Yes, Love Stage!! has been licensed. No, we will not continue scanlating it. Yes, we will be doing detailed summaries instead.

But when one door closes…another opens:

YES, Back Stage!! is being serialized as a manga, and YES we will be scanlating it. Read the full details in our tumblr announcement. The series will start running in the upcoming issue of Ciel, out Wednesday. We should have it up by the next weekend at the latest :)

ETA: Closed to further discussion; this was only an announcement and a chance for people to get excited about Back Stage!! but some seem to have used it as opportunity to whine that we aren’t risking legal action to bring them their free manga anymore. We’ve discussed our reasons several times before; try doing a little digging if you’re terribly curious about our reasoning.

Notes: This is the subtitled version of the Love Stage!! drama CD recently released. It contains two tracks; the first featuring a day at the beach for Izumi and Ryouma which is far from fun, and the second featuring a villa getaway that’s crashed when Izumi and Ryouma find out that there are already guests using it: Shougo and Rei :>

Notes: This is not the entire fanbook–only the parts we felt would be particularly interesting. We’ve only scanlated the character profiles and the new comics (both Back Stage!!), leaving out the authors’ notes and staff comments as well as the other comics which we have already previously scanlated. Enjoy!
