Occultic;Nine [Light Novel]



A relatively new series written by Shikura Chiyomaru (who was involved in projects: Chaos;Head, Steins;Gate and Robotic;Notes)

Artist: Pako
Publisher: Overlap Bunko
Volumes: 2 (Ongoing)
Summary:
Quote:
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. (ANN)
Website: http://occultic9.jp/
Vol 1 & 2 Covers
Spoiler:


This novel entered my favorites list as soon as I finished reading volume 1. I think fans of the science vs occult type genre will probably enjoy this as well ^^.
As the title suggests, this work has 9 protagonists, and the story is set in Kichijouji.

Hmm, I wonder why it isn't a visual novel like the others. Otherwise, seems interesting

Maybe the author just wanted to challenge his novel writing skills? In the authors notes, he does put emphasis on the fact that he isn't confident in writing novels at all though.
Anyways, even if it doesn't have a visual novel now, it's probably getting one soon. On the cover of the 2nd volume, it already says it will be made into a game. The cast is even decided already!

Looking the images i have a strange feeling.
Is this related to Shin Megami Tensei: Persona?

The pics does resemble Persona's design and "science meets occult" is one of SMT's trademark but it has no relation with the story whatsoever.

The artist also drew illustrations for UNGO and Rental Magica, so you might see resemblances there. But I can see where you're going with the Persona reference. The yellow and black background on the first volume cover looks like Persona 4 ahah.

In terms of story though, I think the style is kind of similar to Durarara. Instead of Ikebukuro, Occultic;Nine is set in Kichiouji, and there are POV switches between the 9 protagonists to get different perspectives and events.
