An official website today revealed that a TV anime adaptation of light novel Occultic;Nine has been green-lit. The website also announced the cast and posted an announcement CM and PV.

Cast
Yuuta Gamon: Yuki Kaji (Shingeki no Kyojin)
Ryouka Narusawa: Ayane Sakura (Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?)
Sarai Hashigami: Kaito Ishikawa (Haikyuu!!)
Miyuu Aikawa: Hitomi Yoshida (Digimon Adventure tri.)
Touko Sumikaze: Shizuka Itou (Heavy Object)
Aria Kureinaino: Miyuki Sawashiro (Noragami)
Kiryuu Kusakabe: Kishou Taniyama (Show By Rock!!)
Ririka Nishizono: Mamiko Noto (Persona 3 the Movie)

Synopsis
The story takes place in Kichijoji. Dreaming day and night of getting rich very quickly, Yuuta Gamon, a 2nd year high school student, owner of an affiliation blog called Kiri Kiri Basara, takes advantage of it and he gathers nine eccentric individuals. With their help, he challenges the supernatural and tries to solve all mysteries leading to unimaginable events that can potentially alter the course of the world...or maybe not?

The light novel series is written by Chiyomaru Shikura with illustrations by pako. The series has been publishing since August 2014 with two volumes in print. The series has also received a visual novel game that was announced last year in March. In addition, a manga version drawn by Ganjii has been publishing since October 2015 in good! Afternoon magazine.

Looking forward to this, the premise sounds intriguing. I'm actually kinda surprised this is getting an anime adaptation.

Hmmm

Chara-designs seem unique and story sounds decent.

Not enough info to judge whether it will be good but I am going to keep my hopes up.

Looks fine. Hopefully a good studio will be on charge. Surely, Anonymous;Code adaptation is on its way as well.

What's the novel like, does it lend itself to an anime adaptation?

Does it have something to do with Steins, Caos etc? I mean, is it set in the same universe?

Overlap's second LN series that is getting an anime(Grimgar is their first)

This one seems to be more reliant on name recognition.(nothing translated of this series so can't really judge it)

Yet another LN adaptation with no actual animation other than a list of the popular names it's attached to run by Aniplex with the usual suspects in the cast for probably A-1 Pictures to fuck up even more. Ho fucking hum, still waiting for something new and potentially interesting to get announced for 2016 beyond that Battery series though I don't expect it and never really did coming in since I've already concluded that anime is basically just Aniplex throwing popular shit with popular shit into a blender and hoping a hit will crap itself out and have seen little evidence to convince me otherwise for a third year straight (it's almost April already).

Mod Edit: Kept the first part but your second part is just off-topic rant

Same game studio, so maybe....
But

Occultic;Nine isn't a part of Science-Adventure series.

So ...

and form reddit:

Occultic;Nine is a LN (and upcoming VN) with input from Shikura Chiyomaru. It is NOT related to Science Adventure, it just has that naming convention because Shikura considers it his brand.

and:

It's not related. It's just Chiyomaru's motif.
The titles in SciADV and Chiyomaru's material have their little motifs (Chaos;Head being Delusional SciADV, Steins;Gate being Hypothetical SciADV, and Robotics;Notes being Augmented SciADV).
Occultic;Nine is its own thing, it is separate canon. They made a point to explicitly mention that.


BTW
1. I hope for original soundtrack from VN
2. I hope for good studio (no CG please).
Dub = fake crap. Always.

Pako for the character designs is a good choice, interesting too see Chiyomaru writing it he is usually planning and supervising stuff.

I think it was teased but could be wrong. All these things are really starting to blend together for me lately for obvious reasons. Too many similar casts similar premises similar producers and similar art styles. More than similar even

Looks really interesting with a promising cast (except for Kaii Yuki :s)

I hope it's done by SHAFT and team Shinobu. Seem like a good fit.

Seems kinda neat, might have to check it out. More so considering Kaji, Yuki and Kakihara, Tetsuya will be part of the cast.

This looks pretty decent as well with the cast selection.

Might check this out tbh, and not because of the author. Just the premise in itself.

and I find it funny there are a few that says probably the era of bad LN adaptations is over... tbh,
I am not really saying all LN adaptations are bad... just a half of them aren't meant for anime or just these adaptation doesn't live expectations of the source material.

Like fuck I thought I remember some industry insider hinting at a revival and interest in more classic and traditional style anime coming up and rumors of sequels or remakes of classics but other than a very small handful of low budget examples (and one major one in Osomatsu) that just doesn't seem to be what's happening at all. Oh well not that anybody here cares as long as they have their hype.

Do you even Jojo m8.

Well any Science Adventure anime is always welcome, though this one seems to have a bit more questionable origins

Miyuki Sawashiro is all the motivation I need to watch this, whether it's good or bad.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

what is "usual LN art" because the medium is huge and really cant be generalized. are you talking about the usual LN art you have been seeing. because there are a bunch of LNs in general.

This: http://puu.sh/nMNyk/ef66623ea9.jpg

Is not real, and it subtracts any seriousness from this anime.
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

IM NOT AN ELITIST

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.
