Freaking Kugaha is back. Well at least Yukine took care of him quite quickly.
Bishamon looks so much like Saber.
Bishamon throwing around Izanami was pretty cool.
Looks like they need Hiyori to help with getting Yato out from the Underworld.

Kugaha gets taken out by Yukine. Really dislike him so I'm glad that happened. Bishamon going to the underworld to save Yato was nice, her tell Yato how hating him allowed her to move forward was cool.

Not much happened this week. Budget saving episode for next week perhaps. Manga purists are the changes really that bad?

My personal opinion... I think the stuff about the changes is being a little over dramatized. There are quite a few changes between the manga and anime, but that's always to be expected, and none of them have taken away from my enjoyment of the show. And to be fair, some changes HAD to be made if they wanted to fit the arc into the time they had available.

A lot of bondage this episode. Izanami has an odd concept of friendship.

Bishamon went full saber. That makes me only wonder why she didn't use Aiha sooner?! If she had such a badass armor, she could have used her earlier...

Poor Yato, I feel like he's being manipulated by Nora again :/
And her, she's being manipulated by Father. So in the end, Father is probably a massive asshole.

Well, I do believe manga readers have a right to be pissed at what Bones has done. This episode was supposed to be BEAST, full of tears, shocking revelations and lots of plot advancement. Not only for the Ebisu arc, but for the story of Noragami overall. I guess it was still a good and enjoyable episode if you haven't read the manga. Otherwise, it's a big disappointment.

They did not include one VERY IMPORTANT thing that was supposed to happen this episode. Sure, they could still add it next week but they will have to make some rearrangements and I doubt that it'll be so emotional.

The main problem, though, is that some of the changes they made weren't even because they didn't have enough time, but because they want an anime original ending. Basically, adapting two chapters per episode like they have been doing with the first half of the season, they could have adapted this arc perfectly, ending the season with Chapter 39 (aftermath/conclusion of Ebisu arc). Instead of that, they started rushing things and picking only a few events from certain chapters and changing the order.

For example: Yukine going to Bishamon and saying "I want to sacrifice my name for my master" wasn't in the manga and it was quite redundant and stupid since he already did that in the previous arc. Instead of that and some other invented details, they could have done Yato and Nora's conversation right. Nora did not say that she was calm because she was with Yato, but because she knew that Father would come to save them. Not only that, but they actually talked about their past and Father. This was SO important. And now it looks like Hiiro is the nicest person when she's actually not. That wasn't changed due to not having enough time, but because of something else.

A third season is still possible, but it won't be as good because a lot of foreshadowing and acts that would lead to future events have been lost. There was a point to Kugaha being there. And Ebisu wasn't supposed to know how to get Yato out of there and how you need a human to do that. If he knew that, why didn't he plan accordingly?! It was supposed to be a mysterious little female God... and manga readers speculate that this God was actually... *drum roll* Amaterasu. So yeah, big thing to be omitted when considering the future of the series...

If someone doesn't care about spoilers, here's a list of changes the anime made this episode. http://blessedyuki.tumblr.com/post/134998250020/noragami-aragoto-ep-11-rant

The first thing on that list is the thing that really bothers me. If they somehow skip that scene entirely for an anime original ending or some other bullshit, I'm going to be upset. Goodbye potential season 3.

So... Basically.. Nothing happened, right?
- Yato is still stuck in the underworld
- Hiyori and Yukine are still in the real word
- Ebisu escaped in the previous episode...
You can skip this episode without giving up much of the plot.

Bisha came to the rescue!

I wonder how heaven is going to punish Ebisu? If they do...

Ebisu said there is a way bring Yato back does he mean a revival even though Yato does not have a name?

~Great episode!!!

Ugh, Kugaha's back again. Someone should permanently get rid of him already.

Doesn't really feel like much happened, given that we're still in more or less the same position where we started the episode at. Also, kinda surprised Kugaha appeared again so soon and that it was so anticlimactic and pretty much pointless.


I felt the same, actually. I was looking forward to a lot happening in this episode since the last few episodes had been pretty fast paced. Oh well. It was enjoyable, but I couldn't help but feel slightly disappointed by the sudden slow pace. Also Kuguha was quite annoying.

Bishamon bashing Izunami's head around was hilarious though.
Gotta love Bisha~

I can't believe that a certain character came back early on in this episode. Luckily, this character ended up being dealt with, so hopefully they won't suddenly pop up yet again within the last couple of episodes.

Yato gets an unexpected rescuer to try to get him out of the underworld, but I think it really had to be this person who did it. Considering the history this character has with Yato, I think this act will ultimately help lay a foundation for healing.

The story has become more intense, and it's become clear we're almost at the end of the series. I can't wait to see how this story arc concludes.

This time is Yato who needs to be saved and Bishamon is committed to this (she really seemed Saber in this episode), I liked the action and battles in this episode and also I was more curious about the relationship between Yato and Hiiro, I'm looking forward to seeing final development of the anime ..

Well, I think BONES just managed the more "happy" story for this anime by missing some parts of the manga. But I still enjoy watching it tho.

I do hope there's a good explanation next episode to why Hiyori can help get Yato out because it kinda felt out of nowhere and a bit too convenient, says Ebisu.

I loved the episode! I did expect a cliff hanger again...
I always wanted to see Bisha to Yato's rescue~ sadly I dont see many BishaXYato shippers.. and to be honest... deep inside my heart I was kinda wishing Yukine would become one of the gods present there's nora. If its them they would surely release him after reaching the underworld but oh well I dont want our beloved blessed shinki to sully his name either. Though I wish he would keep trusting Yato... having him getting reminded again and again that he is Yato's one and only is kinda starting to annoy me

Kugaha causing trouble because Bishamon didn't eliminate him and just exiled him.

Still, she redeemed herself greatly by going into the underworld to retrieve Yato. She was so fucking badass in this episode. I'm loving her again.

I hope she finds Kugaha and beats the fuck outta him.

Eh, Yato angst is a bit... boring. Why does he keep forgetting that he has Yukine and Hiyori and they freaking care about him? Isn't hearing it once enough?

Anyways, its Hiyori's turn to shine. Hopefully it's done well. And oh, a certain white-haired bastard is dead and dat's great.

It's not that he doesn't believe that they care about him, it's that he didn't think they'd find him/come for him. He even thought Hiyori had forgotten about him (which she did). Anyway, Yato has trouble believing he's actually loved. Not only because he's always struggling to stay in people's memories. You will see why.

Can't believe Bishamon admitted all that to Yato. Some great character development and badassness with her whip and armor....and chest butting Izami and headslamming her was pretty crazy, it showed her determination. I also liked her pep talk.

At this point I really don't know what to think of Ebisu....he seems like he's not evil....perhaps he's just the fall guy. But whatever he's suggesting to get Yato out sounds like a bad idea already.

Getting to see Koufuku was really nice <3 I had forgotten that was her power. =X The black fan was sexiness. =P
