  • A beautiful and original anime
    This story is by far one of the most fantastic and beautiful anime that I've seen. The characters are original and the way they all evolve as the story goes is both realistic and gives us an insight on all protagonists. I would recommend to all people who really want to have a glimpse of how Japan's countryside looks like. It is truly realistic.

  • Unlike Anything Else I've Ever Seen
    This was so different from anything I had ever seen. Each of the yokai are really different and creepy! This captured me from the moment I started! The main characters are so wonderful, and it was made my heart melting see how caring all the friends and family were to Natsume. A really good anime to get into, not to mention such beautiful and whimsical animation. (A favorite of mine)

  • This is a really good show
    Natsume Yujin-cho has one of my favorite opening and endings. They fit the show perfectly. I could listen to them all day.
    Natsume life changes once he moves and he discovers the meaning behind the book of friends. He meets lots of different people and youkai. It is thanks to them that he is able to really change and become a happier person.
    I like how the show doesn't just show him with the ...

  • Watched for the youkai, stayed for Natsume!
    I often find anime about youkai because I find them interesting. I don't always love the story or main character. However, I fell in love with Natsume. The artwork is stunning in this anime. It has an old vintage vibe to it, while staying current and fresh. I love all the various personalities of the youkai, and the interactions between them. I like how you can understand the feelings of Natsume ...

  • You'll laugh and cry!
    For the few negative comments complaining of a lack of action, I really don't recall seeing this in the Action/Adventure genre....so I'm a bit confused. As for the genres that actually apply to this show, Natsume and friends fit them to a T. I was captivated and enjoyed the gradual reveal of Natsume's life and how things have gotten better for him. Laughter and tears abound with this one.

  • Heartwarming and Uplifting!
    I didn’t know what to expect from this show. A slice-of-life, from my understanding, usually has relatable characters and focuses on themes that most people deal with on a day-to-day basis. This is exactly Natsume but with a paranormal twist.

    This is about a boy who has lost his parents at a very young age and is thrust into a world that doesn’t understand his pain and is mostly mocked for it. ...

  • A Must Watch Touching and Unique Anime
    Honestly, I only started watching this anime because of the cat character that I saw it had but as I kept watching I grew to love this anime more and more. It has great character development, unique characters, great story line, adorableness, and gives you a good laugh once in a while.

    This is the most touching, calming, and tear jerking anime I have ever watched. The creator's take on "youkai" ...

  • Continues to pull on all of my heartstrings.
    This Anime remains my favorite of the numerous shows I've watched on here. It resonated really well with feelings I've felt myself on numerous occasions. It makes you feel happy and sad all at once and throws in a few laughs here and there.

    I think I could relate to Natsume (and many of the spirits his grandmother never revisited), because I've always been a bit of a loner as well, but I still ...

  • 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 ...
