Suzunaru no Kirikabu
On a hot summer day, Takashi Natsume and his feline companion Madara take a walk to buy jelly. Suddenly a truck passes the two, running over an old, masked man who asks Natsume for help. The mysterious individual turns out to be a youkai, the spirit of the Suzunaru tree that was recently hit by lightning and cut down. As the tree withers away, the youkai requests Natsume to fulfill his one final wish: to bring him water every day until he draws his last breath.

Mugen no Kakera
Tamami, a young schoolgirl, counts her steps through a forest, following instructions on a piece of paper. She stops to take a break and falls asleep but is awakened by an odd talking cat. Through meeting the cat and his human partner, Natsume, she learns that the forest has its own separate world from the contemporary, where one can see things otherwise invisible. Putting her trust in the duo, Tamami tells them about the story of how she helped a white owl that reappeared in her dreams to lead her back inside the bizarre forest.

“ Sayonara. ”

A single word filled with so many emotions.

Surprisingly, Natsume takes a backseat in these two stories, being a small contributor to the plot that focuses on one important thing - promises.

First episode is on the promise that an old youkai of Suzunaru tree made with a human in the festival night, which he seeks help from Natsume to find out what it was before he fades away ...

For being just two episodes, these specials pack a powerful emotional punch, right to the feels. I'll analyze them separately.

In the first we have a typical setup for Natsume at this point. He meets a youkai who once had an interaction with a human, and decides to take pity on him and help him reunite with said human. Only problem is the old youkai can't remember so good anymore, so Natsume spends the episode investigating. Through exposition from the Fujiwara's he learns that the old youkai was famous for the way he could make the leaves on his tree sound like bells when they shook. ...
