Sun Rising Blog has a brief description on what to expect on “Noragami” season 2.
“In the world of ‘Noragami,’ gods need regalia to aid them in whatever they need to do, like fight evil creatures and fight each other.
A regalia is once a wandering soul.
Normally gods like Yato have only one active regalia.
Bishamon I think has 5 at the start of the anime and she’s actively using all of them,” the source wrote.
“If I can still remember, Yato killed one of Bishamon’s regalia, which angered the god.
Why? That was unexplained up to the end.
Actually, after Bishamon was introduced in a few episodes, she became a minor character towards the end of the first season.
Maybe this is the reason – the Bishamon arc, which the 2nd season will tackle,” the source added.
For those who are new to the series, here’s a brief summary of “Noragami” season 1 from Funimation.
“Yato may just be a minor god now, but he’s determined to make it big and he’s got a plan.
Unfortunately, things just don’t seem to be going his way.
He doesn’t have a single shrine dedicated to him, his partner has just quit, and now he’s got to find a new divine weapon.
Just when things look bleak, he meets a girl named Hiyori and changes her life forever.”
