,My Thoughts:

First off, viewers should realize that Natsume is based off a non-romance shoujo manga. So if you’re expecting fast paced storyline, and plenty of action… you’re looking at the wrong place. I realized as soon as I saw the previews, and learned about it’s shoujo origins, that this would be a show that you’re supposed to relax to. Brains Base does another wonderful job animating, and the show really does have the relaxed artistic feel.
The story is very Miyazaki-like. The main character, Natsume, embarks on a quest to return the names of youkai (or spirits) that his grandmother captured. Along the way, he’ll learn more about not only his grandmother, but also about the youkai’s past, and how his grandmother affected it.
The title literally translates to “Natsume’s Book of Friends”, so that by itself should give you an idea about the pace of the show. Also, don’t trust the rating on MAL, it’ll probably go up after the hardcore shounen fans will drop it.
