posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
HIDIVE announced on Saturday that it will stream the Land of the Lustrous television anime series in the United States and Canada starting on June 17. HIDIVE will add new episodes every Sunday.
HIDIVE describes the series:
In the distant future, new life forms known as Gems inhabit the Earth. These immortal beings find themselves under attack by the Lunarians, who use the shattered bodies of the Gems as decorations. For this reason, each of the Gems are assigned a purpose. However, being one of the frailest of the group and with no particular skill, Phos is assigned by Kongō, the master of Gems, to create an encyclopedia of natural history. The mission to accomplish this task takes Phos on an unexpected journey.
The 12-episode series originally premiered on October 7. HIDIVE streamed the series outside of the United States and Canada as it aired. Amazon's now-defunct Anime Strike service streamed the series in the United States and Canada as it aired.
The anime adapts Haruko Ichikawa's Land of the Lustrous (Hōseki no Kuni) manga.
Takahiko Kyōgoku (Love Live! School idol project, GATE) directed the anime at the Orange CG animation studio (CG in new Evangelion, Macross Frontier movies). Toshiya Ono (Suite Precure, Gatchaman Crowds, The Perfect Insider) was in charge of the series scripts. Asako Nishida (Simoun, Love Live! School idol project, Active Raid) designed the characters.
