YATO VS FUJISAKI
I honestly thought Fujisaki would, I don't know... challenge Yato to a dance battle or something as the final arc
..Because Kazuma would be PARALYZED. Bishamon would arrive in the middle of disaster, Yato would be excited because he needs to SERIOUSLY SAVE Yukine and the more help the better, but she wouldn't even hear it because he's ALIVE, he's alive and he's here and she might start to think that it couldn't be real. He's looking at her, heart on his throat as Yato keeps talking and planning; she's ALIVE, she woke up and she's alive and she came here. Suddenly Yato calls her to action and everything goes so fast and she calls his name and he finally comes... ...letting her find out that it isn't only hers anymore. She feels his shame, his burden. He betrayed her, and Bishamon wants to scream, but her words are other... "I missed you"
"to save you, I must betray you"
“Uh, Yaboku... What are you doing coming towards your father with a face like that?!”
Haha I’ve never actually seen Aragoto and like… Suzuha?! The fact that right before he was killed he was utterly emotionally destroyed?? I’m going to go commit crimes??
Man, I really really want to see this scene animated.
I sure hope he meant that Yaboku, the God he was used to be, is who dies with his dad and not Yato, who he is now. After all, only few characters know about how Yato used to be and his dad was the only one who wanted him to go back to the way he was.
“Today you are getting struck down by heaven. I know how humiliating that must be for you, Dad. So I’ll be relieving you of your head, and Yaboku dies with you. You’re all right with that, right, Dad?”
My overthinking vile self gave me a scare, and then some more..
It all started with the "thump" you see in this panel. I was on a reread and noticed this thump sound effect. Now, fires don't burn with a thump do they?
Without even waiting to check what happened in the previous page, my overthinking, anxious self assumed that something bad happened to Hiyori.
I freaked out, simple. And then I began making a list of everything bad that could have happened to Hiyori in this scenario.
After everything was done and my anxiety levels had peaked, I thought, " hey..why don't I read the chapter again".
It should have been the other way around.
This time, I realised the simple and well depicted fact that Nora was burning some fire-crackers (of sort). I had blindly and comfortably assumed that Nora was tending the fire. So wrong I was!!
The "thump" was the sound of Nora putting the extinguished fire-cracker into that bucket. And the place, on re-examination, looks very shady, with beer bottles in the background?
They probably are nowhere near Yuka's house anymore.
Glad that my fear was misplaced, I moved on from the "thump". But then I stumbled across this panel, which shows the firecrackers, but then again, my overthinking mind puts forth the notion that they look like some weird knives.
Ofcourse they don't.....what would Mizuchi be doing with knives? She won't torture Hiyori, would she? w-would she?
It's not my fault, Nora was talking about tormenting people...
There..you see what is happening right? Plis convince me that Hiyori is safe.
We’re all gonna look like 🤡🤡🤡 at the end of the series if it turns out that Adachitoka just really likes drawing the moon.
Noragami is such a... Symbolic story. Take Yato's being, for example: He's letal, but he never really shows it unless Fujisaki or something similar (under Mizuchi's approval) requests it, and I'm not talking about his works for money with Ayakashi; Add to that his childish behaviour (we might find more info on Japanese culture, and excuse my impertinence if it depends of that, I don't really know too much about it), he acts like a teenager but then again he's the only one of his kind that has a FATHER and a sister, not even Ebisu Junior has something like that! He's dependent of Fujisaki, because he's not allowed to "leave the nest", and he's treated like a Shinki just as Fujisaki sees it (I clarify that, because if we see Bishamon's case, she doesn't even uses many of the Shinki that live with her, as long as she can protect them just as they protect her; she's been trying to break the barrier for decades). Yato doesn't even cares that well for his own Shinki (that talking before Hiyori entered the scene, that was a turning point), he learnt by how others treated him. Some tables turned, and Yato suddenly realised that he reached 18 years old a good while ago. Time to leave the nest.
Hiyori comes to the scene like
can we just appreciate how yato went from this:
when it comes to father? because with everything that’s happened, it’s easy to forget how scared he was of him in the beginning
ok not to sound evil, but this?
this FEAR on his face?
I'm living for it. He KNOWS Yato is going to kill him. It's what Yato was raised for. It's what he's best at.
And he's not going to stop until Father is cut down.
Bishamon: Kazuma has one of those... How do you call it? Cellophane?
Bishamon: Exactly, a phone something, we'll call him...
Kuraha: ...you already tried that, my lady...
Bishamon: ...who has one of those to lend me?
Kinuha: I do, miss Bishamon.
Bishamon: Perfect, let's do it.
Bishamon: This is great, let's call Kofuku.
"Hi! Kofuku here! I'm very busy right now, but leave a message and I'll call you back ok? Byeee!"
Bishamon: Ugh! Are you serious?! Since when!
Kuraha: My lady, why don't you call Yato? He's very acquainted with Kazuma.
Bishamon: I can't believe I'll do this.
"Yo Yato here! Now I'm defeating my father, yes SAVING THE WORLD, and if this is the Skunk? Guess what ~ I MADE KAZUMA A NORA AND WE'RE SUCH A COOL TEAM. Have fun!"
Bishamon: WE NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE-!!!!
