Watching the anime I am seeing that they are speeding up the introduction of the female characters compaired to the light novels

First of all, I want to say that I'm actually a big fan of the novels. Sure they're not exactly breaking new ground, but they're a lot of fun with good characters and some great fight scenes.

This anime, though...this anime is awful.

As others have already mentioned the pacing is a complete mess. They're clearly trying to cram too much material into the time they've been given so they just jump from one scene to another without really explaining anything. And it's only loosely following the plot of the books in the first place. I mean, there are parts that are clearly based on the novels but they're merging multiple story lines and doing things all out of order. That doesn't have to be bad, but...look at the result. Character development has been thrown out the window. Erica has been reduced to a cheap whore. But even the battles are boring. A big part of what made the fights interesting in the novels is the fact that Godou isn't a charge-in-without-thinking kind of character. His approach is actually quite contemplative and tactical. But there's not even a hint of that in the anime. I mean heck, how could there be when they don't even bother to explain to the viewer what the conditions on his powers are. I guess that would have taking too much time to explain.

This show has completely butchered the source material. It's left without a single redeeming quality.

Wow. I thought the first ep was bad, but... Wow. That was horrible. And I was actually going to give it a chance...

Garbage. Dropped.

Yeah, that was rather abrupt. I mean, even for a tsundere character there should be at least a few episodes for the switch, right? :)

I was wondering about that. They point out conditions, but don't explain anything and then nothing bad happens. So, I guess the conditions were just hot air.

They way you describe the books makes me less interested in this show and more interested in checking out the books. Still, I tend to give shows 3 episodes even if they don't deserve them. Since I'm watching too much right now, this is pretty close to being cut.

I'm probably going to drop this as well. I was already on the fence about it but if its butchering the source material then I don't see much point in continuing. I agree that Erica was basically reduced to being a whore in episode 2 which really doesn't give me hope for the rest of the anime anyways. Its not the worst thing I've seen this season but it just seems to be turning into a really bad adaptation of something that sounds like it could be pretty interesting.

i would agree Hagure Yuusha no Estetica seems good harem anime for the season ....it has pretty much boobies and protagonist is sick ....
but why the heck the tags in it are kids and yaoi but Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru also seems like a legit harem series i think well i am giving campione a 3 episode but still seems legit to watch it

Pretty much this... I kind of enjoyed the first episode but the second was bad. Erica's apparent brain transplant wasn't doing her any favours.

I agree. The characters are rushed to be developed and so its not believable at all.

It is just becoming like any other harem anime but I do like the seiyuu Mastunaga.

Episode 3



Well, someone is quite popular this episode after just transferring to the new school.

But beyond that, a lot of kissing in this latest one.. and there is a story plot advancement. Also, it seems that Athena is really on the move as she's seeking what she wants.

hhmmm looks interesting.. I'll add this to my "watch later" list, need to get more critiques about this X3

This one had as much yodare as Nazo no Kanojo X LOL! Otherwise not so much fanservice which is actually good. This episode was better than last week's.

Ep 3 was better than ep 2 imo but I'm still kind of disappointed at how Erica's character was developed (way too quickly and without explanation)
Quick paced fighting was pretty good
Question:

Athena loli kiss...that's all I have to say lol
