Now that Yato has defeated Takemikazuchi, he must protect Bishamon long enough for the thunder god to convince the Heavens to call off their punishment. Meanwhile, Yukin strives to keep Yato and the crafter alive to ensure Yato’s safety, but when Bishamon takes deadly aim at Kōto, Yukin resorts to drastic measures…
One fight ends, only for an even bigger one to start. Yato finishes his fight with Takemikazuchi, and then goes to help Bishamon. Meanwhile, we see that Kazuma has reached Bishamon, only for a painful departure. Hiyori is trying to do what she can to help, though I'm not quite sure what that is leading to. In the midst of this, we get a little backstory, regarding Kazuma's nickname for Bishamon and how it came about; we also see that Kofuku got her nickname from Daikoku.
And then Yato and Yukine get taken in, and it's just—it's... It's awful and I'm so, so upset about it. It's painful to watch, and then that cliffhanger... I cannot believe it's ending there.
This volume had me really worked up, and really upset.
I am so upset that it's on hiatus at this point in the series. I really miss those monthly releases about now.
(On a side note, I do hope that the author is okay, and it's not too serious.)
