Kare Kano (A.k.a. His and Her Circumstances or Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou) Yukino Miyazawa has been a model student all her life and is going to attend high school to continue this. She hides her real personality behind an unbreakable mask in order to get praised and be seen as model student. Though things changes as Souichirou Arima appears.

Zankyou no Terror is created by the relatively new and upcoming animation studio Mappa, which is responsible for a wide variety of different genres of anime. This Noitamina show was made in recent time and carries the terrorism tag making it a show quite topical in current and recent events occurring all over the world and because the series being a relative unknown to me, I have decided to give this show an earnest review. *NOTE* Unless otherwise mentioned, JP front- and surname ordering is used Story (8.5/10) The series takes place in modern day tokyo and revolves around a duo of no-named...
