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.

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.
