Heart touching anime!
4 December 2010 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

Tokyo magnitude 8.0 is a very heart touching anime series. It is about a brother and sister who faced a earthquake in Tokyo. There they met a women and three of them survive from earthquake and heading to home.

On the way they see lot of people some are crying, some are hopeless and some are happy being rescued. Just like reality it is shows us how people deal when there is a earthquake or natural disaster. How people helps others, some quarrels with others for foods such as.

The story is pretty nice and you won't stop it watching until the end. The sister and brother here always fight and we can see that in real life too. But actually they love each other.

This anime is mainly about humanity. A love between a sister and brother. The ending is really sad and beautiful. This is one of the best anime series I have ever watched.

So if you haven't watch this yet I suggest you to watch this and I am sure you will love this.

"We hay have lost our friends, family but we know they are always watching us and thinking about us"
