Campione! episode 07
Yet another good episode in the Campione! line-up. I think it’s kind of strange that the ratings haven’t really changed much since the anime began. One would think that the ratings would’ve at least fluctuated a little bit during these past seven weeks. I’m not complaining though. The anime has been holding on to a steady seven and a half rating.
We finally got to see the battle between Godou and Duke Voban during this episode. Truth be told; I have mixed feelings about it. Godou managed, thanks to Erica (again), to summon that golden sword of his. The sword that can cut through a god’s authority. Must be nice to have such power. Anyway, Godou launched attacked after attack, but with no success. It seemed like it was effective at some point, especially after Yuri gave him that extra boost, but it was pretty much wasted energy. Even the power of the “Goat” was useless against Duke Voban.
Now, I like the fact that it wasn’t over quickly, and that it didn’t easily end in Godou’s victory. I definitely like that. Protagonists shouldn’t have it too easy. The one thing that has got me thinking is the difference in power. That old man was way too powerful. That either means that Godou has a long way to go or that he will, like in a lot of other similar anime, somehow obtain a lot more power. I really hope that’s not the case. Campione! has been quite entertaining and, even now, looks quite promising. Let it be said, here and now, that I will drop this anime if such a think were to happen in the unforeseeable future.
And finally, I’m also having a bit of trouble with the fact that Liliana seems to have joined Godou’s side. It’s always nice to have another ally, but can we actually call her that? She switched to their side so easily. A bit too easily if you ask me. Also, I don’t really like the fact that she did it because of some novel that she supposedly wrote. It just seems a bit childish, that’s all. I’m just going to have to wait and see what happens. I don’t think that she will double cross them anytime soon though, as she seems to be pretty fond of Yuri.
