The second season of Noragami is coming this fall as Noragami Aragoto and Avex Pictures has let loose with the first main anime promo for the series that shows off the look – and sound – of the show. The promo is fairly straightforward in reminding us of the cast and staff that are all returning for it as well as highlighting some of the upcoming home video releases in Japan. The show will be directed by Kotaro Tamura based on scripts by Deko Akao along with character designs by Toshihiro Kawamoto. BONES handled the animation production for it.
The season is set to work the Biashamon arc of the manga which focuses on the war god of the same name.
The series stars 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, Asami Imai as Mayu, Rie Kugimiya as Nora, Hisako Tojo as Aiha and Takanori Hoshino as Kugaha.
The first season of the series was picked up for North American release by FUNimation at the end of 2014 with plans for them to release it in the summer of 2015 in DVD/BD combo form.
Plot concept: 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.
