Yo-kai Watch

The New Yo-kai Watch (Japanese: 新型妖怪ウォッチを手に入れろ Shingata Yōkai Wotchi o Te ni Irero) and The Unboxing (Japanese: 正しい箱の開け方 Tadashii Hako no Akekata) is the 27th episode of the Yo-kai Watch anime series. It was broadcasted in Japan on July 18, 2014, and in the United States on August 1, 2016.


Steve Jaws unveils the new Yo-kai Watch Model Zero resulting in a big sale in Yo-kai-lifornia, Yo-kai World. With help from Mirapo, Nate and Whisper go to Yo-kai-lifornia in order to get the Yo-kai Watch Model Zero which Jibanyan and every Yo-kai up to now are in line for.

The Unboxing







  • This is the first episode Nate meets Komajiro.
  • The scene where Jibanyan beats up Nate after summoning him would continue in several future episodes.
  • This episode and Westward Yo! were previewed at the San Diego Comic Con 2016 on July 23, 2016 during the Yo-kai Watch voice actor panel.
  • This is the first episode of the Season 2 English dub.

Dub Differences

  • When Nate inserts a regular medal into the Model Zero, the Original Yo-kai Watch summoning song plays instead of a message that reminds the user about the Medal incompatibility. This was likely done to match up with the real-life Hasbro-manufactured Zero Watch that was once sold in select western territories, as it can play any Medal unlike its Japanese variant.
  • Jibanyan's Nyext Z Medal was changed to his normal Z medal.
