A nameless girl with a mysterious past is chosen to join the crew of Norn: a flying ship whose mission is to maintain peace throughout their world. As she adjusts to the wonders aboard the ship, with its tiered gardens, crystal waters, and highly-gifted crew, she finds that each discovery seems to yield more questions than answers. Even more mysterious, she learns that each member aboard Norn has one thing in common: they wield otherworldly “special abilities” similar to her own powers.

FIRST EPISODE IMPRESSIONS. Well, I was initially pretty pumped for this, because I checked out some of the play-throughs of the PS Vita game a while back (and I liked what I saw), but that excitement settled down when I began to see the signs of the usual reverse harem that I can only call a "guilty pleasure"... BAD SIGNS: 1. The protag is obviously very naïve, just like almost any other reverse harem protag. She's already gotten into one dumb situation in this first episode, so she’ll likely stumble into many more, but she will never stop being kawaii as hell about it. Lord knows, not even One-Punch Man could punch the kawaii out of her; I just wish she didn't have (what seems to be) a shriveled pinto bean for brain. Why can’t a harem of guys be attracted to a girl’s outstanding bravery and/or intelligence or something? Is that too much to ask? Also, I just wanted to add that she is (to my annoyance) talented in her very own language of jumbled "shrieks" of wonder/surprise (I don't know what else to call the subtle noises she makes sometimes instead of talking). 2. The characters we were introduced to seemed to be following the usual tropes (I could be wrong about this, but I'm 80% sure I'm right). The grumpy shut-in guy will probably end up being my favorite, as I couldn't really say he fit into a common trope. I also think that I'll like the blue-haired guy, even though we only got a short glimpse of him (I think his name is Akito?), because his hair is friggin' majestic. Not Aoba (DMMd) majestic, but majestic nonetheless. PRO: I really do love the art and character designs; everything and everyone in the anime is beautiful so far, ESPECIALLY the protag! I just love her hair and eyes ^_^ I also like the garden-like spaceship setting. It’s a nice change from the school setting of other reverse harems. SUMMARY OF FIRST EPISODE IMPRESSIONS: Even though it might not sound like it, I really do enjoy reverse harems (even if they're haunted by the same recurring pattern), so I'll probably like Norn9... I just wish it was something I could be proud of loving, that's all. Who knows, maybe it will shatter my now lower expectations by the end? We'll just have to see :) Note: If you’re really craving a new reverse harem this season, I think Prince of Stride will turn out to be a better choice. Also, this is my first ever review, so don’t judge meee (at least, not too hard). I would, however, appreciate helpful feedback on how to make any future reviews better. I hope you have a nice rest of your day, stranger!
Original review is below. New Review After finishing it I decided, it's not good. It had an interesting start, but it did end up being a short anime and the story just didn't fit well. There were too many things crammed in and it didn't really make sense. A lot of animes this season seemed promising and most ended up disappointing. I don't reccomment bothering with this. The ending is too far out too. Original Review I just sort of stumbled on to this anime with no real expectations and absolutely no clue what I watching (since neither this site nor the site I was watching it on gave an informitive summary.....). So far so good. I really hope this isn't a 12 episode anime though because it won't be able to develop and finish in just 12 episodes. First three episdoes are interesting though. I still don't entirely understand what is going on, but the characters are diverse and there is a bit of mystery behind each of them which is being discovered. The main focus right now appears to be the relationships between each of the twelve individuals on this "ship" thing that floats in the sky. Since it is only subbed, I was kind of planning on having it go on in the background as noise and paying half attention to it figuring it wasn't going to be interesting but it piqued my curiosity and I ended up paying attention it and enjoying it. I am excited to see what will happen next. I definitely reccomend.
