I liked the character of Ogata immediately, she has a Natori-poster and a Kappa-pluchedoll.

I say he goes with taki, she knows how to see yokai, altho this new girl seems understanding enough.

Great episode. I'd also like it if he and Ogata did meet again someday.

Never fails, this show always makes me smile.

It was refreshing to take a look at Natsume's past. Reminds me of how much more sociable he's become, too.

Better than the ones before but still too obvious at times, e.g. stuff like "a woman that smelled like alcohol", yeah poor Natsume and his terrible family full of suckers again..

I bet he had a good view here ;)

You are so watching this show for the wrong reasons dude, holy crap >_>

This was very nice. How sad that Natsume was just too busy trying to run from youkais so he never had a chance to fit in.

A good ninety percent of the episode was made of flashbacks, yet it was so wonderfully executed that I lost track of time and didn’t want it to end. The double perspective was a neat added trait to the storytelling.

This is the first episode in four seasons we’ve seen someone else’s —well, I correct, someone-that-is-not-a-youkai’s— point of view on their relationship with a younger Natsume. Yuriko is a really nice girl. I’m glad she is there to prove that not everything in Natsume’s past is sad and lonely; that he met a person like her, whom he could get along with despite the things he had to keep inside; and most importantly, that she cared deeply about him – Natsume himself held those memories of her as well. I love that.

Aw, that Natori poster. I want to see him again soon, please.
The small youkai was like a little doll, cute~
Natsume’s messy hair~ I’d offer to cut it for him any day.

I hope Yuriko and Natsume get to meet each other again at some point ♥

Next episode seems to have many hilarity moments. Next week, come fast~
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

Loved the dual perspective bit, and the twist that they actually didn't meet in the end was a quite a bit of a surprise, but a good idea nonetheless as it showed the idea of the whole life goes on thing with the series. Still, I want them to meet again eventually. Maybe at some point, Natori would ask Natsume to work with him again on another job where they'd need to travel to Ogata's town. Maybe have Tanuma and Taki tag along. That would be fun. XD

Looking forward to the next episode with another Yokaii taking over Natsume.

Another strong episode. I find the dual perspective narration done well.

And to think it's from a girl that could be Natsume's love interest. I demand more romance! XD

Another flashback episode, and a good one at that. Ogata, one of the only people who took the initiative in trying to understand Natsume, was a breath of fresh air. I like her a lot right away, and even more after seeing the kind of character she was. I was expecting Natsume to take the "clingbug" back to the other town, where he and Ogata would see each other again. I was really hoping they'd meet, like the other flashback episode with the Youkai girl in the tree, and I was left with a kind of sad and empty feeling when they didn't.
Still, her hearing about him, and that he was happy, and Natsume wishing that the people in that town would hear he was happy at the same time was an unexpected and beautiful ending.

It's nice to know that there were people like Ogata who have positive memories of Natsume, and who he also has positive memories of.

Yes. I love that she stood up for Natsume and that he smiled. <3

And I liked his hair, even though it was a bit messy.
I loved how she was observant and smart.

I love Natsume's flashbacks. <3

I love his smile. <3

This, and I'm a straight male. I can't have enough of the soothing atmosphere of this anime, and how he can smile faintly yet heartily after all that's happened in his life so far. And they would make a perfect couple, though I doubt there'll be actual romance in this anime.

I swear with every episode I grow to love Natsume more, and more!

Where he goes, he's blamed for most bad things happening around him, called a liar too. I am really grateful when someone decides to understand him better, whether human or youkai. Natsume doesn't ever complain either, and yet makes the very most of the friends he has and treasures them.. Natsume is truly a wonderful person, isn't he?

I thought it was really sweet that he decided to go back to check on the little "clingbug" youkai, and protected it too.

Ogata is so sweet, I was glad when she stuck up for Natsume. It's unfortunate that they couldn't have developed more of a friendship, the goodbye was pretty sad :(
