'''One:''' There is an estimated 70% chance that an earthquake of magnitude 7.0 or higher will hit Tokyo within the next three decades.

'''Two:''' Mirai Onozawa is your typical rebellious thirteen-year-old -- bored with school, frustrated with her distant-seeming parents, and annoyed by her cheerful younger brother Yuuki. Her single point of solace at home is her cell phone, with which she texts her friends and organizes her thoughts.

'''Two:''' Mirai Onozawa is your typical rebellious thirteen-year-old -- bored thirteen-year-old--bored with school, frustrated with her distant-seeming seemingly-distant parents, and annoyed by her cheerful younger brother Yuuki. Her single point of solace at home is her cell phone, with which she texts her friends and organizes her thoughts.



The next moment, [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor the world does.]] An earthquake of the title-giving magnitude 8.0 erupts from northern Tokyo Bay, causing buildings to come crashing down, iconic landmarks to crumble, and fires to erupt in the city center. In the chaos surrounding the initial tremor, Mirai and Yuuki meet Mari, a motorcycle delivery woman and single mother. Together, the three of them set out on the long journey to the Onozawa home in western Tokyo.

* PottyEmergency: After eating a cake several hours earlier, Mirai suddenly needs to go to the bathroom. Considering the emergency situation everyone is in there aren't normal bathrooms to use. Mari notices Mirai's discomfort easily and gets her a disposable, paper toilet, but Mirai is too embarrassed to use it. She tries to use a portable toilet; however, a man cuts in line which causes the man in back of Mirai to get into a fight with him. Mirai ends up using the paper toilet instead.

** Frogs for Mirai (her cellphone is decorated with them, and one of Yuuki's nicknames for her is "frog alien"), and sometimes all the Onozawas. In particular, when Mirai resolves to be kinder to her family in episode 7, it's interspersed with shots of a statue of a family of four frogs.
** Mari goes the entire series wearing a jacket with a cute stylized tiger on its back.

* MoodWhiplash: The latter half of the series constantly swerves between hope that Mari's family is alright or dead. [[Spoiler:Just when all hope seems lost they turn out to be alive. Then the whiplash hits even harder when it's revealed Yuuki has been dead and Mirai has been in delusional denial for the past day.]]

%% HarsherInHindsight goes on the YMMV tab.



* InvisibleToNormals: [[spoiler:After Yuuki's death]] Mirai can still interact with him, possibly because he is a hallucination. The story goes out of it's way to make this seem to not be the case by having him "run off" the second he would have interacted with anyone other than Mirai. After several hints that [[spoiler:Yuuki is dead]], it's shown that this trope is in play when a perspective switch to a minor character reveals that Miria is talking to empty air.
