So I guess the story of this season is that Bishamon is being betrayed by one of her many Regalia. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to see Suzuha so brutally murder so quickly. And after seeing Suzuha killed in that fashion, I was really expecting the blame for his death to be shifted to Yato immediately. I haven’t fully given up on that possibility, but I would hope that someone on Bishamon’s side would be smart enough to point out that it would be stupid for Yato to kill Suzuha because it would piss off his own Regalia. That being said, it looks the main focus of this season will be Yato making up with Bishamon by saving her from one of her own.
While this week’s episode seemed to show a lot more weakness from Yukine as he finds out that he may be forgotten, the preview for next week’s episode seems to suggest that he may be the stronger of the two main characters as he tries to find out what happened to Suzuha. I’d like to see the roles reverse as Yukine has to cover for Yato, but I won’t discount the possibility that he breaks down again after finding out that Suzuha is dead. Let’s see how far Yukine has come from the first season.
