    Beautiful show with great stories
    Each episode gives you a glimpse of his past while still presenting an intriguing current story. The atmosphere and tempo of the series provides the audience with a sense of melancholy or nostalgia and yet remains positive and hopeful. I rarely collect animes but I'll likely get this one on Amazon.

    It's like Mushi-shi meets Ghost Hunt, with a touch of Angel Beats. I wish other animes are as ...

    An anime masterpiece
    Idea
    You will be following Takashi Natsume in his quest to return all the names of all Yokai (Spirits) that his grandmother has acquired and written in the Book of Friends. (In this world, you can summon a spirit if you know its name.) Note: Spirits will never give their name without a good reason.

    Natsume Yujin-cho (Natsume's Book of Friends) is the first of the following ...

    Nice quite anime with lots of heart
    While Natsume Yujincho is definitely more of a relationship driven anime then an action adventure, it packs quite the punch when it needs to. One of the shows strength is how characters flow in and out of the story as season plays out. Nyanko Sensei, the lucky cat, is just adorable and it is great to see how he grows as a character, even with all his complaining.

    An Authentic, Enjoyable, Heartfelt Show
    This show has a deep-rooted foundation in traditional Japanese lore. The story of a boy with an unusual gift, left to clean up the fractured relationships from his mother's life.

    There is no fanservice, no severe violence, it's all just an enjoyable collection of tales. The emotional journey feels sincere; and the adventures are all unique and interesting. Highly recommended.

    Touching with a Nice pace
    If you are tired of anime being all about action and having no character then watch Natsume Yujin-cho. It has a very calm, relaxing pace without being boring and most of the stories are so touching its hard not to cry. A very very lovely series with memorable characters and heartfelt messages.

    Forever the Favorite
    I have watched so many animes yet I have never come across one such as this one. This series played on my hearts strings and is on a completely different level than any other anime. YT was simply divine and I will never find another like it. 5 out of 5 stars. Highly recommended.

    I love Natsume Yujincho
    I have watched this anime since it was released on Crunchyroll and I really enjoy watching it. I'm not quite sure what exactly about it that I love, I think it's the pure innocence and the great storyline. It's so cute!

    I love these characters!
    Natsume Yujincho is a GREAT anime. Besides the stories that keep you entertained, it's the characters who make you laugh. Especially Sensei. He's the cat in the photo. Then you have Natsume. He's been tormented by youki since he was little. So, he doesn't like them at all, but that changes when he moves in with some distant relatives. There he meets Sensei and discovers the book of friends. A lot ...

    I'll Return Your Name. :3
    People say it has a slow pace, but thats not necessarily true. I find this one better than one of the Monster of the Week anime shows because it sometimes introduces new characters, goes through daily life problems, and the music that goes along with it matches. This anime really is relaxing, although the animation seems kind of weird in the beginning you'll get used to it. The character's ...

    The Past, Friends, and a Lucky Cat.
    From the start, there was something peculiar about Natsume Yujincho. As my curiosity was already piqued at first sight, it was only natural that I clicked watch. The ability to see yokai, or spirits, isn't a natural thing that most people are gifted with. In Natsume's case, it's exacerbated by his familiar look to his grandmother, Reiko. Now, I know that many people who read these reviews ...
