Yo-Kai Exercise Number One
An exercise number at the end of the first 24t Yo-Kai Watch episodes has become somewhat of a cultural hit amongst Japanese viewers. The number, titled "Yo-Kai Exercise Number One" (Japanese: ようかい体操第一, Yōkai Taisō Dai-Ichi) takes the viewer through a kinesthetic-based exercise dance with various Yo-Kai characters dancing along to music. The song and dance has become very popular, especially amongst youth users of Nico Nico Douga, a YouTube-like video sharing service.
As of the current season, one movie has been released in the Yo-Kai series. The movie, titled "Yo-Kai Watch the Movie: The Secret is Create, Nyan!" (映画 妖怪ウォッチ 誕生の秘密だニャン！ Eiga Yōkai Wotchi: Tanjō no Himitsu da Nyan!) was released in Japan on December 20th, 2014. On August 20th, the dubbed version was released on fan-translation host mongeesubs.
