I can live without romance in the series, but I definitely want to see Natsume learn how to be a functioning member of some kind of community of real humans.

I *don't* want Natsume to remain on the margin for the rest of his life. I don't really want him to go and live with the spirits exclusively -- although it would be cool if he became some kind of spirit-talker professionally.

Natsume has a conflict with society. He's isolated from it. Some anime characters with this conflict never resolve it - at least not by my standards. (E.g. the title character of Saishuu Heiki Kanojo was, as far as I can tell, always emotionally isolated and never truly connected to her fellow humans. This is not exactly falsifiable -- some people can point to the same evidence and say, no, no, she WAS emotionally connected there.)

I'd like to see that isolation resolved, one way or another. Even if Natsume never has close friends, I'd like to see him find some kind of stable social role.

I agree with that. I was talking purely about the romantic part. Romance would be too distracting for such a slow-paced relaxing series. I'm not saying that i don't want Natsume to become more open and connected with those around him. He certainly doesn't need to date in order to do that lol

Same, I'm not opposite for him being social. x]

I'm glad I'm not the only one who picked Tanuma...actually I'm kind of surprised so many people did. Nice job! *Complete with stupid thumbs up and winking pose.*

In all seriousness however, I agree with keeping the romance out of the series. You've got a good thing going here, don't change it up to the point it ruins it.

Personally, I don't think he should have romance. Yet at least. They should develope him more first, to be a bit more social. Then maybe have a very subtle thing going with someone maybe introduced early in the second season, but end it on that. People that come in late aren't worth it, since it'd kill the feel, and the current cast would also kill the feel.

Kaname Tanuma<3 ;P No, no, I'm not thinking it would be like Lockon/Tieria >_>

While it's true, Natsume doesn't seem to be interested in romance now and he has other things to do, I'd like for him to end up with Tanuma. They seem to get along well.

What? No Natori Shuuichi on this list?? But... He had ROSES in his backgrounds! And he caught Natsume in some kind of flowery meadow setting!

Haha, But in all seriousness, I like this show it has a unique feel, no particularly looking for romance in it. I kind of like the idea that Natsume grows up to be some kind of single mountain hermit that finds peace with the Youkai. Sort of like Ginko from Mushi-shi, but more happy.

That's all we need. Yaoi Themes in Natsume Yujinchou.

Haha, in the serious side though it seems everyone feels the romance is best left out.

Natsume/Jun ftw~

If it didn't happen and no romance came about, however, I'd be perfectly okay with it. Natsume Yuujinchou isn't an anime about two people in love but about people in love with life and all it has to offer.

It's a miracle he isn't wearing a straitjacket. People who have bad childhoods sometimes have problems connecting to *anybody* romantically.

Very true. I am one living example ^___^

I also want him to be able to come out of his "shell" a little more......but at the same time, I know it's kind of unrealistic expect him to fully come out. Resolving a conflict like Natsume's can take years, and is sometimes a very painful process......the anime itself being a testament to this.

I'm torn - on one hand, I want to see him fit in with other people better. On the other, watching an anime about his type of character is what attracts me to it. I don't want him to be ruined as a character for me!


EDIT: I love how Tanuma is beating Jun in the romance department. It's hilarious LOL. But aside from that, I'm glad the majority of voters don't want to see him romantically involved with anyone either.

I'm amazed no one has commented on his obvious connection with Tsubame. =o

I definitely wouldn't mind if there was no romance in the series at all, and Sasada is obviously a main character where Tsubame was a one-time character, but Tsubame is the only female to really develop a relationship with Natsume. They were holding hands, Natsume kept asking her to stick around, and he even cried for her when he saw the photo of her with the human who saved her.

She probably isn't the main love interest, because that seems unlikely, but I would argue that there were some kind of feelings between them. At least on his part.

I agree that he had some feelings for her. At the least he felt very attached to her.

Defiantly Kaname, this is just my opinion because I think the two make a cute couple. I just don't care for Jun she's just too loud and noisy for my taste.
What you saw at the castle on that windy night ,and what you saw at the bridge last night .. how I smiled, never utter a word to anyone. If you dare speak .. I will find where you are .. And I will kill you. Kill you. I will rip you apart .. crush your bones And eat your flesh.. I will drink your blood. I will .. devour you.

Apparently, Sasada moved away in the manga quite a while back, so any appearances that she's making now in the anime is all filler. Quite a few fans would probably be majorly annoyed if she's made into the primary love interest, in that media. I dislike Sasada as a character, even. I think she's just being kept around for humorous purposes.

Overall, I don't think it's 'that' kind of anime, and romance doesn't really need to a part of it. I certainly think Natsume and Tanuma have something, but it doesn't have to be overtly sexual or anyting. Since it's primarily aimed towards a shoujo demographic, a little shounen-ai wouldn't surprise me. I think Natsume needs to love himself properly, first. Any romance in the series now, with anyone, would seem strangely out of place.

Natsume will develop an alter ego and falls in love with himself, lol. I wrote a ridiculous thing here. Anyhow, no for Sasada. She's absolutely ... not interesting. I don't think we'll ever find some love in here and if there is, it will be platonic. That's called friendship, and as Natsume isn't really open yet, that's my guess.

Considering that it's a shojo manga (and i'm a yaoi fan xD), I think it's might be Tanuma, but Jun also has a chance. ;3

it's not gonna be either of the choices, i think it's kinda obvious ^^; there might be temporary attachment, but does anyone honestly think that Natsume will get a serious love interest? it won't happen. i certainly hope it won't. it has to focus on the relationship between youkai and humans, and youkai and Natsume, otherwise it's not Natsume Yuujinchou anymore.

i agree, i think in either ep 1 or 2 he says how he always has to say good bye and its sad when he does.

i think all the episodes will be like that. because of what he can do, he isnt letting anyone close to him.

maybe near the end of the series he will actually over come this fear (refer to episode 3) and allow people to come closer to him.

hehe

I voted 'None of the above' a few months ago, but I am totally regretting it now, because I turned a fan of NatsumeXTaki coupling after watching ep 7....sigh.

Personally I don't think he has any romantic love interest (at least by manga canon).
Voted for Natori Shuuichi as 'PLATONIC BROTHERLY' love interest. Hey, it's different from homolust, 'kay? *snerk*

I think romance would ruin the series a bit.
But But But...I think Mandara. Girl form and I think he is liking Natsume in more than just the food/book of friends department.

Nobody. ^-^ This anime should stay away from romance. O_O

But if I have to pick, I would choose Nyanko sensei! Seriously, they act like a couple most of the time. lol XD And also Tanume (being the yaoi fangirl that I am). He's just too sweet, especially that scene where he caught Natsume just as he was falling.
