Synopsis:

Some people suddenly find religion, but for 16 year old Kusanagi Godo,
it’s that REALLY old time religion that’s found him!  As the result of
defeating the God of War in mortal combat, Godo’s stuck with the
unwanted position of Campione, or God Slayer, whose duty is to fight
Herectical Gods whenever they try to muscle in on the local turf.  Not
only is this likely to make Godo roadkill on the Highway to Heaven,
it’s also a job that comes with a lot of other problems.  Like how to
deal with the fact that his “enhanced status” is attracting a bevy of
overly-worshippy female followers.  After all, they’re just there to
aid him in his demi-godly duties, right?  So why is it that their
leader, the demonically manipulative sword-mistress Erica Brandelli,
seems to have such a devilish interest in encouraging some VERY
unorthodox activities?  Get ready for immortal affairs, heavenly
harems and lots of dueling deities taking pious in the face as the
ultimate smash, bash and thrash of the Titans rocks both Heaven and
Earth in CAMPIONE!

 

Sentai Filmworks will stream the series via additional digital services in the future as well as release the series on home video next year. Crunchyroll will stream the series beginning next Friday at 10AM PST.
