A new movie is adapting Taishi Zaou and Eiki Eiki’s Love Stage!! boys-love manga into live-action. And now, the movie’s staff has revealed a brand new trailer… and yes ladies, it does have kissing scenes. Here it is:
The movie itself opens in Japan this year, with mangaka Eiki Eiki writing the scripts. It stars Mahiro Sugiyama as Izumi Sena, Hiroki Nakada as Ryouma Ichijou, Shinichi Wagou as Rei Sagara, and BREAKERZ band member DAIGO as Shougo Sena. BREAKERZ is performing the movie’s theme song as well.
The manga received a TV anime adaptation back in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed it in the west, and here’s how they describe its 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.
Expect the staff to reveal more details about the movie in the days to come.
