Noragami is a Japanese supernatural manga created by Adachitoka. First aired back in early 2014, the first series comprised of a total of 12 episodes. The second series was released on October 15th, 2015. Noragami quickly became one of the most successful anime of all time.
Fans of Noragami have been waiting for news of a third series for more than two years now. There were rumors that the next series was to be released in late 2018, early 2019, but this is looking less and less likely as we are now several months into 2020.
Here is what we know about the release of season 3 of Noragami.
The story of Noragami centers around a school girl called Hiyori. One day, after offering to help a total stranger, Hiyori gets into an accident that changes her life forever.
Somehow, her soul breaks free of her body and enters a parallel world. This ‘other side’ or ‘far shore’ is inhabited by lost human souls and demons. Hiyori discovers that she is able to travel freely between the world of the living and this other reality.
While traveling in the far shore, she meets a god called Yato, who is trying to raise the money for a temple. Yato offers to grant Hiyori a wish for five yen.
Disturbed by her accident and the fact that her soul can now leave her body, Hiyori accepts Yato’s offer. She wishes to have her life return to what it was before the accident where her soul is unable to leave her body.
However, after Hiyori meets Yukine, she changes her mind and becomes friends with them. What follows is a series of exciting adventures as Hiyori, Yato, and Yukine journey through this parallel world.

Noragami Season 3: Plot – SPOILER ALERT
Though the studio responsible for Noragami has not yet confirmed any details about Season 3, here is what the rumors are.
These observations are based on what happens in the original manga. Known as Noragami Aragoto, this manga is also the reason that there is such speculation about a third series in the first place. The TV series has yet to cover so much of what readers of the manga will already know.
If you don’t want to know the plot to series 3 of Noragami, skip this section.
Season 3 is expected to take a dark turn. We will discover Yato’s dark past and real identity. A big portion of the series is expected to be dedicated to explaining the relationship between Yato and his father.
The third season was full of surprises. We learn Yato’s real identity and more about her unsettling path. Hiyori’s mysterious kisser is revealed as being none other than Yato’s father. It is expected that this season will closely examine Yato’s relationship with his father and reveal yet more secrets. In Yato’s quest to become worshiped by millions of humans, he makes a powerful enemy.
Noragami Season 3 Release Date
The big question is when Noragami season 3 will be released. The original rumors of a late 2018 or late 2019 release date have been proven untrue.
What is also becoming clearer with each passing day is that we might not see a summer 2020 release either.
BONES Studio, the company behind Noragami, has still not released any official information regarding the release date or anything else for that matter.
Given the amount of hype regarding a late 2018/early 2019 release, and the two year gap since season 2, it is almost certain that we can expect to see release of season 3 of Noragami eventually, although it is rather unlikely that it will come out this year in 2020. We may however receive some official announcements later this year.
The autumn is a particularly popular period for releasing new shows in Japan because of the change in climate. This change is the same in countries such as The United States and Russia. It is also the end of the rainy season in other key anime markets like Thailand and the Philippines.
If Season 3 is not released this summer, then it is almost certain to be released in late summer/early autumn, 2021.
