This is the heartwarming story of how Natsume Takashi became to accept who he is.
Natsume Takashi is this sweet guy who likes to help out the youkai and grows to love their company. ^///^ He has a terrible past to watch--from being bullied, called a liar, to feeling like he didn't belong anywhere. And the fact that the very thing that made him feel like he didn't belong anywhere, made him realize he belonged somewhere.
I just have to mention Nyanko-sensei!<3 He takes the form of the lucky cat and loves food and sake--what's not to love? I wanted to eat all the food and snacks he was eating! XD Even though he only sticks around Natsume to get the Book of Friends, I felt like he grew to really care for Natsume.
If you are familiar with the movie Hotarubi no Mori e, this is from the same creators and you might be familiar with the art and animations: simple but beautiful.
P.S. My other anime reviews aren't going to be in this format. ^^
