    An anime that stands out
    Natsume Yujincho centers around Natsume and his evolving relationship with the youkais and humans around him. It is relaxing and heart-warming, something that you would love to watch after a tiresome day. The show has a lot of depth, and it differs from other youkai stories by having the youkai experience the same emotions as a human.

    Except for the ability to see youkai, Natsume is normal. He ...

  • A special kind of anime, Something akin to Mushi-shi
    I came across this anime from an online review of some top ten list and this slice of life was listed up there more so due to it's unique nature. At first I kinda blew it off, I find most slice of life anime to be boring. But the interest in this perked when it went more into his involvement with spirits or rather Yoaki.

    Needless to say I found this show interesting and relaxing, it was great ...

  • Beautifully Written Anime
    I love this anime. When my day is hectic or negative I'll watch a few episodes and feel so much better. I can and do watch this amine over and over though not non-stop. I'll take a break and then watch a few episodes here and there.

    Natsume is a kind-hearted young boy who had a difficult upbringing because he was misunderstood. People were so mean to him. He finds friends along the way ...

  • I really, really liked it!
    I searched hard for an anime like this and I wasn't disappointed until it ended!

    This show had me gasping, sniffling and laughing out loud a lot! It was easy enough for me to follow it without becoming really confused too. Even without the usual sexual humor I go for it was a really great watch and I look forward to continuing it!

  • Hard to believe how good this was.
    This anime is for when you need to chill, sit back, relax, have some feels, and occasionally be creeped right the **** out.

    The premise isn't hard to understand: Natsume's grandmother used to go around kicking monster tail and taking names. Now he wants to give them back.

    Most of the show is about closure. I think this is one of the reasons it does so well, since most animes have ...

  • One of my favorite anime of all time
    Wow this was better than I thought it would be. The artwork is so beautiful and the manga is just as good as the anime. I never want this to end its so clam and emotional :') once you watch one episode you get attached to the characters. This is an anime I would re watch over and over again.

  • a review of the show
    this show is about the relationship of the protagonist to humans and creatures only people with spiritual power can see. the show focus around his interaction with them. the characterisation is always very good and well paced. I would recommend this to any one who wants to see supernatural show or one about people.

  • Anime with a soul and a depth you don't always find in others.
    This anime has me on the verge of tears many times when I watch it. Youma in many other anime titles are at worst strictly evil and inherently bad creatures, and at best shown to be very static and unchanging. Natsume Yujin-cho personifies these youma. They have the qualities and traits of human beings. Natsume explores and helps these youma that were bound to his grandmother for one reason or ...

  • A masterpiece hidden under simplicity!
    Natsume Yuujinchou is a wonderful story fulfilled with feelings and special bonds between characters, the story is entertaining with super natural and spiritual details but the real deal comes with the amazing ability it has to make you approach the characteracters in a short time... in the middle of action and drama you have kindness, warm feelings, friendship, mutual comprehension.. you learn to ...
