why are you doing this to my fav manga after making FMAB.

*sigh*.

The animation seemed particularly poor quality this episode. Normally it's pretty good, but there were lots of frozen frames and poor character representation too. Daikoku looked terrible in several shots and Aiha had a really messed up chin at one point.

They seem to be wrapping up the story close enough to the manga ending that it shouldn't mess up any future seasons at least.

I actually feel really sad for Izanami. :(

Hiyori calling Yato's real name is one of my favourite moments.

So, since Hiyori couldn't find any info on Yato when she was researching the gods previously, i wonder what she'll find if she looks now under Yato's real name. He seems to be hinting that he's done some pretty bad shit in the past, i hope they elaborate on that.

And Bishamon is so deadly and sexy, i wish i was her regalia. Not even an important one, just one that transformed into a broom or something that she could sweep out her room with. Or even better, a bath towel.

I haven't been blue-balled on a 2nd last episode like this for quiet some time, last time was Eureka Seven and Code Geass actually but I watched the final episode straight after unlike this where I'm in suspense for a whole 7 days. Gotta say this has been the only episode this whole season where I felt emotions, 11 episodes to late for me but hey least the ending will probably kick S1 ass

The heaven punisher thing really reminded of Heaven soldiers, Sky soldiers or w.e from like old fantasy shows, the cloud-like entity there were on along with the war drums.

How the ancient art was broken like that felt quite underwhelming though it was cool enough by the end.

Everyone in the cast has been quite awesome these past few episodes in a more "epicy" way.

People who read the manga need to chill a bit. Anime and manga are different things for example with manga you can read it in different pace it really depends on how fast you read it while in anime the pacing depends on the director and the writers of the episode you can't speed up the pacing like you can do in manga. And if you hate changes in the anime then just don't watch it and go read the manga if you like it more.

Decent episode I suppose. Hiyori magically knew Yato's name because the plot demanded it. Haven't read the manga so not sure how much it diverged from it. Welp, last episode next week. Let's see how it goes.

Actually she didn't magically know the name, although it wasn't yet explained how she knew it (read spoiler if you wanna know)



Edit: I see a number of people already explained that on the first page.

Not this, that's for sure.

So you are talking about art? Well art is great too, anyway still frames are bad for rating art and animation.
Ps, there is nothing wrong with this screen, of course it is not a masterpiece, but this scene took around 3 second, so, ekhm...
Noragami is one of the best looking series from this season or even year.
Only one series looks better in this season, Owari no Seraph (this is masterpiece If it comes to art and animation in general)


Art is just a facet of animation itself; you can't have good animation with bad art, it doesn't work that way. If multiple frames in a sequence are drawn poorly, the animation will look awful no matter how "fluid" it is. There were so many instances of off-model characters with terrible proportions, the frame I posted here is just an example of one. If you can't tell what's wrong with the frame I posted you must not have a very firm grasp on proportions...

Owari no Seraph does have good animation though.

Great episode, as per usual from Noragami. Damn Hiyori's smart for figuring out Yato's real name like that. Did Hiiro really get left behind though? I read the manga, but I totally forgot. xD I hope not though, she seems to really care for Yato so it'll be kind of sad if she was just left there. But since she's an important character, I doubt it.

I doubt she got left behind since Izanami said she's all alone again.

I loved the last episode, and you can clearly see the character developments of Bishamon and Yato. Still I thought we'll see more fight scenes of Yato+Yukine against the other Gods. That one scene where they save Ebisu was "too cliche", and even though Yukine is a blessed vessel he was overpowered. Can't wait to see the 13 episode and write my review.

Omg these few episodes was literally gold. The fights, the feels, and the ost. Hiyori knew yato's real name, that was surprising. Bishamon was incredible too. I want to know what's going to happen with Ebisu. 5/5

As wonderful as the previous episode. They managed to get him out from the underworld. Glad to see Kofuku in action. I wonder how much strong she is?!! I like her nonetheless.
And looks like Ebisu is a goner. Would like it if Yato summoned back Hiiro.

What an amazing episode! Everyone was trying so hard to save Yato from the Underworld but they eventually fold out that they actually don't know about Yato's real name. However, Hiyori was able to realise it was 'Yaboku' after remembering her writing down the characters for 'Yato'' on the little shrine that he made for her. That was such a emotional yet heart-warming moment. It also seems like Yato left Nora behind too, oh boy.

