THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
About time for the counterattack.

I'm glad to see Yukine doing alright after that shit which went down against Bishamon. The fierce battle between her and Yato is really something imo. It's more of an interpersonal struggle for Bishamon because of her past so I feel like she is a bit blinded by revenge.

Not sure how I feel about Bishamon's change this episode but her appearance reflects on her ambitions. D:
I'm glad to see Bishamon's comrades being so loyal to her though.

Another strong episode. This arc has been very interesting imo.

Sword back to normal? No, becoming two swords! The "doctor" triggered the infection, and for survival, Sawashiro-san's character became crazy for killing HiroC's character. Use of shinki also affects her infection on them. The lady shinki, being regretted for being used, got FukuJun's character and main girl out.

The "doctor" also released a monster to kill rest of shinkis to repeat the history. HiroC's character almost killed Sawashiro-san's character under ex-shinki's influence. FukuJun's character sacrificed himself and told her the truth to stop her.

It seems like they are going after the "doctor" next because of what Sawashiro-san's character said sensing weirdness in them.

Edit: As I thought, this arc ends next ep. and new arc starts on ep.7 (More casts announced for next arc: http://www.ota-suke.jp/news/154487).

I didn't expect that I would enjoy this season that much (because I didn't like 1st one that much).
Again great episode.
5/5
And I love Bones's animation and art, even big monsters are not done in CG, I really appreciate that.

Holy crap Yukine! :D He's stepped up so much from Season One. :D So...wait...Bishamon knew Kazuma was "sincere and loyal" enough to transform like Yukine...and still threw him out so hastily...*facepalm*. Heh, loved Yato finally lecturing her! :D Of course she's too far gone to listen though. So blinded by rage that she makes her other regalia suffer. Hmmm...so that brat Nora still holds such power over Yato? Nice save Hiyori. Not that I'd mind Bishamon being killed, but Kugaha's obnoxious too so he needs to go. :D UNJUSTIFIED resentment! Tell that fool Yato! :D Aaaaand Kazuma with the sacrifice...he's waaaaay too good for Bishamon. :D But wait...he never told her the truth of the past...as if she, a GOD, couldn't have bothered to try and find out herself. Aaaaand she's sorry.....yeah. Welp next week should wrap this up, hopefully Bishamon won't drag down the second half of this season like she did the first. :D

Dat deus ex machina with Yukine, as expected. Even more annoying when one of the best characters in Kazuma dies and Yukine survives simply cos he's a protagonist; saying that, I like Yukine much more now than in the first season. Still, this entire arc would be better if it wasn't for the fact that it was entirely triggered and maintained by Bishamon's stupidity and flat-out refusal to see common sense.

Who said Kazuma is dead? When Viina was talking about dead Shinki, she was referring to the ones killed by Kugaha's phantom. I know he got slashed pretty bad, but c'mon, Yukine was just cut in half and he came back... I don't think it's that sure that Kazuma's dead.

An episode full of action and emotions...
Does anyone know if Bishamon's main (battle) Regalias died?
It would be very sad if she lost all (or almost all) of her family again...

But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Thank fck Yukine is alive. So he became a blessed regalia. His new form as a dual-weilding katana is even more badass.


What a sad episode. It's hard not to feel sorry for Bishamon and her regalias. And Kazama too.. (ಥ﹏ಥ) I hope he's alive.

I was pretty disappointed that they didn't just let Yukine die. Or at least they could've come up with something that felt like less of an asspull if you're going to have him live. Otherwise there's no point in making a cliffhanger like that

Bisha just went absolutely bat shit insane there.

Awesome fight. Yukine's Hafuri evolution was nice. Too OP XD But well if he didn't evolve Yato would've gotten REKT.

Bisha's strength is crazy. But the way all her Regalia got blighted was just too merciless. She wasn't even thinking anymore. Good going Kazuma finally snapping her the hell out of it.

Loved what Hiyori said. It is exactly right. Yato and Yukine are way more of a family than Bisha's "family"

Time to own some Kuga shit. The way he's been killing all those Regalia's pretty damn brutal.

The part where Yato seemed to have lost control of himself thinking about Nora's words is definitely foreshadowing something in the future.

Yukine gone full badass mode.

Great episode-really feel for Bishamon here these last few episodes...such hardship.

Next week to wrap up this arc by the looks of it, hope it finishes well and that doctor bastard gets what he deserves.

Now that's exactly what I want from a shonen - intensity, consistent tone, perfect presentation of its story. This arc is definitely doing at very fast pace, but it only adds to the intensity and addictiveness as opposed to first season which was way slower and maybe not as engaging as this season.

Well, Yukine dying would've been quite a twist and an interesting turn of events to say the least, but it's quite frankly impossible since he is a main character. And just like with SnK, the cliffhanger only adds to the overall intense, thriller feel the show has. I mean, really Noragami's story isn't something wow worthy, but the presentation of it absolutely perfect, I really don't have any complaints.

Totally agree with this. Specially last episode the way they intermingled the past and the present was brilliant.

At a loss of words right now.
I'll just say one thing :
Kugaha is gonna get his ass whipped next episode !!

Oh and regards to Yukine for being a Hafuri :3 He deserved it.
I don't know why people write that they are approachable persons,

Many people say Bishamon is annoying/stupid. I guess it's the same as when many people couldn't stand Yukine in season 1 and look at him now: sacrificing himself and evolving for Yato.

After all, this series is all about making mistakes and learning from them. You might dislike Bishamon or Yukine, but I love them because they're flawed and complex.

Not really an asspull as it was already mentioned before. Like Bishamon said, Kazuma was already shown to be a blessed Regalia. Suzuha also mentioned it in Episode 2. Blessed Regalias are created when a Regalia sacrifices their life for their master. It doesn't always happen, though, nothing can guarantee the outcome of the sacrifice. Blessed Regalias are very rare and powerful, which is why many Gods wish to have one.

There's the based Bones sakuga we all know and love.

Was tempted to give this a 4/5 because Yukine's plot armour but ehhh, 5/5 cos I love Noragami 2 much. This arc has too much edge anyway. Yukine dying woulda make it a fuck ton worse.

Tbh, I feel that Yato is holding back. He doesn't want to accept Nora or go back to his old ways, so it think he handicapped himself by using Yukine Vs. Bish.

Another great episode! So far this season has been really good. It takes the characters that we have come to like, know, and actually care about over the course of the first season and puts them through serious emotional turmoil that possesses real weight. I am impressed. This is what a second season should be, in my opinion.
