Kugaha is really laying on the crazy. I’m still not completely clear on what his intentions are…is it just to make Bishamon fight Yato to return a status of “god of destruction”? It seems like an easy answer, but it feels like he’s going pretty far out of bounds to achieve this to me. Maybe part of it is some sort of jealousy towards Kazuma? The part about Kugaha’s name not being effective was also interesting…does it simply mean he got a different name somehow? Or did Bishamon always intend for his real name to be secret?
It looks like Yato will have to fight Bishamon next week. I’m assuming that we’ll also find out more about what really happened between the two in the past. Based on what the Regalia were saying this week about their effectiveness without Kazuma, the battle should be even enough. I look forward to watching it. I suppose Hiyori’s role in this season is being reduced to “damsel in distress”…seems like a pretty steep demotion from last season.
