Not at all! As you can see my reply is coming in pretty late as well--I had my art final that took up a lot of my time, and general other stuff occupying the rest.

I think it's better that Yato's father is being presented more morally ambiguous than we initially thought, because if he was completely evil he'd come off as a bit of a cartoon villain. Of course it in no way justifies the centuries of abuse and, as you said, the things he's said and done during the course of the series; but I think it gives him more layers to explain his motive and reasoning behind hating the heavens. It's also been brought up that the heavens are more corrupt than we think, even though I'd still side with them before trash dad a million times over.
I'm still really curious as to the extent of the god's greatest secret, since as you said there's the question of how it will affect Yukine, and if he could survive knowing it (I'm saying yes, since they wouldn't kill him off as a main character, and in 65 trash dad implied that Mizuchi has survived Liberation). It also seemed as though Nana was able to recover from it somewhat after she was happy that she died fighting--she accepted her death, in other words.
Not to mention, as long as trash dad has Mizuchi he'll be able to kill off as many shinki as he wants, unless they discover a mass cure which seems doubtful because it's too easy. All in all, there's still a lot of mystery (Does releasing the shinki actually fix the problem? Can you not rename a shinki once they've been released? Is Yukine self-destructing regardless, though at a slower rate? How does a shinki survive the god's greatest secret?) so I'm really excited for how they'll resolve this arc, since it's so long that that means they have one heck of a finale cooked up for us. I bet we'll learn at least something about Yukine's past before it ends, too.
I love Yukine, and his maturity through the series is what's driving it. Even though Yato and Kazuma are my top favs.
One of my friends got me for my birthday the hospital arc volume in print, so now I can cry about it every day of my life. I'm also debating buying the next volume as well, since I hate that one a lot too. And with the hospital arc, it's funny because I was trying to think of something to draw for Yatori week on Tumblr, so I thought that arc might have something for the prompt ("Thank you") in it. So I started to flip through it, not even reading it properly, and halfway through one chapter I started tearing up. It's bad.

See, sometimes I THINK I'm getting numb to the cliffhangers, and then I remember what happened in the latest chapter and what might happen in the next and the wait becomes excruciating again. I'm so salty that chapter 66 didn't really address the events of the previous one, meaning I have another month to suffer before some answers. And now there's double the fear, since whenever something like a GIANT EXPLOSION happens I can't help but worry for everyone. And after 66, everyone's like "AAAAAA TAKEMIKAZUCHI" but I still can't make myself like him since he's trying to kill Yato. Yeah, Bishamon was doing that too and now they've vastly improved their relationship, but unlike Bishamon, Take's never crossed paths (or swords) with Yato before and is just after him to test Kiun's strength. Even if his backstory WAS pretty tragic, I need him to switch sides and stop trying to kill my favorite character before I can feel some sympathy for him. I'm bad at liking villains, except as characters (like trash dad).
I can't really imagine that few chapters. I know my friends got into it when there were about 15 out, and I asked them how it was to bear the wait, and they said it was horrible. I also asked how it was compared to this arc, and my friend said it was difficult to say as they're vastly different experiences. I can get behind that, and I'm also a bit glad I wasn't around for that horrible wait, but I also hate myself for not reading the manga sooner.

Pssssh no worries, I'm pretty sure my reply is longer than yours. Plus, having a conversation with someone that rambles as much as you is a lot of fun! More stuff to talk about.
Leopah Apr 20, 4:41 PM
Nah, it's cool.

Huh, that's pretty interesting. If anything, I feel like Noragami has been staying just as good or even getting better. It's hard for me to make up my mind on which arc is my favorite because they're all so good, but what I like about this one is the amount of mystery there is, particularly around the god's greatest secret/liberation and Father. Plus there's stuff like the hospital arc.....ow.
I'm still stuck in the "Now I have to wait for the next chapter" thing, partly because we're getting bigger and bigger cliffhangers each month and partly because I've only been caught up for about a year now. I cannot imagine the suffering wait endured through the Underworld arc like my friends had to go through, and now I'm going through a similar thing with the current arc.

