Synopsis

After thousands of years of hard work, Jesus Christ and Gautama Buddha decide that they have earned a vacation and descend from the heavens to rent a small apartment in Tokyo, Japan. As the pair struggles to live incognito, they enjoy the luxuries of modern society, such as amusement parks, and limited-time store sales. Jesus and Buddha take the time to celebrate each other's holidays, watch the changing of the seasons, and explore their new surroundings.

This Anime Is exactly what it is advertised as, a silly stupid movie about Jesus and Buddha going on a holiday in japan. There really isn't a plot besides the fact that they go on adventures but thats ok. The dialogue is fun and interesting, the side characters while not super flushed out they become part of what makes this movie so fun to watch just because of their reactions to whatever stupid thing Buddha and Jesus are doing. While this movie is not a Masterpiece it was never intended to be one, I advise you watch it and just appreciate it for what ...

Mixed Feelings
After hearing a lot about this anime from random peeps on the internet, I was really looking forward to watching this. I mean, it's about Jesus and Buddha in modern day Japan, so what can go wrong?

Well sadly it didn't meet my expectations of a funny slice of life anime.

Most of the jokes are forced by the over-exaggerated expressions and I can't help but cringe at several scenes for their divine awkwardness. The pacing feels very slow, and you can't help but feel the entire movie is one big filler episode. At about 40 min in, I have an urge to drop the entire ...

Saint Oniisan is simply not a very funny comedy. That's what ultimately matters most, and while there were some good moments, overall, this was a dull and unstructured film.

Jesus and Buddha are vacationing in Japan. That's all that really needs to be said about the plot.

Firstly, there were some good jokes and moments. There are some jokes about Buddha's spot, 'parting the seas,' and the bit with the mafia was genuinely really great. I wish the entire story pivoted around these arcs because they were easily the best jokes. I also found that Jesus and Buddha were mostly likable. The art style is good, though ...
