Crunchyroll to Stream Natsume Yūjin-Chō Shi Anime

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
4th season based on Yuki Midorikawa 's supernatural manga to premiere on January 2

Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it will stream the fourth season of Natsume's Book of Friends, Natsume Yūjin-Chō Shi. The series will premiere on January 2, and Crunchyroll will begin streaming it on January 2 at 1:00 p.m. EST in North America, South America, Central America, Greenland, Iceland, Spain, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Turkey.

The anime seasons and Yuki 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.

Crunchyroll has streamed all three previous television anime seasons outside Japan. Viz Media published the tenth volume of the manga in North America in December.
