Wait…wasn’t Kazuma lying on the ground next to Yato? How did he get out with Bishamon through the Soul Call? But questions aside, I really like how much Ebisu changed after meeting Yato and fighting together in the underworld. In fact, most of the characters had some pretty good moments this week. One thing that I found particularly interesting was how they treated Blessed Vessels this week. Up until now, they’ve been mostly brushed aside as a simple evolution for a Regalia, but this week really showed off how strong they become as a result.
The end of this week’s episode is an unfortunate cliffhanger. The preview doesn’t do much to help with showing Ebisu’s fate. I’d be annoyed if they let him die, though…it feels like he’s come so far and it’s a bit silly to just kill him off. Anyway, next week’s episode is the end, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Other than showing Ebisu’s fate, it looks like it’s just going to be an epilogue episode. As a final note, if any of you are curious how Hiyori was able to guess Yato’s real name (like I was), I found an answer online. Apparently, the second character in the name that Hiyori carved on the shrine is the kanji for “boku”, but looks similar to the katakana “to”. So you can sleep easy tonight!
