Ratings & Reviews
Great anime, Great release!
by Ian -
The price may be a little overwhelming given that it is only twelve episodes with no English dub, but it does include both the Blu-rays and the DVDs. The case is very nice as well. It is a clear case with two of those flipping disc holders that put one disc on each side, as opposed to the season one standard release which didn't have any of the disc holders and there was just one slot for all four discs to stack on top of each other. The quality of picture is very nice as well, and it looks great on the shelf.
A Supernatural Slice-Of-Life
by Rokka -
I love Natsume’s Book of Friends and I sincerely hope that NIS America will license Season 5 and 6 in the future. This is an anime that explores Natsume’s relationship with yokais and his struggles to fit into the human world. This is a gentle and slow paced series with a balance of drama and comedy. The use of pastel colours and the rural setting contribute to a slice-of-life feel to it.
Characters who can see yokais are not treated as misifts in other anime. Typically, they are revered as saviors or lauded for their supernatural abilities. Natsume conceals his powers in order to lead a normal life. The episodes that delve into his past are sometimes the hardest to watch since they reveal his loneliness and his treatment at the hands of callousness relatives. However, the harshness of his past is balanced by the kindness and warmth in his present life with his new family (the Fujiwaras), friends and allies.
Anime for the Soul
I am going to leave basically what I wrote for season 1&2 and 3 as there really isn't must else to say about this series.
I will however add that the Blu-Ray's look sooo much better!
So to recap,
This should be on everyone's must watch list.
It is one of those series that you can just relax watch and enjoy.
It follows a boy who can see Yokai "Japanse ghosts". Most episode's have their own little story which is nice so you don't have to binge watch until you get to a filler episode.
It still amazes me how each episode can just pull you into the story and really make you feel for whats going on.
I enjoy this series so much I bought the full package so that I could share it with my friends and family.
I hope it will end up as one of those very special anime's for you aswell.
