On the bright side, this is probably the least perverse way in which anyone has ever been likened to Oedipus.

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
Remember what I said about this show potentially hitting a little too close to home for American audiences given the likely similarities to 9/11? Well this second episode hardly goes a few minutes before explaining how the first bombing of the series was orchestrated to make a building collapse in a way that shouldn’t be possible, essentially borrowing the 9/11 evidence verbatim. While there are very direct mentions of real-life terrorism such as the acts of the Unabomber, not a word has been said about 9/11, as if to tell this story as an alternate version of that event, and since it’s anime, that means it’s in Japan and probably masterminded by high school kids.
