First Impressions – Zankyou no Terror

summer14-outcast-zankyou

A resonating terror raises its head.

spring14-kyoRemember my fangirling about this on our Summer preview? Well, if you didn’t, you should because I raved about it too much for my own good. When I have this much of expectation from a series, it either takes a nosedive like Guilty Crown or surprises me like Ping Pong the Animation, completely out of the left field. Let’s see how ZnT aka Terror in Resonance fairs with us terror-loving ladies. :3

————————————–

spring14-karaThe three of us tag team on a show about cannibalism and now terrorists. I don’t know if any other season after this will ever match this one. xD Anyways, I tend to like the anime that Watanabe directs, so I was pretty excited about this. Luckily, it didn’t let me down.

————————————–

spring14-ocI can’t think of anyone else I’d want to write about teenage terrorists with. :3 Especially a show like this with such big names. You just know it’s gonna be good. But let’s just make sure to see if it lived up to our expectations or if it was a total flop.

————————————–

Trigger on Tokyo

Kyokai // Let me set the mood with the opening theme Trigger by Yuki Ozaki (Galileo Galilei), to set things in motion. After a long time, we have an anime series, which has an actual presence of environment and location. You can dub it under scenery porn or movie-like camera angles but from the first to last frame of the premiere episode, I was fascinated by the happenings on my screen. The amount of detail is brilliant from the snowy field of Aomori to the busy streets of Tokyo, every frame is minutely checked and drawn to match reality. Backgrounds are not just static frames but alive with flickering light and details. Our main cast has very distinct character designs suiting their personalities and their eyes… I really love the eyes. In some scenes, they don’t even have to speak because their eyes do the talking, like when Nine looked down upon Lisa icily on their first silent encounter and Twelve looking up from the stairwell at Lisa almost threateningly persuasive to hang on to his plushie. Really, along with the characters, I have to say that the atmosphere and background details play a very important role in the overall setting.

 ZankyouNoTerror1-00020ZankyouNoTerror1-00093

As well, the CGI work is top-notch, I mean, you can’t just re-create a localized version 9/11 without detail. It would look like a house of falling cards but the Tokyo destruction in ZnT literally gave me the heebeejeebees. I was starkly reminded of the news footage of the 9/11 destruction and the long discussions on the terror connection later on. I am sure the makers of this series added that accident specifically to trigger the audience’s switch of interest and curiosity. After all, the theme is about pulling a trigger on the world and our Sphinx boys are on a mission alright.

Meet the Sphinx

Karakuri// Nine and Twelve seem to have quite the history to them. Both characters are pretty enigmatic now, but it’s definitely a fact that they have a shady past at some facility and they’ve seen other kids die before. As for the present, that they seem like friends (or at the very least, partners), despite having totally contrasting personalities. From what we’ve seen between the two of them, they work really well together, and are pretty in sync while carrying out their plans. Obviously they’ve known each other for a long time, but this seems to go a bit beyond that, since they really seem to trust one another. Maybe this is because whatever they’re trying to accomplish is really important to the two of them, but really, their teamwork is impressive. They managed to take out a building. Maybe there were other people helping them behind the scenes, but at the site itself, it looks like there were only two of them carrying out the plan.

ZankyouNoTerror1-00017ZankyouNoTerror1-00090

Kyokai // I wonder, what kind of degrees and access you would require to get into a Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Facility? Is that even possible or one of our young terrorists indeed has all of the required credentials? Even if it was done with a system hack, our protagonists definitely have a strong plan from how they have just mingled in the crowd without any issue. Of course, Twelve is a bit spontaneous but he does balance out Nine’s cold behaviour. From whatever background we have gathered in terms of their story, they are no ordinary kids and few of the last survivors of whatever dodgy experimental facility they belonged to. I have a feeling that the VON Nine spray-painted on the nuclear facility’s floor is connected to their roots as if they are providing a hint. It might be a code name because in terms of definition it is either a name addition (like de in French) or a German preposition, which means of or from. Both seem meaningless for now but we shall see.

