posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for 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?), the sixth film in the Yo-kai Watch franchise, revealed last Friday that dancer Ririri-chan will play Mai Chōno (romanization not official), a cheerleader in Y Academy.
The other new cast members include:
Comedian Ken Watabe of the duo UNJASH as Tabeken, a schoolboy (inspired by Watabe's own stage persona) who commentates on the battles live
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.
Yo-kai Gakuen Y ~N to no Sōgū~ (Yo-Kai Academy Y: An Encounter With N), the new Yo-kai Watch anime series, will continue the film's story in the same academy setting, and will premiere on December 27.
