Ai no Kusabi (2012)
Released Year : January 18, 2012 to April 18, 2012
No of Episodes : 4
Genre : Drama,Romance,Sci-Fi,Yaoi
Plot : The story is set in the future on the planet named Amoi which is controlled by a supercomputer named Jupiter. Among the mostly male human population, the light-haired elite class is allowed to temporarily keep the dark-haired "mongrels" as pets. One elite member, Iason, encounters a mongrel named Riki in the slums and decides to take him in. However, Iason keeps Riki longer than it is socially approved, and rumors abound about their possible relationship.
Our Review : Don't waste your time on this remake unless you just want to see a glossier version of the story. Other than that you will get NOTHING from this story. No character develop, no story development, no coherent story, nothing about how Iason and Riki truly feel. Heck you won't even get an ending!! Why didn't they just remaster the original OVAs and call it a day? Now apart of me don't want to blame the production company completely, as they planned to have a full series with 12 episodes but they obviously only had enough to make four and just stopped it right after the ending of the fourth episode. This really blows that stupid and vapid yaois like Junjou Romantica can get two 12 episodic seasons yet a beautiful and sensual story like this one can't even get past the fourth freaking episode. Something is seriously wrong with this people. Anyway, the artwork was great and the sound was wonderful but this 2012 version is proof that artwork and sound are the least most important aspects of an anime. If you want to watch a somewhat full Aino Kusabi story then watch the original one and please read the novels. If you're just curious about how they remade the characters then watch this one and that's all.
