Yatoite's World: Noragami: Yato and Bishamon's Relationship
Noragami - Bishamon and Kazuma / Ao No Exorcist - Shura and Yukio wait. Hiyori is praying for a god to help everyone, Yato lost the game of monopoly. But it's also good that Bishamon at least acknowledges Kazuma's feelings? Humans have a very different form of relationships than Gods, one that they probably understand, . If she doesn't get help soon, she is going to die. And then Kazuma so kindly explains to us when Yato and Yukine have gone to kill Bishamon because they think that she's kidnapped Hiyori.
All theories are made based on manga-current events, and not from the anime. Any anime-only events will be disregarded in my theories.
This chapter has a lot to absorb, and not just event-wise. Anyway, onto my thoughts! Though I think he was meaning more her title than personally, if that makes sense. Kazuma tried so hard to find a suitable nickname, give that boy a medal. Humans have a very different form of relationships than Gods, one that they probably understand, but cannot experience themselves.
And no, not in a romantic way. And Bishamon feels similarly for Kazuma, as well. She never wants to lose him—which further propelled her actions of wanting to keep him far away from the danger that Father possesses.
She even adds on, ordering Kuraha to take care of him. Even being tossed away by the person he loves most, he is still worried for her and tells her to escape. I think this speaks volumes—as he may have come to the realization that she is only trying to protect him. Moving on, we see Yato heading off to end the conflict between Bishamon and Father, leaving Take to try and explain that Bishamon is simply trying to rid the heavens of the sorcerer.
Who is very much still alive. I really, really hope that Take is able to take a stand. Like Yato said, taking out just a few would barely register overall. And having a close tie to the near shore like Yato does in Hiyori influences that. The current event would easily be the triggering situation to bring about his full power with the use of his shinki.
Gods are beholden or indebted to their shinki. This is of course, probably what she wants. However, after learning Kuguha was the one behind spreading blight amongst her Shinki and herself in order to kill her and resurrect her and then overthrow her while killing off all of her Shinki whom he deemed useless, Bishamonten helps to save her remaining Shinki and releases Kazuma from exile, desiring instead for him to be her guidepost and mending their relationship.
However, both Kazuma and Yato still have a friendly relationship. Kazuma teaches Yukine and Yato often comes over to Bishamonten's house to watch the two practice. Even when Kazuma is deemed an enemy by Yukine, Yato defends him, saying that just as much as Kazuma saw Yato as a benefactor, Yato saw Kazuma as a benefactor.

Hiyori Iki Edit Kazuma trusted Hiyori enough to request that she look after Yato, as he did not want to lose his benefactor. Later, Hiyori would recognize him as one of the few Shinki willing to help Yato with his Purification Ceremony.
She trusted him enough to call on him on Yato's behalf in the latter time of dire need. He seems to care for her as shown when her soul and he are kidnapped by Kuguha and locked away, he worries about her health since if her soul stays out too long she will die.
Welcome to Takamagahara!
The two have less interaction afterwards but seem to view each other as friends. When Yukine declared Kazuma an enemy, Hiyori was saddened to see their relationship turn sour and wanted the two to make up.
Yukine Edit Kazuma helped with Yukine's ablution and Yukine has been grateful since. He felt bad about exposing Kazuma's helping to save Yato, causing Yato to be blighted due to Yukine's negative feelings. After Yato and Bishamonten let go of their grudges towards each other, starting in chapter 27 Yukine asks Kazuma to become his teacher.
Kazuma accepts as the two are both blessed shinki and while he does tease Yukine, Yukine respects him as a teacher and his superior while Kazuma sees him as a worthy ally and friend. However, their relationship starts to turn sour when Yato's father threatens the heavens and after he strikes Tsuguha causing her to regain her memories and fall ill.
Kazuma implicitly threatens Yukine to tell him who the sorcerer is but Yukine refuses since Yato will die if the sorcerer does. While Kazuma initially respects this, after Tsuguha turns into an ayakashi, Kazuma forcefully uses Resound on Yukine to tell him where the sorcerer is, causing Yukine to dub him an enemy.
Kazuma even considered doing it a second time in chapter 57 to Kugahathough Tsuyu prevented it. In chapter 59, when he was frantically looking for Bishamonten, Kazuma asked if they were willing to tell him who the sorcerer is and if not to stay out of his way.
At one point, and without Vaisravana's knowledgehe requested that Yato dispose of all of his brethren, as they were corrupt and infecting their master with Blight. Heeding his request, Yato slaughtered all of the Shinki, with the exception of Kazuma.
This left Kazuma as the last survivor of the "Ma Clan". This would also spawn the lifelong hatred Vaisravana would posses for Yato. In his debut, Kazuma is seen speaking to Vaisravana about Yato.
Later, he is seen in his Shinki form, tracking Yato and Yukine and navigating for Vaisravana. When Vaisravana catches up to Yato and Yukine in the forest, Kazuma reverts back to his human form, tending to the injured Kuraha, who was harmed by Yukine. He then stops Vaisravana from pursuing Yato, after Kofuku had opened the Vent with Daikokutelling her it was too dangerous, and that while she might want to give chase to Yato, he would not allow her to risk harm to her Shinki further.
Vaisravana, seeing reason, departed. Before Kazuma fled, he bowed to Yato, then disappeared. He spoke with her, hiding her from Vaisravana and Kuraha, and voiced his concerns on Yato's deteriorating condition. He mentioned that Yukine would soon have to be dealt with, for his crimes against his master, and asked Hiyori to look after Yato.
With her agreement, he departed, but not without warning that, if Yato's Blight spread further, he would die.

Hiyori arrived at Vaisravana's temple, in search of Kazuma to help with Yato's Purification Ceremony. He agreed to assist, arriving with her at Kofuku's shop. He, alongside Mayu and Daikoku, began the ceremony. However, halfway through it, as Yato's condition worsened and Yukine began to become more and more corrupt, he urged Yato to break his contract with Yukine, and for Daikoku to kill the Shinki. However, the ceremony was a success, and Kazuma departed soon after.
When Vaisravana 's own Blight began to spread, due to her neglect of her Shinki, he demanded that all of her Shinki be searched for signs of corruption. Despite this, no signs of such symptoms were discovered, and he later apologized to Kugaha for causing such a disturbance. Later, Yukine arrived at Vaisravana's temple, in search of Suzuha. When Vaisravana spotted him, they soon got into a heated confrontation. Kazuma defended Yukineand when Vaisravana asked him if the rumors of his involvement in Yato's Purification Ceremony were true, he admitted that they were.
Vaisravana, distraught, asked why he had betrayed her for their enemy, to which Kazuma countered that Yato was their "benefactor". Vaisravana attempted to shoot Yukine, but the latter was defended by Kazuma, who created a Boundary between them and his master. Vaisravana nearly excommunicated Kazuma; however, she hesitated, and then exiled him. After being exiled, Kazuma goes to Kofuku's house because it is the only place he knows where to stay. Afterwards, while Kuguha tries to kidnap Hiyori Kazuma intervenes.
He tries to use bind on Kugaha but it is ineffective.
