  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

    Surprised At How Great This Is!
    After reading the description of the show, I figured I might like to watch an episode here or there. However on a day when I didn't have class, I binge-watched the first two seasons. After doing a little checking I discovered that Natsume Yujin-cho is the first 3 seasons of the series and Crunchyroll has the fourth season titled Natsume Yujin-cho Shi. Probably become Shi is 4 in Japanese. I don't ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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.

  • 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 ...

  • The acceptance of "Home"
    Natsume yujin-cho left a huge impression on me, and everyone i know who's seen it had alluded to being as emotional about it as I have.

    I focused in on his alienation during his youth and struggle to find acceptance as a young adult because of his gift. As one of a few motifs running through the story, it lets us explore Natsume Takeshi's childhood and adolescence. He's kicked back and forth ...

  • A masterpiece hidden under simplicity!
    Natsume Yuujinchou is a wonderful story fulfilled with feelings and special bonds between characters, the story is entertaining with super natural and spiritual details but the real deal comes with the amazing ability it has to make you approach the characteracters in a short time... in the middle of action and drama you have kindness, warm feelings, friendship, mutual comprehension.. you learn to ...

  • Anime with a soul and a depth you don't always find in others.
    This anime has me on the verge of tears many times when I watch it. Youma in many other anime titles are at worst strictly evil and inherently bad creatures, and at best shown to be very static and unchanging. Natsume Yujin-cho personifies these youma. They have the qualities and traits of human beings. Natsume explores and helps these youma that were bound to his grandmother for one reason or ...
