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?

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

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
