Kodansha Comics Licenses Noragami Manga Series

North American manga publisher Kodansha Comics announced today that it has licensed the Noragami manga series, known as Noragami: Stray God.  The company plans to release the first volume of Adachitoka’s popular action fantasy manga this fall.


Noragami tells the story of a stray god named Yato. FUNimation is currently simulcasting the anime. Here is the description:


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.
