This anime is actually really, really amazing. I know most are vastly dissapointed with Space Dandy, which is highly understandable in spite of the fact that I disagree, but Bones has truly wowed me with Noragami. I know it's too early to say it's phenomenal, but the first two episodes truly did not fail to impress me in every aspect. What gets me the most is it's God tier animation and music, most especially the ED. I understand that it might shit itself midway or towards the end, but for right now without question, this is my AOTS.
Anyone else watching Noragami?
this anime is just meh.
I'm really liking this as well, besides the art/animation and music, something just clicks, just not sure what yet.
And also Hiyori a super cute.
It's pretty good. A little bit generic-supernatural modern adventure so far.
>This anime is actually really, really amazing.
Soundtrack is pretty baller so far.
Meh. I downloaded first episode but I haven't seen it yet.
I can't explain it. But something inside me just loves this anime so much. I really have not seen something this good come out of BONES in years.
The faggot shota ruins everything. It'll drop from good to meh if they spend more than 3 episodes on his character arc. He's a piece of shit and his backstory doesn't make me sympathize with him being a fucking prick at all.
I hope she isn't relegated to the sidelines. It's entertaining to see her pull off her MMA shenanigans.
>Dat song playing during this scene
Well that's a shame. Oh well, I'll have Hiyori at least.
>[DameDesuYo] Noragami - 02 (1280x720 10bit AAC) [19E5CFDC].mkv
I don't think you have to worry about that.
Really wonderful stuff, very surprised by it.
Author is probably female I guess, so it can't be helped that our god must be paired with some faggot and not a lady.
He's just his weapon.
Really what gets me the most are the stunning visuals.
Do Hiyori and Yuto develop a relationship in the series? And does the shota ruin it?
Appears so. But I wouldn't worry too much about the shota ruining everything. Only time will tell.
These guys actually any good? They seem tolerable based on their website at least. Downloading anyway, because it isn't hard to do a better job than Funimation.
It's average at best. The manga was shit also.
not even once
Girl of the season?
Girl of the season
Wrong show m8.
So the shota does ruin it?
Can't he have like a character development arc where he isn't insufferable?
Perhaps Bones will put their own fun little twist inside in future episodes.
No to the second question.
Yeah, hopefully something like DTB s2 ending to close out the series.
Why do you say that?
It's really good. I'm enjoying it so far. The OST is great, animation is good, cast and characters are all good, storyline is different, a good different. I can't complain about much, that's a first.
hahahaha so funny
All I think of is Durarara. Partly due to Kamiya's casting.
Let's not mention SD in the OP when we have Noragami appreciation threads, okay?
>characters are all good
>storyline is different, a good different
oh wait, you haven't read the manga.
Not him but whats so bad about the manga? I actually considered picking it up after watching episode 2.
Nope, please no spoilers. Actually, I'll just be leaving.
I thought the manga was really behind the raws. So things might turn out better than you're thinking.
Manga's fine. People just like shitting on things.
It's just plain average I'd say, regular orthodox shonenshit. It doesn't stand out in any way, just plain boring.
Can't wait for the glorious Pixiv fanart.
This part of the song, holy fuck.
She looks soft in many ways
I want to put her in my lap and pet her
Just be extra gentle.
The music in this show is amazing.
ah, mai narcoleptic waifu...
What subs should I get for this?
He's like Lelouch but sloppy.
How shit are her friends?
"My friend got hit by a bus and now falls asleep as suddenly as a narcoleptic. Should we take her to the hospital? No. Fuck that."
Noragami kind of feels like that new Yozakura show as far as character designs and animation styles go
Yup. And a lot less serious.
I want to protect Hiyori's smile
I like Maaya Uchida's voice as FeMC so far. It sounds a lot like, say, Risa Taneda or even Ai Kayano.
She makes Hiyori even more perfect.
Noragami's OST comes out on 2/19.
I'm ready to listen to that song over and over again. Also the beautiful ED.
I liked this shot too
The comedy I think ties everything together and helps you learn about the characters really well. They're pretty upbeat.
Reminder that Hiyori has the best blush and loves the Yato smell.
The Iwasaki countdown begins.
I like the show its pretty decent the two main characters are likeable, Yuki Kaji character comes in and acts like a faggot straight away I don't like his character already.
The 5 yen dream by Yato.
they probably won't animate it to this part, but NotSaber will be glorious
Also best pantsu anime this season.
The soundtrack and atmosphere has completely blown me away.
The two main characters are also fantastic.
Easily AOTS for me so far.
it's just a bakemonogatari clone but it's so entertaining
You don't even know how much implications this is for fujoshis.
sounds like the setup for a MMF.
I'm kind of disappointing that that's not *really* a tail Hiyori has. I would have liked someone touching that twirly tail and she starts purring or orgasming or something.
