Truefax: If you watch this show, two days later, you’ll be questioning its existence. Also, in this universe, it’s the Berenstain Bears. Check your coördinates, folks.

Japanese network Animax announced that they will re-broadcast classic anime series Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai! (Hang in There, Tsuyoshi!) on their network. The series will kick off on Halloween at 20:00 (8:00PM) local time.

Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai is based on Nagamatsu Kiyoshi’s manga of the same name. The series, which ran from Fall 1992 through Christmas day 1994, spanned 112 episodes and a feature film.

Shin Misawa (Initial D, Capeta) directed the project at Studio Comet, with the team of Hiroshi Kanazawa (Captain Tsubasa J, Dragon Quest) and Takahisa Ichikawa (Burn-Up Scramble, Bus Gamer) providing character designs.

This is the first rebroadcast of Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai since its original run. News site According to Japanese news source My Game News Flash, the series has spawned a “Mandela Effect” type of conspiracy theory among online fans, who debate the very existence of the show itself. (Editor’s Note: I’m wagering that these debates are pretty firmly tongue-in-cheek.)

Nagamatsu Kiyoshi’s Tsuyoshi Shikkari Shinasai manga ran in the pages of Kodansha’s Morning magazine in 1987. The series, which ran through 1990, spans 19 collected volumes.
