Kodansha Comics Licenses Noragami manga

Volume one slated for this fall in North America

North American manga publisher Kodansha Comics announced on Wednesday that it has licensed Adachitoka's action fantasy manga series Noragami as Noragami: Stray God. The company plans to release the first volume of the series this fall.

Kodansha Comics describes the story:

Yato is a stray god. He doesn't even have a shrine, not to mention worshipers! Hoping he'll eventually raise enough money to build himself the lavish temple of his dreams, Yato accepts all kinds of jobs. Of course, he can't afford to be picky; from finding lost kittens to helping a student overcome bullies, no job is too small for Yato, the god-for-hire! An eccentric story with a charming cast of characters!

Adachitoka launched the manga in the Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and it has since inspired an anime adaptation that is currently streaming on Funimation as it airs in Japan.
