Pokemon has acquired a new Rival

Post by Guest on Mon Apr 20, 2015 8:14 pm

Youkai Watch has taken japan for quite some time. The kids are loving it as if its a new version of pokemon,

It has similar foundations to that of pokemon but there a few differences.
One of the main ones is that its more focused on bonding with the spirits rather then catching them directly then using them and growing with them in battle specifically,

So for those who have heard of it or watched it what are your thoughts if you may be so kind?

the full idea of it sounds supper cute,
but i fear if it may take a digimon type of approach and end up getting.. so silly its forgotten.
I think the main reason pokemon does so well are its games..

thow personally i may try to find an ep Youkai Watch
just to get a true feel on where it might go!

I could agree with you there it really depends on how people in America and other countries will be taking it since they are planning a release over here.

In japan its highly celebrated though kids love it and some of the older pokemon fans as well.

As for pokemon having the games I could agree with you as well there.
They are the major thing that drives the show since at times it can be quite lackluster and relies on our nostalgia of the games and just being able to see the world more.

I cant say for sure if it will or not but it does have a chance it just depends on how the west takes to it.

Also in case you need a link you can watch the first part here if your interested.

colress, i can see where your coming from in thinking that its building success may become the foundation for pokemon's successor, however in my opinion it was not only the look of pokemon, nor the characters, i believe it was the hard earned hours that were spent in attempting to "capture them all" and all i will say is, it may have an audience with younger fans, but that seems to be its extent, as i know of older fans who where into pokemon due to it being what it is, in appealing to more than just a younger audience, but only time will tell! haha

Pokemon has what one would call a media ecology/media ecosystem surrounding the franchise. The anime is one of the "nexus points" that disseminates the characteristics to prospective fans. It's how many fans are introduced to Pokemon.

For Youkai Watch to remain successful the owners of the property would have to ensure that each piece of the media ecology is appealing. The games, anime, merchandise must be of a certain quality to stand up under scrutiny. If each piece in the franchise is of a high enough quality it creates a pleasant environment for fans to be part of. The media ecology.
