It's years too late for this so I won't be sitting down to write an in-depth review but there are a few things that I do want to talk about regarding this anime so I'll do it here.
Terror The story starts off really well but somewhere along the line it loses its punch. This, I feel, in my very personal opinion, is completely due to the addition of the main female character who manages to derail the entire plot. Lisa, as a character, is extremely useless, and I feel like the only reason she was written was to introduce subplots to carry the story along (which somehow contraindicated its purpose and ended up detracting from the story people had tuned in to watch). There was not one scene where she was featured and she didn't fuck things up. I've seen some reviewers say that her character is pretty realistic as that is how most of us caught in the middle of something so much bigger than us would behave but I beg to differ. There is no realism in her endless stupidity and constant barrage of fuck-ups.
Towards the beginning of the anime Twelve is pretty wary of Lisa and even goes to tell her that he'll kill her if she makes one wrong move. That part felt very real to me because she was someone they barely knew, and I was hoping to see some character development for Lisa which would then go on to give actual reason for the protagonists to drop their guard around her. But somehow, over the course of the next few episodes, all she managed to do was go on to be one of the most useless characters I have ever seen in any anime, and also single-handedly managed to cripple Twelve's entire character to the point where I felt like I was watching a different Twelve from the one who had been introduced to us in the first episode. So the bottom line is that the story would have meandered a lot less and would have held its gravitas if Lisa's character didn't exist, and I really wish I could have seen that version of Zankyou no Terror that wasn't ruined by her character.
Five was another character who kept being bogged down by a one-dimensional personality that allowed no room for any sort of growth whatsoever. Shibazaki was one of the few characters I liked, but again, his character could also have been fleshed out a bit more, giving the audience a chance to actually connect with him; I know I would have liked that chance.
Zankyou Nine was my favorite character in the show and I honestly kept feeling bad for him from around the middle onwards; he kept having to deal with a very useless girl who just couldn't stop messing up, then his closest (and only) friend practically abandoned him over said girl, pretty much throwing away years of friendship as well as the common goal that the duo had originally set out to establish. Despite being saddled with these plot contrivances he still stood out and held his own amongst a sea of badly written characters.
The one thing that I will endlessly praise about this show is it's soundtrack. It has one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard in any anime, and blends seamlessly into the overall tone of the anime, while also somehow managing to stand out without being too overwhelming.

Overall, Zankyou no Terror is not a 'bad' anime, per se, but it could have been so, so much better. In my personal opinion, it's worth a one-time watch (if you're prepared to keep constantly feeling rather annoyed over contrived plot points and bad decisions taken by badly written characters), but that's about it.
