So I’m willing to admit that I got a bit too excited while watching Yato put Kugaha down this week. My evaluation of Kugaha was basically the same, so it was great to see him put in his place, especially with all of the high and mighty talk he’s been spewing. In that sense, the first half of the episode was pretty enjoyable to me. The second half…well, I guess that was just wrapping everything up, so I can’t really complain.
Next week’s episode should introduce a new arc, presumably revolving around the man fighting Yato in the opening sequence. I’m also assuming that he’s the one Nora calls “father” at the end of this week’s episode. Based on snippets from the preview, it looks like this man might be some sort of rich kid…though I don’t see why he would offer Yato a briefcase of money. Perhaps he pretends to hire Yato for something? But that would probably mean he’s not Nora’s mystery man…why go to Yato right after asking Nora to get him?
