  • 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.

    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 ...

    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 ...
