Yo-Kai Watch Episode 4: Japanese & English comparison

It’s time for another comparison between the English versions of Yo-Kai Watch. Episode 4 aired Oct 8th, 2015.
I’m not going to go in-depth if there were a lot of script changes in the episode, if any.
Again as I am not going to write much about this episode I will now show you the paint edits throughout the episode. I may have missed some, if so feel free to let me know.
I will provide 2 pictures like before to show the comparison between both versions so that you can see the English edits from the Japanese version. There are a lot of paint jobs in this episode.
On top the Japanese while the bottom will be the English edits.

Blink and you may miss these.

She’s not fat in the English version, she just looks terrible. I understand this changed in the script.

The endings was cut 3 seconds earlier in the English version and there was no eyecatch this time.

English: Cookie bear!!~ Instead of Goro-chan. Pun: Gorogoro is a Japanese onomatopoeia for around that something is rolling.

Also I found the mother lip-syncing was way off.

And there we have episode 4 done with. That’s everything I found in this episode. No eye catches. A lot of a paint job edits especially the odd one with the music book.

(I do apologies if there are any spelling or grammar mistakes. I noticed there was a few on my episode 1 article which then I went back to fix the errors. I am writing this late at night, it has just gone 4.25am all so writing scripts/articles is not my strong point. But waiting for a video for these will take longer.)

  1. After the less than stellar episode yesterday, this episode more than made up for it. Hungramps has officially became my favorite Yo-Kai as well as Wazzat in a close second. It was just amazing to see a Yo-Kai with an actual emotional backstory. I’m a sucker for those stories so you can imagine how invested I was in Hungramp’s story. Wazzat’s backstory was pretty decent too, and I can see him and Whisper will have plenty of comedic moments in the future. I am definitely putting these two on my Yo-Kai team on the 3DS game!

    I do have a question BDT87, where do you watch the episodes? It wouldn’t happen to be PokéCanada’s YouTube channel, would it? That’s actually my YouTube channel and I couldn’t help but notice the similar time frames you take to make an article after I upload each episode. If you wanted, I could supply you with HD recordings to better your articles in the future.

    Thanks again for this article. Tomorrow’s the last day of “Yo-Kai Week”, let’s hope we end it with a big episode!

    1. No I don’t watch on YouTube, but it’s within the same time frame I assume. I just wait to see what’s become available or wait for a friend to show me. It’s good that you enjoyed it, I did enjoy this episode as well and I’m glad they kept the story the same about Hungramps “passing” without doing much changes to know that he is actually dead. Similar in the fist episode. We all figured out that jibanyan died but did have censored scenes and change of dialogue etc.