The executioners appeared and were prepared to public execute Ebisu and everyone else in the vicinity. Bishamon using Kazuma's true power as a blessed vessel was very awesome. Yukine was frustrated about Yato and told him how he truly felt which was nice to see. The whole scene with the pacification ring being activated was so intense. Yato was so badass when he stopped it with 'sekki'. However, there was still a person that activated another pacification ring below Ebisu. Then, the episode ends... Noragami cliffhangers are so bad oh my gawd. xD Can't wait for the final episode next week though.
5/5

Yato's past must be really dark. Izanami has done nothing wrong she just wants some company. Yet they made her the bad guy here.

Hmm guess im one of the few who thought it was mehh.. I mean how does she suddenly know his name for no reason? Why are the gods so easily beaten, well ok not entirely but their firet attack was pretty much nullified while they have a huge team..

And where did nora suddenly go? I mean he didnt leave her there as far as I know nor did he negate the contract or however you call it nor turned her back to her usual human form..
Or did I miss something, apparantly I did since so many ppl mention her being left behind..

And I felt a bit sorry for the underworld god somehow

*sighs* I know this actually pretty confusing, but it's already been explained various times on this thread...

Anyway, (this is taken from a TN in the manga) the kanji for boku (卜) looks practically identical to the katakana to (ト). Hiyori figured out that the character ト in his name could be read alternatively, and with nothing left to lose, she tried it.

I mean, we can say whatever we want. And I personally don't mind all of the changes. Just some were utterly unnecessary, and took away from things that could have been focused on more. I'm just a bit unsatisfied.



Added Yato x Hiyori is always welcome.

So Yato's real name is Yaboku, I wonder if we'll get an explanation soon as to how Hiyori figured that out (or maybe it'll come way later, idk).


It was literally 'show not tell'. She saw that Yato was super happy with the shrine she made for him and didn't say anything about how she wrote his name on the shrine. Meaning, even though Yato isn't his real name, she wrote it correctly. Since Japanese is a dumb and confusing language, words can be read different ways. So, in essence, what you can get from that is that Hiyori wrote 'Yato' on the shrine, but it can also be read as 'Yaboku'




Japanese language is dumb? Excuse me? Just because you don't know how Japanese language works you called it dumb? Talk about being an uncultured swine. So everything that you don't understand is dumb to you? Clearly you are the dumb one here. It's confusing because you don't study Nihongo, ass cake.

All action and little emotion, good action though.

Swear, I though this was the last episode.
I believe that unless you know for sure that you don't like a concept, you should keep exploring it. Whether it be characteristics of people or a genre of some sort, you never know if you don't like it until you've seen quality work corresponding to that genre. Keep exploring until you've found something you enjoy, or something of quality. Then you know what's bad, what's good, and what isn't for you.

I feel like people often forget that Yukine is 14 years old and he's been given a huge responsibility. In fact, the authors intended for him to be 12 initially, and you can see that in how he's still immature. And you also have to remember that he has devoted himself to protecting Yato by training hard with Kazuma and, in return, Yato has lied to him, hidden things from him and "cheated" on him by going with Hiiro... It's only natural that he's upset, especially after hearing from Kugaha how Noras can be stronger than Blessed Vessels.

Not to mention that the anime totally made up that scene, as in the manga Yukine confronts Yato AFTER the arc, once everything is over and it's safe to talk.

Yukine is, next to Bishamon, the character that has evolved the most this season. And wait till you see him in Season 3, if it ever comes out.

(Is there a need to put this in spoiler tags, actually?)


However, one change I didn't like is that Ebisu was the one that figured out Yato's real name isn't 'Yato', since in the manga it was Hiyori who realised it after doing her god-related research and finding out that gods have multiple names. Thanks to that many anime viewers forget that Hiyori actually has more brains than most of the characters, which is why we are getting a lot of "How the hell did Hiyori figure it out just like that?" from anime-only viewers. Though honestly Hiyori's naivety also partly ruins her smarts.

Something felt kinda off compared to the previous episodes. This scenario has probably just gotten dragged on for too long. That and it seems really iffy that these superior looking gods are all villainized so that they could get their asses kicked by the main cast...

ahh an intense episode. bishamon was amazing as usual.

when yato called for sekki i thought he was going to kill ebisu to spare everyone else. ////
then i thought ebisu might actually live with the changes they made but he still died. ;n; i wish he died between bishamon's arms though (bc it was more dramatic although his face before the ring glowed was still p sad)
