@Milwaen, I added pic from official ank website here, pic album , then all can see it easy .
I have some pic more from new character design and from trailer, I can upload them into my album if anybody wants.
Raincat: it was a good idea - though, for my biggest disappointment, there's not too much to see I think you should definitely add those other pics, too, to your album!!! The more we can see, the better we can judge
@Milwaen, i do it. Right now im with other com. in countryside for holidays but after 3 days im in city again and with my pc where all stuff is.

About Iason voice actor/ seiyuu : Toru OHKAWA - Anime News Network
Here is list of hes works. You can watch some of them to hear hes voice in diferent roles.
Rikis voice actor: Kentarou ITOU - Anime News Network
Katze voice actor: Shinichiro MIKI - Anime News Network
Gai voice actor: Kousuke TORIUMI - Anime News Network
It's not that I dislike Toru Ohkawa's voice. He is a very good Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist) and I liked him as Kariya (Bount) in Bleach. But he is not Iason (my opinion). I listened the new AnK Drama CDs and I find that Takehito Koyasu would be a better Iason (just my opinion as well). You can't have everything.
Ai no Kusabi was my first yaoi anime. I bought it on eBay back in 2000 or so for like $3 (before there was really anything to find about this type of stuff online) and just fell in love with it. I still have that orig disk... it was a very very bad copy of the 2 OVAs (I now have much better versions LOL), and it will always be my favorite.
I found on ebay AI NO KUSABI Doujinshi Anthology Book 1995 yaoi /US $11.99 eBay.com.my: AI NO KUSABI Doujinshi Anthology Book 1995 yaoi (item 280283867111 end time Aug 06, 2009 22:24:53 MYT)
