An official website launched and announced a new Youkai Ningen Bem series. Titled Bem, the anime is slated for this year.
Three monsters, Bem, who looks like a gangster, Bero, who looks like a boy, and Bera, a witch, act as agents of justice, hoping that they will be allowed to become human. Several episodes involve them protecting a young boy. The style of animation is fairly distinctive, and the storylines not without interest. (Source: AniDB)

Terrible looking staff, but who knows. There's always a chance that a series could mark that studio's time to shine. I'll watch the first episode or two and see what I think, but I'm not gonna say I'm exactly looking forward to it, lol.

VyseLegendaire said:Because the source doesn't mention about "revival", just "brand new" anime.
So it's a revival of a 1960s series. Wouldn't know that from reading this article.
