Live-action ‘Saint Young Men’ Season 2 gets a new trailer and release date

Watch more of Jesus and Buddha's hijinks this June!

Last February, it was announced that the live-action adaptation of Saint Young Men was renewed for a second and third season. Now, we finally have the first trailer for the second season of the Saint Young Men live-action series!

Watch the quick teaser for Saint Young Men S2 here (no English subtitles though):


In case you’re unfamiliar, the Saint Young Men (or Saint Onii-san) series is based on the manga-turned-anime series of the same name. MyAnimeList describes the Saint Young Men manga as:

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.”

The first season of the live-action adaptation had 10 episodes, and it aired on the Piccoma TV streaming service in Japan last October 18. The main duo are played by Ken’ichi Matsuyama (Jesus) and Shota Sometani (Buddha).

Season 2 of the Saint Young Men live-action series will be streamed on Piccoma TV this June 1. The series will also get a cinema release in select Japanese theaters on June 6.
