Although the other employees treated Riki terribly strange being a slum mongrel, Katze and Riki formed a mutual respect for each other and Katze took Riki under his wing. I really appreciate it.

Thank you so much for all the work you put into these books, and I hope the next time you write a story that it would be unrealistic unexplained strangfr and realistic people usually have a happy ending once in their lifetime at the same time.

A new twelve-episode OVA adaptation, also from AIC, was scheduled to begin releasing in Japan in the spring ofbut was cancelled for financial reasons.

And strajger characters I found most intriguing seemed to show up and then go offstage for too long – whether that will correct itself in the rest of the series I don’t know. The rest of the book is different from the first chapter in that every bit of information is spoon fed to the reader more than once.


Seeing Riki’s current state, Guy recalls one night before Riki’s “disappearance” when he that came home with expensive wine.

After three years, Riki unexpectedly returns to Ceres, but all is not well. It’s very well thought out and has that classic dystopian setting so popular nl science fiction novels.

Angel Rabbie Tenchi Muyo! It also spends too much time telling what Riki is supposedly like rather than showing. It was very well written, and I enjoyed reading each page. A perfect, glittering world exists side by side with a festering slum.

Did I mention how much I loved this series? Ai no Kusabi 8 books. Apparently it is the entire first chapter of the hardbound version as its own volume! Meanwhile, Kirie comes to collect his payment for his role in Bison’s capture, but is betrayed by Iason and is forced to “learn the ways of Tanagura”. Get to Know Us.

Theirs is a dark, twisted relationship in which neither will submit to the other and ultimately ends in tragedy. The Blondies, genetically altered by Jupiter, are the highest class and occupy the capital city of Tanagura.

But basically Midas is where the rich live, Si is the slum. The only reason he sticks with Bison is because of strangdr name Bison made for itself at the height of its success. So, naturally I was very excited to learn the original novel was finally being translated to English!


But it never arrived. I am really mad, because I had to PAY for this shit! I picked this up at the post office on Monday. The first book might be a little confusing and slow, this is the kind of series that you have to read till the end. Kirie stays behind to have an audience with Iason in hopes to find a way out of the slums.

The high class blondys rule, but are sterile. In the future, on a distant star lives a new society. Though it is only implied, Riki was once the “pet” of a high class blondy called Iason.

Apr 27, Amber rated it really liked it. I don’t generally care for gangfight type storylines and the translation or the way the author writes is odd, but I’m thrilled kkusabi reading a yaoi that cares enough to have such an elaborate backstory. Elites of Tanagura, Midas citizens, and Mongrels from Ceres.
