If anyone is curious, the full OST for Noragami was released a few days ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-Kmy...mKOKj3_CfP2EKg
Some great tracks there
oh and Yukine slowly turns heavily annoying. I realize he's a kid and all, and he probably has his reasons for venting, but it's time he realizes his own faults and stops blaming others.
That being said, looks like everything is like the manga so far. They've just finished chapter 10 of the manga and the developments are the same, except for cutting some litte scenes (nothing grave though). Wonder when exactly they will go the anime original route. I'm starting to really enjoy the series, so to me it's bad news they will give this an anime original ending =/
It does not look like there will be an anime only ending. There will be a short filler arc about Rabou, the character Nora was talking to at the end of episode seven. The Rabou arc will probably only be two or three episodes long. It looks like the Yukine arc wasn't long enough for a full 12 episodes, and they obviously did not want to start another canon arc, only to have to end it after a few episodes. Next weeks episode definitely will be canon. The Rabou arc probably will only be a few episodes long, to pad the series out to a full cour. I doubt they are going to write an anime only ending after only twelve episodes. It would be a shame, if they did. It looks like Noragami will be one of the biggest hits this season.
Finally we understood what was the point of Yato with Yukine. I think every shinki has to be for this, accept that they will never have the same as humans, but Yukine is particularly special, I still don't know why, maybe it is because his age, but I think that there is more. I can't accept that Yukine is just a difficult teenager with serious problems of education.
Also, couldn't Yato teach it to Yukine in another way? Things couldn't be different? What he did may be confused with indifference, as I thought that it was until now.
People can think that Daikoku reaction was rather bad, but he has to think of Kofuku's security, that rust is contagious. By the preview, it will be a really painful treatment to cure it. Don't die Yato.
Just watched the OVA.
It was hilarious, Yukine acts so differently here, It reminded me how competent Yato is. All the Gods are attention whores, Hiyori was badass.
Anyway about the episode, all ends well I guess.
Hiyori has become a really important person for Yukine and Yato and I like it.
I almost cried seeing all three of them together again.
To conclude, it seems like Nora won't give up on Yato that easily....
Well as expected. A whole episode for saving Yato and Yukine... I hope he will be less annoying from now on.
Hiyori finally did something useful. Good character development. So only Bishamon and Nora are left hm?
What an episode! I have to BUY to manga. XD
The ritual of purification was impressive and, in the end, Yukine finally understood what Yato was trying to convey to him. The best episode of the series until now so far. Everything converged in the end and now we know why Hiyori was there. She was always a bridge between Yato and Yukine and this time she showed her real value.
4 episodes remaining. I think they will not manage to finish everything with Bishamon and Nora...
Yato and Hiyori acting like Yukines parents right there was great.
Seriously that guy is rather popular... Everyone wants to kill him... At least he is rather strong by now.
Nora did something to Hiyoris memories... <.< Why is she so damn jealous?
Nora is the creepiest Yandere I've ever seen and I know woh Gasai Yuno is. LOL
I wonder what she exactly did to Hiyori; I mean, will she be able to regain her memories by herself?
Other than that, i too loved seeing Yato and Hiyori behaving like Yukine's parents.
Can't wait for the next episode already.
Just watched episode 9. I am pleased, easily my favorite episode, I feared his punishment wouldn't be harsh or risky enough, Hiyori finally got her time to shine. I still think Yato should have punished him earlier though.
Nora creeped me out in that episode. What on earth happened with Hiyori?! Nora cut off the bond between her and Yato/Yukine? Seems like it. D:
Looking forward for the next episode.
Nora is a really twisted monster... <.< Seems like Yato pretty much forgot who he is too. Not that it is something bad in his case.
The battle against Rabo won't be easy... He is way stronger than Yato at the moment.
What happened to Hiyori at the end?
Hmm, the fight against Rabo won't be easy, but I guess that Yato will prevail, otherwise he wouldn't be the MC of this show.
Nora really is a twisted Regalia and a very Yandere-ish character. LOL
I do hope that Hiyori will regain her memories by herself; I think it would be epic and also beautiful.
What a powerful evening for Yukine. I initially thought I would dislike the arc since it seemed like a been there done that type of thing but somehow I find myself still caring for Yukine's well being that Im just wholly absorbed in the arc and see how things play out.
Hoping it gets all flashy for an explosive finale.
