Hikaru Nakamura ‘s Saint Young Men manga imagines Jesus and Buddha as apartment dwelling guys in Tachikawa, Tokyo.
Can you imagine Buddha’s life as a Japanese high school girl?
Nara Shika Tanashi follows a Buddha-faced girl named Shanako and her friend, a deer named Shikao.
Nara Park is well known for its population of Sika deer and multiple shrines and temples.
The manga is serialized in Hakusensha ‘s Hana to Yume magazine.
Hakusensha published the first volume on Friday and released a promotional video starring Yuuki Ono as both Shanako and Shikao.
The closest train station to Nara Park is also participating in a collaboration with the Nara Shika Tanashi manga.
The Kintetsu Nara station will feature posters for the manga starting on July 30.
Bookstores in Nara prefecture will have posters for the manga on site.
