Meet our main character. He's a spirited young fellow who's working/wants to be working in the field of manga. He had a fateful encounter with another man in the past, and after many years of separation, their paths cross once more... only for him to suddenly get a good look at his admirer's less savoury sides. Sexy comedy hijinks ensue, there's also at least one secondary couple to take the heat off the main dudes every once in a while.
As in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, Love Stage!!'s two main characters met when they were younger and they had some kind of connection. They meet again a few years later by pure luck (a Commercial in LS and a Publishing Company in SH).
Both series are also related since Onodera Ritsu and Takano Masamune work in a Manga Publishing Company and Sena Izumi from Love Stage!! aspires to be a Mangaka.
has characters that isn't into boyxboy but after hanging out with each other..they slowly falls for each other. although sekai has more "force" into making the main character to actually fall in love with him.
Sekai has probably the most similarities to love stage. in both story telling and relationships, but there arent many Yaoi of this sort out there.
Both are funny shonen ai anime with comedy and romance. Both have the world of entertainment (Music/Actors). I am completely sure if you like one you'll like the other and they are easy to watch for any new bl watcher, very soft and funny (they are strong in comedy)
They are both shounen-ai which focus on entartainment business. Unlike the majority of this genre, both of their drawings are so refreshing and funnier. I highly recommend that if you love one of them, then you should give a chance to the other.
They're both very similar in terms of romance, the main difference is that in Gravitation, Shindou Shuichi falls in love and wants the popular Yuki Eiri, while in Love Stage!!, the popular Ichijou Ryouma is in love with Sena Izumi.
If you enjoyed that anime you will definitely love this one as well. I personally consider Gravitation to be a masterpiece. It also has the bonus of being about music. :)
These are similar in a way that they show BL (boys love) and also portray the uke with the "cute" type of personality. In both animes there is a specific scene that happens, which the ukes are both shocked by due to the semes' action (it will make your BL fangirl heart go wild~!). Anyways, Junjou Romantica is highly recommended to watch (if not already seen) if you are currently enjoying Love Stage!! because they both possess elements of romance and comedy that relate.
Both are very good Shonen Ai series that focus more on plot than sexualization of characters. People who don't like Yaoi or Shounen Ai may enjoy both Animes as they aren't too explicit, and just as enjoyable as any good romance series. Honestly, if this was not Shounen Ai, and the couples in each series where a girl and a boy. I would enjoy each series just the same! :3
Main characters are both naive college students, and can become very likeable as you watch each series. Both series also have supporting characters with their own relationships. This makes the series pacing more enjoyable as the focus isn't constantly on the main character and love interest.
Animation quality is also very good for both, and opening and ending songs are very catchy. Cute animal mascots are also used in both.
Both also involve the characters working in a specific industry (Literature for Junjou Romantica, and Enterainment for Love Stage!!) and that industry being a substantial part of each plot.
Both Animes are pretty short, but those who enjoyed the Anime can follow the stories further in the mangas, as they are both quite long and still ongoing (as of January, 2015)
Shounen Ai storys about a cute, innocent boy and a more adult counterpart, both contain a strong implementation of family bounds and involve comedy and a tiny bit of drama. While Love Stage!! plays up the comedy part more, Super Lovers goes more for drama. Also, the artstyle is quite similar.
The main similarity is obviously that both series are yaoi/shounen ai. Love Stage!! is more towards the comedy side and Super Lovers is more focus on the dramatic/trauma type but it’s still a pretty funny anime. They both have some sort of brother complex and the main character, Izumi from Love Stage!! and Ren from Super Lovers, that doesn’t know what to do towards the person that loves them because they are guys. Altogether both of them are amazing especially for a fujoshi and a fudanshi.
The main character has other dreams besides acting. He/she does not think about pursuing the entertainment industry until he/she is influenced by someone. In Love Stage!!, it's Izumi's parents. In Skip Beat!, it's Kyoko's ex-boyfriend. Both characters experience drawbacks and gradually get better as an actor. They have a popular actor as a love interest, who also plays a part in their past somehow. Love Stage! reveals the romantic history in full, while Skip Beat! doesn't elaborate and leaves a cliffhanger.
