Synopsis

Hiyori Iki is excited to start high school alongside her two middle school friends, but "Delivery God" Yato seems to have other plans for the day. Will Hiyori be able to make a good impression on her first day? Or will Yato cost her a happy high school life?

On another day, Hiyori decides to take advantage of the beautiful weather and invites a number of people to gaze at the cherry blossoms, including the fearsome combat god, Bishamon. But how long will their blissful day last when Yato and his old rival Bishamon start to drink together?

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

So, first of all let me say one thing: If you have not yet read the manga, watching the second OVA is not recommendable as it takes place immediately after the next big arc in the manga. It thus contains major spoilers for this arc.
Additionally you won't be able to understand the deep meaning behind these scenes under the cherry tree.
As many over OVAs, this one, too, is aimed at the manga readers and not the anime audience.

Story: 8
It is a very precise adaption from the manga. This goes for both OVAs. They both take place between two arcs in the manga, thus there is ...

First of all, do not attempt to watch this directly after or before the first season (Noragami), you MUST only watch these two episodes after seeing all first 6 episodes from the second season (Noragami Aragato), or else, major spoilers are going wrap. Make sure you watch the second episode of the OVA first, then the first. I know that's an odd order, but trust me, that's the right order to follow.

- Story (7.5/10):
Pretty decent side stories for fun, no particular big plot surprise or anything aside from containing spoilers of the first 6 episodes of Noragami Aragato.
The first OVA resolves around Yato taking over ...

Wow, way to shit on a series. The OVA that should not have been.

The first episode just fucks up the series royally and after having watched the series it is hard to see that as canon.

The second episode is a bit better but in the end still feels off-canon and weird. Also, it includes spoilers since it skips quite a few volumes.

If you like Noragami, do yourself a favour and don't watch this till you've watched everything else.

Since this review was supposedly still not long enough, I'll have to write some more.
I really don't understand for who the second episode of the OVA was meant ...
