THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Eh, I think I like the first OP song better. This one is alright I guess though as it's kinda catchy. Seems very similar to the first OP song with the style.

Really liked the comedy as usual.

Decent amount of action too. I think the episode was more like a warm up for events to come because it's trying to bring back the feel of Noragami again. Very entertaining though imo. 5/5 :>. The Bishamon action was pretty fun to watch and I think her abilities improved even more now.

What a boss

A dream that shows why that lady hates main god. New OP sounds pretty cool. I actually cannot compare which one's better.

Little mission showing that KajiKaji's character is improving himself in cooperation, having kind heart, and skills. Then showing that the three of them are as usual.

Then showing how the lady fights against the ayakashi attacking a girl and accepted her into the family. It seems like she periodically takes medicines.

It seems like the girl doesn't know why she forgot then and she still wants him to cure her.

KajiKaji's character meeting a shikigami boy who works for the lady. It seems like this season will be mainly centered about her.

I think I like first season ED more than this ED.

Man I missed this show a lot more than I thought.....Seeing these guys interact with one another again made me smile so much

All in all, this series came back in style and kept all of the elements that made Noragami such a hit and I really enjoyed every bit of action scenes that we got too....Also dat bath scene with the bae Bishamon tho

Art and animation looked good as well and the OST was great but even though I liked the visuals of the OP a, I feel like the first season OP song is way better....I loved the ED song though :D

Great start overall though and I can't wait to see this arc unfold because this episode alone had great characterization for Bishamon and Yukine and I really like that he befriended one of her regalia so I can't wait to see where their stories go especially since the hate in Yato is still real lol

Thought S1 was average,read the Bishamon arc in the manga thought it was average,dropped the manga,still going to watch this though cause it'll atleast be bearable/watchable and for a +1 completed.

Pretty good re-introduction to the plot and characters, with even a bit of action thrown in. Plus two Bishamon bath scenes! :D Seems at least one of her regalia's causing trouble, maybe more...feels good to have this series back! :D

Great first episode! Lots of stuff covered though the pacing in some parts was slow to me. The new OP is cool, but I don't think it can top the first OP.

so it begins again :) really looking forward to seeing how this will pan out.

Looks like we got a bit more of a glimpse into why Bishamon hates Yato.

Nice starting. The opening was worse than the one of the previous season, but it isn't bad. We see Yato doing one of his god errands and stuff related to Bishamon that look really interesting. I don't trust in the guy that tell her about the participation of Kazuma in Yato's purification, he seems to be a bad guy.

In another note, Yukine makes a friend shinki who is property of Bishamon... let's see what happens.

Animation is superb as with the previous season. The wacky OST is really good too.

S1 was below average. Hope this one will be better. First episode was average too, I really don't get that hype. Nice art btw, the only strong point.

Seems like more of the same from Noragami so far, and as usual it feels like something is brewing behind the scenes, this time with a couple of Bishamon's Regalias who seem more than a little shifty so far.

Not sure whether I like the OP or not yet, but I do quite like the ED.

Everything I expected and more. The music is on par with last season too, probably even better..

And lol at Yato's liver problems.

Starting off the Autumn season nicely! 5/5

Great start. I really like the OP. It's so catchy and the visuals are nice.


Interesting dream at the start. I'm guessing this season will focus more on Yato's past with Lady Bishamon.
She's pretty, badass and sexy. Looking forward to more of her this season.

I still feel like there wasn't a need for the second season. The first season went deep enough with the story and after it's final development it's hard to go back to happy funny everyday days again.

... the storyline with Bishamon was also developed quite far and now it's return yet again.

I hope that something big will happen soon, something that will make me excited about this series again because right now, I still think there was no need for second season.

Pretty fun episode to kick off this new arc. Nice opening, doesn't top the first but I wasn't expecting it to. The ending's nice as well. The art and animation is handled in typical Bones fashion, so it looks really clean. Its just great to see these characters and hear that godlike OST again.

The Durarara!! doesn't stop this year.

This episode was nice. It gets us back into the run of things. I'd forgotten quite how much I liked the OST of this.

Anyone else slightly disturbed that Bishamon made that girl her servent without her permission? You saved her cool but why go the extra step by making her a regalia?

Also making that many people your regalia loses the senses of specialness of being hers. Seems like any spirit can become hers if you show a little distress.

Nice! Missed this a lot ^^ OP & ED were both good.

Bisha's dream about Yato mercilessly killing all her regalia was brutal!

Man her teamwork with Kazuma and her other Regalia was BA!

Lol'd at Yato saying they'll scram after wrecking the house.

Now Hiyori notices that she had Yukine sleep with her. About time XD

Kugaha plotting some shit. U can smell it from meters away

Still don't get how they'll even add Ebisu's arc and not rush this :/

Great way to start off the season. Well executed comedy and just the right amount of action.

I like how it picks up exactly where we left off from S1. Good setup for next week.

5/5

Yeah, I've always felt he looks like Yukio, so do many others as they've pointed out.
