chii’s Anime Snack of the Week: King of Thorn

"Medusa" is a mysterious illness which causes the body to petrify shortly after infection has suddenly broken out among the world. King of Thorn follows 160 chosen people who will be frozen until a cure could be found. Time passes and many of them wake up in a terrifying world filled with mysterious huge monsters that want nothing more than to make them dinner. It's time to escape the research center's underground and make it to the surface to see just what the world has become. Survival of the fittest.

Entering the freezing process

Time passes and the thorns appear








Why chii thinks you should watch it

If you love action and strange adventure where you aren't quite sure what's going on all the time this movie is for you. The characters are quite lovely as well. I love stories where pandemics have occurred and if you do too this one shall be a great treat to watch. It's not a zombie movie either. The movie is simply beautiful to look at. It was pretty hard for me to look away from it because of how awesome it looked. I'll be checking out the manga as I've heard that it is even better than the movie. (which people always say about manga but ehh)

Killer bat like creatures

Killer scary beasts







Escaped from the bats... now what?
