Noragami Aragoto episode 12
I still stand by what I’ve said before. The first season was better and more interesting than this one. But hey, this episode was actually better than the last few. It was actually quite good and I can only hope that the next one will be even better.
I’ll admit that I’m quite interested in the ending. It does look very promising after seeing this episode and I think that an epic battle awaits us. I also loved the fact that Yato, which turned out to be a name that he gave himself instead of it being his actual name, left his evil old Regalia in the underworld when he was called back up. The look on that Regalia’s face was absolutely price and I re-watched that scene about three times before I could finally continue with the rest of the episode. One can only hope that she’ll stay there for all eternity, but we all know that she’ll return like a bad case of herpes.
I’m also pretty glad that Ebisu, one of the gods of fortune, found his way. I find the whole concept of known gods being able to reincarnate quite interesting since they tend to be pretty mellow when it comes to dying. They know that they’re just going to be reborn again. For gods like Yato that’s entirely different. That is why I’m quite interested in knowing what the heavens have in store for him.
Will the heavens get him? I don’t know. That’s very good. I would’ve hated it if it was actually so obvious that I already knew what to expect. I’m guessing he’ll survive somehow thanks to Yato and maybe that other god of fortune showing up at the last second. Finally… An episode that really makes me want to watch the next one as soon as possible.
