    A real coming-of-age masterpiece
    Natsume Yuujinchou was not what I expected it to be, when I first began watching it. I was under the impression that it would be about the everyday adventures of a boy dealing with youkai and ayakashi, and in a very literal sense, I suppose that is what I got indeed. But I was unprepared for the depth of thought and emotion that went into this. On the surface, it is about a boy reluctantly dealing ...

    By far the best anime i've seen
    I'm one of those action kind of guys, but when it comes to The Natsume Yujincho series, i change in mood, it's a kind of series meant for anyone of all ages, it has those life living moment where it just relates to you in life. It is quite a hilarious and quite a sadden series when you realize it. it's very life like which makes it seem amazing to others.I cried way more than i should have in this ...

    Natsume's fourth installment is an awe inspiring overall masterpiece.
    I have to start with the final episode: the best episode between the first four series. Period. It delivers a powerful emotional punch to one's soul, and exceptionally explains why Natsume is one of the most unique anime characters out there. Backed up by top class writing, Natsume's fourth installment focuses more on his childhood memories and how much he had to endure before finding a real ...

    Season 4 is here? Why seperated from other seasons?
    As almost same as season 3, scene in which Natsume returns names from Yokai doesn't show up. I think that's fine because the important thing which Natsume Yujincho wants to show is the relationship between humanbeings and Yokai, which are derived from old gods or deities. Not god in christianity or mosrim. The Japanese used to feel deities in their dayly life and thought all things aroud them had ...

    Simply the best in its genre.
    Nastume Yujin-cho shi is the fourth season of the popular anime series of Natsume Yujincho.

    Natsume, a young highschool boy with the 'gift' of seeing spirits since he was a child. The anime shows the events that unfold since he moved from the city to a country town to live with his distant relatives due to various circumstances, as well as revealing Natsume's past as he goes through his ...

    A winner for storytelling
    There's not much I can add to the wonderful, plentiful reviews already here... but Natsume Yuujin-chou Shi added finer resolution, cleaner animation and the long-awaited background story behind Takashi's early life and the treatment he'd suffered in response to his gift.

    "-Shi" also gave me the impression that it was a bit more substantial in tone than the past 3 seasons, a bit more serious. ...

    Awesome, in the original sense of the word.
    My recommendation is that you watch this show immediately, but if you wish to waste time finding out why you should watch it (You should just watch it. Go!) you can read on.

    Natsume presents some of the most beautifully rendered and lovingly crafted stories I've seen. The idea is that there a world beyond what we normally see, filled with youkai which are seen by only a select few. Youkai live ...

    More episodes please!
    My kids and I LOVE this series. I mean all my 3 kids. My first grader loves is so much and this has been a motivation factor for her to improve her reading (she has to read the subtitles in order to understand the stories). More episodes please!

    I love anime again because of this
    This is one anime that will touch your heart and restore your faith in humanity (even if it's humanity in anime characters).

    It's definitely one of my top 5 favorite animes. Each episode is excellent.

    Ahh now where to begin...
    Natsume has been my dear friend for a few years now. This series is more about personal growth and overcoming your own demons, rather than just a supernatural slice of life. Alot can be learned from this series. If your ready for the emotional journey- to really be immersed in a story-please watch this. You will cry, your heart will ache, but I promise you every episode will leave your mind ...
