ノラガミ 19 (Noragami: Stray God, #19)ノラガミ 19 by Adachitoka

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I am glad that the big heavens against Bishamon arc is over. It dragged on too long for my tastes. This volume is about picking up after that.

Things are still messy. Bishamon is out of commission. The Stray is inserting herself into Yukine's life. Hiyori and Yato have to face their feelings and how hopeless this might be. Yato, however, has bigger issues: dealing with his father.

There are some very good moments in this, very emotional ones, especially with Yato realizing that he wants to protect Yukine from this quest and depending on Hiyori's belief in him to keep him safe but she knows that she has forgotten him once before. She fears she is not enough and that was very touching.

As always the art in this is just gorgeous.

This one is so emotional. There isn't much I can say without spoiling it so I won't say much other than this arc is going to be bittersweet. To save Yukine, Yato has left him behind and is in search of another shiki to borrow (or turn stray) to help him. He burns bridges, he's rejected and finds help in a not-completely-unexpected place.

In the meantime we learn more about both the Stray (making her much more multi dimensional than she has been) and Kazuma. I can't wait to see more.

The art in this is as lovely as always.