Too bad they soften Yukine's introduction.
Just wait for the next episode, that might be the first scene in it.
Why the fuck it can't be loli instead?
Shotas are better.
>mfw my regalia is a shota
Just read through the manga.
Goddamn, the next 6 episodes or so are going to consist of the shota being an insufferable asshole, aren't they?
Bratty shotas like Yukine need to have dickings. I would volunteer for that hard work.
Annoying fuckface ungrateful shota isn't better, no.
My second favorite of the season behind Married to the Unknown
Would you like a goth loli thats 12k years old?
I would prefer his past Regalia or Hiyori.
Can't yato just cancel his contract with the shota once he found a new shinki?
I find it painfully average. There's nothing about it that is memorable.
He won't, because he's just a nice guy like that.
Zvezda = Noragami > Wizard Barristers > Sakura Trick > the rest of the season
Wizard Barristers will probably fuck up though, since it's ARMS.
Thanks for the rec, I'm greatly enjoying it.
Is the ED by supercell? Sounds reminiscent of their style.
doujins of Yato raping Yukine where?
Does her body get cleaned when she washes her soul?
I'm ready for the Iwasaki
Loved this song. Can't wait.
The fags who shit on Yukine are just people who don't read moonrunes.
After he accepts the fact that he's a dead he becomes moe
People don't like male characters who still need character development to happen just look at NnA and people who dropped it because of early Hikari.
The manga is way behind the raws, 9 volumes total, 3 have been translated so far. Yukine is a good boy now, he's surprisingly powerful and if you read the available English chapters you're going to hate him.
Well then they're fags and we're better off without them.
still gay as fuck
I just came here to find a thread about it, I really liked it. Makes me think what Kyoukai no Kanata should have been. OST is really good too.
They're going to cover Yuki's arc and Vaisravana's arc, they show a flashback of Yami and Nora before she became a stray in the OP.
Dat Taku Iwasaki OST
Why did they make Hiyori give him her scarf instead of Yukine taking her clothes from her leaving her to freeze in the anime? That was important to show how much of a douchebag he is.
Because he's not a douchebag. He's a dead 14 year old boy who suddenly became the weapon of a random god.
Nora did worse things to Yato than Yukine ever did and Yukine apologized for that meanwhile Nora never stops being a bitch. Even some of Vaisravana's regalias are far worse than Yukine.
Actually Yato had a weak moment when he contemplated how much better a shinki Hiiro is compared to Yukine, as she (somehow) never wavered in face of danger nor temptation, and thus never hurt him as his shinki
Yes, and then they'll ramp up the shota suffering, and then he'll become a cute and lovable character. It'll be okay.
Yep, it is.
>This anime is actually really, really amazing
It's like OP is actually really, really new.
- Rumors of NTR
- Male shinki
Droppability rating increases.
>- Rumors of NTR
Lies and trolling and /a/ doesn't know what NTR means anymore.
This anime is anime as fuck, cute girl with some fanservice but not too much >>100162003, cute boy >>100162338, martial fighting against monsters, katana, and so on.
I can't really explain it better.
Who's the dead miko girl from the OP? What's Yato's real name? Why is there still no romance between Yato and Hiyori after 9 volumes?
Nora, Yaboku, the romance is subtle.
Indeed, way too subtle to dispel the rumors of NTR.
By now NTR mostly means muh ship got butthurt
Hiyori is love
There's no NTR and at this point Yato x Hiyori will be the end couple unless the author wants a tragic ending or some angst shit
Main character of the season. That flawless casting. Shame he was criminally underused in Galilei Donna.
Which is the best fansub to watch Noragami? Funi sucks
FFFeeps I guess. But I haven't been able to watch the second episode yet. They were better than HS the first episode.
Pretty much, sadly.
I love the atmosphere there.
I would wear his fuwa fuwa scarf.
I don't like his scarf actually, it clashes to much with his outfit either because of it's color or rugged looks. Or both.
A different color might work better.
But the point is that if I'm wearing his scarf, we don't have to worry about it matching the rest of his outfit anymore.
That's the whole point.
>the point is that if I'm wearing his scarf, we don't have to worry about it matching the rest of his outfit anymore
Yato is like Masaomi and Izaya's illegitimate child.
Hiyori is a goddamn miracle of the universe.
Yuki Kaiji character gonna ruin shit as usual.
>Yuki Kaiji character gonna ruin shit as usual.
This is my greatest fear. I seriously hope he doesn't. I really, really fucking hope he doesn't.
>That flawless casting
It's just a shame I can't help but think Arararagi whenever he speaks.
He should do more Q-Vier roles so he gets what he deserves while being good at it.
That's yuru fuwa scarf.
Why so much Kaji hate. His character starts off as annoying, later he becomes a cute shota
People don't like character development.
