I thought it was a she too until he said "I have to become a man" or something like that.
I believe it hit a trap...

nway, awsome episode. I was hoping the fox would live with Natsume too, but meh ;)

next episode looks pretty good, can't wait.

I have not been to activate with this series in talking about it but I AM WITH YOU GUYS SINCE #1 OF THIS. This being said I will be brief on this episode: BEAUTIFUL TEARS....THIS EPISODE DESERVES THEM! On that note SCREW WALT DISNEY FOR TRYING BUT NEVER ACHIEVING SOMETHING LIKE THIS EPISODE HAD TO OFFER. That's all see ya around.

The fox doesn't look really male if you ask me, even wearing a shirt and a woman-like hat. Looks more like a mistranslation or something. Also if you look at his/her head: it has definitely the face structure of a girl. Okay, this whole ''what gender is it'' thing aside (I still don't know what it actually is), but it really reminded me of xxxHolic >.> Young fox, helped by main character, unable to transform into a human. Oh well, they both started publishing in the same year...

This episode was okay, but I really need a storyline! Just returning names and getting flashbacks aren't good enough for me to be a storyline >.> ~Wants more Kaname~

I agree Dragon...the series of one-offs without a story to tie them all together is slightly lame. I really enjoy the characters and the look, so i hope a story comes.

The fox in the manga was more masculine xD


Anyways, this episodes was nice and cute. The little fox-that-looked-like-a-little-girl was really cute too. From the preview it looks like the episode might be something like the previous one. >D Looking forward to it.

I don't know if a story will come in later, but for now it's presenting the theme of loneliness, and of finding a person's place and purpose. We're seeing Natsume grow up and come out more. I think that's a nice story in itself for now.

I agree, we also slowly learn more and more about is lonely grandmother. I'm assuming at some point we learn how she gained happiness and by then Natsume would probably already have found the answer to his own loneliness.

At the beginning I was like huh where is this going with the little fox? Episode was good but finished loving it.
Natsume's words at the end, reminded me of something and made me cry. Few animes make me feel like this so this one is now going to my favs. n_n

Natsume is really my feel good anime!! Yes, the theme of loneliness is quite prominent and you feel for the characters but at the end of the episode, there is this warm fuzzy feeling which makes me smile.

The little fox is really cute and abt it's gender issues, well I see it as a guy (obviously) and he is a kid. His innocence and gentleness would prolly automatically thinks that the hat is pretty, pretty enough for his mum. Therefore, he wears the hat in a way to connect with her.

haha...but this is the genre of the anime. It doesn't have a storyline.

Just, like Mushishi and Aria, it doesn't need one...

This episode and the series in general are an utter delight. The themes are poignant without any melodrama, and the music is fantastic without being "showy". The decided lack of 'epicness' is its greatest strength. Its an almost zen-like experience.

Yes! That's how I keep describing it to my bf - it definitely reminds me of mushi-shi a little. It does have a bit more of a steady storyline than mushi-shi, however, but only slightly so far.

The fox is insanely cute, too!! Gosh, what an adorable character! I love this show so much and I only began it today! LOL

This episode was simply great.

I was suspecting things would take a turn for the worst, like making that little kid think that natsume didn't like him, and become a bad spirit or something.
I'm glad this doesn't follow that dammned shonnensque formula.

I'd keep that fox spirit. just like cat-sensei.

This hit all the right cuteness buttons for me. That little fox was so adorable and sad at the same time.

Natsume is turning out to be one of my favourite characters ever.

Just getting sweeter and sweeter each episode, aww.. ;u; And the ED is as soothing as ever. I'm not really into episodic anime in general (Mushishi was great though), but this feels just.. right somehow, especially when I'm already tired. Not really the kind of anime ever to get into my favourites, but.. yeah. Calming, I do like it.

I'm just going to pretend that the fox was female. There's no excuse for it being male. There are no visual clues at all.

The story hasn't developed all that much, but each episode seems to get me more attatched. I guess it is potraying the theme of lonliness and i can relate to that too, altogether it just gives me a warm feeling watching this <3

Another sweet episode. I hope that they can meet again. The little fox was just too cute! And for a minute there I just got the wird feeling that something might happen to him when he left the train.

I guess I've seen too many "tragedy" animes recently.

Uber-Cuteness!!!

Then again, I always like kitsune.. This kid's adorable, cute ...

He was getting tricked?? Aren't kitsune normally supposed to be the tricksters themselves? Oh well, must be 'cause he's so young. And yeah, with the hat and the shirt as well I guess anyone would think it's a girl.

nyanko sensei was fun again as well.
Osu!
