Takashi Natsume is a boy who's been able to see youkai ever since he was a child. Ever since he inherited the "Book of Friends" from his grandmother Reiko, he and his self-proclaimed bodyguard Nyanko-sensei have spent their days returning names to the youkai who are bound by the book. As he meets the different youkai and people, he finds himself with many more things that he cares about. He wonders whether it's right to keep secrets to protect someone as little by little he works up the courage to build even more friendships.

Anyone going into this should know that this is the fifth season! If you haven't seen the first, second, third, or fourth seasons then you should immediately go and do so because you are seriously missing out on something extraordinarily special. This series relaxes your soul. If I've had the day from hell I sit down and turn on an episode from this series and just ... unwind. I always feel refreshed and ... cleansed, I guess, from my hellish bad day. This series never fails to make me feel better, happier, and unburdened. I go into this series stressed out and wanting to cry and come out smiling and relaxed. Always. I've been hoping for another season for years! Four incredibly long years to be exact! But, five minutes into this anime and that four year wait was completely forgotten! I was slightly worried because the Natsume Yuujinchou series has always had the same animation studio, but for this installment another animation studio picked it up. However, I'm pleased to tell you that they've done a fabulous job of keeping the animation style, the pacing, and everything else we've come to love about the series flush with our expectations as if there was no studio switch at all... I'm very relieved about this to be completely honest (you have no idea how much). Anyway, from the start of this fifth installment we're given more hints as to Reiko's past and, although this season it didn't give us much in the way of satisfying our curiosity about her we were still thown a few bones to wet our appetite for more. Also this season we found out a little more about Matoba Seiji and Natori Shuuichi. Which is always a plus! I adore Natori and find Matoba very, very interesting! If you're a fan of this series then this season is a definite must! ;D Plus, the SIXTH season is already green lit for sometime in 2017! Time to celebrate that we don't have to wait another four years for the next installment! xD
This is infact the best season of natsume book of friends as in this season 2 whole episodes were dedicated to some side characters and we got to know more about natsume reiko too. I am really happy that i started this series because this is definitely an underrated show and it doesn't get the attention it deserves.the op this time was ok and the ed had good lyrics but I don't like the singer who sang it so ut wss a no for me. The animation got better and as always it lacks something I can't seem to explain. But the fact that many characters are voiced by famous voice actors make the anime a whole better. And btw i think i forgot to mention this on my previous reviews. Natsume book of friends is a slice of life show that u can binge watch.
