Funimation describes the story:
Yato is back! This minor god makes a major return in season 2 of Noragami Aragoto. And this time, an enemy is hot on his heels. Bishamon, the god of combat has an army of shinki and a death wish for Yato due to their dark past. When Yukine befriends one of Bishamon's shinki, it sets in motion a series of events that re-ignites Bishamon's beef with Yato and forces him to question his relationship with Hiyori. Will the two gods come to an understanding, or will this feud end in a fight?
Kotaro Tamura (Wolf Children assistant director) is once again directing the anime in the studio BONES. Deko Akao (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Mysterious Girlfriend X) is also returning to provide the series composition.
