It was very mellow and serene, even during the action scenes, which is unlike any other series I have seen before, and you think that it would make it boring, but it was not. I was also expecting it to be unoriginal but the way he goes about releasing the spirits and he sees a glimpse of his grandmother and how she interacted with the spirit was... well original. The tone of the episode also helped greatly with immersing me in the world, and within that episode I can already feel an attachment towards Natsume, and also Madara. I liked the OP and ED and the music playing during the episode only enhanced the mood of the story. The animation was good. It wasn't flashy nor dark, they stuck to earth based colors, which helped set the mood. Overall, I wasn't really expecting much going into this, but now I am patiently awaiting the next episode.
