Campione! episode 05
What a strange episode. I feel as though they’ve skipped quite a bit of the story. Godou, apparently, met up with another Campione and did some other stuff that I never got to see. It’s such a shame, really.
This entire episode was one big contest between Erica and Yuri to win Godou’s heart. How stupid. I like a little bit of ecchi comedy, no problem, but this was way too much. It’s nice that Godou has girls fighting over him, but I don’t want to see a whole episode’s worth of this. I do have to admit that I liked a few of those scenes, I guess.
Only at the last part did it get a bit more serious. We learned about a guy that can revive the dead as zombies, control a person, control wolves and god only knows what else. He was someone to be feared, even for Godou, apparently. Not entirely surprising if I do say so myself.
Things got even worse when Liliana abducted Yuri and brought her to that man. It seems that he wanted to challenge Athena, whom he acknowledged as an equal. I have this feeling that Godou has become his new target after defeating Athena. That is only to be expected. Godou will probably realize that something’s wrong when Yuri wouldn’t answer her new phone.
Has Campione become predictable? I don’t know. Let us just say that I can already see what’s about to happen to a point. The story itself is very interesting, but it’s useless when things become so obvious. They tell us about a powerful guy, after which he joins the big picture at the end of the episode. I’m sorry, but that’s just too predictable.
