Now, it’s been seven years since we’ve last seen a proper season of Noragami and we don’t really know anything about the show’s future. Having said that, Noragami is popular enough to merit a return so we’re hopeful that the show will return sooner rather than later. Be that as it may, the anime series definitely isn’t finished, not even close, but we don’t know whether we are, actually, going to see all of the manga in an anime format.
