Jesus

Jesusor Jesus Christ, is the founder of Christianity and God's only son, as well as Buddha's roommate in an apartment in Tachikawa, part of the suburbs in Tokyo. He is voiced by Mirai Moriyama in the movie and OVAs.

About[]

Appearance[]

Jesus has long hair that reaches down his back. His front hair parts down in the middle and he is always seen with a crown of thorns encircling his head. He also has a small moustache and thin amount of hair on his chin. Jesus has a relatively well built physique but is thinner and slightly shorter than Buddha.

Personality[]

Jesus is the more cheerful and laid-back of the two. He enjoys telling and laughing at his own puns, which often leads to his forehead bleeding, a sign that becomes visible whenever he shows excitement. He also blogs about his everyday life. He is kind and gentle towards the people of earth. As he is Jesus after all, he can also be rather solemn and reflective, and even serious at times. Especially when talking about his past experiences on earth.

Story[]

(More to Come)

Relationships[]

Buddha[]

Jesus lives with Buddha at Matsuda Hights. He works with him to do the comedy duo, 'Man Perm and Hippie'.

Twelve Disciples[]

They were Jesus' friends but Judas betray him to torture poor Jesus on the cross.

This Manga About Buddha and Jesus is What the World Needs Right Now

Saint Oniisan |© Hikaru Nakamura / Kodansha

In 2017, lack of religious tolerance is something that dominates the news and clogs up social media, often making for depressing headlines and grim reading. Opportunities for reasoned dialogue or egalitarian debate feel like they’re thin on the ground. Amid this harsh cultural climate comes the ideal remedy from the unlikeliest of places.

It sounds like the opening line of a well-worn joke (or the topic of intense theological debate): what would happen if Jesus and Buddha shared an apartment together? That’s the conceit behind Saint Oniisan (Saint Young Men), a manga created by Hikaru Nakamura.

The spiritualist sitcom sees the iconic deities taking some well-deserved time off during a vacation in Japan, sharing a room together at modest digs in suburban Tokyo. While they make the most of their time off, they go to an amusement park, check out the local supermarket, visit an onsen, and take pictures of the cherry blossoms.

Saint Oniisan belongs firmly to the “Slice Of Life” genre in contemporary manga—everyday stories that work as analogies for the human condition or situations in which the characters have life-changing epiphanies, often in the most mundane of circumstances.

There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments to be had in Saint Oniisan: Jesus goes to a local convenience store only to be mistaken for Johnny Depp by giggling high school girls. Buddha’s zen-like calm on a hectic rollercoaster earns awe and admiration from punters at a theme park. The founder of Christianity accidentally turns the water at a swimming pool into wine, and the Buddhist figurehead has to shoo away hordes of cute animals who insist on resting on him while he tries to get some kip.

In the hands of Western animators, such a subject could easily have been treated as a heavy-handed critique of organized religion or handled as a gaudy, OTT satire. In Nakamura’s hands, it’s a gentle and affectionate look at the nature of faith, centered around a pair of likable protagonists who seem, if anything, entirely human. Jesus and Buddha are depicted as being just as well-intentioned and confused as the rest of us. Despite all their experiences and know-how, they still struggle to make sense of their place in the world.

@Hikaru Nakamura/Kodansha | © Hikaru Nakamura / Kodansha

The relationship between the two is platonic but warm—both accommodate the other’s religious proclivities, offering moral support when their counterpart is in need. Neither of them grandstands according to their beliefs, nor do they claim that their theology is the one true religion. Crucially, they are friendly and courteous towards others and never judge the mortals they encounter (not even yakuza or delinquent street kids). The people they do the most to nurture virtue in is themselves. What fine role models they are.

The original manga was released in 2006 but has been made contemporaneous thanks to an anime adaptation which started in 2013, with two Original Video Animations (OVAs) followed by a feature-length movie which was a hit at the box office. The latter follows the source material note-for-note, even down to the sketchbook-style artwork.

Interestingly, in the present day, Japan’s faith seems to be on the wane, where temples and shrines outside of the big cities face an uphill battle to stay open in the face of declining business. Participation in religious festivals and activities is becoming more and more customary. Nakamura’s work, however, is not some irreverent means of trivializing (and thereby marginalizing) religious beliefs. If anything, one gets the sense that she is not passing judgment either way—it’s not for her to say whether Jesus and Buddha’s belief structures are flawed. They simply are, and the ways in which the script brilliantly references their respective biographies shows Nakamura’s respect for her source material. Witness this fantastic scene, in which Jesus and a gangster converse in a sauna and discover they have more in common than either of them realized.

