The first episode of the Yo-kai Watch animated series was broadcasted in Japan on January 8, 2014, which was more than six months after the video game was released. It wouldn't be dubbed into English until it was aired in the United States on October 5, 2015, to coincide with the manga, video game and merchandise.
The episode focuses on Nate meeting Whisper at Mt. Wildwood after he gets unsealed from a mysterious capsule machine. To thank him, Whisper gives Nate a Yo-kai Watch, which would allow him to see Yo-kai behind regular daily occurances. Later on, he meets Jibanyan, who is determined to impress his former owner after he became a Yo-kai.
The whole premise of this episode is loosely based on the first chapter of the Yo-kai Watch video game, and serves as the overall pilot to the entire franchise.