Coming from a mysterious background, and my little knowledge of Egypt mythology does make me curious on their decision to take Sphinx as their name. Sphinx is famous in history for being the guardian of the Great Pyramids in Giza and overall being a mysterious creature, who guards great secrets. This is even true in Greek mythology, according to which a Sphinx guarded the city of Thebes and asked the entrants riddles for passage. In recent era, the symbol has been adopted into freemason architecture again as a symbol to guard their mysteries. All of this definitely fits the MO of our young terrorists. It still needs to be seen that their video message was actually a riddle or more of a prediction to deepen their image under the shroud of enigma.

It Gets Worse

Overcooled// Not the show, but Lisa’s situation! Lisa is the target of some rather severe bullying. Not the kind where you get viciously beat up after class, but the kind where you get nasty things whispered into your ear every waking moment and get pressured into doing terrible things to amuse the bullies. Since there are no bruises or cuts, it’s easier to get away with this sort of thing. However, it really messes with people. Lisa is so used to being bullied that she doesn’t even stand up for herself when Twelve is basically asking her if she’s in trouble. She has given up retaliating and simply waits for her torture to be over every day. The most she does to fight for her survival is dashing to the woman’s washroom to lock herself in a stall.

ZankyouNoTerror1-00060ZankyouNoTerror1-00071

Even her family life appears a bit ragged. Her mom seems nice enough, but Lisa clearly dislikes her for some reason. Maybe it’s because she’s super clingy and sends her strings of texts that Lisa never responds to. That’s not the worst thing in the world, but Lisa seems to despise it. Maybe later on they’ll tell us what’s up there. But based on what we know, Lisa gets no peace at home or at school. It’s no wonder she has dead fish eyes that remind the terrorist duo of people back at a rather ominous looking “facility.”

The only time Lisa fights for her own survival – really and truly – is when she’s asked to become part of the terrorist plot. Only then does she make a conscious decision to join them. She doesn’t know the consequences or what’s going on entirely, but it’s a step towards her becoming a stronger person who can defend herself. It’s a chance for her to grow…which is weird because they’re a bunch of terrorists and this is pretty much a horrible situation no matter how you look at it. Now she can go to jail! Oh Lisa…you really just can’t catch a break, can you?

Isn’t the ending theme by Aimer Dare ka, Umi o, beautiful? I’ve been her fan since I first heard her in the ending of No.6. Even her recent work in Gundam OVAs is quite good so do check her out. Besides the amazing theme songs, the music by Yoko Kanno is spot-on as usual. It’s not out of this world musically, if you compare it to Sakamichi no Apollon, Cowboy Bebop or even Escaflowne, but a brilliant soundtrack fitting the story. Just hear lolol and you’ll understand what I’m getting at. It really gets you into the mood of the story and throughout the first episode, every sound and every frame connected to give the audience a fantastic visual experience. Watanabe has definitely done it again and I hope the quality remains consistent throughout the run of this series.

Being a seiyuu fanatic, I have to talk about the main cast, who have two relatively new names performing quite well. We have already seen Kaito Ishikawa make waves with his main roles in Gargantia, Tokyo Ravens, Nagi no Asukara and Haikyuu! but Saito Souma is the one who has surprised me the most with his variation from a perky teenager to a dangerous sadistic character as Twelve. This is his first main role besides playing the MC in Akame ga Kill this season. Same for Atsumi Tanezaki, who voices Lisa, her first MC role besides few of the supporting ones (only Asako in Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun stands out), she has done previously. We still have to see how she will manage the character variations but overall, the cast is pretty strong and I’m already embroiled in the story and their destinies.

Hot damn is this show good. This fantastic first episode has it cemented as my favourite of the season so far. It nails all the action scenes like a Hollywood blockbuster and the interpersonal drama is well thought-out and clever. You can tell everyone’s personality just from the way they move and make facial expressions (or…don’t…in the case of Nine). There’s a lot of love being poured into animating these characters and it seems like we’ll get a lot of interesting development. What’s giving Nine nightmares? Is Twelve actually a super-memorizing genius with a sadistic streak? Will Lisa learn to stand up to bullies? There’s a lot of micro stuff amongst the macro issues of blowing up buildings and running from the cops. Furthermore, the whole concept of making terrorists the main characters instead of the cops is really cool. I don’t know how they’ll convince us that what these guys are doing is “right” or if they’ll even try to do that but I’m super interested to see how these guys carry the show as the antagonists. It’s hard to be a hero when you’re setting up bombs in public places and causing havoc, you know? All in all, this is an amazing show that you would be crazy not to at least try out.