The success of Saint Oniisan (with at least 10 million copies sold) means that it has a live action version currently in production. It will be interesting to see how the manga’s tone carries over into live action, not to mention what audiences will make of it.

Saint Oniisan is one the most heartwarming and important manga of recent years. It reminds us how pressing it is to have art that reminds us of the need for peaceful co-existence, looking past dogma, and abandoning our prejudices in favor of something more joyful and light-hearted. If Jesus and Buddha can get along, why can’t the rest of us?

Watching a couple of hundred series and hundreds of more episodes, movies, OVAs, and other anime content, I have been able to find several that can be relatable to Christians.

Now, I am not saying these are anime made by Christians, or for Christians, or are they biblical in theme.

There are a couple of those, but I don't recommend them as they are pretty ancient (Superbook, Flying House). Instead, the list below reflects anime that either has lessons that we can apply to our daily walk with God or biblical themes found in the characters or plot.

One way or another, for me, these anime reminded me of who God is or how He wants me to live my life to honor Him. Some you might know, while others might be a surprise. Let me know which ones you think should have been on the list, and which of these you enjoyed or want to watch!

The 10 Best Christian Anime

Trigun

This is an older series, one of my personal favorites that I watched years ago sometime after it was released. I had no idea it would have any Christian themes until analyzing it a long time after viewing it. The series is about a wanted man named Vash the Stampede, who has a mysterious past.

He is very silly, but is extremely skilled with a gun and has an impeccable aim. He is hunted by all sorts of people who want to collect his bounty, but the anime gets much better later on as you discover his history and what truly happened on the planet.

Vash's gentleness and desire to help others is his motto, “love and peace!”. He exemplifies good character, is respectful, but most of all, he understands the weight of his sins and seeks retribution for them. Along for the ride is Wolfwood, a priest with a large machine gun-shaped as a cross.

That doesn't make a lot of sense, but if you watch the anime, you'll see why his character is very impactful. Overall, I recommend this one even though the animation is somewhat dated; you will love this one if you like action, some comedy, and a strong plot.

Clannad

I have not watched this one again for some time, but now (as of this writing) it's on Netflix, I hope to rewatch it. It's a love story about two students who fall in love, friendships, and the hardships of life. What makes Clannad stand out for many fans, myself included, is how deep it hits you.

This show is not afraid to get real with emotions, daily struggles people go through when in a relationship or marriage, and the effects of depression and pain.

It can be a little bleak at times, as the content gets pretty heavy later on in the series. Don't let the beginning fool you, it's lighthearted and seems like a regular slice-of-life or school anime, but it hits your heart later on. I don't want to spoil anything, but let me know what you thought after watching it!

Haibane Renmei

Haibane is an older anime that you might not have heard of. It wasn't very popular, but the story was unique in that it deals with angels. The characters are all angels, dealing with their past in a slice-of-life and drama setting.

It's not a fast-paced, action-packed anime, but it deals with the repercussions of our actions, good or bad. It keeps the mystery of how they arrived where they are, which keeps you entertained. Overall, an excellent anime to watch if you aren't looking for anything heavy.

Violet Evergarden

Wow, this anime (which currently can be watched on Netflix) helped remind me why I love this genre of animation. There's so much bad, dull, or copy-cat animes out there that I was looking for a breath of fresh air, and I found it in Violet Evergarden.

The animation, for me, was excellent, and the story of how Violet becomes an Automemory doll, transcribing letters for clients to express themselves through words. The show delves into the meaning of love, finding peace in pain, and shares the personal stories of various characters in each episode.

It's a spectacular show that I hope you enjoy.

Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World

I have not finished watching this whole series, as I am still going through it. This is a remake of the original, so you can either view the older version or the redone one from 2017. Kino rides a motorcycle (that talks!) through various places and nations, discovering different cultural, political, or other differences in each one.

What makes this anime special is how Kino interacts with the citizens or situations she is put in. It's a very philosophical anime that asks a lot of questions and gives us perspectives that we don't always have an answer for. I think it's good to have questions, and not have all the answers, because it makes us human and knows that we have to rely on God to help us even if we never understand it all.

