Kimitake Yoshioka has been drawing the TenPuru -No One Can Live on Loneliness- manga on Kodansha’s manga service Comic DAYS since September 2018. The series released the first compiled volume in July 2019 and surpassed 1 million circulating copies as of the sixth volume’s release in November 2021. The latest, eighth, volume is scheduled to be released on January 23, 2023.
Kodnasha is publishing the official English version as a BOOK WALKER Global exclusively and currently, six volumes are listed. The online platform describes the plot of the debut volume as:
Akemitsu Akegami was always told by his father that “”no one can live alone””…but he’s sure determined. After all, his father sure wasn’t saying it with the best intentions, and Akemitsu has no desire to become like that creep. But when a chance encounter with a young woman leaves him with thoughts that are all too impure, he decides to do what he must–become a Buddhist monk and renounce worldly ways. But the temple he decides to devote himself to…is full of women? And that same young woman is there, too?? What’s a guy to do? A new harem rom-com from Kimitake Yoshioka, illustrator of the hit college-comedy Grand Blue Dreaming!
