So glad to have this back! Didn't really check the anime charts, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this up on the tab. Pretty interesting way to start the season. Nyanko-sensei really put in a lot of work in this episode. Tanuma and Taki looked like they would be good parents.

The Days Eater title made me think of someone who would shorten one's life span. I was surprised to find that the Yokai's power had the opposite effect of making someone younger.

Not going to lie, the new OP song is one of my favorites so far this season. Beautifully animated.

The second episode was fun to hear seiyuu Hosoya in it.

I don't remember if I saw that love story episode ...what season was it from?

The end of the show was pretty funny after Shibata hand the bag of goodies

That was a funny line

That was a strong start to the season. The first episode was great. Good to see Natsume back again.

Two weeks without a post...need to fix that.

We had some ominous forshadowing from Natori at the end of the episode; I'm interested to see where that ends up.

If I had a complaint about this season (and the last), it would be the lack of conflict/story spanning multiple episodes. The first couple seasons were low on conflict spanning multiple episodes (if I'm remembering the season breaks correctly), but we were more often getting snippets about Reiko, and piecing them together brought some cross-episode development. The last season and the start of this one seemed to put Reiko on the back-burner to flesh out other characters, which makes things a bit more episodic for me.

It looks like next episode is a side character focus again, but hopefully we'll come back to the set up at the end of this episode.

This episode was absolutely majestic. I dont know how this show does it, but it gets a lot of tones mixed and delivers something really incredible. In the end, I felt really sad. It was really good, but man really sad how it all played out. The imagery was absolutely stunning esp when Takuma was talking with the yokai right in front of him. Now, what is Natori going to do? Really hope the trust between them doesn't get severed. I personally don't see it happening, but who knows. I could very well be wrong. He has been changing... slowly... but still changing. How this all goes down will be really exciting.

I really loved this other-perspective episode. We go to see through the eyes of Nishimura and Kitamoto. We know, from Natsume's perspective, that there is yokai around them, but those two can't see it. That creates an atmosphere of unease and distance. Also neat to learn more of those two characters' backgrounds and how they met Natsume.

Most named, human characters (plus Nyanko-sensei) have had perspective episodes like this, except for maybe Sasada and Shigeru. Hope to see more of these in the future.

I'm glad to see more in depth stories of Natsume. This really is tops if not my favorite anime. And that is saying something.
