Animes, Photography and everything in between… Pfft..

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0


The premise of the project is the 70% or higher possibility that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake will occur in Tokyo in the next 30 years. The anime will depict what would happen if an 8.0 earthquake took place. The story will center on Mirai, a middle school freshman girl who goes to Tokyo’s artificial Odaiba Island for a robot exhibition with her brother Yutaka at the start of summer vacation. A powerful tremor emanates from an ocean trench, the famed Tokyo Tower and Rainbow Bridge crumble and fall, and the landscape of Tokyo changes in an instant. With the help of a motorcycle delivery woman named Mari who they meet on Odaiba, Mirai and Yutaka strive to head back to their Setagaya home in western Tokyo.

Despite the huge anticipation the blogosphere had before it’s release, I find Tokyo M slightly lacking in everything EXCEPT it’s “slice-of-life”. Needless to say, the characters were realistic even to me.

    I remember quite a few people recommended this series to me. Seems like a pretty serious anime.
