Noragami Manga Resumes in June After Year-Long Hiatus

Manga went into extended hiatus last year due to Adachitoka member recovering from illness

Kodansha announced on Friday that Adachitoka will resume their Noragami: Stray God manga in the magazine's July issue on June 6. The manga went on an extended hiatus in May 2017 so that one of the members of Adachitoka could recuperate from an illness. The manga will be featured on the cover of the July issue.

While the manga's hiatus began in May 2017, the manga's 75th chapter also didn't appear as planned in April 2017. At the time the editorial staff said the unexpected break in that issue was due to "circumstances."

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in English as well as its Noragami: Stray Stories spinoff manga. The company describes the original manga:

Yato is a homeless god.​ He doesn't even have a shrine,​ not to mention worshippers! So to achieve his ambitious goals,​ he's set up a service to help those in need (for a small fee), hoping he'll eventually raise enough money to build himself the lavish temple of his dreams.​ Of course,​ he can't afford to be picky,​ so Yato accepts all kinds of jobs,​ from finding lost kittens to helping a student overcome bullies at school.​

Adachitoka launched the manga in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2010, and Kodansha published the manga's 18th compiled book volume in February 2017. Kodansha Comics released the manga's 18th volume last June.

The manga inspired a 12-episode television anime series that premiered in January 2014. Funimation streamed the series as it aired and released it on home video. The anime's second season, titled Noragami Aragoto, premiered in October 2015, and Funimation also streamed that series as it aired and released it on home video. The series also inspired two stage plays: the first in January 2016, and the second in February 2017.
