This is my 200th post on this blog, and what better way is there to celebrate it than writing about the rapiest anime of the season? Huh, whatever.
So, Love Stage: If you want something different in your BL anime, look elsewhere, because Love Stage has everything you probably hate – no, really – strange proportions, God ugly lips (I’ll never ever understand this trait), nandeeeeeeee~! uke with the body of a child and an angry borderline-obsessive seme, sex scenes where one must always be crying because it’s not sexy unless it’s forced, apparently, all wrapped up in a cutesy paper and a pretty bow to make it seem perfectly ah-OK.
Well fuck it, because I hate myself for loving this.
I have read the manga before and I can guarantee that everything after this um, awkward assault scene is a lot more genuine, cute and simply hilarious: Really, if you like BL, you will probably like Love Stage even though the weirdass stylization might take some time to get used to.
Whatever man, I’ll finish this show, it’s pretty great. And besides, I don’t want to ruin my triple-gay (Bakumatsu, this and Free!) Wednesdays, right?
