Chernobyl has been one of the best limited series released in recent years from HBO. Given that, we’ve been waiting patiently for the new Japanese limited series covering the Fukushima disaster in 2011.
The new eight-part drama covers the disaster’s build-up and the resulting fallout, ultimately being one of the most tragic moments in recent Japanese memory.
Early reviews have been particularly strong from the region and it currently sits at an 8.8 on IMDb at the time of publishing.
