Kamisama Hajimemashita Ep 5: Narukami-hime VS Nanami


My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    Ahh I was quite ambivalent about this ep too. I do like that they animated this arc, but it saddens me that 4 manga chapters become so rushed like this. Honestly, I do think they could make this without rushing in one episode. How? They just have to ditch the ED slides for once dangit! I mean, we always see those pics of Mizuki, Kurama, and Tomoe in other eps anyway! Why not end it like Jinrui or other animes? Well, I do understand that that kind of sequence would seem like the end of the cour, but really, if they’re so pressed in time, they could just ditch the slides once and for all! >..< Hm If they skip things now…I wonder if we get the aquarium chap in ep 7…and the sea next…They better make a good ending…or I might get possessed and rant/spam on mikagesha's(KH) twitter page !
    P.S.Thanks for the review!! I do have feeels for the end of the ep!! But yeah, it could have been great.

      Even more so when they proven (last week) that if they do it right, they can make it flow smoothly. All these small non-canon extras, and like you pointed out- keeping the ED sequence bought up so much time that could’ve been used better. It completely threw off the pace! It makes me cringe whenever there’s a quick cut to a scene because most of the time, it’s too sharp.

      ;A; Dangit, I’d love to see the Aquarium chapter animated too as well as Himemiko’s invitation to moon-gaze ;A; gahh such a shame they have to cut out so much. The sea one is probably going to be really soon, maybe in two or three weeks. O____o; I’m still wondering if they are actually going to animate the Tengu Mountain Src at all. The OP implies it but I’ve been trolled by OPs before so I can’t take it for granted.
