A blog disproving the supernatural, co-run by NEET teenager Yuuta Gamon and his enthusiastic best friend Ryouka Narusawa, becomes the catalyst that would bring together a group of people who supposedly have nothing to do with each other.

These individuals include high school fortune teller Miyuu Aikawa, who joins Yuuta to work on the blog; realist Sarai Hashigami, who is stunned when tragedy strikes his family; doujin artist Ririka Nishizono, who has an uncanny ability to predict the future with her art; black magic practitioner and local curse expert Aria Kurenaino and her ghostly friend; Shun Moritsuka, a seemingly childish otaku detective; and reporter Touko Sumikaze.

As this unlikely group, bound only by the strings of fate, find their way to each other, they are confronted with murder and other events that are shrouded by the presence of the supernatural. They must band together to solve the mysteries interlacing the city and their lives.

I am so happy that I did not listen to the thoughts of others, and just went into this show blindly!
All I see is others saying that this is rushed, and the pacing was off yada yada yada. THEY'RE WRONG. It is so important to go into this with an open mind, and to just accept what you see. Just because the story is told in an unorthodox way that doesn't stive to be like other animes, does not mean it is told incorrectly. The story is told in a unique way, wherein they answer one question while simultaneously creating 5 other questions. I ...

Mixed Feelings
Mixed bag really. It has such good twists and turns but is dragged down by the machine gun paced talking and the vague beginning. The world is interesting, but there is no focus for the first half and then the second half is just exposition shoving the plot around.

The art style is nice however, it’s a little bit different than most. It makes it stand out. Well that and it’s plot. The plot pivots of into absolute insane directions. If it wasn’t for the earnestness of the acting, parts of the plot border on Riverdale. Which isn’t a bad thing because it’s that insane ...

Recommendation: Skip this one. Mystery fans may get some enjoyment out of it, but it will be just as likely to be annoying and frustrating.

Occultic;Nine is an interesting little mystery story that is unfortunately dragged down by horrendous characters and a pretentious, grating style that intrudes on nearly every scene. Among the 9 title characters, only about 3 of them are tolerable (the black magic girl, the fortune teller and the journalist). The main character Yuta, Ryotas, and the detective are about as aggressively off-putting as you can make characters that are ostensibly supposed to be likeable. It was a chore at ...

The Fall 2016 Anime Season Has Some Actually Good LN Adaptations!

Light Novel adaptations have had something of a poor reputation over the past couple of years in anime. For every actually good one, there are 5-6 terrible highschool harems led by Yuji Everylead the Bland. But this upcoming Fall 2016 anime season looks like it might be the exception....maybe?
