The production committee of Noragami Aragoto, the second TV anime season of Adachitoka’s Noragami manga, has released a statement revealing that the recently released OST is being recalled and cancelling all further copies due to one of the tracks featuring an improper use of sounds relating to Islam.

The anime’s website has revealed that the committee is recalling all current shipments and discs, and stopping all future shipments, of the recent OST (~Noragami no Oto 2~) immediately. The track Push Buttons has been identified as the piece of music containing the sounds. The song itself features an improper use of the Muslim call to prayer, known as the Adzan.

The OST itself was released in Japan on November 25th and all current copies on shelves and future stock will be removed. Due to the recall of the OST, the 1st Blu-ray and DVD volume of Noragami Aragoto has also been delayed; it was previously scheduled for December 18.

The committee apologies to all concerned parties and further states:


At no point in the production process was it our intention to insult Islam or its followers, or to commit sacrilege, with this use of sound. However, we had not confirmed the meaning of these sounds, and the result was a lack of consideration for Islam and its followers.

I think I will start using that as "weapons hot" sound at the range. What do you all think?

Where can I get a copy of this song?

I bet because they pulled this song that it'll be even more in demand than it would ever be.

Now they have to re do the episodes that involved this song and pick something else that might just so happen to fit the vibe and animation cuts of the show B/.

Right, located it on the interwebs.

It's track 13 on disc 2. I'll be taking a listen to it soon.

It's a business decision. If they feel it's bad for business or PR, that's their call. It's not worth getting mad over.
