Medusa is a mysterious illness which causes the body to petrify shortly after infection, found throughout the world and steadily increasing the death toll. In order to combat the disease, 160 lottery winners were chosen to be frozen until a cure could be found, one of whom is Kasumi - a twin whose sibling was not one of the chosen. Along with a group of others Kasumi awakens from her cryogenic chamber, but not to the same world she left it: prehistoric monsters roam the now-abandoned castle and eat the survivors, while endless giant thorns rise all around them. Against all odds, Kasumi and the others must now try to survive the horror of their situation and discover the truth behind what's happening, all the while waiting for the Medusa to finally claim their lives...
In the early 21st century, certain people are exhibiting signs of B-cell growth, a condition that is incurable. Yuji is one of these, who chooses to become a "Sleeper" -- a person who is put into stasis until a cure can be found. The tranquillity of Yuji's sleep is interrupted 15 years in the future, in a very different world. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating its resources, and.. human beings. Now all Yuji can do is escape through the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, towards Second Earth... mankind's new home in space.
Both King of Thorn and Blue Gender feature a protagonist that is diagnosed with an incurable disease. They then go into a cyrogenic sleep of somekind, before being woken up to find everything around them is in a state of total chaos.
If you enjoyed the plotline of one, you'll likely enjoy the other. Both are fantastic series.
Mysterious and incurable disease, cyrogenic sleep until cure is found, awaken in a post apocalyptic future (moreso in gender)....fight monsters....fight lots of monsters.
Imo, blue gender was 10x better and made way more sense.
Both of these have similar premises of diseased characters put into cold sleep and being rudely awakened into the middle of a disaster.
In both of these animes, we have a female protagonist that, with the aid others, must survive against deadly creatures they know nothing about. Another similarity is that in both, they also have to face the threat of a certain disease.
In both of these there's that feeling of uselessness (?) you get while watching.Also they are fighting a deadly pandemic.
It’s been some time since Raccoon City, the origin of the T-Virus outbreak, was wiped off the map by the military. Umbrella Corporation’s stock plummeted and a new pharmaceutical company called WilPharma has risen in its place; however, unlike its predecessor, WilPharma is working on a vaccine for the illness that turns humans into bloodthirsty zombies. Claire Redfield has just landed in WilPharma’s town to visit a friend when she finds herself in the center of a zombie-filled bloodbath. Leon Kennedy and members of the Special Response Team are called in to save Claire and the other survivors from the airport, saving an important member of WilPharma in the process. What has caused this new recurrance of the T-Virus? Claire and Leon must get to the bottom of things before nefarious foes are able to carry out their plans...
Both movies focus on a virus of somekind infecting people and ulimately killing them. Though in the case of Resident Evil the people who get infected turn into zombies and in King of Thorn the infected people turn to stone. But besides these differences they both begin to play out somewhat similarly. People start to get infected and then some amount of time later monster/zombies depending on which one you are watching begin to appear and start killing. Then from that a small band of people must fight for their survival against the zombies or monsters. Throw in some conspiracy involving a large company and these two titles look fairly similar. So if you liked one then you'll probably like the other as well.
If you found yourself drawn to the survival type story found in one of these movies of a deadly virus gone-wrong, then you'll find the other equally appealing. They both feature a group of people, confused and banding together for survival as they try to get to the bottom of a conspiracy.
Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.
Both movies deal with humans transcending their biology and going mad with power due to their personal insecurities. Both involve shady government experiments and cover ups gone wrong and are both very gory, King of Thorn more so than Akira in terms of actual deaths, but both are about equal in terms of monstrous bio-blobs trying to squish people.
Both shows definitely share a similar sci-fi/mystery atmosphere. In both shows, peoples' bodies are preserved in capsules, but while asleep, things go terribly wrong. Upon awakening, these people (only one person in Arve Rezzle) realize things aren't how they should be, and so begins the story.
The lengths of both shows are very different, but if you found one to be enjoyable, you may want to check out the other.
