Yo-kai Watch (#1)

Yo-kai Watch is a proper manga for the young kids. A fairly simple story in which Nate Adams collects Yo-kai friends. Once he has befriended a yokai he may call upon them again to help him out later on. he gets about eight of them in this book. The text is pretty easy to read for this age group so the plot doesn't get too involved but there are plenty of strange characters each chapter (the yokai) and each one either has a problem Nate helps them solve or they help Nate solve a problem. There are fun-loving antics with lots of humour. It will be a bit repetitive for anyone over about age ten, but young readers will love having their own proper manga just for themselves.
