It seems as if there is a day for everything. If you weren’t aware, 23 March is Near Miss Day, named after the date in 1989 when a massive asteroid came a mere 500,000 miles from colliding with the Earth. Had it connected, the effects would have been utterly catastrophic, on a scale similar to a 600-megaton atomic bomb.
Just think of that devastation… we’d never have had the opportunity to play Super Nintendo!
With that harrowing thought out of the way, we count our lucky stars today that we don’t live in a post-apocalyptic world (though 2020 is certainly doing an admirable impression). Not everyone is fortunate enough to avoid disaster, however, so we thought we’d take a look at five anime perfectly suited to Near Miss Day. It’s a lot safer than going outside, after all.
