I have to admit, those youkai guys are pretty nice for non-human creatures.

Kinda felt bad for Natsume though since he fell sick. However, those youkai actually took the time to try and make him feel better. I think this is the last episode of the TV season (not counting the unaired specials). Definitely enjoyed it quite a bit especially the second half. 8/10. Can't wait for season 6 next year!

So it was two stupid/pure youkais' fault for his fever. They did it out for their fun.

Natsume tries to recover from his fever, but weird dream made it worse (lol). Those two stupid youkais tries to fulfill snake youkai so that it can give her something that helps with the fever. Fortunately, that medicine they got seems to help. He told briefly about his grandma to Tanuma. Flower falling down at the end.

6th season on 2017!

Another enjoyable season coming to an end, tho the good news is that their might be another season in 2017 so we won't have to wait long this time.
And we got something to look forward to.
This season was calmer than the last season in my opinion but it was nice.

this was such a fun yet calm episode. I hope we see those two again there actually enjoyable to watch and watching try to find a way to cure natsume was so funny. Natsume's fever dream about seeing all the youkai in class was unexpected yet so hilarious to see them in uniform (I will say this hinoe and benio didn't look half bad in a school uniform), nyako sensei as the sensei loved him in glasses. this season went by so fast but at least we know season 6 is going to happen next year and here I thought I would have to wait 4 years until season 6.

It'd be interesting if the reason the medicine worked was because Natsume wasn't fully human =D

I mean he did get better after drinking it.

The last line hit me hard.....

Aww! Those mid ranks really do care for Natsume XD
LOL Natsume's dream where Nyanko-sensei became an ACTUAL teacher! XD
The ending was really beautiful when the two youkai scattered the flowers all over Natsume :)

Yay, new season next year! :)

When those two youkai are on screen there's always fun to be had. Now I've got to wait patiently for those last two episodes.

Also season 3 hype.

Lovely & wonderful finale episode.

Poor Natsume got sick.

LOL One-Eye & the Bull trying their hardest to rebuild those lanterns.
That was a weird dream.

OMG Nyanko-Sensei wearing a tie & glasses is the best thing ever. I loved it.
Hopefully one day Natsume can reveal his secret to his friends.

Want more Sasada & Taki though.

Overall another fantastic & splendid season. Always so peaceful & relaxing to watch. Gonna miss this show a lot, but so excited for Season 06 next year.

Another great episode. I generally like Natsume and Touko interactions. Treating Natsume as if he was her child. First time hearing about strawberries being used to cure fever. Usually soup, warm bath and rest is the general way I've gotten over fevers.

Tanuma's such a great friend.
That ending scene was very heart warming, Natsume being covered in flower pedals. Well that wraps up this relaxing season for now.

what good and kind Youkai, to care for Natsume. They actually tried to take resposibility in trying to help Natsume get better, such good friends. Plus the dream that natsume got is just funny, Nyanko sensei being an actual teacher and the other youkai being the student, really interesting.

It felt kinda sad since for most of the time this episode Natsume is just sick and lying in bed but from this we can learn that he actually have such good friends no matter who they are, either a youkai or his friends at school

wait, this is the last episode? there won't be more? noooooo!! the end of my life!!!

MAL has already listed season 6. I don't know if Crunchyroll will offer it when released. Since they offer the first five seasons, the chances seem pretty good.

Don't think there's much more to be said about this than has already been said; a great ending to another great season of Natsume, and it's made even better by the news that there's another season to come in 2017.

Last episode of this season, and continues the line of others, a sweet plot between Natsume and this 2 Incorrigible Youkais!!!

Natsume take cold, and has to stay in bed, and this time his remenbers and nightmares return to him, but all is a little life lesson!!!

This season for me has been the most lax, nice storys, sweets, and poignant, although without surprises !!!

The last sentence pretty much describes how a life looks like. We love and are amused by many things even though we know they're temporary and we will lose them someday. I think they really couldn't pick better words to finish this season.

It's good to know Natsume has so many friends and not only human ones. Mid-renks were cute, cleaning so eagerly. A pity their medicine wasn't much of a help, but hey, it's the intention that matters, right?

A bit sad the season ended two episodes earlier than I was expecting it to, but at least we know there will be another season soon <3

This was disappointing. Finally we got to see Taki and yet Tanuma stopped her from visiting Natsume.

Taki is love.

Wow. This show overwhelm me so much. I think I enjoyed and learn to appreciate the show more as I get older as well. Definitely looking forward to the next season next year! Hopefully will have more episodes!! Will miss the interaction between Nyanko sensei and Natsume!!!

That was beautiful, once again showing that Natsume has both a lot of humans and youkai that care about him. It's so cute how tsundere those two are, going through so much just to help Natsume get better.

I also liked the talk between Natsume and Tanuma.

