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. As much as I love this show, diving in at season 6 is definitely going to make this a fairly complex story as … Continue reading Natsume Yuujinchou Roku Series Review

Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 11

natsumes6e11b

Review - Some spoilers: Can we get a season 7 announcement, please? 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

Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 8

Review: After consecutive weeks of returning characters, season 6 delivered a yokai of the week story that went a different direction to what I was expecting. When Natsume first met the strange boy at the station, I suspected he'd be a yokai, but I didn't expect that Natsume would simply tell him that he should … Continue reading Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 8

Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 7

natsumes6e7

Review: Usually I love episodes with Reiko. Other than Natori, she's the character I most hope to see an appearance from outside of Natsume and Nyanko Sensei. That said, this season's Reiko episode kind of lacked bite. Part of the issue might be the yokai at the start of the episode that chases Natsume who … Continue reading Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 7

Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 2

natsumes6e2c

Review: I don't even know why Natsume reiterates the point that getting involved with unknown yokai is a bad idea. After 6 seasons we know he's going to get involved so he may as well just accept that fact. Still, after last week really only mentioning past characters in passing, this week Natsume's school friends, … Continue reading Natsume Yuujinchou Season 6 Episode 2
