posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Grand Blue Dreaming manga artist Kimitake Yoshioka launched a new manga titled Tenpuru (Temple) on Kodansha's Comic Days manga app and website on Saturday. The first chapter is available for free, and the second chapter is available for a fee.
The "envious new life comedy" manga follows Akemitsu Akagami, a young man who decides that since his polluting, lecherous thoughts are too hard to handle, he is going to become a Buddhist monk who will live a stoic life, free of women. However, his sinful blood will not allow him to do so. When Akemitsu goes to a Temple to start his studies, he is greeted by a beautiful young woman.
Yoshioka and Kenji Inoue launched the Grand Blue Dreaming (Grand Blue) manga in Good! Afternoon in April 2014. Kodansha published the manga's 10th volume on March 7. The manga marks the first time Inoue is authoring an original manga work. The manga was nominated in the Best General Manga category at Kodansha's 41st annual Manga Awards last year.