Rurouni Kenshin

If you have never watched Rurouni Kenshin before, then you will are in for a treat. It's an older anime and looks a little dated, but the story and its main character are the highlights.

Kenshin is a traveling ex-assassin from a war that has ended in old Japan. He decides never to kill again, so he uses his reverse sword (its sharp side isn't used) to stop that causing chaos wherever he goes. His passion and conviction to not kill is an example to die to ourselves when we want to harm others.

It's hard to do, and Kenshin experiences very trying situations that push him to his limits, but you will have to watch the anime to see what happens. I recommend watching the New Kyoto Arc as it skips a lot of filler.

Samurai Champloo

Another older anime but a classic. It also deals with samurai, two of them, who go through various adventures with a young girl who tags along. The music is one of my favorites in a series, the animation is top-notch, as is the action, and it deals with a group of Christians around the end as part of the story.

It is somewhat historical, so you get a taste of what life was like in Japan back in these days, and I highly recommend checking it out.

My Hero Academia

This is a more recent anime that has gained a lot of popularity. It's all about superheroes, which is the perfect time to capitalize on that genre. MHA deals with a young group of students going to school at a hero school called U.A. and goes through their adventures of fighting villains, learning about their powers, and teamwork.

What makes this one stand out for me as a Christian, is its morality and how good overcomes evil. It doesn't make it so black and white every time, so it makes the viewer think if the villain's actions are justified or not.

Overall, it's a fun anime with action, drama, mystery, and quick-moving plots that keep you hooked!

My Last Day

Though it's not an anime series, it's a short video showing the crucifixion of Christ in excellent animation.

I highly recommend it, as it's a powerful display of what it might have looked like to see the Son of God take the cross, be crucified by the Romans, and how He left the grave.

Manga Messiah

Yes, it's a manga, but it's very well done. I am a proponent that if Christians are going to be involved in the creative arts (music, art, writing, etc.), we should do our best.

This series of manga goes from Genesis until I believe revelation, each volume dealing with a different section in the bible. This one deals with the coming of Jesus Christ, His miracles, and preaching the kingdom on Earth, death, and resurrection.

Definitely check it out if you're a manga fan.

Saint Young Men (Japanese: ☆おにいさん, Hepburn: Seinto Oniisan) is a Japanese slice of lifecomedymanga series written and illustrated by Hikaru Nakamura. Its plot involves Jesus Christ and Gautama Buddha, who are living as roommates in an apartment in Tokyo. It has been serialized by Kodansha in the monthly seinenmanga magazineMonthly Morning Two since September 2006, with chapters collected in nineteen tankōbon volumes as of March 2021. A-1 Pictures adapted the manga series into two original animation DVDs (OADs) and an anime film which was released on May 10, 2013. It also inspired a ten-episode live-action web series in 2018.

In Japan, the Saint Young Men manga has sold over 16 million copies. Individual volumes of the series have frequently appeared on lists of the weekly and annual best-seller manga in Japan. It received a Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2009 and was nominated for a Manga Taishō Award in the same year. It was also nominated for Best Comic at the 2012 Angoulême International Comics Festival. Its film adaptation has been well received by the Japanese public.

Overview[edit]

Jesus Christ (イエス・キリスト, Iesu Kirisuto, voiced by Mirai Moriyama in the anime[3]) and Gautama Buddha (ゴータマ・ブッダ, Gōtama Budda, voiced by Gen Hoshino in the anime[3]), the central figures of Christianity and Buddhism respectively, are living together as roommates in an apartment in Tachikawa, part of the suburbs of Tokyo. While taking a vacation on Earth, they attempt to hide their identities and understand modern Japanese society. Each chapter shows their lives during an average day, when they are sightseeing, drinking beer, blogging, or playing video games.[4][5]

While Jesus is portrayed as an impassioned person for his love for all (even for shopping), Buddha tends to be calm and thrifty, and also likes manga.[4][2] The comedy often involves visual gags and puns, as well as jokes in reference to elements of Christianity and Buddhism; for example, Jesus creates wine from water in a public bath and Buddha shines when excited.[4]

Production[edit]

