Synopsis

The premise of the project is the 70% possibility that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake will occur in Tokyo in the next 30 years. The anime depicts what would happen if an 8.0 earthquake took place.

The story centers on Mirai, a middle school freshman girl who goes to Tokyo’s artificial Odaiba Island for a robot exhibition with her brother Yuuki at the start of summer vacation. A powerful tremor emanates from an ocean trench, the famed Tokyo Tower and Rainbow Bridge crumble and fall, and the landscape of Tokyo changes in an instant. With the help of a motorcycle delivery woman named Mari who they meet on Odaiba, Mirai and Yuuki strive to head back to their Setagaya home in western Tokyo.

She's Breaking Bit by Bit

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 is something special. A human story told through naked eyes, this show did something that a lot of anime hasn't done for me lately, spark an emotional connection. It gently nudged me through the tale of a young girl named Mirai, her little brother Yuuki and a motorcycling delivery woman name Mari, as the world around them shattered into pieces.

Tokyo is crumbling; foundations are upheaved, buildings are leveled, and bridges are twisted till the tensions snap, as a magnitude 8.0 earthquake roars. Fires break out like crimson rashes, read more

[No spoilers]:

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 is provocative and innovative. What I could see when watching this work is that the director bothered to transfer the feelings of anime clear and objective manner, unlike other works that instinguem the viewer to imagine the meaning of some fact or event. And innovative because it deals with a theme (I believe) almost never spoken in the world of anime and that somehow is still a sore point in the history of the Japanese population.

Early on it is said that those would be possible consequences of a magnitude 8.0 earthquake in the city of Tokyo. It is impossible not to read more

I like to say, I'm new to reviewing, all I do is just state my opinions and feedback when I wright down my reviews. ^_^

Now the show is really great, I wouldn't say it's not really that realistic as to real life kinda realism probably to over the top since a magnitude 8.0 really won't do that damage, and since there is a bit of supernatural stuff at the ending, but It's still a good show.

Story: 10/10

I really love the story, actually the story is original since you don't really see any anime actually that is based out of Earthquake events. The ending hit me read more

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 is a breath of fresh air amidst all the crazy ridiculous shows filled with giant mecha, deadly monsters, hot chicks, and moe guitar plucking girls. It takes a seemingly normal life of a bratty teenager and literally shakes up her world as she confronts the very face of humanity.

Story [9]: Mirai is one of those bratty teenagers who is entering that stage of life where they just simply hate everything and anything. Being dragged to a robot exhibition by her younger brother Yuuki, in Odaiba, a catastrophic earthquake hits Tokyo and the city falls into chaos. The story follows Mirai's journey home read more

Recommendations

Both are stories that deal catastrophes and it's effects in a realistic approach. Both have siblings as the main characters whom develop a strong bond through out. 
Despite Ano Hana tries to keep scenes on a more happy stage, the sad moments don't ever miss a single episode to have some space.
Those two anime might result way different from eachother, but i think if you try to watch them both you'll get to understand and have the same feeling that they both will give you.
Plus both stories are very good, the art and the colors are very well cured.
Highly recommended both~ 
Both anime dealt with a section of the environment getting destroyed in some form. 
Mari and Balsa are very similar because they are like a protective mother figure for the children in both animes. 
Both deal with the tragedies of natural disasters. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 from the perspectives of a group of victims, while Rescue Wings shows a rescue helicopter pilot. 
The first episode of both these anime start of quietly and uneventful, then suddenly, the characters' lives get turned upside-down and calamity ensues. One caused by titans breaching the wall in Shingeki while in the other, an earthquake tears down the city.
