Campione is a thrilling action-packed anime series that premiered in 2012 starring Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Fumihiko Tachiki, and Monica Rial. The story is a mix of fantasy and supernatural elements with an incredible storyline that keeps the viewer on edge throughout the entire show.

The series follows the protagonist Godou Kusanagi, a retired baseball player who somehow becomes a Campione, a god slayer with the ability to kill gods and steal their powers. It all starts when Godou saves a young girl, Erica Blandelli, from a crazed god and kills it in the process. He realizes that he now possesses the power of the god he just defeated and that he is now a Campione.

From this moment on, Godou's life becomes anything but normal. He is thrust into a world of gods and mythical creatures as he tries to understand the extent of his powers and the responsibilities that come with them. Together with Erica and his other companions, Godou must face off against other gods who seek to destroy the world and reign supreme.

The show is full of action sequences as the battles between the gods and the Campiones take place. The animation is superb and captures the intensity and adrenaline of each fight. The character development is also noteworthy, as the main characters are fleshed out throughout the series, making them relatable and likable.

Godou's character is unique in that he is not your typical hero. He makes mistakes, and he is not always sure of himself, but he is always ready to give his all when the situation demands it. Erica is also a well-developed character, and her relationship with Godou is a highlight of the series. Monica Rial's English dub is also fantastic, perfectly capturing Erica's fiery personality.

The show explores themes of power and responsibility as Godou struggles to manage the vast powers he has acquired. It also raises questions about the nature of gods and their place in the world. The villains in the show are also well-written, with their motivations and desires explored throughout the series.

The music in the show is also a strong point, with composer Tatsuya Kato delivering a fantastic soundtrack that sets the tone for each scene. The opening and ending themes are also memorable, with the opening theme "BRAVE BLADE!" by Megu Sakuragawa being a standout.

Overall, Campione is an excellent anime series that is definitely worth watching for fans of action, fantasy, and supernatural genres. The storyline is engaging, the characters are likable, and the animation and music are top-notch. The show does a great job of balancing action sequences with character development, making for a satisfying viewing experience.

Campione is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (14 episodes). The series first aired on August 6, 2012.
