Level-5 announced a new anime for Yo-Kai Watch series, Yo-Kai Watch Shadowside! This YoKai Watch Shadowside anime will start airing on April. The anime is a sequel to the movie Yo-Kai Watch Shadowside: The Return of the Oni King, a crossover film with the GeGeGe no Kitaro series.
Since the third game, Keita‘s (or Nathan, in the English version) duty to seal Yo-kai away has completed, and he’s grown up, rendering him to be unable to see Yo-kai anymore. 30 years later, the setting of this anime, Yo-kai is acting up again! Keita’s daughter, Natsume Amano, is chosen as one of the successors to the Yo-kai watch as our new main protagonist! Natsume must work with other people who also obtained the new Yo-Kai Watches to restore the bond between humans and Yo-kai.
