I just finished reading the manga titled “King of thorn”. This is one good manga that i had read this year. At first part there are many twist but if you finished it every question that you will encounter will had an answer. This manga was created by the man behind the hit manga turned anime “Darker than Black”. So here is the plot of the manga. For its most part, the story is viewed through the eyes of the two protagonists, a Japanese girl named Kasumi and, American, Marco Owen. Kasumi is introduced as one of only 160 people in the whole world who were chosen as candidates to experiment a cure against the deadly Medusa virus, a mortal disease which was running rampant in the world. Such an event is not met with joy by Kasumi, who is forced to enter treatment and cold sleep without her twin sister Shizuku, whom she cares much about.
An unknown amount of time later, however, some of those put in hibernation abruptly woke up, only to find the facility where they were supposed to be treated in a total state of decay, invaded by a lush jungles of trees and especially strange vines covered in thorns, which appear to have something of a mind on their own. Not only that, but the survivors soon discover that the entire ruin is filled with strange, dinosaur-like creatures and other monstrous aberrations of nature. Thinking that a great amount of time passed since their arrival on the island, soon the survivors discover not only that their sleep was indeed too short to label such dramatic changes as natural occurrence, but also that the situation in and of itself is far greater than they could imagine.
To my surprise i just find out that there is movie adaption of this one that was released last 2010. Here is the trailer of it.
