In the rumor-until-proven mill, there appear to be rumblings of a fall anime for Saint Young Men, the critically acclaimed manga featuring Jesus and Buddha as roommates.  I also read a source claiming that it was a joke.  So…which is it?

I was a bit out of touch this week, so particular thanks to Justin S. and Charles Dunbar for their news tips this week.

  1. SYM is a joke. The official Fall Anime Chart is out and it’s not anywhere on there. Don’t get me wrong, I’d adore it if it was, but…. it’s been a joke two times before. It’s now a running gag for fake anime posters since they know there’s a serious fanbase that would adore it.
