Great that this show is back, awesome first episode with plenty of brilliant character interaction and good comedy.

Opening is really good as well, as good as the first seasons if not better in my opinion.

Excellent start to season 2. Loved how they got into the action and the drama already. Makes you feel like you were never away.
Bishamon is the perfect war-goddess. <3

Cannot wait for the next episode already.

As expected Noragami doesn't waste a second even though it's the first episode. Action, secret doings and unfulfilled promises come to light already. I expect a lot of this new season and more episodes than the last. Really excited about this!

Just watching this episode reminds me how much I miss this anime. Glad to hear the OST again and seeing the great animation!

OP and ED are pretty good too!

My hype for this anime is also just getting larger.

5/5

YASS finally. Missed Noragami so much. That opening is really catchy, might be the one I'm listening to the most this season.

My body is ready.

So outrageously average at best. Nice OP, nice ED, nice fight visuals, everything else is utter trash if not also offensive. Same as S1.

Will keep watching for now in case the plot becomes interesting.

Lots of nice setup here, though it's not a particularly impressive season premiere.

I'm still not really fond of the humor on this show. I'd probably enjoy the show more if everything was super-serious.

I'm convinced Yato has no real intention to satisfy his dream of being rich and famous, considering how he wastes the little money he has on junk, over and over again. It's more like he did something really bad in the past and is putting himself through living hell to atone for it.

Thanks for that, I had problem explaining why I didn't enjoyed this episode - and it's like that they took the step back. From comedy to drama is something natural, but from drama to comedy once again... And I'm not fond of this humor neither.

Well, that was disappointing. They tried to reintroduce us to the world and setting despite this being a sequel, which made a lot of moments seem awkward and forced. It's alright, though, since it's only an issue with the start of the season. The second half was definitely better, and there shouldn't be any issues with the rest of the season, so yeah. Bishamon arc hype.

Also this OP and this ED are MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Whole episode was forced - naked Bishamon and Hiyori's panties were the worst ones.

I hope that next episode will be better. I still haven't read the manga - it'll be available in my country next month, so I'm still waiting - but I really enjoyed the previous season. Can anybody explain me if the end of it was filler or not, because I'm not sure?

It's not filler. Everything is canon so far. I'm sorry to hear that you don't enjoy the humor :( If it makes you feel better, the Bishamon arc is pretty serious.

Btw- the manga is so worth it. It's my personal favorite manga.

Don't like this OP as much as last seasons, liked the episode though and it was nice to hear some of the tracks on the soundtrack like Noratan and lurk in the dark.

Bishamon's bed is HUGE. I bet she could fit all her regalia in it xD Well maybe not...But her bed is like the size of my room...
I bet Yato will re-think helping Hiyori get her body back to normal after what she said about "sticking with him until he fixes her".
She should just look for a Philosophers Stone xD

I am SO happy that Noragami is back!

I like how it felt natural to be back on the action, no question mark faces for me. I had forgot some things, but when I saw them again I was just like "oooooh yeah that's how it should be!" Like the rend thing and stuff.

The opening isn't quite as amazing as the one on first season, but I'm sure I will learn to like it a lot.

Not sure because can't remember shit man, but did it jump back on the manga track? I think I have seen it before in different series that the first season goes for anime original ending and suddenly second season is back on track. Don't know, can't remember.

Anyway I'm so excited for this all! Can't wait for the next episode... Or the one after that... So yeah...

It's nice to hear, I've read somewhere that the end of first season was filler O.O And I really like Noragami, but I prefer it serious, so... The humor part is quite disappointing. Everyone was so plain. Maybe not Bishamon but this episode lacked something. Like spark?

The end of the first season (3 last episodes with Rabo) is filler :/

Aww man, I was so happy for Yukine that he had finally met a guy his age that he could be friends with. It really sucks that he's Bishamon's shinki...
I really hope it's not a trap. That smirk at the end was not comforting...

The animation seemed really bad this episode, I have no idea why. Did anyone else notice this?



Otherwise decent start, looking forward to Bishamon and what she'll bring to the table.

The expectations are not disappointed, the narrative picks up the thread of history discreetly. I hope that in the meantime, in addition to running the plot, is also able to characterize even more characters. Good job of Bones, drawings and animations are decent while the sets are of a good standard.

I wouldn't say it was downright bad, but definitely worse than the first season's first episode.

Loved how they kept my favorite OST (Conversation Heart) from last season when Bishamon welcomed in the new spirit to the household. Very heartwarming and soothing :)

Can't wait to see how things will turn out between Bishamon and Yato. And also if Hiyori will get her condition fixed but lol I almost doubt it.

Fixing it would require her having to sever contact with Yato and Yukine and cease to get involved in their world, which would remove her as a main character - so I doubt it.

Another season and again there is this problem with slapstick humor which will ruin the tone of the show. One moment someone died the other someone cracks up a joke.

Would be sooo much better without Bishamon and her sub-plot.

I watch Noragami for Yato. Not for this blonde chick.

Right?! Right. I think her seiyuu shines best when she's playing characters with a deeper voice like Kurapika and Bishamon.

The first season of Noragami was average to me. I felt like it wasted a lot of time on drama and it could've been more.

The OP for Noragami Aragoto is pretty awesome, I love it. The episode itself was okay. I'm not a diehard fan of this series so I'm not going to sugarcoat my comments or defend it just because of its popularity.

I'm liking Bishamon a bit more in this episode, I felt like I didn't get to know her that well in the first season. I was half expecting that long, gray-haired dude poisoning her bath water or some shit like that.

What a stylish S2 start!
Lady Bishamon is really hung-up on killing Yato!
Looks like there will be more trouble/conflict for the Shinki's (regalia)
nice ED by the high-pitched Tia!
4/5.

Bit of a slow recap episode, but at least the battles were good. The best thing about this series is without a doubt Yato. I still haven't warmed up to Yukine after last season's fiasco, and Hiyori feels like one of the most pointless tritagonist.... Let's hope this series can change my views a bit. I'm looking forward to seeing how this arc unfolds.

Honestly, I liked the first Opening and Ending better.. But oh well!
The 2nd Opening has the same style as the 1st- not much difference there.
The 2nd Ending is a little bit more joyful-sounding than the 1st one, but it's good as well.

I sometimes get the feeling that the Animation style is too.. shiny.
Though I'm not complaining much! xD

Hm... But what really bugs me is that the 1st Season, at the end,
Hiyori made a wish and payed Yato for him to stay with her for ever, or was it vice versa ..?
Now, she just said that after she gets her body fixed, she'll leave him?

Maybe they should get their facts straight, first and foremost--
Or maybe it's to re-awaken our memory of Yato's promis,
or to make it seem like Hiyori's pretty worried if her soul slips out at a very bad time..


Buuuut! I do like that they made a flashback from the 1st Season :D
It kinda makes (some) fans all: "Yaaay! I remember that! Aww, Hiyorin!"- ish.

And another yay for having the same Voice Actors and Actresses!
Well, so far at least. According to MAL's database :3

^ all that was 164 words... o.o
Okay, I should sleep.......
