicks butt with his Golden Sword.|
|Erica is a beautiful, buxom Italian woman who is a prideful knight. She becomes smitten by Godou after their fateful encounter.|
|Arianna is Erica's weird maid who cannot cook or drive properly.|
|Due to spoilers, Athena is a mysterious silver haired, loli girl.|
I had to keep it short, but you guys and gals know that Athena is a god.
Campione! is first set in Italy. Yet, it goes back to Japan on the second episode. I'm hoping the action and story occurs more in Italy. Plus, we have a few Italian women in the show who are very exotic.
Though, we haven't seen any Italian foods, but we got Italian words. I think it's because little Arianna can't cook while Erica is more of a warrior than a chef. Godou's sister, Shizuka Kusanagi, is the only chef I seen. She needs to learn to cook some Italian cuisine since Erica is going to be Godou's little roommate.
- Bachio - It's an Italian word for kiss.
- Ci vediamo means "until we meet again, see you."
- Cuore di Leone - It's the name of Erica's sword which means Heart of Lion. I'm not sure about the literal translation.
- Diavola Rossa means "Red Devil."
Compared to La Storia della Arcana Famiglia, the reverse harem anime has more an Italian theme with more words.
I'm afraid that is all I have so far. If I'm wrong in my defintions, please feel free to correct me.