Definitely one of the top contenders for my personal AOTS.
Anime-only fags don't know about his character development.
He is 14.
Q-Vier was 14 too. It's stretching the term but as long as it looks shota, you might as well go with it.
Shota enough for me.
I really liked the first episode, the dynamic between the two main characters was quite fun. Plus Hiyori's obsession with the Jungle Savate guy was both cute as fuck and led to some awesome scene with her kick. The OP was catchy and the fighting animation was just as one would expect from Bones.
However this episode felt a bit weak. It's not really bad, but it didn't really stand out either. I laughed at the scene with Yukine at the end but that's it. I hope it gets better, or at least doesn't get any worse.
>Plus Hiyori's obsession with the Jungle Savate guy was both cute as fuck
MAI LORDO TOONO-SAMA
>Yuki Kaji character comes in and acts like a faggot straight away I don't like his character already.
Oh ho, boy, you're in for a ride then.
Scanlators need to pick up the fucking pace.
I like it,it's fun. And holy shit that music during the fight scene, and in general, can't wait for the ost.
Both Hiyori and Yato are qt pies. Are they OTP? I haven't read the manga.
What's going on here? Why the tiny crown?
>Are they OTP?
Yes. It's a lot like Alive (I guess Nora could be the shitty childhood friend). You get a nice mother-father-son dynamic with Hiyori, Yato and Yukine.
Ignore the people whinging about NTR and homolust, it's bullshit.
Yato borrowing Hiyori's body.
Surely this will get animated right?
I doubt it.
OST is by the guy who did the Gatchaman CROWDS OST. No wonder it's so great
>It's possible for Hiyori to become possessed and lose herself
Mindbreak doujins when?
>Mindbreak doujins when?
No thanks, I only want tender loving selfcest between her and her body (with Yato inside).
But it's a perfect setup for it.
It's going to be animated in an OVA which comes with the manga's volume 10 in February
Release date of volume 10 with the OVA
Sounds great, hopefully FFF won't take 6 months to sub it.
Everyone go on their IRC/site and tell them to hurry up.
Oh sweet they're animating chapter 25.
I used Dame for the first episode since I didn't know FFF was doing it. FFF is probably better, but Dame's were alright.
You're liking Noragami?
then you'll probably like also Yozakura Quartet 2013. grab a couple eps and tell me.
Loving the show so far. I'm not quite loving the shota yet, though, and from what I hear he's going to be a huge dick for a while. I wish the other lady was still his weapon.
Nora is still his weapon and a yandere.
you're thinking of damedame, different sub group
I'm mostly using HS because they're the fastest. As far as I've seen, both DDY and FFF were a day late and unfortunately I'm too impatient. I guess I can't use the "discussion would die off by the time" excuse, though, since this thread is still around.
I like the manga, but the anime's faces weren't very good.
So commercially, will this show be THE successor to Soul Eater for Bones?
>by the time the other subs come out*
AOTS for sure until BONES rapes it.
>So commercially, will this show be THE successor to Soul Eater for Bones?
If BONES rapes it. We don't for for sure that they will.
Why would you take someone to the hospital for narcolepsy? You can't cure that shit.
Love everything about it. Sunday can't come soon enough.
There are medicines that help significantly though.
I want to cover Hiyori in blankets when she has out of body experiences.
I want to keep her body safe by snuggling with it.
DameDame are jokesubs.
Damedesuyo are supposedly very low quality subs, you know, just like hadena is/was.
Reminder that you aren't wireless.
I want to hand her hot coffee when she comes back to her body.
It's really chill, but OP please don't exaggerate like this, you just attract shitposters and trolls. The threads have been great so far.
crab-ayakashi is not an option, what is this shit
>wagglan dat tail to attract attention
she attracted the attention of my one-eyed monster all right
Why must you make me choose between Yato and Hiyori?
This. Let's not try to draw too much attention.
>Hiyori for mindbreaking
What the fuck anon.
Go back to the Love Lab thread Royal.
I don't post in Love Lab threads anymore, and anyway there isn't one right now.
What's sad about this is that the relationship between Noragami and Yato will never work.
Unless Yato can become human, or Noragami dies. Even the solution to her out of body problems is to cut her out of the Far Shore completely. And I don't think there's a mechanism for Yato becoming human.
Damn it man, don't go bringing up things I've put in the inner depths of my soul.
not seeing the problem, what kind of shitty god doesn't sleep with pure maidens?
If you read the spoiler, if Yato fixes-Oh
Oh wow, I called Hiyori 'Noragami' for some bizarre reason.
Anyway, the solution will throw her back into the human world, Yato will become background scenery to her, and he'll remain such unless she wants to continually drop her body all the time.
