The elegant new action manga that is now a major anime! By Haruko Ichikawa, winner of the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize.

In a world inhabited by crystalline lifeforms called The Lustrous, every unique gem must fight for their way of life against the threat of lunarians who would turn them into decorations. Phosphophyllite, the most fragile and brittle of gems, longs to join the battle. When Phos is instead assigned to complete a natural history of their world, it sounds like a dull and pointless task. But this new job brings Phos into contact with Cinnabar, a gem forced to live in isolation. Can Phos's seemingly mundane assignment lead both Phos and Cinnabar to the fulfillment they desire?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a work of art I absolutely love this series, the visuals especially, it isn't your typical "manga-style" but it flows so well with the story. The concept itself is unique, even though its said to appeal to fans of Steven Universe, they differ greatly, the only similarity being that they're both stories of anthropomorphic gems. The characters of Land of the Lustrous are a bit more fleshed out, and their emotions are conveyed in a manner that you can't help but sympathize with them.

Editorial Reviews

"Beautiful... Ichikawa captures a kinetic energy that flows almost like water. Visually stunning and the most thought provoking work in the visual medium of 2017 so far." -Adventures in Poor Taste

"Ravishes you with artwork so beautiful and strange it's hard to look away." -The Manga Critic
