What is Noragami? Noragami is a world in which Gods fight creatures called Phantoms (basically creatures that feed off of sin.) Although they are Gods, they do not necessarily all get along with each other. (Like not how all humans get along with each other.) These Gods use weapons to defeat these Phantoms called Regalia. Regalia are spirits who were once Humans who have died with a will to continue living. This is why these previous read more
