Keeta can walk into different people’s homes. Fumi has a cute girl’s room. Kanchi’s place looks kind of upscale. Keeta lives at home with his parents and a couple of youkai.

Whisper, the ghost-like creature, is a yokai butler? (That’s what Level-5 says!) Jibanyan is an earthbound soul that’s Keeta’s friend. Old Lady Bakuro stuck with her human face and Kappa is a water-loving youkai.


Youkai Watch is in development for Nintendo 3DS.
