Noragami is a fantasy manga series by Adachitoka that began serialization in Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Magazine in January 2011's issue. An anime adaptation was announced in the fall of 2013 and will start airing in the Winter 2014 schedule.
At the boundary between this realm and another, there are eight million gods, dead spirits who serve the gods, and other assorted spirits who help and meddle in the affairs of humans. When a young middle school student finds herself bullied by classmates, she runs to the bathroom crying and finds a message along with a phone number that says, "I solve your troubles." When she calls the number, a crude jersey-wearing boy named Yato appears.
Yato calls himself a god but he does not answer people's prayers and no one acknowledges him. He one day hopes to have a shrine and followers, but right now he only has his shinki, Yukine, and the ability to cut all who pass between this world and the next.
