Description: In the distant future, a new life form called Houseki (gems) are born. The 28 Houseki must fight against the moon dwellers 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 they hope to fight the moon dwellers, Phos is a gem who is given no assignment until the gems' master Adamantine asks them to write an encyclopedia.

@tathra I think kingfarley meant the front page image of this manga, it IS spoilerific for new readers. Shouldn't we change it to volume 1 cover?

@Umesan Euclase is the evil mastermind, you baaaaa-ka.

Euclase is usually the most normal w/o any special traits aside from her appearance throughout the series, and here, she's the first one who brings about an idea to move everyone to action. That's really saying something.

We are all replenished and replaced with time. Some people more and more obviously than others.

Don't think it unnatural as that is how we also grow and mature (and ultimately decline and die as the processes of change start to break down).

Is phos even phos anymore? Not really, only their torso is their own, who knows for how much longer. I agree with the seven treasures of Buddhism theory, which means they're only halfway changed.

@alhazred: I'm assuming the latter. Seems like Kongou would love them all unconditionally and understands the changes that Phos went though, though it'll be interesting to see if the other gems see Phos as a traitor or something next chapter(s).

Kinda hard to call Phos by that name at this point. I mean, what is Phosphophyllite made of at this point? Far too many things.
Alhazred23 5 months ago
Ch. 64: Well, i suppose that makes it much less likely that Kongou had something to do with the genesis of the gems, though it's still suspicious that he describes them as a creature closer to his own composition than he'd ever previously seen. It's also interesting that calls Phos "the one formerly called Phosphophyllite." Has Phos been stricken from their society, or is he acknowledging the changes Phos has undergone in some fashion?
