Just to be clear with everyone, King of Thorn is not an anime about hotblooded men competing against each other to grow the finest roses. Based off the manga by Yuji Hwahara, King of Thorn is actually a survival story that borrows elements from Sleeping Beauty.
When it comes most adaptations that cram volumes worth of content into one film, the final piece can turn out to be a rushed disaster. However, King of Thorn felt like it put the right pieces together in creating a story that flows well.
