Nowadays, Yo-kai Watch heads the list of the most successful anime series in Japan. This is not surprising at all: the developers of the video game –and TV anime series, and movie, and manga books- have managed to make it very popular among children and young people in the Asian country.
And all the merchandising products have made Yo-kai Watch appear in almost any corner of Japan.
The creators of Yo-kai Watch are very aware of the great potential of merchandising –and of its benefits, of course.
It would be difficult to complete a list of all the anime hits that have increased the profits thanks to the “fan phenomenon”, from Doraemon to Pokemon… but also Naruto or Dragon Ball, for example.
Given the fact that Yo-kai Watch franchise is supported by huge communities of fans in Japan, it is not strange nor surprising that every day new promotional daily products appear.
Let’s take a look to some of these fans and their latest purchases…
