Noragami (2014) s01e05 Episode Script

Borderline

1 Tadah! Here we have a Phantom! Y-Yato?! Mm! That reaction will do perfectly! It's easier to draw borderlines with hate and fear.
Borderlines? A borderline serves as a Regalia's shield and only weapon.
You did some pretty nice work the other day, so it's time I teach you it.
F-Flattery won't get you anywhere.
First, make your fingers into a halberd, then try drawing a line between you and the Phantom.
O-Okay.
A line! Wow! This is a borderline?! Yep, it acts as a boundary between "self" and "others.
" Phantoms can't cross it.
Can you do this too? C-Can I?! You and I can't.
Borderlines are a Regalia power.
Any Regalia can make them, but creating one this strong right off the bat? This is definitely a first, out of all the Regalias I know.
The Regalias he knows Umm, that girl you called "Nora" is a Regalia too, right? Oh, her? She's a friend with benefits.
Huh? "Noragami" I'm holding a loaded gun in one hand I'm coming for you on foot, while you stand there shaking Tick-tock, the clock hand moves, tick-tock All you've done is speed up this panic Tick-tock, the clock hand moves, tick-tock I'm coming for you, with no sign of stopping Tick-tock, the clock hand moves, tick-tock There's a boundary between end and beginning Tick-tock, the clock hand moves, tick-tock But we've come full-circle Silently, I waited all alone in a dim room Silently, I waited for the sound of the door being kicked down Silently, I waited all alone in a dim room Silently, I waited There's nothing to be afraid of now Holding my loaded gun I kick down the tightly-shut door The muzzle kicks back at point-blank and perforates my yesterday's self After taking the despair of, "Good night," my tomorrow's self sets out on foot Let's meet up again tonight I'm going to look after Yukine! - Huh? - Huh? Are you crazy? He can't stay with you.
You're the one he can't stay with! You don't even have a place to live or a semblance of a stable life! What with your ex-girlfriends, your affairs, and your friends with benefits! Your depravity knows no end! You're unfit to be his guardian! Yukine's better off staying with me! Get away from her! Hey! What do you think you're doing?! I'm gettin' stung like crazy here! Get your clammy hands off of him! Can't you see he doesn't like it?! Just look! I'm getting stung! Really stung! Sheesh! What's your problem?! I already told you! Whenever he has depraved thoughts, I end up in a world of pain! Depraved? Urgh, come on! A boy and a girl, living in the same house?! That's a sure-fire recipe for giving Yukine dirty thoughts! So the answer is absolutely no! We both know the real pervert is a certain someone in a jersey.
Yukine's a good boy.
There's nothing to worry about! Come with me, Yukine! Don't do it, Yukine! Chapter 5 I Borderline Your house is huge Are you a rich girl or something? Don't be silly.
I'm just an ordinary high-schooler.
This doesn't seem very "ordinary" to me.
Hey, where are your parents? Lucky for us They just happen to be late tonight.
Huh?! Y-You mean it's just you and m?! Yukine! Shh! Welcome home, Hiyori.
M-Mrs.
Sasaki.
I'm back I've prepared the bath.
Feel free to use it if you'd like! Whoa! Awesome! Feel free to use this room, Yukine.
Huh? Are you sure? Isn't this your room? No, it's my brother's.
Brother? He's a lot older than me.
But he doesn't stay here now, so it'll be okay.
Huh.
I didn't know you had a big brother.
My room's right next door, so let me know if you need anything.
Well, see you in a bit! Yeah.
Hiyori's sure got it lucky Precisely as I planned! It looks like nobody's gonna notice! Not our housekeeper or my parents! Oh! Welcome - We're home! - We bought some cakes, Hiyori! Mind if I have an after-work drink, Honey? Oh, you're incorrigible! Now this is what life's all about! - Now for some snacks - Wait, Dear.
Have you washed your? Dear! You know better than to pilfer food like that! Oh, I couldn't help myself Your mom's pretty sharp.
What are you doing here?! Gimme a break.
What's the harm if they don't notice me either? It ruins the whole point of me looking after Yukine! Hiyori.
How's he taking this? He's delighted, of course.
Now he doesn't have to sleep in any ol' shrine like you do.
Unlike this house, shrine grounds and buildings are sacred territory.
They keep us safe from Phantom attacks.
Even so The night is the time of devilry, when the Phantoms that lurk in the darkness come out.
I doubt he'll be able to handle it.
Huh? Yukine, you see is afraid of the dark.
It's been like, so long since I've had a warm bath I wonder what he'll do if I don't go back to him.
Yuki Will he use that girl or something? If so, then what'll happen to me? Huh? Why does this smell seem familiar? Wait, don't tell me! Hiyo! Hiyo! Hiyo! Hiyori just took a bath in this same water?! Oh! Here's where I left it! Hey, Hiyori! It's your turn to use the bath! Gotta build strong quads if you hope to Yukine? Sorry to wake you.
Not at all.
What's the matter? Your dad turned off the lights in my room just now.
I'm, like, not comfortable in the dark, so Ah.
I see.
