Natsume and his bodyguard Madara, nicknamed Nyanko-sensei, continue on their quest to release youkai from their contracts in the "Book of Friends."

Friends aren’t defined so simply as Natsume becomes closer to humans and yokai alike.


natsume’s is good and will always be good. just give it a shot. it’s sort of slow and gentle but always brilliant and always heartfelt.


When “list your top 25 anime” was a trend on this site Natsume was on half the lists I saw—for good reason! It’s excellent in every aspect!


Emotionally engaging and gentle tale of friendship, kindness and love, infused with warmth and appreciation for life, nature and family.

Always a relaxing show, perfect for late nights and being reminded of the value of relationships, especially those in front of us.


Amazing extension to the series, please watch this series!
