March 11th, 2013 was the second anniversary of the 2011 Touhoku earthquake and tsunami, also known as Higashi Nihon Daishinsai (東日本大震災), 3.11 Earthquake, and other names. April 11th marks 2 years and 1 month since the event. We touched upon some of our feelings and emotions at the time 2 years ago on podcast episode 137, Jane Dae.
It was a Friday afternoon for Japan, Thursday night for me. When I first heard about it, I was still doing my usual thing: staying up late and not giving a damn. An NSK stream was going on and some people in chat said that there was a huge earthquake near Japan. That area is frequently assaulted by earthquakes and I’m confident that the nation of Japan has the world’s best earthquake preparedness due to how much of that crap they have to deal with. This wasn’t like any other time though.
