Occultic Nine

One of the series I mentioned wanting to watch in my fall 2016 anime post was Occultic Nine —  it finally launched and I got to watch the first episode. What I wrote then pretty much stands. The one aspect of the show that really turns me off is the inclusion of a character with ridiculously large breasts, that just makes it embarrassing to watch (even though she’s played for laughs). It’s a shame, because there’s a lot to like here. The animation is incredibly slick, and the overall art direction reminds of what we’ve seen with the Persona 5 game. And the setup for the show is quite interesting, following a guy who runs a blog about paranormal activities, making a living from the ads, and how he’s trying to get more traffic to his site by finding more interesting mysteries to cover. I’m going to watch the next episode at least, and see if it manages to not dwell too much on that assistant character and her breasts.
