Synopsis

Life’s mundane routine is brought to a screeching halt in modern Japan with the advent of anonymous bombings. These terrorist attacks send police and the public into a state of emergency, and the only clues are untraceable videos uploaded on the internet by self-named Sphinx. Parallel to these events, two young men named Nine and Twelve instate themselves among the local school population.

Zankyou no Terror follows Nine and Twelve as they send Japan plummeting into chaos with their goal being to help "wake up the world". It explores the psychological and physical repercussions of buried secrets, all too easily identified within today’s world. There are no "good guys" and "bad guys". There are those seeking change, those trying to prevent exposing their dirty little secrets, and overworked police officers stuck in the middle trying to protect the citizens.

Background

Episodes 1 and 2 were previewed at a screening in Los Angeles at Anime Expo on July 5, 2014. Regular broadcasting began on July 11, 2014.

*SPOILER FREE REVIEW*

I remember watching the PV for this anime endless times a month before the summer season had began. I was really looking forward to this show, as I'm sure many others were. Despite my hype over Zankyou no Terror, all I had expected was a simple action anime about two teenage boys who happen to be very close friends blowing sh*t up! Oh boy, was what I had expected ever wrong, but I'm glad I was wrong because this show is one hell of an emotional and action-packed ride.

Oh, Zankyou no Terror... How much did I praise you during the early few episodes, but how could I know that you will turn out how you did. Zankyou no Terror (Terror in Resonance or Terror in Tokyo in English) was one of my most anticipated titles of the season and I am sure I was not alone. The show also gained a bit of a hype because of the famous Shinichiro Watanabe (Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop), who I am in all honesty no big fan of, but okay, let's get this review started. Just make sure that I will NOT be able to hide read more

In a season filled with giant robots, teenage dramas and supernatural violence, Zankyou no Terror stands out from the usual crowd with its focus on the rarely explored subject matter of terrorism. Shinichirō Watanabe, renowned director of Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, and Kids on the Slope, once again teams up with Yoko Kanno and the newly formed Studio MAPPA to delivers one of the highlights of the summer season 2014.

I'll start this review by saying I started watching this show with no prior knowledge about the writers and the premise, so I had no idea what to expect. What I found was a mature and compelling story that kept me entertained throughout the season.

Even in such an amazing season, it managed to shine through as the anime that defined the summer of 2014. Even compared against such great shows as Gekkan shoujo, Tokyo Ghoul, RE:Hamatora and Aldnoah;Zero, Zankyou no Terror stood on top.

Story: 10/10

There are many stories taht focus on anti-heroes and terrorism, yet none have come close to the level of maturity found read more
