In an alternate version of the present, Tokyo has been stricken by a shocking terrorist attack, and the only hint to the identity of the culprit is a bizarre video uploaded to the internet. The police, baffled by this cryptic clue, are powerless to stop the paranoia spreading across the population.

While the world searches for a criminal mastermind to blame for this tragedy, two mysterious children—children who shouldn’t even exist—masterfully carry out their heinous plan. Cursed to walk through this world with the names Nine and Twelve, the two combine to form “Sphinx,” a clandestine entity determined to wake the people from their slumber—and pull the trigger on this world. (Source: FUNimation)


Zankyou no Terror is one of the best Psychological anime I’ve came across lately. There is a small number of Psychological anime and you don’t find them every season. Zankyou no Terror is highly recommended for every anime fan or if you’re trying to get someone into anime. Its also recommend if you want to prove to someone that anime are not for kids. The anime is about 2 teenage boys that are terrorists and they keep challenging the police department in Tokyo. The story is very deep and tragic. The animation is great. The music is quite night.

I believe that the main idea in the anime is about belong. The characters wanted to feel like they belong in this world they wanted to be remembered to be seen. As for the girl I think she was depressed but she herself didn’t even know it. The anime is amazing I highly recommend it like I said earlier. Its one of those Must Watch anime.

Overall Rate: 9/10
