There's a word, Sehnsucht, which I feel captures the essence of this show at it's best. There's no direct translation but "nostalgia" is close, tho it's more cutting, a bittersweet yearning for an ideal that doesn't exist.


Thank you so much. You have no idea how long I've been looking for a word like that. I remember when I was in junior high trying to describe to my friend, and I quote myself, "nostalgia for a life I never lived", but I searched and searched and until this day I never found the word. He thought I was crazy, but I knew there must be a term for that sensation, and now I have it thanks to you!

I started season 1 not long ago and I'm really liking this show. I love that it's episodic so I don't feel the desire to binge so much. Just relax and watch an episode or two. Really well written.

Not sure what came first, this or Mushishi but Natsume Yujin-cho instantly reminded me of it.

Mushishi came first , circa 2005 ( I have all the DVD of that one ) . Natsume came out in 2008 .I cant even believe that this is the 5th season
but I like that this one is touching more on Reiko .

Natsume's Book of Friends S5 / Natsume Yūjin-Cho Go EP 9 "Following A Narrow Path"

Another great life lesson EP Natsume means Mitsuzara who then teels his story about Shuon who rescued him became friends awhile but Shuon had to part ways but Mitsuzara wants to join him and his follwers but afraid he isnt good renough especially after Natusme sat on him . But in a twist he overhears if you give a human to the Yokai he could join. Mitsuzara knows he is coming through but when asked for an offering he declines. Later one of Shuon fellow travelers who belittled Mitsuzara gives a book of trials so he could study and join the travelers if he is up to it

Asking to Join



A chance for later

Episode 10

It's been some time since I watched the prior seasons, but seems like this season, we're seeing a lot of non-Natsume perspectives. I'm not too keen on the whole exorcist themed episodes, but it's these kinda stand-alone episodes I really like, from someone who has been affected, and affects, Natsume's life. And the white crow at the end almost made me lose it.

The latest episode, with Touko-san's perspective, is among my favorite in the series. I love how incredibly considerate she is to everyone. She spends the time to really observe others. While she noticed that Shigeru was troubled, she did ask but didn't get much information. Rather than pry more into the matter, she waits for him to gather his thoughts and approach her. She does this with Natsume as well. While caring for Natsume, she waits for him to feel comfortable with his new family.

I thought it was also really cute when she was thinking of Shigeru when on travel. The crow scene was very touching. It also made me wonder if that crow was alone because it was searching for a partner or their partner passed away. I hope that Natsume can fully open up to them in the future.

Natsume's Book of Friends S5 / Natsume Yūjin-Cho Go EP 10"Touko and Shigeru"

What a great episode the essence of it was so beautuful / first with Touko and Shigeru then having Natsume move . Even a life of a crow was rewarding reminding us how little we appreciate the world

Touko and her friend The Crow



A very nice caring husband and wife ( Nice to see an older generation



Natsume feels wanted



Natsume can see the Albino ( probally spririt ) crow and Touko is happy

Yes I am late posting but watching the last couple of anime shows made it more enjoyable instead of rushing.

Natsume's Book of Friends S5 / Natsume Yūjin-Cho Go EP 11 "To The Ephemeral Ones”

It was nice his foster parents / friends / Yukai were worried about him when he was sick . It was a nice touch to end the season but more is coming !
