About Love Stage!! Blu-ray

Love Stage!! contains episodes 1-10 of the anime plus the OVA directed by Kenchi Kasai with an all new English Dub.

As a child actor, Izumi Sena was following the rest of his family into the entertainment business until he quit after a humiliating incident while shooting a certain commercial. Now, ten years later, Izumi's trying to juggle college and becoming a manga author, but nothing seems to be working out for him. Until he's asked to reprise his part in that infamous commercial opposite one of Japan's most popular up-and-coming actors! Which wouldn't be so bad… except for the fact that Izumi was dressed as young girl in the ad, and everyone, including his infatuated potential co-star Ryoma Ichijo, still thinks that he's a she! Is Izumi going to have to kiss a guy and will he like it? And what will Ryoma think when the girl of his dreams turns out to be a guy in jeans? Get ready for a tale of crossed stars and shifting alignments as a completely unexpected drama unfolds in prime time!

Special Features: OVA Commentary with David Wald and Greg Cote, Promo Spots, Japanese Promos, Character Bumpers, Japanese Disc Promos, Clean Opening Animation, and Clean Closing Animation

A must buy for Yaoi / BL fans <3

by -

The voice acting on this dub is really well done. The story is fun and engaging but not afraid to be silly at times. It's visually appealing honestly I can't find a any fault with this Blu-ray. :-) 10 / 10 would buy again

Perfect Dub for Fujoshi and Fudanshi

by -

I loved this anime so much, and when I found out about the dub, I knew I had to get it as soon as I could!

The dub exceeded my expectations. The voice actors did a great job on portraying the characters and did not disappoint. I heard this was a passion project by the director, and it shows. My favorite part was definitely Greg Ayres as Izumi. He was just... so adorable. Overall, the dub rekindled my love for this anime, and I've been fangirling over it ever since.

10/10 would highly recommend for both BL fans and dub fans.

Great anime with amazing voice actors

I am very happy to have this as part of my collection. I've only seen the English subtitles but listening to the English Dubbed made the anime 100 times better! The anime it self was really good! The animation, voice acting and story plot where amazing! It's a great anime and I'll be watching it a thousand times more. I definitely recommend this anime to any one who loves comedy, romance, drama, cuteness and Yaoi ^_~

Excellent rom-com; characters feel genuine

by -

Love Stage!! is my first official foray into BL anime, and I loved every second of it. This anime is just an all-around solid rom-com. It's a traditional boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl story... except then the girl turns out to be a dude, and the original boy has to adjust his expectations accordingly. The rest of it revolves around how the two main characters wrestle with their questions of sexual identity and how they (eventually) learn how to communicate with one another.

The characters are extremely likable (with the exception of one problematic scene, that was ultimately resolved post-haste), and their actions feel caring and genuine. Even the more minor characters were given plenty of time to shine, and there were quite a few backstory surprises.

For those who may be squeamish about the BL aspect, don't be. Any romanticism between the leads is tasteful, and not over-the-top. I'm a fairly prudish cishet male, and I had no problem with any of it.

5 stars from me.

Refreshing!

by -

I binged the entire show in a couple of days. Almost every second of it is enjoyable. A particular favorite aspect of it for me is that it throws some tropes upside down. Without spoilers, I just want to say that the typical roles are not expressed in the typical way, which I thought was fantastic. It also handles and approached the concept of “male pretending to be female” (or vice versa) in a way that was enjoyable and didn’t seem as forced or silly as that topic sometimes comes across.
