Funimation revealed this weekend during Anime Central that they have acquired home media rights to the ongoing sci-fi series Eureka Seven: AO and the Sunrise Studios anime film King of Thorn. The company also announced that Eureka Seven: AO will begin streaming via their official website starting very soon.
I'm sure that you guys already know all about Eureka AO. King of Thorn is an adaptation of a manga written by Yuji Iwahara. The film tells the story of two sisters infected by a deadly pandemic virus. One of the sisters, Kasumi, is chosen among a select few to be placed into cryogenic suspension until a cure for the ailment is found. The group wakes up sometime later, only to find out that the world has been overtaken by all sorts of horrors.
