    Announced back in June, the live-action adaptation of Saint Young Men (Saint Onii-san in Japanese) finally got a new trailer! The trailer shows a slice of Jesus and Buddha’s life in a one-bedroom apartment in Tachikawa, Tokyo. Saint Young Men’s new trailer might be in Japanese, but it’s definitely worth a watch!

    Check out the new trailer here:

    In case you aren’t familiar with the series, Saint Young Men is a manga-turned-anime series about Jesus and Buddha vacationing on Earth as roommates. The series is not only popular among anime fans, it’s also garnered praise from critics; it actually won the 2009 Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize, one of Japan’s top manga awards.

    In the live-action adaptation, Ken’ichi Matsuyama plays Jesus while Shota Sometani plays Buddha. Juding from the trailer, it looks like both actors nailed their respective characters (in my opinion at least).
