What You Need to Know:
- Youkai watch has been marketed as the Pokemon killer. Well maybe domestically, but Youkai Watch's reach is nowhere near as powerful as Pokemon's is in the world. That being said, it's now been tapped for an Anime & Live Action Hybrid Movie!
- To say Japanese fans are screaming in fear, is not far from the truth. Some of the major actors and actresses utapped to play parts are the famous Kento Yamazaki(L.DK, Orange), Emi Takei (Ruroni Kenshin, Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu), Kenichi Endou (Visitor Q, The Raid), Yu Sawabe, Minami Hamabe, and Yuina Kuroshima!
- Japanese fans are bewildered as to what an Anime x Live Action Movie looks like so they are waiting with baited breath to see what this actually means. What do you think?

Hey! I am going to be sick now...
What is Kento going to play? A youkai? lol
The only person who should be a live action character is the main character and that is IT.
Why are they making a live action when they know it's going to fail?
I just.... I am scared that this is going to be some poorly produced live action with 3DCG everywhere?
Look at our gaming charts. Every time there is a Youkai Watch game released, it does sooooooo well. It makes sense. Regardless of whether or not the movie is good, it will not matter because this appeals to kids.
