LEVEL-5 confirm Youkai Watch anime’s western localisation
It was back in July that LEVEL-5’s president and CEO Akihiro Hino indicated that they were planning Youkai Watch’s western expansion “in a big way.”
Now, Hino has confirmed that they are indeed localising the anime. Cinema Today report that, speaking at Youkai Watch the Movie: Tanjou no Himitsu da Nyan!’s launch, he confirmed that they will release the anime in the United States, Europe and other regions.
While some character names will be changed, popular ones used in Japan – such as Whisper and Jibanyan – will remain the same.
