Natsume’s Book of Friends Volume 15 Review

Striving Toward Impossible Goals With most of my reviews of the various volumes of Natsume's Book of Friends I've tried to find a common theme that links the stories or ideas. Unfortunately I came up short in volume 15. Not because the volume isn't great, but because each story has its own distinct tone. That … Continue reading Natsume’s Book of Friends Volume 15 Review

Midnight Occult Civil Servants Review Episode 8

A Supernatural Stroll Through Tokyo Episode 8 There was something pleasantly subdued about the episode this week.

Relying on and Reaching Out To Others We all know Natsume is a bit cut off emotionally. Volume 12 does an excellent job of showcasing the relationships he's forged as well as pushing him to realise he cannot do everything alone and nor does he really want to.
