TV Tokyo announced on Friday that Yo-kai Watch ♪, a new series in the Yo-kai Watch television anime, will premiere on April 9 at 6:25 p.m. JST on six stations affiliated with TV Tokyo. New episodes will air on Fridays.
The new show will feature unique and returning Yo-kai. The comedy will also center on the original series' main characters: fifth-grader Keita (Nate in the English version), ghost butler Whisper, and popular Yo-kai like Jibanyan and Komasan. The original cast members for these four characters are returning for this new series.
The previous anime series to feature Keita was titled Yo-kai Watch! (with an exclamation mark), which premiered on April 2019. That anime brought back Keita as the main character.
Yo-kai Gakuen Y ~N to no Sōgū~ (Yo-Kai Academy Y: An Encounter With N), the most recent Yo-kai Watch anime series, premiered in December 2019 with the protagonist Jinpei Jiba on TV Tokyo and its affiliates. The Eiga Yōkai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Gakuen Y - Neko wa Hero ni Nareru ka anime film opened in Japan in December 2019.
