We have the latest information on the release date for Noragami Season 3, the plot, and whether or not the show will be renewed.
Noragami is a popular action and supernatural anime series that debuted in 2014. Even though the anime is what made Noragami famous around the world, the series was originally a manga, just like many other animes. Since 2010, Adachitoka has written and drawn the first original in the series. The successful studio Bones, which made animes like Kekkai Sensen and Mob Psycho 100, made the anime.
The anime’s second season, which was renewed right after the first season aired in 2014, was shown on top local TV fans like Tokyo MX and MBS from October 2, 2015, to December 25, 2015. The anime, which Funimation also licensed, gained fans worldwide, but there was no confirmation of a third season. So, could the series go on for a third season?
What Is The Anime Series Noragami?
The Japanese studio Bones makes this animated TV series (Bungo Stray Dogs, Mob Psycho 100, and The Case Study of Vanitas). Kotaro Tamura is in charge of the direction, and Deko Akao wrote the script. The first season, 12 episodes, aired from January 5, 2014, to March 23, 2014. Two original video animations (OVA) also aired on February 17, 2014, and July 17, 2014.
The 13-episode second season started on October 2, 2015, and ended on December 25, 2015. There were also two OVAs in Season 2, which aired on November 17, 2015, and March 17, 2016. Now that almost six years have passed, there is no official information about when the anime will be back. So, will Noragami have a third season? Let’s figure it out.
Noragami Season 3 Manga:
In Japan, there are 24 volumes of the Noragami manga. A side story manga from 2013 called Noragami: Stray Stories also exists. The number of copies sold of Noragami Manga has been decreasing yearly. It means the series is losing fans in Japan, which could be a big reason there won’t be a third season.

I think you should read the Noragami manga. Manga is the only way to keep the story going in 2022, and many fans like it better than anime.
Is Noragami Manga Finished?
Noragami is still ongoing. Both manga and anime have to do with this. There seems to be no news about what will happen when the manga hits its 100th chapter. The anime has only been on for two seasons, but there are still a lot of story arcs to be aired. It means that the anime is nowhere near over.
Will NORAGAMI have the 3rd Season?
Since the anime’s second season, more than seven years have passed. In July 2022, Kodansha, the studio and publisher of the manga for Bones, dropped the anime for a third season. Realistically, the possibilities of a new season are lower now that time has passed; however, the manga is still in development, so they are still there. Even though a lot of time has been given, the new season of an anime can still surprise people.
There are a few main reasons an anime gets a new season, and most of the time, animes are renewed based on these reasons. But the situation is different for Noragami. In the series’ second season, the writers wrote a song based on Islamic prayers, which got a great response from the Islamic world. Later, the team said sorry. People thought this was why the anime didn’t get a third season for a while. But a long time has passed, and the new season may not be affected by this issue at all. Let’s guess about the third season based on a few key points.
When will Season 3 of Noragami come out?
Unfortunately, neither Studio BONES nor the people who sell Noragami (like Funimation) have said anything about a third season. It’s not even clear that BONES will release a third season. Studios are among the best in the business, and its different teams are constantly working on different projects, like the recent “Godzilla: Singular Point.”
Even if BONES plans to make a third season of Noragami, we wouldn’t know when it would come out without some announcement or trailer. We know that the Noragami manga is much further along than the anime version, which means that if BONES ever decides to continue the series, they will have a lot of material to work with. The rest of the story won’t be available until then since it’s the only way they’ll be able to see the rest of the story any time soon.
Release Date for Noragami Season 3
We are unable to comment on Noragami season 3 at this time. But that doesn’t always mean that season 3 won’t happen. There is a 70-30% likelihood that a sequel will be released and a 0% chance that it won’t. The Blu-ray and manga sales were both good, which led to a sequel. Noragami’s first season was the only one to be released on the OTT platform, which didn’t generate much revenue.
The series will have a sequel because there is sufficient source material available for adaptation. The other reason is the high level of demand for season 3 as a result of the prolonged wait for season 3.
A year or two will pass while we wait and pray for good news. The chances of a season 3 release in 2023 or 2024 increase once the Bones production company confirms it in the upcoming year or this year.
What will the third season of Noragami’s story be?
We will see Yato’s true self, evil side, and terrible past in the third season. Yato kills Bishamon’s first family, but Bishamon forgives him, and Yato aspires to become a god with millions of worshipers who give him the glowing golden aura. For this, he will begin assembling his allies. For a reason, we will see Yato’s former regalia show up to do revenge on Yato, and we will understand why. Yato is unaware of Nora’s immense strength.
We will also learn about Ebisu, the parallel universe’s God of Fortune, who employed spirits to improve his world before being branded a criminal. No god will be pleased with how he operates, and many of them have murderous plans for him. Yukine will assist Yato in becoming the God of Fortune in the interim. The third season will also demonstrate how Hiyori, Yato, and Yukine’s friendship will grow throughout the narrative.
Who will be in Season 3 of Noragami? Cast:
If “Noragami” gets a third season, fans already know what they can expect to see in terms of the voice cast. Hiroshi Kamiya will still be Yato in the third season (according to Myanimelist). In the same way, actors Maaya Uchida and Yuki Kaji will keep playing Yato’s friends Hiyori and Yukine.
Jason Liebrecht, Bryn April play this main trio, and Micha Solusod in the English dub, and they are likely to stay the same if “Noragami” Season 3 ever comes to be. We don’t know when the English version of the book will come out about the original. In general, English-dubbed episodes can come out weeks after their original counterparts, which means it may take longer for English fans to see season 3.
Trailer for Noragami Season 3
Currently, there is no official trailer for Noragami’s 3rd season, which is set to debut in 2022. Neither is there a trailer for Noragami season 4. In order to remember how good Noragami’s first season was, watch this second-season trailer.
To Sum Up!
You should now know if there will be a release date for Noragami Season 3 or even Noragami Season 4. In my opinion, there won’t be a third season, but if there is any news or rumors about a third season, I will update this post.
