Average Rating

As with its prequel, Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou is about Takashi Natsume, a boy who has had the ability to see youkai since he was young, and his bodyguard youkai Madara, nicknamed Nyanko-sensei. Natsume attempts to return names written in his "Book of Friends" (which he inherited from his grandmother Reiko) to youkai in his village. Throughout these adventures, he meets some youkai that are friendly, some that want to steal the Book, and some that want to kill him, as Natsume learns about himself and his relationship with these mysterious beings along the way.

Natsume’s journey progresses slowly and steady as he comes to terms with his dual life.


Second season of Natsume, my favorite series. It only gets better and more heartwarming! I seriously cannot recommend it enough.


Really good, cute, dramatic, happy, loveable characters. Got it all!


A great sequel that continues the well executed daily life adventures with youkai that Natsume experiences.


This was a great season. It was less focused on The book of friends, but on Natsume getting friends. THIS IS THE SECOND SEASON.


Great continuation of the series, seems a little repetitive, but each episode is still unique enough to be enjoyable


Natsume, as before, is a heart wrenching tale that politely asks for your attention. Episodes are breezy and calming. Easy viewing.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
