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

That's one of my main concerns too. Depending on how Bones paces it, this season may not be as decent as the prequel, but we'll see in due time.

Dat OST 10/10. The old OP was better but this one is still really good, I'm happy they kept the same visual style.

Great start to the new season! I've missed these characters so much!

Hiyori is as clueless as ever! Especially when she thinks that her and Yukine had an illicit sexual encounter just because they slept in the same bed before! LOL!

Bishamon is one BA god, but has way too many shinki!
So glad that I'm not a huge manga reader, because the manga readers WHINE WAY TOO MUCH and have to RUIN every adapted anime for the ANIME ONLY WATCHERS!

Is it me, or does that kazuma/glasses guy with bishamon totally look like the gun totting brother from Ao no Exorcist?

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

It's funny you mention that seeing as how they're both voiced by the same guy, Jun Fukuyama.

Anyway, I just watched the first season around a month ago so my wait for this wasn't that long, but it's nice to be able to watch more Noragami. Yato is still as hilarious as ever (thanks to based Hiroshi Kamiya), and it'll be interesting to see how Yukine's friendship with one of Bishamon's Regalia develops.

Ah, how I was exited for the Bishamon Arc to be animated! If this series follows the manga, we'll be in for a treat.

The animation is superb and I love the bright, vivid style of the whole surroundings and character designs.

Yato's back to being Yato again, yay ^-^

I wonder how many chapters will be animated though.

Finally! I missed Noragami so much.
The scene with baby was funnier in the manga.
Kuguha's on the scene.
OP is great, scenes with Ebisu, I wish that arc was animated as well, but I'd prefer not rushing things.

Based on the op,I have an idea of the arcs that are being are animated.I defintitely prefer the old op and ed but these new ones aren't bad.
Hiyori reminds me of those Ayakashi with how she's always commenting on Yato smelling nice lol.
That scene with the baby's ayakashi reflection was still creepy just as in the manga.

Just became a fan of Noragami yesterday (watched the whole season in one day)

And today season two came out! Yay thanks Yato (Wasn't it supposed to come out tomorrow? 3rd October?)

Anyways whats with that thing about Hiyori saying 'I hired you to fix my body! My soul keeps slipping out of it!' ? Is it because she doesn't realize it that withouth it she wouldn't see any gods? Because she clearly stated at the end of last season that she wants to be with this geezer for ever?

...and I instantly loved the fact that Yato wears a track suit haha. Good choice mate, the most comfortable thing you can wear!

Yes, Noragami is back was really looking forward to that.
Way to kick things off, Yato's past revealed and it seems like him and Bishamon got some business to deal with it.
Great episode.

So much hype!

Great to see Yato again :)

Took Hiyori way too long to realise what she was doing with Yukine XD

I definitely liked the first opening better.

Based Bishamon and her baths :3

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.

A boring first episode, however, is ok.

Lol. I think it would've been a better decision to have finished the whole Bishamon arc rather than having that terrible anime original thing near the end. I know it's because it would've been really difficult to have a 1 cour or even full 2 cour with this arc + later stuff, but it still left a bad taste in my mouth when season 1 ended at such an awkward part. I've kind of lost interest in Noragami the manga as well, but hopefully this season will get me back into it.

Good continuation from season one, if you disregard the ending in season one. Nice to see some of my favorite characters back, Yato, Yukine, and Kazuma.

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.

Subtle panty shots are back... Why Bones? <.<

Anyway, great first episode. I think I heard new awesome OSTs (Iwasaki is a genius), Yato was awesome doing Yato things, and Bishamon is based as always. This arc was pretty cool in the manga so I can't wait to see it all animated.

As of now this is AOTS. Honestly the only things that could top this are Owarimonogatari or Haikyuu!!

I am yet to watch the EP because i want to ask , should i watch the OVA before this ?

Watch OVA 2 after you finish this season. You can watch the 1st OVA no problem plus its pretty damn funny but the second OVA is basically the conclusion of the Bishamon arc that is currently airing - it was bundled with the manga as an extra.

So it's a spoiler really, and you will be confused if you do decide to watch it.

I like where this is going, seems to have a lot more promise then the first season so far.
Also the more Bishamon the better.

Anyone know if it's recommended to watch the OVA of Noragami or can I skip it?

Don't. The OVA's happens after this Arc and I hear they're confusing others a bit.

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.

Totally agree. It was a catchy song, but nothing to compare with the OP from S1!!

It was a nice 1st episode, although it was kinda safe, like not much happened except reintroducing the main characters. Looking forward to the real meat of the story.

ED 2 is better than ED 1 but I hate the running part - in fact, I hate the running trope in all anime Endings.

Love the OP 2 visuals and the song is catchy as hell!!!
Although OP 1 - Hello Sleepwalkers is WAAAYY BETTER in terms of freshness in style and visuals really.
This opening - Kyōran Hey Kids!!" by THE ORAL CIGARETTES felt like a repeat but I definitely don't hate it: Ebisu's entrance was badass and the little fight between Bishamon and Yato is a continuation from OP 1 which was cool.

Hmmm, I thought the studio were going to just introduce Ebisu - the OP suggest otherwise...don't ruin his arc Bones!

Anyway, how I missed this show, Yato is PRECIOUS!!
Episode one could have been better though. It was a tad boring despite following the manga and continuing from where we left off.

Actually I don't think boring is the right word but it needed more 'umph', still it's just the 1st episode plus it WILL get better.
There's a reason why the Bishamon arc is popular.

EP 1 - Overall 3.5/5

Didn't really like the new opening song and the visuals were okay.

I don't really think a second season was necessary but it was a decent start nonetheless. Most of the OST were reused from S1 and there were some noticeable derps in the art this episode so hopefully it doesn't continue.

So far, a fine episode. It's just nice to see trio and the other characters back again. As expected, nothing much really happens and it's more or less of an introduction to what's gonna happen later. But overall, I really enjoyed it! Oh, the ED was really nice too. Can't for both OP/ED full versions.

I didn't really care for Bishamon that much until this arc in the manga, so don't write it off just because it's a Bishamon arc. Your views on her might change after this.
Can't wait to see more!

I feel like they put a lot more money into the animation this season. Almost felt like movie level animation there at some points.

Man I can't wait Bishamon arc really gets started. This Arc is what made me fall in love with this series.

The animation is fantasic. Also this was a nice re-introduction episode. Not to crazy but still hints at something more.

Can't wait for next episode.

YAY!! Noragami is back. The OP song is pretty good. ED Song is not bad.
Nice to see everyone again.
Yato doing babysitting duties. Surprisingly he is good with children.
Bishamon being bad ass and taking down those phantoms and recruits another spirit.
Looking forward to seeing more next week.

Noragami is back !! at last I was hoping so much to see this group again <3 this first episode has shown he will be a little more focused on Bishamon. The opening and closing are still great.
