1. The Truth Will Set You Free

Ryouma struggles with the truth much like Minori and Akihiko do.

Ryouma begins falling in love with Izumi and we assume that is where Minor and Akihiko are headed.

2. *Insert Sexy Time Noise Here*

1. The Continuation of What Happened in Love Stage!!

You know you were pissed when Izumi became the sky. Here in Dakaichi, there is no censorship. Sure, the sex scenes are a bit quick, but there is plenty of fanservice of the main characters rubbing up against each other or a hand dropping off screen to show the reaction of a character. The heat turns up rather quickly in Dakaichi and makes for good drama.

2. BL with a Good Story

BL Fans are flocking to Dakaichi and for good reason. While Love Stage!! was good, Dakaichi is more steamy and racy than regular BL while towing the line before just hitting Yaoi. Both the stories in the series are–somewhat–realistic and make for good drama which is the other thing you want included in a BL/Shounen-ai story. Bad plot makes for a bad series, but both Love Stage!! and Dakaichi hit that note well.

Final Thoughts

Those are just a few of the common points shared between Love Stage!! and the two shows that we listed here. What are your favorite shared points between the two series? Which of the two do you like better? Be sure to let us know down below! Till next time!
