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 :)

Again, there was NO Back Stage!! manga installment this month either, unfortunately, despite previous assurances there would be a new chapter in this issue, and we’re not sure whether or not to expect one in the May issue (out at the end of March), but we’ll let you know as soon as we do!

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

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!
