The July issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Magazine is unveiling the title, premiere timeframe, and a new teaser visual of the second Noragami television anime season on June 6. Noragami Aragoto will premiere this fall. The cast will appear at a Noragami Aragoto event in Tokyo on August 8.
The new season will adapt the manga's popular Bishamon arc and 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 published the fourth manga volume in North America in April.
