Crunchyroll Co-Production “Island Of Giant Insects” Hits Theaters This Winter

Popular web-comic “Kyochuu Rettou”, known in English as “Island of Giant Insects” will be making a theatrical debut this Winter in Japan. The survival-against-insect anime began as a web-comic on Manga Cross, surpassing over a million views the title was later printed in volumes. You can be sure with Crunchyroll as a co-producer for the film that North American territories will probably see a theater release too! At the very least we won’t have to wait too long if at all for “Island Of Giant Insects.”
