Official Ten Count dakimakura cover will feature two brand new illustrations from mangaka Takarai Rihito.
I guess the only complaint is that Shirotani and Kurose’s legs are cut off due to the 160cm length. The artwork is gorgeous! :D but the price is higher than expected of dakimakura of this size…
Ten count (テンカウント ) is the latest BL manga by Takarai Rihito who illustrated the hugely successful school-boy shounen-ai (if my memory serves me correctly) 2-vol. manga Seven Days セブンデイズ (written by Tachibana Benio 橘紅緒). It has been licensed, so grab the English copy at your local store :) Ten count’s licensed English version by Sublime is available on 9 August 2016.
The manga has an intriguing plot and from vol. 2 onwards has an increasing amount of smut to keep 18+ readers happy :P
Synopsis: Corporate secretary Shirotani suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. One day he meets Kurose, a therapist who offers to take him through a ten-step program to cure him of his compulsion. As the two go through each of the ten steps, Shirotani’s attraction to his counselor grows.
