Noragami Manga Takes Unexpected 1-Month Break
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The May issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine revealed on Thursday that the 75th chapter of Adachitoka's Noragami: Stray God manga is not appearing in the issue due to "circumstances." The magazine's editorial staff apologized for the manga's sudden break.
Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in English as well as its Noragami: Stray Stories spinoff manga. The company describes the original manga:
Yato is a homeless god. He doesn't even have a shrine, not to mention worshippers! So to achieve his ambitious goals, he's set up a service to help those in need (for a small fee), hoping he'll eventually raise enough money to build himself the lavish temple of his dreams. Of course, he can't afford to be picky, so Yato accepts all kinds of jobs, from finding lost kittens to helping a student overcome bullies at school.
Adachitoka launched the manga in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2010, and Kodansha published the manga's 18th compiled book volume on February 17. Kodansha Comics released the manga's 17th volume in October.
The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in January 2014. Funimation streamed the series as it aired and released it on home video. The anime's second season, titled Noragami Aragoto, premiered in October 2015, and Funimation also streamed that series as it aired and released it on home video. The series also inspired two stage plays: the first in January 2016, and the second this past February.
