Years have passed and we finally have been graced with more of the emotionally gripping tale of the boy who can see yokai and helps them


We’re blessed that this show returned after a four year hiatus. It’s such a true adaptation of the wonderful manga and stays special!


Relaxing, and easy to watch. As usual for this series!


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


My favourite season of Natsume so far. Visuals have somehow become better and the story is still emotionally engaging and great.


I mean, it’s the fifth season already so of course I enjoy this series or else I would have stopped.


True sequel to the previous seasons. Great visuals, relaxing atmosphere and a light but clearly present story.



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