New drama also launches original goods for fans
Our prayers have been answered: we get to watch the first episode of Saint Young Men!
Picoma made the decision to make the first episode available free globally on YouTube. The short episode, titled "Buddha's Holiday," currently features no subtitles, but should be viewable in most (if not all) regions regardless.
Additionally, a new line of Saint Young Men merchandise is rolling out in Japan, featuring images of the actors from the live drama. Shirts, stickers, and an acrylic keyring diorama are among the goods on offer.
Saint Young Men airs in Japan on Picoma TV. At present, there have been no announcements concerning licensing in the US.
