Streaming Pick of the Month: Natsume’s Book of Friends!

October is here! Time to get your creepy on as the weather cools and leaves begin transform! What’s that? You want a show that has some creepy and a touching plot? Oh and wonderful artwork too? Look no further!

Natsume has the dubious honor of inheriting both his grandmother’s mysterious Book of Friends and her horrifying ability to see Youkai, mystical creatures unseen by most mortals. This makes his life a waking nightmare where fellow humans shun him and Youkai relentlessly chase him. Or they did until Natsume comes into favor with a powerful Youkai and gains a bodyguard. Committing himself to releasing the names of the Youkai bound to the Book of Friends, Natsume and his bodyguard come into contact with every Youkai imaginable and just as many humans, their stories touching and affecting one another in complicated and wondrous ways. (See the full review here!)

The first 39 episodes of this ongoing series are available legally via Crunchyroll for viewing (a fourth season is also available). The first two seasons are now licensed for a US release this month via NIS America.

About inrosegalaxy

Raised on everything from Moby Dick to the Star Wars X-Wing books from a young age, it came as no surprise to anyone who knew me that I’d become a literature graduate and avid writer. But my love of a good story wasn’t restricted to the written word in my early years. Star Trek, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and badly dubbed Godzilla flicks helped shape my love of science fiction on screen as well. I wrote my first story while in the second grade. It was a horrifying tale about murdering a fairy-eating dog via a slice of pizza (in my defense, my only exposure to pizza was in the cafeteria and I swear you could legitimately kill someone with those things). I was a special snowflake. Today I write science fiction, fairy tales, Gothic epistolaries, fantasy and anything else that pops into my bizarre and twisted mind. I write new articles for my blog every Tuesday and Thursday. And if you happen to fancy Japanese animation, I also run an anime review blog, RRAR, which updates every Monday.
