  • The best anime in years
    This is in every way a 5-star show. Story, pace, tone, art, music: it all adds up into an incredibly satisfying experience. Its themes are complex and subtle, making the fantastic utterly relatable. I cried genuinely (since the storyline is complex, there is a lot of beautiful bittersweetness in the telling) nearly every episode. It's amazing how relaxing it is to watch considering how much ...

  • Interesting, Fun, Deep, Emotional
    I really enjoyed this anime. I loved the story. It was different from anything else I had seen up until that point and therefore it really held my attention. The development of the characters is interesting too as it takes its time to tell the story and open you up to the world created. I highly recommend this anime. Give it a try you will enjoy it.

  • really great drama with some comedy mixed in.
    I have been reccomending the two seasons of this show to anyone that really liked the mush shi anime, mostly due to the fact that they are both really close in terms of the feel of the story, both share a common issue and they both share the same pace and emotional mood ( with this show having more comedy than mushi shi )
    Overall I really liked this one, I flew threw both seasons and still wanted ...

  • Moving and Sweet Anime
    I've thoroughly enjoyed this Anime, and most episodes have brought a tear to my eye. I love stories about youkai, spirits, Shinto, etc... because we're so very starved for such things in North America. Our culture scoffs at anything "folklore" related and shows about our spirit heritage are few and far between.

    This is a story about loneliness, friendship, compassion, prejudice, and love, in ...

  • A laid back, yet intriguing supernatural anime
    This anime seems almost cliche at first. A high school boy who can see spirits. We've all seen that before. It goes way beyond just that. He meets his future "partner in crime" Madara aka Nyanko sensei and the pair's conflicting personalities bounce off each other in such a way that it is amusing without being annoying. We also get to meet and learn more about these spirits, not just that they are ...

  • A good breather from endless intense animes.
    This series has all the elements you would expect an action series to have, but somehow it doesn't have an action-series feel. The premise is a boy with superhuman abilities in a world filled with monsters, most of which are out to hurt him. Action-story, right? While it's true there is some action, the "climate" of the series is very gentle and feel-good, you feel satisfied when each episode is ...

  • Natsume Yujin-cho was just what I needed
    I've been out of the habit of watching anime for a little while, and I needed something to get me back in. This was it!

    Natsume, who can see youkai, was a great character to lead me back into the world of anime and I like that he has this equal love for youkai and humans, and it just teaches us to love all creatures (even though sometimes we wish they werent real, hehe). Anyways, plot was ...

  • Touching and Captivating.
    I absolutely love this series. It's a quiet touching story about relationships with well-timed comedic moments from the "pig-cat" that I adore! (Just got figures of the cat, soo cute!) It's an unlikely pair/partnership that you watch grow into a great relationship. Highly recommend.

  • Refreshingly Addictive (:
    There's a manga out on this anime and I seriously recommend you read it (:

    Anyhow, I read the manga (got up to volume 12 I think?) and I LOVED it so very much!! The art style was different and refreshing, as was the plot and the way the story just flowed. Coming onto crunchyroll I noticed this anime and wanted to read it but seeing as how I'd been disappointed with the animated version of a lot ...

  • *** It will stir you mind ****
    Human nature,our behavior, social aptitude, frienship and love (not the romantic one) are captured in this anime.
    On top of it, you'll find quite a lot of action/supernatural is mixt in a "slice of life" type of anime.
    It's well balance, you won't get bored!

    It a MOST, to watch!

    Enjoy your lack of sleep to come!!!
