Is it serious or just another goofball Pokemon wannabe?
What a weird comparison.
GeGeGe no Kitaro about three decades older than Pokemon.
Well everyone was comparing Youkai Watch to Pokemon. Plus, as I clearly said, I never heard of GeGeGe no Kitaro, so how was I supposed to know it was older?
Never saw Yo Kai Watch but started Pokemon (Pocket Monsters ) on DVD. I may need to buy Advance next year.
And yes, GeGeGe no Kitaro is "serious". It doesn't present monsters in a collectible fashion, and it's not used to promote some gimmicky toyline or anything. Outside of a very slight cartoonish depiction, the yokai in that anime typically tent to stay very true to their stories of origin. Any changes to their depiction are usually to make them fit in with a more modern setting, or maybe to provide social commentary on what's going on in Japan right now. In fact, the franchise is considered an all-time classic by Japanese standards; right on up there with Mazinger Z, Space Battleship Yamato, Lupin III, and Doraemon just to name a few.
Google is for when I care enough to research something.
