The late great Shigeru Mizuki’s classic manga, GeGeGe no Kitaro is set in a world of Youkai. Now, they are teaming up with arguably the most popular youkai series today, Yo-Kai Watch! And this ain’t just any team up, because the Kitaro characters are appearing in the fourth Yo-Kai Watch film.
According to the official website, Kitaro and the gang will be acting as guests for the upcoming Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: The Return of the Oni King. To be exact, Kitaro, his father Medama Oyaji, Nezumi Otoko, Neko Musume, Sunakake Babaa, Konaki Jijii, and Ittan Momen will be the ones appearing.
And that’s not all! Legendary seiyuu, Masako Nozawa, will also be joining the cast. She will once again reprise her role as Kitaro for this new Yokai Watch film. And finally, the film will also feature Kitanyan, which of course combines Jibanyan and Kitaro.
Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: The Return of the Oni King will hit Japanese theatres this 16th December 2017.
