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.

You read the manga? Wow .. The manga sucks .. The drawing is just plain horrible, it even worse than the LN.

And no, a number the named campiones are males, creepy males.And no, this isn't a harem anime about boobs--it's one about KISSES! Kissing is an essential part of this anime, not boobies.


not just kisses sexual innuendo plays a big role in this series too :p

i'm looking forward to this since the artwork so far is a big step up compare to the LN which was pretty generic imo, only thing that i'm worried about is that they would drag out the history lesson which was interesting in the first vol but got tedious in some of the arcs.

Yui Ogura sings the ED and it's her first solo to boot. I believe she also voices in a supporting role in this series. Lots of her and Kaori showing up this year.

My first impression when I saw the picture was " Ferris and Ryner!?!??!" Then I calmed down and was disappointed.

Release date?

July!!!

Im lookin forward to this.
Basic story is as it says. High school boy gets involved in something where it ends in him killing the god Verethragna thus attaining his power and becomes one of the few 'Campione' or God slayers.
During this he meets Erica who is a magician from a group called Copper Black Cross serving another Campione named Salvatore. She falls for Godou and thus becomes very flirtatious however is constantly rejected though difficultly.
Harem comes in to play when other magicians come to serve Godou or fight him and fall in love.

A harem love comedy? Yeah, this is almost definitely gonna be complete shit quality wise like the vast majority of series in that genre. May watch for the hot bitches though. Also expecting the male lead to be completely made of fail.

Im watching this if anything for the fact that Erica is an aggresive somewhat sadistic flirt.
Ive read some of the Novel but my jap sucks so I prefer waiting for Baka Tsuki to translate for me.
Besides God Killing is so much more interesting.
Id probably catagorize this as Fantasy Battle Romance then Love Comedy whatever it says on the first page

Me too, lol.

But, since the theme is "God Killer", which is interesting. I'll definitely watch.

characters look a lot like their from hayate the combat butler.

besides, in the synopsis, he kills a god, and it doesnt seem like it was from dumb luck, so this guy is already better than a lot of main guy protagonists.

I was going to post "For some reason this reminded me of Hayate, so I'll watch", and then I see your post O.O

Well, that said, I'll see the first three episodes to check
