|Ai no Kusabi 1 -DESTINY-
Original Work: Yoshihara Rieko
Release Date: 2007/05/25
Iason is a genetically modified elite “Blondie” from computer city Tanagura which is controlled by a huge computer Jupiter. Riki is a slum mongrel from the lowest class of pleasure city Midas. The two of them have come across each other unexpectedly. And Iason is interested in Riki who doesn’t know how to flatter and submit to authority.
Um…uh…um…how should I put this? I’ve lost my words. LOL But since I’ve listened, I felt like I should say something.
This drama is based on the original novel by Yoshihara Rieko, which has been later adopted into a popular OVA, multiple drama CDs and OST CDs. It’s a remake of the classic drama played by the late legendary Shiozawa Kaneto and Seki Toshihiko. Here I also want to mention that Shiozawa-san has been my most beloved seiyuu and he will always live in my heart. *bows*
That being said, I didn’t expect the new version will be as good as the original. I have tried hard not to bring any emotions when I listened to this CD, but I failed terribly. What is this, cosplaying Iason and Riki? @_@ Ahhhh!!!
But…if you haven’t heard the original, it’s good to give this new version a try. Since Yoshihara-sensei’s work is such a classic piece. ^^
