From now on I will write out scores for the shows I’ve watched. For anime these scores will include Story, Characters, Animation, Music, Total and Average. I’m, for now, using a 0-5 system. 5, is awesome, 4 is good, 3 is neutral, 2 is bad, 1 is horrible, 0 means I can’t score it. Scores and what I score might change over time.
Hiyori Iki (CV: Maaya Uchida) is your everyday girl, who loves watching wrestling. One day as she and her friends are going from school, she sees a guy running in front of a lorry. She jumps out to save him, but in front of the lorry, her soul is separated from her body and although she’s unsure how reliable the guy is, she has to ask him – the god Yato (CV: Hiroshi Kamiya) – to help her with her problem. But Yato isn’t fulfilling her wish although she did pay him 5 yen and while she’s waiting for her wish to be fulfilled she learns how the world of the gods work and befriends Yato and his regalia Yukine (CV: Yuuki Kaji).
Although this show looked promising it let me down about two-thirds in. It did get to a point where I was going “Yes, this is awesome” though, and then it was just downhill from there. It made me curious of the original work though, a comic with the same name, so I’m sure I’ll get to reading it soon enough.
I admit I really like the characters. But except for Yukine who went from a good kid, to a terrible teenager, to a good kid, no one else had much of a character development. Other than that, the music was awesome in my opinion. The intro by Hello Sleepwalkers I do know was a hit among more people than me alone, the ending was a little meh, but the soundtrack by Taki Iwasaki was well done and fitting for the show.
Overall it was decent, receiving an average of 3.5 out of 5 on the scores.