Well, in Skip Beat! and Love Stage!!, both of the main characters are involved with show biz somehow. At the beginning both of the main characters (Ren and Kyoko, then it's Izumi and Ryouma) don't really like each other but the relationship grows. One of the main differences is that 1. this is Yaoi 2. Izumi doesn't want to be in show biz but ends up in it, while Kyoko wanted to go in (although it was just to get revenge). If you enjoyed Skip Beat and you don't mind Yaoi, then you should definitely watch Love Stage!!
Both main characters are cute and 'uke' (in many meanings of the word) boys. They both fall in love with actors. In Papa to Kiss in the Dark there are incestuous themes, though, be aware. Love Stage has a lighter atmosphere and more episodes.
Both have cutesy/comedic shounen ai but is still somewhat serious and has plot. Love Stage!! has more comedy and is a little more explicit but the essence of the shows are still the same. Both have around 12ish episodes with a satisfying ending.
For starters both MC cross dress though while Izumi is a guy Haruhi is a girl.
Rei and Kyouya have the same characters and so do Tamaki and Shougo.
They are both comedies and both have to do with the lives of the rich in a way since in Ouran they deal with kids if millionaires in Love Stage the main character is a son of a show business family.
But yeah they both are romcoms that will put a smile on your face.
Going off the hinted at romance in No. 6 I believe these two anime are similar, Izumi reminds me a lot of Shion and the relationship grows in a similar way. If you loved the ship in No. 6, Love Stage is for you.
Both anime have a very similar humor and general feel to them. They are both romance anime with a strong emphasis on humor. They both have characters who are, or want to be shoujo mangakas. The characters are quite different in Love Stage and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki Kun but both anime have very good characters that go really well together, and both anime have a central couple with a variety of secondary characters. Both are very good anime and if you like one you will almost certainly like the other.
First we have a cute male MC, been forced to use women clothes (diferents amounts of time, but you got the idea) also very funny, ofcourse, its posible that the genders might be a little far way, but should give it a try.
I think these two anime have the same feel to them, I thought maybe that it might have been done by the same studio or producers but I've found no connection except for the fact that both of the manga authors make BL manga.
Both center around romance and boy love in particular, although with Watashi ga Motete Dousunda the main love story is a straight one. And in Love Stage!! the main pair get together pretty quick in comparison to the fact that Watashi ga Motete Dousunda is a harem and has no main couple.
Other similarities between the shows is that both main characters are otaku who love a certain anime character and that there is a (very) small element of cross dressing in both. Some characters have similar character designs and personality traits as well.
But if you like romance and BL both shows are probably going to be a fun watch, as you can watch a really endearing, fun and pretty hot gay relationship in Love Stage!! and relate to what Kae-chan feels in Watashi ga Motete Dousunda as well as see some really nice fan service moments that feel like a part of the story since its portrayed like fan service for the fujoshi characters not just the viewers. read more
Izumi was similar to Nagisa, they're both moe-like, innocent and bottom, Ryouma was similar to shizuma, both are really tall, gorgeous and top, but Nagisa and Shizuma are the shoujo ai version of them.
Both shows have protagonists who are inside the manga and anime world. Even if they are a boy and a girl, they share daily problems. People want them to become 'normal' persons but both only want to stay in their worlds and don't leave anime.
Both protagonists read BL manga.
-Main characters were actors at young ages
-similar main character personalities
-Comedy and romance
-Caring 'rei's that acts similar to a mother figure but double's as an agent (also similar pasts)
- Both main characters 'run away' from home
In both anime there's confusion about the gender of the main character: Izumi (Love Stage) is confused for a girl, while Hotaru (Aoharu x Kikanjuu) is confused for a boy
Furthermore, the design of the main characters is quite similar (they look quite alike)
keep in mind that Love Stage is a shounnen-ai and Aoharu not
Both involve same gender couples, and aren't very serious most of the time. The protagonist's older sibling affects the plot; though the biggest difference is Love Stage!! is BL and Sakura Trick is yuri, though if you like both yuri and yaoi and enjoyed one, you'll probably like the other.
Both have a really cute uke. The plots are different, but GH is set in a highschool, so they are around the same age. GH has very subtle themes and is good for someone starting out. It's light and fluffy.
