A Peek Into The Storyline
In the first season of the series we get to meet our main character Godou Kusanagi, who used to be a baseball player but had to retire due to injuries. Asked by his grandfather to return a stone tablet to a friend he encounters startling situations in life and somehow ends up killing the God of war and becoming a Campione.
So, now he is responsible to keep the dissenting Gods in check and basically rule the world. But this duty comes with many unforeseen and unprecedented circumstances. One such problem is a girl named Erica who through her shenanigans lands Godou in precarious situations. Therefore, the whole story revolves around the adventures and misadventures of our protagonist.
