DF’s Thoughts…

Is it just me, or are sequels never really as good as its predecessors?

Same old goodness with the same old lovable cast of characters from the previous season. The formula wasn’t changed much but something about this season made it feel slightly lackluster compared to season 01. Though, they did do a decent job in extending the story and adding a very healthy amount of new characters to the show.

From my recollection, the show was pretty much split into two halves. The first part of the show focused heavily on the character, Bishamon. The second half of the show focused more heavily on our male lead, Yato. Not an awful creative decision but it sometimes made the show feel like it was dragging on for an eternity.

The comedy prevailed less in this season as it was more plot-heavy and character-driven to give the audience a sense of “completion”. Despite that, it still left a plot line unfinished as a casual “fuck you, read the manga” type of shit.

DF’s Thoughts…

A real gem; almost drowned out in the rom-com ridden year of 2014

Noragami is fucking excellent. An action-packed supernatural show with tones of comedy and plenty of lightheartedness. It had real snarky humor at times, with a combination of deadpan and tsukkomi-boke humor as well. Fun characters all around and each of them bringing their own flair to the show. Male lead, Yato, is an amazing motherfucker.

The art was very fitting to the show’s theme although some scenes were a bit lacking at times. The animation(s) remained fluid though. What I really enjoyed was the music/sounds/tones used throughout the show. Very good tracks for a “action-oriented” show. Also, the VAs chosen were terrific. Male lead voiced by my favorite male VA was a huge bonus!

The ending sequences for the show was a bit lacking in comparison to the core of the story. It left some loose ends and things unexplained but luckily there is a season 02 after this so hopefully the aforementioned gets wrapped up once and for all.

Also, go watch the two OADs, they were hilarious.
