With several foreign translations of the original manga and its anime adapted series having gained global recognition, Eiki and Taishi eventually decided to bring Love Stage!! to life by greenlighting its live-action film adaption in 2020 after several versions of the highly popular BL manga in the past with a light spin-off novel in 2011, a TV anime series in 2014, and a final OVA at the end of the same year.

For its live-action film adaption, author Eiki Eiki, devised a screenplay that largely follows the original storyline of the BL manga and tells the story of the main protagonist of the series, Izumi Sena. Born into a family of renowned celebrities, with a mother who’s an artist, a father who’s a singer, and a brother who’s the main vocalist of a rock band, anyone would expect Izumi Sena to eventually enter the world of showbiz himself. However, aside from a television commercial for a wedding magazine where he was reluctantly made to dress as a girl when he was a child, Izumi has always shunned the spotlight and instead, aims to become a successful manga artist in the future.

But when the same wedding magazine calls for a tenth-anniversary ad, requesting the original child actors of the project to come together a decade later, Izumi is once again reunited with Ryoma Ichijou, now a popular actor who, much to Izumi's shock, has been in love with him ever since their first meeting 10 years ago. However, due to Izumi's feminine appearance and unisex name, Ryoma believed Izumi was a girl and continues to do so to this day. However, even after discovering the truth, Ryoma can't seem to shake off his feelings for Izumi.
