Noragami Aragoto OVA is hilarious. The main Noragami / Noragami Aragoto series is good, but this OVA is just going to have you laughing your head off, no doubt about it. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, so lets just say there are quite the few surprising and hilarious scenes!
As with the first season, these two OVA are completely unrelated to each other, and mostly disconnected from the main story. They are both silly little snippets of the life of our godly characters, the first one in the classical setting of a “school trip to a ski resort / onsen”, the second one in the just as classical setting of a “date to the amusement park”. Yeah, expect quite a bit of flirting in the latter. But I’m not telling you who flirts with whom…
Note: the second OVA takes place after the end of season 2, so you should have watched it first, or be ready for some moderate spoilers.
Considering the stories in both episodes, I found one story to be good and the other to be great. It definitely wasn't boring for me but some of the plot twists that occurred were more expected or anticipated knowing how the TV series works.
The art's as normal as other good anime I've seen, but I liked some of the colours used in the 2nd episode that gave some kind of emotional effect with Hiyori's sad look with the happy colours contrasting with it, including the dark background of the night sky.
The sound is pretty clear and concise, and the dubs were done well, too. I like the songs for both the opening and ending of the anime, as it's really catchy and interesting. However, doesn't it feel like that the ending for Noragami Aragoto sounds like a slower, more mellow version of Kirby's Gourmet Race?
There isn't much I can say for the characters in this OVA, but what I found intriguing and was curious of was Hiyori's expression and what she might be thinking when she arrived to the festival and what kind of conflicted thoughts she must have, not to mention Yuki's sudden change from annoyance for Capypa Land to wonder and awe. I guess that's the magical power of the Capypas...
I found this to be really enjoyable. The fight scenes are pretty awesome, but a change of scenery with a calm story is a nice way to feel relaxed and free from any major troubles in the anime.
Overall, this was a very good anime. I will be hoping for the next season, otherwise, we wouldn't know what would be going on with Nora and her new master (can't include spoilers).
