Okay so this might sound a bit crazy but two years ago Japanese anime television aired a cartoon that was just like whats going on there right
(東京マグニチュード8.0, Tōkyō Magunichūdo 8.0?) is a Japanese anime television series that premiered on Fuji TV's noitaminA timeslot on
July 9, 2009, where it ended its original run on September 17. Directed by Masaki Tachibana and written by Natsuko Takahashi, it is an original series
co-produced by Bones and Kinema Citrus. The 11-episode series centres around two young siblings, Mirai and Yūki, and single mother Mari who the two
meet in the aftermath of a major earthquake hitting the Japanese capital, placed in the near future (2012).
Anyway they go into detail of what the government does and doesn't do, what the city would look like from a ground level kids perspective... I mean
it's pretty creepy how close that show is to what were seeing right now...
link to ep 01 but the quake doesnt hit until the last few minutes
what do think... did they know before hand this was coming???