- Want to sleep with me, then? - Huh?! It's okay with me.
Come in! N-N-No, I can't! Hurry up, now.
It's getting cold.
B-B-But! Wha?! It's been a long time since I've slept with someone! Oh Yukine You smell nice, too.
I like this smell, actually.
It feels nice being next to you.
Yukine? W-What are you doing here?! Don't give me that, you little perv! What were you about to do?! It's not like that! H-Hiyori invited me into her bed! You ain't ready for girls yet.
Focus on this dreamboat for now.
You're grossin' me out, you jersey creep.
Wha?! You got one too, you know! A Regalia girl who's like me! It's not like you need me.
Gonna be another stormy night.
Distance to downtown: 0.
9.
0.
7.
Incoming at 6:00! Let's go.
"Noragami" Thanks for coming along with me! Mm.
Nothin' else to do anyways.
Do you want those? Uhh, no It is going to get colder out.
- Let's see how much I have - No! It's okay! I don't need anything! No, no, let me help you out! Really, I'm okay! I mean, no one can see me anyways, so I can always borrow stuff if I really need to! Huh? See? Y-You know better than that, Yukine! That's no different from stealing! Huh? I said I'm just borrowing it.
- I'll give it right back - It's still wrong.
Give it here.
If you ever want something, just tell me.
Okay? Yukine? Hey.
Fun Friend Park Yato?! What are you doing?! Taking a break 'cause I don't feel so good! You are looking after him, I hope.
Seems like he's up to no good again.
How did you know that? I keep telling you.
Master and Regalia share mind and body.
I get stung every time Yukine gives in to temptation! That's how things work for Regalias and their masters.
Then, does that mean Yukine got stung too when you swiped some of my father's drinks? Nope.
The pain from deranged thoughts only goes in one direction: from Regalia to Master.
Regalias used to be people.
And people sin.
Resentment, fear, envy, desperation, sadness, greed Super-Bargain!! Used Games These and countless other things give rise to temptation.
The sin of acting on it turns to pain, which is how we learn via Regalias what is right and wrong.
Listen, Hiyori.
You seem to have the wrong idea, so let me set things straight.
People decide what's right and wrong, but those things don't apply to gods.
In other words gods can do anything they want.
Including hurting someone or taking their life.
Huh? Someday, I'll give Yukine his punishment too.
Divine punishment.
Yato He once killed a Regalia.
He kills people too.
I-I'm going to look for Yukine now! Man.
Talk about forgetting something important.
I wonder if Hiyori's still mad at me Crap, it's this late already! Damn! Somewhere Somewhere not dark! I'm scared It's dark.
I'm scared Mommy Please hurry You're looking at me? Crap! I knew it! Everyone else ignores me for some reason! All these eyeball thingies try to talk to me instead, but they're so scary! She's I'm waiting for my mommy's car.
"On the 23rd, a young girl was killed here in a hit-and-run" She comes to pick me up after my tutoring is over.
Oh Hey, will you stay with me until 6 o'clock? Until my mommy comes! Sure.
Yukine Sorry.
My mom's a little late.
Your family must be worried about you too.
My family? I don't really have one When my mommy gets here, you should get in the car too, okay? She'll be here soon, okay? I don't think she's coming.
Hey! Hold on! Yukine! - Here you are! - Don't go that way! Huh?! How terrible Poor little girl Your mommy is here though For reals? Come this way Come here Yukine! That thing Yato taught you! I-I make my hand into a halberd Damn! and draw a line! I'm sorry.
I shouldn't have said that earlier It's okay now.
They can't cross that line.
Smells nice Smells nice Smells nice Smells nice Smells nice You really smell nice.
- Smells nice - Come You smell nice Let me smell more Yukine! Give me more please More Boy Mommy Yato! You okay, Yukine?! The Phantom A girl went into it - Boy! - You have to help her! Please! All right.
Come, Sekki! "Yuki" You who would desecrate this land of the rising sun! With my advent, I, the Yato god lay waste with the Sekki and expel thy vast defilement! H-Hey! S! Stop! Rend! What are you?! You're supposed to save her! It's too late for her! She's been completely possessed! - What are you talking about?! - Killing her's our only choice now! Yukine A soul that's been corrupted and consumed by a Phantom will experience nothing but a living Hell of utter damnation! Which is why you need to free her! Yukine! Rend! We've received word from Kuraha, who is presently patrolling the city.
He states he saw Yato, slaying a Phantom.
He appears to have obtained a new Regalia as well.
I see.
No matter what happens, I promise that I'll call your name Ah You have a jagged-edged heart You hurt everything that you touch and you glare at everything in the world That look in your eyes says, "Here I am!" Someone laughed and that's why you put up that border line In which case, I'll hold your hand and take you with me If you can't say it, just hold my hand tightly and don't let go I want you to know you're not alone anymore "Operative" Did you have a nice bath, Yukine? Yeah.
Oh, I used some shampoo.
The rose-scented kind or whatever.
I assume it's yours? - It's my father's hair-growth shampoo.
- It's that old guy's?! On the next Noragami: "Scary Person.
