Let’s talk about Noragami Season 3. The popular action/drama manga “Noragami” was written by a female team under the pen name Adachitoka. “Noragami,” which was first released in 2011 by manga publisher Kodonsha (via Anime News Network), swiftly rose to prominence as one of Japan’s most well-liked series.
Critics gave “Noragami” mostly favorable reviews for both of its seasons, and the show was able to win over a devoted following throughout its existence. But even six years after “Noragami: Aragoto” ended, fans are still clamouring for more. The program has been on pause for a while, even though it hasn’t been officially cancelled, and little is known about its premiere date, cast, or premise. There is still a tonne of additional source material that the program might use. Here is what we do currently know in light of that.
Here’s all we know about Noragami Season 3 so far!
Noragami Season 3 Release Date
Production company Bones, director Kotaro Tamura, and Toshihiro Kawamoto created the character designs for the Noragami television series. On November 10, 2013, the first episode of the series was shown at Anime Festival Asia before it debuted on television. The anime ran for 12 episodes and debuted on Tokyo MX on January 5, 2014, followed by MBS, BS11, and TVA.
In addition to the television show, two more episodes were made available on DVDs that came in limited editions with the 10th and 11th manga volumes, which were released on February 17 and July 17, respectively. “Goya no Machiawase,” a song by Hello Sleepwalkers, serves as the film’s opening theme. Tia sings “Heart Realize,” the game’s closing theme song, which was composed by Supercell.
Noragami Aragoto’s second season aired for 13 episodes between October 2 and December 25, 2015. The Oral Cigarettes’ “Kyran Hey Kids!!” serves as the show’s opening theme, while Nirvana serves as the show’s closing tune.
Without some form of announcement or teaser, it would be hard to tell how far away from a release date we are for Noragami Season 3, assuming BONES even intends to make it. Fortunately, we do know that the Noragami manga advances far more quickly than its animated counterpart, which means BONES will have plenty of source material to pull from if they ever decide to move on with the series. Fans will have to live off of such manga until then because that is the only way they will soon get access to the rest of the plot.
Noragami Season 3 Cast
Fans of “Noragami” know what to expect from the voice cast if a third season is ever given to the series. Hiroshi Kamiya is still scheduled to play Yato in the show’s third season, barring a significant development that affects the cast (via Myanimelist). Yato’s friends Hiyori and Yukine will also continue to be portrayed by actors Maaya Uchida and Yuki Kaji, respectively.
If “Noragami” Season 3 ever happens, the primary three, which in the English dub is played by actors like Jason Liebrecht, Bryn Appril, and Micha Solusod, will probably also not change. Unfortunately, the publishing date for the English translation relative to the original is uncertain.
English fans may have to wait longer than everyone else for season 3 because episodes of English dubs are typically released weeks after their original counterparts.
Noragami Season 3 Plot
Up until the time that she was injured in a bus accident while attempting to save a stranger, Hiyori Iki was an ordinary middle school student. Her soul begins to often leave her body as a result of this occurrence, and she learns that there are two parallel worlds: the Near Shore, which is home to animals and ordinary humans, and the Far Shore, which is where demons and humans souls dwell. She connects with Yato—a bizarre, unnamed god without a shrine—through her spirit.
Yato is motivated to gain notoriety by granting any requests for 5 yen, including Hiyori’s request to get her body fixed. Along with Yukine and Yato’s Regalia, a weapon made from the spirit of a deceased person and named by the deity in question, the group engages in several adventures while battling issues related to their friendship, identities, and pasts.
Season 2 needs in a surprisingly refreshing fashion
Hiyori visits a ski resort with her parents where she meets Yato, Yukine, Kofuku, Daikoku, Tenjin, Kazuma, and Bishamon. An unknown guy strikes Yato but panics when Yato doesn’t perish. He attempts a variety of methods, such as poison, arrows, fire, a rifle, and others, to kill Yato. As he searches for the killer, Yato names a number of people, including Kazuma, Bishamon, Tenjin, and others, and confesses to all of his wrongdoings.
Yato is abducted and dropped down a cliff into the ocean by the stranger. Naturally, Yato lives, and the man says that he was using this as research for his mystery books since he was not realistic. To everyone’s surprise, the guy decides to trust Yato when he admits that he is a deity.
Hiyori is horrified when Yato extends an invitation to Capypa Land because it is where she was forced to kiss Yato. As Bishamon and Kazuma search for Ebisu in Capypa Land, Kofuku and Daikoku also show up since Kofuku has asked Daikoku on their first date in 20 years. Finally unwinding, Bishamon relishes her time with Kazuma. Yato observes Hiyori’s melancholy as they watch the procession and want to escape.
Hiyori phones him back and says she wants to continue being together. When Kofuku triggers a Vent, the Capypers are revealed to be aged men in costumes. Yato is devastated by this since he believed they were genuine. Hiyori consoles him and tells Yukine that she wants Yato to keep his aspirations alive.
