With a father who's a singer, a mother who's a movie star, and an older brother Shougo who's the lead vocalist for the super-popular band "The Crusherz," Sena Izumi—an otaku college student—is the only dull one born into this super-famous and talented family. He loves "Magical Girl LalaLulu" and is working hard to become a mangaka, but one day he winds up appearing in a TV commercial he just can't turn down. There, he's reunited with Ichijou Ryouma, the super-popular young actor he costarred with on a project ten years prior.

It always interests me to see what's newly 'hot' in the yaoi/shonen-ai world, especially those few that are hand-picked to be adapted into anime. Love Stage! is not exactly what I would call a GREAT yaoi, however, it is interesting, entertaining and refreshing enough to earn a good mark. If this is the future of yaoi, then count me on-board.

While the plot sounds as cookie cutter as it gets, the manga manages to subvert some tropes. While the seme (Ryouma) pursues the relationship, Izumi (the uke) ends up taking advantage of his unrequited love, asking him for favors, knowing he won't be turned down. Izumi read more

Yush! My second review. :D

I just recently read this manga (Thanks to my friend in TinierMe who recommended this to me) and WOAH. It's so super adorable... so cute cute cute.. such a cute manga! Did I already say the word, cute? XD

I've only read 8 chapters so far and I could say... it's one of my favorites already.

The story is a bit Shoujo-ish though (Some of the scenes were predictable and cliche), but since I'm a Shoujo Manga fan, too, I really loved it. It's like I'm reading a Shoujo Manga only the pairing is boy x boy (which I really prefer more). Every read more

This manga really made me go "Kyaaaaaa~"
After reading some yaoi drama, this one is a really good break.
Hilarious, sweet and refreshing.

Story: (Warning: Contains spoiler)
Izumi, a wanna-be mangaka from a celebrity family, acted as a girl in a commercial 10 years ago. Ryouma, a popular star, spent those 10 years loving his cute co-star. Now, they are going to act together again, and it seems that his love would not be returned because Izumi is actually a guy.

Art and Characters:
Really cute art! The characters and background are drawn really well. Facial expressions and other movements are also pretty. I find all of the characters read more

I really love this manga and this is just amazing! Probably my favourite yaoi manga of all! I can say it's not very smut or adult because it really focuses on the plot.

People thought the guy was a beatiful girl but little do they know it's actually a guy! And then there's Ryoma who's been inlove with him for 10 years who thought that Izumi was a girl ^^ It's just so cute! I also love the manager and Izumi's brother!

I give it a 9/10 because it's a really great manga. I love the art and the storyline a lot. I haven't finished this since read more

Manga: Gravitation
both are comedies about showbiz. However Gravitation has far more over the top humor and the uke is pursuing the relationship. Gravitation keeps the romance and band plotlines running at an equilibrium. Also Gravitation have strong female characters and straight couples.

Manga: Honto Yajuu
the plot isn't simliar, besides the fact they're both full of funny moments and the couple is very sweet and cute. also they're not too much hardcore yaoi, so maybe if you're not into the genre you still can enjoy both mangas

Manga: Diamond Beat
Both of the protags, male (from Love Stage) and female (from Diamond Beat) were born into a family of entertainment, they both dropped out as well, and both decided to enter into the world of entertainment later on. While the difference being Diamond Beat is shoujo and Love Stage is a BL, don't read if it isn't your preference.

Manga: Mayoeru Shomin ni Ai no Te wo
Both manga's have cute uke's who don't want to be involved with the seme (romantically) in the beginning. In Mayoeru Shomin ni Ai no te o, the seme is a bit more sly with the uke.  
reportRecommended by PandoraxxHearts
Manga: Queens
In both have feminine boys who are the black sheep at their howse one way or another,they have similar humor,art is good in both.If you enjoyed one of them you will probably enjoy the other
