Yato is a minor deity who lacks even a single shrine. In order to build his own shrine and gain recognition as a god, 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 killed in a traffic accident, but is rescued by Yato. This causes her to become a "hanyou," a person who can exit her body in soul form. She chases Yato down, and they begin to work together to help Yato be recognized. Yato also finds a boy named Yukine who becomes a Regalia, a "sacred treasure" that can be used by a god as a weapon to fight. The three of them battle phantoms who bring harm to humans as Yato's dark hidden history is gradually revealed.

Thunder Kings review no.1: Noragami

It seems that Noragami caught attention of many in this winter season, which is understandable based on the fact that it's produced by studio Bones, famous for their rather high production values. Additionally being an adaptation of rather famous manga certainly make it a high priority show for many. Is Noragami really worth attention it gets from the community? Well, it is definitely enjoyable show but it have its share of problems that keep it from being something special.

The Story 5/10
The story have some interesting concepts, mostly surrounding past of our main character(Yato) but many things are just introduced to us read more

Noragami was simply decent, although if someone were to ask me whether I liked it, my answer to that question would lean more towards a "No, not really" oriented answer. Quite frankly, this show disappointed me, to say the least. And its unfortunate because I really thought I was going to like this one, but sadly, the hype just didn't cut it for this one.

Story: 6/10

Definitely not the best, and fails to be in many ways. It lacked too many major details, and I found it somewhat choppy in some areas. At first, I liked the whole, "stray god trying to make it big" read more

I, like most everyone on this planet, like things.

The things that I like come in many different shapes and sizes. One such thing that I like is the Winter 2014 show Noragami, a 'feels' shounen brought to you by Studio Bones, that brings together elements of shows like Soul Eater and Rurouni Kenshin to give you a 'family-centric' journey exploring what it means to be alive.

Or rather I wish it did. At its best you've got tear jerking moments of mortality, family, and the struggles of existence. You have a cast of characters you care about, the voice acting encapsulating each character almost perfectly, read more

You know, when I first heard of this anime and read through the synopsis, I thought that this was kind of interesting; it also seemed to be somewhat hyped so I obviously decided that I’d better watch it.

… That happened months ago and only by being pushed by my brother to watch it with him did I ever get into this and really, I guess it was kind of meh… Yeah, just meh.


I have to say that the story showed potential as many cool concepts were being showed and some explored in good length (an example of this would be the Regalias, spirits that serve read more

Both series deal with spirits and youkai and the exorcism of them but Noragami is perhaps more entertaining
Both anime are about "gods" (Soul Eater: Shinigami). In both anime, some characters can change into a weapon and be used by their partner. In both anime, the "gods" (can) fight some sort of a monster that isn't human or another normal animal. They're also fun to watch. :)

Both anime are about a girl who can turn into a ghost (but in Noragami it isn't as permanent). The main male character is helping the girl out to turn back to normal.
If supernatural is an ingredient, then it be part of a recipe for both Bakemonogatari and Noragami. Not only do they involve supernatural beings but also legends that blurs the lines between fiction and reality.

Both series involves action, drama, and comedy with humorous dialogues. Bakemongatari focuses more on word play and narrative dialogues while Noragami uses gags for comedy. The main protagonist in both series gets involved with events that puts their lives in danger. There is also a bit of influence from folklore and legends relating to various cultures to some degrees.
Both have the same girl to deity plot and the same scenario where the deity has to deal with other deities. The girl in one anime is a weakling, while the girl in the other anime can kick ass. The deity's job in one anime is to protect the girl, while the deity in the other anime wants to be famous because he isn't that popular.
Cute blue eyed boy fights supernatural evil with a sword, and despite being a goofball he has tremendous power and is protective of his friends.
