    Land of the Lustrous Manga Confirmed to End With the Next Issue of Kodansha’s Afternoon Magazine

    Land of the Lustrous Manga Returns from Hiatus on February 24

    According to the May issue of Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine, the Land of the Lustrous manga will be ending with the next release of the magazine. The announcement comes just two months after the manga returned from hiatus. The reason for the ending is currently unknown. The next Afternoon issue will release on April 25.

    Kodansha has the entire series to date on their official website. They describe it as follows:

    An elegant new action manga for fans of Sailor Moon and the litany of comics and animation that it inspired, Land of the Lustrous is set in a far future Earth, where humanity’s distant descendants live on in a small group of sexless crystalline beings who must fight off an invasion from the Moon.

    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?

    Additionally, 12 episodes of HIDIVE’s anime adaptation of Land of the Lustrous are available on Amazon Prime Video. The company has not yet confirmed if more episodes will be released in the future. Lastly, The Land of the Lustrous manga will end on April 25 with the next issue of Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine.
