Aniplex of America describes Occultic;Nine as:
Yuta Gamon is a second year student in high school. For a shot at quick money, he runs “Kiri Kiri Basara,” an affiliate blog that rounds up occult forum posts. He 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.
With that blog of his as a catalyst, a group of downright maniacal and insane comrades gather together.
Their lives mysteriously intertwine, despite destiny’s original plans; and a multitude of small, miniscule “incidents” starts to happen around them. Over time, they become a giant swell and later develop into a case so large, it is beyond imagination…
J-Novel Club currently holds the digital license for the original light novel series.
