Well to be fair, the manga's foreign title is Tokyo Magnitude 8, and this anime's full title is Tokyo Magnitude 8.0. I know, it's just schematics, but there's definitely a difference, so it's not exactly the same. It's very likely the title just sounds compelling enough that two different people decided to use it.

I would agree if "8" was the top of the scale but it's not. "magnitude 9" is not even that rare, it happens once every 20 year somewhere in the world (according to wiki) so it is well possible to be used as the key event of a story. So why "8"? The only possible explanation is that in the manga it is stated that the earthquake magnitude was 8.

The problem with the Richter scale is that it fails to account for duration. An extended 8.0 can do more damage than a quick 8.5, for example. A mere 5.0 in a earthquake codeless district or a neighborhood sitting on a thousand feet of sand (think marina district) can utterly destroy the buildings on it.

Well yeah, but that's not the point ^^;;; The point is in both cases they used the same value, even if it's written differently (8 and 8.0) it is still the same thing, and there is no real need to use "8".

Anyway if you prefer there's the Mercalli intensity scale: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercalli_intensity_scale

Bones and disasters?

Boo. I love Bones, but I hate disaster thematics . It's like the easiest way out of (crappy) character development.

At least don't make it like The Day After Tomorrow... please. Pretty please?

Yeah, they could have used another value like 9. But 2 titles with a value of 8 is suspicious.

Maybe they just liked the sound/looks of it.

Tokyo Magnitude 9.0 doesn't look and sound too different, but what do we know?

Tokyo Magnitude 9 wouldn't be about survivors in an earthquake, it would be about a mass grave. :P

Lol. In any case, I'm definitely intrigued by this, and am hopping onboard too! Bones never disappoint too much, and the premise of this anime is a refreshing change from the norm.

The reason for using magnitude 8.0 is probably because the Great Kanto Earthquake that rocked Tokyo in 1923 was 7.9.
I assume the premise is what if the same Earthquake happened again.

The preview felt more like it was going to be a movie than just a show. I'm so excited for this!!!

The embedded PV is like that, but click the "PV" banner at the lower right for a fuller PV. Or go to the same thing on YouTube.

I'm on board for this show and I have set very mild expectations, which is surprising considering that I think very highly of BONES as a studio.

If this was Hollywood making a disaster movie or the likes, I'd just shake my head. However, the animated medium of Japan may be able to show another limelight to this topic. Instead of getting things like The Day After Tomorrow, perhaps it will have real substance.

But, I am not going to be getting too ahead of myself here. I hope to hear soon from this show... Does anyone know when it is airing?

Curious way to say Friday morning at 1:00 am. Or Thursday night I suppose.

This is the title I am looking forward to the most this season, just because I'm a sucker for shows that are part of the Noitamina programming block. Well, that's not the only reason.. Bones along with this concept just seem to standout in my eyes. My expectation is pretty high for this title and I'm pretty confident that I won't be let down. I'll be anxiously waiting for the first episode tomorrow(?).

Promising or not I'm prepared for disappointment. These sort of series are always hit or miss.
