The main thought i had after watching Forever Friends was "What was the point?" Given it features a new protagonist (to the point of being a whole third of Yokai Watch 4), I was obviously wondering what different direction and tone LEVEL-5 would take to make it stand out from the goofy Keita era and the gritty Shadowside era. The answer: it's just more Shadowside. And if you're like me and hate all of the "Enma stuff" (which is all of the "cool anime guy" characters and swords and stuff) that's been defining the series for ages now, you're going to hate this.

The movie ...
