5pb, the game company that brought us Steins;gate, is now adapting the light novel by Chiomaru Shikaru called Occultic;Nine. Currently details are sparse, as we’ve only been given the current voice cast.
- Yuta Gamon (voiced by Yuki Kaji)
- Ryoka Narusawa (voiced by Ayane Sakura)
- Sarai Hashigami (voiced by Kaito Ishikawa)
- Aikawa Miyuu (voiced by Hitomi Yoshida)
- Touko Sumikaze (voiced by Shizuka Ito)
- Aria Kurenaino (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro)
- Kusakabe Kiryu (voiced by Kisho Taniyama)
- Nisizono Ririka (voiced by Mamiko Noto)
- Moritsuka Syun (voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara)
ANN also has a basic plot summary.
The story follows nine idiosyncratic individuals, including a black magic proxy/medium and a dōjin manga creator. Little incongruities that occur around these nine eventually lead to larger, unimaginable events that may alter what is considered common sense in this world.
While there isn’t much to go on (unless you’ve already read the light novel) those who enjoyed Steins;Gate and other games by 5pb in the ‘semicolon’ series should keep their eyes open for this one, especially with the recently announced sequel to Steins;Gate.
