What’s up? I’ll be recommending another anime for today and it’s none other than – Tokyo Magnitude 8.0! Well, what can I say about this anime? I think you guys are still familiar about the earthquake incident that happened in japan way back 2011, it was really indeed horrible, and even with the other cities and countries that had experienced earthquakes, all it does is suffering for everyone. This anime that I’ll be recommending today shares almost the same plot, it’s definitely worth watching.
Main Plot Of The Story
This anime depicts a story on how two siblings, after visiting a robot exhibition in Tokyo, struggles to reach their parents after the earthquake happened.
Honestly, I really liked the plot of this 11-episode anime. It showcase a wide variety of emotions through out each episode, though the anime focuses on drama and is labelled as Josei, you will really enjoy the series and I assure you guys, you’ll crack a tear with this anime! Another thing is, it offers valuable lessons on how an individual can increase, or rather survives an earthquake and its aftershocks. Art-wise, it’s awesome enough for me, not to mention that the anime was made way back 2009.
