  • 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 ...

  • A Slow Paced But Great Experience
    Natsume Yujin-cho is a four season anime adaptation of the fantasy manga of the same name written by Yuki Midorikawa. This work is known as Midorikawa's most successful work. The anime adaptation was taken by the studio Brains Base, which has made many known series such as Spice and Wolf, and D-Frag. Natsume Yujin-cho follows a boy named Takashi Natsume, who has the ability to see yokai. But ...

  • 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.

  • One of the best anime out there
    I could not get enough of this anime. The story line, the animation, and the characters are perfect. My hat is off to Yuki Midorikawa for creating such a masterpiece... My Favorite Character is Nyanko-Sensei, a pudgy (Lucky cat) cat on the outside and Madara on the inside (a powerful demon lord). The little fox demon that follows Natsume is just too adorable.. One word can describe this anime and ...

    A definite gem worth your time.
    On it's surface, this slice of life seems nothing but serene, but with superb character progression and continuously forming relationships, Natsume Yuujinchou presents the hard path one is forced to take to respect two opposing worlds. Much in the spirit of Mushishi, Takashi has a progressing intimacy and bond with creatures that few can see, and others may despise. It's heartwarming and ...

  • Light-Hearted, Light-Humored, Feel-Good Anime
    This series was absolutely fantastic. Light-hearted and light-humored, with fun characters and an interesting story. I loved most things about the series, except for a few. There were some underdeveloped characters. questions left unattended to, and a few plot holes left open, but all in all, it was a sort of feel-good story. Addictive.

  • Surprisingly Lovely!
    Natsume's Book of Friend's moves at a seemingly slow pace but that is actually adds to the overall feel of the anime. It consists of a touching storyline with remarkable character development. Adding an amazing soundtrack to all the above makes this a must watch anime.

  • Lovely and wonderful show!
    Lovely show, can't recommend enough! The character are personable, and you really see the main character Nastume grow throughout the show. It is written in such a way that you can't help but get attached to the characters! No fan service and very low violence, so it is something the whole family can watch!
