Yes yes yes!!! This manga really intrigued me so much so I’ve reread each English release like 5 times because the characters are just that interesting to me and I was desperate to fully understand their motives. I cannot wait for this and for the rest of the volumes to be released in the US.

Wow, these sorts of series barely got acknowledged way back when, if they were lucky, maybe a short (and terrible) OVA could be made.

I just wonder how wildly unprofessional Kurose will be in the anime, I kind of look forward to that!

This isn't the one with the 6 couples, is it? The one with the delayed release? Shocked

Hahaha...Oh, wow would you look at that^^ After such a long time the top two best seller BL manga in Japan today finally got their respective anime adaptations (this and Dakaretai) happen to be the top seller among their counterparts till this day. Good for the fans who already waited long time to see these news. I hope this and Dakaretai at least got a decent/good visuals for the eyecandy.

If only Yamamoto Kotetsuko's titles and others (like Kii Kanna, 10 dance, Saezuru, etc) can sold around 100K, that probably going to increase their chances sooner to get greenlight for anime adaptations, too. Well....hopefully some of those other titles including Hidamari, Given, etc can still have their chances in the future.

TL;DR. Btw...I also second XenoglossiaNV's post above. This isn't just part of that 6 Lovers ova that being delayed, right?!

Oh man, I remember following this artist on Pixiv way back in the day. They've really found lots of success. Good for them!

sorry, but I think this is terrible news... I read this series and love it but an anime promoting it into the "mainstream" is going to reinforce the common view that yaoi is just non-con porn and fujoshis read it just to get off. even though the relationship gradually develops, all non-BL fans are going to see is a really disturbing dynamic with lots of smut because they'll drop it after a few episodes...

Hate to break it to ya, but this also applies to fans of yuri. Didn’t stop “Citrus” from getting an anime, so why bring this up when “Ten Count” is confirmed? To me, I think the fanboys and fangirls will finally get their fair share of BL and GL anime this year and I’m okay with that.

I didn't bring it up then because I didn't read Citrus and had no opinion on it getting an anime...? Citrus got tons of backlash about being creepy incest so you're proving my point

I mean... if they adapt it right there won’t be a problem. Obviously I hope they’ll take the psychological aspects seriously as well as the intimate scenes. We won’t know until they start showing us clips. And if that’s what others want to think, let em. If they can’t see past the smut that’s on them.

^ I wouldn't worry. It'll probably be done sorta like Sekaiichi Hatsukoi was. The manga is far more graphic than the anime ever was.

Anyways, yay more BL anime.

Well, at least it's not the Omegaverse stuff yet. Yeah, omegaverse is super popular in Japan now. It's literally just the same high-school-student/office-workers non-con stuff but with omegaverse.
