Painted in red, the word "VON" is all that is left behind after a terrorist attack on a nuclear facility in Japan. The government is shattered by their inability to act, and the police are left frantically searching for ways to crack down the perpetrators. The public are clueless—until, six months later, a strange video makes its way onto the internet. In it, two teenage boys who identify themselves only as "Sphinx" directly challenge the police, threatening to cause destruction and mayhem across Tokyo. Unable to stop the mass panic quickly spreading through the city and desperate for any leads in their investigation, the police struggle to act effectively against these terrorists, with Detective Kenjirou Shibazaki caught in the middle of it all.

Zankyou no Terror tells the story of Nine and Twelve, the two boys behind the masked figures of Sphinx. They should not exist, yet they stand strong in a world of deception and secrets while they make the city fall around them, all in the hopes of burying their own tragic truth.

Zankyou no Terror is a short, but action packed show full of mystery, suspense, and a touch of drama.

Animation / Art / General Visuals - 9/10

The show looks pretty great. Scenery is beautiful, and characters detailed and well animated. While not overwhelmingly flashy, it has plenty of awesome looking action.

Sound / Music / Voice Acting - 9/10

Mixed Feelings
I give it 6 for being pretty grounded in reality in terms of events, science and almost everything, but the plot felt somehow lacking.

It could easily have been laid out in about 6-7 episodes instead and it wouldn't have been any worse.

The characters are interesting and relatable, it was interesting when one detective sent the other to buy him hard to find cigarettes so as to protect him from learning dangerous information, it was a cool little detail.

Overall, the plot in general is a bit far-fetched, but for animes where even more outrageous things have happened, it's not that far-fetched, just looking at from the ...

I’m a lover of psychological, dark anime. If you are too, you probably have had Terror in Resonance recommended to you countless times. I finally got around to watching it, and I have to say I have no clue how fellow fans of Death Note, Monster, Code Geass, Paranoia Agent, and more, could EVER see this as even an average anime. Let me explain.

Story - 3
I don’t really know what to review here because this anime doesn’t really have a story. Sure, we follow the terrorists and the police as new bomb threats are made. But none of this seems to actually be leading ...
