Love how they made Izumi's debut. Introduce him as the wedding girl. Mess with folks mind that a beautiful girl is actually a beautiful man. I thought this episode was a recap episode. Izumi's eyes were a combination of his mother's purple eyes and father's gold eyes. I just realized that.

@takashichea: Half of the episode certainly was recap which is a shame because there are only 10 episodes, but nonetheless it was fun. Loved the psycho-Rei scene. I've never noticed that about Izumi's eyes, good catch!

@whiskers:

Wait, there are only 10 episodes. Checked ANN, but they didn't have a episode count neither does Wikipedia. Loved Ryuma and Sogo's scene fighting over Izumi. I notice the eye color a bit late.

Loved the manager and how they finally got some backstory on him.

@takashichea: MAL says 10 episodes. Maybe there will be a sequel? I guess it depends on how far the manga keeps going.

Didn't expect Izumi to ask a question about BL love or sex between guys. I imagine anal sex between guys is more dangerous than sex between women.

Ryoma expresses jealously which is common if your beloved is a model or beautiful super star. You don't want to share her or him with folks. What am I saying?

Can't wait for the next episode? I spy love triangle!

Really? I must have missed something! Anyway, Izumi's hilarious as always. Aah, just one more episode left.

I can only guess it's like any other type of sex: very pleasurable if done properly, and if not... yikes!

So you're the possessive type, huh? Just kidding...

@whiskers:

This guy here. Well, I could be wrong. It is the last episode. They would do that. Plus, this guy seems to be friends with Izumi.

@takashichea: Yes, they're in the manga club together. When he first showed up, I actually thought he might turn out to be another love interest or should I say a suitor? Anyway, like you said it is the last episode, so nothing like that. I do wonder does he have a bigger role in the manga.  I might have to check it out, now that the show is ending.

@whiskers:

Good idea, I was curious about the manga and if they do that sparkly censorship thing.

@takashichea: Me too. I had to check that scene where Ryoma pinned down Izumi on the sofa before Shougo showed up, and nope, no sparkly bits ;-)

The show ended well for me. I still want to know what Shogo and Rei's relationship is. When Rei told Shogo to meet him tonight in a suggestive tone and if Shogo gets work done, my radar went beep.

Oh, I thought I had my implied sex scene example, but Izumi said the phrase, "Let's Do It." which violates one of my conditions for implied sex scene. It has to be argued both ways.

Very cute and enjoyable show. At the end of the penultimate episode I thought Izumi would be saved by his friend, but I'm glad that he managed to deal with the kidnappers all by himself. It was funny how suddenly obedient Shougo became when Rei invited him over. Of course I'd love to see their rendezvous, but that wouldn't happen in a PG-13 rated show. There is however a light novel that revolves around Rei and Shougo called Back Stage. I might check it out.

@whiskers:

Saw ANN posted the 2nd OVA trailer.

@takashichea: Thanks for the preview! I'm looking forward to it. I've started the manga, but I'm still far from the point where the show left of.

It's embarrassing to admit, but I'm pretty much out of the loop when it comes to these things, and I've just found out that Shougo's voice actor DAIGO is actually the brother of Love Stage's author, Eiki Eiki.

I can see where she got her inspiration for Shougo:

@whiskers:

I'm game. I'll read the manga as soon as I get HW done, and we could continue this discussion. No one would mind. It's just us.

I'm curious to see how it looks and such.

@takashichea:

Alrighty then, I'll save my comments for later regarding the manga. :)

@whiskers:

Awesome! Look forward to it. I wonder how much anime was holding back as I find out!
