Natsume Yuujinchou

Jun 30, 2011

Here are the resume of my thoughts compensating the usual long review. Sorry about that folks.

 

Opening: Did not have the opportunity to watch it yet due to my file episodes.

Ending: Same thing here.

 

Positive points

- A great natural country feel to the series. Soothing and relaxing.

- Kamiya Hiroshi's great performance

- Great twist on traditionnal japanese folklore

- Animation have a natural feel to it

- Great lead character

- Original portrayal of youkai

- Great comedic sense along with nostalgia

- Excellent last episode

 

Negative points

- Animation may seem bland and ordinary at first

- Episodes follow more or less the same pattern

- Music is unremarkable

 

Overall: Natsume Yuujinchou was a great series with an classic premise - seeing things is not new in animation- done right. It's charcaterization was purely original and excellent. I highly enjoyed it but it's pattern was a bit on the boring side. I will gladly watch the sequels because I'm hooked. Also, I'll try to get the manga. Yes, I'm impressed by this charming little series.

Score: 4 / 5. Good.

 

Next. Seirei No Moribito
