Ok, so pretty much everyone here knows or even heard of Hataraku Maou-sama right? The one where the Demon Lord is transported the the human world and forced to live among the society of humans. Well, Saint☆Onii-san is pretty similar to HM, only that instead of a demon lord, we've got religious icons living their daily lives in the human world (disguising as ordinary citizens as part of their two-month vacation from their holy duty), and those figures are Jesus and Buddha.

Yes, you've heard right. That Jesus. And that Buddha.

Kinda sounds like a scene coming from the song One of Us by Joan Osborne if read more

Honestly, this is one of the best movies to watch when you're feeling down. It's so light and cute and carefree, the sounds are calm and nice and the visuals are light and clear, the artstyle is very aestethically pleasing and overall- it's a great one.
The story is about Jesus and Buddha deciding to go on a vacation to Japan and their daily little adventures. It's hilarious and very cute at times.
Loved it, I highly recommend watching this.

I'm not really a religious person but this show is hilarious!
It's just like any normal slice of life but with a more lighter plot.
Highly recommended for those who are christian or buddhist so they can understand the reference more xD

Well, as is obvious from the synopsis, this show is about Buddha and Jesus Christ holidaying on Earth.Most of the jokes have to do with miracles ascribed to either Jesus or Buddha reproduced in a modern setting.More often than not, they are very short and you have to be acquainted with some religious stories to fully enjoy them.The bromance between Jesus and Buddha is awesome, seriously.

Only extreme fanatical believers will be offended by this show as its is not judgmental on any religion in any way, nor does it poke fun at it.

With that out of the way, i felt that the show was too read more