And even the youkai that kept scaring Natsume when he was young, the youkai didn't do it out of ill will (well for his entertainment...) and even wished for Natsume to get better. "Ephemeral child," such a sad phrase. I'm glad that even though the youkai know Natsume won't be around that long in their sense of time, they still like him and interact with him.

Really happy to hear about season 6! Will never get enough of Natsume Yuujinchou.

This episode was quite good, conveying the intended well.

This season was quite enjoyable. The production didn't change and it is the same with its themes. They managed to continue it fairly naturally despite that quite a long time had passed since the last season.

Overall, I'm quite satisfied.

What a really nice ending to season 5. It has been a heartwarming ride every week that natsume yuujinchou delivered.

Especially this episode, I really like it very much. The ost is really calm and that care that that 2 youkais and his family show to Natsume is really pure love. That ending scene when the 2 youkais spread the flower is really beautiful.

And also Natsume Yuujinchou fandom are always the most peaceful one. 5/5 for this episode and 9/10 as always for Natsume Series. And so glad that we can watch more Natsume on 2017 =)

Jacket wasn't warm enough... caught a cold... passes out. So sick of every single bloody anime doing this. I'm beginning to think Japanese people are super frail and are susceptible to elements rather than viruses.

Overall series 5/10. Easily the worst of the five, lack of any real focus or over arching stories. You wouldn't even know he had any real interest in giving back names if you haven't seen earlier seasons.

This season was a lot duller in the development category compared to the other seasons. I still like it though. The last few minutes of this episode was really nice.

Ths show as a whole is truly one of the HIDDEN gems of anime. I'm kinda glad it's not super mainstream or anything. It was great when Hinoe talks about the medicine not being compatible with humans, it shows how unique and amazing Natsume is :D don't you think!!

I think Season 4 was better than Season 5 IMO, but it was still really enjoyable and lovely to watch.

It got over really fast....season 5

This season the most memorable episode was his guardians.

Not much on the friends and the other youkai friends.

Looking forward to season 6

When the mid-ranks scattered the flowers of Natsume and Nyanko-sensei I flashbacked to Mushishi. ^_^

Just curious why it was only 11 episodes instead of the usual 13?

I liked this season more than the previous one, since it had less of the exorcists, which is pretty much the only part of the series which I don't really like. Looking forward to season 6.

I want more of Natori, Matoba and Natsume interactions but it's getting on my nerves that everytime Matoba wants to say something he always gets interrupted, even when he wanted to say something to Natsume by letter, still he didn't manage too. It's getting annoying for me. This season of natsume yuujinchou is a bit plain for me but there are many good flash backs and more of their past revealed.

A being sick episode, not the best concept in my opinion they would take for the last episode for this season. However knowing there will be a 6th season does make it slightly better in terms of no continuation or proper ending for this season.

All in all this new season was pretty lovely, and I sure loved to experience this atmosphere and the characters again!

Looking forward for the 6th season already!

The whole season was about youkais getting used to humans although they know that they'll outlive them by miles. So the middles' talk might also be a metaphore of relation between youkai and humans.

And now, waiting for last two eps and next season, in 2017.

Speaking about which - happy new year everyone, without worries and problems and with less things you HAVE to do.

Once again, a reminder of how far Natsume has come. He has so many friends now, both human and yokai included.

Another great end to a great season. See you in 2017, Natsume!

So they can save on money and give us an even better season six, haha. Could also be due to the special about Nyanko-sensei (which makes 12 episodes), or because of time slots available on tv.

This episode barely felt like a finishing episode. It was cutesy and just what was necessary after the tears I cried from the previous episode about Touko. More Touko and Shigeru and youkai clan fights in season 6, I hope! :D I was hoping for some more Taki interactions as well... season 6, don't fail on me!

My only critique is OVER TOO SOON.

"We know the petals will fall some day... But yet we're still entranced by them."

A very beautiful quote combined with a very beautiful shot, that has so much more meaning than you'd expect.

Natsume's Book of Friends never fails to deliver ;u;

Great episode, great way to finish this season. Those middle-rank guys were really considerate to fix all those stone lanterns just to get Natsume the drug, and a drug that doesn't even work on humans! Seems to have done the job though.

Why was this season so short?!

10/10, no contest!

It's so painful to think that Natsume will pass on eventually, while the youkai will still be around.

I wonder what ending the manga is going to go for.

That was SO beautiful. Truly amazing. Especially the end when they showered Natsume with flowers. I teared up yet again. I can't believe we've hit the end of the season already. It touches my heart to know that there were people/beings that cared about Natsume even though he didn't know it, especially when he was young. It's so heartwarming to see so many people around him, humans and yokai alike, that wish for him to get better and are trying to do something to help him get better. Now I'm sad that I'll have to wait for the next season and not be able to binge watch once the new season comes out. I can never get tired of this beautiful masterpiece.
