THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well this was an interesting episode. Natsume getting caught in monster affairs but not only that but, one of the youkai has connection with Reiko from the past.

I got some melancholic feels from the episode.

Meeting two different types of ayakashi, as always. First the evil ones, who stole his voice, and later met seem to be good but cannot understand words. Nyanko-sensei to the rescue. The good one seems to be lonely without his grandma.

Ayakashi friends at least told him who that evil one was. The good one came instead. He wants his name returned so that he can leave that place where no one's there. He was there only because he was waiting for grandma. Evil ones also came and Nyanko-sensei came to the rescue again. Oh, that drawing that making people dizzy was a game taught by grandma.

No new ep. next week. This will be aired instead. Onsen trip among guys next ep.

Natsume losing his voice was troublesome but it all worked out in the end.
The Youkai this time was a bit strange but she was having a lot of fun.

My tears betrayed me on that Reiko flasback... ; ; she looked so lonely there, yet she had fun, too... Ugh, we really need more of Reiko's backstory.

I loved this week's episode. This youkai is probably one of my favorite one, she's so adorable, and so happy! it made my heart ache when she bid farewell to Natsume at the end... Hope she finds another lively place.

Natsume looked so cute this episode, omg <3

I hope next week's OVA doesn't actually count as episode 7, but I wouldn't be surprised.
I think I will rewatch Itsuka Yuki no Hi ni OVA instead ^^

Wonderful episode.

Poor Natsume getting his voice sealed.

Hidaka is hilarious spinning Nyanko Sensei around.
LOL Sleep Naked.

Nice to see Hinoe, One-Eye & the Bull Youkai again.
Would love to see Nyanko Sensei transform into Natsume again.
So nice to see Reiko & Hidaka play a game together.

Those hairy Youkai messed with the wrong Noble Youkai.
Nyanko Sensei is way too awesome.

Nyanko Sensei focused episode next week. YAY!!!

It won't. It counts as "Tokubetsu-hen" (Special ep.), instead of regular ep.

Natsume was so cute writing out what he needed to say, but I can't imagine him being mute ( it just makes his backstory more sad than it already was :( )
Hidaka was such a cute youkai! Wanting to play and being lively :) I'm glad Reiko had some fun too, but still sad at the same time because she had no human friensd to play this game :(
Wished Nyanko sensei had eaten those hairballs, they had it coming for sealing Natsume's voice !
Overall, nice ep :)

This week's youkai was super cute. I felt pretty choked up when watching how excited it was to play such a simple game with Reiko.

Looking forward to the nyanko-sensei special episode!

I was worried they would end up dragging out the whole misunderstanding regarding Reiko the whole episode. I'm glad that didn't end up happening.

At this point, I seriously have to wonder how many names are still in the Book of Friends, and it saddens me that there are so many Youkai who simply do no know that time has passed for humanity and that Reiko has passed on; that's always been the saddest part of this series for me.

Another lovely episode. TThat Nyanko-sensei wanting to change into Natsume again lol
The whole losing voice was pretty interesting. That scene where the youkai moves on had a very nice background track.
Them puff balls thought they were tough but then they saw Sensei's real form and they ran back scared lol
Cool to see the other 3 youkai pay Natsume a visit.

Izaya realizing how Celty feels.

Yet another excellent episode. Toukou-san is such a loving parent to Natsume. Every time Natsume blushed I realized how grateful he might be to the Fujiwaras.

Reiko-san's flashback was so sad. She must have been so lonely. :(

Btw, I lost count the number of times CR's translation jumped between He and She while describing the youkai. Just stick with one or use classical they/them.

Gah! No new episode next week.

The start was a little disturbing, but it was a nice little typically Natsume episode. I really needed one of these after the election results:



Also, some out of context material:

Another great episode, and another scene from Reiko's past. I can't help but wonder how it would be if she was still alive.

Ahahaha, Dog's Circle won xD They were so cute thinking they were the ones who helped Natsume with getting his voice back.

This episode just gave me LIFE, the vibe was so good based on whats happening these last days. The OST, why so perfect? I hope to see more about Reiko's past, WE need to see more about her.

Why didn't Reiko ever return to that lonely youkai? Kind of mean.

Next week is a waste of an episode. That OVA already exists, and I honestly just watched it a month ago...
Why air the OVA in this season? Production issues?

Episodes like this makes me wonder more and more about Reiko. We know she was lonely, we know for all her sufferings because of her power she was kind- softer than Natsume at times. What happened after that?
She met a man and had a baby. Who was this man? How did she die? Why did she have do many unfulfilled promises with so many Youkais? Was her death unexpected or did she just pass away with time?
And mainly, how did Madara and Reiko meet? What happened between them?
Coming to the episode, damn, Hidaka was cute. Youkai's like this, innocent and sweet is what makes Natsume Yuujinchou such a huge hit.

I loved this new episode.
Also, is it me, or did Reiko have a more emotional expression? Normally when she's wth youkai, I feel like she's wearing a mask, and her smile doesn't feel real, however in this episode, she seemed to genuinely have fun with this youkai. I wonder what happened....She normally doesn't ever long to be with others when she's with youkai. Here, she voiced her longing clearly.

I really feel pity when we see that Reiko doesn't know how to play with two players. Sign of solitude TT__TT

Excellent episode. 5/5

This is classic Natsume, this episode is a great example of why I enjoy this series so much. It's the little things in life that make a lasting impression on individuals.

I wish they would make a spinoff or a OVA that focused on Reiko!

I'm also happy that Hinoe and the other mid-rank yokai are back, but they did not get enough screen time.

I just love it when he gives back a name and we get to see a flashback of Reiko's past! That always is very touching and bittersweet! Really liked this episode as well, let's see what happens next!

After so many adventures and a long time spent with Madara, notice this change of attitude toward the Yuujinchou for Natsume, it seems consistent. The attachment that now he feels for it, it is natural and shows no forcing, more marks a new step in his character growth. Great as usual the episode, melancholy and sweet. Hilarious Hidaka the Ayakashi.

Another sad farewell... I really liked Hidaka too. I can't help but feel bad for all these yokai that were waiting for Reiko for a long time in vain, and they didn't even now that she had passed away. Makes me wonder if those encounters meant much to her, did she really forget her promises easily... Dunno.

This series never fails to amaze me, it's so melancholic and somehow nostalgic. So bittersweet.

Hidaka was pretty fun, sucks that she's going away :( Would've been cool if she decided to reside in the forest with the middle-class yokai but I'm guessing she prefers to live in valleys.
