Yay, it's up on Hulu! Just finished the first episode, and while it's not the most impressive thing I've seen this season, I really enjoyed it quite a bit.

I like how relatively resilient the girl is to the news that she is now in the void between life and death.

This looks like it could be a favorite of the season for me.

Yato is surprisingly likable and this central trio look REALLY hopefully for being a nice little family/group.

Same; it's similar to Nisekoi, in the "I've seen it all before but this is a really good rendition" kind of way.

Both of these are among seven anime this season which refuse to leave my top 5.

I really like this show. Yato and his entire dilemma is hilarious and the plot has a lot of potential. It's one of my favorites this season so far.

I see what you did there...

But yeah, who cares if this is somewhat similar to other shows we've seen? If they can bring out believable, authentic characters and make their interactions feel genuine, they will tell the story.

I'm not really sure how this falls into the "I've seen it all before" but ok... regardless of that though, the story itself is interesting.

It's more like a feeling, Noragami is highly reminiscent of a number of things I've seen or read before. From KyoAni it reminds me of a hybrid cross between Hyouka and Beyond the Boundary; from manga there's Junya Inoue's Otogi Matsuri: Dark Offering (pictured) where five characters made pacts with local gods to fight evil spirits; and the flashes of backstory we've seen for Yuki so far really remind me of Kara no Kyoukai: Paradox Spiral.



None of that's a bad thing though, I'm not saying Noragami is like a carbon copy of anything. It just shares a number of familiar elements, which underlie a new story that I think is really quite interesting. It's doing well in my book.

It just feels familiar, while also being new. Instead of having a brand-new "wow" factor. Which is totally fine. Plus several of the seiyuu are big names, which has got all sorts of anime subliminally jumping up and down in my subconscious.

Ep. 3

Yato meets his former Regalia, and she is now a miko for a highly-respected god. Since it is entrance exam time that he has his hands full, so it's Yato's job to slay the demons who are stressing out students to the point of suicide. Yukine is really powerful, but too powerful that he cuts more than the demon. Another nice episode here, and certainly it is great to see that there's another god that's looking out for him and his egomaniac antics.

Episode three was again quite enjoyable. The "Hataraku Kami-sama" and living out of dumpsters may get old very soon however. And how that he has his regalia, other than the fact that I like her character, one wonders why he hasn't solved her case? She did prepay after all...

I don't understand why people don't like Yukine, I prefer him over Yato already.

I don't get it either. I like Yukine way more than Yato at this present moment ( plus, Yukine is just adorable ). :/


--------------

This show continues to surprise me. I didn't go into it expecting much, but it's became one of the shows I'm most excited for each week ( along with Nobunagun and Nagi no Asukara ). I hope it doesn't falter later on.
