It looks really interesting. Much like Tokyo,I live in a place that's doomed when a major earthquake finally happens.

The premise seems interesting, but I get the feeling that it's either going to be amazing if done right or merely mediocre.

Is this like "The Day after tomorrow", Tokyo edition?

Hmm, it sounds good and the staff is also good. I'll probably watch a few episodes when it airs and see how it turns out.

Oh, then that would just make it another Evangelion rip-off.

I'll watch any anime that piques my interest with a unique storyline. This seems like one of those, so I'll at least try it out for sure.

Anyways, it has promise.

Trailer wasn't terribly well done, but the idea of a disaster anime interests me.

Funny, that's the first thing that came to mind when I read the title. Alright, looks pretty cool. Great staff.
