This show looks pretty damn interesting straight off the bat. While the show itself hasn’t started airing yet, there have been previews of the first episode, and so far the reaction seems pretty positive. The PV also gives an impression of some sharp animation. Although psychological thrillers aren’t necessarily my thing – not that I avoid them, there have been a few I enjoyed tremendously – I expect that Zankyou no Terror has earned itself a place on my watchlist.
