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?

...I didn't think I would be able to like Shirotani. He annoyed me when I first started reading. I know he has a debilitating condition, but I just couldn't sympathize with him at first. Then I got over it and read it for the smut. Chapter 14 is still has one of the hottest bjs I've read. Anyway, the art was pretty the smut was hot and all was good until it wasn't. Towards the middle or 3/4 or the characters began looking off and the chapters got ridiculously short. People said the ending was satisfactory, but to me it left too many lose ends, the only thing that was resolved was their romance, but nothing ever came out of either Kurose or Shirotani's background and traumas. I didn't find the ending satisfying at all. In short, I think this one is a bit over rated. I enjoyed her previous stories more ( Hana no Mizo Shiru and Graineliers).

The set up of the story is pretty unique. Unfortunately the characters lack any actual personality. Therefore, while the story is somewhat interesting to follow, it's hard to actually become invested in the characters. The MC is just so weak and not really likeable. He doesn't really grow as a person beyond overcoming his illness by a bit. It's like he's DEFINED by this illness and nothing else. Everything is based and focuses on this illness. It just makes the characters so flat and boring. I really like the concept of this story. I just wish it had been explored deeper and in more meaningful ways. Additionally, all side characters are just plot devices and serve no other purpose. The art is pretty nice though, so helps somewhat.

With 8 different scanlation teams having worked on it to date, the grammar & scan quality are wildly inconsistant.

What's with "age gap" being in the tags? They're only 5 years apart.

Honestly, I saw some people complaining about the "lack" of relationship and character development in this manga, and I feel that this isn't true.

While it may seem that they aren't developing a lot, the truth is that they are, only at a very slow pace. I feel that this might annoy some people, but thats the way it works in reality. You don't just meet a counselor, suddenly get over your phobias, and open up to other people. It takes time to trust and love someone, and I feel that this manga does a great job of showing that.

Another thing that I've been seing is that people are unhappy with the progression of their relationship. I'd like to point out that if you keep reading the manga, you'll learn that Shirotani isn't the only one who has emotional and mental blocks that he developed in childhood. These problems are exemplified with the way that Kurose manipulates and shuts Shirotani out completely. However, as the story progresses, it is made clear that Kurose truely loves Shirotani and genuinely is trying to help him.

Overall, this story is very slow in the developement of the characters, however it makes it much more realistic, and the later flashbacks in the manga explain and help justify the way that the two of them act. If you don't want to read something dark or slow, than please don't read this because you'll be disapointed.

Plot: Shirotani, a guy with sever mysophobia mets Kurose, a therapist who who is willing to help Shirotani with his condition.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I liked how in twords the end Kurose becomes obsessed with Shirotani and a bunch of freaky things happened. There was a part where I was I was scared for what might happen in the end if Shirotani overcomes his mysophobia, thus fulfilling Kuroses intrest in him. But it all turned out ok.

I'm honestly confused here. By looking at the cover of the volumes of the series or reading the story where in the heck do you see comedy? It's obviously a darker seme story about a character that deals with being germs which is very rare to find in your typical yaoi series. The main character who struggled with his most of his life due to his childhood past has to do with this everyday but you don't see very often these shows are and yeah in particular. It's a very unusual and interesting concept about a person that has this type of phobia has to wash his hands every time he touches something that he doesn't like. I honestly didn't know what I was getting myself into until I read halfway through it and then gone back and read the rest and I really enjoyed with the series has to offer it's very different and I can see why it's very popular. Daycare just can be very interesting as the main care to try to develop him getting over this phobia and it's interesting that he had to write down 10 different concepts on what he just likes the most and even though the concept may be simple it goes far beyond that and there's even a Twist in the middle of the series this series is still ongoing but I really enjoyed what I've read from it it's interesting seeing these characters back story. I would say give it a shot however if you're not into a dark and twisted store in the story is not for you. If you're into comedy this is not for you either. If you looking for development in the series there is some and I really like how it goes and see if your typical story were a character loves another character and he doesn't know and it goes to rape equals love kind of thing which that is something you really see in the boys lunch on her and I can't stand that. But I really do enjoy the series so I would say give it a go.

I started reading it when the genres said it was a comedy. Ten chapters in I still couldnt see the comedy and then I realized.

Otherwise its meh. Nothing special. Its an interesing concept on the phobia but otherwise the characters are pretty boring

Don't know where people are seeing abuse in this story or The fact the kurose forces the main character to do anything. Most of the time he asked shirotani to do just about anything and his true motives and feelings. And mostly Shirotani either secretly wants it's anyway. Now Kuro may force one thing or two be shirotani again already knows it. After so many series that I read where the character just get the main character drunk and forces him to have sex, rapes the main character to understand his feelings, or just does it cause he feels like it. This one is not one of them.

The artwork has been seen and done before. Nothing new but certainly isn't ugly to look at.

Story is simple with a man trying to get cured of his problem. It's a rare treat and can't get complex after on. Does get somewhat dark and sexual but it not every chapter. Sometimes the two just go shopping, or help the main character with another cure which can't always be cured.

Love it. Love it.

I read this series in one sitting and enjoy it. The story is pretty unique from the thousands of yaoi I seen. It kind of refreshing in a way. But this series is not for everyone for it does have some dark and sad moments.

I want to rant badly. You've been forewarned!

Art. Sigh. Talk about personal preferences... Their childish and the same time robotic faces is the biggest turn-off... Honestly, they either look like sociopathic mass-murderes or simply clinically depressed and bored to death by life itself and not hiding it. Both options are bloody scary! I can't relate to them at all. While the art is clean - and I really appreciate it - something doesn't fail to irritate me from frame to frame. I'll have to keep it in my mind about this mangaka.

Plot. I like this idea and it all might have gone better if I didn't hate the execution. Exactly because this manga is not mindless kawaii overload about insta-love (just insta-rape more often than not) I'm so sad. Being quite strong-willed myself I don't really appreciate or enjoy how K forces S in different ways even if it's in order to "cure" him. (I do like that he's honest about his ulterior motives, I'll give him that) Tbh, I have a phobia of my own, so I know how irrational and all-consuming it can be (bleagh) but god forbid anyone try to manipulate me by exploiting my weakness. I clench my teeth and do the deed, on my terms and it's non-negotiable, so from my point of view why cannot S? The reward is worth it, I find. If it's absolutely impossible, fine by me, it's okay, too. To each their own. I prefer people to encourage each other, not force, to do anything. Let along of sexual nature. It boggles my mind how K is a doctor, but not with S, as he definitely uses his professional knowledge and skills to mold S into a submissive boysl*t ...the heck?

It's too much lol. Maybe this story was supposed to be the dark kind of reminder that life is unfair but I'd rather it was a manga about how a person heroically overcame his fears in order to be with his caring loving and understanding partner. So ...I'm giving it up at v. 3. G'luck everyone and don't let my (subjective) rant discourage you, please.