Yes. This was a good start as far as I’m concerned. Here I was expecting a well planned bombing or something (which did kind of happen), but the addition of Lisa’s character was what really pulled me in to the episode, surprisingly. She seems like a normal enough girl, but the fact that she’s bullied and uncomfortable with her mother for some reason makes it seem like she might be more okay with joining the terrorist’s side of things than if she didn’t seem so unsatisfied with life. It will be interesting to see where her character goes from here, since she was obviously cooperated here to avoid dying. Will she end up becoming just as good of a teammate as Touji and Arata are to each other, or will she just screw them over? Having her character mixed in with Touji and Arata’s schemes should be interesting. Whatever their schemes are. Ah, so much to look forward to. The animation was pretty solid, and I’m really fond of both the OP and the ED songs too. The ED especially. I’m definitely sticking around to see where this goes.

It’s normal to take credit after a terrorist attack and it seems our protagonists will do so soon.

    “The difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter is a matter of perspective: it all depends on the observer and the verdict of history.”

    “I’ve never met anyone who wanted to be a terrorist. They are desperate people.”
    ― John Perkins

    The one word I could think of after finishing this, was….Riveting. This series had me so enthralled from beginning to end. I was amazed at the animation, the writing, the music, the characters (well, Lisa needs some work ), it was all really good.

    When I first heard of this show, I just couldn’t see how it was going to work. Telling the story of, and essentially glorifying the exploits of a couple of terrorists, especially ones that are working on the scale of 9/11 is extremely hard and I didn’t see how you could do it. You had to somehow make the audience connect with these main characters, and it’s pretty hard to connect to someone who would kill innocents in such a way just to get their point across.

    However, somehow, this show managed to do that. To see the background of Nine and Twelve and to see what they can do, you get the idea that they are the product of some sort of government covered-up project that involved experimentation on children. This, and the fact that you can see both do have a sense of morals to them, gives the characters the depth and sympathy they need for the audience to connect. Both 9 and 12 are extremely smart, almost to a superhuman degree. Nine’s ability to see every corridor of the building in his mind, and Twelve’s way of remembering the name of every single person he meets. You just want to know what happened to these kids and what kind of cover-up are they trying to unveil to the world with their attacks?

    Also, another writer pointed out that this pair are the kind of criminals that the police fear. They have the classic pair profile: one a leader the other a follower, one depressive one manic, and both in a sort of co-dependent relationship that forms their basis. This is a pair of terrorists that care nothing about trying to keep their identity a secret. They don’t wear gloves, they don’t worry about cameras, they ride their getaway vehicles in busy streets in broad daylight. Even in their YouTube video, they don’t bother to disguise their voices. Nine and Twelve are on a mission and they don’t care about getting caught. They are just that good. They have a cavalier attitude and don’t care who knows it, and they are getting their mission done, from beginning to end. We’re just along for the ride.

    I like the detective already too. He reminds me of the detective in V for Vendetta. As for their new accomplice, Lisa, there’s really not much to her. A bullied girl who seems to have a weird mom that texts her every second. She keeps throwing up and I constantly wonder if she’s either bulimic or pregnant. However, it will be interesting to see how she contributes to the plot.

    This series looks like it’s going to have multiple layers and mysteries and I can’t wait to see where it will go from here.

    • skylion says:

      V for Vendetta: If you are referencing Eric Finch than bravo. But is it Stephen Rea’s character or the much more in depth Finch of the comic? I hope it’s the comic…he was much more interesting despite Rea’s rather wooden performance…he was much more interesting in Lestat.

      • Irenesharda says:

        Sorry, but I haven’t read the graphic novel. I really liked the movie though. I actually liked the actor’s performance, it was my first time seeing him and I thought he did a good job. However, I’m speaking more towards the character himself and that the one in here reminds me of the brilliant detective that’s down on his luck, and struggles to crack the case, but ends up admiring his adversary in the end.

        However, I can also see this detective ending up like Gerard from The Fugitive as well. So, we’ll have to see how he is fleshed out in later episodes.

