Welp, I'm glad to see Hiyori alright. Fun way for her to wake up too lmao

Kinda nice to hear more about the prominent factions of this episode though.
Also, we find out even more about Bishamon. I find that her kind side is a lot more attractive by the way she is described. I'm glad to see the show keeping up with the pace as Yato and Yukine heads into action.

Not sure what I still think about Bishamon's ambitions tbh...she seems to be a bit one sided on her goal. Oh Bishamon~ the action was pretty good. I think this episode had a climax with her feud against Yato...

Her past, violent so I guess it's somewhat understandable how Bishamon feels in the present story line.

HiroC's character killed FukuJun's character's ex-owner? That's the reason Sawashiro-san's character hated him... but why FukuJun's character says he's savior? That lady shinki just realized the "doctor's" goal. He wants HiroC's character to do the job for him and destroy the family.

It was FukuJun's character who wished to HiroC's character to destroy the family before that, seeing her getting infected for unknown reason like this time, and getting more infected from other shinki's suspicions becoming worse. KajiKaji's character died from protecting his owner while the fight against Sawashiro-san's character that set by that enemy.

This was the most intense episode of this series yet....And that cliffhanger.....

There is so much on the line here for both sides that this episode was pure insanity and the emotions were really freaking high in just about everyone

Seeing the backstory of why Bishamon hates Yato was pretty interesting and tragic at the same time but Kazuma did the right thing imo and it sucks tat Bishamon doesn't realize this

Amazing episode overall and the fight scene was really awesome....I really wonder how Yukine will survive this

Well Yukine's obviously not dead, but Bishamon is now officially terrible. So Yato actually saved her ass in the past, as expected, big mistake not letting her die there as she clearly wasn't smart enough to learn her lesson. Or wait no, she's just "too kind"....riiiiiight. :D She's kinda like one of those hoarders. She has waaaaay too many pets, only instead of finding all the cat skeletons when they finally clean her house, one of them tried to kill her. Well let's see how much lower she can sink before Yato can help bail her out again...

Directing for this episode was pretty well done, created some good tension. Lackluster animation still bothers me though but it was a bit better this time around. Definitely the most enjoyable episode of Aragoto so far. Interested in seeing how they're going to wrap this one up.

Dat Cliffhanger!! Bravo Bones. At this pace they're definitely gonna be able to do Ebisu's arc too. I thought it would be impossible without rushing the shit out of it but the director is one BASED dude.

Keeping it intense throughout the episode. Nice to finally see the full YatoxKazumaxVeena flashback and what happened. Yato was indeed so friggin cool in the past. Now he's a joke lol

Bisha's just too bitchy at this point of the series <_< She just can't even realize that Yato friggin saved her ass centuries ago. How the hell could she just exile Kazuma without even listening to anything he has to say after spending all those centuries with him. That's just too f***n stupid.

And besides the "Ma" family were just a bunch of annoying assholes from what we saw. They started killing eachother first. Yato did nothing wrong.

The Kofuku betting scene was cute.

THAT DAMN CLIFFHANGER!!!!!111 Omg, this ep was so intense! I suspected the rest of the former Bishamon clan had to be killed for her to survive, but I was surprised it was Kazuma who asked Yato to do it. Also, the succession part was unexpected.

The pink-haired traitor is having second thoughts. She's gonna redeem herself somehow, I think. But she's got a death flag too.

Can't wait for the next episode!

All of the drama and seriousness of this arc is seriously undercut by the fact that it's only happening cos Bishamon is an absolute moron who's kindness blinds her to the fact that her own Regalia are killing her cos she has so many and that Yato saved her life all that time ago. Should be interesting seeing how she reacts to killing a Regalia herself (assuming that's actually happened, though I'm expecting some deus-ex machina to save Yukine given the kind of series this is).

This was a good episode.

Kazuma was the one who told Yato to slay the "Ma" clan in order to save his master.

For anime only watchers, if you think this episode was amazing, you're darn right it was! You want it to be more amazing? Read the manga after season 2 gets over. You will be spellbound.

I don't like cliffhangers... :'(

No surprises here though I've read the manga after all, but amazing as always.

Every week I just love the opening more and more and I really need to rethink if this or the S1 OP is better.

HOLY SHIIIIIIT. That was intense, especialy the cliffhanger... I'm pretty sure the next episode will be a blood bath and Yato will go berserk on Bishamons ass.

The highlight of today's anime, in my opinion. Pretty crazy how we're only four episodes in and this already tops S1.

The fight between Bishamon and Yato definitely lived up to Bones' standards. Everything from the art and animation to the choreography looked splendid. And holy shit, that cliffhanger. O.O

Haven't seen the episode yet. But according to the comments they have adapted the chapter well.

I think a lot of non-manga readers will be very surprised about 'Yato, the Savior' and the huge misunderstanding.

RIP Yukine.

About 99% sure he didn't die but if he really did then I might need to rethink how good this story is. Then again as much as I would like to have a major death, the process of finding new weapon for Yato would be too annoying. So yep, Yukine isn't dead. Also props for him for maning up in this episode.

Great stuff, hate cliffhangers cuz I wants moar, but oh well.

Didn't really like Bishamon from the first time she got introduced, I wonder which part of her body she uses for thinking...

Yukineeeeeee ;_; omg

I've wanted to pick up the manga ever since I started watching season one, but when I kept putting it off and found out there was a season two coming I held off on it. I really want to read ahead but I just want to see what happens nextttttt. ugh.

Such a powerful episode, this season has been so amazing compared to the pace of the first. I'm dying to see what happens next, and really hope this season will keep up the pace and bring on a third season to continue on animating the incredible story!!

Kazuma's backstory was really good, I don't remember Noragami to be so dark in the first season.

Bishamon needs to calm down a bit. Yato saves her life in that moment and she is trying to kill him despite this. What an ungrateful woman, lol.

Yato looked really badass in the past compared with the butt monkey of the present. I like Nora, btw.
