A manga series by Haruko Ichikawa, Houseki no Kuni, or Land of the Lustrous, has been published by Kodansha since 2012. In October 2017, Takahiko Kyogoku and Toshia Ono directed and penned the anime adaptation, which aired for 12 episodes before wrapping up on December 23 of the same year. At Orange Animation Studio, it was created using Computer Graphics (CG). Lunarians, beings who seek to use gems to decorate their homes, attack the Houseki (Jewels), immortal humanoid lifeforms made of priceless gems. Phos, the Housekis’ youngest member, is assigned the task of compiling an encyclopaedia because she is too weak to engage in combat. We’ll talk about the possibility of the second season of Land of the Lustrous in this article.
There is a lot of speculation about the second season of Land of the Lustrous, and we’ll cover it all in this piece. You’ll learn when it might be released if a trailer will be available, and much more about this highly anticipated new anime series.
Land of the Lustrous Season 2 release date
Buddhism had a significant impact on the creation of the Land of the Lustrous. Characters like Master Vajra embody this. As a Japanese Buddhist monk, he always appears to be dressed in traditional garb. The name Ksitigarbha, which he goes by in real life, is also derived from one of the Eight Great Bodhisattvas. In Japan, Ksitigarbha is revered as a guardian of children, who can be transformed into gems by worshippers.
The Selenians had their religious inspiration in the face of Vajra. The manner they arrive in the sky and perform their duties is reminiscent of the Japanese Craig, in which Buddha and a large ensemble of musicians would appear on a cloud after death. While cutting the Moonkin in half after a fight, its interiors reveal a lotus-like pattern, which symbolises purity in Buddhist culture.
It is possible that the Apsaras, Japanese folkloric dancers and musicians derived from Hindu mythology who also fly in clouds, inspired the Selenians. His inspiration for the manga came from his high school reading of sutras.
Phosphophyllite was chosen as the protagonist because the author believes it has the ideal combination of traits for a protagonist: precious and stunningly beautiful, but brittle and unsuitable for use in jewellery.
Since December 2012, the manga has been published in the monthly magazine Monthly Afternoon by Kodansha. To date in December 2020, Japan has seen the publishing of eleven tanks in volumes, with many more chapters to be collected. Pseudomorph of Love, an artbook published solely in Japan in 2017, is another addition to the collection.
It has been shown on AT-X, MBS, and TV Tokyo beginning October 7, 2017, in Japan thanks to an adaptation by Orange Studio. Tokyo’s Yrakucho district hosted an exhibition of the series from January to February 2018 in honour of the first DVD and Blu-ray releases. All of the information in this book pertains to the adaptation, including a detailed look at the storyline, designs for the characters and scenery, as well as 3D animation.
Because there is so much interest and so much more content to adapt, the future of the Land of the Lustrous seems quite promising. We’ll have to wait and watch how well the manga continues to fare before we can make any accurate predictions regarding the series’ future. We’d have to wait until late 2023 at the earliest to learn if there will be a second season, but we’ll need to know for sure in 2022 or 2023.
Land of the Lustrous Season 2 plot
Until we know how many manga chapters will be adapted for Season 2, we have no idea where Land of the Lustrous Season 2 will take us. Specifically, we have no idea how far the second season, if it happens at all, might go due to a general lack of knowledge. Here’s a quick rundown of the show’s storyline.
It is set in the far future when the Earth has been decimated by the impact of six meteorites in quick succession. Instead, a new species known as gems have evolved, with humanoid-like features. Vajra, their protector, has entrusted them with the care of 28 immortal beings. Despite their master’s presence, the jewels are under constant threat by the Selenians, dwellers of the Moon, who want to turn them into ornaments and trinkets.
