Chiyomaru Shikura collaborates with Rental Magica illustrator pako

Chiyomaru Shikura, the multi-creator known for Steins;Gate and the other "scientific adventure" games, is making his debut as a light novelist with Occultic;Nine next spring. The announcement is being made at this weekend's Comic Market 83 event at the Tokyo Big Sight complex.

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.

pako (Rental Magica) will be illustrating Occultic;Nine. The novel's imprint will be the new Overlap Bunko, which will launch on April 25. The other Overlap Bunko creators include Kannagi director Yutaka Yamamoto, Ben-To creator Asaura, and returning Infinite Stratos creator Izuru Yumizuru.
