THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well I streamed this episode live from Japan so I can't tell much from the low quality.

I can only tell that a mirror of some sort is used.

Next time, I'll just wait for the subs.....

It's already out now subbed.

It was a good episode. ^^ Natsume realises he'd be lonely without seeing youkai, which is totally different from the beginning of the anime and I think it's good he finally relised he liked them.

Taki would be a good match for Natsume I think. =)

natsumextaki

i really hope taki is going to be a somewhat active character from now on. i really like her lol "omg....hes so cuuuuuuttteeee!!! i just want to hold him >.< but NO i must resist!!"

if taki turns out to be one of those other characters (extremely minor) im going to be sad even worse if theres absolutely no romance between them!!!
at least taki needs to have a crush on natsume lol

totally agree, much better match for him than the other girl. but honestly i don't think it'll happen. everyone in this series is a minor character except for Natsume and Madara.

kinda wished she'd lost control and tried to hug Madara, would have liked to have seen his reaction XD

This was such a good episode. They dealt with the atmosphere so well that I was worried just what was going to happen. Madara staying in his form so he would know for sure when Natsume got his sight back was so good. Even in episodes like this when its centered around a whole other character, they manage to develop Natsume and Nyanko's relationship. The end was the perfect amount of denoument, and I thought the bit between Mousetache and Madara was hilarious.

Actually, the episode used screen time very effectively. Just playing up the tension was an economical way of telling the story.

What I really want to see is Taki feeling similar tension for Natsume, then losing control and giving him a FIRST-O KISS-U.

Natsume is so incredibly calm it's like he's about to slip into catatonia all the time. Taki needs to somehow get him interested in her before she can be his girlfriend.

I totally want to see NatsumeXTaki though. There are six episodes left. I demand to see an on-screen kiss. Do you hear me, animation team? Do you hear me, writing staff?

...

[sound of crickets]
Okay, I guess they can't hear me.

I totally loved this episode!!! It has a good mix of everything... suspense, comedy and the relaxing slice-of-life feeling that we all love.

First time Natsume couldn't see youkai. The scene of him looking around his room for Nyanko-sensei in his ayakashi form (Madara) may be simple but it carries so much emotional depth. It would be really, really, really sad if one day, he couldn't see them anymore, forever...

LOL Nyanko-sensei moments:
- Taki vs Nyanko-sensei. Her inner battle is really funny.
- Natsume: "Sensei suddenly looks reliable! My eyes really are screwed up!" XD

Great episode - it was a good insight to how Natsume would react when he couldn't see the youkai and how he felt lonely when he ciuln't see Nyanko-sensei X3

good end to conclude the previous episode and a developing friendship between Taki & Natsume

A really good episode. I liked seeing the way Madara curled round him and how all his new friends walked to school with him. It would be nice to see some romance but I think its too late now.

I prefer Natsume and Taki just as they are, friends. I wouldn't enjoy any romance in such a great show like this one; if I wanted something like that, I would be watching a harem or some other annoying Shoujo. Anyway, I really enjoyed these past two episodes, they were very entertaining and, even if not touching like most of them, it was very interesting. The curse thing and, more importantly, Natsume being unable to see Youkais for the very first time in the whole series. And Madara watching over him in the end, just priceless!

It seems Natsume gained a new friend. I'm happy for him.

And he realized that he would feel lonely without Sensei and other Youkai.

These two episodes have been wonderful. The suspense and drama were played out nicely without being pretentious and the ending gave such a warm feeling. The ED was especially fitting for this episode.

Hell yeah, don't mess with Madara and Natsume. I wonder if Natsume would win if he stayed behind and fight instead of running... I mean, like Reiko, he is quite powerful. This youkai is the only one so far to be able to withstand 1 punch from Natsume.

I knew Nyanko cared a lot of Natsume despite his sharp mouth, this episode really shown their friendship very well especially when Natsume can't see.

Superb episode just as the last one! I loved Taki from second we saw her and I hope for a possible romance, or even hints if anything. But sadly I doubt it will happen, but I can hope :D

This show really is a lovely little gem.

Natsume realized that he felt lonely when not being able to see youkai… He seemed so desperate, something that grew to be very important to him, in contrast to in the beginning, was missing. It would be sad if he loses the ability to see youkai.

