Campione! episode 04
Hmm, okay… Good episode, very good. However, I have mixed feelings about it. It feels like things ended a bit too easily. Things looked so hard before, yet everything seemed to go pretty smoothly during the end, as though everything was already planned out by the protagonist. Ah hell, I’m probably imagining things.
The story continued with Godou trying to defeat a goddess, Athena. Keep in mind that the goddess in question delivered a humiliated defeat to Godou. The guy didn’t stand a chance without that shiny sword of his. That is why Athena was able to do as she pleased and obtain that very special item, allowing her to become “complete”.
Things seemed really, really bad. Athena had become more powerful than ever. Her possibilities were endless with no one in sight that was capable of defeating her. Even Yuri could chant all she wanted to, but none of it seemed even remotely effective.
Sigh, that’s when Godou showed up, started babbling about whatnot and materialized that shiny sword of his. It seemed difficult at first, and her way of speaking (typical old Greece to English dialect) didn’t make things much easier either. Still, Godou managed to get her to her knees with the use of his sword and the lance plus information provided by Erica.
I know I’m sounding a bit negatively, which probably makes me seem a bit demotivated, but nothing could be further from the truth. I like the story and what it has to offer, but I just think that things went a bit too easily. I did like it when Godou let Athene live though. It’s probably one of the unique traits that sets him apart from other Campione’s.
