Sinopsis: Ceres: una ciudad sin ética ni tabúes, gobernada por los instintos y la lujuria. Así son los suburbios – inmutables, eternos, hogar de las pobres y enjauladas almas afligidas por una melancolía perpetua.
Después de tres años, Riki vuelve inesperadamente a Ceres, pero no todo va bien. El “Carisma” de los suburbios es un hombre cambiado. Enfrentado a la creciente sospecha de que ha perdido la chispa, y atormentado por el recuerdo de lo que pasó durante esos tres años apartado de los suburbios, Riki se ve involucrado en la cada vez más violenta guerra de bandas, mientras que los rivales intentan aniquilar a su pandilla antes de que puedan reagruparse en torno a su recién recuperado líder. Y luego está el alarmantemente frío y desgraciadamente familiar hombre al que un día conoce por casualidad: el hermoso Iason Mink. ¿Qué secretos hay detrás de la sonrisa de ese cautivador Blondie?

Ai no Kusabi Volumen 2: Destiny
Sinopsis: While cruising for cash cards from unwary tourists in the city of Midas, the slum mongrel Riki never imagined that he’d meet an elite Blondy like Iason Mink. Was it chance or the workings of fate that brought this unlikely pair together? Nine years ago, a stroke of luck landed the King of Bison a job as a courier—a veritable ticket out of the slums. He found himself under the employ of Katze, a man whose origins were not so different from his own. Inspired by this man’s success, Riki learned the ropes and became known as “Riki the Black” for his exploits within the black market. But even as he moved up in the world, a shadow threatened to pull him down—a memory of the meeting he had with a certain Tanagura Blondy— and leave him a thrall to its presence. Little did Riki know, it was more than just Iason’s memory that enslaved him…

Sinopsis: Riki is back in Eos and under Iason the Tanagura Blondy’s power once again. Under the watchful eye of his new furniture Cal, Riki endures being a captive again as best he can. Ignoring the hateful glances and whispers of the other pets in the salon, Riki escapes to the tranquility of Eos’s garden where he can relax alone. But Riki’s fragile peace is shattered by the reappearance of a singular Paradita hybrid—a pet of unusual breed—who is obsessed with a certain slumdog.
Meanwhile, Riki’s old friends Guy and Luke find themselves in a dicey situation. Kirie’s betrayal and Riki’s disappearance from Ceres force Guy to seek information from Zico, a mysterious data broker in the dangerous slum wastes of Nier Darts.

The Paradita’s obsession with Riki reaches a devastating climax and Iason Mink is forced to take action. Riki’s captivity reaches a new level of depravity as Iason proves once and for all that Riki completely belongs to him—mind, soul and body.
