Yokai Ningen Bem in TV Bros.
In celebration of the Yokai Ningen Bem box set release, Bem, Bela and Bero were featured pounding rice cakes on the cover of the January 8th edition of TV Bros.
Also included inside the magazine was a short interview with series head writer Akira Adachi (who also worked on Testujin 28!). Among the topics discussed are how he got the idea for the show after watching the kamishibai performance of Akame no Gu, the origin of Bem's name (Bug Eyed Monster), how in hindsight he wishes he would have named the show after Bero instead and that he originally intended for the show to have a happy ending.
