Back to Noragami

So we got back to Noragami today, and our main reaction to this volume is OOOOOOHHHHH NOOOOOOOOO!!!! There's also a lot of, "NOOOOOOOOOO!" and, "" But there's also a fair amount of, "Okay, yeah," and a little bit of, "Aww, that's nice." It's a good series.

I mean, obviously I can't go into detail because that would be spoilers, but I can say that there is one important piece of evidence, the translation of which may change entirely based solely on a gag surrounding it in the bonus manga at the end of the volume. This is the kind of thing Noragami does to us, but it's probably also a big part of why we like it so much.

And there was a mention of the pandemic! ...I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. It's probably just a neutral thing. But I always figured Noragami would mention it if it could, since they mentioned Stationmaster Tama and all.

And it made us work late! I mean, of course there wasn't any actual coercion, and there were other things that contributed, like a call from our mom, but it was about quitting time, and we weren't done with our first draft, and we might have said, "There's no rush; we'll finish it tomorrow," but dang if we didn't want to finish that part. It's just so good!

Today I'm thankful for getting to work on Noragami, managing to finish our first draft without too too much trouble, getting a mermaid sofa recipe from Pascal, Takemikazuchi's fabulous perm, and the hope that eventually they'll make it all better.
