The Youkai Watch anime now lacks an English subbing group for it. This is a shame as the anime is funny to watch and is currently one of the top ten children anime in Japan's Kanto region. I hope this review may be able to help change things as clearly a number of people (including myself) enjoy it. I plan to watch on and probably pick up the Japanese language at the same time, even if it will take ages for a group to pick this up again.

Youkai is a term for Japanese spirits, ghosts and monsters. A "Youki-pedia" series, this anime depend a lot read more

Youkai Watch and Natsume Yuujinchou are similar in that both the protagonists befriend and are troubled by youkai (though one can see youkai because they are "gifted" and the other through the use of a watch-like device). Natsume Yuujinchou takes a more sad and serious tone to the youkai presence in the protagionist's life and focuses more on the protagonist. Whereas Youkai Watch takes a more lighthearted and comical tone and focuses more on the youkai. However, both series have a tendency to leave you feeling the same way. They both have touching and warm stories that can make you smile.
This season of Digimon has a lot of similarity with Youkai Watch:
- The main protagonist is a boy who has a device that allow him to see Digimon/Youkai. - During the episode both of them have to face some problems caused by those Digimon/Youkai and they have to solve it.
- Also, they both can capture a Digimon/Yokai and use it to fight their enemies.
