I almost cried, my eyes teared up at that ending. "I love you".

There needs to be more yaoi anime like this, I'm tired of the only yaoi/shounen-ai anime out there being Junjou Romantica and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi. Not to count Gravitation which is really amateur and shitty.

Yes there's tons of yaoi/shounen-ai manga but I want to see more animated ones. There is no harm and Love Stage was a masterpiece.

It was a good run. ;___;

Well you have about 2 full pages of yaoi and 3 full pages of shounen-ai on mal to choose from but I agree with you about making some more.

It's kind of funny there's still people whining about it being gay. It's not like this is the 10th episode of a yaoi anime or anything........

It had some funny moments, but overall nothing really memorable or noteworthy. Better than your standard yaoi anime, but that's a very low bar to begin with, so it's not exactly much praise.

6/10

When I was about to start watching Love Stage! I wasnt sure just how much I was going to like it this is coming from someone who really enjoys the story and everything that comes with Junjou Romantica from the moment i found out Junjou Romantica was announced I loved it but when Love Stage! was announced n had a set date i wasnt all that sure just how much i was going to like it...

Well I finally got around to watching episode 1 then by the time i was done with episode 1 i wanted to watch episode 2 so i did by the end of each episode i couldnt stop watching it n just few hours later i was done with it n i was sad that it was done I loved this anime n if a season 2 cam out i would so watch them many times n i would even re-watch season 1 just like i did with Junjou Romantica n then after i was done watching season 2 i re-watched them all without having to wait so I have a feeling that Love Stage! would be the same thing.

Overall my score will be n forevermore a 10 I would rate it higher but MAL only goes up to 10 so yeah.

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.
(and I mean truly enlightened and not just speaking out of your ass enlightened)


Of course you are right. It isn't Yaoi or more correctly Boy's Love. And I like the term Yaoi better than BL, it has a ring to it. Yaoi is not incorrect it is just a bit out of date. But love stage the anime is Shouen Ai. I don't consider myself enlightened, but you seemed so stressed.


Yaoi is BL.
Shounen Ai is also BL.
Yaoi, however, is different from Shounen Ai.

Although both are classified as Boy's Love, yaoi is more explicit. It shows sex scenes, etc. So yaoi is like the malexmale version of hentai.

Shounen ai on the other hand is basically something on the softer or "fluffier" level of boy's love... like a shoujo manga relationship except with a malexmale pair.

@mayukachan have you read this

snip snip

reading an article about the psychological side of female's needs for rape does not change how i feel about said anime
nor does it change my morals

either way, the shows i mentioned aren't well written even if you took the non-consensual out.

in the end, it doesn't change that sekaiichi and junjou had unconsensual which is equal to rape

IKR?! I've read a lot of yaoi/shounen ai mangas that have really great stories in them but you hardly find animes of those genres.

I hope the success of Love Stage would increase the chances for more BL animes to be made though. I understand anime producers are wary about making BL mangas into anime because it isn't generally/easily received by everyone... but c'mon. :c If they're made this well, pretty sure a lot of people will still appreciate it! >_<

show is awesome but could do without semi-sex scene this ep....

i twisted and turned + cringed during the whole thing and hope they don't show the humping motion (which they didn't)

def. the perfect anime to introduce someone to yaoi... the series kind of ease the viewer into more and more intense MxM romance

this will probably be one (if not the only one) BL/shounen-ai/yaoi/w/e anime with semi-subtle gay sex scene I managed to finish and enjoyed.

8/10

PS. not a single boner was achieved during while watching this anime.. fukyea.jpg

Ahhhh...sooo, this was my first Yaoi series and I enjoyed it. I must say, I really did like it! I had no idea it was only 10 episodes though....D; My reaction was "OmGoodness!? It's done!? Whaa?!"

& Izumi was so so so so cute as a girl...haha poor guy. Anyway, I did enjoy! It was pretty good :D, I'd deff watch if there will soon be a season 2!

That was good. I was tempted into giving an 8/10 because it's frustrating how hetero anime can't even pull a 7/10 romance but that isn't fair.

