Noragami (2014) s01e07 Episode Script

Uncertainty and Destiny

1 He was ailing badly.
I shouldn't have let him go Kazuma.
At your service.
Come here.
Three days have passed since the Vent was opened.
Erecting a barrier with the help of affiliated and unaffiliated shrines has succeeded in halting its growth.
However, the Phantoms that have already poured out need to be exterminated.
Have you located Yato? Lady Bishamon.
Yes? We're all alone now.
If you continue to leave your hair dripping wet like this, you will catch a cold.
I've only one question.
What kind of battle was that?! You acted on a personal grudge, with no thought for Kuraha or the others! You lack a master's sense of responsibility, Veena! Enough.
The Vent is our priority right now.
I'm the reason this happened in the first place.
Even I realize I'm duty-bound to eliminate them now.
Now that is the Lady Bishamon I know.
Kuraha! Kinuha! Yugiha! Akiha! Karuha! Kazuha! Tsuguha! Let's go! "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 Are you awake, Yukine? I brought you breakfast.
Thanks, Hiyori.
Wh-Wh-What are you doing here, Yato?! Where's Yukine?! Oh.
He ran away from home.
He's probably over at ol' Tenjin's place.
He ran away?! And you didn't stop him?! Why would I? I only need him around when it's time to use him.
Chapter 7 I Uncertainty and Destiny Why, hello, Hiyori.
Lord Tenjin! Whatever is the matter? Study troubles? I'm sorry.
Is Yukine here? Yes, he came by just this morning, actually.
I'd like to work for you instead.
Can I? It looks like he lasted a month.
How long did you stay with Lord Yato, Mayu? - Three months.
- Wow, you really hung in there! - I don't think I could do it.
- I definitely couldn't.
That's enough.
You haven't been with Yato for very long yet.
What brought this on? I can't stand the guy.
He doesn't have a shrine, he's broke, he's obnoxious, he has a messed-up past Besides, he already has another Regalia like me.
So I figure I shouldn't tough it out if I don't have to.
I'm delighted that you would ask for my help, but I'm afraid I can't employ you right now.
For if I were to give you a name now you would end up a Nora.
Nora Umm What's a "Nora"? I originally assumed it was a name Noras are a disgrace.
A private part of a god's life, if you will.
Private parts.
Get it? Huh? My lord.
Please choose your words carefully.
It's only a figure of speech, Tsuyu! It's not sexual harassment, I promise! A Regalia with many owners is akin to a stray cat and is commonly referred to as a "Nora.
" But those who wish to go by many names are all the more likely to betray their masters.
As such, they're also considered detestable.
Tell me, what would you think if I offered to be your godparent and give you a different name, Hiyori? Huh? What would be a good name? Yumi? Tomo? Yuko? Th-That seems a little Right? It's discourteous to your mother and father, yes? Uh-huh People instinctually dislike it.
That's why Noras are regarded with hate.
Hate Normally, a Regalia has one name and serves one master.
It is common knowledge that to serve a new master, one must first be "unnamed" by the previous master.
Just as Mayu was.
Then why do Noras exist? In general they're used to perform jobs you wouldn't give to your own Regalias.
S-Say, Lord Tenjin.
Would you happen to know a girl Nora about the same age as Yukine? I'm sorry.
Please don't ask any more.
The very mention of them sends shivers down our spines.
Huh? You certainly speak easily of them, my lord.
Don't worry.
I've never made use of them, nor do I ever intend to.
I don't wish to have any ties with such wretched scoundrels.
You can always use me, you know Nora.
I've been watching you all this time, yet you never call for me anymore.
I've been so lonely.
That boy is too unstable.
You should just get rid of him.
Use me.
I can be more helpful to you than him.
I can't find Yukine anywhere This smell It isn't Yato's Bishamon?! So you can see us.
Y-You're Bishamon's! You're that living spirit from before.
A half-Phantom, in other words.
I see Yato hasn't a single proper acquaintance.
He's going to kill me! Restraint.
I can't move! Umbra.
P-Please help me, gods! I'm so dead! Kazuma.
Have you located the next Phantom? No.
I don't smell any more Phantoms here, milady.
Kuraha is correct.
We've nearly cleaned out this entire area.
All that remains is the south-southeast area now.
Wait They don't see me? It's a bit soon, but let's try widening the area.
I'll catch up with you once I've conducted another search just to be sure.
All right.
Sorry, Kuraha.
I know your wounds haven't yet healed.
This is nothing at all.
I leave her in your hands, Kuraha.
Right! They're different from Lord Tenjin and Ms.
Kofuku It's like they're one, big team.
I didn't know they could relate this way too I wouldn't meddle too much if I were you, Hiyori Iki.
