That was an intense episode.
I knew that Shibazaki would figure out that it's not the real Sphinx who are doing it.

Can someone explain how the chess game tied into the location of the bomb?

Other than that and 5's awkward english, the episode was pretty fucking intense

Intense stuff. Still don't get how they're allowing Five to do all this shit <_< It's ridiculous that she has this much authority.

Why do people not suspect what 5 is doing though? Assuming everyone in the control room was part of her team, and the security room as well, there are still other authorities present at the airport and also the media/press. What about the armed forces guarding the control room? Has she replaced everyone with her own team? What is her status anyway?

Doesn't it seem weird to anyone that the "head of police" is trying to drive a plane loaded with bomb into the airport?

Too many convenient excuses for my liking

I can see why others think the show started going downhill after Five's introduction. She is such an unpleasing character. The way she talks to others, her design, her voice, everything about her is annoying. Besides, how come Five's stupid plan of putting a bomb in an airplane and piloting it towards the airport was accepted? As the poster above said, it is definitely weird.

On the bright side, it was nice to see Lisa doing something useful for once. Twelve values her life and I think he is going to die or get caught because of her.

7 of 12 episodes watched and I still don't get why this show gets so much praise.

It's probably because you weren't part of the hype. I keep reading that the appeal of this show is the "realism", but I'm not seeing it. So far I dislike a majority of the characters and the situations are so far-fetched and ridiculous it's getting a bit tiring.

Lisa is SO annoying............

Five seems to care only for Nine, not Twelve, wonder why...

And I'm wondering how a psycho like Five is on the supposed 'good' side... Is it trying to criticise the so-called 'good' side (in this case the police and/or F B I???) or something

I'm just annoyed at how Five is allowed to PLANT a BOMB on a passenger jet, remote control the jet with said bomb to a plane gate full of people with 100% intention to have it go off. Also it's like airport security doesn't even exist, and this ain't pre-2001. LOL

Intense episode, but so unrealistic. But w/e, it's just anime.

Damn that was really intense.
Lisa barely got away in time and the bomb was close to blowing up the gate.

Five finds a "weakness" she can use and Shibazaki helps a terrorist :D

I really don't get how Five wasn't arrested by Shibazaki. She was caught in the act of trying to throw an exploding plane into people.
If i was him i would be more worried about putting my handcuffs around her arms instead of looking at the Sphinx guy from the window and worry about him getting away.
At least that guy proved that he prefers bloodless terrorist attempts. She is more dangerous than him so she should be the first priority of arrest at that moment.
Her act was actually worse than anything the Sphinx terrorist did.
It makes no sense.
Also all the people cooperating with her(i mean the Japanese people in the airport tower) didn't know about the bomb in the plane etc and they thought that they were helping her catch terrorist but when they saw the plane exploding and how Shibazaki actually saved people by forcing one of them to reroute the plane they must have realized what was going on and will make good witness against her.
That means they can't just silence Shibazaki and throw him away if he arrested her because he has witness that she was about to kill many people.

Last, even if the Japanese government made some agreement with her, i doubt they are ok with her bombing their bloody airport, killing many citizens and causing a big terrorist incident. So as i see it she is acting behind their backs and if Shibazaki shows them what she did they won't throw him under a bus and try to cover her.

What the hell happened to this series?

How can someone honestly believe they'd be able to get away with demanding a control tower pilot an unmanned plane with a bomb on it underneath an airplane terminal and somehow walk away without getting the death penalty? Why is Shibazaki concerned with Sphinx getting away when he just averted the biggest terrorist attack on Japan period and the culprit is right in front of him? Why is no one arresting this chick? Because she's FBI? I doubt the FBI has any interest in catching two teenagers than they do of backing a psychotic criminal who just attempted to bomb an airport terminal. She would be on a plane back to Guantanamo so fast she wouldn't have any time to creepily molest a schoolgirl's I.D. card.

I had such high hopes but I'd much rather watch Akame than something trying to play itself so straight yet being so incredulously ridiculous. RIP this series.


The thing is that she could make the detective be the crazy one if all the people around her were her people.
Those people could simply testify that she was never actually trying to throw the plane at the airport and have it explode.
The problem is that the people in the airport tower are probably the people working there. So why would they go with her plans and why wouldn't they testify against her after they saw the damn plane exploding. Also why didn't the detective try to arrest her? Those two things are what the show seriously messed up.
As about the FBI not covering her. I think that's more an assumption. We don't know what they are willing to cover in return for something else. The FBI may well be willing to cover her. The problem is why would the Japanese government accept anything the FBI will try to do after seeing she's a loose canon that is even more dangerous than the terrorist they are trying to catch.

