Also apparently the first episode covered the first LN. So damn that pacing.

Entire first volume? That's pretty bad already.

High tension is all I can think about lol


This time the ; series moves to occult from the last two scientific settings, I preferred the latter but oh well.
I've to say I wasn't really impressed by this first episode, not as much as I've been with other shows this season. Mostly character/setting introduction. Still that ending surely shaked things up.
Also loved the ED.

No, just no. What school girl has a bust bigger than her head? The premise looked interesting but I can't get past that over the top fan service school girl.

AND this series soars off to a bad start.


The pacing's on a frantic FLCL speed, and the character introduction partly reminds me of DRRR!!, but with much disconnect. As for the animation, there were times that the character outline seems shot, and I aint sure what to think at this point.


There were some moments that piqued my interest (including that scene at the end), but yet again, as mentioned with regards to the pacing, it didn't give me the chance to properly digest what was goin' on. I'll give this a couple of episodes more, a mere hope that things will become better down the line.

Occultic; Nine isn't part of the Science Adventure Series, it takes place in it's own world.

Made by the same company and uses similar naming conventions, but different setting / world

I got thru 5 minutes before turning this off. The MC just would not shut the f*** up. It was giving me a headache.

The part with the humongous boobs was kinda the final straw.

On the plus side, I didn't find the animation that horrible.

Hmm. Any hype for this is out the window.

Maybe it will turn around next week? I guess I'm just not a fan of the 500% full speed ahead, never shut up style.

I also see people mentioning it covered the entire Light Novel #1? That's horrendous pacing if that's the case. I could see maybe covering a Manga volume in an episode (depending on the manga content), but a LN volume in an episode? And first episode? Yikes.

Well, they picked the perfect season to air this as there doesn't seem to be much competition at the moment.....

I haven't seen that much boob-sway since Miss Mune-Mune in "Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi". And this girl is ANNOYING to boot. Ultra C cup was more like Ultra K cup!

The fortune teller, curse gypsy, and book producer seemed interesting and have potential. The males all look like rip-offs of C-list characters from recent and forgettable titles.

I've watched Chaos;head and... I didnt like it, thought it was kinda boring. So when Steins;Gate came around I said to myself "oh no not falling for that one" turns out Steins;Gate was awesome so I'm gonna give this one a try... but I'm still wary!

It's like the director took a drunk bet to make a serious paranormal mystery in the style of Teekyu

Was kind of hard to follow the plot, but I'm still a bit curious to see how all the characters come together. Those Ultra-Cs look almost painful big they are.

I actually liked the episode overall but it was a fairly close call. The main character was another in the unfortunately long line of anime MCs who are so annoying and useless that they have the potential to ruin a series all on their own. Boobs girl is not bad but feels completely out of place here. Maybe as a sidekick to a better character or in a different show altogether I'd like her more. The boobs themselves don't bother me so much because at least the rest of her isn't stick thin so they don't look quite as ridiculous as they could. Offensive gay stereotype man almost made me turn the show off then and there. Eh.. the art was fine and I found the concept intriguing enough that I'll probably give it another episode or two just to see if more actual story and more characters distracts from the obvious problems.

CrunchyRoll has a fairly shoddy record of picking shows to champion before they even air and this one isn't helping that any.

Try Robotic;Notes it has a slow start but it's worth it to stick till the end.

i'm bit lost what happened, for the most part. I might as well watch it again.

I have to say that animation doesn't look too great but i suppose it can't be helped.

And again... Holy s***! Those are some huge... you know. Not that i'm a perv or anything but just saying. Fanservice alert!
