    Well it seem that they are ending the Shadowside series, in favor of the revival of the new series that will pick up where Episode 214 had left off. And it is a shame for the Shadowside sereis, but at least Nate is coming back with the new Elda watch. But will they revive the shadowside saga or not? Do you feel sad that the Shadowside sereis is ending?

      I dunno XD He probably doesn't know what she looks like, so he probably won't be able to think of her.. At best, he'll just be picturing very blurred/shadowy images of her. I do hope we get to see what she looks like soon, and not like.. Near the final 2 eps.. Cause, we kind of deserve to see what she looks like, with all that Level 5 has done.. Killing off Douketsu and literally ending Shadowside for the OG without any warning at all.. (At least the Shadowside movie's end cut scene gave the JP fans a hint XD

      No lol XD I meant, they hinted Shadowside was going to be continued. They gave us a hint that Shadowside was going to be continuing by setting up some minor things, like the detective agency and Shutendoji.. But nope, the OG just came literally out of nowhere, no warnings, no hints, just poof.



      But yeah, from what we can see of Shuka.. I feel like her design is going to be a total clustered mess... But in a... KIND of good way XD I just hope she ditches the big dress.. Cause from what I can see of it, it's just ugly XD

      Most Anime have lack luster finales anyways so I wouldn't see how this is different but I understand considering they have 3 timelines and the Anime would follow a similar path (I hope)

    • That's true but I kind of want to see old Jibanyan in action again. In episode 11 of Shadowside he made a dubut but he didn't fight any trucks. Komasan was my favorite Yokai and I can't wait to see him. (For some reason he was eating a piece of onigiri, not icecream in his ark.)

      I think hints can be found in the teaser, trailers and demos for YW4... so it turns out Nate wearing what appeared the Yo-kai Watch Elda wasn't a coincidence.

      Like Dragon Ball Z or Chuunibyo

      Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood has a high-note and superb ending, as well. Since both it and Dragon Ball Z ended with their manga endings adapted into anime, both are exceptions.

      Most manga-based anime don't adapt all their arcs (including the final ones), or have rushed endings very different from the source material. Too many cases to cite here.

      Nope. Like Nate never possessed the Yo-kai watch, if he is an orphan, or something.

      To note, four episodes were written by Hino himself (25, 47, 77 & 88), and the former two and ep 98 foreshadowed the first two movies. With no major plots after all of this, it's clear there was no proper sustain.

      Well, thanks for answering me, Axl-fox. I wonder why a lot of people in the Yo-kai Watch amino think it is, and Wikipedia states so while citing ryokuta's blog entry as proof (I started to doubt their crediblity as an informant).

      The other reason I asked, is, granted, Jibanyan and Whisper's backstories (in both episodes written by Hino). The concept of reboot means "discarding the entire continuity of a series to start anew". So it'd be self-damaging to take down both Yo-kai's backstories with it.

      It'll be over 9000! XD In actuality I expect 1800 though I may be asking for too much lol, since there was over 600 in the 3rd game and it'll probably give the same amount plus more to the other two worlds :)

      - slowly puts hands on face- fam you're reading that wrong, you're supposed to read those 3 colored lines up to down, not left to right. The whole text says "copilation of Shadowside and Busters 2 comics, over 90 sets of hilarous 4koma strips!" or something

      The "90" refers to the number of comic strips in the book, and the "2" refers to Yo-kai watch busters 2, so there you have it, dont try to claim stuff as facts when you cant even read basic japanese.

    • Shadowside introduced around 40, and if we do at least 1 recolor of them, that's around 80..

      But I doubt they'll stop there... They'll probably do upgrades and more recolors... So we're looking at around 100 Shadowside Yokai

      Shin's world is a bit harder... I believe they'd have at least 50 Forever Friends specific yokai, with some OG and Shadowside yokai running around.

      So I believe we're going to have around 800-1000 Yokai...

    • Im don't know, I was hoping they could actually cut down the numbers a bit because over 1000 yokai already sounds a bit excessive.

    • I feel like since yokai watch 4 is a really big project and is a hyped up game that 800-900 don’t seem like as good of numbers. I would say 1000-1200 seem best because of how huge the worlds are. Do your really want to explore these worlds and online have 50 yokai to collect in one or 100 to collect in the other while the og has 700. It doesn’t seem right at all.

