Noragami Anime Season 2's Bishamon Story, Visual Unveiled
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the Noragami television anime unveiled a new key visual for the second season on Monday. The season will adapt the manga's popular Bishamon arc.
The cast will appear at all-night marathons of the first season on April 18 in Tokyo's Shinjuku Picadilly theater and on April 19 at Osaka's Nanba Parks Cinema theater. The Animate Ikebukuro store will also host an special exhibition from April 14 to April 16. Fans can call a toll-free number to "talk" with Hiroshi Kamiya; a similar hotline received several million calls in 2013.
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
- Kazuhiko Inoue as Kuraha
- 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 is publishing the fourth manga volume in North America in April.
