Saint Young Men (Saint Oniisan), a manga by Hikaru Nakamura, is apparently getting an anime film treatment sometime soon.
The anime film imagines if the Enlightened One Buddha (voiced by actor Gen Hoshino) and the Son of God Jesus (SAKEROCK band leader Mirai Moriyama) shared a low-rent apartment in Tokyo. The two holy beings have landed on Earth and now experience the mortal life in Japan. The two then proceed to get yelled at by their landlady because they did not separate their trash, and Jesus tells Buddha that he has always wanted to look up the idol group Momoiro Clover Z.
I guess Jesus and Mo had a falling out! I expect I will be amused by this, though I’ll probably have to wait for a subtitled translation.
One thought on “Jesus and Buddha get an apartment in Tokyo”
Ah, Japan’s unique little religion gives it freedom to mock the other ones in the best of ways. This looks hilarious and fantastic, and definitely worth seeing. Hopefully it broadcasts on crunchyroll.
