New All-Ages Manga Series YO-KAI WATCH Launches Today From VIZ MEDIA

San Francisco, CA, November 3, 2015 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest publisher, distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, launches a brand new manga (graphic novel) series today with the release of YO-KAI WATCH Volumes 1 and 2.

The supernatural comedy adventure series by Noriyuki Konishi is inspired by the smash hit YO-KAI WATCH video game, developed by LEVEL-5 for the Nintendo 3DS, and rated ‘A’ for All Ages. YO-KAI WATCH, Vols. 1 and 2 will each carry a print MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN.

Yo-kai, inspired by the yokai of Japanese folklore, can’t be seen by the human eye, unless you have a specially designed Yo-kai Watch!

In the YO-KAI WATCH manga series, Nate Adams, an average kid, who once armed with the Yo-kai Watch, can see all kinds of Yo-kai that no one else can. He instantly begins collecting new invisible friends and embarks on supernatural adventures!

“YO-KAI WATCH is a fun kid-friendly, character-driven property that has become a major phenomenon in Japan, where it has captivated millions of fans of all ages, and we are thrilled to expand the scope of this dynamic property with the launch of the new manga series,” says Joel Enos, Senior Editor. “We look forward to fans discovering the action and excitement of this latest addition to the VIZ Media Perfect Square catalog.”

YO-KAI WATCH manga artist Noriyuki Konishi hails from Shimabara City, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. He debuted in 1997 with the one-shot title, E-CUFF, which appeared in Monthly Shonen Jump Original. He is also known for manga adaptations of AM Driver and Mushiking: King of the Beetles, along with Saiyuki Hiro Go-Kū Den!, Chōhenshin Gag Gaiden!! Card Warrior Kamen Riders, and Go-Go-Go Saiyuki: Shin Gokūden.
