"Whenever the name Shinichiro Watanabe is attached to an anime project you know that it will no doubt be something that you should be watching and after the first episode of his latest work Terror in Resonance, it isn’t any wonder why Watanabe and the series that he directs are so critically acclaimed. It is because they resonate with viewers. These series find a way of burrowing into the deepest reaches of our hearts and striking a chord with our souls. Watanabe understands human feeling better than any anime director and he puts on show for the world to see.
Terror in Resonance kicks things off with a bang (literally in fact) and it feels like a Watanabe series from the get go. There is a lot of questions raised in this first episode and little to no answers given, but that is just fine, because Terror in Resonance looks to take its time exploring its world and characters before it hits the nitty gritty, which is of course a staple of Watanabe’s work. His ‘show now and tell later’ style makes the ride all the more intriguing and Terror in Resonance is nothing if not highly intriguing."
