With its sleek production design and animation, “Land of the Lustrous” proved to many skeptics that 3-D anime can be just as effective as traditional hand-drawn methods. Based on the manga by Haruko Ichikawa of the same name, it’s the story of immortal, androgynous beings made of precious gems defending themselves from attacks by a mysterious force from the moon. “Land of the Lustrous” wasn’t just well-animated: a haunting soundtrack and quiet character moments helped crystallize it into one of the year’s best.
