Okay, if you haven’t watched the previous 5 seasons, there’s very little reason to care about season 6. However for everyone else, Natsume is back and he still sees Yokai and he is still stuck with Nyanko-Sensei. Let’s see what they get up to this season.
Episode 1 is as true to the formula of Natsume as you would expect. Natsume and Nyanko are out running an errand (yep, the cat ate the snacks again) and they run into a yokai. Natsume being Natsume helps him out and then gets turned into a much younger kid (too adorable).
We then get one of the better recaps of the main characters of a series I’ve seen as Nyanko-Sensei mentally runs through the options when seeking help before Taki and Tanuma show up (part of me wishes he’d gone to Natori because that would have been hilarious).
I’m sure I’ve said this before, but Natsume needs smarter friends. Their hearts are in the right place but sometimes they are a little thick. Despite that, things get resolved and we end on a happy note with Natsume and Nyanko having a nap side by side.
Anyway, this is a sweet and fun as it has always been so a great start to another season provided you are up for more of the same.

It was a very sweet episode to start the new season with.
It was kind of a perfect way to get us back into Natsume.
It’s Natsume – I am definitely up for most of the same. I didn’t realize a new episode was out though. It should be fun to watch them deal with a young Natsume.
And nice new header.
Thanks. Not sure if its staying (the header). I’m just playing with the blog given its been up for nearly a year and trying to decide if I need to change things or if I should just leave them alone.
I remember watching season 1 and 2. Didn’t realize there where now 4 other seasons. Looks like I should catch up.
If you liked 1 and 2, the rest are more of the same but we just keep learning more about the characters and getting more attached to them. Season 5 looks a little different (change in studio I think I remember reading or something) but it isn’t really an issue and season 6 looks exactly the same as season 5 did.
Oh, season 6 has started! Cool! I love Natsume Yuujincho 😊
