Taishi Zaou and Eiki Eiki’s BL manga and anime series, Love Stage!!, is getting a live-action film adaptation. And now, the staff have revealed the very first trailer for this upcoming Boys Love movie.
The cast includes Masahiro Sugiyama as Izumi Sena, Hiroki Nakada as Ryouma Ichijou, and Shinichi Wagou as Rei Sagara. BREAKERZ band member DAIGO, who is also Eiki Eiki’s younger brother, will play Shougo Sena. In addition, BREAKERZ will also be performing the film’s theme song.
Co-mangaka Eiki Eiki, who writes the manga’s story, is also writing the film’s script. The announcement also stated that the film is slated to premiere sometime in 2020.
Here’s how Crunchyroll describes the anime’s story:
Izumi was born in a family of celebrities. His father is a singer, his mother an artist, his older brother the lead vocalist for the popular band Crashers. Izumi himself, however, is just a nerdy college student. He loves the manga “Magical Girl Lala Lulu” and dreams of becoming a manga writer himself. One day he is roped into filming a commercial where he wears a dress. Another actor on the set, Ryoma Ichijo, mistakes him for a woman and falls in love at first sight. As it turns out, though, they met ten years in the past. And Ryoma feelings don’t change when he finds out Izumi is a boy.
The manga itself received a successful TV anime adaptation in 2014, which also lead to the release of an OVA. Expect the staff to reveal more details on the film soon.
