About Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 DVD

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 complete collection contains episodes 1-11 which were directed by Masaki Tachibana.

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, who were caught in the earthquake while in Odaiba during summer holiday, 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.

Special Features: Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 Digest Version, Clean Opening Animation, Clean Closing Animation.

Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.

I enjoy disasters movies and I love anime so when i heard about this show i just had to buy it since i never seen an anime that have disaster as it main plot and did i enjoy it??...........HECK YEAH!!. This anime truly make you fell like you are in that earthquake and the after match, for me every episode I felt like i was on the edge i was both excited to see what happens next and yet scared for the lives of the 3 main characters. But this anime truly shows how people really are when mother nature strikes, when your life is at risk, when you are facing death in the face it truly capture what it means to survive...would you risk your life to help a stranger or would you just protect yourself? That what i asked myself while watching this amazing anime. This anime is not just about the after match of the quake but about love, compassion, bonds, sacrifices, and the will to live on....A MUST WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!

Great Buy for any anime collector/watcher

This is a very touching anime , although it may be pretty depressing at times, optimism comes up from the ashes and makes the viewer care about the characters. The animation is very clear for the time that this was created (2009). There are some twists in the anime, that make it not so predictable, but this is recommended for anybody who has a passion for good anime; this is a "short and sweet" buy for them.

Touching, Weepy, Sweet, and Action-Packed

I purchased this during one of Right Stuf's sales and due to the amazing price, I thought I'd give this series a try without having ever heard of it before. Anyway, it definitely fulfills the genre requirements of a disaster flick, but because the lead characters are children, the audience experiences the chaos a little differently through their eyes - a sensitive, emotional take on something that is very plausible and realistic.

I knew a story like this was going to be sad just from reading the title, and yes, it is sad, but in the most bittersweet and uplifting way. This one is a keeper.

Definitely Recommend

This is one of my all time favorites and seems to me to be horribly underrated. The story is just so compelling and heartfelt, its something everyone should see. Absolutely worth it.

Definitely worth your time!

It starts off slow and at first seems like everything is going to be ok in the end but slowly starts pulling at all your heart strings and by the end was completely in tears.

Heartfelt Tearjerker

This was a great series! Thoughtful, heartfelt, and a tearjerker toward the end. I have recommended it to several people. I liked that the DVD had both Japanese and English audio, so I can watch Japanese when on my own and can switch over to English when my family wants to watch with me.
