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?

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Old WEEBs, your time has come. TenPuru (or Temple) is pretty much one of those old school harem/ecchi anime from those distant 2010's.

The plot follows Akemitsu, a college student trying to stay away of his father (and grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great-grandfather...) womanizer lifestyle by joining a monastery, but for harem reasons, he ends in a nunnery full of high school girls, where he must pay his father's astronomical debt (not just a womanizer) with his body... working, of course.

The plot is actually pretty funny, almost stupid, but just almost, so it keeps really funny (this manga is from Grand Blue illustrator). The first episode is really ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/12 eps)
So... I went into this one with so much hope but i really am disappointed...

I really enjoy the 00's vibe on this but it's not "clicking" for me. After 3 eps the comedy seems pretty generic, the characters are nothing special, and the story is quite boring, if i'm being honest.
You'll probably enjoy this show if you are just getting into the genre but for someone that has watched a few of theses shows, it doesn't bring anything new to the table. Same characters, same jokes, similar storyline.
Also the voice actor of the MC just doesn't fit I don't know why, call me picky or ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Girls fall over for no reason. Breasts pop out for no reason. People slip and get on top of each other for no reason. This anime gives Looney Tunes a run for its money. I understand it's ecchi/harem but anime has evolved enough to tell decent stories even while having ecchi/harem and fanservice elements. It's disappointing when a series recycles the elements from things that aired two decades prior.

Art/Animation: 9/10
First of all, the art for this anime is great. It's saturated, warm, and every character has vibrant hair colour and hairstyle. The temple scenes and background are also detailed and drawn well. Since this is ...
