The staff also revealed that rapper DOTAMA will perform the new anime's theme song "Ore-tacha Yōkai Ningen! ~Ningen Mezashite Nani ga Warui~."
Tokyo MX and BS11 will also rebroadcast the 2006 remake anime but the staff have not yet revealed when.
Ore-tacha Yōkai Ningen stars:
- Tomokazu Sugita as Bem
- Kana Kurashina as Bera
- Kenta Suga as Bero
ADK is credited with the original work, with NAS and DLE as producers. Yuzuru Adachi (Henkei Shōjo shorts) is directing the series of anime shorts at DLE. Kaisei Kishi is in charge of photography and compositing, and Yūki Sudō is in charge of sound effects.
In the original 26-episode anime, Bem, Bera, and Bero are ugly humanoid monsters (yōkai) who fight for justice. The monsters live among humans and protect them from evil yōkai. The three find themselves ostracized from both humans and other yōkai, but the three continue to fight in hopes of one day becoming humans themselves.
A new 26-episode remake series aired in 2006. The anime inspired a 10-episode live-action television series starring KAT-TUN's Kazuya Kamenashi in 2011, and then a live-action film with the same cast in December 2012.