      No as in, Shadowside has like 100 shadowside specific Yo-kai in their world, mixed with a ton of OG Yokai that'll appear in their world and the Forever Friends world

      And like.. 50 specific Forever Friends that only appear in the Forever Friends world, but it has a ton of OG and Shadowside Yokai that CAN appear in their world as well



      And so on and so on

      In concept, having to collect over 1000 mons sounds cool but in practice Im pretty sure it would tire people out extremely fast, specially with the bad befriending RNG rate and the fact L5 has also gotten a bad habit of locking certain yokai behind paywalls in the shape of toys (least we forget how they handled the Lucky Gods in the jp version of YW3 and the Deva Enmas in YWB2)

      Speak for yourself, the idea of having yokai based on american stereotypes rather than actual american myth doesn't appeal to me in the slightest, I find their designs to be kinda boring too.

      The thing is, one who takes their time to trace every classic monster or cryptid's origins will find out that only a handful of them appear in American lore... Witches, Werewolves and Frankenstein's monster have clear European roots -and so is Halloween-, so being dubbed Western Yokai in Kitaro is much more fitting than Merican Yo-kai in Yo-kai Watch. Also, Loch Ness is in Scotland (UK) so...

      Well, to clarify: only 223 out of the 245 Yo-kai in YW1 were befriendable, and only 440 out of the 448 Yo-kai in YW2 were befriendable, as the rest in both games were bosses and the number system was similar. Since YW3 numbers bosses with B-0XX, you know there are 648 befriendable Yo-kai in that game. If it is that Yo-kai from YW:B2 (because Yo-kai from the first Blasters game were added to YW3) are to be added, the number sits above 750.

      To be realistic on numbers for YW4, we need to take into account factors such as memory, play time, RNG, and whether or not we'll need toys to get all Yo-kai. My bet is on around 800-900

      If it premiered just one week later after the OG wrapped up rather than two, then surely.

      Steeltron, remember, it's "had" instead of "halved" (and before you ask, it's not grammar, but vocabulary).

    • I still remember when this series was announced how many people were disappointed or scared about the outcome of something darker and the whole Shadowside thing. I'm not talking about here of course, I mean anywhere on internet. 



      And now... what can I say? Who wanted the old Yokai watch may now won. But was it worth it?

      I always had good hopes for this series and I'm etremely satisfied for what they did. This has been one of the best things I ever saw into Yokai Watch. The perfect mix of comedy, serious plot and much more. I loved to see these characters all together, work together like this and see their interactions. Far more than just Nate. I like to see humor which wasn't only based on strange faces and some plot. 

      But now, I'm left happy yes... but also empty. Because of how much more could have been done with this series if they decided to go on and do a second season, which we might have in future.

      I found their ideas great, starting off with kids and then developing it to teens and adults but keeping also kids to follow it. Why did they decide to screw this off? It seems like Pokémon and Yokai Watch battle one against the other to decide who ruins better their own series after good glimpses (Like Pokémon used SM to ruin the good work done with XYZ, so now Yokai Watch do the same) And of course I'm not saying Yokai Watch is ruined, but they wasted indeed a good chance. And both seems to be rivals with each other. Yokai Watch started from kids so Pokémon do SM to come back to kids, but meanwhile Shadowside is aired and maybe next Pokémon series will be more mature... while Yokai Watch MAYBE seeing SM decided to come back again to kids... What's next?

      We still have many questions without answers and while I still have a little bit of hope that the new series will link the old Yokai Watch to Shadowside... the trailer and the plot make me so disappointed. 

      Yokai Watch Shadowside was a success as the reviews says and the authors self said. The answer is the same... why?

      But... this aside... I will look out of course for Shadowside manga, maybe there will be some aswers. 

      Still Shadowside left a big and good impact to me, it wa a good work and I am glad for this journey with such good characters. We could have seen more, make it even more good, but not always can be good. The final episode was a proof of the great potential of this series. 

      Thanks Shadowside!

      Thanks Shadowside! 

      If by XYZ doing "good work" you mean Serena's characterization being entirely dependent of Ash, and for the sixth time Ash never winning a League (even though he should have)... you have a bit odd standards.

      And as I pointed out (yeah, for the nth time, even I'm getting weary, honestly), with the whole Shuka and Soranaki plot wrapping up (and Shutendoji achieving his set goal, in a way, so he'd bother the heroes anymore for now), it'd be though to equal or surpass that in the short term, lest with a completely unplanned arc. Besides, Nate wearing a Yo-kai Watch Elda model in the new series was made to match him doing so in YW4.

      But I agree in your main idea on Shadowside; it was not extremely darker (because overly darker entries normally signal that the writters are running out of ideas), or neither gorier nor grittier. Even with the plot and the more serious tone, it had the signature humour and the Yo-kai did their stuff accordingly (though I wanted to see where were Yo-kai such as Dismarelda, Happierre, Walkappa, Tattletell, and several others then, at least). Plus the main human cast was pretty relatable. And yes, the two main mysteries regarding the lore on Shadowside still remain: the exact circumstances on Nate parting ways with Yo-kai, and the advent of Lightside and Shadowside forms, which hopefully will be solved sometime in the future.

