Tokyo Magnitude 8.0: The Essense of Disaster Story

Currently finished: Episode 9

In a natural disaster story like this, I was kind of expecting a bit more moving moments than what they have presented. Although the outcome was highly predictable, it does fill in the role of giving this story a dose of much needed and long overdue emotion. In my opinion, this should be the core of which a good disaster story build around.

While I normally prefer to see tragedies because they bring out much wider range of human emotions than any happy story could ever do, I could not bring myself to wish for something bad to happen in a disaster story. It just doesn't feel right. The only other anime has ever done that to me was Maria-sama ga Miteru.
