Here is the anime’s announcement promotional video:

The Occultic;Nine light novel series began in late 2014 where a total of 2 volumes have been release. The series is also being adapted into a monthly manga in Kodansha’s good! Afternoon magazine by Ganjii. The first volume of the manga released on the 7th of April this year.

Here is the series synopsis from MAL:

The “paranormal science” story follows nine idiosyncratic individuals, linked by the “Chōjō Kagaku Kirikiri Basara” occult summary blog run by 17-year-old second-year high school student Yūta Gamon. Little incongruities that occur around these nine eventually lead to a larger, unimaginable event that may alter what is considered common sense in this world.

A TV anime adaptation of Occultic;Nine is being produced for a 2016 broadcast. Further information about the anime will be revealed at a later date.
