Land of the Lustrous is a 2017 released anime series that is written and directed by the duo of Takahiko Kyōgoku and Toshiya Ono, while production of the series was undertaken by Orange, a computer graphics animation studio. The series original run lasted from October 7, 2017, to December 23, 2017, and relied on the manga series of the same name as its source material, which was written by Haruko Ichikawa.
The series became the subject of critical acclaim, with particular praise directed to the animation work that was undertaken, and is also considered to be a turning point for computer graphics-based anime. The writing of the series too received praise, with the characters being cited as likeable and the setting as intriguing. It also received multiple awards and nominations, most of which were directed towards its visuals.
With the first season being so well-received, it is no surprise that the show was a hit among fans. Owing to this fact, the expectations and anticipations for a second season of the series are soaring. Here’s everything that is known thus far concerning the show’s renewal
The Premise of Land of the Lustrous
The premise of the series is futuristic, being set in the far future. The site of its proceedings is a land inhabited by a life form that enjoys immortality called the Lustrous. These inhabitants are the embodiments of gemstones. They are 28 of them, led by Kongo, their teacher. They are at warheads with the Lunarians, who appear every few days looking to harvest the bodies of the Lustrous for decorative purposes.
The series follows a Lustrous nick-named Phos primarily, although it does shift focus more often than not. Phos is the youngest of the Lustrous, owing to which he is not permitted to engage in battle. As a result, he is tasked by Kongo to assemble a natural history. In this process, Phos meets a night watch named Cinnabar, who is venomous and therefore isolated from the Lustrous. Taking sympathy at his plight, Phos decides to find him a better job, kicking off the proceedings of the series.
When Will Land of the Lustrous Season 2 Release Coming ?
As much as there is excitement surrounding the second season, Orange has not yet announced the show’s renewal, which is surprising to many given the almost immediate success of the first season and the impact it has on the sales of the manga, nearly doubling it. The show was also a huge hit among fans, with many people cosplaying its characters to this day.
The manga itself has enough source material to substantiate a second season, however, that holds no relevance unless the makers and the production team show an interest in renewing the series. Some estimates state that the series may get renewed in 2022, but these are mostly just baseless forecasts, and only time will tell if they take actual shape.
