Lucky Penny Entertainment has set the release date for a welcome license rescue with June 3rd, 2014 being the day you’ll get their version of Ah My Buddha!!. The series is coming out with the full twenty-six episode run that will be priced at $34.99. The bilingual release will be DVD only but it will include the clean versions of the opening and closing sequences as well as promotional videos.
The show was originally broadcast in Japan in 2005 and 2006 and was released by Media Blasters in 2009 before going for a full collection in 2010, which is the last it was out. The series came from them at a time when they were producing fewer dubs but this one managed to get one, to good effect at that. Its original name in Japan is Amaenaide yo!!.
Plot concept: 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?
