A lot of feelings this episode.

Kirihito imo really has an odd way of expressing himself. Some of the silly parts with the maid cosplay was kinda cute I guess. I think the show has a fun way of balancing the mood each episode so..

Was interesting to see Tomoe take on that War God although I think he might of underestimated his opponent a bit there.

She's amused at him not afraid at all. Izanami knows that he is not human and rather sees him as new toy. Nanami ate hell's food, so that she can help that guy. That guy with human body is really that monster who attacked the shop in previous ep. Showing how he got the body and lived as "Kirihito". She found him. Then to escape.

The little helpers played with one of the items before receiving the notice about Nanami. Tomoe went to save her, but that god who didn't like her sealed the door, so he needs to use that item that little helpers used to return to youkai form. It also showed the relation between that youkai and Tomoe... they were first in good term, but somehow separated for some argument.

Confession again?

I loved the new episode.
Especially I listen Suwabe-sensei´s hot voice. As Akura-Ou the low tone reminded Grimmjow, of course. (>_<)

Man this ep was nice!

Loved Akura-Oh/Kirihito's flashback. The real Kirihito was so sweet. Dem feelz when Akura apologized to "his" mom :*)
The way he hugged Nanami to feel her warmth after she found him was cute too. I just can't dislike this guy. His development is quite amazing throughout the series. Looking forward to see more of his scenes animated :3 And Damn was he jelly at the end. The flashes of his memories with Tomoe were really nice too.

Tomoe's parts were BA!! The way his seal was released and he owned was awesome! Dat hug with Nanami was soooo cute >.< OTP no doubt :3

Actually, she used one of her talisman to change it to a sweet potato doughnut from the surface world before she took a bite, so it wouldn't affect her. Her intent was to trick Izanami into thinking she had to stay (though I'm not sure she succeeded in tricking Izanami, but that's a different issue)

Akura-Oh/Kirihito is a really, really well done character! He's not one of the good guys, he evil, but that is not all he is, he has a real personality.

I wasn't aware that Tomoe as a familiar had different powers than Tomoe as a youkai.

Kyaah~ Nanami and Tomoe's embrace

Too bad they don't know the true identity of Kirihito yet :/

Lol, Izanami's cat familiar when she was exposed to light vs. me when I finish pulling an all-nighter and my sister decides to open the blinds.

I really like Kirihito/Akura-Oh. He seems to have a very sweet side, apologizing to the real Kirihito's mother. And yet he's still bad. I'm really looking forward to see more of him and his character development. And the way Tomoe came to Nanami's rescue was very sweet!
I don't want to grow up.

Kirito's backstory was pretty sad.

Lots of feels but nice ep.

Best episode of the bunch. Superbly well-paced, and a hot Tomoe to boot. :33

It was a pretty nice meeting with Izanami. With the goddess capturing Kirihito and seeing how Akura-Oh came to be.

It was nice to see Nanami trying her best and actually succeeding for the most part and rescued Kirihito and teven touched Akura-Oh's heart!

The familiars being not of the smartest to not camp the exit, but they really did burn it!

Tomoe going yokai form >.< and managing to open the seal that the god of war set too! Really shows the loyalty and bond of the two ^^

The reunion of the two yokai, really hyped after seeing a glimpse, the feels that is going to come!

Really great episode :) Those flashbacks from the past arc!! Despite hiding Izanami's face, they animated those parts well.

That was awesome, can't wait for Tomoe to realize who Kirihito is, his words making him uneasy is telling. As usual, Nanami is best.

Great episode even if I already know what happened (just finished catching up to the manga!). They really adapted it well and I find it nice how they kept the identity/face of the Lady Goddess of the Netherland hidden because I actually don't like her "real character" in the manga. So they rearranged it quite nicely in the anime and even made it more mysterious. And of course, props to the intro. Those voices are really cute. hahah.

Oh Nanami so easily eating something so she could stay and help a suspicious someone she just met. xD I could just imagine how absolutely horrified Tomoe would be, even without seeing how she reacted to her going missing. :P

Well okay, Kirihito's backstory was decent, still not like him very much tho.
Tomoe x Nanami's moment was gold anyway, expecting more moments like that in the next episode.

Yes Kirihito x Nanami is my OTP, it's just so my type of pairing!

On a side-note, When I first watching Kamisama Hajimemashita, I would easily get bored with it. I mean, it is a nice show but it gets so relaxing that I wanna sleep. Never would have I thought that I would begin to like this show so much.

It's nice to see Nanami and Tomoe reunited again. The distance between them was starting to get a bit annoying. I mean, they have such a good chemistry, being separated fade the best part of the show.

Anyway, Kirihito (or whatever that demon lord is called) does seem to have a bit of compassion after all. Maybe it's because he was betrayed due to the lack of it. From what I understood from those flashbacks we saw, Kirihito has attack/killed Tomoe past lover.

That narration at the beginning was particuliarly hilarious xD

Yeah, I know what you mean, it was the same for me. I really enjoy it now!
Btw, I like KirihitoxNanami a lot, it's the kind of pairing that I'm attracted. BUT TomoexNanami will always be my OTP, they are just TOO CUTE haha
This episode was awesome, it was well balanced, and we could watch really sweet moments ^u^
Btw, Am I the only one that thought those kids were two boys? It shocked me a little when I saw that one of them is a girl hahaha XD

We finally get to see Kirihito's past! It seemed that Akura-Oh and tomoe were once friends, but had a fight, and now kirihito's happy(not) to see tomoe again.

Saying the truth, I can't help but think that something's going on between them. Especially when Kirihito say tomoe, and his saying how he missed tomoe, oh and also when he demanded to know who 'that girl' is to tomoe, making me think that he's jealous...GRRRGHHH

oh and this picture...

Is Tomoe really SITTING on Kirihito!?? (WHATTT!???)~~~~>///<~~~~~

Damn I need to quit watching this anime when I'm tired.

I think I'm gonna stop here for tonight because I feel like I'm not enjoying this as much as I should be. Hopefully I will be up to finishing this tomorrow night.

I would have thought tomoe would recognise kirihito's voice, then again he was occupied at the time.

akura-oh's past was interesting. how did he die/lose his body though?

Hmm, I thought Nanami would pull through somehow and not need saving.
Still, a good episode. I don't know why a Youkai is stronger than a familiar and able to defeat a god.

I thought Akura-ou was going to kiss Nanami, but of course he just hugged her.

Tomoe is still #1. He even turned back into a demon and fought the God War just to save her.

Tomoe x Nanami is OTP.

Aww, the guy who was originally Kirihito was so cute! So sad he had to die. The new Kirihito (Akura-ou) is good-looking though.

I liked Kirihito. He is my new Ensemble DarkHorse. I think that he is cool. Also, I am happy Tomoe beat that Neko-devil and that annoying War deity. He became a Youkai in order to save Nanami, and that is about as heartwarming you can get. Also, we see Tomoe receiving Kami-mail from Otohiko. Good episode.

Without change,we end up becoming the very person we hate.

I was dead until the moment I met you. I was a powerless corpse pretending to be alive. Living without power, without the ability to change my course, was bound to lead me to a slow death.
