THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Even those deliquents are drawn to him. He was able to escape by himself. lol @ otaku conversation. Oh, they are meeting that megane girl that bumped into that main guy in previous ep. His friend (Kimura-san) knew that he's a celebrity now! He's an assistant of the mangaka he likes! He was there when the idol guy requested, and he wasn't being jealous.

Going to the guy he loves means he's leaving the anime character. He went immediately for sex and brother is feeling bad omen!! He confessed after doing it because he forgot.

He's doing well in entertainment industry.

Waiting for OVA.

I'm inclined to say that this is some of the best the BL adaptation world has had to offer.
Not that there's much competition but i've been far from impressed with other bl that i've seen.
haven't watched Junjou Romantica yet but I may or may have not cried tears of blood everytime I stumble upon a screencap

This episode built up nicely once we got past the rapist thugs.
While I don't like everything that happened between Izumi and Ryouma in the past, they did have their moments.

Can I mention that Kuroi is an ace?
Laughed that they live in a world where glasses = total disguise but he's adorable giving his glasses to Izumi.


I'm actually kind of amazed they didn't censor anything with hot pink glittery clouds, though I supposed panning to random places works too. Consistent visuals were a treat.
Would watch a sequel or a spin-off or whatever.

Wut?! Rei and Shougo... What Rei said sounded like they were going to do the same as Ryoma and Izumi :x

EVERYONE, STOP MISTAKING yaoi with shounen ai, it's definitely not the same thing omfg!

Best shounen ai anime I've liked to watch so far.

Is it wrong to call all homosexual anime BL? Isn't that the preferred term these days anyway?
If anyone is enlightened about these things please do tell me.

It's not wrong but it has a great difference in their meanings. Yaoi includes sex scenes, it's like male homosexual hentai. Shounen ai is homosexual romance, without sexual intercourse, the sex scenes can be implied but they're not shown, like what happened in the end of "Love Stage!!".

But at the end they showed a short scene where Jin appears, so does that mean there is a bit more hope for a second season?

So this was my first Yaoi series if I remember correctly and I fucking loved it. Don't think Junjou Romantica can beat this.
My goal is to watch as much anime as possible. On my profile you will also find a list of seen cartoons & movies. Sometimes I release older anime or sub some things. If you have any questions, just ask!

I have to say I was very iffy about watching this anime because its BL based and I wasn't sure how much they would show.

The story was very romantic and I really enjoyed the story and romance of Love Stage! and hope to see a second season get announced.

One of the best animes this season!
So glad that I'm not a huge manga reader, because the manga readers WHINE WAY TOO MUCH and have to RUIN every adapted anime for the ANIME ONLY WATCHERS!

It's totally different, they think like it because they lack knowledge.

Shounen-ai is more fluffy and cute. Mainly focuses on the romantic, loving, emotional side of the relationship. Sometimes their relationship aren't even starting! To translate word shounen - young boy and ai - it means boy's love but there is a huge wall between yaoi and shounen-ai, at least there is age rating 13 so you can easily get.



Love Stage I was contempt from the plot and visual art. To tell the truth didn't like shougo's voice in anime, not for this character.
Anime is better in some moments than manga, for example Rei past was not include in manga as good as in that episode.
unfortunately as another shounen-ai anie it's finished early, maybe because of short chapters in manga. I don't know but last few minutes showed us new character and begining of the new arc in manga.
So I Can say that one OVA will not be enought to show it. :) So yes I hope it can have continuations.

Love Stage!! is so far ahead of any other BL anime out there, it's not even funny. The characters were likeable and funny, the animation was nice (which is quite rare for titles in this genre) and the story itself is good as well. As an adaptation it worked really well too. Lots of scenes that weren't in the manga, but that added nicely to the overall feel and story.
It'll probably be a while before they make a second season, as there isn't much material to adapt. But I hope this will lead to some more BL manga getting adapted.

Glad the Izumi was able to escape by himself, it really turned dangerous in that way :O
Fully realizing his love after Kuroi told Izumi how Ryouma had to grovel a lot for the signature.
Running to Ryouma's home after that and they did it!
It was sweet how they ended with them fully konwing that it is mutual ^^

I thought that the series would be something like those crappy Junjo Romantica and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi but Love Stage far exceeded my expectations.

I can't remember the last time I was this satisfied with the last episode of an anime. I really enjoyed how the relationship between Izumi and Ryouma developed and it was very well done considering the short length of the anime.

I loved the sex scene. Especially the moment when they showed Ryouma's sofa. So classy.

