    Heartwarming, funny, calm, artistic, emotional, and powerful. Natsume's story is a must feel.
    Natsume Yujin-cho - Season 1
    One of the best written series I have seen to date. Small but excellent cast of characters. The ending song just gets to your heart and takes the emotional level on each episode just that much further. The unique stories on each episode leaves the viewer speechless due to the emotional way that they are told. This first season was a personal favorite. ...

    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.

  • Miss it sooo bad! T~T
    It's very well drawn and pretty, never seen art style like in this anime. It's very original, loved how laid back and relaxing it was at times. Most of the characters were diversified and well thought out, which is hard for me to find in a anime.The only problem I have with it is that it was a bit repetitive. Other than that it's an awsome anime that stands out alot compared to others! Would ...

  • Natsume and his Friends
    It is nice to finally be able to finish this series as when I originally started watching it was back in 2008 or so.

    I regard television shows such as Natsume-Yujin-chou in higher regard than most because even though it has some fantastical things going on (in this case a boy has the ability to see and help youkai), it still maintains a level of reality. In this instance, this anime depicts ...

    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.

  • Gentle, relaxing, feel-good anime
    If the only good fallout from the Ishihara controversy regarding anime, is that some of them end up relying less on sex, T&A and moe, and more on interesting and realistic stories about people... then I welcome anime like Natsume Yuujin-chou.

    The thing that stands out for me more in NYC, is watching the decisions that Takashi makes... trying to see the good in youkai without being clouded by ...

    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.

  • Perfect Pacing - Calm Series
    This is a great series to watch if you want to get away from the fast pace that most shows seem to have now. Don't get me wrong, in no way is this series slow to develop. However, it's a very calming series with many touching moments. Worth the watch if you're looking for something to watch when you want to relax.

    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.
