    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Sentai Filmworks Licenses 'Land of the Lustrous'

    HOUSTON, TX, September 27, 2017 - Sentai Filmworks delves into a mysterious new land in their newest acquisition for the Fall 2017 season: Land of the Lustrous. The series will soon be available to stream in the U.S. on Anime Strike, the curated on-demand anime subscription from Amazon Channels.

    In the distant future, microscopic organisms have left the planet desolate and given way to a new life form: Houseki. However, all is not peaceful. The 28 Houseki must fight against the Moon Dwellers, beings who attack them without discrimination and use their shattered bodies as decorations. For this reason, each Houseki is assigned a role, whether it be a fighter or a medic. Phosphophyllite, or Phos, is the youngest of their kin, and has not been given an assignment due to a lack of skill. Everything changes when Kongou, the leader of the Houseki, assigns Phos the task of creating an encyclopedia of natural history.

    Animation Production will be handled by Orange (Dimension W, Ginga Kikotai Majestic Prince Movie). Takahiko Kyogoku (GATE, Love Live! School Idol Project) will direct the series, with series composition by Toshiya Ono (Gatchman Crowds, Perfect Insider).

    Land of the Lustrous will soon be available to stream on Anime Strike for $4.99 per month after a 7-day free trial, and available in non-US territories through select digital outlets for the October 2017 simulcast season, with a home video release to follow.

    This is something that could have gone either way between Sentai or Crunchyroll, and it ends up with Sentai. This is another one of those shows that turns things into lovely ladies just like with what Kancolle did with battleships and Kemono Friends did with animals. This time, minerals become girls in this.

            Good. A great show. Deserves a dub.

              There was never any question that this show was getting a dub as it's a great show. It started off slow, but things picked up in a big way and it was over before I knew it. I was just a bit worried when other shows were getting dubs to stretch their budget for dubs, but it turns out that Sentai is out to dub more shows than ever seeing that in addition to this show that several other lesser shows are getting it. Seeing that the characters are all genderless that it will be interesting to see how these characters are referenced as in the dub.

                      Not sure when this was added, but via TRSI:
                      Land of the Lustrous contains anime episodes 1-12 in a Steelbook Case while supplies last.
                      SteelBook Edition is only available as part of a LIMITED 1ST RUN ONLY.
                      And via Sentai Shop:
                      LIMITED 1ST RUN ONLY
                      SteelBook Edition is only available for pre-order while supplies last.
                      So I'm guessing it's going to switch over to a regular edition once the first print is gone?
                      It's in stock early at TRSI.

                        It's been listed like that since September in the Sentai Shop.

                            Not sure why I didn't mention it in this thread.

                            Personally I consider all SteelBook releases as LE.
