*Based on a manga of the same name by Ichikawa Haruko, serialised in Afternoon.

In the distant future, a new life form called Houseki is born. The 28 Houseki must fight against the Tsukijin who want to attack them and turn them into decorations, thus each gem is assigned a role such as a fighter or a medic. Though she hopes to fight the moon people, Phos is a gem who is given no assignment until the gems' manager Kongo asks her to edit a natural history magazine.

Note: A promotional video that was released through YouTube in commemoration of the publication of the manga's first volume.

I didn't know about this manga or this short before, but after I caught up with the Fall 2017 anime I found out about it and became very interested in it. This is a promotional video made several years before the anime with a very different style.

1. Story- 5/10

Not bad honestly, and it couldn't help the extremely short time lenghth-the a of the story was decent. We were given a brief presentation of the atmosphere-mostly a mysterious drama with plenty of action, and bits of both comedic and tragic moments sprinkled within-but not much else. But yeah, there wasn't much there to learn read more
