kofuku (noragami)

A plea

Remember how alone and sad Kofuku was before she met Daikoku?

Remember how Daikoku gave her the name Kofuku, which made her feel happy and loved? 

Remember how much they have gone through together and how they’ve supported each other over thousands of years?

Remember how their closeness inspired Bishamon and Kazuma to try and become more like them?

Please don’t take this away from us, Adachitoka. Please.

If two people share an umbrella, it is called the “Ai-Ai gasa”.Ai’ means ‘love’ and ‘gasa’ is the variation of the word ‘Kasa’ in Japanese with the meaning ‘Umbrella’. And literally “Ai-Ai gasa” means “Love-Love umbrella”. The Japanese youngsters use the symbol of an umbrella with the name of the boy and girl on its both sides as a symbol of love. It’s similar to the heart symbol representing love. Two people, especially a man and a woman, sharing an umbrella in rain is considered as a symbol of romance in Japan.

Leaving aside the meaning , I just find it so heartwarming the parallel between the two endings . As soon as yato loses the umbrella he falls into the despair and seems lost , only to run after the light that the shrine hiyori made him . And that just breaks me


AND CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS?

According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger. The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break. 

And our dear Adachitoka didn’t hesitate to bring it out again.

Anyways! Please enjoy the Yato Shrine, with accompanying gingerbread Yato, Hiyori, Yukine, Kofuku, and Yukipuff! Plus bonus 5 yen coin! Thanks fushi~
