Fall 2017 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
The MANGA.TOKYO staff had its share of summer. Now, all we wish is for the hot and humid weather to go away and give its place to the red and cool autumn.
Haruko Ichikawa’s Land of the Lustrous (Houseki no Kuni) released its seventh set of character illustrations, featuring Benitoite and Neptunite.
Benitoite has blue, short hair, and he is very intelligent with a serious personality. Neptunite, who goes by the nickname ‘Nepchii’, is a sharp-tongued, harsh character who is good at espionage activities. His trademark is his long dark hair.
The Houseki no Kuni campaign, which is currently ongoing at all Animates across Japan, gives out cards featuring the new visuals to those who come to the stores. From 26 August, the Benitoite and Neptunite cards are being handed out at random.
Houseki no Kuni, which is serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Afternoon, is an action fantasy set in the distant future and depicts the battle between the jewels and their mysterious enemies, the moon people. The anime will be broadcast from 7 October. It will be directed by Takahiko Kyogoku, the series composition will be done by Toshiya Ohno, character design by Asako Nishida, and the animation studio will be Orange.
