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.

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 read more
