Coro Coro Comics magazine has just released its December 2019 issue. And there, they revealed that Yo-Kai Watch will be getting a brand new TV anime series. It will premiere on 27th December, and will also have the same setting as the 6th Yo-Kai Watch film, Yo-kai Watch Jam the Movie: Yo-Kai Academy Y – Can a Cat be a Hero?.

The 6th film’s setting is in Y-Academy, an elite school which only accepts students with top-class abilities. It will premiere in Japan on 13th December.

As for the TV anime, it will be using that same exact setting. The magazine’s announcement also confirmed that it will serve as a continuation of the film’s story.
