ノラガミ 8 (Noragami: Stray God, #8) by AdachitokaAfter the last volume of Noragami, I couldnt decide whether I liked Yato or not. He went from one extreme to the next, from loud and obnoxious to quiet and vulnerable. Volume 8 goes a long way to explain this dichotomy of personality within Yato.
The volume opens with Yato seemingly under house arrest by a mysterious figure that Yato refers to as his father. This situation is not a new occurrence and Yato reflects on this cycle of where he is permitted freedom only to be reigned back in and controlled by his father. Yato, a god of calamity, finds himself assigned to the basest of assignments to fulfill, which he does as apparently he has no choice, but his eyes deaden with the work. He would rather be a god that brings joy to humans.
So, I finally feel like I have a grasp on Yatos character. His needy persona is only that - a mask - to hide from confronting the emotional abuse hes suffered (he is visibly shaken at his fathers voice). In order to survive as a god, Yato must be remembered by humans, which explains why his tenuous link to Hiyori means so much to him and why he can be overbearing at times. Hes in essence, pretty desperate.
A question comes to mind regarding who this father of Yatos is. Yato has mentioned a few times thus far that whatever a god does is right. If his father is also a god, does that mean that whatever he does to Yato - the abuse, the control - is right, too? I dont think so, so it makes me think that maybe gods are more fallible than Yato would want to think. Maybe this train of thought is what he has used to accept his situation.
I love a series that gets to me like Noragami has. Add gorgeous artwork and its the whole package. Highly recommended.
