The devastation is unleashed in the span of seconds. Yielding to centuries of unrelenting pressure, an ancient rift in the Earth gives way and a force equivalent to over a thousand atomic bombs erupts beneath the feet of the citizens of the world's largest mega cities! For the people of the greater Tokyo area, the results are catastrophic as even "earthquake-proof" buildings sway like weeds in the wind, gas mains rip open in gouts of flame and huge sections of the city's vital infrastructure are torn into shreds. For sister and brother Mirai and Yuki, it's the start of a desperate journey back to their parent's home in Setagaya. For motorcycle courier Mari, it means an equally frantic battle towards Sangenjaya and her own daughter and mother. Joining together in an epic odyssey through the mangled streets, these three must brave impossible obstacles and endure unspeakable hardships and heartbreak, with no way of knowing if their loved ones are even still alive. But they've no other choice! In the aftermath of nature's fury, only the strongest of will and most courageous of heart can hope to survive in Tokyo Magnitude 8.0!--Publisher's description.

Like Grave of the Fireflies you follow 2 siblings who must survive together. Thats where similarities end as this children get help from a single mother along the way. Once you reach the end of this series and you will want to watch it all, you will cry and rethink many things in your life.

Tokyo magnitude 8.0 is not anything like your by the numbers Hollywood disaster movie. While the dub is weak at times it is series that pulls no punches when dealing with the horror of such an earthquake. I will not say much more other than that it is a surprisingly powerful piece of animation. Weither it's do to the fact that we know such a thing can happenn to Toyko or some other deeper thing that I can not yet understand, I can not say.
