I enjoyed episode 10, it's a shame it's the last one but I didn't think it was unsatisfying. It did feel slightly rushed towards the end but I think it was worth it to cover what they did. It may also have felt rushed because it was fun and went by so fast.

I was quite impressed with Izumi managing to sort out his problems by himself. I think one of the strengths of the show is that it mostly lets the characters dictate what happens and doesn't feel like it's forcing them to follow particular story beats.

I don't know how the story goes in the manga but I'm glad that:

Ryouma was kind of cute with his worrying, he was the only one that got a mascot joke too (mascots can be annoying but Love Stage handled them pretty well I felt). The fainting elephant was a highlight too (it was odd to have comedy right in the middle of the more extreme drama but it worked surprisingly well).

Ryouma was probably my favourite character because he was kind of complex but still overall a decent guy. I liked that he had flaws but tried to be aware of them and tackle them (even if he wasn't always as successful as he'd have liked). Also, he had some very good jokes (I quite liked the issue he had with the posts on set). Rei was pretty good too though, a good father figure type for Izumi and he was often impressive in dealing with a variety of tough situations (and he had some great jokes too).

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the show. The romance was satisfying and realistic and the comedy was pretty consistently funny. I think the real strength of the show is the characters, they're great as extremes for comedy but they also manage to feel somehow realistic and it's easy to sympathise with and support them. I haven't watched any other BL shows so I don't know how well Love Stage works as a BL show but it's definitely a good romantic comedy even if you don't have an interest in the BL aspects.

I love the show, but before I watched I saw many gifs and pictures of tumblr and I literally thought it was a girl. When I came around to watching it, I was really shocked to find out he's a boy. o.O Although, I am excited for newer episodes in the future.

How do you make petitions?? someone should make a petition for a second season! I don't have tumblr, instagram or any of those sites to gather a huge crowd to sign the petition...in the end I liked this anime a lot even though I was complaining about the girly look of the main character at first....but now I can see he is a great character^^


I have watched ALL yaoi animes and this one has become one of my favorites, I even ended up liking it more than Gravitation which is the favorite BL anime for most yaoi fans.

Great to see that Sentai picked this show up. It's definitely one of this season's pleasant surprises.

I am still new to anime but I don't understand what it means for viz to license love stag. Does that mean a second season is coming out or manga's will be out sooner. What does this all mean?

Viz just licensed the manga for US distribution, which means they got approval to release the manga for the fans in the US. When something is licensed, it just means that that company is given rights to distribute the series in their region. It has no impact on sequels or quicker releases in Japan.
