A theatrical animation will premiere in 2023, according to the official website and Twitter account for the anime adaptation of Rihito Takarai’s Ten Count boys-love manga.

The Ten Count Film, initially scheduled for 2020 and set to adapt the guys’ love manga by Rihito Takarai, has now received some information. The anime project has officially confirmed its status as an anime movie with a scheduled release date in 2023, and a new teaser image prominently features its stars.

Ten Count Film Storyline

Corporate Secretary Tadaomi Shirotani, a character in Ten Count, has a severe mysophobia also known as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or fear of germs. This dread completely paralyzes him, making it difficult for him to function in public. He visits Riku Kurose, a therapist, with the hopes of overcoming his issues.

But to handle and get over his trauma, Kurose advises Shirotani to attempt exposure therapy. Kurose requires Shirotani to compile a list of 10 things he wishes to accomplish as part of this.

He initially makes significant progress on his list, but issues quickly surface when Kurose wants to cancel their therapy sessions after confessing he has fallen for Shirotani.

Shirotani, however, is adamant about going on, so they continue their treatment while simultaneously having a sexual connection, which forces Shirotani to examine the root reasons for his problems in great detail.

Such a connection would undoubtedly be immoral in the real world. However, the focus of Boys Love media has always been on strange, unsettling, or unethical relationships. However, this is not particular to the genre.

Numerous widely read heterosexual romance books and rom-com depict relationships and behaviors that are egregiously immoral in real life. But that is a feature of the genre’s attractiveness. They offer us a glimpse of a world where one can flout conventional norms and fantasize about the prohibited, although it remains ambiguous.

Ten Count Film Cast, Studio, and Key Visual
