Just watched this and I loved it. Is there any possibility of a season 2? If not I'll read it but I saw that it's on an indefinite hiatus. What are your thoughts on the show? The isolated yet open feeling of the island/school they're protecting, the grand mystery of the Lunarians, the nature of the world they're in, and the cute character designs/personalities were a few of my favorite things
My theory is that Orange really really doesn't want to fuck up the season 2, so they're fucking around with Beastars as practice so they can really nail the LotL sequel. As for the show itself, I rewatched the first episode with a friend and he wasn't interested. Felt a bit infodumpish, but obviously that establishes the setting and doesn't carry on for the whole show. And he missed all the amazing animation and Phos's antics and the way she shatters. I was disappointed in him.
>season 2Never gonna happen, you’ll get more beastars and you’re gonna like it.
Beastars makes much more moneyBesides that, it'd be amazing to see Phos' literal breakdown. What would be a good stopping point though? (Aside from the current chapter)
>>237729946but I dont like it...
>>237729938Frankly if season 2 is the rest of the manga up to this point, then they should indeed practice. The gooby goober Phos' fight is probably hard to animate.
>>237729669This is a good cope >>237729938 but ultimately, it's probably plain profitability, they'll end beastars before even touching hnk unfortunately.
>>237729669Only crunchyroll tards use translated titles.
>>237729669do yourself a favor and never pick up the manga, it borderline ruined the entire series for me with its full retard story, dislikeable characters and hamfisted attempts at explaining absolutely every single thing
>>237729669I finished reading the mango like 2 minutes ago. This is unironically peak fiction, the part that the anime adapted is actually the most boring one. Go read it NOW
>>237732115Look at this shonentard lmao
>>237732115>>237732146the duality of man.
There is no possibility of manga returning, let alone the new season of said title.
>>237729669>Is there any possibility of a season 2?No
>>237732540Why is Dia the best character
>>237732115peak bait, fuck off>>237729669the manga is great and its second half is incredible, the hiatus isn't all that bad either considering it doesn't end on some shitty cliffhanger like HxH does everytime Togashi taps out, this reads like a contained story for the most part
>>237733365She has the best design.
>>237733529Made even better when she became a Moonie
>>237729946why are furfags cancer? They ruin everything
>>237730017>What would be a good stopping point though?probably Phos and friends going to the moon. That'd make both seasons adapt ~30 chapters of material. >>237729946Beastmemes is out of manga to adapt and unless the last arc gets a total rewrite the furries will find some other anime to throw money at anyway. >inb4 Orange announces a furry anime original series after season 3 of beastars
>>237733551rude Dia is best Dia
>>237732540>Is there any possibility of a season 2?maybe in around 10000 years
>>237733710what a psychocute! CUTE!
What are similar manga I can read before this dumb bitch gets her fat ass up from the couch and starts delivering?
>>237733551I really like the contrast between the softness of her bow and the spikes of her dress (based on diamonds, obviously). Also that his sword looks like a microphone, all this reinforcing her inspiration on the idols.
>>237729669I hope there's going to be a S2 eventually, it stopped just before it really got good. I'd recommend the manga anyway.
>>237734186Fire Punch is unironically the closest thing you'll find to HnK
>>237729669Animeonly here as well, I too loved the series and was really bummed that it ended with the typical>real shit starts>lol now read the mangaand I get that it's meant to increase the manga's popularity, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel blue balled. It is a bit info-dumpishin the start, and I need to pick up the manga.to complete the adventures of short haired phos.
>>237734453I've read some chapters of it, since it was made by the author of CSM, but it just kinda didn't click for me. Does it get better?
I just want the hiatus for the manga to be over...
AAAAAAAAAAAI LOVE PHOSSU
>>237734545>Does it get better?it gets much better, it just keeps on getting better and ends on such a high note.definitely worth reading
my town has over 50% of the world's phosphate reserves, which means I have the best claim over Phos as my wife, I'm sorry but you'll have to pick other gems now.