    • Kyokai says:

      Even when I ranted on about this show nonstop on our Summer Preview, at the back of my mind, I was almost scared if this thing flopped, which won’t be the first time a much hyped anime nosedived due to some weak link. However, from the execution of the first episode, I really do hope the momentum continues.

      I pretty much agree with most of your observations. Our duo possess a lot of qualities and we have just scratched the surface with them, on what’s really their deal. In terms of Twelve, it’s not about meeting people that he remembers their name but actually his database of information. From what we witnessed in preview with spy cams being monitored by Nine, these kids are geniuses and hacking into a school system to get into student records and even inserting their own data as transfer students is child’s play for them.

      I like the oyaji detective as well. His shogi mind will definitely come into play for picking up hints for catching Sphinx, if they are every successful that is. Btw, V for Vendetta is one of my favourite movies of all time (Hugo Weaving did an amazing job on it), not to mention the amazing writing of that V phrased introduction. I do remember the detective’s likeable character and I hope we come to know more about our old Detective and his chase of Sphinx.

  2. Joojoobees says:

    I don’t think it is a big surprise that this one turned out well. I did quite enjoy the action sequence in the beginning — an excellent way to introduce us to the story. Nevertheless, my expectations are so high for this series that it is tough to say much more than, “Yup, it’s off to an excellent start … as expected.”

    • BlackBriar says:

      The success in its surprise is that the material is completely original. Because there’s nothing being based which suppresses any spoilers, we could be in for one hell of a ride.

    • Kyokai says:

      @ JJB, Indeed and now let’s just hope the excellence continues.

      @ BB, I really can’t wait for the next episode. It’s been a while that I felt like this for a series. I think the last one was Fate/Zero.

    • Overcooled says:

      Even when there’s an all-star team, sometimes you have to be wary. Remember Guilty Crown….

  3. sonicsenryaku says:

    Great start to an intriguing Anime. It looks like Lisa has extreme anxiety problems; I would have to guess that she might have a bit of Agoraphobia (not the part where she fears the possibility of having a panic attack or being in situations that may cause panic attacks, but just being in open areas). It would explain why she always tries to lock herself in a bathroom, and limps her way through the mall (kinda like Rika and Yozora from Haganai). Between 9 and 12, although nine seems to be the brains and has that cold demeanor, 12 seems more dangerous

    • Namika says:

      12 is more like a yandere type, seems careless and friendly, but in reality is the cruelest and the most cold-blooded thing. I like him *~*

    • Kyokai says:

      It’s too early to theorize about Lisa but yes, Agoraphobia could be one of them for why she’s the way she is. I really am curious on why she’s so delicate and can’t speak her mind. That bento did not seem cold, rather it looked like her mom spent some time preparing it so why throw it away? I’m sure there is a story here and I can only hope that she’s not a whiner.

      Twelve is so LETHAL! Sure, he looks pretty friendly with his spontaneous nature but his eyes… are almost like of a predator when he’s in the mood. Not to mention the variation in his voice. That video scene when he comes close to the camera and speaks playfully, it was again very creepy.

      Yep, Namika, I like him too just because he’s a cruelly grey character.

    • Overcooled says:

      Agoraphobia is an interesting guess. Definitely hard to tell in one episode for sure. Personally, I just think she’s a regular girl under stress from bullying. I think the reason she runs into washrooms is to avoid bullying – a common habit of victims in pretty much any anime or TV show. She walks around tentatively because she’s afraid of running into her bullies as well, not because she’s afraid of open spaces.

      It’s all very normal behaviour for someone being forced to jump into pools and such on a regular basis.

      • sonicsenryaku says:

        Hmmm, I like your take on Lisa; one thing that seems sure to me is that she has major anxiety, and whatever it is, being at home must be worse for her because she’d rather be in a place she’s still uncomfortable in either way than go home. One thing is for certain though; like Rika and Yozora, Lisa doesnt like being in public

  4. zztop says:

    Von means ‘Hope’ in the Icelandic language.

    • BlackBriar says:

      Ironic for a duo apparently set on causing mass despair.

    • Kyokai says:

      Yeah, I read that came from the OST title. Let’s see how it plays out with the Sphinx plan.

