Bem, Bella and Belo need to fight a modified human to stop him killing young women. Sonia begins to realise that Bem and his friends may not be evil.
BEM (episode 4) has been delayed until later this month because of the Kyoto Arson attack in Japan. The official website of BEM says that the episode content needs to change following the tragedy.
This episode concentrated on the character Belo. It was about how difficult it is to make friends when you are a high functioning demon. This was a great episode, but I’m hoping that we can get into some proper stories next week rather than character introductions.
The direction of the show was great and the development of the lead character was wonderful. I have such a crush on Bela, who I am positive is the older sister of Cat Girl from Gegege no Kitaro! The story was really good and the shock of a supernatural villain bringing us down to earth from a teenage high school drama was terrific! Lots of fun!
This is a showcase anime. It’s a little like Gegege no Kitaro in that it’s 50 years old and has been done a few times, it’s therefore highly respected as a story and also an important part of Japanese Anime culture. There were never going to produce a cheap and nasty version of Bem and I gotta say, it definitely lives up to the hype!
