If you’ve watched Occultic;Nine then you don’t need to read this. You already know why it’s on the list. This show looked interesting. The animation was great looking; there was an interesting body of characters. It deals with the supernatural. There are a lot of visually interesting things. None of that helped the piss poor story.
What’s it about? I don’t know. Some guy gets killed, and the murderer involves a few random people. Others get involved because… still trying to figure that one out. The show bounces around constantly and never establishes a clear view of the plot. It attempts to hold your interest with gore, but even that seemed generic to me. That and no one could have a key for a tooth and still be able to talk, eat and not complain of the constant pain… from the infection, they’d have in their jaw.
Two other annoyances, the main character’s dialogue, is sped up, and it’s super annoying. It made it seem like a comedy and maybe the show was trying to be a horror supernatural with comedic elements. Even writing that I know it's not a good idea, so I don’t know why they proceeded the way they did. The other annoyance is the size of one female character’s boobs. They were astronomical in size and felt like a pathetic attempt at fan service or at the very least a straightforward way to sell statues if the show got popular. Which it didn’t. They even had to redo some elements from the first three episodes… which is never a good thing, nor is this show any good. Don’t watch it; it’ll ruin your day.
