Why The Hell Are You Here, Teacher?!
Teacher...wh-what are you doing here? You're not allowed here, and moreover... Well, yes, I can see that you're having a problem, but you really should... Wait, why are your clothes coming off? Wh-what's happening??? Wait a second... Why the Hell Are You Here, Teacher?!
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!
Why The Hell Are You Here, Teacher?! volume 1-3 and TenPuru volume 1-2 will be available on global.bookwalker.jp from July 14th Pacific Time.
