Welcome to the Noragami discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genre: Fantasy
Produced by: Bones

Plot: Yato is a minor deity who lacks even a single shrine. In order to build his own shrine, he scrawls his cell number on the wall of a downtown bathroom telling people he will help them in exchange for a 5-yen offering, becoming a self-styled "delivery god." Hiyori, the daughter of a respectable family, is almost in a traffic accident, but is rescued by Yato. This causes her to become a "hanyou," a person who can easily lose her soul. She chases Yato down, and they begin to work together. Yato also finds a boy named Yukine who becomes a "sacred treasure" that can be used by a god. The three of them battle "you" who bring harm to humans as Yato's hidden history is gradually revealed.

This for a 1st episode it was pretty solid.Yato is like the Rodney Dangerfield of gods.An 5 yen seems to go a long way.

2nd episode we see the new regalia.Also with the rash of pearl clutching on fan service ,i expect some one to be greatly offended by her using her cat like tail to pacify a baby.

@takashichea: I think youll like it. Good chance of it i think. Animation an art style is good . Story is pretty good an its taking its time world building. I like the terms used for things to like farshore for the after life.

@Marshal Victory:

I watched the first episode. I like it. I'll continue to follow up on it. I wonder who is the main character, is Yato or Hiyori?

@takashichea: Um at 1st thought it was Yato. But its developing as a cast with difrent leads per episode.

@takashichea: Ok i see what they are doing . Its a sprial like story telling adding new characters conected to another new character. Yato is the main figure with the other 2 as suporting. Every one else revolves from them. See this more done in shonen tho.

Also 4 had a nice bit of background reveal. An a nice bit of something to think about . " It is harder to sever a bond than make one."

@Marshal Victory:

Finished the 2nd episode. It was about the young girl. I do see the trend you're pointing out.

5 was a downer in some ways. But we know a bit more how the gods work. I like this show but its doing the slow world build.

Sigh missed 6 last week so had to do cach up again. 6 and 7 were good. Nice slow world building with a fair amount of action. The comedy parts seem a little flat now to me. But the action is fairly well done.

Finished episode 3, 4, and 5. I must have lost count. I'm not sure if I watched last week's recent episode. It was cool learning more about Yukine (I found out he and Alibaba share the same VA) and Yato. Yato was a war god who killed Regalias. I loved how the others view Yato as a bad role model. Yato has friends in benefit, an affair with the Goddess of poverty who is married, and 2 former Regalia girls.

Bit of this series remind of Bleach where innocent souls get possessed or eaten by bad spirits. I felt bad for the little girl. I'm looking forward to seeing the episode about the blonde woman who rode on a lion.

@takashichea: Speeking of possesion. Series is not over an it has a OVA out ! Not sure if thats a good thing or bad. But it felt slightly off as some OVA do.

@Marshal Victory:

That's strange with the OVA. Like you said, OVAs usually come out when the anime ends. OVAs serve as teasers for fans who want more and another season.

Good news for fans of this season's Bones anime adaptation. Kodansha will be bringing over Adachitoka's Noragami: Stray God manga to North America.

@takashichea: Well like i said it was off in feel an tone. But with the same voice actors an not quite as good animation. Fear this will take after some other shows that OVAs end up ruining the second season. This story have enuff shonen like elements it could go on for while. But it has a main plot ( get the girls body/spirit fixed) that has become a sub plot at best. It has plenty of character development that the OVA just seems to take the cliff notes version.

@takashichea: Yo that OVA was hilarious lmao I don't see that coming at all, but at least they kept that out of the actual anime, I don't think I would have enjoyed it otherwise.

@LHWKnight: Thats seems to be the nature of most OVA it almost becomes a alt telling or a characture of the show. This one was ok but it just didnt feel like the characters from the show as much. More a comedy centric take .

8 has alot of build up. Also the builling part was really well done. Alot to like for me in this one. Even how Yattys girl friend threatens the other god of war. Animtion on this one to was good. Then again it could be just the same an im comparing it to the ova.

@Marshal Victory:

Can't believe her clothing is also a Regalia. The butler looks like Yukio from Blue Exorcist. Yukine reminds me of Alibaba, whiny. Took me a while to shield his voice. Can't blame him since he and Hiyori don't know Yato well. This episode connects his past well.
