Izumi Sena was born to one of the most well known showbiz families in Japan—but while the world waits for his debut as a new star, Izumi just wants to become a distinguished manga artist and fulfill his otaku dreams! Despite being surrounded by stardom his whole life, a traumatizing experience at a commercial shoot 10 years ago forced him into emotional recluse and eventually into the arms of his favorite fictional character, Magical Girl LalaLulu.

However, it turns out that Izumi is not in the clear yet. Considering that he is far from becoming a manga artist of any sort, he joins a shooting for the sequel of that dreaded commercial from his past. What's more, his co-star from the past, who is also invited to reprise his role, is none other than the famous actor Ryouma Ichijou. Izumi does not fancy wearing a dress again—but Ryouma is eager to see the beautiful "girl" who captured his heart 10 years ago. How will this fateful reunion turn out?

The anime itself is interesting but the manga is where it really shines

It is the best bl oy yaoi iv ever read ive had to re read the manga once i was finished
i highly suggest anyone who is interested to read the manga it is the best ive seen in my entire life
and i loved it,

The story was very unique with lots of development
i liked the art style of the characters it really did fit their personalitys
it was probably the most realistic one ive ever seen reaction wise they mostly reacted to situations as any other person would
i really believe others will also enjoy it.

Mixed Feelings
Yeah... Love Stage!! is okay, and the only way I was able to enjoy it was to consider this as a really bad parody drama. Like, the story is actually interesting, but LS!! has many problematic tropes that unfortunately many BL stories have, and it sucks cause the plot actually has potential.

The characters are stereotypes, not really growing throughout the story, and many of the problematic things they do are laughed off-- this is labeled as comedy, but serious topics shouldn't be just laughed and brushed off.

Art is subjective, so it's not really ''bad'', I just personally don't like it.

I did kinda ...

I have very mixed feelings about this manga. I do enjoy some aspects of the manga. There are a lot of cute and funny moments. I like the main characters (they are a cute couple) and I really like one of the side characters (Rei). The art is also pretty nice. However, the main issue I had with this manga is the amount of sexual assault and weird/uncomfortable scenes. Unfortunately, sexual assault is in quite a lot of yaoi and is a common trope. There are a lot of these moments in this manga. Some of these scenes are even played off as sweet ...
