Let me start by saying i hate disaster movies. Films like the posiden adventure do nothing but piss me off because of the lack of reltey to the horrible situation and just making an thriller in disguise as movie about a real tragedy. Tokyo magnitude 8.0 is different however in the fact that it more resembles grave of the firefly's then the posiden adventure. The story is quite simple a middle school girl named maria who hates her family is forced to go to a robot expo with her little brother lufey in odaiba. Shortly after arriving an 8.0 magnitude earthquake stricks Tokyo and destroys most of the city leaving maria lufey and a female mortercycolist named mari a s they try to get back home to find there family. Tokyo magnitude is both beautiful and realistic. The destruction it Tokyo seems real and horrifying at the same time. Buildings are destroyed and there bodies on the ground and injured peapole. The animation done by bones is fantastic and truly captures the horer and reailesom of the destruction. The characters are more human then you expect from anime. The children do seem like normal children maria is a normal preteen girl as well as lufey being a normal little kid and is also probably the cutest little kid in anime histroy. The series also has a fantastic opining and ending track that through s out the traditional j pop and gives a good hard rock opining theme and a happy emotional ending theme. overall tokyo magnitude 8.0 is probably the best anime to come out in the summer seasion and besids fma brouther hood the best anime of the year. so i give Tokyo magnitude 8.0 a 9 out of 10
