Ai no Kusabi (2012)

Also known as:  Ai no Kusabi OVA 2, Ai no Kusabi OVA Remake, Love Wedge OVA 2, The Space Between OVA 2
Release date:  
The second OVA based on the Ai no Kusabi boys-love novels is once again produced by studio AIC, this time as a 13-volume series. The original novels - also known as Love Wedge or The Space Between, among other titles - were authored by Rieko Yoshihara over 20 years ago. 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. (based on ANN synopsis)

They don't have enough money to keep going right now.

Great. Just getting our hopes up and then dashing them.
Carolwrote on Sep 12, 2010 at 22:12
So, it's not happening? Or, is it going to be postponed until the end of time?
anonymouswrote on Sep 25, 2010 at 23:56
I believe it is just being postponed.
Yuukahhxwrote on Sep 26, 2010 at 07:38
Uh, I got from someone the information that they will be releasing it this fall instead.
anonymouswrote on Oct 3, 2010 at 20:46
It was been fall for a few weeks, already.
anonymouswrote on Oct 3, 2010 at 20:54
I found this.

"BOYS LOVE = HOMOSEXUAL = GAY = YAOI
Series of 13 OVAs based on Rieko Yoshihara's novels. The DVDs were supposed to be released starting spring 2010 but it was postponed.

Since many people were asking and I don't want to repeat myself over and over again, I'll use the screen to reply as well as this description, though I know most people don't bother reading this part.
So why is the release date of Ai no Kusabi remake delayed?

From what I've read and heard, the production is on indefinite hold. Every release date that you will find on the internet from now on and that aren't posted at the Ai no Kusabi's official site are groundless.

It seems the economical crisis directly impacted the production. The staff has very likely been dispatched since the end of spring 2010. And that 8 mn preview episode might be the only thing we'll ever get of that remake. Just wait and pray but the chances for the project to be revived are very weak now.

I'll remind you that Boys Love is a niche market.

It's not Hentai. People confuse often Gay Hentai with Boys Love. Yaoi as a genre does not exist in Japan. There is Boys Love, which is made by women for women, and there is Gay hentai which is made by men for gay men. And there's hentai, which is made for men, who get turn on by anything regardless of the gender of the characters...

The BL productions are far from having as many funds as the hentai industry and even less when compared to the mainstream anime industry. So it's important for BL producers to sell lots of DVDs of the animes they release.

Small profit can just allow some future small project at best, nothing at all at worst.
Big profits allow more projects Świth occasionnally better qualityŚ and reassure financial investors as well as incite them to invest more into the BL productions."

Yeah, I'm not too happy with the news. =/

Shit, shit and re-shit =___= I wanted so bad to see this remake....ahhhh. Guess I'll make myself busy with sex pistols 2 and koi suru boukun 2 for now U___U

Oh noes!
anonymouswrote on Feb 1, 2011 at 22:55
Aww. And I had my hopes up for the new episodes... :'(
meryvampwrote on Apr 8, 2011 at 07:44
Yes, sad news indeed. I didn't realize what a niche market there was for yaoi manga/anime until Sekai-ichi-Hatsukoi episode one was posted on an anime website and I saw all the hate posts. Of course, there were supporters as well, but I can see how hard it is for BL to make it especially in America. For all those yaoi fans out there (like me), keep watching and supporting them!

Looks like the project is in motion again, with the first Blu-ray/DVD planned for release in January 2012 - release dates updated at the top of this page.
