YAOI NEWS: Sex Pistols OVA 2 Delayed… Again

Sorry kids… looks like Sex Pistols OVA 2 has been delayed again. As you can see above on the main site, it now shows 4/27/11 and they also posted the below stating the same (yes, it's a terrible translation but you can see where they changed the date from December of 2010 to April of 2011):

Sex Pistols is also known here as Love Pistols and the manga is published by BLU, an imprint of TOKYOPOP. You can find information about the Sex Pistols OVA's at this website.

UPDATE: The DVD has shipped!

    While I understand the need to deliver a good product to the masses, as well as funding issues involved, I am still deeply disappointed by this. And with no news from the Ai no Kusabi remake team, it makes me feel like yaoi is a genre doomed to be promoted solely through manga. Saddening thought, that.

    I don’t hold out much hope on the Ai no Kusabi remake (no new info on the site since last April). Such a shame because even the website is HOT! I was stoked to see such a high quality boys’ love anime come out. Unfortunately high quality means high money and there just isn’t much to go around for that. Funny thing is, when I interviewed Hinako Takanaga and asked her about any of her works being animated, she made a comment about people looking into animated boys’ love as a recent occurrence. (That hasn’t been posted yet but will be in the next few days) :-)

    A friend of mine from Japan got me an AnK remake poster and some postcards back when they launched the merchandise, and given those and the preview clip I thought the new design was amazing! That view of Tanagura Tower had me staring for hours… So it is truly a pity there has been no news there. I do hold on to the faint thread of hope that it’s been put on hold rather than abandoned outright.

    Yes, Boy’s Love, but does that mean yaoi? There’s been shonen-ai stuff, mostly. Uragiri wa Boku no Icantspellitright and (a sadly de-yaoi-fied) Togainu no Chi are prime examples. Still, there’s always just one or two per season, if that. And I want more! *is insatiable*

    That Viewfinder animix, on the other hand… I’ve survived the years of delay, and now to finally see it happen, it is such joy!

    I think Viewfinder is a prime example of boys’ love not being animated. It’s one of THE most popular titles out there and it doesn’t even get an anime. Takanaga said she is still surprised Tyrant got animated. I guess they probably are still testing the waters and that’s why we only ever get the light or watered down stuff. Oh well.

  • This is really sad. I was so looking forward to it coming out next month, cause I was hoping its release date would coincide with my b-day. That would have been an awesome b-day present. Plus with Blu not releasing anymore of the Love Pistols vols, the OVA is all I have to look forward to.

    I think the long delay is because BLU manga publishing will be finished for good at end of may and as for the rest of the Love Pistol mangas you can either buy the original japanese or wait until someone scans and translates online.

  • I have to say that I’m really excited that they animated Tyrant. I don’t not like Viewfinder, but I don’t like the story nearly as much as some of Ayano’s other works. I’m really sick of BL releases that focus on messed up relationships that have a master/slave or sado-masochist feel.

    Sure Tyrant has hiccups story-line wise, but for all that it’s a pretty straight-forward love story. If we’re going to talk Ayano Yamane work that should be animated, I would LOVE an animated version of Crimson Spell.

    I agree with the idea of animating Crimson Spell. It’s an absolutely beautifully done yaoi and an amazing fantasy storyline as well! Not to mention there are enough parts that just make ur heart squeeze itself from the angst~ >w<

  • sex pistols delayed again!!? … nooo i cant wait to watch it :(

  • [...] UPDATE: It has been delayed again. Find details here. [...]

  • Aggggh. Le gasp. The HORROR.

    Ah. Well its better then Sex Pistols never being animated at all, right?

    I mean if we could wait for Junjou Romantica season 2, we can’t wait for this epic story too! ://D

    I think my fellow yaoi fangirls can agree with me on this, yo. .w. <333

  • My laptop self-destruct after Yaoi-Con 2010 (I wonder why). I just got a new one and I’m reading this post.

    It seems that either everyone is being cautious of releasing this great art, or slow in getting everything together for release. Either way, it’s sad that we have to wait. Then again, the wait will be worth it when the final product is produced for all to savor and enjoy. So, I will wait once again and thanks for all the work you’re putting into these projects.

  • Alright here is my take on the yaoi/shonen-ai animation.

    The thing is I just wish they had a long, lengthy plot filled yaoi that isn’t watered down to the point when their is hardly any boys love. Where is another series like Junjo Romantica, where it had two seasons of good plot and excellent character development? When are the yaoi fans going to get a boys love like that again? I had my hopes on Ai no Kusabi but they where quickly dashed when they cancelled the project. Although I love my yaoi deeply, I’m sick of the OVAs with only one or two episodes. I want a season or two of awesome characters. When are we going to get that?

    Togainu No Chi is an awesome shonen-ai, the plot is excellent and the characters personalities are the same as the game, however why did they water down so much? The game is intensely yaoi, but the English manga and the anime have little to no boys love in it. Why are the creators doing this? Is it to make it marketable to males as well? I’m not sure, but I just want some yaoi to stick to it’s content when it turns anime. I don’t want it to be watered down, and if it keeps this content I don’t want it to be just two episodes with no freaking plot.

    What I would hope turns into an anime is something different, I’m sick of this PWP thing. Let’s actually keep the point of the manga. I want Under Grand Hotel to be made into a anime. Granted this wouldn’t be an extremely long anime, but I’m sure it would be more than two episodes. Crimson Spell would be a wonderful one, if they have the third one out *grumbles*. Boy’s Love in my opinion should be animated because it is already a live action and should stay like that. Let’s get some new and interesting manga and make it a anime. Let’s get that popular Boys Love Game and actually keep it the way it was suppose to be, extremely bloody and and sexy at the same time.

  • April will be a great month, sekaiichi hatsukoi and Sex pistols will (for the last one) finally be realeased
    But I don’t know why but I don’t really like Viewfinder, probably because of the uke.
    I’m totally with SINgrinz for Under Grand Hotel, not very long but awesome, I think it would still take like 26 eps, but I think there isn’t a single chance to be released… like Dog style and Aoineko Tantei…

  • This is getting really annoying, and irritating! What the fuck?! December, then April!? How the long are they going to fucking make us wait?! UGH! D:<

  • Well, finally, after months – practically a year if not more – of waiting, we can anticipate the coming date.

    Hopefully they won’t pull off another AnK – one heartbreak is enough.

    I can only hope they live up to their claims and make the second episode dazzling like Yonekuni’s hair.

  • Yay! I just saw some of the clips and it is amazing! I can’t wait for it only 21 left till it’s realse and I was worried that they would postpone it cause of the earthquake but it seem that they are realse it the 27 but it cost so much. I hope it goes well. I just can’t wait. i read the manga and cried in vol 2 but happen seen much relationship going on between yonikuni and shiro since then. I hope to see more. Awesome. Wahoooo!
