question from a fan

I have a question and i'm new so please forgive me if i'm being rude by posting this here
I love the Ai no kusabi novels and i read the english volumes and i felt like there were parts from the original novel that were left out .Am i wrong ? I heard the author rewrote the newer novels adding extras plots to it but did she also cut some parts too?


Hello... I have doubts. First: I am sorry if there is mistakes, english it is not my first language.

Well, I have read again Ai no Kusabi novels until vol 7.
Is there any chance to download vol 8?
I was looking in different pages to buy it and it cost really a lot of money.
$66.000 in chilean money.

And I read that the english translation is censured, is that truth?

Sorry... I am really thinking that I am the only fan who speak spanish, I do not have where to ask

Hello, folks! Not only did my Ai no Kusabi DVD came in today from Media Blasters, but today is the release date of Volume 8 of the series, courtesy of DMP/June! Check it out here~

Now, onto my review! I really just skimmed the episodes on the DVD, but it was enough in my opinion.

Good points: Quality is great, of course; Scenes Selection; Subtitles option; Promotional videos (nothing special, really, but it was nice of them to put it on); and Creditless Opening and Endings (yes, they did it for all of them.)

Bad points: The only compliant have on this is the subtitles themselves. Media Blasters did not translate the the dialogue word for word; instead, they merely get straight to the point (Ex: The scene where Orphe told Iason that Riki needs a "lesson in bed", which was the translation used by Aarinfantasy, was translated into "We need to discuss it carefully again. Iason.") Not only that, they also messed up Raoul's name (put it out as "Raul", but for some strange reason, they had "Raoul" in the very end credits). They also try not to use words like "sex" and "come" a lot, but they still use it. There are also minor grammar (such as not using the comma when it needed) and minor spelling mistakes, but it's cool. Not a big deal. I'm not notpicky, and I understand that supporting the anime is still important no matter what, espcially when that anime is yaoi. Yaoi is very hard to come by in the U.S, and yeah sure, you can watch pirated stuff off the web, but just keep in mind that stuff is going to get deleted off sites like YouTube sooner or later and watching from stuff like that only HURTS the anime industry.

This is my own personal opinion, but if I were to rate this DVD one out of five, I'll give a four, just because of the subtitles mistakes. I strongly believe that it's still worthy of purchase because I honestly love the series and I want to do what I can to support it. Cheers, everyone! :)

New member with some questions!

Hello everyone! I'm Melly and I've been a fan of ANK for a while now. I found this community through a link and thought it would be great to have some friends I could chat with! Anyway I hope this isn't against the rules( and i'm sorry if it is, I'm new to this), but I did have some questions if I could! Anyway here goes:

1: Many moons ago I remember the "Taming Riki" series before the lady (Kira something?) made her own website and you had to pay to read it. Now it's like it has become bigger than the original!!!!! Most FF's and FA I see is based on her work. Apparently she has made her own comic based on her FF? I'm so confused with the whole thing? Is she working with the real owners/creators of ANK? I just don't get it >.<'. Should I be considering her works as part of the real OVA/novel.

2:I just got back into the fandom ( I saw the OVA before I even knew anything) and I guess there was a novel first? Then an OVA, then a new novel and OVA?!?! I'm so confused??! I feel like I'm lost!! I don't know where to start or end!

Sorry if this is against the rules or annoying! I'm just brain muddled and need some guidance??

Thanks and I look forward to some new friends!!