>>237734770no problem, my phos' composition looks like this
>>237729669Read the manga.
>>237729669>s2NO, unfortunately for the time that has passed. They may do a remake, but it may not be as good as their first adaptation.
>>237737228>this time it's in 2DHnK seems to be one of the few shows many seem to give the pass when it comes to CG. Is it possible that a 2D remake would garner bigger streaming numbers than its predecessor?
>>237738467No way, it's part of the charm
>>237738554I agree, CG made the experience much more memorable imo. Same goes for beastars, but the story and characters there are trash compared to HnK. Sad that there are more furries than geologists
>>237738846I'd say the CG works in HnK's favour with them being gemstones rather than fleshy beings, it's more alien and different.
Is Phos a waifu or husbando?
>>237739815Yes, I am.
>>237739815yepI am a faggot
>>237733497>cliffhangerBut it literally stops during the biggest cliffhanger in the manga.
>>237738554huh? it has good animation?
They should just adapt to the hiatus, there's enough content for a season and god knows when ichikawa will stop playing her ps5 and the hiatus will end
>>237729669Of course there is. Once Ornage is done with Beastars, they will get back to Houseki no Kuni...r-right, guys? They need practice for the Moon scenes, right? And it's a great anime. One of my favourites of all time.
>>237740064Lmao what, it was a perfect moment to stop the manga, it could have even ended there and it would be alright. It's a fucking 10000 year timeskip
>>237740609There are barely games on the ps5. Memes aside, do we know if she has any illnesses or pain?
>>237729669I cannot believe they have not made a season 2 Where is my 3dcg of peaceful rocks and Buddhism
So was Bort made into a Lunerian too?
>>237729669I'm confident it'll be after they adapt Beastars entirely
>>237729669i wanna fuck phos's sparkling gemp(b)ussy
>>237742325You'll slice your dick into shreds if you do that anon-kun

who cares about this homo ass series with nonbinary trannyshit characters
Your order of happiness will arrive shortly,remaining time: 99999 years
When did you accept that the hiatus will never end and this series is over?
>>237742751A year ago
>>237734770ha! I live where the clearest phosphophyllite crystals are extractedI'd rather a Cairngorm loli wife though
I don't think I've seen any other series where the MC gradually changes physically and mentally over the course of the plot, little by little to such a huge extent. Usually you have some character development here and there but for Phos it's a constant thing. He probably has a dozen design variations by now and I can't remember all of them.
>>237729669Lets settle this once and for all:Are all of the characters female (like the author said), male (like reddit thinks they are) and/or rocks/trans (like /a/ thinks they are)?
>>237744152They are nonbinary
>>237744152Real answer is neither, they're living rocks but I still call the gemgirls because they look like fucking women
>>237744152Gems are girls to me by virtue of them loking and sounding like girls. That said they>Look and sound like girls>use male pronouns>are actually genderless rocksThat said the optimal option is to do what the official translation did and simply not use pronouns
>>237739815I care not for the damage I will do to myself. I will physically love these rocks.
Has it been 10,000 years yet?
There can't be that many games for the ps5...right?
so if they don't have private parts, what exactly would be the most intimate thing you could do with a rock? What do they do with each other?
>>237746982No, but can you wake me up when that does happen?
>>237748317>>237748396A lot more too...
>>237748317High Gempact Sexual Violence
Aleki sensei besto gemfu 10/10
Finished the manga, liked nearly everything about it except how Aechmea Balls ends up pretending all of this was part of keikaku even though so fucking much of this shit was outside of his hands. I'd have rather the story unfold the exact same way except he just stays quiet with his rock bride
Cairngorm is a NIGGER
>>237744152Dia, obviously, is a woman.
>>237732540Yo, quick question. I am new to Houseki, but enjoyed it very much. If sensei didn't have all his programming blocking him could (if he wanted to) have repelled this force? Like the whole army of Lunarians, would he have been able to beat them?
