On the strip wrap that comes with the latest volume 7 of manga "Noragami", it was announced that the manga will be adapted into a TV anime series. No other details have been disclosed yet.

The manga started serialization in "Gekkan Shounen Magazine" in December 2010, and volume 7 will go on sale on June 17th.

Alive: Saishuu Shinkateki Shounen, the previous work by Toka Adachi, who wrote Noragami, was once slated for TV anime adaptation in 2008. However, due to various reasons including the financial difficulties and stock market delisting of Gonzo in 2009, the anime project was finally officially abandoned in 2010.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Read the first chapter, it doesn't exactly have the best writing in the world but at least it's pretty to look at. I wonder how it'll look being animated.

OMG BEST NEWS EVER!!! I wanted an anime for Alive but it was so sad that they cancelled it...but this! I haven't been this excited for a while >< The art is beautiful, and the story is pretty interesting so far, at least from I can understand from the Chinese scans. This better not be cancelled D:

I apparently dropped this after one chapter which was stupid of me to do, though it does make me wonder

(I don't even remember reading it so take my words with a big grain of salt, probably will go back and read a few more scanlated chapters).

It looks interesting. Maybe I haven't been looking in the right places, but it sounds pretty unique too. I'll probably be watching this when it comes out.

Sounds interesting from the synopsis, and shounen series are always welcome. Doesn't look like there is much of it out yet so probably will be a short one.

The art is pretty and the synopsis on ANN reminds me of Kamisama Hajimemashita so I'll give it a shot.

This guy is the one that draw the artworks in alive the final evolution, isn't he? Hope alive getting an anime adaptation as well though it maybe impossible. I've to see the manga first before making any judgment if this was actually good or not.

Woah, the art is beautiful. It'll probably take a long while until the manga is completed, but I'll wait until then and read it before watching the anime.

It sounds really interesting! The art looks amazing from what I can tell, and plot sounds decent enough. I'll probably check out the manga soon, to give it a try.

I like the charadesign, characters look pretty adult. I'll decide when the PV comes out, but this one looks like worth waiting for ;)

I do not know the duo and the work in question, the synopsis is not apparent, the usual story school, I do not imbalance that much if I do not have at hand a PV and the staff that works there.

It's pretty entertaining, I like the comedy. The action scenes, which isn't too often, is nice, and there was a part where I felt was touching. I think the best part I like about it so far is the relationship between a god and his shinki. The synopsis is well, a synopsis. It doesn't really tell you too much about the manga unfortunately.

I really hope it will be taken by a studio with a budget and a good director, with these characters and their designs it's so easy to lose the nuances that make them so great. Could be fun!

I thought the same.
Also, action/adventure/shounen? Sounds good to me.

Synopsis and art look like they would be on the good side of the shounen action adventure genre, which I'm generally fond of so I will most likely check this out :)
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
