The “paranormal science” story follows nine idiosyncratic individuals, linked by the “Choujou Kagaku Kirikiri Basara” occult summary blog run by 17-year-old second-year high school student Yuuta Gamon. Little incongruities that occur around these nine eventually lead to a larger, unimaginable event that may alter what is considered common sense in this world. – My Anime List

And what the goal of this whole approach really is. Is Occultic;Nine going to be all flash and no substance? Or is it going to pleasantly surprise like Steins;Gate did. I’m not sure, at all, of anything when it comes to this show, but what I am indeed interested in, is learning more. At the end of the day, that’s a win for Occultic;Nine, at least as far as I can see. Time will tell if all the naysayers and all those annoyed by this show, will be right, or if something else will happen.

Occultic;Nine may easily be the most addicting anime series this fall.
My Anime List
The studios A-1 Pictures are famous (or rather, infamous) for messing up adaptations terribly, leading to very disastrous ones. Last year (or 2014-15), they pull off the beautiful “Your Lie in April,” which had a beautiful story, beautiful animation, and beautiful characters. This year, they adapted Boku Dake ga Inai Machi where they had spectacular animation and music, episodes 1-10 were very thrilling, but with an ending in which many people were disappointed with. For me, that anime was great despite the ending. For A-1 Pictures, there’s always that one anime each year in which they pull off something amazing. Whether it’ll be this anime or another, who knows. It’s as if they’re pulling a lottery ticket from the casino, in hopes that they’ve made something great. For Occultic;Nine, the first episode can be a hit or miss for the viewers. They may dislike it for the ridiculously fast pace they shoved into the first episode, as the first episode adapted a whole volume of a light novel for the series. As the anime goes along though, pacing to many people seems to adjust very well. Getting back to the first episode, I loved it. I have very high hopes for this series from what I’ve seen. Just the first episode of the series was very well conducted to me, and I hope to see the same for along-coming episodes. The only real problem I have with the series is the excESSIVELY LARGE BREASTS. Just the breasts is my only problem.
This series has a ton of attitude to it, built up by both the art direction and the quirkiness of the characters. The story has been hinting (er- maybe straight out shoving it in your face?) that it will include morally grey – possibly even darker – themes. From what I’ve seen so far, I think that it will handle itself well in this area. The characters seem to hold their own, and I have faith that they will be able to stand out in the Paranormal
Overall, Occultic;Nine has some interesting ideas that may be worth checking out in the long term. Unfortunately, the mixture of fast dialogue with uninspired characters makes it difficult to want to push through to see more.
The overall idea of O;N is so far nice, unless the giant tits are somehow relevant to the plot I categorize them as a brain fart of author as well as the random alien taser she brings up which doesn’t make any sense. And the way A1 handeled the adaptation doesn’t help it at all…
Anime News Network
I was sadly looking forward to this anime. I haven’t been able to check out everything from the new season, but the vast majority of things I’ve watched have let me down. This included. I’m willing to give it another episode in the hope that it’ll control itself better, spend real time with the characters and develop a plot that I can follow rather than a midway point shocker and a cliffhanger shocker. If it turns into that, I’ll pass altogether and move on to something else.
This anime could have been something, but it wasnt. sadness