      Definitely the Genjuu, the Yo-kai Watch Animas and the Yo-kai Watch Ogre, as well as Nate and the forms are concepts which could (and should) be explored in the near future. For now, as Shuka and Soranaki were set in the latest two movies and tied on, we can only hope the same happens to the former.

    • I think because it’s not ending but is more on a break. It could be the end of season one. I mean how long can the reboot series last? I believe by a year we will get Shadowside 2. If it was truly ending they wouldn’t give Shadowside a chance to have new yokai and such in yokai watch 4. To me it’s strange with so much stuff not answered and to me the people who attacked kuuten could be the unknown tribe.

      I could answer easily to this and explain why my "odd standars" have a reason and why what you are saying totally doesn't make sense. Just analizing it a bit more could show you what I mean and would help you see that there are far more meanings behind what you quoted as bad details.

      But this is not the place to do it since we are on a Yokai Watch Wiki, so let's just drop it, if you think like then making you see my point is worthless because you wouldn't understand it. No offense of course.

      .

      .

      .

      Back to the Yokai Watch! I hope that there is some kind of hope for this. Being a prequel of Shadowside could give some answers to the questions we have left.  But for now the premiere isn't so good, or at least in my opinion. I still hope for Shadowside to have a new season in future. It would be odd for them to end their best series as ratings to come back to the one that had less.

    • I found that two of the 49 episodes were written by Akihiro Himo himself: SS001 (Bourei Banchou), and SS005 (Mannequin in Love) 1. As the four OG anime episodes which were written by him as well (25, 47, 77, and 88)23 were renditioned in the games -while events like Nate getting the Yo-kai Watch U, the Yo-kai Watch Dream, and the Yo-kai Blaster in the anime (78, 130, and 143) played different in the games-, I expect those two Shadowside episodes to be as well (as the battle with Jingeki was present in the demo and is to be in the final game).

      That said, one has to wonder how will events like Touma's kidnapping, the battle with Jorogumo, Natsume's reveal as Shuka, and the final battle with Soranaki woud be renditioned (if ever), as none were written by Hino.

      Well... Kitaro and Medama-oyaji do appear in the game, but only cameoing in a quest in Natsume's world.

      Also, do you realize there are more Yo-kai based on either mysteries (Shadowside), Classic (FF), and the usual you see in Nate's world? Even taking into account some 'merican Yo-kai are indeed in this game, there's literally no room to cram another mythologies, but maybe I'm wrong.

      I would think a werewolf Yo-kai could be a Humanoid type of Yo-kai in Lightside form and a more wofl like Yo-kai in Shadowside form (since that's what a werewolf is) and maybe could even be part human part Yo-kai (similar to Nezumi Otoko from Gegege no Kitaro)

    • Another 'merican Yokai I wouldn't mind seeing is one based off of the urban legend of alligators living in sewers.

      We have something similar, an alligator yo-kai called Ottamagator.

      This. OMGator (in both of his names) was a pun on extreme shock, plus his attire as a wild hunter.

      To be honest, I was expecting 'merican Yokai to be based off of the urban legends of America like the Mothman, Bigfoot, Beast of Brady Road, Jersey Devil and the like, not caricatures of American culture.

      Well, you put it nicely. In fact, monster "facts" such as Werevolves being weak to silver or the Frankenstein monster being created through the use of lighting are all stuff added by Universal movies. None of the original European account has any of these "myths about monster myths".

      The same thing can be said about the vampire. Hell, I think vampires have more weaknesses than werewolves! They die in sunlight, they die when exposed to religious items, they can't cross running water, they have to return to their coffin that's filled with their native soil, THEY CAN'T COME INTO YOUR HOUSE UNLESS THEY'RE INVITED!!! And get this: they also can't touch silver, either! What, did the werewolf weakness pass onto them as well?!

      I always saw him as a caricature of Steve Irwin and the stereotype of Australians being wild and wreckless adventure seekers.

      Yep... all you said is right, but that's not the point of this issue. As I said before, those are more fitting being dubbed Western Yo-kai in Kitaro than 'Merican Yo-kai there. Also most 'Merican Yo-kai are similar to normal Yo-kai in the sense that they effect people and their surroundings through Inspiriting.

    • I can't remember, is there a Yo-kai that makes the people it possesses nerdy? Like a stereotypical otaku?
