    An anime that stands out
    Natsume Yujincho centers around Natsume and his evolving relationship with the youkais and humans around him. It is relaxing and heart-warming, something that you would love to watch after a tiresome day. The show has a lot of depth, and it differs from other youkai stories by having the youkai experience the same emotions as a human.

    Except for the ability to see youkai, Natsume is normal. He ...

    Relaxing yet interesting!
    Contains Spoiler

    If you're looking to get away from all these suspense dramas, thrillers, romantic stories where the love triangle seems to never end, I would say Natsume Yujinchou is a great way to do so. With each episode being almost a one-shot of a character's different tale, it all ties down to a beautiful tale of how a boy is able to grow with acceptance of his own abilities, along ...

    Natsume Yujincho takes the gold!
    among all of the animes and manga out there a nice group of them are about spirits and things closely related to them. Natsume Yujincho stands out in the fact that the heroin is all but flashy, not love struck, and very grounded. As well as the support and side characters. i personally like how calm the colors are in comparison to the brightness of Inuyasha. this series is one of the better in ...

    Of Daemons, And Man.
    Natsume Yujincho, or, Natsume's Book of Friends, is a beautiful thing amongst the common monotony of recent animation endeavors that come to mind, and has a brilliantly simple shine.

    To elaborate, there are no overly wrought character relations with constant flashbacks or pseudo-quasi-heavy dialog, no excessively grand plots that are dragged out to the point of tedium, and somehow a distinctive ...

  • powerful, heartfelt drama
    Great show. If you're not into slower dramas however, you'll probably be disappointed with this one.
    Storyline:
    This is about a high school kid who can see youkai (spirits). While many around him think him too soft or nice, his strength comes from this allowing him to form bonds with some of the most belligerent youkai. Each episode explores his connection with the youkai, and is like a ...

    Beautiful and Bittersweet
    As I watched this very beautifully animated series, I found myself continually describing it as bittersweet. The stories of the youkai tug at your heart, and illustrate the struggle of humans and spirits to make connections and find their way.

    Interestingly, the structure of the series is episodic, unusual for anime, but each episode gives you a new, touching story as Natsume meets and deals ...

    A Breath of Fresh Air
    This series is such a breath of fresh air. The characters were great and the plot was very engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed it and especially enjoyed Madara. The basic story line revolves around Natsume; a boy in high school with the ability to see spirits. He inherits his grandmother's book which is the target of many demons. I won't describe anymore because I feel that only witnessing the series ...

    Anime that touches the heart and emtions
    I watched this anime a few times. It has a nice character development and brings out a calming feeling that most animes don't have. It’s something that is enjoyable to watch. Most of the episode always pulls out one of your emotions either if its sadness, clam, happy, etc.. (A warm feeling inside. That may just be me though.) After watching over hundreds of anime, so far this one is the most ...

  • Where did this come from?
    surprised I haven't heard any buzz about this series. I hadn't heard anything about this series until I randomly chose it. I'm glad I did its got a lot going for it. The art work is great, the music fits the scenes amazingly well, and the premise of the entire series is fairly solid. It even balances humor with heart jerking moments.
