Campione! Volume 15 will be released on October 25th this month.

The title is 女神の息子 which means "Son of the Goddess" without any context.
Speculation on this goddess:
Spoiler! :
The synopsis mentions the appearance of a new Heretic Goddess -- Artio from Celtic mythology.
"Artos" is also the Celtic word for bear and speculated to be the origin of the name "Arthur."
The identity of the titular "son" should be obvious.

Quick and messy translation by Kadi (Updated October 26)
Spoiler! :
Then, a goddess suddenly appeared. She had a large build and a sharp look in her eyes, scattering haughtiness and dignity like a queen. Her clothes were simple, reminding of underclothes, but she wore a pelt over them.
The pelt was a deep, dark reddish brown, like it was taken off a bear along with its head.
However, she was wearing that dead animal's face on her head like a crown.
Godou was certain. In front of him was a goddess that should be called "Queen of beasts". In the face of a god, a campione's mind and body entered a battle state. For a little while, his body has been overflowing with the power to fight, so her arrival wasn't unexpected.
"To speak the truth, until just now I hesitated," the goddess whispered.
"It's vexing, but there are many godslayers in this world. One of them has wounded me. With this wounded body of mine, it shall be difficult to exact revenge"
The pelt aside, she wore pseudo-underwear, so it was plain to see.
A vertical laceration cut into the goddess's white abdomen. The cut was red-black and obviously painful. It was probably very deep.
"However! Turing that blade against a goddess of earth will not be forgiven. If nobody else, this proud me will never forgive it! That's why I hesitated. Even if the preparations are already made..."
At that point, the goddess gave Godou and the others a glancing look.
She looked at Salvatore Doni, Kusanagi Godou and Madame Aisha in turn and then enchantingly shook her head, finally resignedly muttering:
"But now it's unavoidable. Now that there are two more godslayers, I need to be ready to douse my wounds in filth. Attention, godslayers! Detestable Rakshasa Kings!" <!--Monarchs? didn't check terminology-->

Thanks for the info zzhk. Sounds like it's going to be an interesting volume, and the cover might suggest that Liliana and probably Yuri are somehow going to join up with Godou, since why else would she appear on the cover, especially with Aisha in the back.

hmm...By the looks of it, The king of end would be born because of them. Anyone thinking, godou is the king of end's father when reading the synopsis?

that is possible, considering how Godou develops a relationship with every goddess he meets (Athean, Lancelot, Circe). But wont the girls kill him if he does have a child with an unknown women

Yes. I imagine Erica would kill him half a dozen times (at the very least) as punishment. Being semi-immortal does have it's drawbacks.

I suspect it's more of a metaphorical "birth"; in the way you could say something was the sign of the "birth of a new era".

There are ways on being updated real time the changes on websites. RSS reader is a popular example. If you could get that on a smart phone then it would be faster.

Based on a documentary I watched on natgeo, profile of Arthur matched two persons in history and guess what it is the same time period as where they were sent.
They speculated that two are combined as a basis for Arthur.

If the goddess survive, I wonder if would sleep to wait fo Godou. Everytime a new female character is introduced, why do I assumed she would fall in love with Godou? I wonder why? :roll:

That because their situation is worse than that of Romeo and Juliet( at least they are not biologically attune to fight each other). And the difference of love and battle lust is blurred to the godesses (circe).

Guys! What if Godou uses "Dawns Secret Archives" over "Verethragna"'s authroity? I think he can gain better control over all of the avatars.

I doubt that something like that would work. The reason is the fact that "Dawns Secret Archives" is a Grimore that contains the knowledge of how to control an Earth goddesses power.

It might amplify Godou's knowledge related to magic, but it won't reduce the restrictions placed on Verethragna's authorities and it won't allow him to gain better control over it's avatar's, since most of them, don't have a lot relation with magic / Earth.

I wonder if Godou will get that white weapon Circe mentioned from Artio
