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?

This manga, even if it's not finished yet, has been a huge disappointment for me. I started reading it because Takarai Rihito's art style is beautiful and when I read the plot, I thought, "hey, this could be nice!" but since the very beginning, it wasn't what I was looking for.

My lowest scoring is for the characters. Both, Shirotani and Kurose are so flat and stereotyped that it's disgusting. Shirotani is the typical shy and insecure uke, and you can probably say that's because of his phobia, but I rather think it's the opposite – the mangaka seems to use his phobia to make him read more

Takarai Rihito-sensei is known for her beautiful art in various series especially Seven Days and eventually made her own manga, Hana Series (Hana no Mizo Shiru + Hana no Miyako de) and not only she make beautiful art but her story is absolutely lovely too.

Now she brought another unique and lovely piece, Ten Count.

Story: 9/10

The story is really interesting the first time I read it. A guy who has Mysophobia (fear of contamination and germs) met this other guy who coincidentally works at a psychiatry clinic and is now trying to cure his phobia.

Just thinking about their situation really makes me (super) curious on what read more

I don't normally put up a review for yaoi manga unless they really strike a chord with me. At a mere 3 volumes, Ten Count is not normally a series I would review, however, something about it stands out from the crowd.

The manga is about the relationship between a mysophobic secretary, Shirotane (whose condition is so out of hand he can't ride on the train, eat in a restaurant or pick up something someone else has touched) and a child psychiatrist, Kurose. As someone who has struggled with a disorder, I found Shirotane to be represented really well - being both reluctant to change (there's read more

Ten Count is a really unique yaoi manga in my opinion. I have never seen a yaoi manga placed in this kind of setting before. Granted, maybe i have not read alot of yaoi manga, BUT, it truly surprised me.

STORY: 8/10
As i believe you read the summary, i will not elaborate much on its setting. Like ive said in the beginning, i have never seen a yaoi couple where one of them is Mysophobic. This is what makes this story so much different than from others. At first when i found out that Shirotani is mysophobic, i was like "wait. since most yaoi manga read more
