SOS - Japan Earthquake 9.0


Source CNN
Donations have reached nearly $23 million so far, according to an early tally by the Chronicle of Philanthropy, a newspaper covering nonprofit organizations.

That number is far below the first four-day totals of other recent natural disasters. More than $150 million was raised toward relief within four days of the crisis in Haiti, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy. In the case of Hurricane Katrina, donations exceeded $108 million during the crucial first four days.

Re: SOS - Japan Earthquake 9.0

For a second, I thought, "What? They're already making an anime based on the earthquake?!"

Re: SOS - Japan Earthquake 9.0

They already had an earthquake-based anime in 2009 called "Tokyo Magnitude 8.0" that was actually pretty good, although in the current context people may feel otherwise.

"Tokyo Magnitude 8.0" was good, But it is not licensed in North America.

I think the anime would sell very well if it was licensed. I think just the name of it would get people to want to see it.
