From a young age, Akemitsu Akagami was taught by his father that people can never live alone. But underneath the seemingly prudent advice lies a truth that corrupts it—sons of the Akagami lineage are infamous for being heinous playboys. Determined to clear the notoriety of his family name, Akemitsu keeps his distance from girls throughout his life, only to become a victim of his bloodline's instincts, as he falls in love at first sight.

In a last-ditch effort to rid himself of these desires, Akemitsu travels to a nearby temple in hopes of receiving Buddhist training. However, chaos ensues when the girl he had fallen for greets him at the door. After the commotion settles, he discovers the temple is actually a nunnery from which his father had borrowed millions before fleeing. Now working at the nunnery to repay the outstanding debts, Akemitsu tries his best to compose himself and stay celibate while being surrounded by lovely girls of all kinds.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Temple was released on Blu-ray in two volumes by King Records from October 25, 2023, to November 22, 2023. The anime adapts the first 46 chapters of the manga.

Veterans who grew up with the ecchi/harem of the 2000s (or at least recently liked series from that era) will find Temple like you were watching Mahoromatic or Love Hina in your teenage years. And in a generation of fans who are more demanding every day with entertainment - expecting, I don't know, that everything is about society's problems or socio-political criticism - Temple gives a slap to those rabid fans who expect that all demographics (including ecchi) are subordinated to the same type of narrative: Always having a "purpose" that, otherwise, ruins the tranquility of those who consume it by being "uncomfortable."

The problem with ...

A Love Hina-like ecchi, rom-com harem that's not that bad? From the illustrator of one of AniManga's most celebrated works? I highly question my doubts.

Yes, you heard me right. From the illustrator of mangaka Kenji Inoue's high-octane, no-holds-barred comedy fest that is Grand Blue (which everyone celebrated both the ongoing manga and anime, and the Summer 2018 anime is certainly one of the best literal Summer sensations of the 2010s) comes Kimitake Yoshioka branching out in September 2018 with his own series: Temple a.k.a TenPuru: No One Can Live on Loneliness, a shameless clone/carbon copy of the harem trend that has been set since famed ...

What a failure of a show this was. After watching Immoral Guild and KamiKatsu I was really looking forward to a bit of guilty pleasure ecchi so you shouldn't have trouble imagining how disappointed I was when we got served up whatever slop this was.

This was supposed to be ecchi, but it was so lame that a normal anime heavy on the fan service would have been more titillating. The girls looked okay but were let down by the animation (except for the stills in the ED), and their personalities were flatter than the paper they were drawn on.

As for the comedy, entire episodes would ...
