A tribute to all the people who lost their lives in the Japan quake

Normally I don't do this kind of thing, since I hate the real world in general and only check the news when I have to, but I feel these people deserve at the very least my acknowledgment and support. Any large earthquake like this is gonna result in loss of life, and since earthquakes are so spontaneous, it's not like you can really prepare for one. As of right now, the death toll is expected to be well above the 200-300 range they have currently confirmed, and although I don't think this will be a bigger tragedy than the Indian Ocean quake 6 years ago, there were still a lot of lives lost. So, I've made this topic for people to share their opinions, whether you have friends or family in Japan or just want to talk about what it means to you. Here's to all those lost and their friends and families, hoping they make it through this and get back on their feet.

If I was rich, I'd donate to a relief fund. >.<

Re: A tribute to all the people who lost their lives in the Japan quake

Thanks for starting this thread Leviathan - my thoughts too are with those in Japan, its definitely bad. Even though Japan has the best built buildings and homes for surviving earthquakes its hard to protect against the Tsunami. The coastal cities like Sendai and Shirakawa are in really bad shape being mostly at sea level and the Tsunami just devastated them.

Its also caused a bunch of problems at their nuclear power plants. I hope those get resolved safely but best case all of northern Japan including Tokyo are going to short on electricity for some time, perhaps months.

Just a whole lot of no fun.

ANN has a ongoing post of Japanese seiyuus and other anime/music/game related folks tweeting or updating their blogs regarding their status after the quake.

In case you are thinking about a donation to help with the recovery efforts in Japan I'll suggest - our friends over at Crunchyroll are taking donations ($5 increments) and will match those up to $5k. They'll then pick an organization like the Red-Cross Japan Relief to give the money to.

+1 rep.

This is very interesting. It's nice to know all my favorite voice actors and actresses are doing okay.

Re: A tribute to all the people who lost their lives in the Japan quake

I want to help out in the relief but with the money problems with not just myself but my family, I can't say I can help but just pray that all those living in Japan are in good shape and those that have been deceased from the tsunami are to be held dear to the families and friends near them as memories as of now.

Re: A tribute to all the people who lost their lives in the Japan quake

Sawa has been in Hong Kong this past week touring, and just returned to Japan last night. She says that all her family is safe, although the nuclear mess is happening just in the next prefecture.

As for toyNN referencing the coastal cities of Sendai and Shirakawa, the soil itself will be a culprit, no matter how well-built the buildings are. Coastal areas are usually a mixture of sandy and silty soils, neither of which resist water well. With a sudden influx of water, the soil will often just melt away from beneath a building. (That's why so many traditional Coon_ss houses are built elevated upon pilings sunk deep into the soil, rather than upon a foundation resting atop the soil...)

Re: A tribute to all the people who lost their lives in the Japan quake

It's simply awful what has happened. Unfortunately, my state of Queensland had its floods and all. I'd love to donate, but I did so during my country's own crisis. I might sound a tad selfish, but I'm just a student. All I can offer are my thoughts and prayers.
