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.

MC looks like hes going to be a asshole, but a likable one

Nah Yato is not much of an asshole, he's more like blunt and a tad harsh when he's serious, but he's mostly just a very chill/funny character imo :D

Anyways, I'm really glad that the character designs does justice to the original art, it's beautiful *_*

Kamiya and Kaji as the main characters' seiyuus? I'm so in.

Oct 1, 2013 8:39 AM by Mayuka

That cast looks great, I'm surprised Kaji Yuuki was chosen for Yukine, although I love both the VA and the character, it's hard to imagine Yukine with his voice. I'm sure it won't be disappointing though. Kamiya Hiroshi as Yato is perfect, and FukuJun as Kazuma is very fitting. OnoD too as Daikoku. Not too sure about Uchida Maaya since I've only heard her as Rikka, though I thought she did a great job in Chuunibyou. I'm so excited for winter season now! I'm glad this isn't an Alive 2.0 and it's really happening ;__;

Noragami's official site
There is a toll-free number there (080-0919-8100) and if you call you'd hear message from the MC. Fans are guessing the seiyuu behind the MC is Kamiya...

Visuals looks alright I guess:

This is a better quality of the image I posted earlier in this thread.

I just hope the anime can do Adachi Toka's art justice.

Sep 3, 2013 9:49 AM by yhunata

This is great! Noragami is my favourite manga at the moment so I definitely look forward to it :)
I don't know much about studios but seeing as BONES are involved in many other anime and movies I like I'm put at ease.

There's just one thing I'm wondering about, on ANN the description for Noragami looks wrong. Hiyori isn't the one who gets bullied but a girl named Mutsumi. Hiyori isn't introduced until chapter 2, so I hope this won't be changed in the anime because I kinda lika how Yato and Hiyori meet each other x)
