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?

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.

Story (7): The story was pretty cute. I would rate is a bit higher but there was a whole volume dedicated to a troupe that I highly dislike so that it a personal issue. Otherwise I'd say the plot was somewhat unique for a bl and the love was very genuine and adorable!
Art (10): I may be biased on this one. I outright love Zaou's art. It is so crisp and beautiful. When I see a manga by Zaou I can easily identify it, which definitely show talent!
Character (7): I thought the characters were all very cute but at the same time the personalities caused 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
