Okane ga Nai/No Money Yaoi Manga to Return in February

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Manga adaptation of light novel series first launched in 2002

The January issue of Gentosha Comics' Lynx magazine announced on December 9 that Hitoyo Shinozaki and Tohru Kousaka's Okane ga Nai yaoi manga will return in the March issue on February 9. The magazine originally announced the series would end in the January issue.

Shinozaki launched the original light novel series with illustrations by Kousaka in 1999. In 2002, Kousaka began illustrating a manga adaptation, and Oakla Publishing Co., Ltd. published both versions until Gentosha Comics took over publication in 2003. Gentosha Comics published the eighth light novel volume on March 26 and the 10th compiled manga volume on March 24.

The story follows university student Yukiya Ayase, who finds himself on the sale block when he is betrayed by his cousin, Tetsuo, in hopes of making enough money to pay off Tetsuo's debts. Ayase is bought by a mean-tempered loan shark named Somuku Kanou who requires Ayase to pay back the cost.

Lilix (Holy Knight) adapted the manga into a four-episode original video anime (OVA) in 2007. Media Blasters released the adult anime with the title No Money in North America as part of its Kitty Media imprint on two DVDs.