After the rape scene the episode turned out nice. My favourite moment was when one of Izumi's otaku friends introduced his almost-girlfriend to other one :D Overally it was good adaption. Nice art and good animation, story was nicely packed in those 10 episodes. I read manga somewhere to this point and I heard that it gets worse after, so I guess it's good they ended here and "closed" it more or less. 7/10 from me, let's hope it will break the mold for other BL stuff other then those from Nakamura.

This was my first BL anime. Nothing really stood out to me in particular because I am male and do not enjoy BL moments.

The characters were indeed likeable and not your typical stereotypes, albeit sharing some traits. Shougo is the one that annoyed me the most since he is your average brocon. Izumi received some minor character developement, nothing too special but it was there.

The pacing is the biggest flaw of the anime IMO. It started out way too slow and then increased marginally near the end. It felt very unnatural. I'm happy that Izumi knows what he wants and actually has some resolve, which is why the pacing ruined that aspect for me.

5/10 Over all for doing what its intended for and not being your typical flashy trainwreck.
Average>Trainwreck.
Looking forward to the OVA and future anime material.

Satisfying ending.

But i wish that Izumi actually was good at drawing manga and that he would venture into the manga industry instead of the entertainment industry.
I mean he was the outcast in the family, and it would be more interesting if he continued to stay that way and to see all the differences between him and the rest of the family.

But other then that, a really cute show overall :3

this was such a lovely anime. loved the characters. happy they at least implied the Shougo/Rei. Izumi is just too cute and Ryouma is very likable. Kuroi is a good friend (and kind of hot without his glasses too)
hoping for a second season. I got hope when they showed the pervy director in the end.
it was a fun ride~

IzumixRyouma forever! Well I've already read the manga up to date and I am waiting on new releases now. I love this manga and the story overall.
I wish there were more episodes to come. This last episode just felt so short. and they left out the sex scene like I knew they would. Go read the manga for that juiciness!

Izumi is quite ripped for an otaku, pft

Awesome anime, though. Totally hoping for a second season. Wish they would have flesh out Rei and Shougo's relationship a bit more or just completely left it out, though. Sort of awkward how they just... tossed that there.

Heck yes for no clouds or bright pink censors!

Also heck yes for Izumi kicking the crap (balls) out of those guys himself and not needing saved like a shriveling uke XD

ive been reading and loving its manga since it's got scanlated so i already like the base material but im not very happy with the way the handled its anime. this anime had some good fillers like his otaku friends' talk and we get to know a lot more about the side characters etc BUT it had more bad fillers than good ones. lalalulu scenes were too childish, it got too slow paced, weird narrations etc.
that cloud censor was horrible too. im glad they got rid of it for the last episode.
7/10

no, no, no, no.
you are mistaken. the difference is not great at all. yaoi is not "homo" hentai. love stage's manga IS yaoi. have you ever seen hentai manga with that kind of plot? not much, right?
the only difference between yaoi and shounen ai is explicit sex scenes. not romance nor plot or fluffyness or anything. btw both are called BL nowadays.
actually some yaoi is NOT even more explicit than your average so-called ecchi manga. tho sure, there are hentai like yaoi but the magazines that they are serializated in are different. it's obvious when a magazine is more on the porn side.

It was such an amusing anime! So sad it only has 10 eps... D:

I'm wondering who the guy with black hair was at the end, you didn't get to see his face, only smiling when he saw the Nikkon commercial of Izumi...

Wanted to see Rei x Shougo lovely moments and I'm secretly hoping for Kuroi-kun (friend of Izumi who gave his glasses to him) with the mangaka if there will be a second season or something! Why else would they show the mangaka's face and make it even handsome! haha
+Kuroi-kun also has a nice face :B

Anyone else noticed, if you know FREE! anime as well that the voice of Izumi is the same as Nagisa in FREE! and voice of Rei the same as.. Rei from FREE! XD
Oh and Izumi's mom is named Nagisa.. lol

Damn, this show was too short. Definitely the best BL anime out there. It beats Sekaiichi/Junjou by a long shot because this couple isn't just one sided, but mutual. I usually watch BL for the excitement, but this one was so adorable instead of being "hot". Gonna start the manga sometime!

I'll leave my score at a 7/10 but if it went longer, I would have scored it higher.

Also I have to point out the seme (Ryoma) is actually really cute and handsome compared to Sekaiichi/Junjou's semes who are just emo and too forceful imo

Needs a sequel. I'm ready for the OVA. Now...Where is Honto Yajuu's adaption? :P

OMG! THAT KISS! So cute >.< Can't believe that Izumi started it first.

Lol Izumi doing the Pocky commercial XD

Too bad this anime ended with only 10 episodes. It was frickin adorable <3 Hope there will be a season 2 :3

10/10 Full marks for cuteness lol
