Sentai originally released Love Stage! on subtitled-only home video on June 14, 2016. The series originally aired in the Summer 2014 broadcast season.
Kenichi Kasai (Sweet Blue Flowers, Nodame Cantabile) directed the project at J.C. Staff, while Yoko Ito (Amanchu!, MARGINAL #4 the Animation) provided character designs. Michiko Yokote (Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!, Squid Girl) was in charge of series composition for the title.
Sentai describes Love Stage! as:
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 across the LOVE STAGE!!
