Hikaru Nakamura's story of Buddha & Jesus as roommates to open on Friday

The official website for the the Saint Young Men (Saint Oniisan) anime film began streaming a second trailer on April 20.

The anime film and Hikaru Nakamura's original manga imagine if the Enlightened One Buddha (voiced by actor Gen Hoshino) and The Son of God Jesus (SAKEROCK band leader Mirai Moriyama) shared a low-rent apartment in Tokyo's Tachikawa area. The two holy beings have landed on Earth and now experience the mortal life in Japan.

Noriko Takao (episode director on Clannad, K-ON!, Lucky Star) is directing at A-1 Pictures off a screenplay by Rika Nezu (live-action Kimi ni Todoke, live-action Absolute Boyfriend).

The original manga has sold more than 9.5 million copies. An original anime DVD was bundled with the eighth manga volume in December, and a second anime DVD will ship with the ninth volume in July.

The film will open in Japan on Friday.
