Adachitoka’s Noragami Manga Surpasses 8 Million Copies Worldwide With Release Of Final Volume




After gracing the pages of Monthly Shonen Magazine for 14 years, the final volume (vol. 27) of Adachitoka’s Noragami manga released in Japan on Feb 16, 2024.

Alongside the final volume, Kodansha announced that the manga has surpassed an impressive eight million copies printed worldwide.

Written and illustrated by the manga artist duo Adachitoka, Noragami started in Kodansha’s shonen manga magazine Monthly Shonen Magazine on Dec 6, 2010.

A 12-episode anime television series adaptation produced by Bones was broadcast from January to March 2014. A 13-episode second season, titled Noragami Aragoto, was broadcast from October to December 2015.

MAL describes the plot of Noragami as:

As a relatively unknown minor deity without any worshippers, Delivery God Yato takes on odd jobs for only five yen, with the goal of amassing a fortune large enough to buy himself a shrine. But in addition to obscurity, he has another problem: his “Shinki,” or weapon partner, has decided to resign, tired of being with a homeless god. Left with no weapon, Yato takes on more jobs, hoping to find a new partner soon.

While out putting up fliers for a missing cat, Yato sees said cat and chases after him, right into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Hiyori Iki, a nearby girl, rushes to push Yato out of the way and ends up hurt herself. After waking up in the hospital, she discovers the incident has knocked her soul loose from her body. Realizing his actions caused this, Yato promises to help return Hiyori to normal—for five yen of course. But in order to return her to normal, he requires a new Shinki, which he finds in the rebellious spirit Yukine.

Noragami tells the story of a girl walking the line between two worlds, and a stray deity’s quest for a place to call his own.
