Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and Perseverance

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 is available to stream on Hulu, HiDive, and VRV.


When the world becomes inherently stressful, people’s taste for fiction tends to gravitate toward one of two directions:

  • Escapism, running pell-mell in the opposite direction from dreary reality (the Animal Crossing approach)
  • Terror or tragedy, leaning right into the stress of it all (the Grindhouse or Grave of the Fireflies approach)

And both of these are deeply useful as different forms of a release valve. I’m right there with the legions who fell headfirst into Animal Crossing and barely resurfaced for the first week, and I can absolutely relate to using heavier stories as a form of catharsis.

But some of the most pertinent stories for these times, oddly enough, are neither of these things.

Or, rather, both.
