The official website for Kodansha's Morning magazine and manga imprint announced on Thursday that not only is Hikaru Nakamura's Saint Young Men comedy manga getting an anime film, but also a separate, original anime DVD. The special edition of the eighth manga volume will bundle the DVD when it ships on December 3.
The website also announced the film's staff:

- Screenplay: Rika Nezu (live-action Kimi ni Todoke, live-action Absolute Boyfriend)
- Character Designer: Naoyuki Asano (chief animation director on Doraemon films)

- Production: Aniplex, Kodansha, Toho

The website reports, tongue-in-cheek, that production on the film is going well for release sometime "this century."
