    Beautiful and Bittersweet
    As I watched this very beautifully animated series, I found myself continually describing it as bittersweet. The stories of the youkai tug at your heart, and illustrate the struggle of humans and spirits to make connections and find their way.

    Interestingly, the structure of the series is episodic, unusual for anime, but each episode gives you a new, touching story as Natsume meets and deals ...

    Rises Above Its Peers
    While Natsume Yujincho might not end up on the list of top modern classics in anime, it absolutely deserves attention and praise. The main character is likable but flawed, observant but human, and actually interested in taking part in the world around him. The side characters are varied, and do actually get development at times. The plot is imaginative despite carrying some clear tropes, and the ...

    Nya - nya! Nyanko-sensei!
    Overall positive vibe. I have not 1 bad thing to say about this show. It is a moving story, filled with fun and creepy characters. I like the story line, I can't wait to watch the next season! I especially like Nyanko-sensei!

    A beautiful and touching anime
    On one hand, this is a blend of horror and adventure as Natsume Takashi deals with the spirits and monsters only he can see.

    At its heart, though, this is the story about a lost boy learning to find his place in the world.

    Natsume Yujin-Cho is a Must-Watch Anime
    Natsume Yujin-cho has to be one of the best shounen animes out there. The artwork is very well done and unique. It has it's own style that you won't find in too many animes. The art sometimes reminds you of ancient Japanese art. There are a variety of character designs that you won't find in any other anime. The characters are also well done. They all have their own distinct personalities. The ...

    One of my favorite animes ever.
    This anime... what can I really say? It's downright amazing. The storyline is great (while it can be slightly confusing at some times), the characters are well drawn and developed, and it sets a lot of moods for the viewer.
    The story follows Natsume Takashi, who has seen youkai- Japanese spirits- ever since he was a child. After running away from a youkai that, for some reason, is calling him ...

    Relaxing and fun show to watch
    Natsume is a nice anime to kick back and relax to as you watch. From the pastoral country settings to the main characters themselves, everything just give off the impression of being relaxed. Please do not confuse this with boring. The characters are very likeable and sympathetic. The main plot of the series is less important in the long run as it is just a device for the show and the viewer ...

    My Absolute Favorite Anime
    This show absolutely makes my day. The characters are warm, fun, and silly at times. It balances heart-felt moments with crazy humor involving a round pig-cat. Nearly every episode brings me to the verge of tears with the messages it delivers about acceptance, open-mindedness, and friendship.
    My only fear is that I'll never be able to find another anime that can fulfill me in the same way that ...

    Like Curling Up in Bed on a Rainy Day
    Natsume Yujin-cho weaves together many genres and moods into an elegant series. This show has a perfect blend of comedy, action, drama, and slice-of-life, gently presented in a way that just feels like home. It is impeccably written and crafted, yet down-to-earth. This anime cured my depression, moisturized my skin, brought my grandma back to life, and caused me to reach nirvana.

    If you love ...
