The Yo-kai Watch anime (Japanese : 妖怪ウォッチ アニメ ) has been airing in Japan since January 8, 2014 and currently holds nearly two-hundred episodes. The second Japanese season started on July 10, 2015 from EP077 that introduced Inaho Misora and Usapyon. Episodes regularly airs every week at Tuesdays on the Japanese television TV Tokyo. However, some episodes air at different dates.

The anime has also aired in the United States at October 5, 2015 on the television network Disney XD, a month before the North American release date for the Yo-kai Watch video game. It also airs on the Canadian channel Teletoon. In addition to airing on Disney XD, episodes are released on the official Yo-kai Watch YouTube channel every Thursday. The anime also aired on the Disney XD block on Disney Channel at December 18, 2015, which marks the first Disney XD series to air on another channel, that isn't an original program.

The anime also broadcasted across channels in Europe and Africa in Spring 2016, after the anime became a success in North America.[1]

Episodes are split into multiple parts which is similar to that of American children cartoons; however, the parts are usually in uneven times with each other, some even played as "cold opens" before the opening theme.

The anime is directed by Shinji Ushiro, and produced by Yoshikazu Kuretani and Kiyofumi Kajiwara. The story is written by Yoichi Kato and the music is arranged by Ken'ichirō Saigō. The episodes are done at OLM.
