Scanlations of not popular series take time, heck even some popular series are way behind on translations.

It's a lot of work to translate and scanlate a chapter.

I know I know, still it came as a bit of a shock to me. I guess that if there is more then thirty chapters out then there is enough to do it. I guess we'll be getting scans sooner if this thing becomes popular over here though.

The current scalation group which translates Noragami started working on it this year so it's to be expected that they'll take time to catch up (other groups translated the first 3 chapters but dropped the project before the current one picked it up).

The manga is licensed in Germany, this week volume 5 is going to be released there while next week volume 9 (which comes with a drama CD) is out in Japan

I bet it doesn't, lol. Most likely it's some word plus "kami" (神) written with katakana

Based on my online dictionary, it probably is a made-up word meaning "stray god." That would fit the story.

This show starts on Sunday, and to get ready I've prepared a characters/seiyuus page with pics of nine main characters and their seiyuus, and a bit of info about each seiyuu. Great cast here.

It consists of two parts:

野良 のら
Field, farm / Rural, agricultural / Stray (e.g. dog, cat)

神 かみ
god(s)

So it could either mean "bumpkin god" or "stray god".

Stray is more likely than rural/agricultural/farm, IMHO.

No, not at all. "rural/agricultural/farm" is the main meaning (野 is "field").
"Stray" is inferred from that main meaning: "something you often see out in the fields".

I think "bumpkin god" could very well be the intended meaning. From what I saw from the preview, he's a very rough character, behaving like a bumpkin of sorts.
"Stray" generally isn't applied to persons. In that case, you'd rather have something like 旅烏 (tabigarazu) meaning "vagabond", or even 瘋癲 (fuuten), a vagabond that's a bit insane (which would also fit for him, from the looks of it).

A title can refer to more than just one character. You make it sound like the title can only be about Yato.

As a manga reader, stray is very likely the intended meaning for Yato. Saying any more would just be spoilers.

That aside, there's no official kanji name for Noragami since it's in katakana so it's just a matter of interpretation.

And Shadow does have a point, there are a few characters you could probably apply the title to but the most obvious one is(are) our main character(s).

Very solid first episode. Iki's unexpected reaction to Yato in the hospital, as well as her many other animated reactions, instantly made me love her. Good to hear more from Maaya Uchida (Rea from Sankarea still being her best role so far). Hiroshi fits Yato like a glove. I hope the animation quality keeps up like this too.

Good first impressions so far and really like the heroine's 'tries to stick out for others' attitude, a keep for now.

Not a bad start. The voice actor behind Yato(who also voices Koyomi Araragi) really helps in making the show.

I enjoyed this more than Space Dandy. There was nothing particularly new here but it was fun.

And Kamiya Hiroshi delivered but I didn't expect anything less.

yea, the voice actor of Yato really carrying it right now.
Premise is interesting enough for me to keep watching an episode or two.

Hiyori is a weird girl, at first she seems like a pretty grounded girl. But seems she has a lot of weird character quirks and over-reacts a lot.

The beginning prologue was kind of confusing. Was that girl in the classroom have nothing to do with anything? And it was just a way to introduce our stray god and the parting of his weapon?
