The company already has a toy company in place to support the series. Hino also believes that the success of Youkai Watch is guaranteed. Hino said: “In regards too foreign markets, we have been taking a look at it in regards to Yokai Watch. We think it has a big appeal as a very Japanese-ish fantasy story. We already have support from a foreign toy maker company saying that it will be a definite success.
This sounds like a King of Pirates kind of thing, when it comes to marketing/branding/advertising.