That's enough of my rambling. I hope you have a great day too!!
Leopah Apr 10, 12:18 PM
Hello! I stumbled across your profile and I saw your tags on the Noragami manga in that it suffers from genre inconsistencies. I have to ask, what do you mean by that? I personally like the different storytelling style of each arc (if that's what you're referring to) since it keeps each arc from feeling like carbon copies of one another.
I also would love to pick your brain concerning the current manga arc--things are getting extremely interesting and I'm curious as to what you think.

Have a great day~

Oh hey- I am glad to see you rate one that I was on the fence about picking up; thank you for helping me decide whether to see "Haikyuu!" Since it only earned a '7' from you, I think I may pass on it. I may try Higashi no Eden before long.
How are you?
By the way, I ended up gifting my cousin a copy of Samurai Champloo. He's 23, and he doesn't watch much anime, but I figured he'd like that particular one. It turns out I was correct! He says he has a newfound faith in anime, because of it. And now he's seen Fullmetal Alchemist, and is considering Hunter x Hunter next, I think. As you may recall, I picked up S.C. on your advice, so thanks, I've really enjoyed introducing someone successfully to anime!

It seems like everyone in my family has more artistic talent than me. My dad paints for a hobby, my sister can do these cool space graffiti things, and my mom makes decorative gifts to sell on her online store. Yeah it was kinda like being in an entirely different world where deep fried beanie babies and giant abstract phalluses are the norm for art. I saw things I can't unsee x'D plus there were hipsters...EVERYWHERE.

Ice cream is one of those things I could eat nonstop but I would get tubby. I'm so sorry, maybe a 3DS will fall from the sky as an apology for the spoilers!

Eh I dunno about emotionally manipulative. It's kind of difficult to explain but it's almost like they're being manipulative "accidentally" even though they're completely conscious of what's going on.
CovetCloud Aug 2, 2015 2:12 PM
My affinity for art is pretty low. For every divine piece of art that has graced this world there has been an equally grotesque macaroni portrait made by past Tyler. It was kind of abstract/unique art that didn't really fit into a category. Wasn't my cup of tea but it was fun to meet my uncle's friends!

I'm just glad I don't have a dairy allergy. I love milk and ice cream way too much to give them up. But the Zelda concert sounds cool. I hope you have a blast!

My parents are usually pretty calm and avoid most of the drama. We have a few troublemakers tho that can pretty much manipulate everyone else into joining the argument lol. Welllll I wouldn't say peacekeepers. We usually just avoid it all and go do other things amongst the chaos xD
CovetCloud Jul 29, 2015 2:57 PM
I went to some art show/party with my uncle and one of his somewhat hammered friends accidentally hit someones wine glass conveniently onto my shirt haha. These things always happen to me D'x

My allergies usually aren't too bad. If I'm around cats all day then Jesus might as well clear his schedule and bless me cuz I'll need some otherworldly power to stop me from sneezing.I like cats but I'm a dog person by heart. I just love how loyal and social dogs are. Cats are pretty cool though.

Whoa, that sounds awesome! I have a feeling you and my sister would be best friends. She loves anything pokemon related. Oooh a Zelda symphony would be the coolest thing ever!! I would go see that one for sure. Nah I'm all the way in the midwest in good ol' Illinois.

My family always has drama going on somewhere. It's not necessarily bad drama but it's always the annoying kind where me and my cousins occasionally get drafted into the argument. I can pretty much generalize my family into my mom's side and dad's side. My dad's side of the family are very conservative. Like super duper conservative. My mom's side aren't completely polar opposites but they are pretty liberal so neither side really likes each other and they can be pretty two-faced too. And then there's me and my uncle who are right in the middle, at least politically/morally. There's so many weird things about my family, usually a good kind of weird xD Maybe I'm the weird one in the family lol
CovetCloud Jul 21, 2015 5:48 PM
I'm usually really good at saving my money until one of three things happens: I need something expensive, I need to replace something expensive, or somebody spills expensive wine on my expensive clothes (actually happened). That probably just made me sound rich and arrogant but I'm actually just lower middle-class and allergic to cats.

