Only 10 episodes? wow things are getting really stupid and people really lazy. I know it was an oversexed anime, but still a season used to be 14 episodes with reruns, then people dropped to 12, maybe you get 25 for a year… but things only being 10 episodes? are they adopting Ameri-trash TV stupidity now? Will many anime end like Eureka from SyFy with only 4~6 episode seasons? Might as well just make a movie at 18 minutes*6 than to even bother with something weekly.

The world is just getting pathetic. :angry:

Kadokawa has doing this for quite some time.
And they usually fill the gap with an extra episode or two as bonus episodes on the DVD/BDs.

The “cable networks” at least have the partial excuse that they only run their shows during the big hiatuses on the real networks. Anime has only cheapness to fall back on for reasoning.

The problem with short shows is that one that tells its story well in its condensed timeframe is rare, especially when that timeframe is further curtailed to 10 eps. I remember learning quickly when I got into the fandom that of an anime only had 13 eps then it was going to be a jerky, unfulfilling ride. Thirteen gradually gave way to ten and that’s only made the problem worse.

Oh, if only the tedious filler eps of the mainstream shounen could have been converted into extra eps for other series; even though it has 24 eps to play with, Irregular at Magic High School (sounds like something exlax could fix…) needed some more running time.

[size=20]Press Release: Global Yaoi Publisher SuBLime Launches the Romantic Comedy Manga Series Love Stage!![/size]
May 1st 2015

GLOBAL YAOI PUBLISHER SuBLime LAUNCHES THE ROMANTIC COMEDY MANGA SERIES LOVE STAGE!!

An Average Guy With A Family Full Of Celebrities Dreams Only Of Becoming A Manga Creator Until Romance Intervenes And Catapults Him Back Into The Life Of A Cute Actor He Knows From Childhood

San Francisco, CA, May 1, 2015 – SuBLime, the leading global yaoi manga publisher in the English language, is proud to announce the launch of the romantic comedy LOVE STAGE!! on May 12th.

The yaoi manga series by noted creators Eiki Eiki and Taishi Zaou will be released in print and digital and is rated ‘M’ for Mature Readers. Individual print volumes will carry an MSRP of $12.99 U.S. / $14.99 CAN.

A digital version of LOVE STAGE will also be available for an MSRP of $5.99 U.S. each and will offer fans digital access to all volumes in two ways on SuBLimeManga.com – a DRM-free downloadable PDF that is viewable on any enabled eReader device and computer as well as via the online manga viewer found on the web site.

Though his family is packed with famous celebrities, Izumi Sena is just your average guy. Currently a college student, he is a huge otaku with aspirations of becoming a manga creator. But one day he gets roped into filming a TV commercial and meets hot young actor Ryoma Ichijo. Could this be the same boy he starred in a commercial with over ten years ago?!

LOVE STAGE!! has been adapted into a drama CD as well as a popular 10-episode anime series that is available both on DVD and via streaming in the U.S. The creators of the manga also publish doujinshi (independent comics) under the name "Kozouya.” Fans can find out more about Eiki Eiki and illustrator Taishi Zaou at their website, http://www.kozouya.com/.

“Fans have been very excited for this release ever since we first announced during our manga panel at last year’s YaoiCon plans to publish LOVE STAGE!!,” says SuBLime Editor Jennifer LeBlanc. “The series’ creators, Eiki Eiki and Taishi Zaou, are renowned among legions of yaoi and shojo manga fans for their collaborative works and we are thrilled to debut their first title for the SuBLime imprint!”

Eiki Eiki is the creator of numerous yaoi and shojo manga. Her previous English-language releases include Train★Train, Millennium Prime Minister, and The Art of Loving.

Manga illustrator Taishi Zaou’s works have been published in English, French, and German. Her previous English-language releases include Green Light, Fevered Kiss, Living for Tomorrow, Mysterious Love, and Electric Hands.

Q. So, I see Love Stage!! is finally (!) getting a Blu-ray/DVD release. But… no dub? Safe to assume no features, as well? Not even the OVA? Why no love for Love Stage? :’(

A. The OVA will be included in the upcoming release.