This anime gets a 7/10

OK, why did I like this so much? I'm a straight guy without any prior yaoi/shounen-ai experience, and yet I loved this. Odd. But yeah, 7.5/10

I feel like I kind of jumped on this bandwagon late! Why can't there be more? D: 10 episodes just isnt enough

Oh Izumi made the first move! >.< I fangirled through the second half!

Glad to see them get together!

Now onto the manga because I need more of this!!

Well it looks like Izumi was sorely mistaken about his first time not hurting. That really escalated but it reached the all's well that end's well. Wrapping it up with a simple but sweet "I love you." I really liked that moment between Izumi's parents as well, just a heartwarming moment of two parents who were truly looking out for their son's well being.

I have to say Love Stage threw me completely off guard. The first episode took me by storm and kept me glued to the hilarity and sugary, feel good romance that ensued between two formerly straight guys. I like how they didn't make it a point that they needed to reexamine their sexual orientation, but rather that they loved each other regardless of gender. Another strong point of this show is how it mostly stayed lighthearted but still delivered drama without being too heavy handed about it. I think I was either smiling or laughing 90% of the time, especially when those two stuffed animals would randomly intervene in the background. Oh and Lala Lulu. Who can forget about her?

9/10, I might have bumped it up to a 10 just because it was easy to go gay for Izumi cross dressing. I rarely watch shounen ai but this, Sekai Ichi, and Junjou have all left solid impressions on me. It definitely makes me want to continue picking up BL from time to time.

The ending, that last bit, anyone saw the scene of shougo and rei love scene of that ova?
I mean there was some hint in perhaps episode 10? Rei kinda say meet him at somewhere and shougo got very excited? Not so sure.

But in the ova, it kinda reveals that Rei is the uke O_O? Maybe? Not so sure. I may be wrong in this. But pewpewpew, i wish there was a side ova for rei and sougo xD, it will be fun~~

whhaaat it's over?

The glasses guy is the sane guy of this series XD I thought he'd be the one complicating things but I guess the role is not for him.

Well, I'm hoping for season 2 or spin off or whatever.

Wow! My first shounen ai anime. I thought it was yaoi at first but reading the comments of this forum I found out that there's a difference to yaoi and shounen ai.
Just wow... I loved it so much! I never knew I could be into boy x boy action that much! I love it! Will go watch the OVA asap and I am seriously thinking about reading the manga now!!

Omg Rei in the end .o. didn't expect that. But it was soo cute :3
This episode was the sweetest ever... I can't even comment on it more. It was so perfect. Definitely the best anime to introduce people to shounen ai! At least it seems so :D
Worthy of a rewatch for sure!!! I'm excited for the Ova x3

Really good anime and sweet characters. I'd like to see season 2

Wait a minute, is Rei and Shougo actually a thing? This would be a disaster. Rei is my favorite character while Shougo is my LEAST favorite so NO! JUST NO! I don't like Shougo so this pairing gets my disapproval.

Anyway, it was an enjoyable watch. I think the light-hearted atmosphere is what made this series for me. And if there is one thing I thought they done right, it would be having Izumi FIGHT BACK! Finally someone who at least fight when they are cornered because realistic speaking, the chances of someone rescuing you is low so I hate it when anime make guys/mostly girls waiting for someone to help them out in situations like this.

They better make more anime for this. I dont care if its about izumi after he goes into show buisness or about the implied connection between rei and shougo(theres a manga about them so they can totally adapt that into an anime) I need there to be more to this story. Im sure this is the opinion of most of the fans who watched this anime. I just live thiss one so much I seen it three times.two of those times were between two and seven in the morning and I just watched it today. Its sad its only 10 eps when most are 12 eps while some even have 13 in a season

This must be how girls feel when they watch normal Harem anime.

Plain girl surrounded by good looking guys who are infatuated by them for no reason. I just keep asking myself Whhyyyyyy!?
So many moments are just realistic behavior on the "hot guy's" part.

Thinking back it was the exact same case for our harem anime. Plain guy surrounded by hot girls who are in love with him for no reason. A lot of the hot girls' behaviors were probably unrealistic.
But I couldn't tell 'cause you'd need a life with interaction with real women for that.

Once I accepted it as a shoujo series, it was Surprisingly entertaining.
