Available now is the first preview clip of “Campione!“, a series which based on the PV, looks to be no different than any other generic fantasy anime about a busty heroine and sword wielding male protagonist.
Now the PV is certainly not lacking, rather what it does have simply isn’t so great – another anime with a highschool male lead who is invincible and girls want to mate with, only difference is here he has magic powers and a sword. Essentially, the concept itself is all around weak. The video does not leave us wanting to watch the anime series – however it does leave us wondering if they purposefully imitated the Fate series with their scene of unlimited blades.
Unfortunately, if we turn to the official synopsis in hopes for a clearer idea of this anime, it just turns out that we were correct – it is literally just a “harem love comedy plus magic battles” as we determined from the PV:
A harem love comedy plus magic battles. Kusanagi Godo is a 16-year-old high school boy, who once killed the god “Verethragna” and acquired the title of “Campione (god killer)” when he was 15. Erica Brandelli is a 16-year-old Italian girl, who is a “Great Knight” of the magic society “Bronze Black Cross” and had fought together with Godo to defeat Verethragna. Godo doesn’t like fighting but his title of “Campione” makes him get involved in battles against other Campiones and uncontrollable gods.
Adding another conventional element to an already overdone mix does make it any less generic – and that holds true here, this series isn’t looking anything above average, and that’s only if one would be kind enough to consider it average to begin with. Yet in any case, at least the visuals and animation seem ever so slightly better than standard.
Campione’s release date remains unknown – although it’s doubtful many are looking forward to this to begin with.
