Japan Sinks is Netflix original anime movie based on the SciFi novel by Sakyo Komatsu. This will be the last film directed by Masaaki Yuasa before his retirement.
Japan Sinks takes place a few days after the Tokyo Olympics, and follows an ordinary family trying to survive after an earthquake shakes the Japanese archipelago.
This film will no doubt trigger mixed-emotions given the current volatile state of the world and because we will be saying goodbye to a visionary anime director. Needless to say, there’s much anticipation for this film and I hope that Yuasa goes out with a bang.
Japan Sinks will be streaming on Netflix July 9th.
