What do you get when Buddha and Jesus come to the mortal world for a vacation, even sharing a low rent apartment in Japan? The answer is simple folks. You get "Saint Young Men"!

The comedy manga, written and illustrated by Hikaru Nakamura, had its first animated film feature announced for a 10th May 2013 release some months back. After a short few months, the 2nd visual was released to the public.

Since its debut at 2007, the manga was well received by the readers in Japan, even making it the tenth best-selling manga series for 2009.On top of that, the manga also received the 2009 Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize for Short Work Manga.

Their official website has also been updated with a character page, soundtrack information and theatre page. You can check it out here. Voicing Buddha and Jesus are Gen Hoshino and Mirai Moriyama respectively.

Although I've yet to read the manga, I'm looking forward to seeing the interactions between the two characters. After all, they are of different characteristics and I'm sure there is bound to be chemistry between the two.
