Occultic;Nine Is Not 4th Science Adventure Title

posted on by Egan Loo

Chiyomaru Shikura, the multi-creator known for Steins;Gate and the other "Science Adventure" games, asked people on Monday to spread the word that his latest work, Occultic;Nine, is not the fourth Science Adventure title. He did add that the novel can be considered the fourth Chiyomaru Shikura title after Chaos;HEAd, Steins;Gate, and Robotics;Notes. He also recommended, perhaps half-jokingly, "Okan" (a homonym for a slang for "mom") as the title's shortened name.

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.
