Terror in Resonance

30 minutes

In an alternate iteration of the present, Tokyo has been hit by a terrorist attack that has devastated the city. The only evidence of the culprits is a cryptic video uploaded to the Internet, which sparks paranoia across Japan. Unbeknownst to the authorities is that the terrorist masterminds — who call themselves "Sphinx"— are two teenaged boys who go by the names Nine and Twelve. Though they apparently should not exist, they have nonetheless decided to "wake up the world" with their heinous plans of destruction, with their fingers on the trigger.

Japan goes into a state of panic from Nine's declaration, and Tokyo's entire population begins to evacuate. Lisa regroups with a severely injured Twelve, who greets her before collapsing. Citing that Sphinx had killed no one during all of the attacks, Shibazaki assumes the atomic bomb is just part of a message from them. He then calls Haruka and asks her of the existence of the possibility that an atomic bomb can explode without inflicting a single casualty; she replies that it would be possible if it explodes while in the stratosphere, otherwise known as a "high-altitude nuclear explosion". Hamura realizes that Sphinx would be using a balloon to lift the atomic bomb into the air. Finding a security video of a balloon carrying a box into the air, the police realize that Sphinx plans on disabling all of Japan's electronic devices with an electromagnetic pulse that would result in the atomic explosion, essentially paralyzing the country. They then realize that aircraft would also be disabled, and there are hundreds of passenger flights currently in the air, carrying evacuated citizens. Fighter jets are dispatched to intercept the atomic bomb but are unable to succeed, while Nine goes up a skyscraper as he observes the countdown on his cellphone. Simultaneously, the passenger flights are all grounded, and Twelve regains consciousness. He is asked by Lisa if Nine really was going to destroy the whole world, to which he replies that he and Nine were always alone and were never needed by anyone before. He then thanks Lisa and proclaims that he is glad to have met her, which prompts her to smile seconds before the atomic bomb detonates. Everyone watches the explosion occur before the entire city is plunged into darkness, followed by an aurora, formed by the radiation from the atomic bomb, illuminating the sky.

The following day, Tokyo's buildings and streets are completely abandoned. Nine heads to the Settlement, where he sets up makeshift grave markers for the children who died from the Athena Project's experiments, including Five. He is then joined by Twelve and Lisa, and forgives the former for his actions. The three then spend the rest of the day playing around with a ball and listening to music. As night falls, they are approached by Shibazaki, who tells them that if they turn themselves in, then Project Athena will be exposed to the world and will not be ignored by anyone anymore. Minutes later, U.S. helicopters arrive and hold Nine and Twelve at gunpoint, but Nine pulls out a detonator, claiming that it is for another atomic bomb designed by the Japanese government, which is now in a nuclear power plant. Despite the threat, the soldiers shoot and kill Twelve under orders from their superior, who wants to keep the American government's involvement in the investigation a secret. Shibazaki orders the soldiers to stand down, then negotiates with an outraged Nine, who eventually gives the detonator to him before abruptly experiencing the same headache Five suffered. Before dying, he tells Shibazaki to always remember Sphinx. One year later, it is revealed that Project Athena was exposed to the world, leaving the Japanese government under scrutiny. Lisa and Shibazaki visit the graves of Nine, Twelve, Five, and the other experimented children regularly, and are on a familiar basis with each other. While coming across Shibazaki one day, Lisa tells him what Nine had told her before his death: the meaning of "VON", which is Icelandic for "hope".

Series Finale
Nine goes to the police headquarters, dons his Sphinx mask, and turns himself in. He refuses to speak to anyone but Shibazaki, but later relents and issues a demand for a press conference at a specific location at 8:00 p.m., or he will activate the atomic bomb prototype. Shibazaki visits Shunzo Mamiya, who confesses that he created the Athena Project as part of a plan to revitalize Japanese national morale following the nation's defeat at the end of World War II. Five, who has been hospitalized due to her deteriorating health as a consequence of the Athena Project experiments, learns of Nine's surrender and desperately sets off to try and reach him. When Twelve hears from Lisa that Nine has surrendered, he attempts to forget about Sphinx in his shame for betraying Nine, but Lisa convinces him to help Nine like he helped her. Five's men pursue the police convoy carrying Nine to the press conference through Shuto Expressway, only to find that the truck is a decoy. Enraged and desperate, Five leaves to pursue Nine herself. Twelve interferes, but Five disables his motorbike before stopping the truck carrying Nine. After killing her assistant for attempting to stop her, Five confronts Nine and confesses that she always wanted to beat him but never could. Knowing that she is dying, Five admits her love for Nine, begs him to live for them both, and gives him a brief kiss before committing suicide by detonating the spilled gasoline from her car. The Japanese airwaves are then hijacked by a prerecorded message from Nine: as his plans for the press conference were disrupted, the countdown for the atomic bomb's detonation has begun. Declaring that this is the final message from Sphinx, Nine unmasks himself and bids the people of Japan farewell.
