Youkai Watch is the next big franchise that Level 5 are hedging their bets on, and looking to expand into various forms of media other than games. Today, the publisher announced their plan for the upcoming anime and manga series based on the game.


The Youkai Watch anime will debut in Japan in January 2014. Prior to that, a manga series will begin serializing in Shogakukan’s Ciao magazine in December.

    The art direction and that music makes this game SO appealing!

    Hoping for a overseas release!

    Maybe will watch this. Gyrozetter anime was worth while and one of my favorite, so seeing another kids game series receive anime treatment will be nice. Unfortunately, accessing the episodes may be a bit on the difficult side I guess.

    Hopefully lead character has some trademark statement thing.

    • This is actually a Level-5 series, just like Inazuma Eleven and Danball Senki.

  • Just can’t wait for this! Level-5 anime (,haven’t seen Danball yet,) haven’t let me down.

    Hopefully this, Fantasy Life and Inazuma Eleven to come over.

    I hope they keep the CGI low this time. Kids’ anime are the most affected by conspicuous CGI o.x

    How many games does this publisher release…I cant keep up

    • 3PointDecoupage

      Not enough.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    They can start by localizing the game in N.America.

  • anthony apduhan

    and the Gaist Crusher anime airs when???

  • Tonton Ramos

    I’m gonna have a bad feeling about this, if this airs the same time as Inazuma Eleven(if Galaxy ends…)

  • Steven Higgins

    I can’t help but feel that having an Amine will reduce the chances of the game being localized. Let’s hope it get’s the same treatment that Pokemon got when it started out.
