I just finished this series and wow, it was easily the best SoL I've ever seen. I teared up at the end when Takashi finally got his happy ending.

Now you wait for the OADs to be subbed and read the manga.

If you enjoyed Natsume then try watching Mushi-Shi next. That helped fill in the void for me. Kino's journey is another good one
>>
>>102108202
I actually watched Mushishi and KnT before Natsume, honestly I wasn't a big fan of either. Neither of them were very heartwarming, plus the dull color palettes were a bit dreary too.
>>
>>102108357
What you're looking for then is Aria the Animation
>>
>>102108456
I've always thought I would like Aria but never picked it up for some reason. Will probably start it now, thanks.
>>
>>102105867
You should try Aria if you haven't see yet. I loved Natsume, but Aria is by far the best SoL and Iyashikei animu that I've ever watched
>>
I watched Mushishi before Aria and Aria before Natsume. Aria and Natsume easily made my favorites compared to Mushishi. I preferred the more lighthearted and stories in Natsume and Aria. You can't really grow attached to Mushishi since it's more of an atmospheric show.

Also, Aria and Natsume provide more of an satisfying end.
>>
>>102108826
Mushishi S2 soon at least.
>>
>>102108826
Same here. Mushishi seems like it would appeal more to the Abe Yoshitoshi crowd than Natsume fans.

Could be, I don't keep check since I haven't gotten around to rewatching the series yet.

Ano Hi Time Machine is my favorite OP song of all time though.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11F5THf3dzs

The OST is also my favorite alongside Horizon. In the summer I always go swimming at a nearby lake in the forest like three in the morning, and walk home on country roads during sunrise while listening to the main theme and first ED.

That sounds really peaceful anon, I'm jealous.

>>102106412
Natsume brings warmth to so many people and youkai. Whenever I think about the people and things trying to hurt/use him, I get really upset.
>>
Just finished the LaLa special and new OVA or whatever. I miss this show guys, was there going to be another season coming out?

Anyone think Natsume looked a little, older in the OVA? The animation style looked a little different than from my memory of S4, but not in a bad way.

Everyday until season five.
>>
>>102111282
not that i can recall.
any chance you could point me towards the lala special?
>>
>>102111282
Given how well the show is selling, I'd be surprised if we didn't get another season as soon as there's enough manga content.

By the way, I was thinking of starting to read the manga though I've heard that it's a lot more dark than the anime, is that true?

Why is Natsume such a free spirit?
>>
>>102111450
I didn't notice. Maybe you just thought that because he's juxtaposed next to little kids in the OVA.
>>
>>102111636
No, in plot its very similar to the anime. The manga art is verry plain though and takes away from the charm of the anime, personally I would not recommend it.

I'm not so sure about it being darker, but Natsume's character is a lot meaner and stand offish than he is in the anime. Also Sasada's character is written out/moves away im the manga at the beginning (they keep her character around in the anime)

But generally, not that different.
>>
>>102111450
only slightly related, but natsume is the only show where the style changes from season to season don't make me rage. probably because i'm too grateful for new episodes to care

Almost every day. First two I'd fund would be Aria and another season of Natsume. We still need Aria in BD quality.
>>
>>102112565
Dunno about Aria but I'm sure Brain's Base would be more than willing to make more Natsume considering past sales and merchandising. The manga author just needs to hurry up and create enough content.
>>
Why... ;_;
>>
>>102112565
I'd like Natsume, more SZS and a [C] remake.

And who knows, if I get a steady job, work a lot of overtime, live like I've had until now and invest all of my money in bonds I might be rich in thirty years.
>>
>>102112758
>The manga author just needs to hurry up and create enough content.
It's even worse since she put Natsume on a bi-monthly release now. So even slower new content.
>>
>>102113031
That's bs. She doesn't even make anything else besides Natsume.

Am I the only one who thinks that Natsume and Moomin are pretty similiar series?

Both are heavily athmospherical and usually have an episodical plot about encountering some new being or going on an adventure in a nearby area.

Except that Natsume is more mature and has character development that you couldn't expect from a kids' show, of course.
>>
>>102112758
Either way it's only a matter of time before BDs for Aria is released but yeah I do agree that a remake is unnecessary. Only thing I'm longing for was if it was made with modern animation and more consistent art like in the manga. >>102112850
Will you still love anime then as you do now though? Funding an anime solely by one person is pretty dam expensive though especially in our time is it not?
>>
>>102105867

There was two seasons to this anime right? I forgot what happens at the season finale and I just want to make sure I didn't miss a season. I think they find a dragon boy inside a little vase or something?
>>
>>102113350
>moomin
Never heard of it.
>>
>>102113275
And with how popular the series is, I'm sure she has at least one or 2 assistants. And the art in Natsume isn't that detailed either.

Maybe, she had a baby or something? I have no idea, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was personal reasons for the change.

>>102113461
There were 4 seasons.
Natsume Yuujinchou
Zoku
San
Shi
>>
Is there a Japanese name for that black figure that kept following Natsuume at a very snail pace?
>>
>>102113350
Kind of. Moomin is more like Winnie the Pooh than anything. If I had to compare Natsume to any show that isn't Mushishi I'd probably say Gin no Saji.
>>
>>102113559

When you say 4 seasons, do you mean 4 separate debutted seasons or did they just title them 4 seasons but aired them closely within each other's airdate where it seemed like 2 seasons?

Because I am not sure if I watched all of it or if there is still more to go. I finished what was there in 2008-09. The recent episode I can remember is the dragon kid they adopt.
>>
>>102113653
I don't remember any dragon kid, are you sure you're talking about Natsume?

And all of the Natsume seasons are 2-cour so there's no reason you should've confused them.
>>
>>102113431
That's something I've been thinking about, that one's priorities might change if you put all your energy into just making money.

Honestly I don't think it'll change though, seeing as how my interest in Japanese media haven't lessened in the least since I've moved around, changed jobs, etc.

>>102113502
It's an old, swe-finnish childrens' series adapted into anime format quite some time ago, quite a lot of people here watched it when they were kids, if you're part of that generation.
>>
>>102113736
>dragon kid

This one >>102110754
>>
>>102113653
There are 4 separate seasons with 13 episodes each.

The first aired in the summer then the second in following winter season (summer 2008, then winter 2009).

Then season three summer 2011, and season four winter 2012.
>>
>>102113736
He's talking about the youkai who hatched as a human since Natsume was the first being she glanced upon. She then evolves into her dragon being once they become independent. How can you forget this episode anon? It was cliche but still decent.
>>
>>102113653
The dragon kid was like episode 2 or 3 of S2.
>>
>>102112344
Aria and haibane.
>>
>>102113891
Tama-chan makes me cry every time. It just wanted Natsume to join him/her in the nest together ;_;
>>
>>102113923
>>102113855

Okay, then seasons 2 was the last episode I watched. I should pick it up again.
>>
Watching it now, betting on that it's searching for a snow lantern.
>>
What is the scariest youkai in this series?

Which one is the most sympathetic?
>>
>>102114308
Pic related was disturbing.

The best youkai was the teacup that killed itself to protect Natsume.
>>
>>102114308
Pic was pretty creepy, most threatening I thought.

Youkai from Natsume's past was probably most sympathetic, the one he thought was a human.
>>
>>102114201
Well that was way better than a snow lantern.

i just finished season 1. It was alright It was quite heartwarming. I liked that Natsume wasn't a complete whiner, and got stuff done.
