Video game developer Level-5 filed to register the trademark "Yōkai Watch" in the United States on January 17 for video games, animation, and toys.
The story begins when Kēta discovers an old capsule toy vending machine in the forest. Kēta receives a mysterious watch and meets a ghost butler named Whisper. Whisper tells Kēta that the watch allows him to see supernatural creatures — both good and evil — that he could not see before in everyday life. With Whisper and his other companion Jibanyan, Kēta explores his town for other ghosts to battle.
The anime premiered on January 8.
