I'm happy for this one, I wanted to read manga soon ;) It's a shame it didn't get a TV series though.

I wonder who will do it?

If it was a TV series I'd expect SHAFT to do it, but who knows about a movie. SHAFT is pretty busy so I guess they're out of the picture.

i hope that it'll be shaft, but don't think so, or it'll come out like in 4 years from now.

I could picture it as an OVA/OAD series like DMC, but a full length movie of pure randomness? Makes me wonder...

Also, Catholic countries are so gonna ban this movie; not that it has what it takes to become an international hit, imo. XD
HAPPY SCANS!

Waaht? I didn't expect that to happen. I was thinking this series will get a 5 minute per ep series at most like all other comedy of this type.

I really wish Thermae Romae would've gotten a better anime, not just cardboard cutouts talking

also shocked, what is that in your signature?

I still cannot believe this. It's fantastic <3

Wonder how a movie will work, though. Sounds rather odd.

And also, A-1 Pictures. Dammit.
I have my own anime blog. It's called Anime Viking. Hope you'll you read it!

I'm a little bit disappointed

I heard of it but sadly it goes against a lot of my beliefs so it's a fat NO for me on this series.

I personally like the manga, but I didn't expect it to be animated since it could offend a lot of people. Either way, I'm looking forward to this

What "Adolescence" do you have?
Do you remember "Childhood"?
The irreplaceable one existed there.

What if Jesus and Buddha were living on Earth in modern times? What if they shared an apartment in Japan? Saint Young Men is a humorous manga about the daily lives of Jesus and Buddha

WUT.I might watch it...

not.

According to Sankaku Complex, there should be a OAD episode bundled with volume 8 of the manga as well.
