It seems Natsume gained a new friend. I'm happy for him.

And he realized that he would feel lonely without Sensei and other Youkai.

These two episodes have been wonderful. The suspense and drama were played out nicely without being pretentious and the ending gave such a warm feeling. The ED was especially fitting for this episode.

Hell yeah, don't mess with Madara and Natsume. I wonder if Natsume would win if he stayed behind and fight instead of running... I mean, like Reiko, he is quite powerful. This youkai is the only one so far to be able to withstand 1 punch from Natsume.

I knew Nyanko cared a lot of Natsume despite his sharp mouth, this episode really shown their friendship very well especially when Natsume can't see.

Madara staying in his true form near Natsume was so touching. I really like Taki a lot.

Superb episode just as the last one! I loved Taki from second we saw her and I hope for a possible romance, or even hints if anything. But sadly I doubt it will happen, but I can hope :D

This show really is a lovely little gem.

Natsume realized that he felt lonely when not being able to see youkai… He seemed so desperate, something that grew to be very important to him, in contrast to in the beginning, was missing. It would be sad if he loses the ability to see youkai.

While I like Taki and all, I don’t want any romance, Natsume Yuujinchou is supposed to be about friendship and the romance would get in the way. Everything’s perfect as it has been until now.

Madara looking out for him while slept was really touching. He does care about Natsume.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

Great episode! It was actually pretty tense for a while there. A bit unusual for a yokai to be so bad, but I guess he was made of evil energy. =/
Loved the bit with Madara watching over Natsume. He acts like he doesn't care about Natsume at all, but it seems Nyanko-sensei is a bit of a softie deep down. >=}
I also like how concerned Natsume and Taki were about not wanting to make the other feel bad. Of course one can go too far with this (as Natsume has learned over the course of the series), but I kind of wish people were like this more.

The scene where Natsume can't see Madara in his room is very touching, one of my favourites from this season. I love to see Nyanko-sensei without sneering facade, all serious, concerned and caring for Natsume deeply.

As for Taki, she might be a good friend, but I don't see her and Natsume as a pairing at all. To be honest, I hope this anime NEVER goes into Natsume+anyone romance. It's not needed.

Superb and brilliant episode. Comedy, suspense, drama and the slice of life feel are perfectly done in this ep.

I laughed so hard when Nyanko-sensei posed like Doraemon with his gadget. ROFL

And the sealing scene iss probably the most intense scene so far.

Also, the character developments of Tooru and Madara with Natsume are well delivered.

What else can I say? This show is simply amazing..

Nyanko-sensei watching over Natsume was so touching, Taki is a great character i hope she doesn't turn into another minor character, its more interesting with her around with Nyanko and all.

Nyanko-sensei was seriously creepy in the beginning of the 1st season. Now he's funny, cute and fking awesome (when in ayakashi form). I love him.
I love Natsume too. He felt lonely without the youkai... T~T

Love this series. <3

I don't know why, but the song when it shows the preview for the next episode reminds me of Clannad.

Anyway, the highlight of the episode for me was when Madara was watching over Natsume while he was sleeping.

I sure hope there's no romance or anything. It would spoil the series.

I think a little bit of romance would actually improve things, and Taki is just the person to do it. She's cute, brave, and isn't immediately afraid of the unseen world--unless Natsume wants a relationship with a youkai I doubt he will do any better.
Please don't feed the trolls!

I liked that episode very much... The eye-to-eye confrontation between Taki and Nyanko-sensei was hilarious :D It's strange that even Madara went all serious when he got cursed... I thought that he fears mostly no one =\ That Moustache youkai is probably at his level though. Taki is so sweet but probably it's true that she'd better stay as friend with him cause Natsume Yuujinchou is better as it is - no romance included. At least for now.

Nice conclusion to this story though one thing bothers me. Natsume has all these yokai friends who know curses and other spells and he also knows Natori who works as an exorcist; you'd think he would learn how to defend himself with some sort of weapon or spell but nope. I mean I understand Nyan-ko Sensei is his bodyguard but a pretty half-ass one, so it'd be cool if he could learn to defend himself.

