Holy fucking shit! This was too much intense as hell!
That cliffhanger though, Damn it, I need a TV Sequel for that!!
Anyway, I'll rate this show an 8 (or 9) score overall!!!

I'm glad Hiyori didn't smack Yato off of her when he returned, that would've too much of an Anime cliche.

I don't know why but I felt bad for Izanami.
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

Happy Hiyori was able to call Yato back!

Ebisu GG, u did well.
GG Hiiro, u deserved it, but that was a bit sad getting abandoned. #childhoodfriendsalwayslose
Most heart warming guy-falls-on-girl scene.
Yaboku: boku for 卜, so night of divination/fixing. Wait so Yato was a fortuneteller? lol no. I'm guessing it means night assassination, or fixing bad people, like the jobs he did for Hiiro.
Thanks Bones for every cliffhanger...

I felt it was a little too hasty execution of Ebisu, but the whole narrative that seems forced, on this event you had to "lose" a little more time, it would be a good opportunity to discuss certain topics, oh well! Let's see how the series ends.

It was fun how called 'Public execution' or like the most powerful technique got destroyed by few strikes of Yato's sword..

So Nora left in the Underworld? And that lady is alone again.. :(

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...

Whip > Lighting dragon and Getsuga Tenshou Rend > God Nuke? -_-


it's more of
Blessed Vessels >>>>>> Lightning dragon.

you're talking about the strongest vessel(either him or Nana), he even fodderized royal shinki(name might be wrong, the ones guarding the 7lucky gods at the beginning of arc), and made their chief run in fear.

Alone again. Sounds like they tried relating to the weeaboos.
Just need to find out how to quote this every time so I can dodge the stupid 30-character limit.

So how exactly did Hiyori guess that his name is Yaboku, was there some text trick?

Yato = 夜ト
Yaboku = 夜卜

The "ト" (katakana, "to") and "卜" (kanji, "boku") look identical. Hiyori noticed this when thinking about the name she carved in his shrine and tried reading his name in a different way.

I guess they didn't explain it because it was obvious to Japanese viewers.

Yaboku huh ...
Poor Izanami, being all alone again :(

Shouldnt Ebisu be fine after the pacification, since they said it will "miss" if he was pure of heart. (Unless he really wasnt completely pure even with all the phantom recruiting he did)
Guess I'll find out in the next and final episode.

It was literally 'show not tell'. She saw that Yato was super happy with the shrine she made for him and 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.
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
I thought I'd be the only one to say something! You'd think for all the fans of anime and manga somebody would step up... but a lot were probably lazy or didn't see. I'm going to assume this person is otherwise sensible and logical, but calling the language dumb just because it's intricate doesn't work. Every language can be complicated and nonsensical at times. Saying that was just rude.

Anyway, this episode was awesome. Even though neither side was truly in the wrong, the resulting action was quite enjoyable. The animation did go downhill, but that can be forgiven. I don't think Yato intentionally dropped Hiiro on the way up.. either way, she's not out of the picture. I still feel bad for Izanami. Loved the reunion of our three. Can't wait to see the finale and get started on the manga!

What does Yato's real name mean? In Episode 12 Hiyori calls Yato by his real name for the first time 'Yaboku'. Yato says that if he mentioned his real name to them then they will hate him so obviously this name has some sort of meaning.

It means nothing. It was badly worded. He meant that they would hate him for what his name implied = his past and the things he did with Father and Nora/Hiiro.

Such a great, epic episode, on a level which alone makes me give this anime a bonus score. I guess I shouldn't have ever underestimated Noragami after all.

For a moment I thought Izanami will come up from the Underworld and make everyone fight a common enemy. Then again she maybe can't.

Yaboku? Dude that's one big revelation right there. I did not know Yato was not his real name. Anyway, why would knowing his real name make people avoid him? And how did Hiyori found out about "Yaboku"? is just just some play on words and letters from "Yato"? lol

After all that Ebisu's still gonna die? What.

So Yato's true name is revealed. Japanese language is really hard to understand, but that's how it works. She wrote Yato's name on the shrine. Even though Yato is not his real name, she wrote it correctly. It read as "Yaboku".

What an intense fight! The suspense is real. This anime is just amazing.

Oh well, cliffhanger at its finest.

When something special happens, they always have to show the surprised face expression of everyone being at the scene, even if one expression should be enough to show to us viewers that something outstanding has happened but that's a general trick used to provide enough screentime i guess ^^

Yaboku - actually when I first heard it, I had to laugh. I was expecting something like 'the dark flame master' but instead we got yaboku.

Solid Animation thus far. That's something I'd highlight especially when it comes to fighting scenes.

Ebisu, you better not die, nigguh. You were such a pain in the ass to protect, so do something last minute to survive so you can eat at Olive Tavern .-.

Our little Yuki is so strong now :')

I was very surprised that Hiyori figured out Yato's true name in such a critical moment o_o" Great job Hiyori! :3

Aww just look at Yato X3 looking at Hiyori and then return laying lazily in her arms. What a cute moment =^w^=

What a mistake by creators! Firstly Yato's right leg is bandaged and purple then after the thunder strikes them and Yato gets up, it is his left leg.

Was that Yato name problem connected with how japanese people don't know every kanji and forget the old meanings?
I can't find this kanji that is written on his temple. two kanji says 夜トa abut the second kanji on temple is written differently but I can't find it even on japanese wiki while searching for 夜.
I wonder if anyone knows what is the meaning of this?

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P

I wish I had magic glasses that let me see real world in anime colors ;)

So Yato's real name is Yaboku! Hiyori saved Yato once again...
Where did Hiiro go when Yato is soul called to the mortal world?
Yato and Yuki have gotten so powerful, they could rend-cut a magical spell on a sky from the ground!

I hope Ebisu could be saved somehow in the next episode.

Damn, this was an intense episode. :3 And that moment when Hiyori called out Yato’s real name was very emotional. Idk why, but I teared up lol.

The thing with Ebisu...it’s been hinted these past few episodes that it’s almost like he knows he’s going to die and I’ve cried every time, only to find out he was saved each time but omgg the look on his face in that ending scene...Ebisu, please don’t die. T.T

I also loved the action scenes in this episode! Yato and Yukine vs the Gods was pretty awesome! :D

5/5!

I love how Hiyori subtly hinted that a lot of Japanese characters have vastly different meanings depending on the context in a previous episode when she was trying to do some research on him. I didn't realize that she'd try out that trick until she actually did it though but it made so much sense. That's quick thinking for ya~ The ship's back up.

It'd be reasonable to think that Hiiro got left behind because he let go of her at the last second but Izanami commenting on how alone she is again and Kazuma successfully returning with Bishamon despite just being on the floor seconds before she warped back makes me think that Soul Calls also brings back their equips even if they were let go.

While the Punishers are only seeking to execute Ebisu, I'm a bit worried about what will happen to everyone else at the scene because of their immediate retaliation against the not-so-heavenly Heavens out of concern for their comrade. Seeing the Blessed Vessels showing their true power against such intimidating foes was great. Too bad he didn't get enough time to move out of the way after gawking at their glory like the viewers like me.

Looks like Nora will be the next playing of Izanami, surprised he just let go of her. She certainly deserves it though.
