    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 ...

    Fantastic anime, but...
    I absolutely loved this anime. I loved the background story of his grandmother, I loved all of the characters and their cute little quirks. and Nyanko-sensei was my absolute favorite character. Natsume was very sweet, and I really admired his compassion. The only things that bugged me about this anime were: the opening and ending music was kind of cheesy, and they really didn't talk enough about ...

    Anime that touches the heart and emtions
    I watched this anime a few times. It has a nice character development and brings out a calming feeling that most animes don't have. It’s something that is enjoyable to watch. Most of the episode always pulls out one of your emotions either if its sadness, clam, happy, etc.. (A warm feeling inside. That may just be me though.) After watching over hundreds of anime, so far this one is the most ...

    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 ...

    How is this anime not known yet?!
    This anime was completely mindblowing. It is just amazing I do not know what to say, it has so many adventures for the main character. This anime shows how the main character evolves and it is really amazing how they portray it. This anime might look boring, but I promise you it isnt. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

    The acceptance of "Home"
    Natsume yujin-cho left a huge impression on me, and everyone i know who's seen it had alluded to being as emotional about it as I have.

    I focused in on his alienation during his youth and struggle to find acceptance as a young adult because of his gift. As one of a few motifs running through the story, it lets us explore Natsume Takeshi's childhood and adolescence. He's kicked back and forth ...

    my mid-terms stress reliever. 100% suggested to anyone in a bad mood,stressed,or bored.
    This was THE anime I watched during mid-terms last year. This is one of THE reasons Im proud of my love for anime(oh..and free! ;D. jk jk, MANSERVICE YES!). It has a more classical feel to it that makes it feel more like something cultural and oriental-interesting, with all its japanese folklore-Yet its lively,modern, and breathtaking and makes your face hurts from smiling after every ...

    Just... So... Beautiful...
    When I saw this anime for the first time, I though..."This anime might not be very good..." And then rejected it. I thought it was the worst mistake, because when I watched the first episode, it was pretty awesome!!! I love the art and the story! Every episode is so beautiful it touched my heart. In most of the episodes, I cried~~~ I really hope that there will be another season(season 5), ...
