A public recording event for Natsume Yuujinchou franchise held on Sunday titled Aki no Katarai (Fall Chat) has announced that a movie for the series is in production, and will premiere in 2018 to commemorate its 10th anniversary. The movie will be animated by Shuka and main two cast members, Hiroshi Kamiya and Kazuhiko Inoue, will reprise their roles.

Drawn by Yuki Midorikawa, Natsume Yuujinchou began its publication via Hakusensha's LaLa DX magazine in 2003, and moved to LaLa magazine in 2008. The series currently has 22 compiled volumes in print, with the latest released on September 5. Brain's Base adapted the manga into a TV anime in Summer 2008 and produced three more seasons before studio Shuka took over the production in Fall 2016 for the fifth and sixth season.

Wonderful! I agree that the anime is mostly slow and not made for binging, but we've had plenty of two-parters. It's Natsume so it's bound to be good.

Well that's a first. It's still Natsume so I'm glad.

Good news. More Natsume always makes my day better. I wonder if this movie will be original?

cant wait, Natsume is my thing and i love him :) Natsume daisuki

Oct 8, 10:45 AM by Kaeru89

I think it is going to be an original story and not from the manga, since usually anniversaries' works are mostly like that. But whatever is fine, as long as we get to see more Natsume <3

I don't even care what this movie is going to be about. More Natsume is always welcome.

Ehh, a movie format isn't the ideal way of presenting Natsume... but more Natsume is always good ^_^


Why ? It has been proven before that this author's work can be well adapted into a movie, as presented in Hotarubi no Mori e. Sure Natsume has a more episodic nature but it's possible if they adapt a longer arc that would usually take 2-3 episodes in TV format.
You're not wrong about that I guess. I guess I really prefer getting my dose of Natsume weekly. But yeah, if they adapt a lengthy arc, or if they make an anime-original movie (with hopefully the original mangaka writing it), then I guess a movie would work.
