King of Thorn : A mysterious virus, nicknamed Medusa, is spreading around Japan, turning its victims into stone. Given the impossibility of finding an immediate cure, the government opts for cryopreserving a select group of patients until they come up with a solution. Kasumi, one of the chosen ones, has been asleep for years and her awakening, more than a bed of roses, is a bed of thorns, and happens in the midst of total chaos where monstrous creatures lie in wait all around. Based on Yuji Iwahara's manga by the same name, King of Thorn puts animated images to a sensational cross between Aliens and the series Lost. Enigmatic and highly explosive.

second time I see this amazing movie and still love it. It's beautiful and has so many references to fairy tales, it's a great story, it hooks you from beginning to end and you find yourself wanting to know the mystery. A must see, and I plan to watch it again and again.

it was scary in the disturbing sort until a bit after the water scene then i saw it as what it is. a beautifully tragic rendition of a reimagining of sleeping beauty.. i wish the ending was a bit more understandable with her revelation. course if i foundout what she found out i would be a little more hysterical. that's all i dont understand.. well that and the flashback sequence

A nice anime that unfolds with a twist. Give it to Nippon anime to turn a familiar story into something new. The animation is great with superb detail.

Not often an anime leaves me with my jaw unhinged like this one did. The beauty of the animation caused me to blink a bit when the blood started - almost like it was all too pretty for that sort of thing to be happening. But i got over that fast and became immersed in such a stunning anime. it'll leave you thinking about it after youve watched it trying to unravel what youve just really seen... perfection.

oh wow this was a beautiful tale, sad and cruel in some part but definitely worth a watch. I was hooked from beginning to end and the drawings are just so amazing. It's got action and twists and turns...lovable characters as well. This is a rare gem. A must watch!

This one was a little crazy. Great store line, the person that wrote this is really creative. And did something happen to rest of the world? Was there more people around? I guess we'll never know.

confusing at first nice and complex you got to pay attention but really good 10/10

Posted by no_beachboy 4 years, 9 months ago

the japanese and their complex plots! yeah, so, it was really awesome, although it sometimes felt a little like ripoffs of several other plots put together. but what the hell, almost every story has been done at least once nowadays. so definitely worth a watch (if you can read really fast to keep up). ps: unusually little sex content in this one :D
