Iki Hiyori - seriously one of the anime characters I relate to the most. She is fun, intensely caring and loyal, and is also a total badass!! She is an inspiration for me when I need it!
Hiyori pushes Yato out of the way of a bus, but is hit by it herself. She is miraculously unhurt, except she develops the ability to drop her body and become a 'phantom'. During these times her body is asleep, and it is this phenomena that instigates her, Yato, and Yukine's relationship. Her snooze attacks are hilarious, although that would be freaking terrifying if it actually happened.
And, Hiyori is not afraid of standing up for what she believes in or of defending who and what she cares about! Being a closet martial arts otaku has its perks, especially when you can leave your body and become seriously strong and acrobatic!
Yukine is Yato's regalia, a human spirit gods can save and name to give then another shot at life, while also serving as some sort of item for the god when they call the name they gave that other form. For Yukine, Yukine is the name Yato gave to him in his human form and Sekki is his regalia name. When Yato calls for Sekki, he turns into a beautiful long katana, with only a cloth wrapping for a grip. More a naked blade than a fully fledged katana, as Hiyori says. Yukine has some issues at first, but becomes so kind, strong, and loyal! I don't wanna give any spoilers, so I'll just say that Yukine is seriously amazing, and Yato would not be able to get by without him!
Yato is a 'noragami' or 'stray god', and is known as a delivery god, helping out anyone with requests, for the price of 5 yen. Yato can be very strong and scary, having been a war god, and as Kofuku says, he's a very scary god. However, we mostly get Yato's incorrigible and hilarious side, as he bubbles about getting his own shrine and millions of followers one day, 'just you watch'! We get to see a lot more depth into Yato's story and his personality in the second series, but no spoilers, so I'll say that he is absolutely amazing and one of the best written protagonists ever, of all time.
Oh, yeah, and Yato's eyes are the most incredible thing ever!
Bishemonten: the strongest war god and one of the seven gods of fortune, Bishemon is a beautiful tall, athletic blonde woman typically seen riding a lion (one of her shinki, yay Kuraha!) and dressed very scanitly when she heads to battle. This last is due to her entire raiment being comprised of her Shinki, and they protect and aid her in battle. Bishemon is fleshed out a lot in Season 2, and she is hands down one of my favorites. Also, there is Kazuma, Bishemon's right-hand man and known throughout the Shinki community as one of the greats. While he turns into an earring as his other form, he provides great intelligence, and analysis of situations to Bishemon, as well as providing counsel and support whilst in human form.
Kofuku: although going by the trade name Kofuku Ebisu, another of the seven gods of fortune, Kofuku is actually the god of poverty. She is usually incredibly upbeat and funny, calling the terrifying Bishemonten 'Bisha' and running and flying-tackle-hugging her in one scene. However, she is highly regarded by the other gods of fortune and Bishemonten is deferential to her. Kofuku has one shinki, Daikoku, who provides an imposing figure to her otherwise hairbrained appearance. Daikoku is incredibly fond of Kofuku, and is protective of her, taking care of her and watching her to make sure she doesn't send anyone spiraling into debt *cough, cough*.
And, apparently that's all the pictures I can put in one card, so stick around for more (the next one will probably be Yatori!) Hope you enjoyed!
