Ao Fukai, a 13-year-old boy with a missing father, lives on the island with an old doctor named Toshio and is about to enter middle school. Ao’s mother was taken away a decade ago by unknown individuals. Naru Arata, Ao’s 13-year-old childhood friend and the story’s heroine, lives with her father, older sister, and grandmother. She has a “Yuta” power awakened within her due to an incident when she was young. A mysterious entity called “Secret” suddenly appears and launches an attack on the Scub Coral lifeform on the island. Ao launches a certain military FP called “Nirvash” aboard a Japanese military transport in his fervent desire to protect the island.

    King of Thorn: Panic spreads worldwide as the Medousa Virus?a fatal pandemic that solidifies the body to stone?threatens to wipe out the human race. 160 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?

    Sixh. Biography
    Japanese designer Naoto Hirooka1s gothic and lolita fashion line h. NAOTO
    has accumulated positive reviews and praise from both Japanese and Western
    markets. After receiving positive stimulation from collaborations with
    charismatic visual-kei artists, h.NAOTO starts the 3h.ism2 project in the
    mid 2000s based on the theme of fashion and music co-existing in one entity.

    In 2007, the success of h.ism leads to collaboration with the young fashion
    design duo IBI and MINT. 3Sixh.2 is born.

    Started by IBI, the fashion line Sixh. unites visual-kei artistry with the
    imagery of popular host and hostess clubs. A new theme, ghost-kei, is
    created by combining the words 3gothic2 and 3host2 into 3ghost2. MINT
    launches the line with the New Japan Mode Collection featuring its relaxed
    character, 3MINT Neko2, and Six.h flourishes from there. Without a doubt,
    Sixh.1s cool, carefree ideas are not restricted by ordinary rules of fashion
    or society.

    Also in 2007, Sixh. expands from a fashion brand into a band with the same
    name. IBI sings vocals with MINT on the bass, joined by guitarist NARI .
    Sixh.1s unique musical presentation crosses the Western standard of 3rock2
    with the fashions of ghost-kei.

    In 2010, Sixh.1s ladies1 collection 3MelT2 joins the line-up with designer
    MIKA in the lead. It mixes sexiness with a touch of devilish cuteness by
    using gorgeous butterflies and roses as the main motifs. IBI1s Ageha-kei
    fashion line is also in the works.

    h. NAOTO1s fashion line and band Sixh. is constantly adapting and merging
    with ever-evolving Japanese counterculture. At heart, Sixh. is the sixth
    sense beyond the five senses!
