    About "Rieko Yoshihara Katsumi Michihara Kelly Quine"

    1. Rieko Yoshihara Katsumi Michihara Kelly Quine

      Japanese author and a key creator of the homoerotic subgenre known in Japan as sh nen ai boys love Yoshihara spent the first three years of her career writing straightforward homoerotic romance, before stumbling into sf, seemingly by accident, with the success of her signature work Ai no Kusabi December 1986 October 1987 Sh setsu June 1990 trans as The Space Between 2007 2008 see Checklist for details Originally published in book form as a single hardback novel, it was later reissued as a six part series, from which the English translation was made.Yoshihara s work is strongly redolent of the sexually charged mysteries of Ranpo Edogawa, and shares many overt themes with the controversial sf of Sh z Numa However, it reached an entirely different audience, one largely unaware of these precursors The world of Ai no Kusabi is divided by decree into classes defined by Genetic Engineering as signalled by the hair colour of the blond rulers and their black haired subjects The Blondies are forbidden from sexual intercourse, but often keep members of the dark haired underclass for use as pets and furniture In an attempt to curtail Overpopulation, no than 10% of births may be female, effectively rendering the milieu as an all male environment, as opposed to the female Keep of Yoshihara s contemporary Yumi Matsuo.In a sense, Yoshihara s work is an extreme comment on Women in SF, by excluding them almost entirely from a narrative of intense homoerotic relationships and macho vendettas In depicting abusive relationships between men, in a world from which women are removed or somehow distanced, she tapped into an unexpectedly large subsection of female fandom Ai no Kusabi found a passionate readership in Japan, sufficient to secure a Seiun Award for its illustrator Katsumi Michihara, although not for its author The series has twice been adapted into anime, as a two part video in 1992 and on DVD in 2012 there have also been CD dramas in the style of Radio plays, as well as a Manga edition Long before its licensed translation in the twenty first century, it gained a similarly passionate fan following at the periphery of US anime fandom, often among viewers who were forced to guess at the Japanese plot In its romanticizing of both abstinence and abuse, it can be seen as a forerunner of certain subsets of twenty first century fantasy, particularly the depiction of Vampires typified by Stephenie Meyer s Twilight series.Ai no Kusabi was the subject of a prolonged fan translation project, the results of which are often at odds with the output of the legal English language publication This is a feature of the sheer fanaticism of Fandom, but also of the many difficulties facing a translator of its complex, multi layered situations Even the title encompasses a multiplicity of meanings, with The Space Between in Japanese also a pun on Bonds of Love , Wedge of Interval and numerous other possible readings Moreover, some of Yoshihara s editions offer a decorative English language subtitle on the Japanese cover, even though her English language title is often an inexact or counter intuitive rendering of the actual Japanese Such fogging of meaning is commonplace in modern Japanese sf, but plays havoc with encyclopedia listings Hisashi Kuroma.Although hardly one of the Mainstream Writers of SF, Yoshihara shares many of their concerns, being primarily an author in one genre her mundane homosexual romances are largely unlisted here , who only occasionally dabbles in Fantastika Several of her other books touch on otherworldly themes Kage no Kan House of Shadows 1994 eroticizes the relationship between Lucifer and his sworn enemy, the archangel Michael Although not listed as a sequel per se, the following year s Satan no F in Seal of Satan 1995 , shares an illustrator, as well as an apparent continuation of the story as Lucifer lives out his exile on Earth Gods and Demons JonC

    1. Icy, cold perfection gets to be awfully boring after a while So when the previously emotionless android Iason Mink finally shows signs of life and warmth, the reader has to sit up and take notice Emotions are plumbed here as psychosexual situations are taken to their absolute limit There are scenes that are decidedly potent in their sexual charge what deepens them from being merely sick thrills are the emotions of the people involved Iason and his fellow Blondys are presumably nothing than andr [...]


    2. An engaging continuation of a great story.I was very intrigued to have a glimpse at those three years that Riki spent as Iason s pet The translation still leaves much to be desired, but it can t spoil my pleasure.And I really don t remember whether it was mentioned in the anime or not that Iason was an android Omg


    3. This book is definitely better than the previous two books except the Chronology that made kinda confused.Well , after reading 3 books of the series I noticed that the ovas are nothing compared to the novels I mean both the old the remake they don t fulfill the story , the characters etc But the most shocking thing to me that Iason sama is an android WTF That was never mentioned in the ovas as much as I remember at least Anyway , I enjoyed it so much I hope the rest will be even better 3


    4. It s good Perhaps the most entertaining volume that those two before it Yet I wish for on what happened between Iason and his recalcitrant pet, Riki It would be lovely if I could read on the new pet training phase with greater details and focus 9th August 2016


    5. This just gets better and better Ahh if only volume 4 wasn t exorbitantly priced T_T I neeeeed ittttt
