When the President got into an accident, Shirotani Tadaomi met Kurose. On their very first meeting, Kurose could tell right away that Shirotani is mysophobic and said that it's pretty bad while suggesting it would be better to consult a doctor about it. Shirotani was left perturbed by the encounter. Who is Kurose? And how was he able to tell Shirotani's condition?

Let me start with a caveat. I read the reviews here first and then started reading Ten Count. So, I was initially not happy with the dominating seme and forcing...may be coercion is a better word for it...that is depicted in Ten Count. However, I couldn't get the story out of my mind. It really hits you in your heart. So, I wondered if I was missing something and I read it again.

And here's my opinion. A lot of the reviewers here focus on the BL trope and maybe they're sick of it. But in this story, I believe it truly was a part read more

At first I didn't think too much about Ten Count till the internet was shoving it i my face, won't hurt to read it right?


At first the story was really slow but if you like slow pacing it'll be perfect for you! It also giving you a trill when something major happens, it follows a man with a phobia and his journey to overcome it with the help of a unexpected friend. The relationship between the two is complicated, but things seems to be working other even if new troubles appear.


Nothing much to said other than it's GORGEOUS, the colours flow smoothly together making read more

I'm thinking I might pick this up again in the future when it's been completed because the art is just too beautiful, but I felt the story + characters were really lacking, especially after volume 2. I loved the first two volumes and was expecting that, if it continued the way it was going, it'd become a new favorite. But Kurose's behavior from volume 3 on really turned me off, and I felt that Shirotani was a really flat character that had far too many stereotypes.

But, like I said, the art was beautiful and I'm a sucker for that, so I might pick this up read more

I have to say that I did not dislike the manga, but it’s not exactly my personal choice of storyline. On the other hand though, I almost immediately developed a liking for the two main characters. Especially what drawer me into the storyline, is the fact that both Shirotani and Kurose, have such opposite characters, and I believe that’s what makes it great. Regardless of the fact that, it has a few sexual scenes, it does not heavily base it on that, instead it really focuses on the character development, and how Shirotani and Kurose develop their relationship. It’s just a bit of a shame, read more
