Zankyo no Terror (a.k.a Terror in Resonance)
Genre: Psychological thriller
Released: July 5, 2014
The Story so far
The story line in Zanyo no Terror takes place in Tokyo. On this re-imagining of our present times, two young boys unleash a devastating terrorist attack in Tokyo, Japan and just give glimpse of their presence to the public by releasing a mysterious and cryptic video in what becomes a game for them as local authorities are baffled and can't seem to find a culprit, while they plan their next attack. The two boys call themselves "The Sphinx" and are dedicated to "wake the people up" in any possible way.
What to expect
Expect a lot of destruction and a very deep sense of tragedy (Saikano style) with a lot of characters both significant and not, losing friends and family as "The Sphinx" spread chaos across Tokyo. This is one of those series that will have many viewers silently rooting for the good guys, but with a very loud sense of sympathy for the villains as many people felt in series like Deathnote and Code Geass which feature byronic heroes.
Another thing to expect of this series is a big picture that goes further than the two boys with their rebellious intentions, sort of like something more powerful than them, pulling the strings and controlling them by using their own ideologies.
Wrapping it up
This is one series that is very worthy of watching, especially if you liked any of the other series that were previously mentioned. It is also good to watch if you want something a little closer to reality and our own times, as the themes touched by this series seem to be just that. Get ready for some tragic drama, conspiracy, destruction and detective styled investigations with Zankyo no Terror.
