It has been announced that the second anime film of a planned trilogy to adapt Tezuka Osamu's famous manga "Buddha" about Buddha's life will premiere in theaters in Japan on February 8, 2014. The title of the film is "Buddha 2: Tezuka Osamu no Buddha: Owarinaki Tabi" (Buddah 2: Tezuka Osamu's Buddha: The Unending Journey). Yoshioka Hidetaka and Mizuki Nana will repeat their roles as Siddhartha and Migaila. However, Tatta, now grown up, will be voiced by Matsuyama Kenichi in this film. Veteran actress Yoshinaga Sayuri will voice the role of Maya, mother of Buddha. The first film "Tezuka Osamu no Buddha: Akai Sabaku yo! Utsukushiku" was released to theaters in May 2011.

Buddha 2: Tezuka Osamu no Buddha: Owarinaki Tabi on MAL
Modified by Naruleach, Nov 18, 2013 12:40 AM
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

looks good, solid animation.. haven't read the manga but a story centered around buddha's life sure sounds interesting.

I'm actually interested more in the manga right now actually. However, I might also give this a shot, maybe.

I actually heard that the movie was pretty bad, but I'll watch it regardless. Hopefully it can prove to be entertaining either way.

Will definitely look forward to this! I hope one day there will be a legit "Journey to the West" anime too.

Meh, the first movie was mediocre at best.

A amazing story in a different context of imagery, I will gladly take a look at this one.

As someone who bought the entire set from vertical I'll offer that the manga is fantastic and anyone should read it if they are looking for something mature that will make them think a little bit about life and the meaning of everything. It's one of the few times I'd consider using the label masterpiece for something.

Do you remember how many animations about Buddha you have watched and where are they from? Since I cannot recall a lot of animations about Buddha so I am curious.

I really think it's good and I want to learn a little bit about life and the meaning of everything just like you said but I'm not very fond of reading manga If I were to read a manga it would be comedy but maybe I'll try it someday ;)

Don't read this then as while it has moments of comic relief it's also a challenging read that tackles a lot of philisophical ideas. It depicts the best of humanities graces but also the worst of its atrocities in a pretty epic tale spanning the era of foretelling the coming of the Buddha through to his death and how he effects the lives of those he comes across as well as the story of his own enlightenment.

One thing I also love is how Tezuka plays with the very nature of the manga format and the layout of framing and the pages themselves that also affect the tone and particular emotion of a segment. I really can't think of another manga author that has thought to do this sort of thing let alone as well but then thats why they call him the god of manga.

It's from Tezuka, so it's instantly worth it, yet everyone will prefer the likes of Fairy Tail over it (I'm talking about the manga). What a sad community.

Sorry, I can't remember. Don't know where they're from but they speak Mandarin.
