  • 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 ...

  • 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.
