#Anitwitwatches Season 18 – Terror in Resonance

Welcome to the Eighteenth #Anitwitwatches!

Our last watch sure went quick! We just finished up Girls und Panzer, which was a fun series I would encourage you to check out if you haven’t already. Since that is over though, we needed to decide what to watch next. There was a short time it looked like we might have a tight race, but Terror in Resonance held steady for a bulk of the voting period and ran all the way to the bank with your votes. I have previously reviewed and discussed this title as you can see in the link above, but as always, I’ll be there each week with you all to share in the conversation.

What is #Anitwitwatches?

This is a weekly community event meant to bring folks together to revisit old favorites and discover new shows. It’s meant to be something you can get as involved in as you want, there is no pressure to participate every week or every watch, but we’d love to have you to share in the experience and discuss the shows we are watching all the same!

I was inspired to do this after seeing the “rewatches” that people do over at Reddit in the r/anime sub. Since I interact with a lot of you guys on Twitter, I thought it would be the perfect place to do something similar! That said, even if you do not have a Twitter you can still join in by posting any content via WordPress, YouTube, or whatever suits your fancy. If you do, be sure to send me an email at jonspencerreviews@gmail.com so I can share your wonderful creations!

For everyone else, simply watch the episodes for the week based on the schedule below. Make sure to use the hashtag, #anitwitwatches when you do, and that’s it! Discuss with the other folks participating, create content, and generally just have a fun time!

This next show was chosen based on YOUR votes, so let’s get to the watch schedule.

Terror in Resonance Schedule

As always, we have a short break before returning. The main reason for this is to give everybody a little time off between watches. Beyond that, I’ve been slacking a bit on a few things so going to need that time to catch back up! Anyway, that means we’ll be starting on April 4, 2022.

If you have not done so, you can see where you can watch Terror in Resonance for free, and legally, by using justwatch.com. Unfortunately, I cannot realistically check all regions but I aimed to make this as accessible as possible. That said, I won’t stop you from doing what you need to in order to participate. The more the merrier!

Here are the dates (all Mondays) and the episodes for each, please keep in mind that Monday’s are the main days for discussion but you basically have the whole week to watch (if you need to miss a week or whatever, that’s all good too):

We’ve had some pretty long watches lately, so I made sure to keep this one on the shorter side. As a result, we only have 6 weeks for this series. I hope you’re excited to watch this one and I look forward to all the excellent discussion!

Anime ABC’s Z is for Zankyou no Terror

The End of a Saga

Ever since the dropping of the atomic bombs in Japan, 1945 the country has never been the same. It’s an event that has left a permanent scar that permeated the culture, which is why nuclear disaster is such a prevalent theme in Japanese media, especially anime. Today’s final ABC review explores the impact of the bombings and offers a whole lot more to say on rather divisive subjects. From the brilliant mind of Shinichiro Watanabe, I present to you Zankyou no Terror. Continue reading “Anime ABC’s Z is for Zankyou no Terror”

Taking a Look at my Desktop Backgrounds

Doing Something a bit Different

Today I felt like talking about my desktop backgrounds and my thought process behind how and why I choose the ones I have. This article is a good way to get to know me some more and an opportunity for folks to share some cool images with each other. This isn’t really meant to be in-depth or anything, just for fun. I know this is something fairly atypical of me but I hope you’ll indulge me a bit and enjoy 🙂  Continue reading “Taking a Look at my Desktop Backgrounds”

Top 25 Anime Openings

nfzmig8When the OP is Just Right…

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve personally put an actual article up on here. So I thought I’d get back into the swing of things by celebrating some of my favorite anime openings. I’ve seen a couple hundred anime, so this list took some careful consideration to whittle down to just 25.

The list is in no particular order and the only rule is that the opening has to have come from a show I’ve seen. Other than that, no repeats for stuff I’ve reviewed outside of honorable mentions. Obviously this is just my personal taste, so if an OP you love isn’t on the list I probably didn’t see the show or just didn’t like the opening that much ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  Continue reading “Top 25 Anime Openings”

Ajin Season 1 Review – The Full 3D CG Anime Experience

Normally Anime Isn’t Fully Digitally Animated & That’s Probably a Good Thing

79202lHowever, every now and then CG and 3D animation is necessary for budgeting, time, or practical reasons. In Ajin’s case, the show is fully done in this manner. While it isn’t always the prettiest in terms of animation, Ajin did manage to capture my attention with its intriguing cast and provocative narrative. Was Ajin a forgotten masterpiece of the 2016 Winter line up, or something that was rightfully passed over by most of the community?

Thoughts On Terror In Resonance, Watanabe, & Contemporary World Issues – EDITED

This article series has been discontinued

Zankyou no Terror, or Terror in Resonance in English, is an 11 episode anime from the Summer 2014 anime season. Having been directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, this anime quickly made it onto my radar. However, since I tend to lag behind in what I watch (there are a lot of shows), I only just got to this one recently. These articles are discussion pieces on the anime itself, I will review parts of the show, ultimately giving it a score and recommendation as per the norm. Naturally, there will be some spoilers.
