    It's pretty surreal to see cars pushed around like toys.

    Also shouldn't the thread title be changed to 8.9?

    Aw, come on. I know that he's been trolling his readers but it's their fault for reading it. No one's being forced to read Bleach.

    Anyways as bad it sounds I am hoping Oda in particular is okay. OP is part of my livelihood.

    That flood of debris washing over the farmland is surreal.

    I never find it amusing when a manga is terrible and I've wasted 5 minutes reading it. I weep. I only laugh at a manga that purposely sets up laughs.

    Aww...not Tokyo tower D:

    How did that happen? I thought Tokyo wasn't supposed to be affected by the tidal waves.

    Tidal waves don't bend the tops of towers, FYI.

    Yeah they do. If a wave passes over a tower, the thinner part at the top would be more prone to stresses. I know for sure earthquakes don't bend the top of towers (maybe the bottom). But if it wasn't a tidal wave, the heck happened?

    Someone must have been flying in the air and then accidentally crashed into it.

    No tsunami is going to wash over Tokyo Tower that high!

    Earthquakes can bend the tops of towers, if the top is weaker than the structure below it then you need less G's to affect it's structure. That looks like an aerial so I'd say that's about right.

    I heard it as 8.9 on the news lately.-> turns our there are different rates in different places, so...
    They're saying it's one of the largest earthquakes recorded.
    It's still pretty huge.

    I was able to reach most of friends that live there but there are still some I couldn't contact with. I hope everyone is alright.


    Edit:

    I honestly don't want to sound an ass but here's a tweet from dannychoo:

    Somebody is buying eroge just after the quake RT @akibablog: ソフマップAM館のエロゲーフロア。18:43。お客さんいる #akiba http://twitpic.com/48f0h4

    For people confused about differing numbers, Japan and the U.S. have different rating systems for earthquakes.

    I honestly don't think the Japanese can create an "I must do this dirty deed/embarrassing thing before I die" list without it already completed.

    Oooh ok that explains a lot thanks. Because I've been seeing different rates all over the web and I'm trying to follow streaming news from other countries for there's a tsunami warning.

    What's so scary is how abrupt it was. The earthquake happened in an instant and there was very little time to evacuate before the tsunami set in. I also laugh and cry at the thought of the after-math. Cry because of how horrific the damage is going to be and laugh because they're gonna have to beat back Tokyo tower like a car radio aerial (which kinda sounds silly).

    7.1 was one of the aftershocks. It's still pretty huge.
