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.
