The story takes place a little in the future. Guided by one particular song, young elementary school student Suzuhara Sorata, from the Heisei Era, is warped through a time skip to an unfamiliar place that looks much like the towns from the Meiji or Taishou period from his textbooks. In this world, he meets three young ladies and nine young men and joins them on a journey aboard the mysterious Norn ship, a giant globe that floats in midair.


Sentai Filmworks has licensed Norn9: Norn+Nonet for the North American market.

Hmmm...Did you read that synopsis for Norn9 ? If you didn't, read it and come back.


Good? Ok. Now you can erase it from your mind because that synopsis is a lie. Did I ruin your hopes and dreams for this show yet?

Story - 4

I am serious, what the synopsis says is not even a quarter of what's really going on. If it would have indeed focused on the story from Sorata's eyes from episode 1 to the end, maybe we could have gotten a decent sci-fi story, but nope. The kid arrives around episode 3 or 4 and gets ignored for most of the show read more

What else is there to say about Norn9 other than I found it to be the most boring anime of the Winter 2016 season.

There is this grandiose plot that involves time and history, but it felt out there. I'm not sure if it was that I missed something, but the logic in this is just confusing and makes no sense. It also makes me wonder why everything is as it is. While I don't mind this concept, per se, what made it uninteresting (besides it's mind-boggling logic) is the rest of the story being mixed in. Whatever that wasn't about the overall plot is so read more

Story: 8/10

Even though the synopsis was part of the story but it didn't mainly focus in the story. The episodes fit together neatly into a continuous story, which I really enjoyed it.

Art: 10/10

The art style in this anime is nice and relaxing even though it isn't the best I've. The color and affect are good and amazing.

Sound: 10/10

The sounds are actually good. The character voice actors fitting for the character they portrayed. And the soundtracks are the best one I ever heard. It really amazing and I love it. It goes together with the story plot.

Characters: 10/10
The characters look nice with that uniform read more

Rather than a review, this is more of a forewarning.

Having played and thoroughly enjoyed the visual novel/ game version of this anime adaptation, I sort of began watching this show with the expectation that there would be a ton of missing content, and I could almost smell the disappointment and confusion of new viewers.

A fact: the plot for Norn9 makes zero sense being told just once. From the get-go it has a complicated world and story line, with each characters' individual stories having huge effects on others'.

Logistically it's pretty impossible to cram hours and hours and hours of character development and backstory read more
