Saint Young Men

Saint Oniisan anime movie announced!

Synopsis from mangaupdates:
Quote:
Saint Oniisan is slice-of-life, or divine-life, tale of Jesus and Buddha as they try to experience the modern world: in this case, Japan. The manga places a funny twist on religion, attitudes, culture and customs in Japan through the eyes of Jesus and Buddha.

You see Jesus and Buddha experiencing Asakusa, public baths, theme parks, and the internet. Throughout the manga, we get a little history of their divine greatness only to see their apparent insignificance in modern Japanese society. Suffice to say, before people can recognize that they’re actually Jesus and Buddha, people think of them as someone who looks like Johnny Depp or a guy with a button on his forehead. For real.

Saint Oniisan received the 2009 Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize for Short Work Manga.

Nominated for the 2nd Manga Taisho Award (2009).

I've somewhat enjoyed the manga so I'll be sure to check out the anime.

I wonder which VA they'll choose.

More info on staff.

I have to admit I was kind of hoping for SHAFT but I guess they're kind of busy.

Still want to see it, though!

So practically this anime series is "What if God was one of us?", the anime series?
Actually, that sounds really interesting.

The VA list will probably make or break the show because, you know, it's Jesus and Buddha.
