After a massive earthquake in Tokyo 25 km under the sea at a magnitude of 8.0, two young siblings Mirai and Yūki, who were visiting a robot exhibition in Odaiba at the beginning of their summer vacation, struggle to reach their parents in their house in Setagaya, assisted by a female motorcycle courier named Mari, who is striving to reach her own daughter and mother in Sangenjaya. Together, the three of them brave the partly ruined city and try their best to make it home safely.


The series was first announced at the 2009 Tokyo Anime Fair, denoting that it would replace Eden of the East in Fuji TV's noitamina well-rated anime timeblock and would be co-produced by Bones and Kinema Citrus.[2][3] It first aired on Fuji TV's noitamina timeslot on July 9, 2009, running for 11 episodes until September 17. The series' setting is based upon the prediction that there is 70% or higher chance of an earthquake measuring 7.0 magnitude on the Richter scale hitting Tokyo in the next 30 years, with the series illustrating the consequences of a magnitude 8.0 earthquake affecting the city.[2][3] Bones stated that it would try to realistically depict the after-effects of such a situation and that it would collect and tabulate research on previous earthquakes and interview individuals who were affected by them.[2][3]

Due to the detail and realism put into the series, an announcement is displayed when an episode on a disc is first played. If two or more episodes are watched without pressing stop or powering down the player, the message is not displayed any further, but will return upon the next viewing of the disc.


The Tokyo-M8.com website has a page of credits that is separate from what appears at the end of the episodes. Among what is credited, the manga series 51 Ways to Save Her by Usamaru Furuya is listed as a reference for Tokyo Magnitude 8.0[6] and the manga was retitled for the French release as "Tokyo Magnitude 8". However, other than the general concept of depicting people surviving a magnitude 8.0 earthquake in Tokyo, the two series are dissimilar. Given the first volume of the French edition was released in February 2009, retitling it to a nearly identical name may have been an attempt to benefit by creating an incorrect association with the upcoming anime. (See the Merchandise page for more information.)


I actually liked this ending (even though a main character died). And I dont say that a lot. I thought the scene with Mirai and her parents crying for/over Yuuki was sad, but when MARI and Mirai cried, I got full on tears going. It really hit home for me. I cant say it was because I lost a sibling like Mirai did (only child, sorry), but I`ve felt like that. Where somewhere in your heart you cant let go to save anything. I did the same when my friends mom and my grandfather who helped raise me when they themselves passed away. It just it home so close that when I watched the rest of the episode, I was honestly amazed at how Mirai recovers from that terrible experience. She is stronger now and will always keep Yuuki in her heart and in her thoughts.


Now when it comes to scoring this series, I wish I could give half scores. Because it was just a 6.5 to me. But I gave it a 7 for an engrossing beginning, the emotional gems spread throughout the middle and a very good ending episode.


The next moment, the world does. An earthquake of the eponymous magnitude 8.0 erupts from northern Tokyo Bay, causing buildings to come crashing down, iconic landmarks to crumble, and fires to erupt in the city center. In the chaos surrounding the initial tremor, Mirai and Yuuki meet Mari, a motorcycle delivery woman and single mother. Together, the three of them set out on the long journey to the Onozawa home in western Tokyo.


Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 started running in July 2009 with 11 episodes, with direction by Masaki Tachibana (Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit) and music from Kou Ootani (Shadow of the Colossus, Haibane Renmei). It succeeded Eden of the East in Fuji Television's noitaminA late-night timeslot.


That said, I still have a high opinion of TM8.0. Original, high-concept story with well researched events, a focus on depicting realistic characters and subtle family relations, a clever, high-risk twist that almost worked, and a final episode that left no dry eyes. Sure, it had a share of narrative problems, but my rewatch confirmed to me that the show was mostly good and occasionally outstanding.


Well, I certainly wasn't expecting that episode...Couldn't read the redux until after I had seen it, but i did shed some manly tears there...I definately agree with the animation style though. It does feel too unreal, even though it is real. Really messes with you just a little bit. Question remains though, is Mirai just in denial and this is how she deals with it, or is she actually undergoing some form of post traumatic stress, as hallucinations on this scale are aren't something small.


I think it was a dream sequence. We were shown that she had a dream inside of a dream before waking up to reality. Producer's were probably hoping to trip up some people, and they probably succeeded in that sense, considering Yuuki's dialogue were as vivid and alive as ever in the episode. Still, Mari's behavior and all the hints floating around points to the fact that he's probably dead. As for when they'll break this news to Mirai, I don't really know. It could be the next episode, the episode after, or it could be by the finale of the series when she finally goes home.


After watching said episode 3 times through, I remain unconvinced of the theory of Yuuki's death everyone's tossing around. Each piece of evidence I've seen is inconclusive at best or highly circumstantial, and can really be explained away by just about anything. Let's take the list of questions from the comment in the last TM8.0 post.Q: Why are they out of an overcrowded hospital so quickly?A: We actually don't know the length of time they spent in the hospital. It could've been a couple minutes or a couple hours. A complicated surgery procedure would certainly be the latter, right? And definitely enough time for Mirai to pass out twice.Q: What were those 'legal' papers?A: Possibly anything. Hospital services statement, health check-up report, etc.Q: Why were there TWO death dreams?A: To press all the same buttons they did the first time? Kind of cheap, but not impossible, considering how many times we were faked out Yuuki's death throughout the series.Q: Why doesn't Mari say a word to Yuuki after he's 'better'?A: No real explanation, but by itself it doesn't mean anything. It could just be coincidence.Q: Why does Yuuki never actually touch his bag?A: Again, possibly coincidence. Not conclusive either way.Q: Why does Mari keep apologizing and break down in tears when Mirai talks about how better Yuuki is?A: Relief that she doesn't have to be the strong one all the time, that Mirai's optimism pulled Mari's anxiety about her daughter and mother to the surface.Certainly, there are questions left unanswered. Particularly, Mari seems to be hiding something, but that's been my feeling since the beginning of the series. It is possible Yuuki could be dead, but the preponderance of evidence, the burden of proof, hasn't been shifted away from my initial impressions yet. 041b061a72
