Man, this series is starting to get real dark.

I am afraid to continue watching it >_<

I have this strangest feeling that Yukine might end up like that too...

Watched episode 1 and 2:

First episode is complete awesome. Nice to see everyone again. The trio of Yato, Hiyori, and Yukine are back to kick some ass.

Hmm, and Bishamon has like so many spirits living in her mansion / palace. O_O


Episode 2:

The violence level seems to have gone up a bit.. and why do guys who look like Rabo (from season 1) are the villains of choice?

Things are getting interesting.

To be frank Noragami never was truly a "light hearted comedy". The implications of the whole Shinki system have always been pretty dark. Not to talk about all the episodes focused on bullying, suicide and Yukine being depressed (to be honest, with a fair amount of reason). The comedy, when at all present, was there to lighten up an otherwise rather dark subject.

Episode 3

Well that was one hell of an episode. Poor Kazuma for getting exiled because of what Bishamon discovered. A poor decision imo considering hos useful and skilled he is. I think she is taking her hate for Yato a bit far. Speaking of hate, I think Yukine hated what happened to Suzuha especially since he believes that Bishamon didn't do much to save him.

That ending worries me a bit though with what happened to Hiyori.
Aiha causing trouble and Nora still around where I feel like trouble comes with her.

Episode 3
So it turns out that killing Bishamon's regalias was the only option left to save her. Kazuma knows this but Bishamon isn't willing to accept it. We will hopefully get more on this in the next episode.

Yukine had a point, if you can't take care of all these regalias, then why even have them? You should take care of every regalia since they're your property now. You can't just leave them just like that. Having a billion regalias is causing Bishamon problems again and things can end up with her regalias going bad all at once and then someone would have to kill them then.

Kugaha wants Yato and Bishamon to fight for whatever reason. He first put Kazuma out to weaken Bishamon since he synchronizes all the other battle regalias. Hiyori will act as bait to lure Yato towards Bishamon. And since Bishamon thinks of Yato as her enemy, a fight is inevitable.

Yukine is going through a lot. First his friend dies, then Kazuma gets exiled thanks to him, now Hiyori gets kidnapped. He hasn't come out of those problems yet and now Yato will need his help to save Hiyori.

Aiha turns out to be the blighted one after all. Kugaha is using her for his own goals. Since she's so consumed with jealousy, she can't see that Kugaha is doing something wrong.

But why wasn't Kugaha restrained like Aiha? Is he a nora or something? Or does he have something on him which makes him immune to such restraints?

Things are getting interesting here. Koufuku might also pitch in to save Hiyori since they've got an attachment. Kugaha will probably tell Bishamon that Hiyori is a stray spirit so take her in but Hiyori will resist. Or he might tell her that Hiyori is with Yato which might make her angry. But god damn that cliffhanger!

That was a tense episode. Yukine called out Bishamon on all the problems her family of Regalia have and Kazuma got exiled. Poor Hiyori also got captured by that doctor. By getting rid of Kazuma, Kuguha basically got rid of the voice of reason for Bishamon' family. Now a fight between Yato and Bishamon really is going to happen.

Yato & Hiyori... would make a nice pair.
Feel sorry for Bishamon.
She's pretty nice & that doctor is a traitorous bastard.
Disruption has set in Veena's home.
Kazuha did the right thing.
Veena needs to clean house and fast!!
Poor Yukine just doesn't have any luck with friends..

there's some true in yukine words, bishamon may not see it. It's good that they add some comedy to light the mood but now is going to get more serious with the flashback of what happend between yato and bishamon.

What a start to the season! This arc has been excellent so far.

Didn't expect Kazuma getting exiled. I'm sure why Kuga is trying to fan the flames of war between Bishamon and Yato either. What's in it for him? Guess we'll find out soon enough...

Yuki Kaji killed it this ep with the Yukine calling Bishamon out scene, one hell of a performance.

Kugaha already stated why in the previous episode: to kill Bishamon.

I really want to know why Yato was such an evil god in the past or actually why did he became such a nice person at present day. Nora is always trying to get him back to his darker side so i understand why would she help that Kuga guy. I do not understand why Kuga wants to kill Bishamon tho. Is it revenge for something she did? Or he wants her position? Can Shinkis somehow become gods? Next episodes should answer my questions xD

One of the things i really like in this anime is that although it's mainly a comedy it can also become quite dark and graphic which makes it somehow unpredictable at certain points. Together with such nice characters and animation, it's one of my favorites in this season!

The preview shows them fighting next episode so I'm guessing yes, it will.

Damn Yukine he told off a God like he was just talking to a friend he needed to vent to/put in their place. Bishamon really needed a way to just step back and observe while he was saying that. She let her hatred take over if she could have just step back and listen she would know his words are the raw truth. Further proof would be shown to her if she looked around during seeing her own regalias reaction. Though Bishamon should have the right to kill Kugaha I hope Yukine gets the honor via Yato. I do wonder Bishamon's reaction when she finds out all the stuff Kugaha has done. I feel bad for Kazuma he is a smart man he will find a way to help Yato fix it all.

I assume he has a second name (or more), so he can move through those. As for why he is doing all of this, maybe he wants to put Bishamon to the test, see if she is still worthy of her place as a resplendent god of destruction, when she has settled for a small elite team of regalias. Saving everyone she finds may be kind, but it's a blatant weakness - bad relationships between them would make Bishamon collapse from the feedback...so she either cuts them loose or dies.

Yato is probably the only god with a single regalia, so he's a good example of what Kuga is trying to do...? No clue as to how Nora is involved in all of this besides sparking Kuga's interest in the case.

I'm really liking the second season so far, Yato is a complete badass even without a weapon, he still has his shitty way of talking to Yukine, but at least he warned him that Suzuha's spot was dangerous instead of his usual "just listen to what I say" demeanor. Hiyori is slowly turning into a sad, sad case of a separated soul, bound to get in aaaaaall kinds of danger...

The strangest characters in the series remain the Binbougami and her regalia, they basically offer protection to whoever they damn please but don't actively meddle in their affairs. While I doubt they have ulterior motives, they're just so...iunno, weird :O
