RAWR! BIRD!, A lot of Thoughts on Kazuma and Yato
She'll probably be like an older cousin who he goes to for advice and he'll probably be like an annoying for the current chapter in the manga I think Yato and Bishamon will turn into great friends. Hiyori can have Kazuma. Kazuma and Bishamon navigate a new relationship. Series of oneshots and drabbles. Kazuma/Bishamon. AU. Spoilers through chapter "The problem is that he's my shinki," Bishamon said. "I've always seen Fortunately for Bishamon, Kazuma didn't seem to remember the kiss.
This is really, really important: But he never significantly had this issue when forming a connection with Kazuma, because Kazuma knew before even meeting Yato. Kazuma saw Yato at his absolute worst and still chose to be his benefactor. Conversely, this particular moment in the manga is the moment Kazuma regrets more deeply than any other.
While he expresses endless gratitude to Yato for his actions on that day, Kazuma condemns himself in the same breath, feeling as if he is a betrayer and a monster for asking Yato to do what he did.

Yato knew from the start that Kazuma was doing what had to be done, and doing so out of love for his master. But the importance of having someone who will accept you at your worst, even if you cannot accept yourself at your worst, can not be understated.
Acceptance from others is a strong deciding factor in the mental health of children and young adultsand children who experience a sense of acceptance from their peers exhibit better emotional resonance, greater degrees of empathy, a stronger tendency toward generosity, and fewer difficulties establishing healthy and supportive relationships in adulthood.
Since Sakura died, at least as far as we readers have been shown, Yato had no one to validate his wishes to help people and to be kind; he had no one beyond his father and Hiiro, both of whom he no longer trusted, to tell him he was valuable and worth keeping in the world. The impact of this kind of utter isolation and lack of help is unspeakable.
As Yato struggled and fought against the abuse of his father, Kazuma was there with his hand outstretched to literally and emotionally pull Yato back onto his feet. When you are a survivor of child abuse, there is no one more important than staunch allies. At their first meeting, Yato was cold-eyed, distant, and working with Hiiro. Seriously though, that last one… Just food for thought: No matter how many shinki abandoned Yato, Kazuma never did.
Which makes all the stuff happening recently in the series that much worse, more on this in a bit! For centuries, he carried the weight of the truth and was ashamed by his own selfishness to the point he states numerous times throughout the series that he deserved to die. Just as Bishamon utilized her hate of Yato as motivation to overcome the loss of the -ma clan, Kazuma utilized his gratitude to Yato in the same way.
He was blighted and hungry and totally unmarketable. One the greatest protective factors against recurring abuse is social support. Tangible support is one the first and foremost requirements to helping abuse survivors make it on their own away from their abusers. Living on your own takes resources, and the significance and meaning of people who provide not only kindness but also actual things is immeasurable.
Yato would have fulfilled his request for the equivalent of five yen. Ha, probably less than five yen; we have to adjust for inflation. So Kazuma could easily have gotten a coin from Bishamon afterward and just handed that to Yato, paid in full, tada. Instead, he decides seemingly out of nowhere that he is going to owe Yato an all-encompassing debt for apparently the rest of his entire immortal life.
Yato initially had no attachment to Bishamon or to Kazuma.
In that light, buying his baubles and feeding him is really the least Kazuma could have done. So then, my very favorite thing about Kazuma: Then he kept the junk. The doujinshi of Bisha, sure, I can see why Kazuma would want to keep them. But the mix tape? Kazuma had zero use for these things and he kept them anyway. Like I mentioned in my other post about Yato, it is extremely common for abuse survivors to be stigmatizedeven by those close to them, due to frequent unemployment and difficulty managing finances.
Being stereotyped as lazy and good-for-nothing is horribly common, even when the people in question may work extremely hard for everything they have. Many characters in Noragami repeatedly put Yato down for his weird attempts to make money and call him a lazy freeloader—sometimes even when he is out working.
Far and away, of all the characters including Hiyori and YukineKazuma insults Yato the least and supports his attempts to market himself the most. This loops back into and compounds all the other forms of support Kazuma has been offering Yato for centuries.
Essentially, all of this is to say that Kazuma is doing right by Yato. On the list of things friends and family can do to aid survivors of abuseKazuma is ticking a huge number of boxes.
Side note on this point: In regard to insulting Yato or not doing sothere is one scene from the Kazuma chapter of Noragami: Shuuishuu which I think is worth talking: Even after being severely blighted, she refuses to back out.
This also shows that she believes in her own decision and doesn't allow her will to crumble.

Once she decides on a particular task, she forces herself past every limit to accomplish it. History Edit Years earlier, Bishamon had many Shinki. However, because of their numbers, she was unable to effectively watch over them, and they became corrupt.
Unbeknownst to her, one of her few pure Shinki, Kazuma, requested that Yato slaughter all of her corrupt subordinates. Yato, heeding this request, did so, and Bishamon vowed revenge against him. He is then forced to retreat with Yukine. She then searches for him, using Kazuma, and follows him to the forest, where he had hid.
Bishamon was about to give chase to Yato, when Kazuma tells her that, though she may be willing to pursue Yato no matter what the costs, he would not allow her to risk further harm to her Shinki. Bishamon retreats but not without warning.
She later visits Kofuku, asking about the latter's intervention in the battle. Kofuku tells Bishamon that, if something were to happen to Yato, she should be prepared for "a lot of Gloom". Bishamon is shocked by this and departs.
She is seen multiple times bathing, and later taking medicine given to her Kugaha, for her growing Blight. It is seen that Bishamon has a the habit of taking in lost souls, making them her Shinki.
This is important to me, Kazuma. I don't want to do anything you don't want to do.

He doesn't look at her. They aren't able to continue. Kazuma keeps stinging her. One moment, they're kissing, lying flush against each other as they're grinding against their bodies; the next, a harsh sting that makes Bishamon jerk up and Kazuma apologize. He doesn't sting her when she takes the lead, but when she rolls him onto his back, pulling off his clothes and rubbing her mouth against his body, Bishamon will remember that he is her shinki, she was the one who gave him his name, and the power imbalance will make her stop unexpectedly.
Bishamon regrettably pulls on her clothes. She flips open the comic to a two-page spread of herself being penetrated by a faceless man, her breasts bouncing and her face contorted in an exaggerated flush. It should be the other way around. I feel that I'm not worthy.
Absolute honesty was one of the rules they decided on when they embarked on this relationship, and as foolish as it sounds, she knows he's being completely honest. Bishamon smiles at him and fluffs his hair fondly. So I believe in this instance you are feeling just as guilty as I am. She sighs against his neck. Bishamon nestles against his neck. She remembers that first time he kissed her.
After her fight with Yato, Bishamon had stayed by Kazuma's bedside.
Welcome to Takamagahara!
She was restless and worried, and before long she was climbing into bed and falling asleep beside him. A few hours passed. There was a crick in her neck from sleeping in one position, and as she opened her eyes she saw Kazuma watching her quietly. He kissed her softly on the mouth.
