All of my tears. All of them.

I'm gonna have to write down the best episodes of Natsume once I finish this season. These powerful Natsume episodes are always worth a rewatch when you're having a bad day.

If there's one thing I've learned, is to respect your parents from this episode.

I'm never going to see this episode as anything other than the one where Natsume nearly went emo...

Nyanko-sensei brushing his teeth together with Natsume was the cutest thing ever! <3

I loved that part! It would be awesome if cats could brush their teeth by themselves XD

So many tears this episode...Tanuma is just such a great friend. It was so heartbreaking to hear that Natsume wanted to forget about everything, I can totally relate. My heart just broke for him. Beautiful episode.

I wonder what Natsume's Grandfather was like.

A bit more of a casual episode focusing on the memories of his parents and his friends so well let's see what's next!

Nyanko-sensei brushes his teeth haha! Well with all the manju and other stuff he eats, he really needs to.

It would have been awesome if Takashi's parents were alive :( Still, he's so lucky to have Shigeru and Touko. The feels... T___T

I swear some of the scenes in this season are so corny it makes me feel awkward sometimes. Then I guess I should expect this from a shoujo manga adaptation.
Good episode nonetheless.

Yet another episode that's simple yet beautiful. Touko and Shigeru (but especially Touko) are so kind hearted and wonderful. I liked the greater focus on Natsume's past rather than the youkai, it felt more personal. I really wonder where Natsume's father went though. I wanted to take it nice and easy with the rest of this season but I can't stop myself from wanting to see the journey to his house.

Probably the best episode to an underwhelming season. I teared up twice in this episode. Next episode looks good too, but ugh only 3 episodes left to the Natsume Yuujincho anime. ): I hope they make more.

That was so beautiful ;_; Natsume often reminds me of the weak side of myself and this episode was another example. It's great that he has friends who can read him so well and help as a result.

I couldn't remember if it was explained what happened with Natsume's parents so it was good to hear it in this episode. His parents look like such nice people similar to their son. Would be nice to see the first house he lived in....and the kind of person who Reiko ended up marrying/having a child with, but I don't expect that anytime soon.

I teared up a few times in this episode, especially when Natsume said 'there are some things you can't have no matter how badly you want them' - Arrgh so emotional!!
I did lol when I saw Natori's poster in the background again though!

Pleasant but also very sad to revisit the past Natsume, narrative which reveals vividly the sadness that pervades the protagonist, the merit is also the dialogues. Excellent performance of Nyanko-sensei.

This ep was practically vanilla SoL, and all the more stronger for it. We finally caught a glimpse of Natsume's parents. Natsume's been training himself to forget his pains and hide it behind lies all his life, and for once he got called out on it. Props to Tanuma.

This is turning out to be the best season of Natsume yet.

Best girl Taki finally makes an appearance this season :)

This episode felt weak compared to the others. Too much focus on Natsume's repressed feelings and not a lot going. The majority of the episode took place in Natsume's room with the rest just walking in the woods with the guys. The only good thing out of it was learning what his parents looked like. Other than that it was pretty much just a setup episode for the next one where he goes to see his old home.

It is extremely impressive how this ep was so simple, that there wasn't even a supernatural conflict, yet it managed to deliver a very emotional story about accepting memories, no matter how painful.

So we'll get to see Natsume going to his parents home.
Something that came to my mind after seeing Shigeru-san with a camera, if Natsume was to have a picture with youkai, would people or him actually see them once it's been developed? Would feel kinda sad having friends but not having the possibility to take a photo with them.

What a great episode Tanuma is a wonderful firend he is concerned about Natsume's well being and the only person who changed Natsume's way of thinking he is great gift to Natsume.

Best episode of all four seasons so far for me. It flows so beautifully. Amazing.

I can actually relate to this episode, how Natsume always avoids asking for other people's help lest it should cause troubles to them, and how he always hides his own deep feelings. Typical introvert boy.

Maybe it's just me, but it sometimes occur to me that Natsume actually still has some sort of depression deep inside of him, but he's hiding it so well that no one could be aware.

The Conviction Arc is even better than the Golden Age Arc.
