Cover of Monthly Afternoon issue June:

Land of the Lustrous made its debut in October 2012 and achieved recognition by appearing in Kono Manga ga Sugoi!’s annual ranking on two occasions. Throughout its run, the manga experienced several hiatuses. Additionally, it was adapted into a highly praised anime by the studio Orange.

Kodansha USA oversees the official English version publication of the manga, providing readers with access to the story:

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?
