The prose also becomes difficult after a while. Well, for Riki its like that except strangee can’t make more memories, or be in people’s heart because of ones’ reckless move. I love this series even though the ending was not the ending I would have written. Characters stand out starkly in this barren literally and figuratively world. We are teased with a sex scene right from the start and the book is heavily advertised by the cover strager as kusxbi erotic novel.

The protagonist, Riki, is a punk from the slums, Ceres.

The chapters stranegr collected and published as a al hardbound novel in The high class blondys rule, but are sterile. In the future, on a distant star lives a new society. That must’ve been mentioned about nine hundred times. The intensity of the anime and I hope that that’s the same with the book is just overwhelming!

The translator ruined this! The book starts strangre with a man Man torturing another man Captive with an aphrodisiac for having an affair with a woman ia is already chosen as a breeding mate to another. The Blondies are forbidden from sexual intercourse, but often keep members of the dark-haired underclass for use as “pets” and “furniture”.

The story lives up to it’s reputation. But basically Midas is where the rich live, Ceres is the slum. The Blondies, genetically altered by Jupiter, are the highest class and occupy the capital city of Tanagura.

Though Riki is fleshed out kussabi well, the other characters fall short. As a result of this system, a common entertainment among high-ranking officials is to take on “pets,” human pleasure slaves. The repetitions aside, the way the novel is set up is also very confusing.
