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 itís 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 Shirotaniís condition?

Huge disappointment   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

I'm so so disappointed of the way this story is heading... I have a high expectation on the beginning and because I really like this author I believed this will be great story. But this one, since the volume 2, is just great disappointment and I have to steadily lower the rating with every new chapter >_<

I was first intrigued with the possibility of slowly and carefully trying to treat a severe phobia, not realizing that this was yaoi. I was definitely sucked into the characters Kurose and Shirotani. The side characters also add a surprising amount of depth. I look forward to how Takarai-sensei will expound on "curing" mysophobia.

But wow. They are both super hot, and chapter 14 is the sexiest chapter ever in the history of manga. -dies-

The wrong turn

The story takes a wrong turn when we reach the second volume. When a character who was barely given any shadow of a personality at all in the first round of chapters still manages to lose his credibility, then we have a problem. I feel that the author was so anxious to set the plot moving that she rushed in and over did it, really. There's no way I would root for a person like Kurose to win over his case. Not that Shirotani-san was all that lovable either (so inconsistent for a guy with such a troublesome problem) but hey, at least he was just minding his own business.

Some reviewers have pointed out that the phobia per se is well portrayed in this story. Well, I wouldn't know about that but I sure can point out a bad doctor when I see one. For starters, I have a very hard time believing a doctor who straightforwardly affirms that "love is a kind of dependence". Was this a hint for the audience? Are we suppose to feel that Kurose is mentally-unstable or something, that he can become a problem later in the course of the story? Because, if not that, than this is just bad dialogue. Then, of course, we have the total disregard for his patient's condition:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The sex assault. Does this even need to be said? It's was distasteful, the attempt, the location, the mood-- argh-- all of it

The beginning was alright I guess. Some things could have been done with differently to ease the pace and the mood but, overall, I was having fun. However, the whole thing completely falls apart as we go. Even the art is iffy. I've seen way better from Rihito-sensei.

I will continue reading it just to see if Kurose turns out to be a serial killer or not but that's pretty much it haha.

This manga wow. I couldn't stop reading, it really drew me in. I've seen the whole OCD I hate germs concept many times, and they didn't portray it will in my opinion. But sensei gave Shirotani a specific personality and stuck with it, even as Shirotani's character grew and changed there was always that one action that made me say "ahh he still has a long way to go". And the art was perfect! I anticipate more.

Good Concept

This manga has a really good concept! I adore the art style from Takarai-sensei and the storyline is cute. The thing that kinda bothers me is the fact that Shirotani has Mysophobia. Not the obvious fact that he has mysophobia, but the way she portrays it doesn't seem so realistic. Having any kind of phobia is a big deal and the "treatment" he's going through in the manga isn't so professional. I know that this is only a manga, but she should have put herself in the characters shoes to fully understand how terrifying it can be. Asides from that, I'm looking forward to see how the manga unfolds itself.

Better take on mysophobia, but imperfect.

Well, mysophobia varies from each person who has it. First of all, the art is beautiful as always. I do appreciate how much thought was put into representing mysophobics. But...
1) I were touched a doorknob with my bare hands, there's no way I'd be able to do anything without first washing my hands. I wouldn't want to contaminate my belongings. The thought of the possibility of someone having scratched their crotch and then touched the knob terrifies me. There's also no need to be able to touch it if I could just use my sleeve or the cloth on my shirt.
2) In my case, I can function fine in daily life. I'm fine with touching most things that I believe don't have a high concentration of germs. I feel no need to change, but even if my condition were as bad as Tadaomi's, there's no way I'd want to change. I'd think, "it can't be helped, because there will always be gross people on this earth. They should change instead, or move far away from me and anything I'll ever touch".
3) That said, exceptions do occur. At least for me, some of my friends keep themselves cleaner than most people, and I'm fine with hugging them. (Hand-holding, not so much.) And there have definitely been people I'd be more than fine with kissing.

By the way, I HATE groups that do ugly coloured versions of title pages without providing the original. They should've just left it to Canis Major, which does much better typesetting (dear god the typesetting is abysmal) and their lineart is much less over-levelled. And had much less grammatical errors.

I'm looking forward to the next chapters, but I can't help but feel I'd enjoy it a lot more if Canis Major did the scanlations again. I haven't seen group scanlation work this bad since Attractive Fascinate.

This is really cute! The concept is similar to the author's other work, "Seven Days", except instead of counting days it's counting off the items on his list.. But yea, so far i'm really liking this one, and the art is gorgeous smile

First manga I've seen with a mysophobic character, so I give sensei props for representing us mysophobes. I felt it was a bit inaccurate at times, as well as a bit flippant (there is no way that after doing something once, like touching a public door handle, he can do it again without a problem. Even doing it the first time with cuts on his way >.< Also, going into a hospital without wearing a mask? Yikes lol And then saying germs 'don't exist' when they really do...) But I'm sure sensei did her best with her research, so I can let the little things slide. Number 10 is going to be kissing, I'm willing to bet on it bigrazz

Sensei Takarai Rihito never disappoints us

If you are a fan of fulfilling stories, character development and beautiful art, this manga is for you. Any manga written by Sensei Takarai is a master piece. I fell in love with Hana no mizu shiru and it is still one of my favourite mangas (top 5 for sure), and I am quite interested in this new one. As other people mentioned, the approach to the psychological aspect is quite interesting and not think thin-skinned as it happens in many other mangas. I hope the group will continue to scan this becuase I am already anticipating an incredible story and I am looking forward to it.

This manga seems to be really good, i mean is kind of different the mysophobia topic.
And it's pretty funny too, without mention that i'm in love with Rihito-san's drawing, so it's a great plus!
I'm really looking forward for this manga!!
