The Yo-kai Watch! (Japanese: 妖怪ウォッチ! Yōkai Wotchi!) anime is an animated Japanese comedy-action-adventure series, which is the successor to Yo-kai Watch Shadowside while taking place after the events of the original Yo-kai Watch animated series. It made it's nationwide debut on April 5, 2019 in Japan.
The series's plot line takes place before the events of Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: The Return of The Oni King.
All the Yo-kai, such as Whisper and Jibanyan, have the same designs that they had in the original series. Other known Yo-kai will be returning, like Komasan, Komajiro, Kyubi, Venoct, Blizzaria, Shogunyan, and Robonyan F. The series returns back to it's usual running-gags and humor, and is also split into segments. The series will also introduce Yo-kai that didn't appear in the original anime, like Azure Dragon and Casanono.
The series is less of a reboot, and more of a continuation of the original series. Wazzat erased Nate's memories of Yo-kai. Whisper and Jibanyan revive his memories, but due his Yo-kai Watch being sent for maintenance, Whisper gives him the Yo-Kai Watch Elda Model K.
Similar to Shadowside forms, the Yo-kai can take a new form called Onechanside if the user turns the Ark over. Onechanside forms are unpredictable, even the Yo-kai don't know what their Onechanside forms will look like. These forms can help Yo-kai when they have trouble defeating an enemy.
