From Canis Major Scanlations:

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?

Beautifull art. good plot. Good characters. And provides a range of emotions, really. Some times is cute, others is sad, it also has its funny moments. But most of the times the characters oscilate between sexyness and pityfullness. They are bothe just so messed up...

Like some people say, the beginning had a lot of potential to turn in something great and I agree, but I wouldn't say the storyline is going downhill. There are many ways an author will take their story and this was just the way this mangaka did and I still find it interesting; yet I know it could've been better. However I'm still waiting for an update so it shows I'm still interested.

I really like Takarai Rihito as an artist, but as far as storylines go, I prefer her drawing for other authors (like in the case of Seven Days, or The Sleepy Residents of Birdcage Manor). I really wanted to get into this, I usually like psychological themed comics, but Ten Count is more focused on the yaoi part of it. And don't get me wrong, I've read pretty damn good yaoi stories as well, but for me this one fell short on many levels.

No, i dont mean that as s pun but now that ibthink about it ... Hahaha!

Anyways, i just want too frel something for the main characters. I kkiw that uke has ocd and the seme are displaying his own side of the crazy card but the premise is really good! I want more! I hope the author will be able to delover- i wont drop this the art is too giid abd as i said i like the ocd concept cause mental disorders aside from suicidal tendencies are so rarely talked about in manga.

I had hoped for something interesting seeing how there are rarely manga about mysophobia. Something to stand out or give me something new to think about, but nope, this is as remarkable as average BL except slightly more annoying that every scene was predicable w/o even trying. Doesn't help that the MC is like the typical uke and other characters are on the bland side. Overall, nice idea but could have been handled better.

First off, the art is excellent and though it takes a while to get to the smut, once it starts going... well it seems here to stay xD As for the characters, Kurose is a little difficult to understand in the beginning
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
-I feel like I finally fully understood Kurose's character in ch20-
however he is pretty much a confirmed sadist (not really hardcore but he definitely likes to mess with Shirotani). If you want a seme who waits for his uke to advance the relationship, this really isn't the right story for you.

What I feel that most people see as dub con is probably in the way the story's told. Kurose seems extremely keyed in to Shirotani's level of comfort. He definitely pushes him beyond his comfort level, but Kurose also seems to know when it really is too much for Shirotani and when it's not. Can that be considered dub con? Yes, but there are also not always extremely visible lines in real life. An SM relationship is all about pushing an M beyond their comfort level but knowing when it really is too much. Maybe Shirotani isn't a confirmed M, but Kurose would be looking for that in a relationship so it's not all that surprising that he would push Shirotani. (And although Shirotani is being pushed beyond his comfort levels, he's really not reacting much like some rape victim but rather like someone falling in love for the first time who's emotions are all messed up, imo.)

Shirotani, on the other hand, has an interesting take on mysophobia since he
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
seems to see himself as dirty and he wants to protect others from his own dirtiness. This is seen with the incident that seems to have started his mysophobia (in the closet) as well as the fact that he begs Kurose to promise to wash his hands after doing sexual things with him and not before.

Honestly, I've really been enjoying this story. I fell in love with Takarai Rihito's (and Tachibana Venio's) Seven Days and have enjoyed her works ever since.

Actually I'm not really a fan of Takarai Rihito. I really love her art but her stories are not that interesting to me (except for Seven Days though). I don't really know why this series is so popular. In fact, the plot really has potential and I was very excited at first. But then everything went downhill.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The way Kurose treated Shirotani pissed me off. At first he said some crap like he'd help Shirotani to cure his phobia but all I know is that he just abused Shirotani's body all day. He was like an emotionless beast, ignored all the suffer Shirotani's been through because of him. Even when he cried or begged, Kurose never had the intention to let him go. It really confuses me, is that the way you treat people with Mysophobia? Push them down and use sex toys on them? It also annoys me how Shirotani just clenched his teeth and flowed with everything, like he had no power to resist Kurose.

Every time I read a yaoi manga, the thing I want to see most is how they love each other. I want to feel the love between the characters. But with Ten Count, I simply can't feel anything like that. The art is excellent though. I'm kinda curious how the story will end but I don't think I will continue to read it.

This manga has everything that I've longed for. The pain, the sweetness, and the smut XD

I love Shirotani and surprisingly I also quite like Kurose (I usually find Takarai sensei's seme too "soft" for my liking). What a pleasant surprise.
Looking forward to the next chapter. Definitively my most favoratite manga from her so far (okay maybe tied up with Hana no mizo shiru and the manga hasn't end yet but you get what I mean)

About some complaints below, I say read it and decide it yourself, everyone has different taste after all. Its nothing. Really.

when i started reading this manga i thought it would be a simple, sweet story of shirotani overcoming his mysophobia while gently falling in love at the same time. it's a common premise with a better take on mysophobia than others mangas, though still imperfect, but i thought rihito-sensei would do it well and give us a sweet story like hana no mizo shiru.


somewhere in the story the tone suddenly shifts and kurose is definitely out for shirotani's body. there's some s&m overtones and it becomes clear that the psychological part is actually the struggle between shirotani's obvious feelings and his mysophobia. kurose's s&m angle is just a bonus, i guess. there is definitely some dub con scenes though to kurose's credit, he's much more respectful than any other rapey semes i've seen (lol), but dub con is dub con.

so yeah, started reading it for the story, stayed for the sexual tension and the smut, i guess. xD

Best twist ever

Why so many people seem to find the S&M/Domination undertones disappointing? It's the best twist I've seen in a yaoi manga in a very long time. I dropped this manga once, when it was still starting to get published, I thought it was boring as hell and cliche. Then BAM Kurose is no longer the stereotypical "nice" seme helping this guy overcome his mysophobia, but he's got a dark side to him and we slowly get a glimpse of it until (holycrapsohot) he makes a mess out of Shirotani's feelings and body and he just loves toying with him, in a loving way. I'm glad I decided to give it another try since it turned out to be completely different from the first few chapters, in a GOOD way!
