Land of the Lustrous Manga Is Going on Hiatus

The February 2021 issue of Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine has announced that Haruko Ichikawa’s Land of the Lustrous (Hōseki no Kuni) manga is going on hiatus beginning in the next issue. The magazine and its official website will reveal information about the series’ return in the future.

The story of Land of the Lustruous is described as:

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?

Ichikawa launched Land of the Lustrous in Kodansha’s Afternoon magazine in 2012. Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga in English.
