The May issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine is announcing on Monday that a second season of the Noragami television anime has been green-lit. The new season will reunite the staff and cast from the first season based on Adachitoka's manga:
- Director: Kotaro Tamura
- Series Composition: Deko Akao
- Character Design: Toshihiro Kawamoto
- Animation Production: BONES
- Hiroshi Kamiya as Yato
- Maaya Uchida as Hiyori Iki
- Yuuki Kaji as Yukine
- Miyuki Sawashiro as Bishamon
- Jun Fukuyama as Kazuma
- Aki Toyosaki as Kofuku
- Daisuke Ono as Daikoku
- Toru Ohkawa as Tenjin
- Asami Imai as Mayu
- Rie Kugimiya as Nora
Funimation streamed the first season as it aired in Japan last year, and describes the story:
Yato may just be a minor god now, but he's determined to make it big and he's got a plan. Unfortunately, things just don't seem to be going his way. He doesn't have a single shrine dedicated to him, his partner has just quit, and now he's got to find a new divine weapon. Just when things look bleak, he meets a girl named Hiyori and changes her life forever.
Funimation scheduled the first season's DVD and Blu-ray Disc release in North America for this summer. Kodansha Comics will publish the fourth manga volume in North America in April.
The magazine quotes the manga creators Adachitoka as saying that they did not believe the news of the second season when they first heard it. They added that they are very happy that the first season's staff and cast are returning.
