Story of Yo-Kai Watch

One day, while searching for bugs in the woods, a boy named Keita comes across a peculiar capsule machine next to a sacred tree. When he opens one of the capsules up, it brings forth the Yo-Kai Whisper, who gives Keita a device known as the Yo-Kai Watch. Using this, Kaita is able to identify and see various different Yo-Kai that are haunting people and causing mischief. Joined by the cat Yo-Kai Jibanyan, Keita and Whisper start befriending all sorts of Yo-Kai, which Keita can summon to battle against more ill-intentioned Yo-Kai that happen to live in his town, causing terrible trouble. He also goes on adventures around the town with his Yo-Kai partners to help his human friends Kuma, Kanchi,and Fumi-chan. Later, a new girl named Inaho moves into town, in a different homeroom class from Keita, and discovers her own Yo-Kai Watch and the Yo-Kai Usapyon, who wants her help in restoring the happiness of a scientist he accidentally upset, before opening up a detective agency to investigate many Yo-Kai “crimes” plaguing the city.
