Synopsis

In times of need, if you look in the right place, you just may see a strange telephone number scrawled in red. If you call this number, you will hear a young man introduce himself as the Yato God.

Yato is a minor deity and a self-proclaimed "Delivery God," who dreams of having millions of worshippers. Without a single shrine dedicated to his name, however, his goals are far from being realized. He spends his days doing odd jobs for five yen apiece, until his weapon partner becomes fed up with her useless master and deserts him.

Just as things seem to be looking grim for the god, his fortune changes when a middle school girl, Hiyori Iki, supposedly saves Yato from a car accident, taking the hit for him. Remarkably, she survives, but the event has caused her soul to become loose and hence able to leave her body. Hiyori demands that Yato return her to normal, but upon learning that he needs a new partner to do so, reluctantly agrees to help him find one. And with Hiyori's help, Yato's luck may finally be turning around.

All of us have seen that one series or show or book that didn't seem to know which direction in which it was going. Noragami, however, manages to pull off all of its elements perfectly without even batting an eye. Keep in mind that this is my first review so anything I’m about to say may be incredibly biased or just inexperienced as a whole. With that said, let’s begin.

Story: 9/10

The story of Noragami begins with Hiyori: an average high school girl who has a fated encounter with Yato, a homeless god, but we'll get to them later. Hiyori, being the angel of a person 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

(This is a spoiler-free review adapted for this site)

[Synopsis]: Lacking both recognition and a shrine, Yato (Kamiya, Hiroshi) is a god down on his luck, forced to take on mundane requests in order to earn his meager offerings. On one of these menial tasks he is rescued from the path of a racing truck by Iki Hiyori (Uchida, Maaya) who subsequently is subjected to inconvenient out of body experiences when her soul leaves her body. After Hiyori requests for Yato to fix her condition they meet Yukine, (Kaji, Yuuki) a wandering spirit who becomes Yato’s divine weapon. The three fight ayakashi and do odd jobs 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.

Story:

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

Recommendations

Anime: Kamisama Hajimemashita
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.

Anime: Kyoukai no Kanata
Both series deal with spirits and youkai and the exorcism of them but Noragami is perhaps more entertaining 
reportRecommended by Xenograft
Anime: Soul Eater
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. :)

Anime: Hataraku Maou-sama!
Great balance between comedy and action, led by main characters based on supernatural entities. 
reportRecommended by blooddrunk
Anime: Blood Lad
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.

Anime: Ao no Exorcist
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.
