Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki claymation ads are kawaii as hell

How could you possibly make Jibanyan cosplaying Indiana Jones even more cute? Make it into a clay animation (or claymation) of course. These short but sweet TV spots kind of make me wish the whole game was a 3D clay-animated adventure....

Review: Yo-Kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls

Review: Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits

I completely fell in love with Yo-Kai Watch within days of the show's western launch. Level-5 has been welcome in my house since Dark Cloud back in 2000, but it has only honed its craft since then with the fantastic Ni no Kuni, Professor La...
