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.

When I was reading the latest chapter I suddenly realized I was smiling the whole time. THAT'S the kind of manga it is - really funny, sweet and adorable. Definitely not something to take too seriously, but so, so enjoyable.

i agree with what others have said -- don't let the showbiz plot put you off on this one. also keep in mind, this is a COMEDY (a damn good one too, seriously made me lmao) and primarily for entertainment purposes (it's not one of those 'profound' yaoi titles that make you go deep into thought) so it's not meant to be taken too seriously. so love the characters and plot for what they are and just ENJOY IT!

the artwork is also really nice! as a fan of ZAOU Taishi , i can see her artwork as well as her comedic elements (her works are HILARIOUS!) IF you want a good laugh (this is literally a 'feel good' manga) definitely go for this one smile

Love this!
Ryouma is such an awesomely good guy! I expected this to go a totally different route than it did.
The main couple is super cute, even though I feel sort of bad for Ryouma because Izumi is so slow, but on the other hand, seeing Ryouma try again and again and put a real effort in here is so nice and refreshing, a total change from the many yaoi mangas where semes are real jerks to the ukes!
Ryouma really made it into my list of favorites semes because he's just amazing!
There's not enough semes out there who will say "no, I won't take your body just cause I can, I want your heart as well!" really.........
The only thing I could say that bugs me is that there's not enough out yet of the story! I can't wait to see them end up together, have Izumi be all in love with Ryouma finally!

Read this if you want an incredibly sweet seme, a cute otaku uke and a plot that's gonna make you smile and laugh!

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!
