Campione! episode 12
I was worried about the ending and for good reasons too. I don’t see how they are going to end this right now. The only explanation I can come up with, amongst several other unlikely ones, is that they will be working on a second season, even if the sales look bad. So many things have not yet been covered, so there’s absolutely no way for them to finish it all during the next and final episode.
They start off with the introduction of a new female character, yet his character turns out to possess a strong weapon with the ability to control its owner. The fact that Godou got ‘warped’ to another dimension, where he met up with some old geezer, is not even worth mentioning at this point. He probably gained the ability to use his sword without getting kissed first.
Anyway, this character, Ena, was in way over her head, allowing that sword to overpower her and take control. This was especially bad for Erica, as she almost died from having her Mana drained. Again, I’m not going into the specifics about how she was saved. It’s not interesting that Godou and Erica spent a few minutes kissing. I mean, what else is new?
One could see this sword as the season’s final boss, until Athena’s evil twin suddenly showed up to take control of it. One could almost see how Godou defeats that god, saves the day and enjoys that final moment where he gets smothered by all the girls he ‘collected’ so far. Let’s face it, it would be terrible if things really ended that way, but it’s certainly starting to look like it. I for one wouldn’t be satisfied. It should be alright though; chances of Campione getting a second season are pretty high. There’s plenty of content, the ratings aren’t bad and I’m sure the sales will allow for another season. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens after this.
