Ken'ichi Matsuyama (live-action Death Note, Gantz) will play Jesus and Shōta Sometani (live-action Parasyte, Bakuman.) will play Buddha. Additionally, Jiro Sato (live-action Death Note, Gintama) will play a doctor, and Umi Yamano (live-action Aoi Honō, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.) will play the landlady of the apartments where Jesus and Buddha live together.
The manga inspired an anime film that premiered in Japan in May 2013. The manga's eighth and ninth volumes both bundled original anime DVDs when they shipped in December 2012 and July 2013, respectively.
