Plot: The story of Norn9 takes place in the future. Guided by one particular song, young elementary school student Suzuhara Sorata, from the Heisei Era, is warped through a time skip to an unfamiliar place that looks much like the towns from the Meiji or Taishou period from his textbooks. In this world, he meets three young ladies and nine young men and joins them on a journey aboard the mysterious Norn ship, a giant globe that floats in midair.
Impression: Norn9 is an adaptation from the ‘Otome Game’ Norn9 and it looks like the story plays out from Koharu’s point of view. Moving on to the anime, right from the first few minutes you get the feeling that you’re stepping into a magical world inside a gentle and innocent teenage girl’s mind. Everything in this anime looks beautiful! The girls are beautiful, the guys are beautiful and the scenery are absolutely stunning! The music is really beautiful and perfect for such a fantasy setting. The first episode didn’t really explain much of the plot except that each of the characters have special abilities and they are in a magical flying ship headed somewhere. So, you’ll be left with a lot of questions at the end of the episode but I guess everything will be explained later. So far, from the first episode, the anime looks interesting. Let us see where this goes.
