Is Land of the Lustrous Season 2 confirmed? Land of the Lustrous Season 2 has yet to be officially confirmed, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime series.
The question is, will there be a season 2 of Land of the Lustrous? And when is Land of the Lustrous Season 2 coming out?
Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not Land of the Lustrous anime season 2 will happen in 2023, as well as the likely release date.
The Land of the Lustrous anime, known as Hōseki no Kuni in Japan, is based on a successful manga.
Haruko Ichikawa wrote and illustrated the Land of the Lustrous manga series.
Land of the Lustrous is a fantastic action drama series with fantasy and mystery elements, so it’s no wonder that fans are asking if Land of the Lustrous will have a season 2.
The main character of this anime series is Phosphophyllite, the youngest and clumsiest gem.
The story is about the youngest and most delicate gem, who aspires to aid the war effort against the Lunarians who seek to harvest them for jewelry. Because of its fragile state, Phosphophyllite gets tasked with compiling an encyclopedia.
How many seasons of Land of the Lustrous are there? There is only one season of Land of the Lustrous anime. So there is no season 2 of Land of the Lustrous yet.
The first season is the only thing you can watch since there was no movie or OVA made for the Land of the Lustrous series yet.
The first season of the Land of the Lustrous anime, with 12 episodes, premiered in Japan in October 2017. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still hoping that Land of the Lustrous will get a Season 2.
Over the last six years, I’ve examined hundreds of anime sequels. Some examples are:

Will There Be A Season 2 Of Land of the Lustrous?
We must look at two factors to determine if there will be a Land of the Lustrous season 2 in 2023 and the likely Land of the Lustrous season 2 release date.
The first factor is the source material, and the second is how much profit the first season made.
We will now examine both to see if Land of the Lustrous will have a season 2 or not.
Land of the Lustrous Season 2 Manga
For the Land of the Lustrous anime, the source material is manga.
How many volumes of Land of the Lustrous are there? As of September 2023, there are 12 volumes of Land of the Lustrous.
Is the Land of The Lustrous manga finished? The Land of the Lustrous manga is still currently ongoing. However, Land of the Lustrous is 95% done according to the publisher.
Haruko Ichikawa published the latest volume in Japan on November 22, 2022.
Land of the Lustrous Volume 13 Release Date? The exact release date for volume 13 has yet to be confirmed, but it should be out sometime in 2024.
Where to start reading Land of the Lustrous after the end of the first season? The manga volume after the first season is Volume 5.
So, if you want to continue the story from where the anime ended, have a look at Land of the Lustrous Manga Volume 5.
The first season adapted volumes 1 to 4. So the second season should likely use volumes 5 to 8.
That means there is enough content for Land of the Lustrous season 2.
I highly recommend checking out the Land of The Lustrous manga. Many fans prefer books over anime, and it is the only way to continue the story in 2023.
Land of the Lustrous’s Profitability And Sales Figures
How well did the Land of The Lustrous Blu-ray sell? The Land of The Lustrous Blu-ray sold roughly 6,000 copies per disk for the first season.
Blu-ray sales of around 6,000 are good, especially for 2017 when disk sales were still crucial for a new season’s chances.
How well does the Land of The Lustrous manga sell? Land of the Lustrous Volume 11 sold 110,000 copies, and the latest volume, Volume 12, sold only around 125,000 copies.
Land of the Lustrous manga sales held good even years after the anime ended. Still, selling only around 100,000 after the anime adaptation is not great for a manga.
How many copies does Land of The Lustrous have in print? As of 2017/05/23, the Land of The Lustrous series had 1,400,000 copies in print.
It is not in the top 200 most popular manga series of all time.
How much merchandise is there for Land of The Lustrous? There are more than 40 figurines, which is a good number. There are also more than 400 pieces of merchandise made for this series.
Less than 20% of all anime series get more than this.
Some of the figures are stunning, like this Phosphophyllite Figma.
I think it’s clear now that this series made enough money to get a second season.
I highly recommend checking out Land of The Lustrous merchandise if you’re a fan of the Houseki no Kuni series. There is some fantastic stuff made for this franchise.
land of the Lustrous Season 2 Release Date
As of January 2023, Land of The Lustrous Season 2 doesn’t have a release date as it is not confirmed yet. However, we should learn if there are any plans for the second season next year.
Houseki No Kuni Season 2 will likely never happen if there is no news about it in 2023.
As shown above, there is more than enough source material for a second season, and this series made enough money.
The problem is that, while it made enough money, it was not a huge hit, and it does not have the backing of Netflix like Beastars does.
The profit was likely modest from the first season, and new seasons often make a lot less money, so a second season may not be worth doing.
I’d say the second season has a 30% chance of happening, thanks to the fact that the first season did not sell poorly.
Next year, Studio Orange will animate the final season of Beastars.
So they’ll either work on Season 2 of Land of the Lustrous or start a new series that they believe will be more profitable.
I don’t believe any other studio would take on this series.
So the best chance for this series is if, following the popularity of Beastars, Netflix would be interested in adding Houseki no Kuni to their portfolio.
