THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Great episode. Not only the OST but the feelings that Yato put into his fight is worth watching. Shame this season doesn't have enough time to resolve the issue relating to Bishamon unlike the manga. Oh well..

Poor Hiyori :(
Great OST still and the episode imo was quite action packed. I'm not a fan of this anime original character though. Still, this series was awesome. 8/10. Season 2 plz.

Holy shit, Yato's blush.

Her soul can still get off from her body even though she doesn't have memory of them. He just went and broke the crystal that got her memory, so that Yato can return to the Yato he wants. So that's why he has a mask on that eye, which is a hole. She remembered them by his smell. The enemy just got defeated so fast. His body maintained like that with a spell? She doesn't want to cut the relations with them.

Good end...

7/10

It was a good adaptation, but the manga is still much better ;)

A bit underwhelming for the last episode
but as usual animation and art were crazy good. Loved the good Yato x Hiyori moments. ///
8/10

Haven't seen an intense 1v1 sword fight like that in a while, nice job Bones
My thoughts on this tiny arc can be boiled down to Rabo's a little on the predictable side but we got some great action in that ending

Surprisingly, they decided to intertwine some of the conclusion to Veena's arc with Hiyorin wanting to be with Yato and Nora bringing up Father

Hopefully there's more Kofuku-chan in the second OVA coming out later this year : P

One of the best anime this season by far, the episode was really and the fight scenes were great, I hope they'll consider a 2nd season.

For me personally, Noragami was the best anime this season.
Loved every second of it.The OST, characters, cast, humour, action, everything.
Rabo was a good anime original character, definitely pushed Yato to his limits in this fight.I'm craving for a second season of this so much.Can't wait till the second OVA gets released.

9/10.

I have to agree and say that I think that this is one of the best anime of this season. The ending was great! The fighting seemed kind of fast but I think they maintained it well for the last episode. Love the OST as usual! I hope for a second season!

Definitely not disappointed, the entire show was definitely fun and awesome and Bones did a great job even in the anime original contents. Still, a little disappointed that instead of making this a 2 cour Bones would proceed on with shows like soul eater not and Captain Earth -_- both of which looks awfully bad IMO

Second best show of the season, and best non-sequel show of the season. The "romantic" scenes were so adorable. Will leave score at a solid 8 for now. Anyway, onto points.

Bad: I felt like the filler arc was kind of just there, without a purpose. Also, I didn't relate to any characters. Third, Yukine arc dragged on for too long. Ended up disliking his character all together. Last, lack of direction and also, lack of emotional impact on me - Didn't really get anything out of watching this show other than fancy fights, some interesting plot points and exciting action.

Good: Great atmosphere building, solid characters, amazing OST, good at plot intertwining (aka adding subplots and big plots together)

I'd be interested to see a second season.

Very good show, retains my 9 score of it. Not masterpiece level but did very well for what it was.

The anime original ending was actually fine, it only confirmed that Yato was a god of calamity as originally predicted by some people.

Okay episode, but the overall series was pretty good. Hiyori hugging Yato was the best part for me. Wish this was 24 episodes.

8/10 for me. Hope to see a second season, and Yato vs Bishamon.

Loved it. Pretty great ep for an anime original and kept it open so they can continue from where the manga adaption stopped :D

Loved the sword fight animation. Was really good when Yato got pissed at crushing the sphere. Dem eyes!! SO DAMN BA!!!

The HiyorixYato feels were so good this episode >.< OTP no doubt!! :3

How he was protecting her with his life was lovely :3

The way he was rubbing cheeks and hugging her while blushing and crying when she regained her memories [from his smell her fav smell :3] was so emotional <3

And at the end his blushing face when she said she wants to be with him 4ever. DAT BLUSH!!! Kofuku's reaction was XD And Yukine is jealous XD

Lol'd at Yato getting shy and asking for 5 yen to make her wish come true. So cute <3

Anyway, definitely best anime of the season. The popularity spike this series made this season is really impressive :D Fully deserved too ^^

WHY NO ANNOUNCEMENT FOR S2 >.<

Up to episode 9, I really liked this show. The last three episodes felt kind of lackluster but I guess they were okay given the circumstances.