>>237747546She's on NG++++++++++++++++++++ on DeS now
>>237750907She's playing the shitty version of Demon's.
>>237750578Kongo could have beat anyone. The lunarians said they had'nt figured out how to recreate his material and that he was virtually indestructible. kongo "lost" because he wanted to.
>>237733365Makes my dick rock hard
How important was Antar to Phos?
>>237752363didn't you read/watch? he was very important
>>237752673Honestly, I hardly remember anything, I watched the series 4 years ago, and I haven't read the manga
>>237752780you really should read the manga anon
>>237752856Yes, I will, thanks to this thread it caught my attention again. Btw, thanks for the answer >>237752673
>>237729669As far as I recall it did to pretty well financially, but the studio hasn't really released anything about a sequel, they seem to be sticking to beastars for now. I wouldn't say it's impossible, but I'm not keeping my hopes up.
>>237744152> like the author saidwhat? didn't she just say that she didn't care what pronouns were used in other languages?
>>237752363Very important, but more in a guilt way rather than a purely friendship based way. He only really knew Antarc for one winter, but given how Antarcs death was (by Phos's perspective) caused pretty much entirely by Phos's own mistakes (getting his arms cut off + the pair only going to the far away rock that day so that they could look for materials for Phos + the fact that Phos literally couldn't run away at the time, forcing Antarc to stay and protect him, etc) His death ended up hitting him the hardest and sticking with him even after such a long time.
I love phos
>>237729669>He doesn't know the pain of waiting 10,000 years on hiatus for the author to stop playing her ps5 and just write the rest of her fucking story>Thankfully only 9,999 years to go since it's been a year since the last chapter release
>>237742482And the problem is...?
>>237747546Elden Ring will keep her buys I'm sure
>>237732115cairngorn is annoying as hell apart from that fuck you
>>237744152>the gems have no gender they are rocks>draws them all femalea real headcranker
>>237756483I mean, I wouldn't call a mannequin a male or female regardless of the shape of it, same applies here, they may look female but they're pretty much equivalent to dolls. Plus its worth keeping in mind that Sensei sculpts them to look more feminine because of his professor or whatever that reasoning was, raw gems just kinda look like spindly aliens.
>>237747546She'll get tired of Bugsnax eventually. Just be patient.
If I'm getting a HnK tattoo what should I get, currently thinking about>>237733622
Now that the dust has settled, is Phos a boy or a girl?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA I RABU PHOOOSSSSU
>>237757102A girl who transform into a real boy
>>237748317i'd rub my weiner between their polished smooth thighs
>>237742680It's only like that if you bothered with the fandom, cock lust repressed anon.
>>237757102I’m a gay who would much rather the gems be shota, but it’s always been obvious to me that they’re female
>>237752546Phos became a boy
>>237757102they don't even have genitals, they can be whatever they want
>>237757102Boy. Girl. In the end non of that matters. The only thing that truly matters is the booty.
>>237758335In a way Dia is attracted to his own ass
>>237757102ksy faggot, stop derailing the thread
>>237748317>they don't have private partsNot a problem.
>>237744152They are the spawn of Hell, a mockery of life, the only thing they need to be identified as is "abomination."
>>237750349Reminder that all gems are whited with powder, so basically Bort is the niggest of them all
>>237760015Nigger is a state of mind and Cairngorm is lazy, violent, and dependent on moon welfare.
>>237733710>>237733647>>237733551>>237733365I hate this stupid cunt so much, goddamn.
>>237740609>>237741316She's been working on the new Pokemon game.
>>237760542>That absolute disgust on Bortz and CinnabarPerfect.
>>237761022>gamefreak ruins everything>AGAIN FUCK POKEMON.
>>237761063She took a previous hiatus during Sword/Shield's development to do some character/monster design for them. Given how long this one's been, Ichikawa probably has a much bigger role on the design team for Gen IX.
