I am writing to you because you said you’ll grant my wish. I’m currently in a situation where I’m going to ask for help from anyone who is available. You’ll be able to help, right?
You see, my favorite anime this Winter Season just ended – Noragami. I dunno if you are familiar with that show, or if you are even watching anime at all, but gosh, it’s amazing! After watching the final episode, I’ve become so restless that I searched for a lot of noragami pics and suddenly a dialog box appeared! It states that you’re a god (aha) and you’ll grant my wish just for 5-yen. I initially thought that it was a scam or a virus or whatever but nonetheless, the email address stated is stuck on my mind.
Anyway, Noragami had been one of the shows that I’m mostly looking forward to every week. It is consistent episode per episode in delivering an engaging story full of interesting characters. Everything that the show is trying to execute has been handled really well and the balancing of different elements makes this show one of the best this season.Maybe I’m exaggerating a bit here, but that’s what I’m feeling.
The drama, the comedy, the unsettling supernatural elements plus the additional romantic feel are blended really well! I can’t ask for more.
I really adore all the characters. I really do. In fact, the main character who happens to share the same name with you (can you believe that?) managed to become one of my favorite characters of all times! Well, he is not given that much depth, as compared to Yukine, given the short amount of time allotted to the whole show but his personality is just so adorable. His dorky-ness is of another level!
And by the latter part of the series, when he is being such a cute boyfriend (I’m just assuming, but hey!) to Hiyori Ikki… gosh, my shipping sensors exploded! Give me more of that!
Speaking of Hiyori, can I just say that she’s one of the very few female characters that I really cared for? Just like Yato, she hasn’t been given some more depth even though when I checked the manga, there’s more to her than that. I wouldn’t hold it against the whole show though.
Let’s move on to Yukine, shall we? He was given a whole arc just for himself so he is the most developed character in the show. Actually, I wanted to know what his life looks like when he was still alive since we have been given some hints. Of all the things that he had done, I didn’t hate him even a little. Why? Because he is such a baby. No, really, it is because his actions are within the realm of reason.
The visuals and the sounds are also great. Oh my, it’s a whole package! Both worked hand-in-hand in building up the whole atmosphere of the story. The soundtracks are cool and the animation is sharp and neat. Also, the character designs are really great especially, the characters’ eyes! Look at them and you’ll see.
If I will be making a list of my favorite anime, I believe that this one will make it to my top 10.
Oh my, I’ve been blabbing so much about it that I almost forgot why I’m writing this email to you.
After watching the last episode (which is so CUTE by the way), I’ve been really, really sad because I won’t be watching this show again for the following week. Although I have to accept the reality, I don’t want to! I want more… more!
So, please Yato-god… please grant my wish and let Noragami have another season! I’ll leave the 5 yen in my room and it’s up to you on how you’ll get it.
I expect a positive response to my wish, Yato.