That Five bitch really piss me off!
Like how the hell can she do all those stuff?! She is with the FBI, but is planning all these terrorist acts, why no one around her stops her?!
Like on the control tower, they just stood there, "It is fine to make the plan with a bomb crash into 106 gate". WTF?!

Aside that, good anime, and good episode.

I don't like Five but her character is very interesting. She is a perfect rival for Sphinx.

Poor Lisa, she was pulled in this history and now she collects the consequences. Five has got Lisa's student ID. She is not made for missions like that..
But I love Lisa x Twelve !

For the first time, the police has of to cooperate with the terrorists, it was the backup plan, and it worked !
But Shibasaki must be now frustrated.. x)

Well that was an intense episode. Chess is fine and all if you want to show how "smart" your show is, but somehow I don't really get how they were playing. Like the codes that Five sent were pieces and locations, but how does Nine specify which piece he's moving whenever he goes to a location?


^^^^ Thank god i wasn't the only one. those locations made no sense since there wasn't really any 'pieces'.

Exactly my thoughts here... This show started pretty strong, but now it's going to a cheesy direction... Unfortunately

Yeah... I feel like this show is trying to test our intelligence.
I'm amazed with the amount of bullshit in these last episodes.

All that time I was 100% sure that she was bluffing about the bomb because, and I thought to myself: "There's is no fucking way that US Special Police can go to Japan and start blowing civilians up for NO FUCKING REASON". They were not even attempting to arrest them when they were sprinting through the airport like it's no big deal. Oh but... They were having a rough time trying to play imaginary "chess". jeeez So fucking pretentious... YES anime creator. U sooooo smaaart! HIGHFIVE ;D

Zankyou no Terror? Nah... More like: Zankyou no Burrshit (Yes the engrish was unbereable to listen).

So first they're throwing some retarded chess game at my face and now they're expecting me to accept the fact that Five was allowed to plant a [i]fucking bomb[/b] on a plane?

She's basically just doing what Twelve and Nine are doing, except that it's about ten times worse since she actually IS trying to kill civilians in order to outwit Sphinx... are they seriously trying to make me believe that the FBI would let that psycho bitch handle the investigation, let alone HIRE her?

This anime went from "pretty good" to "full blown bullshit" in just two episodes

FUCK YOU FIVE AND FUCK YOU WATANABE FOR EXPECTING ME TO ACCEPT THIS BULLSHIT

Interesting twist on the story. Still unaware of my opinion of it, but I can definitely give credit to the writers and animators. Definitely sadistic and I hate it's reference to terrorism. But at the same time, each episode just leads on to another.

Would the police really allow FBI and a random researcher to blow up an airplane where innocent people could die? Sounds like the conspiracy theories of 9/11.

I would have liked to see the effects of the shockwave generated by the explosion but it still looked pretty alright....

Five is such a campy villain, good God. Han Megumi is fun to listen to but the character doesn't leave her with much to work with, unfortunately.

I guess the nonsense I was waiting for did come, but not the good kind of nonsense. I expected more explosions, but I absolutely did not expect the airport chess. The narm was real.

the introduction of five has really made the plot of this anime go into ultra tinfoil hat conspiracy land. I mean how the hell does she have the authority to crash a plane into a terminal or hijack all the monitors (which no one seems to pay attention to). Overall if the writing gets this bad in the coming episodes the show will most certainly go from an 8 to a 6 for me.
And god help us if we get more engrish.
I've been here way too long...

Excellent episode. I'm a sucker for these kinds of things, so I love how the bomb's last 47 seconds happened in real time.

The only beef i have is the Engrish, but hey, nothing is ever perfect.

How exactly is he playing chess with her? And there's no telling where a checkmate will happen before a game. Ridiculous. Whoever made this is a complete patzer.

Also weren't they ready to kill Lisa in the beginning? That was all for fun? Now they're heros. What happened to their evilness?

I am finding this anime quite enjoyable, which is strange as it does not tick most of my usual boxes.

The characters, music and story are all pretty good but not outstanding. And yet I am watching each episode very quickly and am excited to see the next one already.

My only flaw is how quickly the detective solves all the riddles. He feels overpowered.
