The official website for the Noragami television anime began streaming an "ultra teaser comics" video on Saturday to celebrate the anime's second season. The video uses images from Adachitoka's manga to tease the popular Bishamon arc that the second anime season will adapt.
Japan's BS Fuji television network is currently re-airing the anime's first season. The first season't Blu-ray Disc box will ship in Japan on September 25.
Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine announced in March that a second season had 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

- Animation Production: BONES
- Hiroshi Kamiya as Yato
- Maaya Uchida as Hiyori Iki
- Yuuki Kaji as Yukine

- Aki Toyosaki as Kofuku
- Daisuke Ono as Daikoku
- Toru Ohkawa as Tenjin
- Kazuhiko Inoue as Kuraha
- Asami Imai as Mayu

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 released the fourth manga volume in North America in April.
