Lucrezia Zora News

Lucrezia Zora is a anime/manga character in the Campione! franchise
| |

Welcome to the weekly Campione! report! I hope to continue to do this weekly, but when school rolls by, I might do this biweekly. Last week's episode finished Godou's battle with Duke Voban. We haven't seen the last of him. I still wonder about the fights between Campione. Are they held by rules like a fight for the best Campione or random battles? It's probably the first one.

Plot

Erica and Lucrezia trick Godou in going to Italy for a little vacation. Elsewhere in Napoli, Liliana watches Salvatore slashes Hera's Seal that attracts a dragon. A mysterious person arrives to stop the dragon. Godou meets a familiar person.

Who is the blonde man and who did Godou bump in Italy?

Verdict

Beware of spoilers!

Good

It's Godou and Liliana's turn
It's Godou and Liliana's turn
  • If you love fan service and beach scenes, this episode is good for you fans. There is a naughty scene where the girls fight over Godou while smothering him with their bosom.
  • Athena makes another appearance. Though, she somehow got Perseus to fight Godou.
  • Looks like we might have Liliana and Godou emphasis for this episode and maybe the next one. The last two episodes were about Yuri and her past.

Bad

  • Hit or Miss with cliche fan service and harems: Some of you might hate this because there is a bunch of cliches such as girls fighting over Godou and Yuri's towel falling off. Yuri slaps Godou for being pervert even though it is Yuri's fault for not tying her towel properly.

Bizarre

It looks like Arianna is drenched in...
It looks like Arianna is drenched in...
  • These thoughts are probably formed when my head is in the gutter. Yuri plays the motherly role while doing the shrine maiden/virgin fetish. Erica is the front liner, and Liliana plays hard to get or the tsundere part. I'm not sure about Athena. Some folks say Athena has a thing for Godou. I say let's wait to see some more stuff from her.

Overall, this episode is good but not great. I hope the Perseus battle is more better than Duke Voban's battle. Athena's battle with Godou is the best in my opinion because it had an even teamwork between Erica and Godou.

In Duke Voban's battle, the girls did most of the work, and Godou was just kissing them.

Trivia Time!

Sometimes, I did this for the Fairy Tail and Sket Dance weekly reports, but I ran out of time and creativity.

  • Godou: 1, 2,
  • Erica: 1, 2,
  • Yuri: 1, 2,
  • Athena: 1,

Thanks

Thank you everyone for reading this report and supporting both the anime and the wiki editors who are working hard. Any help to the wiki page, blogs, and comments would be appreciated.

Wiki Progress: Daniel and I finished Ep. 8's wiki page; I added Perseus's page. I think I updated Yuri's evolution section last week; Sonata updated Athena and Duke Voban's powers (the column on the right for those who are new).

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.

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.

Characters

Beware of spoilers!

Godou Kusanagi
Godou Kusanagi
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 Blandelli
Erica Blandelli
Erica is a beautiful, buxom Italian woman who is a prideful knight. She becomes smitten by Godou after their fateful encounter.
Arianna
Arianna
Arianna is Erica's weird maid who cannot cook or drive properly.
Athena
Athena
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.

Italian Theme

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.

Thank you for reading and commenting on this blog.

Ci vediamo!

Welcome to the first ever Campione! anime series report! I'm Taka, a wiki editor here in the Anime Vice community and an Admin at Sket Dance Wikia. Usually, I include a wiki progress at the end of these reports.

Plot

Kusanagi Godo arrives to Italy to deliver a Grimoire to Lucrezia Zora, a woman who was acquainted with Godou's grandfather. Along the way, he bumps into Erica Blandelli who is a knight that protects the peace between gods and humans. In a rogue god battle, Godou meets Verethragna, a god who is searching for the Ten Avatars.

Can Godou and Erica stop Verethragna?

Verdict

Good

Fan service is pretty tame
Fan service is pretty tame
  • If you love fan service, this episode had a lot of it.
  • Impressions of Characters: Godou is pretty innocent guy, and Erica is a crazy woman when she's drunk. Erica reminds me of Rukia Kuchiki for some odd reason. I love Arianna who is a minor character, but she's pretty funny. I love Lucrezia who is a naughty troublemaker when she has Godou stuck in Erica's bedroom.
  • I heard this series is a harem, and so far, I haven't seen any elements yet. Though, the poster for Campione! has many girls around it. It's no big deal. I think Rosario Vampire did the same thing where you see the first female lead in the first episode and no one else.
  • As for the action in the show, it is good. Erica did most of the action, and Godou finally man up. I find the Prometheus's Grimoire a cool object which allows one to steal a god's abilities. Though, the episode had a lot to cover as you can see there was no ending theme song.

Bad

  • The episode felt rushed a bit.
  • If you hate cliches, the scene with Erica slapping Godou for his indecency can be annoying.

I'm hooked on Campione! This series is good for people who love magic, fan service, action, and harem (for the future).

Thanks

Thanks again for reading the report. Please support the series if you love the show.

If you're a wiki editor, feel free to help out. I didn't get much snapshots for this series. I'm busy with other wiki projects in Anime Vice, Giant Bomb, and Rave Master/Sket Dance Wikia. I appreciate any help.
