Sorry for the wait! We’re a chapter behind now and are getting caught up. Next weekend, we’ll upload the summary for Chapter 32 and be all caught up!

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!

ETA: LOVE STAGE!! WILL BE ENDING WITH CHAPTER 33. Yup, the chapter after next is the last one, out late July 2016. Thanks for sticking with us as we wrapped up this series! We’re not sure yet what this means for the authors–if they’ll go back to Back Stage!! and finally give it a proper run, or if they’ll do a Saotome/Kuroi spin-off, or if they’ll start something completely new. I’m sure we’ll hear clear details soon, though! If Back Stage!! is continued, we’ll of course go back to scanlating it until it’s licensed. The same will hold true for anything else, if we think it sounds interesting :)

Note that next issue, along with a new chapter, will be included an original drama CD featuring Izumi, Ryouma, and Kisaragi. If the content is NEW, we’ll translate it; if it’s manga material, we won’t. We’ll only be sharing it if we are translating it.

Volume 6 of this popular BL series will be released October 1 and come with an hour-long drama CD covering acts 17-26, which represent the drama filming + hypnosis arc and will feature Koyasu Takehito as super-director Kisaragi.

If you’d like to own this CD, then grab a preorder right now and we’ll make every effort to secure you one! (if for whatever reason we can’t order a copy, you’ll be refunded) This is a LIMITED EDITION made-to-order version, so you will likely NOT be able to buy this later if you don’t order it before the deadline (through some venue, even if not through Shoptember).

The price is $30 without shipping (shipping will depend on your country; dump it in your cart and proceed to checkout to see what your shipping will be!).

DEADLINE TO MAKE A PURCHASE IS JULY 25. After that, I’ll be submitting the order and will NOT purchase for anyone else!

Preorder today!

“Will you be translating this CD?” – Probably not, since it will almost certainly be almost word-for-word the same as the manga. You can read along with our previous scanlations/summaries though!
