"Paranormal science" manga adaptation ends its two-year run

This year's fifth issue of Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine announced on Friday that Ganjii's Occultic;Nine manga series is approaching its climax and will end in the sixth issue on May 6.

The manga adapts Chiyomaru Shikura's Occultic;Nine light novel series. J-Novel Club publishes the novel series in English digitally and Seven Seas Entertainment is planning print editions. J-Novel Club describes the series:

Yuta Gamon, a young boy who lives in Kichijoji, runs an occult blog called "Kirikiri Basara." He spends his days dreaming of making a fortune off his affiliate links. What starts off as a tiny feeling that something's wrong develops into a case that goes beyond imagination. Suddenly, Yuta brings together the fates of nine strangers. Black magic, the afterlife, psychics, fortune-telling, other dimensions, prophecies, hypnosis, urban legends... The world is filled with flim-flam!

Ganjii began the adaptation in Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine in October 2015. Kodansha shipped the 3rd volume of the manga in January of this year.

Shikura first launched the novel series in August 2014 with illustrations by pako. The Overlap Bunko imprint published the 2nd volume in 2015.

The series inspired a 12-episode television anime series in 2016 and Crunchyroll streamed as it aired in Japan.

MAGES. head Chiyomaru Shikura announced a game adaptation for Occultic;Nine in 2015, and said in December that the game is slated for this year.
