Takashi Natsume continues to return the names of the spirits that have been written in the "Book of Friends" he inherited from his grandmother, Reiko Natsume. While Natsume is still aided by the chubby Nyanko-sensei, he's now helped by some of the friends he had made in his journey; be it human beings or spirits. As he becomes closer to both, Natsume faces the inevitable question of the sides he has to take especially when there is a conflict between the two.

The first 3 seasons of the Natsume Yuujinchou series sowed many seeds from which to develop the story and characters. All of us have secrets that can sometimes make us feel alone in this world. There are somethings that the rest of the world won't or simply can't understand. Can you truly have friends who don't know important things about you? As Natsume gets more involved with the world of Youkai these questions are explored. The series continues to follow a slow-paced episodic style. What makes this season my favourite is the balance between tales of interesting Youkai with and the story of Natsume's growth as a character. Animation The standard of animation follows the previous seasons. There a range of interesting character drawings, nice backgrounds and occasional action scenes. It is largely flawless but nothing spectacular. Nonetheless, its a joy to watch. Sound The sound track is appropriate, with a nice OP and ED. The voice acting is also flawless. Characters Character development is arguably one of the greatest strenghts of this show. Natsume is continually tested and grows as a person. However, there are many other well rounded interesting characters we learn more about during this season. The characters are often asked to make decisions with no right or wrong answer. Although some Youkai are simply evil, we most characters are an interesting shades of grey. Overall Its rare for Anime to go beyond 2 seasons and maitain such a high quality. However the fourth season of Natsume has proven to be the best so far. This is largely due to character and story development in the earlier seasons. Nonetheless, this has been one the most enjoyale series I have watched and I can't wait for the next season!
No. of Episodes: 13 episodesGenre: Drama, Fantasy, Shoujo, Slice of life, SupernaturalPlot:The story is an extension to the original Natsume Yuujinchou series dealing with Youkai and Humans. "Natsume" named after his grandmother inherits the book of friends which contains the names of youkai(Demons in japanese Mythology) defeated by his grandmother.The holder of the book weilds the power to command youkai and as a result the book becomes dangerous in the hands of a wrong person.Teaming up with a fox demon(disguised as a cat who he calls sensei),Natsume tries to return the names of the youkai written in the book of friends.The story also concentrates on how natsume overcomes his weaknesses against evil youkai.The Good and the Bad:In my view, there aren't any weak points about this anime.Only that the viewer might find Natsume undepowered but that's how the anime rolls!Overall Rating:8.5 is a good enough number for this pleasant anime.Final verdict: If you are a fan of "slice of life anime", this one is a must watch!
And again Natsume 4 is so great, the story is beautiful. Animation is perfect. The begin song is good and of course as normal by Natsume the end song is so special, it give you every episode a great feeling. I realy like the characters, they are serious and sometimes with a lot of humor. I realy enjoy to watch Natsume 5.
