NIS America announced their plans today for their release of the beautiful and heartwarming Natsume's Book of Friends
, seasons 1 & 2, and they're giving you the chance to have your questions answered by director Takahiro Omori. For an added bonus, if your question is selected, you'll also receive one of five (5) retail copies of the Natsume's Book of Friends Season 1 & 2 Premium Edition
package! The package will come with all 26 episodes from both seasons one and two on four DVDs, as well as a full color, 32-page hardcover art book, which will be available on October 9, 2012.
Natsume's Book of Friends follows a boy named Natsume Takashi, who has the ability to see spirits. After he inherits a mysterious book from his deceased grandmother, he discovers that the spirits are contractually bound to the owner of the book. Now, with the help with a spirit cat, he's determined to free all of the spirits.
The contest will be open for one week, until Saturday, July 7 at 11:59PM EST. You can submit up to five questions at once, but for the best chance of winning, please make sure the questions are related to Mr. Omori's involvement in the production of Natsume's Book of Friends. Only one entry per person, please. Winners will be announced and notified the following week, once we've had a chance to pore over all the responses. The contest is open to everyone, but prizes will only be shipped to addresses in the United States and Canada.
