3. Right now, the world is being destroyed by an unknown thing!
4. The unknown thing arrived at great speed from the Pacific Ocean, and is presently destroying the center of the Fukushima prefecture!
5. ~~~This is the Mitama High School emergency network!
6. The situation is somehow unknown, but there's no school today!
The manga volume was published in July 2009.

That's pretty interesting! Most likely a coincidence, but still, the uncanny similarities are interesting. It doesn't really specify that it was an earthquake or anything though, just a... "thing"
There have also been other manga that predicted the end of the world via earthquakes, such as CLAMP's X/1999. The earthquakes were all in Tokyo though, so no real relevance per se other than the fact that there were earthquakes.
Well, there's the anime Tokyo Magnitude 8.0.
You might want to check it out, that anime is pretty high on the realism scale.
Bones actually predicted that a earthquake will be hitting japan in the near future and made the anime, so its pretty astonishing.
It's not about the earthquake. If you look at the map, the "unknown thing" came from the Pacific Ocean along approximately the same trajectory that the tsunami did, and then hit Fukushima.
Still, it's an "unknown thing". This "unknown thing" could be, well, anything. A UFO, even It would have been even cooler if it was "big wave" or something along those lines instead of just an "unknown thing", but it is nonetheless interesting that the area impacted was Fukushima and the trajectory was similar.
I think what Zeltrax and I were saying was just that there are other series that seem to have "predicted" something, like Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 in particular
It's a big jump from 8,0 to 9,0 though, but that's pretty much a detail, isn't it.
One thread that has recently been bumped by a member, because it also resembles the current incidents in a way:
Coppelion by Inoue Tomonori
It's about the aftermath of a Chernobyl like disaster affecting Tokio. It doesn't seem to really touch the recent events a lot, but I guess everyone will consider this scenario somewhat related to the latest discussions, fears and events in Japan. Also doesn't seem to be a realistic story, either.
Didn't read it yet, but gonna do so soon.
As Kaiten said, Japan is a very geologically active nation sitting right on top of the ~*ring of fire*~. It's no question that there would be several series about a gigantic earthquake. However, no one expected a tsunami that powerful after the March 11 quake.
I guarantee that come a few years, the recent earthquake will be adapted to fiction.