>>237760873Dia a cute, CUTE!
>>237760873take that back
>>237750012Big butt Alex
Hosukky no Kunny
for some reason I just cannot imagine a season 2 with the moon arc, it's as if that arc doesn't properly work if there are colors, it HAS to be in black and white, despite the whole point of the show being about gems of different colors I just think the moon parts work so well in black and whiteNot that we're ever getting a second season
Stop making thread about this and let me forget itI am convinced that the mangaka went on hiatus because she wrote herself into a corner and has no idea how to end itWe will probably never see an ending
>>237744152>Are all of the characters female (like the author said)>>237753596>what? didn't she just say that she didn't care what pronouns were used in other languages?Stop acting like drooling retards. From Ichikawa's 'Kono manga ga sugoi' interview:Q:>宝石たちは神秘的な妖しい魅力があって、とてもセクシーに感じます。性別がないという設定ですが、どんなイメージを持って描いているのでしょう。A:>上半身は少年、下半身は少女を意識して描いてます。鉱物の無機質無生殖といった“ないないづくし”を表現するにはいちばん「色っぽい」のではと判断しました。TL:>The gems have an unusual, mysterious charm. I feel that makes them very sexy. We know they are sexless, but how do you see and draw them?>I draw the upper part boy-like and the lower part girl-like; the inorganic, asexual ‘complete nothing’ of the minerals is definitely the most alluring thing to me.
>>237766725>asexual ‘complete nothing’ of the minerals is definitely the most alluring thing to meshe's just like me fr!
>>237729669Could it be the real reason why the manga went on hiatus was because the mangaka had a baby?
>>237769052It could be. It seems extremely unlikely, but it could be
>>237770083Well, it is the only thing that I could think of to explain such a long hiatus. Either that, or Ishikawa's health has declined tremendously, through some accident or illness
Started watching it today and currently I'm on episode 3. So far it's okay but the CGI is a bit jarring to look at.
>>237770201Or she could just not be sure how she wants to continue/end it, or she's busy with something else, or she don't want to let it go, or she's just being lazy. It doesn't have to be anything so dramatic, I just wish we knew more than nothing.
>>237733365Menhera idol Dia is best Dia.
>>237765839i think the moon would work in antichamber or manifold garden aesthetic. you can still see stuff even if its white and black
>>237734545Hopefully this doesn't spoil much, but the story changes a lot (on purpose). The edgefest of the start is not something that continues through the rest of the manga and it's not really played in a straightforward way. The plot is kinda schizo.
>>237769052>born in November 22, 1980doubt
>>237761022Gamefreak, those monsters.
proper adaptation when?
>>237772408the anime we got was decent for cgi shit but this looks so much better
>>237773003>decent for cgithis is like saying dogshit smells decent for being shit
>>237772408cgi looks better and I'm tired of pretending it does not
>>237729669Will we ever see him happy again?
>>237773534remember when you were a child and everything was colorful and beautiful and now everything is awful and soulless? well that
>>237774264>remember when you were a child and everything was colorful and beautiful and now everything is awful and soulless?No. Everything's better now that I'm not a sad child forced to submit to the whims of others. I'm now a manchild who can wear just my underwear all goddamn day drink all the chocolate milk I want.
>>237773534after our marriage
>>237747546Anon...it's backwards compatible
>>237771074There's still time for me to make her a mommy, we will our autistic children together
>>237777176maybe Ichikawa doesn't know that
still cant believe people ships these two. didn't they talk for like 5 panels or something?
>>237779228Shitppers gonna shitp
DON'T CARESTILL FAPPING TO PHOS AND NOT FEEL GAY ABOUT IT
>>237779228Wow, this is both admirable and quite strange.
>>237766725>I draw the upper part boy-like and the lower part girl-like
>>237780433that shoulder width is and are size is definitely that of a girl's though
>>237781215definitely just stroked out a bit there. Sorry everyone, forget it.
