Media Blasters has announced that it will release the 2012 original video anime (OVA) Ai no Kusabi with an English dub in HD on Blu-ray Disc. A release date has not yet been announced.
The four-episode remake series adapts Rieko Yoshihara’s boys-love novels. The anime studio AIC, who previously animated the novels into two video volumes in 1992 and 1994, also animated the remake. AIC director Katsuhito Akiyama and character designer Naoyuki Onda reprised the same roles they performed in the 1992-1994 effort. Yoshihara herself supervised and wrote the scripts. Nobuyuki Abe of On-Lead directed the sound.
