Dentsu Entertainment USA and LEVEL-5 Inc. streamed the English opening sequence for its Yo-Kai Watch anime last month. Many viewers were surprised to see the localized version mirrored the Japanese opening theme. Now the official Yo-Kai English YouTube channel is streaming the exercise video from the same show and its retained the Japanese tune (and some of the lyrics).
The original song is performed by J-pop group Dream5. The story of the games and first anime season begin when Keita discovers an old capsule toy vending machine in the forest. Keita receives a mysterious watch and meets a ghost named Whisper. Whisper tells Keita 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 the feline companion Jibanyan, Keita explores his town for other ghosts to battle or befriend.
The English dub of the anime will premiere on the American television channel Disney XD on October 5 at 5:00 p.m. ET/PT. New episodes will first run every day until October 9, and then the series will run every week on Mondays at 5:00 p.m. Each episode will also be available on the WATCH Disney XD streaming service one day after its television premiere.
