Yato and Yukine have finally mended their relationship as god and Regalia, and everyone has returned to their daily life. Yato remains a minor and unknown deity who continues taking odd jobs for five yen apiece in the hopes of one day having millions of worshippers and his own grand shrine. Hiyori Iki has yet to have her loose soul fixed by Yato, but she enjoys life and prepares to attend high school nonetheless.
Taking place immediately after the first season, Noragami Aragoto delves into the complicated past between Yato and the god of war Bishamon. The female god holds a mysterious grudge against Yato, which often results in violent clashes between them. It doesn’t help that Bishamon’s most trusted and beloved Regalia, Kazuma, appears to be indebted to Yato. When lives are on the line, unraveling these mysteries and others may be the only way to correct past mistakes. [Written by MAL Rewrite]
Noragami Aragoto is the second season of Noragami. The story of this season was mostly focused on Bishamon and Eibas and how Yato is involved with them. The season is more dramatic than the first one. It is also more unpredictable. The season has alot of darkness revolve around it. It felt like the anime went from Shounen to Seinen in this season because the story did feel more mature unlike the usual Shounen cliche. You get ti see a different side of Bishamon in this season. I honestly don’t remember Eibas from the first season but I came to admire him in this one. It’s safe to say that Noragami Aragoto is one of the best Shounen Anime in 2015. If you haven’t watched the first Noragami you should watch them both. If you have watched the first season you must watch the second one you won’t be disappointed.
Overall Rate: 8/10

Noragami and its sequel are among my favourite anime and it has managed to convert a few non-anime fans as well. The mix of humour and action is pretty perfect. I found the second season a bit darker and mor serious, but it was still really fun to watch. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Thank you for the comment!
Not too bad of series. Waiting to see on dubbed edition to come out.
