Peaceful and calm are probably the best adjectives for this week’s episode. There are some hints that Natsume is still thinking about his grandmother and that we’re going to find out more (mostly through the weird parallel that they track down the grandaughter of the guy they are looking for because she smells like him) but mostly this is a return to the formula of meet a yokai, realise it just wants help, and then frantically try and help it even after it gives up. We also get some interactions with Nishimura as he once again get’s his heart broken by a girl with a red umbrella (poor Taki). That said, the formula in this show works so why mess around with it? Still the preview for next week actually got me excited because they are bringing the exorcists back into the story and they always add a little bit of suspense and tension to an otherwise fairly relaxed viewing.