Before writing Saint Young Men, Hikaru Nakamura was working on Arakawa Under the Bridge, which began serialization on December 3, 2004, in the first issue of Square Enix's manga magazine Young Gangan.[6] It attracted the attention of an editor of the magazine Weekly Morning, who wanted Nakamura to publish a series for the magazine.[7] She accepted the offer because of her admiration for Kaiji Kawaguchi's works, such as Zipang and The Silent Service, that were serialized in Weekly Morning.[7] The series' title is derived from a song by Denki Groove and Scha Dara Parr called "Saint Ojisan" (聖☆おじさん, Seinto Ojisan, literally "Saint Old Man").[8] Starting from sketches of two friends wearing casual shirts, she conceived the idea of portraying Jesus and Buddha as average people.[7]

Nakamura envisioned a comedy manga in which the protagonist would be a "very very powerful character", and realized a divine character would fit this premise.[9] She first planned Jesus to be a character in the series, but to make the gags work well, Buddha was added to the series. Their opposing personalities was inspired by Nakamura's sister and her sister's husband; by observing their relationship, she saw some amusing situations.[9] She also saw a resemblance between her version of Buddha and Osamu Tezuka's version.[10]

Despite the religious references in the series, Nakamura stated she used only her personal knowledge and some aspects of modern society, such as yakuza and blogging, which were not intended to be critical but were added because they fit the story.[9] Similarly, secondary characters were only introduced in the series if a chapter needed a new character to introduce a topic. The themes of the chapters were created before the situations and jokes. However, if Nakamura had a specific theme, she created several jokes and then connected them to form a story. When creating a simpler chapter as compared to the more elaborate, thematic ones, she wrote without worrying about creating jokes and situations in advance. With the help of her four assistants, on average she took between ten days and two weeks to make a complete chapter.[9]

Media[edit]

Manga[edit]

Saint Young Men, written and illustrated by Hikaru Nakamura, began its serialization in Kodansha's seinen manga magazine Monthly Morning Two on September 26, 2006.[11] The series was put on hiatus between September 22, 2011, and March 22, 2012, because of Nakamura's pregnancy.[12][13] Its first tankōbon (collected volume) was released by Kodansha on January 23, 2008, and the nineteenth volume was published on May 22, 2020.[14][15] A guidebook was released on April 23, 2013.[16] The manga series has been translated in other languages, including Chinese by Tong Li Publishing,[17] French by Kurokawa,[18] German by Egmont Manga,[19] Italian by J-Pop,[20] and Spanish by Norma Editorial.[21]

In 2010, Jason Thompson reported that Ed Chavez, editor of the American publisher Vertical, contacted the Japanese licensor of the series to request its publishing in North America. The Japanese licensor of the series refused to allow it to be published in North America, because it was thought that Americans might take offense to it.[22] However, in April 2019 Kodansha Comics announced that it acquired the rights to publish the manga digitally.[23] After two volumes were released digitally between April and June 2019,[24][25] the publisher announced in July its plans to publish the manga in print.[26] Nevertheless, a third digital volume was released in October[27] before the first 2-in-1 omnibus hardcover volume was released on December 17, 2019.[28]

Anime[edit]

The production of an anime film was first announced in issue No. 44 of Weekly Morning.[61] Before the film release, a guidebook to the film was published on April 30, 2013.[62] The film was directed by Noriko Takao and written by Rika Nezu. Its characters were designed by Naoyuki Asano and the music was composed by Keiichi Suzuki and Ryomei Shirai.[63] The film was produced by Aniplex, Kodansha and Toho, was animated by A-1 Pictures, and distributed by Toho.[63] It premiered in Japan on May 10, 2013.[3] Its soundtrack was published by Aniplex on May 8, 2013.[64] Later, on October 23, 2013, it was released in DVD and Blu-ray formats.[65] In addition to the film, the same staff produced an original animation DVD (OAD) that was released along with the eighth manga volume.[63] A second OAD was released along with the ninth volume.[66]

In an interview with NHK World, the staff for the anime noted that they wanted to stay loyal to the artwork of the manga while creating the movie.[67] They decided to focus more on the art and character designs, and decided to give it a "sketched" look, instead of the traditional "bold, dark lines" typically used. All the shadows were colored by pencils, sometimes even scribbled to make sure that the "sketched" look came through. Like the manga, the anime film also recreates various attractions of Tachikawa, including the Showa Memorial Park.[67]

Live-action[edit]

