With FUNimation getting things in order for the upcoming second season of Noragami, they’re also making it so that folks will check out the first season more. They’ve now added the first season with its full twelve episode run onto Hulu in its English language form, coming a few months after the home video release. The downside is that only the first two subtitled episodes are available there, though you can see them all on FUNimation’s service. Those that subscribe to Hulu can watch this show on their TV and mobile devices.
The show was directed by Kotaro Tamura based on scripts by Deko Akao along with character designs by Toshihiro Kawamoto. BONES handled the animation production for it.
The series stars Hiroshi Kamiya as Yato, Maaya Uchida as Hiyori Iki, Yuuki Kaji as Yukine, Miyuki Sawashiro as Bishamon, Jun Fukuyama as Kazuma, Aki Toyosaki as Kofuku, Daisuke Ono as Daikoku, Toru Ohkawa as Tenjin, Asami Imai as Mayu and Rie Kugimiya as Nora.
The first season of the series was picked up for North American release by FUNimation at the end of 2014 with a summer 2015 DVD/BD combo release that you can read our review of here . The English language cast includes:
Yato – Jason Liebrecht
Hiyori – Bryn Apprill
Yukine – Micah Solusod
Kofuku – Alexis Tipton
Daikoku – Ian Sinclair

Plot concept: 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.
