Natsume Yujin-cho 5



This is the review for the 5th season of Natsume Yu-jin. I started with this season so I can tell you that you don’t need to watch the first 5 season for this to make sense but it’s a good idea.

We follow Natsume Takashi, a teenager who has the ability to see yokai’s like his grandmother. Though not an exorcist he interacts with the yokais and makes friends with them. Why his grandmother was younger, she had created her book of friends and now Takashi gives back the names to the yokais you ask.

This slice of life anime is very episodic. So though there are a couple of overarching stories as life isn’t neatly split up into nice little stories, it is still mainly episodic. The character design for the yokais are very interesting and the human characters, though not the focus of the story, are well developed. I love this series and can’t wait for the 6th season to come out.
