“At turns exciting, touching and funny, 'Natsume's Book of Friends' is an anime anyone can watch and everyone will enjoy.”

About the show:


Natsume has always been an outcast because he inherited his grandmother Reiko's ability to see yokai (strange beings that are invisible to most people). After moving to his grandmother's hometown and accidentally releasing a yokai who was imprisoned in a Lucky Cat statue, he learns about one of his grandmother's keepsakes, her “Book of Friends,” which contains the names of the yokai she defeated, and allows its wielder to command the yokai named within. Since then, his life has gotten much more hectic, and yokai now visit him on a daily basis, seeking to either get their names back or take possession of the Book of Friends.

About the show:


Sawako Kuronuma has had a difficult time fitting in. Some say it's her jet black hair, others say it's her hushed manner of speaking, while still others claim it is due to her name's similarity to Sadako, a character from a popular Japanese horror series. On her first day of high school, Sawako meets the one boy who treats her like a normal girl— Shota Kazehaya. Through his selfless aid, Sawako slowly learns to come out of her shell and even begins to make friends for the first time in her life.

Kitahoro High's second term is coming to a close. After dealing with dark rumors and finally confronting her inner emotions, Sawako knows the feelings she holds for Kazehaya are romantic in nature.

About the show:


After ringing in the new year with her crush at their local shrine, things seem to be going well between Sawako and Kazehaya. However, a new year means new obstacles to overcome, and a young girl's first love is no exception. When Sawako begins to doubt herself, her rival Kurumi senses it and makes a few comments that push Sawako's confidence back to zero. When you add in Kazehaya's misunderstandings as well as a new boy in class who seems to like Sawako the same way Kazehaya does, it sums up to equal another exciting school year!
