2 DVDs to ship with 15th, 16th volumes of manga

Retailer HMV revealed on Twitter on Friday that Adachitoka's Noragami manga will get two anime DVDs that will ship with limited editions of the 15th and 16th volumes of the manga.

According to HMV, the limited edition version of the 15th volume will ship in Japan in November, and will retail for 3,780 yen (about US$32) including tax.

HMV notes that the anime being bundled with the 15th volume will adapt the "Nijikan no Teikei ni Sō koto" (Following A Stereotypical Two Hours) story from the first volume of the Noragami Shūishū spinoff manga that Kodansha shipped in November 2013.

The retailer notes that the limited edition of the 16th volume will ship in March 2016, and will retail for the same price as the 15th volume. The anime DVD will adapt the manga's 41st chapter from volume 11 where the main characters go to "Capyperland."

The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime last year. Funimation streamed the first season as it aired, and the company 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 anime is also inspiring a second season that will adapt the manga's Bishamon arc.

The limited editions of the 10th and 11th volumes of the manga also each bundled an anime DVD when they shipped in February 2014 and July 2014, respectively.

Adachitoka launched the manga in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and Kodansha published the 13th compiled volume on Friday.
