It certainly has not been a quiet Anime Expo for Sentai Filmworks, with yet another acquisition announcement by the company. Following on once again from the CrunchyRoll simulcast announcement at their panel, Sentai Filmworks have announced their acquisition of the Campione! television anime series which will be available soon through digital outlets with a home video release slated to be made next year.
The series has yet to be aired in Japan, slated for release on the 6th July 2012, and will be simulcast in English alongside these releases.
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. Godo doesn’t like fighting but his title of “Campione” makes him get involved in battles against other Campiones and uncontrollable gods.
