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?
Our MC and uke-kun, Shirotani, has misophobia and surprise surprise, this series treats it with respect and realism. That’s right, no magical dick here to heal diseases, cause it doesn’t work like that! 👏👏👏
In fact, there’s a rawness and darkness, no punches pulled as we see both the damages it has caused to him -his hands are completely fucked up, full of wounds and bleeding/cracks – but also how he sees the world. When the filth/darkness spreads, you can both see and feel how it impacts him.
There’s nothing quite as visual media to show how a character sees the world, themselves, especially when making full use of imagery. Something that doesn’t exist or can’t be seen on the naked eye, can be represented in a strong way like this.
From the moment they meet, as Kurose saves Shirotani’s boss from being flattened by a truck, he sees clearly through Shirotani. Kurose immediately says he has mysophobia, and pushes him to try to get treatment. What would be farfetched isn’t by the discovery that Kurose is a psychiatrist, and so he really just wants to help him lead a better life.
But is that true? Is that really it?
