Synopsis

Ishi Okoshi
While searching for Nyanko-sensei, Takashi Natsume encounters meek and small-looking youkai Mitsumi. Mitsumi was entrusted by his leader Gantetsu, a powerful and strong ayakashi, to be the year's "Ishi Okoshi," whose role consists of waking him from his deep slumber. Seeing how much Mitsumi wants to prove himself as Gantetsu's worthy servant, Natsume decides to help him fulfill his task. However, time is running out—for they are not the only ones who want to awaken the divine being.

Ayashiki Raihousha
One day, Natsume's friend Kaname Tanuma is visited by a strange man. In the subsequent days, the visitor briefly talks with Tanuma and leaves. Natsume soon discovers that the outsider is a youkai disguised as a human, who claims to bear no danger. Despite trusting the youkai, Tanuma's health slowly begins to deteriorate, causing Natsume to become more suspicious of the interloper. What is the truth of his sudden appearance and his connection with Tanuma?

It's no doubt that natsume yuujinchou was a booming iyashikei franchise. Manga has been ongoing since 2005, 6 seasons of anime adaptations, No 36th in NHK top 100 anime series, and doing very well in manga selling stats. Now after almost 3 years of adaptation absence, Takashi-kun blessed us with a 2-parts movie this spring.

First part is about helping mitsumi the Ishi-okoshi to do his quest. I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Nice combination of comedy and heartwarming moments with a slight touch of drama. And I always welcomed more hinoe screentime.

Second part was interesting in its own way and opened up the relationship between two ...

I spent $13 watching this in the movies this evening (March 11 2021). Minor spoilers in this review.

Anyone who has watched the main series Should know that the mc deals with yokais by returning them their names. This movie had none of that.

This two episodes felt like the mc is a side character whose presence makes no difference.

The first part was about a yokai whom was tasked to wake another yokai up from his slumber. Not much action or drama. Mc just ran around with the yokai looking for the other yokai’s location. This part was boring given that most of the main series already ...

I know it's months late as almost all my Natsume reviews are but I hope you enjoy reading the review :D

Natsume Yuujinchou is one of the very very few anime I consider an art. Always coming up with new stories and adding intereseting characters without being repetitve nor forced. It has been like that for many years and I hope it continues to be so.

This "Movie" is pretty much 2 different OVAs combined together. The 2 stories are based on the same themes, trust and friendship, and that might explain why they were grouped together.

The first story is about an adorable little ...
