*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

In this answer to the question “What if Jesus and Buddha went on vacation” we have a thoroughly enjoyable and hilarious set of stories about these two powerhouses of the heavens living a normal(ish) life in Japan. If you’re not into ‘slice of life’ stories, this will bore you but I found it endearing and fun! Both religions are treated with respect and the translation notes are exceedingly helpful for some of the side humor. It wanders a little but that comes with slice of life stories. I had a lot of fun reading this volume but it’s hard to see where this would keep going for multiple volumes without getting repetitive. 4.8 out of 5.