H-How do you know my name?! Huh? I can move I have the ability to grasp everything around me, which also means I can influence what's around me, as I just did.
Student ID Hiyori Iki My wallet! Wh-When did you?! Should you cross paths with Veena, Bishamon, again, keep your head in the sand if you value your life.
Why did you help me? I thought you hated Yato! Make no mistake, he is our enemy.
However I also owe a great deal to Yato.
Speaking of which, is Yato well? Huh? He was blighted, and appeared to be in dire straits.
It's that bad?! His blight didn't come from the outside.
It's most likely from the inside.
Yato's Regalia The "Sekki," yes? It should be disposed of at once.
Disposed of?! Th-There's nothing to worry about! Yukine's a good kid, and he used to be human! Besides, isn't killing a Regalia the same as killing a person?! Yatty killed a Regalia a long time ago.
He kills people too.
Something must be done before it's too late.
A Regalia's repeated misdeeds will cause its master to fall ill.
If left untouched, the pain will accumulate and the blight will spread throughout the body, growing ever worse.
Honestly, now.
Why is Yato even using a Regalia like that? Huh? You're his companion.
Has he not mentioned anything to you? N-No I realize how unusual this request is but please help Yato.
I owe him dearly.
I don't want to lose him.
A-All right.
If this delinquent known as Yukine isn't dealt with soon Damn! That slanty-eyebrowed geezer! Got rejected, did ya? Shut up! What do you want?! We got a job, Yukine.
Huh? "Noragami" Yato Gotta skim the soup.
You call this a job? You should give up being a god! Or at least go to a temp agency! Quiet, you dependent! This is a respectable job from a respectable client! The shop owner would have a rough time without late-night help like us! Oww! Hot! Hot! Man, this sucks.
Why do I gotta put up with this crap? Oh, you're actually here.
Daikoku? Yatty! Kofuku! Get out, god of poverty! How dare you treat milady like that! I'm shelling out justice! You scam artists run around tricking people with that fake name of hers! It's just a trade name.
Plenty of places do that! Ouch! Rub my ouchie, Hiyorin! A-Are you all right? Hiyori? Hello.
I had Hiyorin guide us here! Guide? But how'd you find me? Oh, actually, it's your sm She won't unzip her lips.
You sound like a criminal, putting it that way.
So, what do you want? We got a job that's not our style, so we were gonna pass it on to you.
You got nothing better to do, right? I guess I'm interested.
Yato Is it me, or do you look really pale? Oh, man.
Are you not eating again? Yukine What did you do?! Huh? You don't seriously think I stole money, do you? Really? Man, even a god's given up on me I should've stayed dead after all.
Disaster Relief Charity Yukine You did steal money? Yatty Yato I accept the job.
Tend to the shop.
Huh? Wait! Tend to?! That'll be 582 yen! Thanks fer your business! "Eliminate the Phantom that has appeared above Kamiido.
" That's a simple enough job.
I'm guessing branch shrines are getting lots of these jobs ever since the Vent was opened.
About Yukine I'll find him.
Can't slay a Phantom without a Regalia, after all.
That's why having a Regalia handy is important.
Th-That may be true, but that's not really why - How do I put this - I know.
It's time to resolve this once and for all.
It should be disposed of at once.
Hiyori! What are you?! - Yato! - Y-Yes?! "Having a Regalia handy" - They're not tools! - Huh? Yukine is Yukine! You need to talk to him and treat him like an actual person, not a Regalia! Please! Hiyori You really have pretty eyes.
They're like the fruit of hawthorn plants, swaying in the breeze But not even birds will eat them.
They're not sweet, bitter, or even poisonous, yet they provide nothing.
They're completely useless, empty fruit No one bothers to pick them, so they're left all alone to wilt, wither, and die.
Poor little boy.
Yukine! What do you think you're doing, Nora? You should use me more, Yato.
Like you used to.
I can kill anything that gets in your way, nice and neat.
Yato Sekki! Yukine.
Don't listen to anything Nora says! Your focus needs to be on that! A Phantom?! Wait! Yato! 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! Rend! He can't cut through it?! Man, talk about pathetic He's turned dull on me! Even after all the stinging he's given me Smells nice Yato! Run! Smells nice Purification water Nora! Just leave already! He might be a lousy little punk but I found and named him! I'm going to reforge the Sekki! Rend! Yato He's rejected you.
He's unworthy of his scarlet-colored reputation of many years.
Let's go.
If this delinquent known as Yukine isn't dealt with soon Yato will die.
Yato will die 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 - Sorry I slugged you earlier, Yato.
- No, I should apologize.
To show there's no hard feelings.
- Take it.
- Daikoku On the next Noragami: "Over the Line.
" Wait, this is a demand for compensation! My lady got a lump on her head because of you! Next Episode I Over the Line
