    Wonderful and heart-warming. A must-watch.
    This is certainly a charming series. Sometimes, there are series that just catch you off guard. Not because there are big battles or intense drama.. But just the slow, winding warmth that a story like this leaves it's viewer with. The music was good, I loved the first ending theme. This series reminds me of having a hectic day, but finding somewhere calm and serene towards dusk- like a garden or ...

    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 ...

    A Breath of Fresh Air
    This series is such a breath of fresh air. The characters were great and the plot was very engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed it and especially enjoyed Madara. The basic story line revolves around Natsume; a boy in high school with the ability to see spirits. He inherits his grandmother's book which is the target of many demons. I won't describe anymore because I feel that only witnessing the series ...

  • Beautifully masterful
    This series, while the animation is gorgeous and the soundtrack pulls you in and allows you to remember it for years to come hits all the points of an amazing anime to me. The story is beautiful and really helps describe the feeling people get when they are truly alone and how to overcome it. The story is brilliant and emotional while the characters grow greatly throughout the series but none more ...

  • Good balance,(info for more episodes in the renamed anime natsume yujin-choshi)
    This is in fact one my my most liked anime because it balances the emotion very well. I also love the combat. its not that deep but since the enemies in this anime get more intense by strength, or emotion(such as toying with the characters head).There is also very nice characters to like. I hope you give this anime a chance because i cant stop watching it. If your looking for more episodes after ...

  • Such a unique anime series!
    I enjoy watching this series so much! It makes you calm, happy, sad, excited, all at the same time!

    I usually watch one or two episodes before bed. I feel like they are the perfect bedtime stories, haha (except for the man-eating youkais).

    Anyway, definitely watch this series if you have the chance! It is a nice breather from all the complex anime out there. Such a relaxing and comforting ...

  • One of the finest shoujo anime titles ever made
    This is shoujo at its finest: great cast, great music, no insults to the intelligence of the viewers, etc. Some truly stunning animation sequences too.

    The greatest titles of any genre is tend to not be typical to that genre and this one is no exception. Emotionally engaging, with a dream-like quality at times.

  • It Hit Me in the Feels
    I truly enjoyed this anime series. The feels I got from meeting all of the youkai... I think this is a wonderful anime. It's funny, filled with attachment and emotion, and it's different from other shows. It's also a little longer so watching this helped pass the time, especially during winter break. One of my top animes!

  • Relaxing and heartwarming
    It's a wonderful journey that author leads us on, filled with interesting characters and beautiful feelings.

    There may be a large difference between youkai and humans, but we see how much overlaps as well -- and in that overlap, we see concentrated bits of what personhood is and connections with others.
