Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 10

Review:

Is there really only one more episode of this? Really? And the next season is…?

NatsumeS6E10b

For a second last episode of the season, episode 10 of Natsume Yuujinchou pulled out all the punches. We are dealing with exorcists again and Natori most definitely did not forget about the Book of Friends.

That said, this episode seems to be positioning us to see him as an actual friend and given he’s been covered in shades of grey as to where his true motives lie for a fair while it would be nice to think that is true. Though there’s always the chance of another twist in the tale.

But in case exorcists searching a mansion for a study full of spells while Natori gently probes Natsume for hints about what he has via Hiiragi is not enough to keep you entertained in what is normally a much more relaxing story, lets throw in some Reiko stuff just to bring everything together. About the only part of Natsume’s life that gets left out here is his normal school life and normal human friends but that probably would have been pushing it to incorporate that as well.

That said, though, this is another two parter story so we’ll just have to wait until next week to see how this all plays out but I couldn’t be happier with how this season seems to be finishing up. My only complaint is that it is finishing.

  1. I love this show, and I never want it to end. At the pace it’s moving, we’ll probably (hopefully) get a few more seasons :).. As always, thanks for sharing your thoughts on it.

  2. I am…not ready for this season to end. At all.

    As for Natori, I really don’t know how to think of him and am just waiting for the show to do its thing. I loved that little moment of self-acceptance Natsume had this episode and also that bit about Reiko’s home. I’m curious about her life too – how’d she go from being a complete recluse to having a kid? I remember one of the episodes mentioning a guy who caught her attention by caring for her safety but that’s it.

    1. Yes, still so many Reiko questions and yet it doesn’t feel like the show is just deliberately withholding information. We see what we need to see at an appropriate time and it all feels very natural and organic rather than forced into the story.

I'd love to know what you think.
