The comedy manga and anime about Jesus and Buddha living together, Saint Young Men, is getting its own live-action TV series. And now, the series’ staff have revealed a brand new trailer, which takes the first look at this new comedy TV show. But this isn’t any normal preview, as its an interactive 360-degree VR video, which takes viewers into Jesus and Buddha’s Tokyo apartment!

Kenichi Matsuyama (DEATHNOTE) stars as Jesus Christ, while Shouta Sometani (STACY) stars as Buddha. And to give the series even more comedic chops, Yuichi Fukuda (Gintama 2) is directing it. This new comedy series will premiere in Fall 2018.

The comedy manga won plenty of awards, including the 13th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2009. It has also earned much critical acclaim through the years. Its anime adaptation also garnered much praise. Now with this new live-action series, fans are wondering how it will do, as it’s going to live up to such a big reputation.
