Natsume Supporter Battle – Final Thoughts

Irina (I Drink and Watch Anime) and I had a fantastic time on the series of posts where we put the support cast of Natsume to the test (although mostly we tested our own ability to make hard choices and eliminate characters from the contest). If you missed any of these posts, check out my … Continue reading Natsume Supporter Battle – Final Thoughts

Just Because Episode 4: When You Break Through A Wall, Sometimes All You Get Is A Broken Wall

Review: I remember when Tsuki ga Kirei was on and how many people kept saying how real and relatable it felt but I never really got that vibe. That's probably because I'm catching it from Just Because. Watching Soma build up again to a confession is painful but the show isn't. This is seeing the … Continue reading Just Because Episode 4: When You Break Through A Wall, Sometimes All You Get Is A Broken Wall

Overview: After six seasons now, most of us know the story. If you are new to Natsume, check out the review of seasons 1 - 4 and the review of season 5.

This episode resumes the hunt for the study and as usual Natsume's keen eyes and a deeper understanding of yokai and those who can clearly see yokai find the necessary clues that eventually lead the group to the study door. That said, Natori … Continue reading Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 11

Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 10

Review: Is there really only one more episode of this? Really? And the next season is...? 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 … Continue reading Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 10

Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 9

Review: Natsume returned to its usual episodic formula this week. No returning characters of old, no Reiko flashbacks, just a strange shrine on a hill and a flood inside a building. That said, this isn't a bad thing as Natsume uses its episodic format to its advantage creating a charming self-contained narrative even as the … Continue reading Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 9