While I like Taki and all, I don’t want any romance, Natsume Yuujinchou is supposed to be about friendship and the romance would get in the way. Everything’s perfect as it has been until now.

Madara looking out for him while slept was really touching. He does care about Natsume.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

NISHIMURA ATTACK! XD

Great episode! It was actually pretty tense for a while there. A bit unusual for a yokai to be so bad, but I guess he was made of evil energy. =/
Loved the bit with Madara watching over Natsume. He acts like he doesn't care about Natsume at all, but it seems Nyanko-sensei is a bit of a softie deep down. >=}
I also like how concerned Natsume and Taki were about not wanting to make the other feel bad. Of course one can go too far with this (as Natsume has learned over the course of the series), but I kind of wish people were like this more.

The scene where Natsume can't see Madara in his room is very touching, one of my favourites from this season. I love to see Nyanko-sensei without sneering facade, all serious, concerned and caring for Natsume deeply.

As for Taki, she might be a good friend, but I don't see her and Natsume as a pairing at all. To be honest, I hope this anime NEVER goes into Natsume+anyone romance. It's not needed.

Superb and brilliant episode. Comedy, suspense, drama and the slice of life feel are perfectly done in this ep.

I laughed so hard when Nyanko-sensei posed like Doraemon with his gadget. ROFL

And the sealing scene iss probably the most intense scene so far.

Also, the character developments of Tooru and Madara with Natsume are well delivered.

What else can I say? This show is simply amazing..

Nyanko-sensei was seriously creepy in the beginning of the 1st season. Now he's funny, cute and fking awesome (when in ayakashi form). I love him.
I love Natsume too. He felt lonely without the youkai... T~T

Love this series. <3

I don't know why, but the song when it shows the preview for the next episode reminds me of Clannad.

Anyway, the highlight of the episode for me was when Madara was watching over Natsume while he was sleeping.

I think a little bit of romance would actually improve things, and Taki is just the person to do it. She's cute, brave, and isn't immediately afraid of the unseen world--unless Natsume wants a relationship with a youkai I doubt he will do any better.
Please don't feed the trolls!

I liked that episode very much... The eye-to-eye confrontation between Taki and Nyanko-sensei was hilarious :D It's strange that even Madara went all serious when he got cursed... I thought that he fears mostly no one =\ That Moustache youkai is probably at his level though. Taki is so sweet but probably it's true that she'd better stay as friend with him cause Natsume Yuujinchou is better as it is - no romance included. At least for now.

Nice conclusion to this story though one thing bothers me. Natsume has all these yokai friends who know curses and other spells and he also knows Natori who works as an exorcist; you'd think he would learn how to defend himself with some sort of weapon or spell but nope. I mean I understand Nyan-ko Sensei is his bodyguard but a pretty half-ass one, so it'd be cool if he could learn to defend himself.

Just my little gripe about Natsume, but this was still a nice episode with a new character part of Natsume's growing friend group.

Nyanko-sensei caring for Natsume is really touching, I almost cried when Natsume couldn't see him as Madara. Natsume was always alone because of his ability to see youkai, but when he couldn't see Madara or Chobi, he seemed just as lonely as before. Ah, the irony ;_;

I'm glad Natsume made another friend! He and Taki seem to get along well with each other, and it's good that there's actually someone who knows about his ability to see youkai. Also, the part where Nyanko-sensei and Chobi are fighting is so funny! X)

Well, this latest episode concludes the brief arc. I liked the way it ended.

Lol'd @ her trying to resist Madara's cuteness. Anyways, it looks like everything is back to normal again. That mustache spirit was kinda strange tbh.

Nice conclusion to this short story but well quite lovely story, I wonder if that character has a bigger role in the overall story than just this short arc! Either way this sure was lovely so let's see what's next!

Very good episode. Nyanko-sensei taking care of Natsume in his other form was touching. Idk but I'd expect Touko-san to start to get worried of Natsume coming home tired.

The part where Natsume couldn't see Nyanko when he switched to his true form was sad as hell. You could just feel the loneliness in the air. It was heartbreaking.

This was a really nice episode. I'm enjoying these more and more.
