Natsume Yuujinchou Anime Review

fun anime

Natsume Yuujinchou is telling of the adventures of Natsume, a young man who can see spirits. A long time ago his grandmother, who had the same ability, defeated spirits and collected their names in a book called the “Book of Friends”. Any spirits whose names were written in this book had no choice but to serve whoever held it in their possession. When Natsume finds this book spirits try to attack him, some to get their names back and some to gain the power of the Book of Friends. He decides to try to release every spirit (excluding the evil ones) from the Book of Friends with the help of his bodyguard, Nyanko Sensei, a spirit who takes the form of a cat.

The storyline was very well done. It was quite basic, but it allowed for a good number of episodes of varying styles and purposes.

The majority of the characters were lively and interesting. While Natsume himself couldn’t be faulted, I still found my attention and favour was mostly drawn to Nyanko Sensei. After all this was what he was created to do. He was certainly the most entertaining character in this show and by far my favourite. I do wonder if my age could have affected my opinion of this character, however.

I would quite like to hear the opinions of all my readers to see if you felt the same way. So comment below and tell me what you thought of Nyanko Sensei.
