Natsume's Book of Friends Manga Gets 6th Anime in 2017

posted on by Karen Ressler
5th anime series currently airing on Crunchyroll

The eleventh episode of Natsume Yūjin-Chō Go, the fifth television anime season inspired by Yuki Midorikawa's Natsume's Book of Friends (Natsume Yūjin-Chō) manga, announced on Wednesday that a sixth anime series titled Natsume Yūjin-Chō Roku (Natsume's Book of Friends Six) has been greenlit for 2017.

Natsume Yūjin-Chō Go debuted on October 4 and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs.

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.
