I was going to write a preview of the new anime series that will air in the second half of winter (or Q1 2014). Lots of amazing shows coming out (Hozuki no Reitetsu; Space Dandy), but Noragami takes the cake.
Must have been by chance when I first got to know about it on manga around early October. The story’s theme, character development, and humor were hard to resist and easy to follow. I later learned about the anime’s release and seiyuus working on the project (Kamiya Hiroshi; Kaji Yuuki). Then I had the awesome privilege of watching the pilot episode at the Anime Festival Asia. And now this trailer affirms why I think this anime will take the cake as the leading anime to watch next quarter.
Then I saw this:
ONO DAISUKE and FUKUYAMA JUN are on the list!!! Albeit as secondary characters.
I’m personally excited to see that this anime has managed to attract such a stellar cast. Even Uchida Maaya (voicing the female protagonist Iki Hiyori) did an amazing job when I saw the episode.
Expectations are now soaring.
