The One in the Water/Why Did You Say That?/Katie's Secret
- Originally, there were plans to release Yo-kai Watch: The Movie on DVD in the United States, with a Winter 2016 release, as well as a Season 1 DVD release that fall, but they were silently cancelled following a large decline in Yo-kai Watch's marketing.
- NCircle Entertainment picked up the series in late 2018 and, alongside the DVD finally released in early 2019, gradually released the full series' dubbed episodes (and movie) across multiple digital platforms.
- There was originally going to be a DVD release in the United Kingdom featuring the full first season, which would have had dual audio, as Aya Endo, the Japanese voice of Komasan is credited in the product description. It was later confirmed on by Manga UK's official Twitter that it was cancelled, due to licensing issues.
