AH MY BUDDHA, also known in Japan as AMAENAIDE YO!! (あまえないでよっ!!), is based upon the manga by Toshinori Sogabe, which was originally serialized in Comic Gum anthology magazine and later collected into 7 volumes.
This 26-episode television adaptation of AH MY BUDDHA contains both the Season 1, AMAENAIDE YO!!, and Season 2, AMAENAIDE YO!! KATSU!! (あまえないでよっ!! 喝!!). AH MY BUDDHA originally aired in Japan on TV Tokyo’s anime satellite channel, AT-X. The first season aired from July to September 2005 and the second season ran from January to March 2006. The collection features animation by Studio DEEN (FATE/STAY NIGHT, IS THIS A ZOMBIE?), as well as direction by Keitaro Motonaga (JORMUNGAND, YUMERIA).
In AH MY BUDDHA, sixteen-year-old Ikkou Satonaka has raging hormones that make every other boy’s look simply weak in comparison. When he gets turned on, he’s literally turned into a super-powerful Buddhist monk capable of vanquishing the most evil of spirits! Ikkou’s parents send him to the Saienji Temple to train to become a proper monk under the watchful eye of his grandmother. One of his first challenges is to learn to control his lusty desires — but that’s easier said than done when he’s surrounded by a bevy of beautiful nun trainees who keep losing their clothes! Can Ikkou pull himself together, or will his pervy nature win out?
