Hiyori Iki – She was a common middle schooler until she gets involved in a bus accident while trying to save a stranger. This mishap led her soul to leave her body and slip to the other side of the world where demons and human souls live together. Through her soul, she meets Yato and Yukine and goes with them on the struggle and adventure to let her soul get back to her human body.
Yato – He’s a nameless god without a shrine who’s determined to make a name for himself by accepting wishes for 5 yen like he accepts Hiyori’s wish to let her soul meet her body. Since he doesn’t have any holy shrine, so he collects wealth to build his shrine where humans can worship him as a god. He goes on an adventurous journey with Hiyori and Yukine to fulfill his determination to make himself recognizable.
Noragami Season 3: Expected Plot
Noragami Season 3 will pick up the storyline where it left in Season 2. Season 3 will be adapted from volume 10 onwards. So, let’s see first what happened in the previous seasons. Hiyori Iki, a common middle schooler who was living her life happily until she met with an accident while trying to save a stranger from a bus accident and then her soul slips away from her body and she becomes an Ayakashi, a creature who’s aware of both the parallel worlds. Ayakashi has the unique abilities with which they can travel frequently to both sides of the world, i.e., the human world (Near Shore) where normal creatures like animals and normal human resides and live their life merrily, the afterlife (Far Shore) where monsters and human souls linger and roam together.
While traveling across both worlds, Hiyori Iki meets and befriends a Yato, an unnamed god. Since he’s unnamed and he doesn’t have his identity so he’s keen on making one. To collect money for building his shrine where people can worship him, he takes an amount of 5 yen for accepting the wishes of mortals. Hiyori wants to live her life normally like a human so he wishes Yato to repair her body so that her soul doesn’t leave her human body and therefore she can live her life merrily. Then Hiyori meets Yukine, Yato’s Regalia, a weapon created from a dead human soul and named by Yato. Then three of them go on their adventurous journey to fulfill their wishes. So, season 3 is likely to revolve around the obstacles and the journey these three characters go through while trying to fetch their dreams and ambitions.
