About Occultic;Nine


The multitude of small, miniscule “discomfort” later develops into a case so large it is beyond imagination...


Yuta Gamon is a 2nd year in high school. He runs "Kiri Kiri Basara," an affiliate blog that rounds up occult forum posts, for a shot at quick money, and challenges himself to the occult night and day to "hack and slash away!" the many supernatural phenomena existing in the world from a scientific standpoint.


However, with that blog of his as a catalyst, a group of downright maniacal and insane comrades have gathered about.


Based on the light novel series written by Chiyomaru Shikura (creator of Steins;Gate), Occultic;Nine is animated by renowned studio A-1 Pictures and directed by Kyohei Ishiguro (Your lie in April) and Miyuki Kuroki in her series directorial debut. The series will star Yuki Kaji (MAGI, KIZNAIVER, Your lie in April, DURARARA!!) as Yuta Gamon and Ayane Sakura (NISEKOI, Charlotte, Your lie in April) as Ryoka Narusawa.
