10 Dance
Volume 1


The only two things that differentiate Shinya Sugiki and Shinya Suzuki from each other are the one-syllable difference in their names and dancing styles. Sugiki is the decorated "Lord of Standard Ballroom," while Suzuki is the fiery "King of Latin Dance." Neither of these talented dancers can see eye to eye, but they both have the ambition of winning the legendary 10 Dance Competition. The lengthy contest requires each dancing pair to perform ten unique styles of standard ballroom and Latin dancing.

Having no prior experience with Latin dance, Sugiki asks Suzuki to teach him. In return, he will show Suzuki the art of standard ballroom. Although Sugiki is initially against it, his dancing partner goads him into accepting the offer. As the two begrudgingly work together to refine each other's styles, an unlikely romance begins to blossom.

Preliminary (18/? eps)
Hot damn. This manga is sexy as hell. Think of it as a cross between "Ballroom e Youkoso", "YURI!!! ON ICE" and "Dirty Dancing". This is not a hot tumble but a slow-burning love story that develops slowly with lots of UST and comedy in between. The art in this manga is gorgeous and very dynamic, which is only fitting for a manga that is all about two professional ballroom dancers who are slowly falling for each other. The only bit I do not like because it is rather boring is the storyline regarding the two journalists. If this is ever turned into an anime, ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (28/? eps)
I only read this because my partner bought the first five volumes, and I'd give it a solid 6/10

Sports anime/manga (because dancing is a sport, this counts) aren't typically my cup of tea. Romance anime/manga even less so when it's got a lot of the "sexiness" that many people might actually finds draws them to a particular manga. This is because I prefer romance to be secondary to the plot, but that's why this manga was okay with me. The plot is the driving force behind the romance instead of the other way around, and that was nice to see.

That doesn't mean the plot ...
