NIS America to Release Natsume Yūjin-Chō Anime

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Company has license to all 4 seasons of TV anime series based on Yuki Midorikawa's supernatural manga

NIS America announced on Friday that it will release the Natsume Yūjin-Chō television anime series on home video. NIS America noted that it has the license to all four seasons of the series, and the company told ANN it has not yet finalized in what format the series will be released.

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, and it will stream the fourth season starting January 2. Viz Media published the tenth volume of the manga in North America in December.

Update: Press release link added.