In November 2016, a live-actiondrama series adaptation of the manga was announced with no further details.[68] The following month, Yūichi Fukuda was revealed to be the director and screenwriter, while Takayuki Yamada was announced as the producer.[69] Only in February 2018, the main actors were unveiled; Ken'ichi Matsuyama playing Jesus and Shōta Sometani playing Buddha.[70] In April, it was set to debut in the summer of that year on Kakao Japan's streaming service Piccoma TV,[71] but, by June, it changed to fall.[72] Starting on October 12, 2018, the web series received a two-week limited screening in over 40 AEON theaters.[73] It was followed by the premiere on Piccoma TV on October 18;[73] the same day a special screening with staff and cast was also held in Toho Cinemas Roppongi Hills.[74] The first six-minute episode out of ten was also made available through YouTube.[73]

In February 2019, a second and a third season were announced through the Monthly Morning Two magazine.[75] A teaser and a poster for the second season were released in April, when it was also announced that the ten-episode season would stream online on Piccoma TV on June 1 and in theaters starting on June 6.[76][77]NHK General TV rebroadcast the first season between June and July 2019,[78] and planned to show the second season on October 5 and 12, 2019.[79] Only the first half of the second season was broadcast in October because of the Typhoon Hagibis and it had to be rescheduled to January 25, 2020.[80] The ten-episode third season premiered and finished before it on NHK, on January 11 and 18, 2020 respectively.[80]

Reception[edit]

Manga[edit]

Saint Young Men received the 2009 Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize for Short Work Manga.[81] The 2009 edition of Takarajimasha's guidebook Kono Manga ga Sugoi!, which surveys people in the manga and publishing industry, named it the best manga series for male readers.[82] It was nominated for the 2009 Manga Taishō Award[83] and for the category "Best Comic" at the 2012 Angoulême International Comics Festival.[61] As the result of its popularity, issues of Monthly Morning Two started selling out on newsstands; because of this, in May 2009 Kodansha began making the magazine available online the day it is published.[84] It has been among the top 20 of best-selling manga series in Japan in 2009, 2011, and 2013.[85][86][87] All the first eleven individual volumes appeared on lists of the 50 best-selling manga of their respective year in Japan, while the 12th featured in the top 100;[88] volume 15 was also among the top 50 best-selling manga of the year,[89] and volume 16 was the 35th best-selling manga in the first half of 2019.[90] By June 2018, the manga had sold about 16 million copies in Japan.[91] The manga was also displayed at the British Museum in 2011.[67] In 2014, The Daily Dot reported a growing Western fandom that spread various TumblrGIFs of the series.[2]

Comics writer Paul Gravett chose it as one of the best comics of Japan in 2008,[92] while writers Shaenon Garrity and Jason Thompson elected it as one of the most wanted titles for licensing in 2010.[93] In 2014, writing for the newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, German critic Anne Maren Delseit elected it the third best comic book of the year.[94] Japanese manga critic Kaoru Nagayama has noted that the manga is "fun to read" and commended Nakamura for keeping Jesus and Buddha faithful to their real character—of kindness—even when confronted by evil.[67] Carlo Santos from Anime News Network criticized it for its art and questioned its capacity to evolve into something other than "Jesus and Buddha hanging out, while normal people do embarrassing things to them". Santos complained that Jesus' and Buddha's philosophical differences and personalities are not explored. However, Santos praised the series' comedy, noting its simplicity and saying, "its brilliance comes not from purposely trivializing two of the world's great religions, but by highlighting the quirks of the secular world when these famous religious figures are placed in it". According to him, the series does not lose its capacity of making readers laugh as it progresses, unlike other manga.[5] Jolyon Baraka Thomas of The Guardian praised the constancy of "visual gags and puns", and wrote: "Her story is not an introduction to abstruse religious doctrines, nor does it feature much overt commentary on the role of religions in contemporary society."[4]

Film[edit]

The anime film adaptation of Saint Young Men debuted at number nine in Japanese theaters, grossing ¥49,930,836 (US$491,369) on 75 screens.[95] In the subsequent weekends it decreased on its placement from nine to eleven,[96] and then to twelve,[97] closing its run with ¥300 million yen ($1,888,062) grossed.[98][99] Its DVD release ranked seventh on its first week on the list of best-selling anime DVDs in Japan, dropping to twenty-ninth place on its second week on the list.[100][101]
