Terror in Resonance is a Japanese anime television series produced by the animation studio MAPPA. The series, which premiered in 2014, is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, best known for his work on the critically acclaimed anime series Cowboy Bebop. The show follows the story of two brilliant teenage boys, Nine and Twelve, who use their intelligence and technological skills to carry out terrorist attacks in Tokyo, Japan.

The story begins with a mysterious bombing in Tokyo, which is later revealed to have been the work of Nine and Twelve. The two boys, who go by the names Sphinx 1 and Sphinx 2, create a series of intricate and seemingly random puzzles that they send to the Japanese authorities in order to give them clues about their next target. As the attacks continue, the police struggle to catch the elusive terrorists, and tensions rise as the city of Tokyo is plunged into chaos.

The show follows the story of Detective Kenjirou Shibazaki, who is assigned to the case and becomes determined to stop the bombings and catch Sphinx. Shibazaki is a brilliant detective who is known for his unconventional methods. He is initially skeptical of the government's handling of the case, but as he delves deeper into the mystery, he begins to uncover a complex web of conspiracy and corruption.

As the series progresses, it becomes clear that Nine and Twelve have a personal vendetta against the government and are using the bombings as a means of revenge. The show explores themes of terrorism, ethics, and the consequences of government power and corruption. It also delves into the psyche of the two teenage boys and their motivations for carrying out their attacks.

The animation in the show is stunning, with detailed backgrounds and fluid action sequences that bring the story to life. The soundtrack, composed by Yoko Kanno, is also a standout feature of the show. The music is atmospheric and haunting, with a mix of electronic and orchestral sounds that add to the tension and drama of the series.

One of the strengths of the show is its complex characters. Nine and Twelve are not just simple villains, but are portrayed as intelligent and calculating individuals who have been pushed to the brink by the injustices of the world. Shibazaki, on the other hand, is a flawed hero who struggles with his own past mistakes and doubts about the morality of his actions.

The show also features a variety of other characters, including members of the government, the media, and the police force. Each character has their own motivations and secrets, and the show does a good job of developing them over the course of the series.

Overall, Terror in Resonance is a thought-provoking and intense series that is not afraid to tackle complex and controversial themes. The show combines stunning animation with a gripping storyline and memorable characters, making it a must-watch for fans of anime and thrillers alike.

Terror in Resonance is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (11 episodes). The series first aired on July 10, 2014.
