The November issue (on sale on September 24) of Hakusensha's LaLa magazine will reportedly announce that the second anime season based on Yuki Midorikawa's Natsume Yūjin-Chō shōjo ghost-story manga will premiere on January on Japan's TV Tokyo station. The first anime season is scheduled to end next Monday. The new season will showcase more characters from the manga such as Kuro-Nyanko-sensei, Gen, and Tama-chan.
The story revolves 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.