How does a video game symphony work? That sounds like something I need in my life haha. I think my sister went to a pokemon symphony in Chicago a few weeks ago that sounded cool.

It's like the adults and kids roles were reversed sort of but not really. You could totally make an uncopyrighted script for a world where kids are forced to do adult stuff so the adults can play...
But I feel where you're coming from. My family always seems abnormal to me and my friends think they're normal. I still think they're weirdos lol
CovetCloud Jul 18, 2015 6:26 PM
We may travel a little around the country too if we can afford it haha. I think it'll be an unforgettable experience.
I've had a lot of weird Asian candies but they're always super ridiculous and good xD

Haha maybe I"ll watch that one. It sounds pretty interesting!

I think everyone has stages of drunkness where they can be bad. I've definitely had my moments. I tend to get really talkative and sassy and then I crash HARDDD.

Maybe if there was some random "vacation" where I could be a NEET for a week I'd do it cuz YOLO amiriiite? But socializing and a steady income are pretty cool too...

How was it weird? haha
CovetCloud Jul 10, 2015 4:42 PM
Thanks! I've heard Korea is really fun and the people are friendly. I think we're going to Seoul. I just want to try all the crazy Asian candy hahah. They have the best stuff over there.

I think Kaibutsu-kun might be a little too competitive if he's pushing people off of bridges. Sounds like he needs therapy 0_o

Yeah the only thing cool about growing up is being able to legally drink and 401ks. I'm looking forward to getting a job and settling down but at the same time I could just say fuck it and become a NEET xD jk.

Sounds like you had an eventful 4th! My parents were out of town so I hung out with a friend's family for 4th of July. His family was super funny because they were all kinda drunk lol. It was...entertaining haha


CovetCloud Jul 5, 2015 6:18 PM
I moved to the states when I was about 13 months old so I don't remember Korea too much. Me and my sis might go next summer though. I'm excited!! (x

I haven't seen anything on the list of shows he's directed haha. He seems to have a lot of fans though.

I've had less free time lately. The perks of getting older :/
Did you celebrate for 4th of july?
CovetCloud Jun 30, 2015 10:53 AM
Nice! I'm from South Korea.
Do you have a favorite director?

Sorry for the late reply. I've been super busy Dx
CovetCloud Jun 23, 2015 3:51 PM
What country is your family from? A few of my favorite series I almost dropped early on but I'm definitely glad I committed to them.

I might have to watch it again because it was so good. I've seen most of his well known works (Spirited away, mononoke, totoro, howls, nausicaa, castle in the sky) but I saw most of those when I was little. I haven't seen Wind Rises or Ponyo though. I really like the feel of his movies because rather than having the good destroy the evil or depicting the world as a one side takes all kind of world, they both seem to become unified in the end (not as much in his lighter movies like totoro). But a lot of his notoriety comes from the fact he's been making movies for so long.
CovetCloud Jun 21, 2015 5:28 PM
I know very little about Japanese culture but I have come to highly respect their emphasis on respect for each other as well as something my Japanese friend's family described to me as "wa", which means peace/harmony through selflessness. It's something I feel other parts of the world are lacking in. I probably shouldn't digress into that kind of discussion though xD

I'm somewhat the same way. If I start a series (or most things in general) that I don't like at first, I try to give it a few more tries before I make a decision. Standards are definitely important though (NO INFINITE STRATOS) lol.

I definitely teared up a little at the end. That was one of the best anime movies I've seen in awhile. I've definitely been on the Miyazaki bandwagon for quite some time but that was definitely on par with his movies.
CovetCloud Jun 20, 2015 9:27 AM
You make a good point there. One of my best friends literally watches anything and everything anime. Although it might be acceptable in his case because he has a legitimate appreciation for Japanese culture, specifically anime and manga so for him it's a passion rather than a forceful act. At least, that's how I look at it.

Btw I saw Hotarubi no Mori e and it was really good! I did not expect it to end so suddenly and sadly though. It definitely caught me off guard.