  5. skylion says:

    One. The brilliant vocal of Yuki Ozaki, Galileo Galilei being a long time favorite of mine, and this piece is like nothing he has done before. I’m still pissed he didn’t have a hand in the music of Galilei Donna, as it would have elevated that show a bit.

    Two. I am very uncomfortable with the idea of teenage terrorists. Which is what the show is very much driving at. Face it. Mecha anime is about child soldiers in it’s own unique way…so stretch that out to this.

    Three. I am wary of director auteur pieces at this point. Space Dandy would be a good show, if it wasn’t for the fact that is was an anime showpiece about anime. It’s kinda clumsy. But his has that guy in his stride. Watanabe is getting serious again.

    • Kyokai says:

      I don’t think even Yuki Ozaki’s vocals could save the accident that was Galilei Donna. Nobody could really save it. >>;

      Well, it’s not going to be the first time. We have already seen it quite clearly in Eden of the East and so many supernatural themed anime. But yes, one doesn’t have to like the idea but I have a feeling that it creates intrigue. Imagine what could have happened in their past that pushed them to go nuclear on Tokyo? And I’m pretty sure this is not going to be their last attack. This is just the start.

      I actually like Space Dandy, it’s nothing critically acclaimed stuff rather mindless fun. As you said, a showpiece for people who are not used to the deep layers of this medium. A welcome to them of sorts. Watanabe’s profile is quite prolific so I always look forward to whenever he does something new.

  6. BlackBriar says:

    The Metanorn ladies sure are covering serious stuff this season. Keep it up!

    I can only describe this as excellent, easily ranking in my most watched anime list for the season. From the premise alone that gave a serious vibe, I had hope this would be something unique and that hope proved well placed. It’s not every day there would a story centered about terrorists. The flashbacks lead me to believe they were orphans before being taken into that mysterious facility. Otherwise, there would’ve been a search on them. Given what they are now, there’s sure to be a bitter end for the path they’ve taken.

    The events portrayed here are so plausible it’s scary. The bombing of the building and debris scattered around the panicking masses. It brought back morbid memories of 9/11. A great deal of wonder is on what fate will hold for Lisa who had the misfortune of getting forced into corner. I take her lack of aggression against Nine and Twelve for her predicament as somewhat a sign of gratification. No anger at all, so there must be a lot of internal suffering.

    Story aside, another winner is the animation. The snowmobile scene was fluid and beautiful to watch that I watched it over a couple of times. Grade “A” work, indeed. The next episode can’t come fast enough.

    • Kyokai says:

      It’s quite amazing on how productive we have been lately. We are pretty busy generally but I do appreciate the entire team’s effort in working on all the FIs quite quickly and religiously. Out of the 34 shows airing this season, we have already covered 30, that’s quite a feat.

      In terms of Nine and Twelve’s roots, I’m reminded of a line in trailer, where they said that they are people who weren’t supposed to exist. Even on their numeric names, it is quite plausible that they were part of a governmental (military?), experiment of creating super soldier/spies? Really, there can be so many wild guesses here.

      And Lisa’s predicament is quite unique because she was literally discovered by Twelve and then embroiled in their plan. I hope in the midst of all the chaos, she finds her voice and self, which she somehow has lost due to whatever misfortune fell on her.

      I can’t wait for the next episode either. The scenery porn was excellent, almost similar to watching a new age hollywood movie in parts.

      • skylion says:

        …meanwhile the guys cover the other more “girly” shows…

        • BlackBriar says:

          That is the circumstance going on here. Oh, the immense irony!

          • Kyokai says:

            Hey! You guys are forgetting Love Stage, DMMD, Sengoku Basara and Free! where fangirliness is topnotch! :P

            • Karakuri says:

              What are you talking about, Kyo. Sengoku Basara is THE manliest thing in existence. xD

            • BlackBriar says:

              Hmm.. I guess there is some balance after you mentioned those. The guys can save face now. ;)

            • Kyokai says:

              Kara, I meant, the shows which WE fangirl over! Who gives a shit about moe shows… Trolloolll xD

  7. Di Gi Kazune says:

    The Sarin episode will be banned in Japan.

