About Land of the Lustrous Manga Volume 1

Land of the Lustrous volume 1 features story and art by Haruko Ichikawa.

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?

An elegant new action manga for fans of Sailor Moon from Haruko Ichikawa, winner of the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize.

Great Art, Fun Action, Memorable Characters, And Some Laughs!

by -

All around very well done. The story is interesting, the characters develop nicely (through multiple volumes) and you really get stuck on the art. Well done!! This one should absolutely be part of your collection. Or at least borrow it from someone, it should be read.

Unique, beautiful, and interesting start

by

I really did enjoy this first volume. Some of the art is just amazing. I like Pho as a character and I am really wanting to keep reading so I can see where everything goes. But I do feel that, at times, the art (especially in the action scenes) is VERY hard to follow. I find that the anime is able to better take advantage of the fight scenes while the manga it gets confusing. But, this is a worth while read.

Beautiful Art and Interesting Story

by -

This manga is full of beautiful art that is sometimes simplistic on the outside but has a unique feel of elegance that makes this art style unique. This is a must read for those who watched the anime as the presentation is unique enough to warrant a read. My favorite part of this story is how interesting and mysterious it is, and the reader is always finding new things about the world without necessarily being told outright.

Intriguing Story and Wonderful Art

Ichikawa does a beautiful job at setting the stage for her unique characters and stunning but desolate world. The story grabbed me right off the bat and I can say that it only gets better as the series progresses. I would definitely recommend picking this up and giving it a try!
