Description
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.

You see Jesus and Buddha experiencing Asakusa, public baths, theme parks, and the internet. Throughout the manga, we get a little history of their divine greatness only to see their apparent insignificance in modern Japanese society. Suffice to say, before people can recognize that they’re actually Jesus and Buddha, people think of them as someone who looks like Johnny Depp or a guy with a button on his forehead. For real.


Saint Oniisan received the 2009 Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize for Short Work Manga.

Nominated for the 2nd Manga Taisho Award (2009).

As I read it, I was thinking: Shame they didn't have Mohammed as an absent 3rd roommate.
This does provide an ousider's view of society without being too serious. Maybe it will encourage readers to find out more to learn where the characters deviate from history.

Gawd, I was literally laughing my ass off reading this manga.

Don't know, but it might offend someone who's really into their religion? But they aren't really portrayed in a negative way at all. So I think it's safe for everyone. I mean you'll just fall in love reading about Jesus and Buddha's everyday life on Earth.

If you're expecting Saint Young Men to portray either Jesus or Buddha accurately, then you're in for a disappointment. It's much less religion-heavy than it sounds. But this also means you should give it a chance even if you're not Christian or Buddhist.
