Entering the space between: Do you want to read the novels with us?

Hi folks!

A few months ago, the members of the ANK discord server joined forces to organise a read-along event beginning in January 2019.

So how does it work?

Well, we start with Stranger, then in February we read Destiny, and so on. The idea is that everyone will read the novels on their own schedule during the month and join a designated chat to share their opinions and discuss the books with other fans of the series.

To join the book discussions you need to be a member of the Discord, so here's an invite! Join in, confirm you're 18+ and request access to the NSFW channels, and you're all set!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or utauda14 - we're happy to welcome you in!

In the meantime, please spread the word about the event, and don't worry if you don't have the books on you: we're going to share online copies of the English translations with anyone who asks!

See you then!

Join fans on DW!

Following the Tumblr purge, many ANK-themed blogs on Tumblr were taken down or made private. In addition to this wonderful community and the Discord, there is now a Dreamwidth community for ANK fans. If you're interested in joining or subscribing, please follow this link. Thank you!

Where to buy affordable AnK original novels?

Hi everyone! :-)

So I've been searching for the original AnK light novels by Reiko Yoshihara online, but I only managed to get my hands on affordable copies of volumes 2 and 3 on Amazon. I just can't seem to find any affordable copies of any of the other volumes anywhere online, be they new or used. I did find them on a couple of sites f.e. on Alibris but it said they were unavailable or out of stock so...

Can anyone give me some advice as to where I can find volumes 1, 4, 5, 6, 7 and/or 8 in an online bookstore for an affordable price? I'm willing to go up to around €30 = $35. Thanks for the intel! :-D

"Ai no Kusabi" Master List (Part I): Novels, OVAs, Drama CDs, and Translations

While there is a Master List on the LJ already, I wanted to do my own version and include some new materials that I think will benefit the Ai no Kusabi fandom. I was able to find a lot more official Ai no Kusabi content a few years back and want to share it with the fandom. I know how many fans have been desperately trying to find them for years.

However, because the series is old, the fandom is small and scattered all over the world, and content is only available in Japan, there will be some materials that will not have any links or sources to them. If any fans know where to find some of the missing content on the list or wish to include additional info, please contact me so I can update it. Due to the word limit on LJ, the Master List is split into three parts. Part 2 can be found here and Part 3 can be found here.
