Catholics all over the world are currently commemorating the passion and death of Jesus Christ, so while they’re at it, let’s release some Jesus-related news, shall we? Then we’ll mix it up with a little Buddhism on the side, and we’ll get…

…Some Saint Young Men news! The official website of the manga series’ live-action adaptation has released a new teaser trailer for the show’s second season. The trailer shows our two main characters, Jesus Christ and Gautama Buddha, roaming in what appears to be the streets of Akihabara and just having a good time in the holy land of otaku. Check it out below:

The video also reveals that the second season is set to premiere on June 1. Besides the teaser trailer, a new promotional poster was also revealed for the second season.

As with Saint Young Men’s first season, the second season will be streamed online on Kakao Japan’s streaming service Piccoma TV. Theater screenings are also set for the second season, which will start on June 6. Main cast members Ken’ichi Matsuyama (Jesus Christ) and Shota Sometani (Buddha) are set to reprise their roles, with Yuichi Fukuda still directing the series and penning the script.

Saint Young Men is written and illustrated by Hikaru Nakamura, and is serialized by Kodansha in the seinen magazine Morning 2. A-1 Pictures adapted it into two original animation DVDs and an animated film which premiered on May 2013. Nakamura’s slice of life comedy imagines Jesus Christ and Buddha, founders of two of the biggest world religions, as roommates. The series imagines how these two major religious figures would react to modern society in Japan, and shows their daily life in their small apartment in Tokyo.
