Breakdown Shakespeare once said that ‘all the world’s a stage and all the men and women in it merely actors’.

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Anime

Occultic Nine is one of 2016’s best paranormal anime series. Chiyomaru Shikura (also the creator of Steins;Gate), is the brain behind this masterpiece.

Steins;Gate was based on a game, while Occultic Nine was on a light novel. Perhaps, this difference of source medium made Occultic Nine a rather unusual series than one can expect. Leaving the question of whether this anime is good or not for a second, what’s most striking about the series is how unconventional and outright weird and bold it is. Light novels, by their nature, are a medium […]
