Yo-Kai Watch Anime Gets New Trailer, Opening Theme

The Yo-Kai Watch westward hype train continues to ramp up with a new anime trailer and the final opening theme. The trailer continues to keep the spirit of the Japanese original intact, but the big surprise has to be the opening theme itself. The Gera Gera Po Song (The Laughing Song) has been left intact with new English lyrics, a rarity for a kids anime dub.

Compare the English opening to the Japanese original:

Back in June, an alternate trailer was posted online which many suspected was going to be the English opening. That seems now not to be the case.

The Yo-kai Watch anime is being brought westward through Densetsu USA. The show premiers on Disney XD beginning October 5th at 5 PM ET. A new episode will air everyday throughout the week, after which the show sticks to a weekly episode every Monday at 5 PM ET. The show prefaces the 3DS game’s release on November 6th.
