From September Scanlations:

With a father who's a singer, a mother who's a movie star, and an older brother, Shougo, who's the lead vocalist for the super-popular band The Crusherz, Sena Izumi, an otaku college student is the only dull one born into this super famous and talented family. He loves Magical Girl LalaLulu and is working hard to become a mangaka, but one day he winds up appearing in a TV commercial he just can't turn down. There, he's reunited with Ichijou Ryouma, the super-popular young actor he costarred with on a project ten years prior.

To me love stage is one of those mangas you dont see often, in my opinon the plot, characters (well most), and art is unique. I love the manga and crave for new updates. both mangaka did great with it and they should get praised. o0o0 and i love the main characters they really do say "love is blind" lol

Give it up for Ryouma for trying his hardest to get Izumi to like him back, because that kid is d-e-n-s-e.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So in chapter ten, when Ryouma kisses him, and Izumi blushes, I was like, finally.
But the characters are well-developed and the plot isn't bad either, a twist on the actors/showbiz concept. The art is beautiful as always.

I love this manga (and not just because it's yaoi)! I love it because it has an actual plot line and is very sweet and funny ^^ The artwork is also very good (it takes talent to draw badly when you are used to drawing well lol) I recommend this very highly!

The art is a 7, but I give the story a 10 and so are the characters. This was a refreshing change from the usual yaoi I came across, since Ryouma not only say he cares about Izuma's feelings towards him but shows it by not engaging in emotionless sex, despite Izuma's supposedly being "alright" with it. It also has some really funny moments. The Izuma and Ryouma couch scene was priceless. I almost feel out of my chair when Shougo cut in like he did. Even Re is likable character. Izuma's parents are the only characters I find really fustrating since they seem to be only interested in their own career advancement than having having concern for their son, who, by the way, makes a awesome looking chick.

Chapter 2 page 15 = one of the funniest moments I've ever read.

Now, seriously. I had a lot of fun reading this. Of course, the art is great, the characters are funny; but it's also quite original I think. The plot first made me think it was quite classic yaoi, but it turned out...differently somehow. Both main characters are incredibly cute in their own way, and you get the bonus of a few hotter scenes smile

I'm really curious to see where it goes!

Don't let the showbiz subplot put you off from reading this

This manga is laugh-out-loud hilarious! We've well-rounded characters, and we're highlighted with their good and not-so-good sides without being apologetic about it. It was also refreshing to see the brothers actually take after their parents not just in looks, but personalities as well.

There's also a subtle play of the power dynamics between the uke and seme (much like its counterpart, Back Stage!!, but certainly more defined in that story) even with Izumi being as uke!cliche as you can get.

The art is catchy, the story grows on you. I like that the guy is an otaku, rich and does not have any of the 'poor me i got no money' vibe. This is the 'rich and famous' manga. It could be a parody of Skip Beat too, or the BL counterpart. So... I love it!

Honestly, the fact that Izumi looks so much like a girl really turned me off from this story. But I liked the summary, so I decided to read on and I did not regret. smile It is a refreshing yaoi manga for me. The main characters did not immediately jump into the sex and stuff like that. Izumi is absolutely funny and adorable. I actually like his character. smile Ryouma is more different than I thought too. I thought he would just be the cool actor type, but his personality is really funny x) I love his honesty, lol, and his burst of cries, LOL. It makes him look more lame, but more lovable. biggrin I'm actually glad that he's not the typical 'cool and calm' type. smile
Anyways, this story so far have made me laugh a lot. and I like it a lot for its freshness. I hope it continues to be that way. smile

The art is SUPER cute!!
The humor is awesome as well. The pairing is romantic--sort of like childhood love. And I generally like show biz mangas.
I'm really looking forward to the next chapter.

EDIT: It's shallow as hell--both the plot and the character. Imo, the only saving grace is the art.

Loveable characters and nice story. The art is also very pretty and even though Izumi
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
dressed up like a girl, he doesn't come across as too girly strangely enough

I'm not really a fan of manga with idols or actors because the characters usually have an air of being too cool to live and it isn't just that enjoyable to read. There is some of that in this, but it's done in a rather amusing way and the characters are charming and funny and don't come across as insufferable jerks. Ryouma is very endearing and kind of goofy despite having a cool reputation, as is Izumi's brother Shougo and the whole rest of the family. Izumi is interesting because he's not your normal pushover uke. I also love Rei a lot for his straight forward attitude (and enjoy his story with Shougo a lot in Back Stage!) Really lovely manga with great characters so far.
