The March issue of Hakusensha's LaLa magazine revealed on Tuesday that Natsume Yūjin-Chō Roku, the planned sixth anime based on Yuki Midorikawa's Natsume's Book of Friends (Natsume Yūjin-Chō) manga, will air this spring.
Natsume Yūjin-Chō Go, the fifth series, debuted in October and ended with its 11th episode last month. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.
The anime seasons and Midorikawa's original manga revolve around Natsume, a boy who has been able to see ghosts since he was little. Unfortunately, humans shun him, and there is not much fondness between him and ghosts either. One day, he inherits a Yūjin-Chō ("Book of Friends") from his grandmother. The book is actually full of contracts that his grandmother made to trap ghosts. As one ghost after another shows up, Natsume tries to release or help them — even while many of them seek vengeance on him.
