Yato is a minor god whose dream is to have a lot of followers worshipping him and praying to him. Unfortunately, his dream is far from coming true since he doesn't even have a single shrine dedicated to him. To make things worse, the only partner he had to help him solve people's problems, had just quit the job.

His godly existence and luck just might change when he stumbles upon Iki Hiyori and saves her life; a feat which also leaves her in quite a predicament so she is stuck with him until her problem gets resolved. Together with Hiyori and his new partner-weapon Yukine, Yato will do everything he can to gain fame, recognition and just maybe, one shrine dedicated to him, as well.

I really, really do hope that the anime adaptation isn't messed up for this manga... so far, I have a bad feeling about it... anyway. A big and enthusiastic yes to Noragami. Believe me, I sure am glad that I stumbled across such a gem. It's not an overused or typical story, and it's very interesting. How so?

Story: 8
As said, this manga isn't a typical one. It's the type that keeps you wanting more and more. It presents some small feelings of mystery, and a bit of dread. Kind of like hidden dark parts to the plot. The first chapter was a disappointment to me. read more

After watching the anime version of Noragami, i couldn't sit still. I absolutely needed to know more of the story! And as a result, it has led me to read the manga, and i can tell you right now, it has become one of my favorite mangas.

Out of all the Supernatural/God/Phantom genres i have read, Noragami has surprised me. Not because it had a original storyline, but the depth of the plot, and the overall lesson it teaches you at the end of each arc.The plot balances the amount of action, comedy and romance (yes there's romance) well and most importantly, flashbacks don't last an read more

Noragami and Kyoukai no Rinne takes place in a modern setting but with fantasy/supernatural elements involving the events of their perspective stories. In particular, the main male character possesses a special gift that enables them to fight against spirits/apparitions. And throughout the series, they encounter powerful foes. At the same time, they also get acquainted with a young girl whom he develops an interesting relationship with. Both series adapts characters' role very well to fits with their personalities. There is also background stories that ties to the origins of the characters. Both series are also no stranger to comedy and always keep its timing and momentum to deliver what sanctification.
Both of the series share many similarities, from the sometimes bittersweet climate, which carries the simple, but universal message about finding happiness in life, to interesting characters and their relations (especially Tenka and Yato are very much alike). They also contain gripping action and sudden twists that make you want to turn to the next page to find out the next secret behind the intricate plots, which gets the reader closer to the satisfying resolution.
