Will There Be Land Of the Lustrous Season 2? (Updated in 2024)

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 2024 and the likely release date as well.

The Land of the Lustrous anime, or Hōseki no Kuni in Japanese, 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 Studio Orange made no movie or OVA 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 remaining hopeful that Land of the Lustrous will get a Season 2.

Over the last nine years, I’ve examined hundreds of anime sequels. Some examples are:

So continue reading if you want to learn if Land of the Lustrous will return for a new season and the likely Season 2 release date.


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 2024 and the likely Land of the Lustrous season 2 release date.

The first factor is the source material, and the second is the profitability of the first season.

We will now examine both of these factors to assess the likelihood of a second season.

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 January 2024, Land of the Lustrous has 12 volumes. 

Is the Land of the Lustrous manga finished? The series is definitely going to end in the next one to two volumes, but the manga goes on unannounced hiatuses, like in 2020 and 2023, so it may be a while.

Haruko Ichikawa published the latest volume in Japan on November 22, 2022.

Where in the manga does Land of the Lustrous leave off? The anime adaptation covers the first five volumes of the manga. I’d suggest reading from volume one. The art style is distinct from the anime, and they rushed the adaptation of volume 5.

So, if you want to continue the story from where season one of the anime ended, have a look at Land of the Lustrous Manga Volume 5 in English.

The first season of Land of the Lustrous rushed through volumes 1 to 4 and fumbled volume 5. So, the second season will likely start from volume 5 and end at 8.

That means there is enough content for season 2 and even season 3.

I highly recommend checking out the Land of the Lustrous Manga. Many fans prefer the manga, which is the only way to continue the story in 2024.

Land of the Lustrous’s Profitability And Sales Figures

The cost of anime production (millions per series) makes profitability critical.

How good were Land of The Lustrous Blu-ray sales? Land of the Lustrous Blu-ray sales were great for the first season, averaging around 6,000 copies per Disk.

That is amazing for 2017 when disk sales played a big role in determining whether an anime would get a new season.

How popular is Land of the Lustrous manga? Even years after the 2017 anime adaptation, Land of the Lustrous remains a popular manga. Volumes 11 and 12, released in 2020 and 2022, sold more than 110,000 and 125,000 copies, respectively.

With over 1.8 million copies in circulation by 2018, while it may not have reached mainstream levels of popularity and is not even in the top 500 manga series, it is great for a niche series.

How much merchandise is there? A surprising amount of Land of The Lustrous merchandise is available, with over 400 unique items! Less than 20% of all anime series get more than this. However, there are only around five figmas.

The Phos cosplay costume is undeniably cool, but if you’re looking for something that truly stands out, the Phosphophyllite Diamond Dog pillow takes the cake.

I think it’s clear now that this series didn’t flop and has been financially successful, making money from merchandise, Blu-ray, and manga sales.

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 2024, 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 this year.

Land of the Lustrous Season 2 will likely never happen if there is no news about it in 2024.

As shown above, there is more than enough source material for a second season, and this series made enough money.

The problem is that Beastars blew up, so Studio Orange decided to go all out on more Beastars seasons while the hype is still huge, and Netflix is paying before hopefully continuing Land of the Lustrous.

However, 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. It’s also been seven years, and that hurts the popularity.

I’d say the second season has a 20% chance of happening, thanks to the fact that the first season did not sell poorly.

This year, Studio Orange will animate the Beastar’s Final Season.

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 really hope they do make a season 2.

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 Land of the Lustrous to their portfolio.

Last Thoughts

In summary, there is a decent chance there will be a Land of the Lustrous Season 2. We should learn more about if there will be a Houseki No Kuni Season 2 in 2024. But don’t expect the release date for the second season to be any time soon. The earliest I could see it is 2025/6.
