Classic anime Yokai Ningen Bem, which first debuted in 1968, is getting a new anime series this year. It’s called BEM and features new character designs. New, but not necessarily better!

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

The new one sure as hell looks modern (headphones?). but all the others at least have some similarities. If I would choose...I like the 1982 version. Keep in mind I’m old ha!
