Catch the hottest new Japanese animation exclusively on Toonami, the Philippines’ ultimate home for anime and superhero series. YO-KAI WATCH follows the adventures of a boy named Keita Amano. He discovers a peculiar capsule machine next to a sacred tree in Sakura New Town. When he opens the capsule, it brings forth a Yo-Kai (ghost) named Whisper, who gives Keita a Yo-Kai watch. Using this, Keita is able to identify and uncover many different Yo-Kais.
Joined by a cat called Yo-Kai Jibanyan, Keita and Whisper start making friends with all sorts of Yo-Kai which can be summoned to battle against evil Yo-Kai that are causing trouble. Will the gang triumph against the evil Yo-Kai? Or will they stand helpless against their onslaught?
These supernatural adventures have taken over Japan since the release of the original game in 2013, which was followed by the sequels: YO-KAI WATCH 2: Ganso and Honke and YO-KAI WATCH 2: Shinuchi. Two manga adaptations have also been produced: a shōnen manga series and a shōjo manga series.