And she can't rightly square her supernatural life with her living one, how would a relationship with a person whom your parents can't see at the best of times and forget about at all other times even work?
With the power of love.
Anyways, if a human can be Yato's "father", I don't see why Hiyori can get with in the end.
This. I was really taken aback by how much I enjoyed the first episode. I went in expecting just another generic supernatural series but still gave it a chance because Bones. I was very impressed by how enjoyable and well made it actually turned out, and it looks beautiful.
Then pick mindbreaking, obviously.
It's probably good that the mangafags didn't overhype the show, but at the same time I can't believe how few people knew about Noragami (or Alive) before now.
Don't be too optimistic >>100198273
And I swear some of the posts in these threads are attempts.
Didn't even notice that.
I wanted to hype it, but threads 404'd easily and I just don't know how to say good things. I mean nobody would take me seriously if I used OP's kind of language out of nowhere.
Hey fellow mangafags, I just fucking realized this.
>I wanted to hype it
Don't. Hyping on /a/ only breeds evil 98% of the time. Look what happened to Kill la Kill and SnK. Look what happened to Watamote.
No ambulance driver is gonna say "nah I'm sure it's just narcolepsy" and decline to drive a person to a hospital.
Not even if the patient carries a narcolepsy card. The only way she doesn't go to the hospital is if she wakes up in time and refuses to go. The ambulance driver will then need to document that they offered to drive patient to hospital but patient refused and walked away - in triplicates.
I'm not sure if I'm even capable of hyping. I just wanted to say something like 'it's good I'll be watching it', but that doesn't sound convincing either.
I love the series and read all that was out in one night when my internet was being piss poor, and not a week later anime announcements were about. I can't think how to explain what I like about it so there's not really a tagline to give. I guess I like supernatural things with deity crap and character drama. That's hardly a sales pitch. This is exactly why I don't work for a publisher.
With the way Adachitoka's building the story, it looks like they'll never remain together. The best we'll get is probably a bitter-sweet ending.
There's a scene where Yuki's doing the math questions that Hiyori taught her, and talked about how he'll watch her grow up, get a job, get married and lead her life. He eventually started to cry, realising that when she moves on, she won't even remember him
Foreshadowing, I'm calling it
It doesn't have any major twists or gimmicks, so maybe it's the sort of thing that would never generate massive hype.
If you're talking to a mangafag and say "by the artists who did Alive" they'll understand and get properly excited. For the people watching the anime I think have the draw was VAs and OST.
I wouldn't mind some delicious and depressing star-crossed love.
I mean, anything will be better than the boring childhood friend swooping in out of the left field and ruining the best pairing.
Good point. I like it being comfy but comfy is a little bland.
Is this in the raw chapters?
Yuki sees Hiyori as a mother figure right? I'm going to be sad if the end of this series is Hiyori getting fixed and forgetting about 9/10ths of the cast, and Yato pining over a love that was never meant to be.
I personally think it could lead either way.
But if you see this:
This guy's human and he's supposedly Yato's "father". This means that she can maintain relations with the Gods in some form or shape through some sort of magix.
Space Dandy wasn't disappointing I had fun.
So he was crying once he saw the kid's life story? Best character.
Reminder that the chapter where Yato possesses Hiyori's body will in fact be animated in the OVA bundled with volume 10.
So anime's going to cover 1-24 confirmed? Welp.
So what do you make of it, CS/a/?
Mom and dad divorced, mom left with sister, Yukine was killed by his abusive, alcoholic dad?
Fuck you /a/, you are making me pick up everything again.
And I'm about to lose my internet soon.
Looks about right.
Seems about right
DDD or FFF? I went with FFF for ep.1 and DDD for ep.2 and I liked both, but I think I will go with DDD for their weaboo track, I think FFF tends to localize more than I like.
I prefer DDY too, though I think I'm in the minority.
oh well that's damn shame. It looks promising
probably more because it's a minority of people who tried ddy in the first place. fuck da haters, fff fucked up nisekoi, i'll stick with ddy unless fansub reviews come out and change my mind
Isn't the manga not finished yet? Are we getting an anime original ending?
Based Lotus Juice.
9 volumes and ongoing.
I don't want to get your hopes up but if that stuff about the OVA is true, things are suddenly sounding less ORIGINAL ENDING than expected.
We might actually be getting chapters 1-24 adapted. A little worried about that though.
I'm tired of you fucking DDY devs posting your shitty announcements everywhere.
I really liked the mysterious air
This has to be either bait or someone new.
Is the MC-araragi?
MC is a girl anon
There are three MCs.
They didn't show any of that in the manga, by the way. Any moonreaders able to tell us if it's taken from later material, or completely original?
Completely original. It was a nice addition though.
This is my fetish.
You know, since it's a direct link between her soul and her body, you could say that you're stroking her soul when you touch it.
