I haven't seen a post for this so..here it is. I like the new logo but i think they should have switched season 3 and this one, the gold doesn't really feel like its a winter series.

Plot Summary: Natsume Takashi sees spirits, and with the help of his lazy and sake-guzzling bodyguard Nyanko-Sensei he returns to spirits their names that were stolen by his grandmother Natsume Reiko. Not all of the spirits are peaceful though, and he often fights to keep himself and his family and friends safe while at the same time fighting the loneliness that plagued him before he found his home.

YAY!!! A fourth season!! This is one of my favorite anime of all time and I'm glad it's been getting the attention it deserves! I can't wait for January!...but I still wish someone would license all the seasons and dub them already!

White Manju Bun 2011-11-27 15:36

I remember back when season 1 was nearly over a lot of people said how they could watch 40-50 epis of this. Im glad Brains Base heard us :D Cant wait for the new season!

Guardian Enzo 2011-11-28 00:58

Brains Base heard the cash registers - every season has sold a ton of DVDs and Blu-rays... Deservedly so, but let's not kid ourselves about why it's been a sequel machine.

At least it's a great show (i know opinion but still) that actually sells well that's hard to imagine in this day and age. Look at all of Manglobe's series: They're pretty awesome but they hardly don't even sell well. I'm still amazed Gundam Seed Destiny sold over 50,000 DVDs....

Guardian Enzo 2011-11-28 01:44

I don't disagree, it's rare and wonderful to see a great series sell well. In my view (which I know won't be shared by all, especially in one example) this year featured two in Steins;Gate and AnoHana.

Huzzah is all I have to say ... I enjoyed seasons 1 through 3 and look forward to season 4.

Continuation of Natsume was the best news in a long while. I love that anime to pieces :)

FireChick 2011-12-13 18:29

I second the two above posts hands down!:D:D:D

ars89 2011-12-13 18:51

this just popped up to me, but does anyone know how the sales have been for the past seasons?, i'm just assuming it did well since we keep getting more seasons.

blewin 2011-12-14 00:54

such wonderful news! I agree. Not all great series are received well, so it's good to see Natsume getting fair treatment.

I don't know how well San sold but I think the original and Zoku are Brain Bases's second highest selling shows (under Durarara!!, I think I saw that one or two volumes may have broken 10,000? The numbers are somewhere on the forums....)

Guardian Enzo 2011-12-14 17:14

San has maintained the numbers from the first two seasons with eerie consistency. Natsume fans are clearly hooked, so this is a very safe show for Brain's Base to keep funding.

blewin 2011-12-15 07:45

hurray for that! so if the manga can move on faster, we may even get a 5th season....

That cracks me up, it's nearly the complete opposite of what usually moves DVDs yet it's like printing money for BB. Now if only we could get it in the States....

FireChick 2011-12-16 07:26

I second that. That and an English dub for it!!!

ars89 2011-12-22 19:13

pv is out

Guardian Enzo 2011-12-22 20:09

Needs more Kogitsune.

webkid94 2011-12-22 20:34

Watched the PV...some thoughts:

-Wow, everything looks better animated than season 3. Brains Base is making bank on this series for sure and it shows.
-Doesn't seem to have a Reiko presence..but who knows.
-That OP song...ugh. Please let that be part of the full version and not part of the OP, cause that was really weak.

So true, which is why i didn't like season 2 as much cause he wasn't there at all.

Asleep 2011-12-23 04:25

More Natsume is always welcome. I am not worried about them not animating the entire manga anymore. I mean 4 seasons! They will animate everything eventually. And it's a good thing I didn't start reading the manga. I am going to stay away unless I am reading older stuff.

Yeah, I was so happy when he showed up in season 3!
