My friend Paul has the manga, so maybe I'll tell him about this.

Uso~n?! This got?! But... just a movie. How... unfortunate.

Mmm~... Well, it was a great manga, but the end was... rather disappointing, so I hope they change that a bit. Other than that, looking forward to it... perhaps.

Maybe they'll improve on it. :heh:

trailer of king of thorn :

I'm really looking forward to this! Great news indeed. The series felt really cinematic, so a movie kind of suits it. I love that scene in the first chapter (6) of volume 2, when it lifts to show you what's under them in the water. Very stunning visually, and a great set piece, can't wait for the film.

orion 2009-08-12 22:02

The final monster looks good as well.

Who's the studio?

Echoes 2009-08-12 22:17

Woah, that trailer looks great! I haven't read the manga, so I don't know if a movie can do it justice; but I am glad to see a movie getting released. It's nice with some variety from just series/ovas.

The trailer gave me a shivering trill of epic tragedy


Patriot's Blade 2009-09-04 05:16

uh, to me, by just looking at the trailer, why does it REMINDS me a lot of Blue Gender?

well, its also about people who got an incureable disease & forced to cryogenics until they woke up, then shockingly finding themselves in a future world now filled with monsters,

but minus the Starship Troopers-ish giant Insects along with its power armour-like Mechas

Tiamat's Disciple 2009-11-23 18:23

The basic premise of the story is pretty much exactly the same as blue gender, even the beginning is the same. But it does go a different and weirder path than BG.

Not really sure a movie can do it justice, but we'll see

The manga is really really good jurasic park style adventure, and this looks like is very close adaptation. Judging by the trailer its going to be awesome.

Tyabann 2009-11-24 15:10

This looks really great. Mmm delicious movie budget.

I hate to Necro-post and all.


I was looking at my list of unaired anime, and Ibara no Ou was on my list.

Anyone know what happened to it? or did it already aired (or movied)

The only thing I found out is that it's scheduled for 2010... I couldn't find any month or day.
Nor could I find any info on this title on any of the search engine or anime source sites.

Except for AnimeNewsNetwork... but on there it says it was aired in 2009.
But all other sources says 2010...

So I am confused here.
Did this title already aired or didn't? or what happened to it?

shels 2010-05-05 23:10

This movie had a premiere exhibition in Spain, Sitges Film Fest on October 2009 and some others locations as well, but as far as i know not in Japan...

NorthernFallout 2010-05-06 00:01

It had premiere the first of May in Japan if ANN has the correct info.

Can't wait.

They've licensed the manga so may buy.

Why is source bad?
