New TenPuru Trailer Shares Ending Theme Song

A new promotional video for the upcoming summer anime TenPuru has dropped. In it, you can hear the ending theme song “Oidemase! Mikazukidera,” which is sung by the five main voice actresses in the show.

TenPuru, which is based on the manga series TenPuru -No One Can Live on Loneliness- by Kimitake Yoshioka, will debut this July. It’s being streamed in America by Crunchyroll. Here’s what we know about the cast: Masayuki Akasaka plays Akemitsu Akagami, Aimi plays Yuzuki Aoba, Yū Serizawa plays Tsukuyo Aoba, Nanami Yamashita plays Kurage Aoba, Madoka Asahina plays Mia Christoph, and Sumire Uesaka plays Kagura Baldwin.

The anime is being made at Gekkō, with Kazuomi Koga of Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible and Rent-A-Girlfriend helming the project as the director. The person in charge of series scripts is Yōhei Kashii, who has worked on My One-Hit Kill Sister. Credit for character design goes to Masato Katsumata, whose credits include The Quintessential Quintuplets the Movie.

The manga is available digitally in English through BookWalker Global, which gave this description of the plot:

“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!”

The manga made its debut on the Comic Days manga app from Kodansha in 2018.
