Japan Sinks 2020 – First Impressions: A Devastatingly Plausible & Poignant Disaster Series

Japan Sinks 2020 is set in modern-day Japan and follows a family who are trying to survive in the wake of a catastrophic earthquake that causes the archipelago of Japan to start sinking into the ocean. I read the novel earlier in the year and positively loved it for how incredibly realistic and plausible it is, as well as the depiction of the political and cultural context of 1970s-era Japan. After watching the first episode, I can tell that this shall probably become one of my favourite anime serials to hit the airwaves in recent years.
