‘King of Thorn’ Anime Feature Gets Crunchyroll Streaming

2 min read

King of Thorn Crunchyroll HeaderOne anime feature that I enjoyed a great deal several years ago has now found its way to Crunchyroll thanks to the partnership with Funimation in King of Thorn. The film is in its original Japanese language form with English subtitles while the dub remains on Funimation’s site. Being an older license, the availability for it is a bit more limited as it’s open to viewers in the US and Canada only.

Check out our review of the film.

Plot Concept: Panic spreads worldwide as the Medusa Virus – a fatal pandemic that solidifies the body to stone – threatens to wipe out the human race. One-hundred and sixty infected individuals are selected to be cryogenically frozen while a cure is developed. Kasumi is one of those chosen for the experimental program.

Forced to enter without her twin sister, Shizuku, her distress multiplies when she awakens to find the facility overrun with thick, thorny vines and ravenous monsters. As Kasumi and six others fight a losing battle to escape this labyrinthine nightmare, questions cloud her distorted mind. Where is her sister? Why did their only salvation mutate into a deathtrap? If they survive, how much longer do they have to live?
