Natsume Yuujinchou is an anime with no need of a straight story line. It has its unique way of representing the story to the viewers. The whole anime is based around the main protagonist and his ability to see youkais. With each episode you get a new and refreshing story about Natsume and his surroundings. This anime is not only showing one side of Natsumes life it shows its flaws and beauties mixed with the existence of the youkais that definetley play a big part in it. Storywise you could compare it with Mushishi. Natsume Yuujinchou finds the perfect mix between the genre of an Adventure and a Slice of Life. With each episode you get to see new people and new youkais.

You have the humans on the one hand and then you have the youkais on the other hand! It's fascinating to see that each Character has its own personality and this is something that makes Natsume Yuujinchou interesting, different and worth to watch. Some characters may appear for only one episode but trust me 20 min will be enough to bond with them. Some characters reappear more often but it wont get boring, because with each episode you get to know them better. Natsume himself is a very grown, natural and warmhearted protagonist. It may take a few episodes but you'll love him and you'll stick with him till the end. A big plus is that youkais are able to communicate, it makes the anime more relevant and it points out on the importance of the youkais.

Music wise I personally can't find anything bad. The music is very calm and warm it even fills the coldest heart with purity and love. Each episode has its perfect fitting music, may it be a sad, happy, dangerous or whatever moment. I'm a big fan of the OP and ED of Natsume Yuujinchou and with every season they bring something new and relaxing. The animation of Natsume Yuujinchou is not the best, BUT it fits in its own way. This anime has its warmness and gentleness partly because of his animations and his style. Some scenes may appear too normal compared to the situation but it gives you the chance to focus on the beautiful music in the background. Boom it harmonizes well! Music and animation together - breathtaking.

Natsume Yuujinchou is not the normal anime you usually watch. It's a ball full of emotions when you need some break from all the casual stuff and just want to enjoy, not just an anime, but enjoy life and yourself. Natsume Yuujinchous best thing is not having a straight story line, making it perfect to watch everytime and everywhere you feel like. I highly recommend everyone who likes either Supernatural, Slice of Life or Drama genres to watch Natsume Yuujinchou! Hopefully you'll enjoy it like I did :)
The Sequels just getting better and better.
