This anime. The feels were so real for me. I really didn’t cry at all *cough*. So wow… uhm this one I had for a long time in my list, but I forgot. When I wanted to watch something with a good story I came onto this, because psychological anime are either very bad or very good. This one… well you already know. So I didn’t know anything about thrillers and stuff, because I’m a scaredy cat so most of the time I’m avoiding them. This one, wasn’t really that scary. And I noticed while researching for a bit that it’s acutually for 17+ and I didn’t see it. lol. But here is the review before I’m saying too much.
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.
So yeah my reaction to the 1st episode was just only: ‘wow….’ Seriously I had such a shock what happened there. I was really interested and watched it in one go! The story was very original and I liked it so much. The plot was so good, it wasn’t predicatable at all. I had seen some of this before too, but never really realised it was this anime. Then the end was so sad. Stupid Ninjas cutting onions. Well, the voice actors have done very good in the past and now too. I have watched many of the animes of the MC’s. The art was also very nice. It really had a good effect on the serious stuff. So I give this one a 9/10, because it’s just good and one of my favorites. It’s just very good in general. I recommend it if you wanna have serious and original story. Who don’t mind a bit of tragedy. So about the 17+ mark… haha I just ignored it and I had no problems at all. I don’t think it’s scary, but just very mature.
Well, this one is longer than I thought and I have no problems at all with it. So this was it for this week. Hope you consider watching it or have watched it before and see you next week.
