similiar style of heart-warming supernatural story with similiar facinating ghosts characters. Touching scenes & stories..
If you liked this anime you will definitely like Spirited Away, the main character in both animes can see spirits and they have to deal with them through it.
Both deal with the interactions between an ordinary human protagonist and the supernatural creatures they encounter. Both have similar meticulous pacing, themes of friendship, character growth, and are pretty much guaranteed to warm your heart at least a little.
Both are about Youkai. Well, Spirited Away is a wonderfull movie, completely must to see for everyone. The ones who enjoyed Natsume's story will love Chihiro.
Natsume Yuujinchou revolves around a phycic teenage boy named Takashi Natsume, who is hounded by spirits on a regular basis.
Recently, Takashi's grandmother Reiko passed away, leaving him the mysterious 'Natsume book of friends'.

Upon inheriting this book, Natsume is faced with more spirits, those wanting thier names returned, and those out to steal the book in order to gain servants.
Spirited away revolves around a young girl named Chihiro, who, with
both are about spirits, but Spirited away has more action, and Natsume Yuujinchou is more relaxing, :)
both are full of loving characters you will never forget. while spirited away is more fast paced natsume yuujin is more slow and calm. Both are full of supernatural creatures and the determination of a child/teen to do what they think is right. fully fleshed out characters that are brought to life on the screen right before your eyes. if you liked spirited away you will love natsume yuujin because both are unforgettable in their own right.
Both have a human become involved in a spirit community.
Both are supernatural tales regarding interesting ghosts and their stories. Ghosts in both anime aren't the horrific killer ghosts, but just spirits that just want to live peacefully.
If you love spirited away, I would really recommend watching this!
Similar air/vibe about these two and the idea of spirits or youkai is present in both.
Both really beautiful.
If you're a fond of spirits, monsters, or any weird apparitions, but an anime that's got a great story, then Natsume Yuujinchou is for you.
If you are seeking a Anime with Youkai & Spirits, look no further than Spirited away, and Natsume and the book of friends. Both anime have really good story telling, where Natsume Yuujinchou focus more on many different stories, Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi focuses on one longer one. Both anime are relaxing and some what exciting to watch. If you looking for a good time, or you just finished spirited away but long for some more of those spirit like beings? Check out Natsume Yuujinchou!
I´m glad i did!
Both Natsume and Spirited Away concern the relationships between humans and spirits; in Natsume, it is the relationship between him and the youkai apparently only he can see, in Spirited Away, it is the relationship between Sen and the spirits of the bath house. Due to it being a movie, Spirited Away has a much more prominent plot, whereas Natsume, being a slice of life show, is more laid back with episode-long story arcs. Both are fantastic.
