A leak from Weibo and the registration of the internet domain “https://temple-anime.com/” gave indications that the manga written and illustrated by Kimitake Yoshioka, Temple: No One Can Live on LonelinessIt will have an anime adaptation. The leak has not been confirmed, and it did not reveal production details or a scheduled release date either, so we have to wait for official information.
Yoshioka began publishing the manga through the digital service Comic Days from the publisher Kodansha in September 2018. The author is perhaps best known for being the illustrator of the manga Grand Bluewhich is written by kenji inoue. This manga is published in the magazine Good! Afternoon from the publisher Kodansha since April 2014, and inspired a twelve-episode anime adaptation produced by studios Zero-Gunder the direction and scripts written by Shinji Takamatsureleased in July 2018. To date there is no indication of a second season.
Akemitsu Akegami was always told by his father that “no one can live alone”… but he is very determined. After all, his father sure didn’t mean it with the best of intentions, and Akemitsu has no desire to become like that creep. But when a chance encounter with a young woman leaves him with impure thoughts, he decides to do what he must: become a Buddhist monk and renounce worldly ways. But the temple he decides to dedicate himself to… is it full of women? And that same young woman is also there? What can a man do?
