    Story:

    In an alternate version of the present, Tokyo has been decimated by a shocking terrorist attack, and the only hint to the identity of the culprit is a bizarre video uploaded to the internet. The police, baffled by this cryptic clue, are powerless to stop the paranoia spreading across the population.

    While the world searches for a criminal mastermind to blame for this tragedy, two mysterious children—children who shouldn't even exist—masterfully carry out their heinous plan. Cursed to walk through this world with the names Nine and Twelve, the two combine to form "Sphinx," a clandestine entity determine to wake the people from their slumber—and pull the trigger on this world.

    This is one of the best shows I've seen even though there are only two episodes out. It's amazing!!! I recommend it to everyone.

    I truly enjoyed watching this series. There were so many beautiful aspects in every episode - from the action to the sad moments - that I cried several times. I will probably cry even more now because the series has finally ended, and this is what I looked forward to during the week! This is and will always be one of my top favorite animes to recommend to someone.

    If this thread hadn't existed I would have made it myself. Agreed with @Taro-Tanako, the OST for this show is substantial and I reckon that the anime wouldn't have been the same without the attention to detail in the musical score. I've talked about this series with people before and almost everyone seems to remember it for its soundtrack. And I'll say I'm pleased with the extent of Arnór Dan's involvement in the first season's playlist; his pieces were my favorite and the most emotional. I also heard from a friend that Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir also participated in curating parts of the OST, and Wikipedia confirmed that beautiful rumor for me. I think most people including myself would recognize her work from Iclandic vocalist, Sóley Stefánsdóttir, collection of albums earlier this decade. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41C8Z5SFYKL.jpg I mean, there was an undeniable westernized vibe to it. It reached out to me as something different from other animes.

    And, of course, the names of the songs. I love how obscure and random the first season's collection looks at first glance, before realizing that each track shaped its corresponding scene with a deeper meaning. http://i.imgur.com/R6U9zuv.jpg

    Modern technology was an essential attribute to this serie's plot, and I was personally intrigued by all the iPhones and government surveillance that looked more relatable than usuall.

    I watched this anime and I really liked it. However, in my opinion it is too short and the characters could reveal a little better. Everything else is fine-a stunning soundtrack, a wonderful drawing and a plot that you want to follow.
