Synopsis

Yukiya Ayase is a gentle, kind hearted, and innocent university student. The only relative he has left, his cousin Tetsuo, betrays Ayase by selling him to the highest bidder in an auction with hopes of making an enormous profit to be able to pay off his debts. Somuku Kanou, a bad-tempered (though very rich) loan shark, comes to Ayase's rescue and buys Ayase for an impressive 1.2 billion. Kanou apparently knows Ayase from something that happened between them in the past, but Ayase cannot remember who Kanou is nor does he understand why he "saved" him. In a desperate effort to keep Ayase close to him, Kanou demands the debt be repaid in full and suggests the perfect way to do it: by selling his body to Kanou for 500,000 each time. Ayase is horrified in the beginning, but something soon begins to grow between them that can't be bought for any price.

This is the second yaoi I've ever watched. It KILLED all my good-hearted intentions to give yaoi a chance. This anime is story-less, senseless and totally pointless. It's pure yaoi fanservice, there is no trace of romance if you ask me.

~Story~ (3)
A young boy sold on auction. The buyer wants him to fall in love with him. He pays him for sex. Wait, what?
Putting aside the obvious moral issues I have with this and quite baffling, weird and quite disgusting concept - these 4 episodes contain nothing that's connected to what it should be connected. It's a mix of explicit scenes, tears and rapes. Rather read more

Okane Ga Nai is about Ayase, an 18-year old boy, who is sold on auction by his cousin, so that said cousin can pay off his debts. Ayase is bought by the handsome and violent Kanou, who Ayase apparently helped in the past or something. What he did is never really explained, but it was enough for Kanou to fall in love with him.
In the beginning you think; "Oh, that's adorable. He came to save him and now maybe Ayase will fall in love with him and they'll live happily ever after."
Sadly, that's not what happens.
Instead, Ayase wants to save his cousin from read more

I have to admit, Okane ga Nai scared the fuck out of me the first time I watched it in my middle school years.

I was always scared about what would happen to the uke since I put myself into his shoes. Every episode increased my chances of a heart attack until I finished the series with sweat and hot breath. Even the most gruesome torture horror packed anime can't touch upon what I experienced from this yaoi.

Story: I can't. I just can't relive these memories.

Art: It was real enough to immerse me inside its reality.

Sound: The uke's screams sounded exactly like the read more

Okane ga nai is everything that is wrong with the yaoi genre, and it was painfiul to sit through.

Plot:
Okane ga nai's biggest sin is that it's trying to portray itself as romantic, when in reality it is very sick. It is constantly trying to make the viewer think "oh isn't that sweet, they love eachother!", by having the characters in various dramatic situations where at the end they like eachother more. The truth is that this is a story about a possesive man, who become obssessed with a boy because he lent him an umbrella on a rainy day, who believes that raping is read more
