Read on BLなう!

In keeping with our policy of not scanlating licensed material, we’ll be doing detailed summaries of future LS!! manga chapters instead of scanlations. There’s no reason you guys should have to wait 2-3 years to see what happens next just because a company licensed the manga, and without ongoing updates like this, your interest in the series is likely to wane, meaning you won’t be interested in picking up those volumes! So we’re doing this as a service to keep interest alive while balancing our desire to encourage people who can buy the manga to do so. We’ll be giving super detailed summaries, complete with lots of images (all the best ones, so you’re not missing any big gems ;)), so if for whatever reason you won’t be able to purchase this when it’s officially available in English, you’ll still be just as informed as everyone else!

There was NO Back Stage!! manga installment this month, unfortunately, due to the authors’ busy schedules getting out this chapter and generating material for the anime DVDs and tankoubon volumes, but Eiki-sensei assures as a new chapter will be out in the next issue (end of January), so apologies for no new scanlated material for a bit! We’ll be getting back on schedule with novel translations soon, though, so hopefully that will make the wait a little easier to bear ^^

For now, go see what Izumi, Ryouma, Shougo, and Rei are up to!



  1. hey fencer! the first link you provided is not working, something about a wrong gateway. The ones at the bottom work fine though! Thanks so much again heehee. <3

  2. Thanks for the summary. I greatly appreciate it.

  3. Thank you!:)

  4. Thank you!! haha I had forgotten (briefly) that you were doing summaries instead of full scanlations so thank you for the reminder explanation. And thank you for doing the summaries! I really really appreciate it, and I really appreciate how you include key, HQ panels too. This is a perfect compromise, letting us still know what happens and get a feel for the mood/retain memory of the art and how much we love it, without it being fully scanlated and going against the company’s interest.

    • Thanks for understanding! It hurts not being able to provide our usual top-quality scanlations and translations, but hopefully this compromise will work for most people. We don’t want anyone missing out on the great hilarity and are happy to answer any questions anyone has about the content, too.

  5. Kyaaaaa!!!!!!!! Oh my god, teary-eyed Rei was so f’ing sexy, omg they are too cute, hugging like that… Oh my god, thank you for the summary, I thoroughly enjoyed it <3 can't wait for the volumes to start churning out next year!!! Thank you thank you!

  23. thank you so much its great!!

  24. Thank you very much!

  25. Thank you so much for the summary!!

    Your explanation is spot on. I’ve lost count of how many series I have lost interest in as soon as it was licensed and no longer scanlated largely due to the time gap between the official english release of the book to where the scanlation stopped at. Emotional connection can only run hot for so many days/weeks/months/years before it diddle down to nothing and moved onto something others.

    Also, can I trust that the story will be fully translated. I hate it when I start collecting the license book and the publisher stop publishing the rest of the volumes due to reasons or others. I really dislike incomplete collection. Really really dislike it the most especially if the series run for more than 5+ volumes. While I’m happy it get picked up and am willing to spend the money to buy it when it comes out, but I’m always skeptical because I’m a collector too. So, I’ll be watching Sublime very closely.

  26. thank you for the summary~~~~~ im so happy! i miss them so much~~~