Just my little gripe about Natsume, but this was still a nice episode with a new character part of Natsume's growing friend group.

Nyanko-sensei caring for Natsume is really touching, I almost cried when Natsume couldn't see him as Madara. Natsume was always alone because of his ability to see youkai, but when he couldn't see Madara or Chobi, he seemed just as lonely as before. Ah, the irony ;_;

I'm glad Natsume made another friend! He and Taki seem to get along well with each other, and it's good that there's actually someone who knows about his ability to see youkai. Also, the part where Nyanko-sensei and Chobi are fighting is so funny! X)

Well, this latest episode concludes the brief arc. I liked the way it ended.

Lol'd @ her trying to resist Madara's cuteness. Anyways, it looks like everything is back to normal again. That mustache spirit was kinda strange tbh.

lol i like that mustache youkai, it seemed he and Madara would get along just fine XD

I hope Taki would make more appearances in the future episodes.

and still waiting patiently for a 3rd season of Spice & Wolf :'|

That evil Youkai was very annoying, glad madara bit the hell out of him before he was sealed.

Nice conclusion to this short story but well quite lovely story, I wonder if that character has a bigger role in the overall story than just this short arc! Either way this sure was lovely so let's see what's next!

Very good episode. Nyanko-sensei taking care of Natsume in his other form was touching. Idk but I'd expect Touko-san to start to get worried of Natsume coming home tired.

The part where Natsume couldn't see Nyanko when he switched to his true form was sad as hell. You could just feel the loneliness in the air. It was heartbreaking.

This was a really nice episode. I'm enjoying these more and more.

Why does the girl respond to the cat when he talks? Shouldn't he have to be sitting in a circle for them to be able to communicate?

After Natsume and the cat roll down the hill, the girl looks at the cat when he's speaking. This is very confusing. Is this a mistake or intentional? Is she simply paying attention to the cat because Natsume is talking to it or what?

Edit: Ok, I just got to a part where Taki clearly hears what the cat is saying. What the hell? How?

Edit2: OK, just finished it and now she can't hear mr kitty again. Thoroughly confused

Welp, now I'm aboard the Natsume x Taki ship. Hope we see more of her from now on, because she has a lot more in common with Natsume and can understand and relate to him much more than Tanuma or whatshisface actor guy.

natsume hesitantly calling out to nyanko-sensei because he's unable to see him :) the look in madara's eyes as he's standing right there, wrapped around natsume :) madara doesn't answer, just breathes a gust of air that ruffles natsume's hair :) the sound of my heart breaking into a billion pieces :)

Great episode and first I think to have a two part continuation. I was worried at first when he lost his ability but thank god it was just minor and also knowing that there is season 3 etc haha.

I like Taki she matches well with Natsume although she might be more extroverted than what was seen first, still good and I hope to see more of her since now she knows that natsume can see Yokai and also her as well; I won't jump on the romance boat just yet cause well I don't think this anime is all about that.

Good to see the seen where madara watched over Natsume after dealing with that evil one, shows that the bond is getting stronger between the two.

The relationships in this anime progress so naturally, I love it! Especially enjoy the relationship that has grown between Natsume and his guardian, and him and Madara. So unforced and sweet.

Episode pretty quiet, exciting enough, Natsume yet know himself better, he now knows that without the Ayakashi, you will not feel at ease, that change in his feelings, wow! However the story did not disappoint, the atmosphere we breathed was in line with what we have seen previously, sympathetic the interlude between Taki and Nyanko-sensei.

TAKASHI AND TOORU, I SHIP YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! Tooru is a great and fresh character to the story, I can relate to her in some things, and so can I with Natsume :D I really hope they get together in the end, or in the middle, or right now. I've been the whole episode like this:

Bloody hell, so much happened in these two episodes!

- First two-episode arc, first cliffhanger
- Some actual dramatic tension
- Eye lick
- Natsume's first legit Ayakashi sealing
- New ship has sailed

I absolutely dig this!
