Manga Review: Noragami: Stray God, Volume 8, by Adachitoka

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: November 2015
Volumes: 15+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 7. 9.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Yato is a homeless god. He doesn't even have a shrine, not to mention worshippers! So to achieve his ambitious goals, he's set up a service to help those in need (for a small fee), hoping he'll eventually raise enough money to build himself the lavish temple of his dreams. Of course, he can't afford to be picky, so Yato accepts all kinds of jobs, from finding lost kittens to helping a student overcome bullies at school.


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 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’m excited for the next one, and I am loving these monthly releases.
