Explosion is the forty second chapter of Haruko Ichikawa's manga Land of the Lustrous.


Continuing on from the previous chapter, Phosphophyllite, Cairngorm, Sphene, and Peridot are dealing with a new form of Lunarians in the form of game pieces. They quickly discover that the small pieces are fragmenting them and placing them into a bowl filled with their pieces. The four try different tactics to deal with this menace, quickly, before they're all taken piece by piece.

Hemimorphite meanwhile is attempting to wake Sensei up to get him to help, but is unable to wake him. Jade and Euclase assist Hemimorphite.

Self doubt begins to plague Phos as actual Lunarians appear to pick up the pieces that the game pieces have gotten. The four attempt to fight with what they still have before an arrow/harpoon manages to catch through Cairngorm, Sphene and Peridot and render them immobile. Phos has been cracked in half and is unable to help and realizes that their friends will be taken away as usual with their plans going nowhere.

Thankfully the last panel shows Bort, Zircon, and Watermelon Tourmaline arriving to help.