    • Kyokai says:

      Why? I’m pretty sure they will be adding it at some point. After all, the disclaimer clearly states, the events and characters are all fictitious. ;)

      • BlackBriar says:

        That won’t stop a bunch of uptight prudes in power in their attempt to continue unnecessary restrictions on practically everything.

        • Di Gi Kazune says:

          Then they will have to be… *persuaded* with some *firm* and *sparkling* *persuasion*.

          • Kyokai says:

            Let’s get some mahou shoujos involved in this thing! xD

            • Di Gi Kazune says:

              “Mr. President, if you don’t want those pictures of you with that young underaged cheerleader released, you will sign the bill into law.”

              *puts down phone*

              “And after he signs it… release those pictures anyway” :D

              5 stars if you can guess where those quotes came from.

            • BlackBriar says:

              @Di Gi Kazune: I remember something similar from Tomorrow Never Dies. It was said by Jonathan Pryce’s character, Elliot Carver.

            • Di Gi Kazune says:

              @BB 5 stars! :D

              Acceptable answer would also be Rupert Murdoch. (since obviously Carver was based off him)

  8. Namika says:

    Wow. This was pretty amazing. The art was so detailed and those eyes! The expressions were so brilliant…
    I don’t know what connection can there be between their past in that facility type thing and the terrorism.
    I feel like the female MC will be irritating as hell. Though I hope not..

    • Kyokai says:

      Yep, pretty amazing start indeed. In terms of theory, I think the VON word has strong connection to their past. Maybe an operation codename or some happening that destroyed their fellow kids? Whatever it is, the higher ups do not look happy on recent events so Sphinx has definitely ruffled a lot of feathers. And I hope Lisa doesn’t become a pain rather a gateway in understanding these complicated boys. Can’t wait!

  9. JPNIgor says:

    At the start I was wondering if the two of them were some kind of aliens… They kind of give a feel of being it, though.

    And twelve’s smiles are scary ‘-’ “It’s bright as the sun”, she said. Ok…

    Both the ending and the opening kind of weirded me out. It’s not like they are bad, but when the ending credits rolled and I saw that Aimer sang that song, I couldn’t believe. The last song I heard by her was “Anata ni Deawanakereba” for Natsuyuki Rendezvous, so it’s very different… But I will get to like them at some point, I’m pretty sure.

    • Namika says:

      Aimer’s song was pretty beautiful, wasn’t it?

    • Kyokai says:

      You are not far because they are quite different.

      From what we saw, I swear I think Twelve has split personality. Though, I think he’s more of a bi-polar person due to his mood swings.

      I wish I could link Re: I Am or Star Child songs of Aimer, which she performed for Gundam UC OVAs. They are brilliant and you should get some of her albums (really good stuff). One of the very few Japanese singers who can actually sing in English properly. I’m sure you’ll come to like both themes because they are quite ethereal and fitting to the series.

      • JPNIgor says:

        From what I understood, they are the results of some kind of experience. From which only the two of them escaped alive.

        I’m not sure if he has mood swings. He’s always cheerful and he’s always happy, but sometimes for the right reasons and sometimes for the wrong.

        I tried hard to find those songs. I only found Re: I Am in an unplugged version, but her voice is awesome. I wanted to hear the real thing though. But StarRingChild is beautiful. I wish I had watched Gundam only for these songs, because I’m not a big fan of mechas. I should get one of her albums.

        (I remember watching the PV for Anata ni Deawanakereba and getting embarassed when I noticed it narrated a yuri story ‘-’)

        • Kyokai says:

          Sony Records are really doing their job in taking down all her songs from youtube unless it’s on her official channel. You should definitely get those albums because they are awesome. Btw, get used to yuri, yaoi, bishies and the usual fandom tropes because it all comes natural to Japan! :D

          Check her version of Twinkle twinkle:

          • JPNIgor says:

            Beautiful… She could have sang the entire song, though. And it reminded me of PapaKiki’s characters singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

            And Aimer’s official channel seems to be only for japanese IPs… *sad*

            • Kyokai says:

              It kills me that I can’t preview all her songs but at least maybe that translates into more album sales? I hope so! She has a very promising career ahead of her.

        • Namika says:

          Re:Pray is also a very beautiful song. It’s 29th ending for Bleach.
