Noragami Aragoto episode 05

This is why Noragami’s great; they don’t care about killing off a few characters. It’s just pure chaos and drama. I still think the pace is a little slow though. Just kill that doctor already and get rid of that evil blight once and for all.

[Ohys-Raws] Noragami Aragoto - 05 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.59_[2015.11.01_00.54.27]So that evil regalia managed to kill most of Bishamon’s regalia because he thought that they were inferior, weak nuisances that don’t deserve to be beside the god of war. That is why he wants to kill all of Bishamon’s regalia and then get her killed so that he can start fresh as her main man and control things from behind the scenes. It would be like him becoming a god instead if he were to obtain control of a younger version of Bishamon. The worst part is that it doesn’t even sound like a bad plan. In fact, it sounds rather ingenious.

[Ohys-Raws] Noragami Aragoto - 05 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_20.51_[2015.11.01_00.55.17]I’m kind of rooting for Yato here. I would not mind at all if he really did end up killing Bishamon, but only if he kills that doctor first. Bishamon has been so petty and naïve. She put the blame on Yato instead of admitting to herself that her need to create a big regalia family is what ended up being her downfall. I doubt that she will continue to deny it any longer now that it’s happened a second time.

The question that people have been asking themselves is whether or not Kazuma will really die. I don’t know. Something tells me he won’t. Look at Yukine; he did not die. In fact, he just came back stronger. I’m sure that something similar will happen to Kazuma since he, too, is a “blessed regalia”. I just hope I’m right since I kind of like that character…

Noragami Aragoto episode 04

What a terrific episode! They explained so much during this week’s episode that a lot of my questions were answered. I am so glad that Noragami is back again. This season is rather disappointing if I look at some of the other titles (mainly anime shorts).

[Ohys-Raws] Noragami Aragoto - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_00.44_[2015.10.24_00.38.37]I kind of hate how Yato is being manipulated. I mean, we all knew that he had a rough past, seeing as he wielded that evil Regalia back in the day, but now it’s all starting to make sense. Why would a supposedly pure-evil god suddenly turn over a new leaf? It wouldn’t make any sense. Someone must’ve knocked some sense into him, but there’s no real proof of that. He simply made some bad choices and some good, one of which was to help one of Bishamon’s oldest Regalia to kill all of Bishamon’s Regalia, whom ended up becoming phantoms, in order to save her life.

[Ohys-Raws] Noragami Aragoto - 04 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_22.23_[2015.10.24_00.39.28]It is finally clear. We know now what happened to Bishamon’s Regalia and why Yato did what he did. He never denied that he killed all those Regalia, but he never defended himself either. He just carried it with him all this time. It’s like he was hell-bent on playing the bad guy even though he could’ve just told Bishamon (and other gods and Regalia) what really happened.

Nevertheless, Yato has slowly fallen into yet another trap set by his old Regalia and Bischamon’s corrupt Regalia and I hate how he’s still oblivious. It seems to have gotten to the point where his partner, Yukine, seems to have gotten injured or possibly even killed, although the latter is highly unlikely. One thing, at least, is certainly; they left us with one hell of a cliff-hanger and I am dying to see what happens next.

Noragami Aragoto episode 03

Honestly, I need to fill my schedule with anime. I want to write about seven posts a week (one every day) at the least and now I’m kind of stuck with one or two shows. I have no idea which shows to pick, other than the obvious ones like Seraph of the End, Gundam and this one of course.

[Ohys-Raws] Noragami Aragoto - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_03.13_[2015.10.16_23.56.56]I must admit that I hate how obviously annoying this are right now. We know the bad guys and we know what they are planning. Why hasn’t Yato or some of the other regalia noticed yet? They are being played by Nora and that evil regalia even though it’s so obvious. You can tell they did a good job with a villain if you actually start hating him.

I’m sorry that Yato will go back to save the one human that actually remembers him. I’m sure he’s also doing it for her, but he also thinks of himself in this case. He knows he’ll disappear if there’s no one left to remember. All that’s left is to confront the one god that hates him the most. He should have a chance now that she’s pretty vulnerable. We’ll see…

Noragami Aragoto episode 02

I have to write three posts a day now because the new season has just started. I have to write many reviews and that takes up more time than usual. That’s why I’m forced to keep this post short even though I really wanted to write a decent post.

[Ohys-Raws] Noragami Aragoto - 02 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.23_[2015.10.10_23.49.20]I will write about Noragami. I love it. But there’s one thing that annoys me about this season. We already know our bad guy. It’s that evil regalia that used to serve Yato during a time where he was known as a killer. I mean, I’m sure she’s just using that other regalia just like she used that other god in season one. She uses that regalia now only as a stepping stone to something greater.

Yato has to acknowledge that she’s a threat. She will continue to make his life unnecessarily complicated until such time as he either accepts her back or until he decides to kill/seal her. He has to realize that his old regalia has to be behind it all before others end up getting killed. I’m just curious to see how he will deal with it all.

Noragami Aragoto

Yattaaaaaaaaaa~! Oh joy! Noragami has finally returned once again and not a moment too soon. I loved the first season a lot and knew immediately that it wouldn’t be the last we’d seen of Noragami. Thank god I was right!

Noragami AragotoThe artwork is still as sublime as ever. They’ve really outdone themselves. One could say a lot of things about Noragami, some of it bad, but you could hardly attack the artwork, especially not if you compare it to other anime.

I loved the first season because of its interesting story. There was rarely a dull moment. They seem to pick up right where we left off and we already have a general idea of what we can expect to see this season. I have high hopes.

I absolutely recommend Noragami. Watch the first season if you haven’t already before you start watching this one. I will undoubtedly be writing about this season.

Plot Summary: In the second season of Noragami the main focus is on Bishamon, god of combat. She has many shinki due to her being unable to abandon spirits attacked by Ayakashi. She has a large group of shinki with her as leader, causing her trouble as she sometimes cannot tend to all of them properly, especially when one of them gets sick or is in pain. She has a strong hate for Yato, as a dark past binds the two of them. How will the horrifying events dated hundreds of years ago in combination with current evil happenings affect Yato and Yukine?
