After more than ten years, Noragami is almost finished

This year will be thirteen years since the beginning of the serialization of the manga written and illustrated by Adachitoka, Noragami. However, when the twenty-sixth compilation volume was released in Japan, it too it was announced that the work will end with the next volumescheduled for sometime this year if you look at the release schedule.

But that is not it, it must be noted that the conclusion is scheduled for the next volume, which means that work will probably end a few weeks before that release (since the chapters are published first and then the compiled book). At the end, The hope of fans to see the third season of the Noragami anime adaptation could be buried when the original work is finished (mainly because an anime adaptation is done in order to promote the sales of the original work).


Adachitoka he started publishing the manga in the magazine Monthly Shōnen Magazine from the publisher kodansha in December 2010. The original manga went through various problems, such as a one-year break in serialization and no third season, which had a negative impact on sales.

The work inspired a twelve-episode anime adaptation by the studios Bonesled Kotarō Tamura and scripts written by Taku Iwasakipremiered in January 2014. The second season of thirteen episodes premiered in October 2015. It is worth mentioning that the adaptation took some creative liberties by changing some events and their sequence.

Summary of Noragami

As a minor unknown deity, Yato only takes odd jobs for five yen, with the goal of amassing a large enough fortune to build a shrine in his honor. But apart from the darkness, he has another problem, his “Shinki” or comrade-in-arms has decided to quit, tired of being with a homeless god. Without a weapon, Yato takes on more jobs in hopes of finding a new partner soon.

After waking up, Hiyori discovers that the incident was caused by her soul leaving her body, so Yato promises to restore her to normal, for five yen, of course. But for this he needs a new Shinki, and that’s when he meets a rebellious spirit named Yukine.
