Prior to the release of “Yokai Nigen Bem” which stars KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya this December, Kamenashi together with Fuku Suzuki and Anne, have been illustrated for “SD” or Super Deformation by yukky. yukky has been known for his works in “Aisatsu no Mahou” and “popopopon” who said it was an honor to draw supernatural creatures of the movie.
“It was lovely,” yukky said after the illustrations was unveiled. He said that he deformed the characters while retaining the delicate features of each of them, such as the sexiness of Bemu, the anger in Bela, and the cuteness of Belo. Despite the scary illustrations, yukky was able to expressed the feelings of sorrow and sadness with each character illustration.
Hidehiro Kono, Yokai Ningen Bem producer, was the one who commissioned yukky to draw the characters. Kamenashi reportedly “laughed so hard until his eyes becomes misty with tears” and asks, “are my eyes really shiny like this?” upon seeing his SD counterpart.
“Yokai Ningen Bem” will hit the theaters on Dec. 15th.
