"People's wishes are what let gods exist. Distinguished gods enjoy constant worship and wishes. Not for obscure gods. They can't even remain in people's memories. So what do you do to keep from being forgotten? You grant any wish you get... no matter whose it is." (Noragami Ep. 4)

Yato's past self is so far from the jersey-wearing goofball most people are more familiar with. This part of his existence is so fascinating to me, and I look forward to more being revealed from his time as a manslayer / god of calamity. Even the manga hasn't told enough!
