Taking place after the events of the fourth film, the series centers on 11 yr old Keisuke Amano, Natsume's younger brother (both of whom are the children of Keita Amano and Fumika Kodama of the original Youkai Watch anime) who doesn't believe in any supernatural phenomenon around him. But as he notices his sister is frequently comes back home late, he decided to stalk her, only to find out she is doing her duties exorcising evil Youkai alongside her friends Touma and Akinori, and running a Yo-Kai detective agency. With their secret revealed to him, Natsume decided to let him tag along in her activities as they investigate Youkai crimes and take on evil Youkai to maintain peace all over the city.

The best Yo-Kai Watch series, Gakuen, Kuroi and Classic series are not bad
But this anime is the best adaption of the main concepts of the franchise, this anime uses the nakama power, the dynamic rithym and the creativity to make a very good story
But, as much as all these details are great, at the end of the day it's an anime that feels bland, it's the anime with the best Yo-Kai Watch ideas and excellent execution of them, but you end up getting bored
The plot chapters are the best of all, and even if the filler chapters have very good ideas and some of them ...

Preliminary (30/49 eps)
So this is the only review for this anime on mal. Uhh I watched it because it was playing on animax and I was bored and had nothing else to do. I didn't even know anything about the yokai watch lore or anime before watching it. Its fun I guess, its like pokemon in the sense that it gets dragged out or the pacing of the story is slow. Had some pretty dark concepts and pretty interesting plotlines, also the transformations look cool. I don't recommend this anime and I only watched it because it was on, but I did watch quite a few arcs ...
