Natsume's just an ordinary kid, except he can see spirits, just like his grandma Reiko could. Reiko, though, used to bully the spirits, and bound them to her will in the "Book of Friends". Now that Natsume has inherited this book, a never-ending stream of spirits is coming after him. With the help of a spirit "cat" (who really just wants Natsume to die so he can have the book), Natsume spends his days dissolving the contracts that bind the spirits and trying not to get killed.
Natsume est juste un enfant ordinaire, sauf qu'il peut voir les esprits, tout comme sa grand-mère Reiko pouvait. Reiko, cependant, utilisé pour intimider les esprits, et les liait à sa volonté dans le «Livre des Amis". Maintenant que Natsume a hérité de ce livre, un flot incessant des esprits est à venir après lui. Avec l'aide d'un esprit «chat» (qui vraiment veut juste Natsume mourir afin qu'il puisse avoir le livre), Natsume passe ses journées à dissoudre les contrats qui lient les esprits et essayant de ne pas se faire tuer.

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Slice of Life, Supernatural
Adapted from the manga, Natsume's Book of Friends - Manga. Also made into animes, Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou and Natsume Yuujinchou San and Natsume Yuujinchou Shi.
It's a fair effort at serious fantasy with enough atmosphere and original premise. But I don't see a lot of plot potential and the most interesting character is restricted to flashbacks, since she's been dead along time. I probably won't look for another episode.
While this series might be more laid back than action freaks might endure to watch, I find it enjoyable, refreshing change from the standard faire of shows. While the main character is bit introvert due to his ability to see spirits, he's slowly learning from those spirits who knew is grandmother, that his disability may be his greatest asset.
