A Quick Recap
Before jumping into the discussions of Noragami Season 3, Let’s have a quick look at what we have seen in the previous season. The story on Noragami revolves around Yato, a God who lost his place and now trying to gather up his followers. He responds to his followers and does their errand works at a cost of 5 yen. One day he meets with a girl Hiyori. Hiyori has a problem. Her soul leaves her body frequently. Yato promises Hiyori that he will help her with this problem and they develop a bonding. We see afterward that he makes a bond with a lost spirit named Yukine. He makes a bond with Yatogami and acts as a weapon in his hand.
Are We Going To See Noragami Season 3?
Now, in this article, we are not going to focus on the release date of the Noragami Season 3. We are going to discuss the possibilities of the third installment and what are we going to see in it.
We know that the production for a new season depends on how much of the source material is left for adaptation. In the case of this anime, there is plenty of stuff left to adapt. The Adachitoka has released 24 volumes so far. The last volume of the manga was released on 15th October of last year. Any data hasn’t been fixed for the next volume but the manga readers know that there will be more.
The first season adapted the first 4 volumes of the manga and the second season adapted from volumes 5 to 9. So… naturally, Noragami Season 3 will start from volume 10.
Anticipated Plot for Noragami Season 3
Coming to the plot of Noragami Season 3, we will be seeing more about the dark past of Yatogami as the God of Calamity. As we have seen Bishamon appearing in the previous season, some new deities will make their debut. As the third installment is not the end, the problem of Hiyori will not be solved and we will be seeing her for the foreseeable future.
