Arashi no Yoru ni (Stormy Night) and Saint Oniisan (Saint Young Men) are good recommendations for each other. While both anime focus on different aspects of friendship, they both are about friendships.

Stormy night, it's about a goat an a wolf that become friends, and how they react to different situations where they shouldn't stick with each other. They also keep this a secret, and try to hide it from others.

Saint Onnisan, it's about a friendship of Jesus and Buddha, they want to spend time together, and have a relaxing time. They also want to keep their identities a secret.

Saint Onnisan was sent to me from a friend, and was worth watching. I thought of a Stormy night as a good recommendation, as it didn't have any.

The Laws of the Sun

The Laws of the Sun

Many eons ago, an alien named El Cantare and several other God-like beings arrived in our solar system and populated the planet Venus, creating the human race. Global warming forced the humans to emigrate to Earth, where the aliens assisted them in building advanced civilizations. When a corrupt king named Satan falls to Hell and begins leading souls astray, El Cantare descends to Earth and is reincarnated many times to guide people to the path of light. Reincarnated alongside him are a group of people who repeatedly witness his wisdom and miracles as he introduces religion to the lost continents of Mu and Atlantis, saves people from an alien cult in the ancient Incan Empire, and finally brings enlightenment to ancient India as Shakyamuni Buddha.

Both movies are interfaith cocktails mixing elements from various religions. The Laws of the Sun is a religious sci-fi flick while Saint Young Men is a comedy.

Long before superheroes, there were legends. One of them begins with Shaka Nyorai, whose bravery and enlightenment once saved humanity forever. But forever is fleeting because Mara, the personification of Earthly desires, forges a corrupt coalition with the devil to again visit wrath and vengeance upon humankind. To counter Mara's cruel attack, Taishakuten and Bonten, divine beings, must join forces with the Thirteen Buddhas. Can the allied powers of light defeat the vicious onslaught and save humankind in their darkest hour?

Ya Boy Kongming!

Ya Boy Kongming!

General of the Three Kingdoms, Kongming had struggled his whole life, facing countless battles that made him into the accomplished strategist he was. So on his deathbed, he wished only to be reborn into a peaceful world... and was sent straight to modern-day party-central, Tokyo! Can even a brilliant strategist like Kongming adapt to the wild beats and even wilder party people?!
