Shibazaki, the fucking king of lore.
Still puzzled by Sphinx's motives. I still do not like either of them yet.

Well finally a show where the police are no slouches.

2-1 in favor of Sphinx, but the police are finally on the board.

I love those kind of mindgames and riddles. Awesome, so far.

This feels like a nice chess game...getting a semi-Death Note feel from it.

When Shibazaki was described as a second-generation atomic bomb victim, I immediately thought of the generational differences in Japan and their relation to modern day terrorism. I could only imagine being in Japan during a terrorist attack knowing that Hiroshima and Nagasaki only happened 70+ years ago. Seems like a lot, but when you think about the generations, it is not that much. And super scary!

Considering that this is supposed to be a thriller, I'm not really feeling too thrilled. There's no emotional investment, but maybe that's intentional? I'm a little bit confused as to what I'm intended to feel. In any case, the characters don't feel "real" to me, they're not much more than mere pixels on the screen.

That said, there is some enjoyment to be gained. The series so far looks great, I especially love the high contrast in the color values (basically, the show would look great even in black and white), and the scenes in general have a really good flow. Kanno Yoko's score is a bit overbearing sometimes but satisfies with its quality as usual.

There certainly is something addicting about the series. By this point, at least some comprehensible narrative has taken shape, with the unnerving flashbacks to the orphanage, implied to have been part of a scientific experiment, later gone wrong. I don't know why this show isn't tagged as mystery instead of thriller because that would describe its appeal a lot better, in my opinion. I'll continue to watch just to see what kind of nonsense (in the best sense of the word) the show has in store.

Another great episode, we finally, got some background on Shibazaki and why he ended up in the archives.

Very interesting so far. The contrasting personalities between Nine and Twelve give their motives a fascinating spin.
I have nothing to say about Lisa, though. I can only hope she starts getting more involved.

The flashback gave me a sick feeling. I don't know what they went through, but it doesn't seem pleasant at all.

So far so good. Time to watch the next episode :)
