Land of the Lustrous (Hōseki no Kuni) Manga Gets TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The manga's story takes place in the distant future, where a new life form called "hōseki" (gems) is born. The 28 gems must fight against the "tsukijin" (moon people) who want to attack them and turn them into decorations, so each gem is assigned a role such as a fighter or a medic. Phos is a gem who hopes to fight the moon people, but is given no assignment until the gems' manager asks Phos to edit a natural history magazine.
Ichikawa launched Land of the Lustrous in Kodansha's Afternoon magazine in 2012. Kodansha Comics plans to release the first volume in English this summer. Kodansha will publish the manga's seventh compiled volume in Japan on May 23.