>>237781215>that shoulder width is and are size is definitely that of a girl's though
>>237780433>dfc, must rub
>>237729669I found it underwhelming
>>237781571>pici don't get it
>>237763542No, she's an evil and jealous bitch. Fuck her. Fuck her in the ear.
>>237750202>pretendingdude had literal millennia to plan things, it's not unreasonable to assume he set some things in motion and used the moon tech to screw over Phos at opportune times.I also believe the theory that he had tried grooming other gems (mainly Yellow) for the role of traitor by yoinking their partners but intentionally leaving them behind, but Phos was just more suitable in the end.
>>237780433The anime didn't portray them as well as the manga does, especially the later portions of the manga where Phos especially looks pretty androgynous/alien from the waist up.
Today I'll remind all of you that I was here in these threads making "phos becomes a human" posts ever since she got those legs when she drifted to the sea.
>>237729669Love it, ending up becoming one of my top 5 manga and anime
Long hair LaPhos, my beloved.
Necrobumping our bi-monthly gem thread
>>237790751well, we have to spend these 9999 years somehow
>>237729938The implication being that they didn't fuck up the first season? Come on now. They should've gone with traditional animation and everyone knows this.
>>237766725Therefore gems are sexless but being attracted to gembutts is 100% straight
>>237729669I don't like the show because of the CGI. There were some pre-production demos made in traditional animation by Orange that looked amazing, and I feel like we were robbed of a much better product. At the time, making this show in 3D made sense for the studio since it was a technological investment and they could better study the workflow, so it is what it is. The manga I feel is a masterpiece, it's one of those rare titles that has a very unique atmosphere and you emotionally understand what is going on thematically. The art is also incredibly good, particularly the beautiful high contrast art that is almost naïve in style. The storytelling is first and foremost allegorical and based on the interplay of these very particular psychological archetypes; their clashes and their developments all make sense. There is also some levity to lighten up things somewhat, but when it's serious, it's serious. Highly recommend it.
I read the manga, but I missed a lot of stuff. Had to guess just about everything whenever there was a fight scene, which was probably part of it.>When did they mention Obsidian? I didn't even know he even existed by the end.>Is there anything important about Alexandrite (blindfolded girl) other than she gets angry when she sees moon people? Does she switch to getting angry when she sees gems?>Where has Red Diamond appeared outside of being the first gem Sensei met?>Did the sea slugs really turn stupid once they lived on the moon?
>>237791190it wasn't a fuck up
>>237791495It did a number of things very well. The direction was nice for the most part and the voice acting was excellent. But visually it was far bellow what it should have been and failed to even capture the visual impact of the manga. This isn't even a controversial opinion.
So what do you think is going to happen?I think Phos will turn into a new Sensei and raise new gems, then get attached to them and refuse to pray everyone to death just like Kongo and the cycle continues. Or maybe she'll find a way to just pray away the ones that want to disappear in the end.
>>237791806I think we will all die before the 10,000 year hiatus finishes.
>>237791806everyone dies except for sensei and phosphos says "how disgusting"
>>237791354alright I read the wiki
>>237791806I too think Phos raising new gems and being their onee-san would make sense as a start for a part 2, perhaps the protagonist perspective will shift from her to one of these newly "born" gems as she unravels the mysteries of her teacher
Phos is so sexy
>>237792136>the new gems want to protect phos because of her fragility instead of being wired to do so like they did with senseii would like that direction just because of that.still, I believe we wont jump to something like thay right away. i bet well have a sea arc again or something like that. maybe antarc goimg back to earth and confronting phos? i dunno but we jumping straight to the end feels weord to me (it would make for a nice cliffhanger volume wise tho)
Does anyone have a fan art of Phos on the moon posing with her sword pointed downwards and a golden arch streaming above her? Behind her a lunar city like a bismuth crystal. I've searched the boorus but I think the artist issued a take down request, I also recall the artist was on Twitter and complained about the gold rendering taking too long.Sorry for the strange request. But it's my favourite fan art of Phos and I lost it when my hard drive crashed.
