Natsume’s Book of Friends Fourth Season
Liam: Just like the past three seasons, this is a great and lovable series as always. This is something that stays close to me and I always look forward to it. To summarize, Natsume is just a heartwarming, yet dark, mysterious anime about a child’s past, and how he’s overcome it, yet how he became a better person too. He can see youkai, and it kinda ruined his childhood, yet he’s still able to help youkai, and people alike. Natsume can make you cry, happy, joyful, and put you on the edge of your seat at times. It’s an enjoyable anime that can be exciting, sad, and dark at the same time. It has always been my favourite to watch and I love Mondays because of it. Just the good vibes it gives you as you’re watching, and a nice, funny, heartwarming story in every episode.
Alex: Considering I blogged the majority of this series, i’d like to contribute somehting to the review. I was ever-so-slightly sad to see the very last episode of Natsume, but it’s hit a fine 52 episodes, and i’m glad it ended before it became bad. This season focused more on Natsume’s past and how it affected him into the future, but the one thing I did miss was a Reiko-centred episode. He meets people who used to hate him and people who used to be interested in him, and along the way he does he usual act of making the youkai world a better place.
The big youkai twist this time around was how his friends are slowly starting to get involved in the youkai world, and how he’s started to walk down a path where nobody walked before. The dark episodes of this season were probably the best ones, yet I can’t help but want more of them…which is sad because I doubt Natsume will be coming back. Anyway, as usual, Natsume scores a perfect 10/10 from me…surprise surprise. xD
If you havn’t watched Natsume, then this review probably isn’t the best place to start. If you go through the review index, you can find all 3 past seasons there. But if you have, then know that this season takes what the others had and expands on it even more, creating a perfect experience for viewers to enjoy.
Alex’s Score: 10 out of 10 Meeps (Masterpiece)
