Manga Review: Noragami: Stray God, Volume 17, by Adachitoka

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: October 2016
Volumes: 18 (Hiatus)
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 16. 18.

Goodreads Synopsis:

The battle intensifies as Bishamon approaches the crafter. Kazuma and her other shinki are spared divine retribution, but Kazuma will stop at nothing to save his master from punishment. Meanwhile, Yato faces Takemikazuchi in an attempt to reason with the Heavens. But how can he fight a force of nature?


Veena is being attacked and trying to reach her goal. The Stray is not helping matters at all. Simultaneously, Yato is fighting Takemikazuchi, and it's quite a tough battle for him.
During all of this, Hiyori is trying to find something useful to do. She's trying to find them, and trying to help, but she isn't really doing much yet. Then there's Kazuma, who is on a mission to save Veena. His commitment to Veena is impressive, and I really do like their relationship. But, he's also committed to sacrificing himself if he has to, in order to save her. It's a bit unhealthy, and does not look very good for him at the moment.
In the last part of the volume, we get to see the history between Takemikazuchi and his shinki Kiun. It's rather dark, which is to be expected. His and Kazuma's relationship with their master is unsettlingly similar.
I absolutely love this series. I just need more of it.
