Episode 3 has such a shocking turn of events. I didn’t even realise that I was holding my breath for the last 10 minutes of the episode. The episode begins with the revelation of the truth behind Aiha. She is corrupted out of jealousy for Tsuguha, who “stole” her place as Bishamon’s weapon.
Aww… it’s a Yato X Hiyori moment! According to the manga, there will be more of such moments in the future, so look forward to it, Yato X Hiyori fans!
I am so angry at Kugaha. How dare he trick Kazuma into thinking that Bishamon’s agony is because of Suzuha’s death, even though he was the one who ordered the death! Sheesh. My blood is still boiling. Now Kazuma thinks that he really is at fault, and that he didn’t even notice that a Regalia died. Don’t worry Kazuma, I’ll support you.
Yukine finds out that Suzuha is dead from Kazuma. In his pursuit to know more, Yukine pushes Kazuma is accidentally enters the realm of Bishamon’s manor. (check out that castle :O) Kugaha had been sowing seeds of distrust into Bishamon’s mind, making her suspicious of Kazuma’s involvement with Yato. Yukine accuses Bishamon of not being a good master to Suzuha and Bishamon fired a pistol at him, only to be blocked by a line drawn by Kazuma. This marks the final sign of betrayal for Bishamon, who initially wanted to revoke Kazuma’s name but decides to just send him to exile.
Knowing that Yato can’t call Yukine and is unarmed, Aiha is sent to attack Yato and leads him to a trap of countless spider Phantoms. Kazuma appears to save Hiyori, but is dumbfounded when he couldn’t restrain Kugaha, who is most likely a stray like Nora. Yato returns afterwards, but the playground is empty, except for Hiyori’s sleeping body.
Whoa. That was one intense episode right from the second half. Episode 2 was heart-wrenching, but episode 3 makes me burn with fury. Noragami Aragoto is here to bring us on this emotional rollercoaster. Brace yourselves, everyone.
