this only goes for straight men and lesbians. xP

otherwords, thus this series looks sexy so far.
Not really lesbians. Lesbians find this just as hot as the sane females...or insane females, doesn't really matter does it?...do...

i've been proven wrong on the previous page.
only straight men don't like yaoi.

Wow, just a few months a go we yaoi-lovers were complaining that there weren't enough (or really any) long yaoi series, and now look. Not to mention a couple of interesting OVA's coming up. But I guess that happens occasionally. Now I wish they would finish a few stuck in limbo.

Ai no Kusabi, well I saw the original and it is: I'm giving away the ending here *WARNING*


And, it shouldn't matter if there are people who hate yaoi, since there are also people who love it; no one is making me watch loli moe hentai or giant robots if I don't want to. Everyone has their own taste. They wouldn't be making it if there weren't enough people to watch it (or buy it).

This news is making me so happy ^_^. I hope they'll stay faithful to the novels, and since Yoshihara sensei is behind the script, there's a good chance of a good translation from paper to video .

Ah, to see Iason and Riki yet again *_* (not to mention, everyone else -Katze**-)

I wonder if they'll use the original voice actors. o.o I just loved Shiozawa Kaneto as Iason. Iason looks ugly on the official website though, like he's permanently constipated. x.x

Ah, and I wonder if this anime will actually include yaoi... softcore or hardcore... hopefully when it comes to DVD it will be unmasked. XD

I dunno who they could pick to voice Iason, since Shiozawa's been dead since 2000.

What, really? Well that sucks. I guess I have more trouble than I thought keeping track of which LoGH voice actors are alive or dead... I dunno who could top Shiozawa's voice then. Koyasu Takehito's kinda similar though.

I admit, I was shocked too when I found out.

I just looked up Koyasu, and that's not a bad choice for a voice actor, given the fact that he's also voiced Ritsu Minami (Loveless), Seishirou Sakurazuka (Tokyo Babylon), and others. :D

The sollution passes, obviously, by ressurection through alchemic ways.

Out of joke, a total remake with totally different voices would not be bad either.

Koyasu's voiced in a yaoi before too, and BL audio dramas, so I don't think he would be close minded towards this role.

In case that somebody cares, it is assumed that the new OVAs will use the same cast as the new CD dramas made after Shiozawa's death. And that would be the following:

Iason - Tooru Ookawa (mostly known to the mainstream audience as Roy Mustang from FMA)

Riki - Kentarou Itou

Katze - Shinichiro Miki

Raoul - Takaya Kuroda

Guy - Kousuke Toriumi

Daryl - Takehito Koyasu

As you see, Koyasu voiced another character in the CD dramas (Daryl is Iason's current Furniture and he doesn't even appear in the first OVA, although he had a prominent role in the novels) so it is not very probable that he'll take the leading role.

Besides, Ookawa did sound damn sexy as Mustang...

In the new drama CDs Koyasu doesn't voice Daryl (however interesting it might have been XD) but another Blondie whose name escapes me at the moment.
I don't think it's been reported they're going to use the same cast, although it sounds sensible ^^.

Will they also remake/revise the graphics/art style or probably just make the character design finer or not at all? Hmm, let's see.

I would love to watch the subbed DVD after...since it's prolly uncensored. On the second thought, I'll be excited not to able to wait for it and watch it while airing (which is censored I bet :( )

New designs are at the site. Equal to the original, just with a different art style. It seems pretty much amazing to me. ^^

Hahaha. Thanks. I was lazy to look it up and finally I did because you pointed it out. I don't know what to really feel with the new art style. I have mix feelings about the new and old one. ^ ^

Yeah, and let's be real, even being yaoi, Ai no Kusabi is simply SO MUCH MORE!

I swear the last thing i was thinking while watching this anime for the 2nd time was "wow, yaoi *-*"...

Ai no Kusabi is a Masterpiece! One of the most beautiful love stories I ever saw in animes, and still having a WTF! That's AWESOME background story!!

I'm RLY RLY RLY anxious to see this remake, cause I was totally thinking "this should have more episodes" when the OVAs ended.

And I'm rly rly rly afraid of what they'll do, asking myself if they can maintain the awesomeness of the original OVAs *_* *crossed fingers*

Just so everyone knows, the studio that was making this went bankrupt and so the project was cancelled.

Really good news! It's hardly to believe that this project revived, but I think they made the right decision. Such a popular title will be profitable anyway.
Let's hope they will not twist the conception much.

Annnnd, of course, it gets cancelled after 4 episodes. AHHHHHHHRGHRGRHJKGFSFSDLHFHSK

Might as well just start hunting for a copy of the books I guess /sigh
Pure, unadulterated madness. All that remains to one who has lost every other human emotion.
