This was it, the final day of the Ten Count anime countdown that began on October 28, 2022. A total of 4 hours had passed when the official notification finally arrived.
Here is the final scene (cue dramatic music):
Ten Count, based on the yaoi manga series of the same name by Rihito Takarai, will soon have an anime adaptation. The release date for the Ten Count anime film is expected to be announced sometime in 2023.
The animation is being created by East Fish Studio and SynergySP. The anime movie is directed by Sou Toyama (Street Fighter II), with Tomomi Shimazaki working on character design.
Shinnosuke Tachibana and Tomoaki Maeno will provide the voices of the primary characters Tadaomi Shirotani and Riku Kurose.
At the time the countdown appeared, the official Ten Count anime Twitter announced unequivocally that “a Ten Count animation adaptation (is) coming.”
Still, many fans were eagerly awaiting the official news.

Since the announcement of a Ten Count anime adaptation occurred more than four years ago, on March 26, 2018, the day the last volume of the Ten Count manga was released, the word “finally” is used here to emphasize the point.
When it was reported that an anime adaptation of Ten Count would debut in 2020, a teaser video and a central image were also released. Both vanished without a trace after the Ten Count production committee announced on December 28, 2020, that the anime would be delayed until an undisclosed date as the group considered new formats for the show.
Keeping in mind that Ten Count is a yaoi title (BL with explicit content). The pattern routinely imposed on all commercial yaoi manga adaptations guarantees that the anime will be changed into a shounen-ai (BL minus explicit content) release.
Countless examples have shown this to be the case. There is a cult following for numerous yaoi manga, light novel, and video game adaptations that have been made into shounen-ai anime. To name just a few, there is Junjou Romantica, Dakaichi: I’m Being Harassed by the Sexiest Man of the Year, Togainu no Chi, DRAMAtical Murder, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi (The World’s Greatest First Love: The Case of Ritsu Onodera), Ai no Kusabi, and many more.
Ten Count’s anime announcement arrives as the shounen-ai genre appears to be gaining more fans thanks to the popularity of series like Given and Sasaki and Miyano.
About The Ten Count Manga Series
From 2013 until 2017, Rihito Takarai’s manga series Ten Count ran in Shinshokan’s monthly BL manga magazine Dear+. These six tank on volumes are a compilation of all the individual chapters.
For its English-language publication, Viz Media has licensed Ten Count and is releasing the chapters under its SuBLime boys-love banner. You can also get this book in digital form.
The series fared well for a yaoi title, topping the Nationwide Bookstore Employees’ Recommended BL Comics chart in both 2014 and 2015.
- Two video games were previously inspired by Ten Count, and an anime version is currently in the works.
- Released on March 22, 2018, for Ameba users, Ten Count: Another day (Ameba) will cease service on November 29, 2019.
- Count to ten using the iOS/Android app React, which debuted on January 7, 2019, and will shut down on June 30, 2020.
Tadaomi Shirotani is the protagonist of the show; she has OCD that appears as intense mysophobia. Tadaomi’s therapy with psychologist Riku Kurose involves writing down ten things he can’t do. Once Riku does the tasks on the list, he will have cured Tadaomi, or so the story goes (exposure therapy).
Kurose stops seeing his patient for therapy since he’s falling in love with her. That obstacle is cleared, but the two still have a long road ahead of them.
It remains to be seen how the anime adaptation of Ten Count handles the more delicate aspects of the plot (which are many and rather explicit). We can only hope that the intricate plot won’t be mutilated by censoring, and instead take a page out of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi’s book and use subtle gestures to hint at what’s lacking in order to portray the bond between the film’s two leads.
