Jesus and Buddha will be living together in an apartment in Tachikawa for the first time… in live-action! And now, the live-action web series has revealed a brand new trailer. It introduces us to the divine duo, and teases some of the laughs we’ll be expecting in the series.
The “Saint Young Men” TV drama stars Kenichi Matsuyama (DEATHNOTE) as “Jesus Christ” and Shouta Sometani (STACY) as “Buddha”. The series is written and directed by Yuuichi Fukuda (GINTAMA 2) and produced by Takayuki Yamada (Yoshihiko The Hero), so expect some great laughs!
“Saint Young Men” centers on the ordinary daily lives of two extraordinary individuals: Jesus Christ and Buddha. The two holy young men move into a small apartment in the Tokyo suburb of Tachikawa, and attempt to understand modern humanity while hiding in plain sight. The series is renowned for its hilarious and lighthearted take on both Christianity and Buddhism, and even makes jokes about Jesus’ miracles and Buddha’s holiness.
