ノラガミ 8 (Noragami: Stray God, #8) Review

    Yukine learns more spells. Yato learns some spoilery stuff. We the readers learn who is behind the masks. But our heroine is stuck with boring old school life and awkward blind dates. Poor Ika!

    The series took a turn towards the darker side in this volume. Yato's past is looming all over this one, with the sad notes by Hyori, who is starting to forget them.

    After the last volume of Noragami, I couldn't decide whether I liked Yato or not. He went from one extreme to the next, from loud and obnoxious to quiet and vulnerable. Volume 8 goes a long way to explain this dichotomy of personality within Yato.The volume opens with Yato seemingly under house arrest by a mysterious figure that Yato refers to as his father. This situation is not a new occurrence and Yato reflects on this cycle of where he is permitted freedom only to be reigned back in and cont After the last volume of Noragami, I couldn't decide whether I liked Yato or not. He went from one extreme to the next, from loud and obnoxious to quiet and vulnerable. Volume 8 goes a long way to explain this dichotomy of personality within Yato.The volume opens with Yato seemingly under house arrest by a mysterious figure that Yato refers to as his father. This situation is not a new occurrence and Yato reflects on this cycle of where he is permitted freedom only to be reigned back in and controlled by his father. Yato, a god of calamity, finds himself assigned to the basest of assignments to fulfill, which he does as apparently he has no choice, but his eyes deaden with the work. He would rather be a god that brings joy to humans. So, I finally feel like I have a grasp on Yato's character. His needy persona is only that - a mask - to hide from confronting the emotional abuse he's suffered (he is visibly shaken at his father's voice). In order to survive as a god, Yato must be remembered by humans, which explains why his tenuous link to Hiyori means so much to him and why he can be overbearing at times. He's in essence, pretty desperate.A question comes to mind regarding who this father of Yato's is. Yato has mentioned a few times thus far that whatever a god does is right. If his father is also a god, does that mean that whatever he does to Yato - the abuse, the control - is right, too? I don't think so, so it makes me think that maybe gods are more fallible than Yato would want to think. Maybe this train of thought is what he has used to accept his situation.I love a series that gets to me like Noragami has. Add gorgeous artwork and it's the whole package. Highly recommended.

    Into the second season territory yato and Ebisu travel deep into Yomi. Hiyori almost forgets about Yato and Yukine, and there is fighting among the heavens. A great volume, i'm still behind by like 10 volumes but i'm slowly catching up

    It's not quite the same with Yato separated from his friends. It's interesting to see what's going on with Hiyori though.Edit: Still loving the thorough translation notes. I really appreciate the translators walking through their thought process, even if I don't always agree with some of them.They keep mentioning the name of the god place, I wish that was mentioned in the translator notes (maybe it was mentioned before and I missed it?)

    I am curious to see what will happen with “evil Yato” & the stray. I have so many questions!I was a sad when Hiyori almost forgot Yukine & Yato.The new guy/boyfriend is shady, I do not trust him !

    Pretty good volume, lots of reveals and Hiyori became a normal high school student for a while... a short while! 😂

    Another solid installment! I can see now where the end of the anime started cutting scenes out—it's great to be able to get the full picture. Even if some of the cut scenes are pretty darn depressing, they give me FEELS so I'm loving them.

    So Yato has a father who seems a bit of a bastard haha. Yato disappeared with Nora fulfill a task. Apparently, Nora (Hiro) is loyal to Yato's dad.The task was to save Ebisu from the underworld. Ebisu went to a quest to find this kotonoha which will be essential to become a mage.ma god who wants to be a mage is quite confusing for Yato but he decided to save him anyway.Yato matures a bit in this volume. He said he wants to make people happy, especially Hiyori.

But they're going into the Underworld for this 'job,' he & Nora.Meanwhile, Hiyori's busy with school & stuff & goes on a triple date with her friends to Capyperland - this place Yato love So Yato's trapped with his sister Nora & his father & they're making him do these awful jobs of killing people (who are bad to begin with, but still...) & he wants to go back home to Hiyori so she won't forget him & they say if he does one last job, he'll be free to go, so he agrees.

    The stray and Yato’s father have pretty much kidnapped him, making him do a job for them. While that’s happening, Hiyori is starting to forget about them, as her school life grows and she meets a cute boy. It’s definitely terrible to see it happen, her thinking about them one second and then drawing a blank the next. Thankfully Yukine pulls her back.Meanwhile, the gods are trying to deal with whoever is taking on the mask yokai, figuring out who it is and what to do about it. It’s a big betrayal The stray and Yato’s father have pretty much kidnapped him, making him do a job for them.

Thankfully Yukine pulls her back.Meanwhile, the gods are trying to deal with whoever is taking on the mask yokai, figuring out who it is and what to do about it. It’s a big betrayal for everyone, as it’s illegal and wrong. That’s going to get violent, I can tell.This series is a lot of fun, and I love how it can move from comedy to serious and violent to heartwarming so smoothly. It’s going to get dark again soon, serious stuff is happening.

    I will say it again - fujisaki can choke.also, reading this reminded me very heavily of kaz and inej from six of crows, and how kaz kept pretending that he was trying to rescue her because she was an 'important asset to the team' (lol sure we all believe THAT) and not because he was completely in love with her (I mean I could smell it from their first few scenes together. not sure if kaz thought he was being subtle-? bc he wasn't) similarly I found it amusing that yato uses the 'she's my only fo I will say it again - fujisaki can choke.also, reading this reminded me very heavily of kaz and inej from six of crows, and how kaz kept pretending that he was trying to rescue her because she was an 'important asset to the team' (lol sure we all believe THAT) and not because he was completely in love with her (I mean I could smell it from their first few scenes together. not sure if kaz thought he was being subtle-? bc he wasn't) similarly I found it amusing that yato uses the 'she's my only follower' excuse to explain why hiyori means so much to him. gosh. they're so cute.

    La storia procede lungo due fronti: da una parte Hiyori e Yukine che vivono le loro vite nell'attesa di Yato, dall'altra il nostro God on Delivery si è recato con Nora nello Yomi, seguendo le indicazioni del padre. Intanto si capisce che gli ayakashi sono governati da una divinità e si indaga per capire chi sia.

    Things are really building up in this volume. We know who the crafter and how Yato and Stray is involved and who is their mysterious father. Hiyori is away from the far shore for a while and almost forgets what she promised she never would that was kind of sad.

    Un po' prolisso rispetto agli altri ma comunque piacevole. Finalmente Yato inizia a rendersi conto di cosa vuole davvero, di chi vuole al suo fianco. Devo dire che la riproduzione Anime è molto fedele al manga, tranne per qualche dettaglio trascurabile. Non vedo l'ora di continuare!!

    Yato is so vulnerable here and it made my heart ache. And that bastard of a guy stole Hiyori's first kiss! Ebisu is a very interesting character ( also handsome ). However the best part is where Kazumi teaches Yukine spells.

    Hiyori in a normal high school romance - is it too good to be true? Meanwhile, the gods have fingered one of their own as the traitor, and Yato is forced to do his "father's" dirty work!

    I can feel that in the next volume, that's when things get good. I'm also pretty sure that's where the anime ends off, so time for new stuff!!