Loved that last episode.
Epic fight ("funnily" enough, exactly when I thought "Hey Yato careful with the rocks Hiyori is there", rocks did threaten to crash her.). I love how she regained her memories, and her blushing when Yukine asked her how she did. (well, it's true that it's kind of embarrassing.), and her wanting to stay with them forever.

I really hope there is a second season (after all, Nora mentioned Father and it would be strange to leave it there). I'd love) to see Bishamon's arc being covered.

This final episode was great. I feared that it could have been something horrible but it was well done. The fight was amazing and Yato is the cutest chara of this season for sure^^
I want the second season so badly. It's shame if this ends just here.
9/10 for me, Noragami is my favorite anime of this season :D

Damn, great run for the season. Just love the balance of its comedy, action, and some dramatic moments in here. Pretty intense episode fighting against Rabo.

Yay, Hiyori got her memories back and she will never leave Yato as her decision. Dem blushes :D. 9/10.

This anime has potential, wished that it was 24 episodes. Aw well I will wait for a season 2 :D.

Pissed off Yato is not to be messed with. The ending theme really went well with all the playbacks of the anime season.

Gonna hope for a season 2 now. Bishamonten arc would definitely be great in animation.

Well that was a nice finale, awesome fight scene and lot's of 'romance' like parts.
Noragami 8/10.
EDIT - Even if we don't get a second season, the manga's been licensed in English by Kodansha Comics so I'll get to see what's in store either way.

It's a little off, barely acceptable. But one thing, when nora said she'll report to Father which implied about season 2. That's the only good thing in this episode.

One of the best anime this season. But still, cause this season is full of crap, that's why Noragami gets to shine. Nothing much special but still the enjoyment factor is there. Right balance of comedy, action, adventure and a tad of romance. 9/10.

Loved it and I'm sad it's over however I'l a little disappointed that the last 3 episodes when anime original and that it's a short anime, this could easily be an entire manga adaption with 24-26 eps, let's hope Bones sees the anime was populair and they decide to make a second season :P

It did end with a happy end. I feared 12 episodes would run into a problem with the finale but honestly, it was timed pretty well. For an ongoing series in print, it wrapped itself up well. There was nothing more 12 more episodes would of added to this given it's start, pacing, and finale.

I don't know if I want a second season. Nora's whole thing was to get Yato back to the way he was and worked with Rabo to try and achieve that. It failed. That is really the only thing left ongoing is Nora's malice as far as the anime is concerned.

Can't complain too much about Noragmi. Yukine was a bitch at first and his self discovery took way to long to finalize. Yato x Hiyori is why I stuck with this.

Challenging 7 or 8 to give.

This all confuses me. I did write out why but decided it wasn't worth it. Reading your pro vs con leaves me asking how this got a second best show (or the best non sequel or whatever).

Because everything else was poor or average or just "good" this season. Or at least, some shows started out well then declined (Hamatora, Inakon, Mikakunin etc.), some shows stayed average throughout (Nisekoi, Nobunagun, Hoozuki etc.) and some shows got a bit better later on but were still not the best (Wizard Barr, Chuunibyou etc.) For me, Gin no Saji surpasses everything but it's a sequel so Noragami takes the spot for non-sequel. I can't say I enjoyed Noragami the most out of everything though. Like I said, I didn't get any emotional impact or character relating from this show.

Music was great. Action shined in this episode and the characters were memorable and lovable. Here's to hoping for a second season. I'll be catching up with the manga in the meantime :)

It's been a while since I liked so much a sword fight. Great episode with great OST as usual. Definitely the best anime this season for me.

It looks like I'm the only one that likes the original character Rabo, I wish he didn't die so we could see more of him on a following season. But yeah, I haven't read the manga and I also want more from Bishamon (I love her seiyuu and character).

Very good. Very close to 10/10 for me, I loved every single episode and I'm eager to see/read more of Noragami.

Soooooooooooo... Should we expect Noragami: Brotherhood?

On a more serious note this anime needed at least 24 episodes, the whole Vaisravana ordeal was just swept aside and Rabo just didn't feel like much, had there been more time no lose ends would have been left off, except if they did decide to go with the "father" thing and tease a maybe, perhaps, second season. Don't get me wrong this was one of my favourite shows this season but those last few episodes lacked the originality the first few had.

8/10

Hope there's a second season but I don't really know if it's really needed. Most of the things were resolved in that episode
