I agree, I prefer it as well. There are way too many romance animes.... one gets tired of it.

What I was getting at is, that considering the shounen ai undertones Natsume cant have any interests in a girl..... but at the same time, if they dont want to go all shounen ai on us, they need to keep the shounen ai vibe moderate and so they drop romance completely.

I am sure fangirls will see romance where there isnt and make up for it that way.

I just realized that I had had the third season sitting in my back burner for months and decided to watch it in one sitting. God, what had I been missing. Unfortunately now I will have to wait with everyone else. Awwww.

Natsume was interested in one girl... the female bird youkai back in season 1.

Hmm ... really? A romantic interest?

Somehow I didn't pick that quality up in that ep.

But that could just be me being dense....

I agree with Anime_gal. Natsume's interest in her seemed more like the beginnings of a romantic interest than his normal beginning of friendship feelings to me.

I kind of read it that way when it happened. Sadly never got to see her again. Still it did feel like one of the more emotional episodes for Natsume personally. Especially at the very end of it.

Classic sweet Natsume Yuujinchou story this week. Damn, those furballs were cute. Not as cute as Tama ( ;_; ) though.

Looks like we'll get another romantic story between a human and a youkai -my favorite type of stories in Natsume- next week. Looking forward to it.

Ok - it's official. Nyanko-sensei IS fatter this season.

Interesting thatthe possible youkai/human romance storyline seems to be popping up next week in light of recent discussions in here....

Well I enjoyed ep 3 - more Natsume goodness, but I must admit that I did not expect the furballs to turn into THAT!

7.5/10 vote on this ep from me.

Well Natsume seems more concerned about maintaining friendships then romance at the moment. The author did say how she didn't like being forced to incorporate romance elements so much into her last work and wouldn't want to make that very important in Natsume.

Anyways, another wonderful episode form Natsume as usual. The fur balls were pretty cute. Funny how they all become like a dragon when together.

Still though I really wish we'd get to learn more things about Reiko than we have up to this point.

Aww how cute, the "dragon" scene was just lovely. And I also loved how fluffy (or whatever his name was) brought those berries for Natsume.

Natsume affecting everyone with his kindness (including me )

The 4th season is off to a great start with 3 terrific episodes.


Also love when we see Natsume & Nyanko-Sensei sleeping next to each other. <3

I'm liking the constant appearances of Hinoe.

Where's Benio?

Classic "junk food" NY this week, but that's my favorite mode for this series. We've had a lot of canon eps lately, and not as many heartwarming and cute ones as we used to. Three very strong eps to start the season, especially the last two.

That was a great classic Natsume episode. He encounters a youkai, has an adventure, and this farewell at the end. These are the kinds of episodes I love from the series. Sure a serious threat from Amana, but the real story was the bond with fluffball and how in the end those little Karu came together to save Natsume .

The Karu were an interesting little group. They seem helpless, but then you learn they are poisonous. They have a terrible reputation, but clearly have kindness from how fluffball responded to having hurt Natsume. They also represent the way Natsume deals with his conflicts. Not by being overly powerful himself, but by having others around him that are willing to help.

Great episode.

Another two chapter story adapted into one episode. It amazes me every time when the studio pull this off, and don't lose any of the original magic from the manga. Reason enough there why we're on the 4th season, heh.

Looks like we're skipping volumes 10 and 11 for now and will be seeing a future chapter story adapted next week. I've heard nothing but good things about it, so i can't wait.

Lol and I kept thinking, what they remind me of..... hahaha

The criters were cute. I thought it was nice, that they had a non speaking youkai for a change.

Yeah, Natsumes kindness is catchy.... this series is such a comfort food for me.
