While conversing with the slug, who is revealed to be an Admirabilis named Ventricosus, Phos hears more about Cinnabar from Kongo. Hearing from Ventricosus that there is someone like them in their homeland, Phos decides to go under the sea, where Ventricosus transforms into a more feminine humanoid form. Ventricosus explains how humans once roamed the planet before evolving into three separate species representing flesh, bone, and soul; the Admirabilis, the jewel people, and the Lunarians. Upon reaching their destination, Phos discovers that they had been led into a trap by Ventricosus, who wishes to give Phos to the Lunarians in exchange for her captured brother, Aculeatus.

Really good episode. Shame to see a lot of people were turned off by this show initially. It's definitely one of my favorites this season.

Oh my! OK- Love Antarc. Wonder about how those arms will turn out. But even more than that I wondered why a mineral based lifeform had to hibernate. They aren't like a plant that photosynthesizes (though that is what they made it sound like) and should not be so dependent on sunlight that there isn't enough in winter time (with all that reflected light off the snow) if at all. I mean this show just made a living mineral need sunlight to live. Though I don't agree with that, the funny thing is thinking about what I would replace sunlight with has me stumped. What is something that could be considered an essential common and basic building block or component to all minerals?

Glad to see the Amethyst twins are ok. This was a pretty funny episode, but of course it has to end like most episodes do, on a bad note

The ice's keening was horrifying

Because this anime has no reference point in reality (beyond the minerals), I find the mysteries of the show very interesting - what does it mean that the ice is full of microorganism 'sinners'? What are the microorganisms that animate the minerals?

I wonder what happened to slug king, is she frozen?

Land of the Lustrous EP 7 "Hibernation"

Land of the Lustros is a strange world ! / but an amazing anime really one my top favs

Ruthie puts Amethyst twins back together ! ( I like to know about resin )

I like the twins hair / one has a left braid the other right



Amethyst

Left one (a.k.a. "84") is sociable and right one (a.k.a. "33") is phlegmatic )(Four temperaments?). Their hardness is 7.

https://myanimelist.net/character/123157/Amethyst

Phos is there kneeling saying she was scared but the twins says we were kinda of showing off

Alexandrite comes in wanting to know abouy the new Lunarians weapon but they cant remember ad say ask Phos who is running away

She ends up in Ciinnibar's area and its starting to snow

Every Year the gems hibernate except a lookout or 2 but Phos deosnt want to sleep despir being the first to last year and then the last to awake

( IDK about Lunarians whether they are affected too by the cold and dont attack?)

They do come around but Master Kongo can easily deal with them / also Antarcticite who is usyally in liquid form soldifies in winter

Cinnibar sleeps in her cave The gems make a huge sleeping area for themselves

Master Kongo feels sorry for being alone but wait Phos cant sllep and peeks around the corner

MasterKongo tas there up despite A's objections as her reputation is weel known

But A relents having Phos help and as Phos finds out winter is hard / tiring

A tales Phos to the water where the ice floes are made of microorganisms Master calls them Sinners

The Floes are noisy and A has to cut them up to be quieter.

A teaches Phos how to do it but shre gets stres fractures and A has to dust her with resin

They also have to shovel snow away / more resin for Phos

Another duty they have to cover the gems if they get restless like Bort sleep walking evem Master Kongo denting a wall and sleeping up right.

Phos hears a voice "are you alright " A says they talk but its gibberish but Phos can understand them They talk to master who says ingnore as they are using their fears to ampifly them A rells masterPhos is not doing bad but wisshes Phos had arms like her legs Phos has her Ive tool and puts it to the arm but the stops saying what am I doing A voice from the floes you would be stronger with new arms and offers to bite them off The floe knows avout Cinnibar too Phos goes to the floe to stick her hand but pulls it back and falls into the water A gets her out minus arms ......

Antarcticite is a male

He's in charge of winter. He behaves like a soldier and like an only child. His hardness is 3.

https://myanimelist.net/character/123177/Antarcticite

Land of the Lustrous EP 8 "Antarcticite"

I swear each EP gets even better I say this and Made In Abyss are Top contenders for AOTY IMO

Winter was Antarcticite's world he knew well



Phos reflects ?



As tragic as this was with the loss of Antarcticite it was an epic effort on his part

Master admiiting shortcomings / but the big thing did Phos change into somerhing the gems need a OP protector if she can manage the gold

Antarcticite dives in to look for Phos arms but no luck

Antarcticite / Phos make it back to Master Kongo who looks shocked at Phos condition w/o the arms even in pieces Kongo cant repair her arms

Antarcticite takes respombililty for what happened but Phos says its her fault Antarcticite wants to look again but Master stops him and hugs him saying I am too !

Phos says you can use somethimg else for her arms but there is nothing so he sends both to the Chord Shore ( The birthplace of all the gems ) for suitable material .

There is a huge rock where micro organisms die in the sea and rise up with the rock a gem tries to be born but fails Antarcticite uses his weapon to clear the snow where there is more material on the ground

There is only gold amd platinum on the ground which are tpp soft and heavy but they try one arm of gold If Phos body doesnt reject it Antarcticite tries to think of ways it could be made lighter

All of a suuden the gold grows another arm and keeps expanding

Just then Lunarians appear at the Chord Shore and the gems residence where Kongo has to fight them there and unable to help Phos / Antarcticite

The gold engulfs PHOS

The Lunarians bow before Kongo ( is there a past connection?) and then hang onto him keping him there anf has to fight them off

Antarcticite fights hard against the Lunarians but the new type wasnt destroyed

As Kongo fights an huge explosion happens at the gems residence distracting Antarcticite whose hand is shot off and taken by the Lunarians

Antarcticite weapon is destroyed thus he fights by himself The Lunarians wrap strans around him which start to fracture him but he breaks the new type by pulling on the cables

He survies but pieces of him are strewn about Phos is encased in like gold box As Antarcticite tries break the box he is shattered by another attack

Phos is horrified and tries to say Antarcticite he just enough to put a finger to his mouth to convey be quiet !Also the liquid gold creates hands to muffle her

The Lunarians land and pick up the pieces of Antarcticite as Phos wants the gold to change so she could fight she does the gold weight slows her down but she tries only to fall short as she pur herself in danger fracturing her body Kongo arrives take a shot at the Lunarians but they get away with the remants of Antarcticite

They sure had a lot of pent up energy after the hibernation. Poor Sensei.
