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 .
