Adaptation Notes

  • The majority of Episode 4 adapts material that is not part of the main story of the manga. Rather, it is adapted from Noragami Shuuishuu Chapter 1.
  • In the manga, when Kuraha bites Yato, Yukine (Sekki) moves on his own to injure Kuraha's eye.[1] In the anime, Nora uses Bind to restrain Kuraha. Yato then escapes his jaw and cuts Kuraha's eye using Sekki.[2]
