New series premieres on December 27, continues story from December 13 film

The December issue of Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comics magazine revealed on Friday that a new Yo-kai Watch! anime series will premiere on December 27. The film will be set in the same high school academy setting as Eiga Yo-kai Watch! Jam: Yo-kai Gakuen Y - Neko wa Hero ni Nareru ka (Yo-kai Watch Jam the Movie: Yo-Kai Academy Y - Can a Cat be a Hero?; pictured at right), the sixth film in the series, and will continue the film's story.

The most recent anime series, titled Yo-kai Watch! (with an exclamation mark), premiered on April 5 and is currently airing. The anime brought back Keita (Nate in the English version) as the main character.

Eiga Yo-kai Watch! Jam: Yo-kai Gakuen Y - Neko wa Hero ni Nareru ka will open in Japan on December 13. Pink Lady is performing the film's theme song "Meteo."

The new film's story is set in Y-Academy, an elite school that only allows students with top-class abilities to enter. The protagonist Jinpei Jiba, and his unique friends, take on the mysteries of the school as transforming heroes.

Eiga Yo-kai Watch!: Forever Friends, the franchise's fifth anime film, opened in Japan last December. The film eventually sold 930,000 tickets to earn 1,043,725,500 yen (about US$9,615,164) at the box office in Japan.