>>237729669I fucking love Kurosawa as the voice of Phos, it's so cute. But I read the manga and know where this goes so I need my Kurosawa dose somewhere else...
>>237788820I was so happy when she got the ponytail, it was so easy to identify her. Then she cut it off and got freaky and now I guess it's still easy to identify her...
>>237729669phos didn't suffer enough
if I didn't fix it after reading the manga, I'm a lost cause
>>237793696well yeah, she barely begun her 10000 years
does phos have to be intact for the power to transfer?
Whats the eye Aechmea shoves into phos?I think it was very clearly implied it had the trace of humanity the lunarians had in the tank and phos himself refers to feeling the same wayor is there something else going on besides that?
>>237794112i read that not as him literally inserting a human string into phos and more as in foreshadowing of his plans on her
>>237781374>ignored>>237766725boy-like upper part is basicly the same as a flat girl, and since the bottom part is girl-like, it's basicly like a sexless harem of pretty girls with flat chests that also happen to be rocks
>>237744152>canonicallythey/them/it because they are LITERALLY ROCKS they have no gender! it’s not because of any non binary alphabet people bullshit it’s because they are quite LITERALLY ROCKS you would not refer to a rock as he/she. the ONLY gem that has a proper pronoun is cringeworm who got sissified by aechmea.>according to reddit and (trans)latorshe, due to retarded people pushing gender politics under the guise of gems referring themselves as he due to sensei identifying himself as a he and that’s all they know. while this could be considered a sound argument it is ultimately head canon.>according to retards and shounen spicsshe due to letting their hate for certain groups of people blind them to the facts.>according to people who actually like the mangagembutts!
HnK is just GANTZ but more pretentious.
>>237791223depends which part of the gem is most appealing to you. I want to rub my face up and down and all over padparadscha's chest.
>>237740064Yeah but cliffhangers like that aren't even an uncommon end to a series, especially not japanese ones.Everything is said and done, will Phos pray for humanity or tell them to fuck off would be an ok open ending.But it isn't an ending it's a hiatus, so it hurts till it's officially discontinued but even so we are left better off than in the fucking middle of an arc with nothing resolved.
>>237740064it really doesn't feel like a cliffhanger
>>237791602Voice acting and sound design were top notch. The physicality of the characters (mo cap?) was also generally excellent and the hair looks amazing. But too much camera swoopy stuff and they didn't find any way of translating all the stark lighting contrasts of the manga. I wonder how they would try to deal with the lunerians and their cities.
>>237772408a justifiable sacrifice for better Dia hair
>>237729669>I'll read it but I saw that it's on an indefinite hiatusBut we already have date for next chapter, just read it, next chapter will come soon
One of my favourite things about this series is how noone stays static through itFriends becoming enemies new people showing up and dying and other things like this are great
>>237757102There are still gems to dust thoOr more accurately a gem
>>237773534Right after Phos creates her own rock harem!
>>237757102Like how ships are called "she" phos is a woman. It has already been clarified by the author >>237766725 The only posters that resent that are literal faggots and trannys. No joke look at this guy >>237757596
Wasn't Phos technically organic since he got the legs?
>>237791806what we know:>Phos is now human>was manipulated by Aechmea>10000 years is the time required for a soul to "ascend"So I think Phos will become a god or a god-like horror but I don't know if she'd pray willingly or try to take revenge on Aechmea and everyone else
>be troon>see she>NOOOOOO ITS A HE IT A HE LIKE MEEEEE>commit suicide
>>237799405I get this dude, turning someone utterly ignorant of sex into sex obsessed maniac focused on you is fucking hotBut did he really had to do it with a nigger?

the hiatus will end soonichikawa take my energy
