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.

I'm just going to start this review with: I legitimately feel that watching this film has expanded my understanding of my own faith and I encourage others to watch it if they are looking for the same sort of spiritual experience that I had.

This anime shows a very candid look at how people of different faiths can come together and treat each other well without conflict in these turbulent modern times, and will likewise instill good morals upon the viewer regardless of their own religion.

Mixed Feelings
This show is very hard to watch. The main characters, Jesus and Buddha, simply act like 12-year old immature girls. Even worse than that. And I really mean it.

I actually felt like giving this movie a chance, thinking it would get better over time. But, after 40 minutes, I couldn't watch it anymore. There is almost none story progression. Just a cliched ...

First of all, for a film that uses such a controversial hook, I must state my inevitable bias, and that is I am a Christian who is somewhat knowledgeable (I dare not proclaim myself an expert) about my own faith with a bit of understanding of Buddhism and its teachings. Therefore, before you get heated and declare me unhelpful, know where I stand in relation to you on this subject, thus if you are not a person of faith and have no real interest in hearing what I might have to say, then just do us both a favor and skip my review. With ...
