    While I admit I'm not entirely caught up with this series as of yet, one of the things I love the most about "Natsume Yuujinchou" is that you can pretty much start at any volume in the manga and still be able to get oriented and easily sink into the story. Midorikawa is a ridiculously talented storyteller and artist, and volume 13 in the "Natsume" saga is just all the more proof of that. If you haven't started this series yet, while volume 13 isn't the ideal place to start, it's still a great on [...]

    In the first part of the volume, Matoba offers Natsume a job. Natsume doesn't want to accept, but he does agree to help with Matoba's little problem, a mask yokai hiding somewhere in his gathering of exorcists. Natori helps Natsume out by getting rid of Matoba's letter. The next part of the volume is a bit from Nishimura's POV - how he and Natsume met and became friends. He never realizes it, but (view spoiler)[Natsume took care of a yokai that had been plaguing his family. (hide spoiler)] The v [...]

    (Since killed quite a long review from me just now, I am too tired to redo it and now you're stuck with the gist of it.)In SHORT:Magical, personal and quietly brilliant.In DETAIL:Themes: Being different, loneliness, creatures from myth and legend, friendship and camaraderie and the meaning of family.Setting:Rural Japan in all its loveliness! (When it comes to a time period I’d say, roughly the ‘here and now’.)Atmosphere:At once magical and ordinary. The focus on interpersonal relationship [...]

    This volume focuses a lot on the exorcist way, we have Natori and Matoba, who are at opposite ends of how they treat and use yokai and both come from old exorcist families - there's quite a bit of info about the set-up of these family-heritage yokai hunters. It seems plausible that the Natsume family is also a lost yokai-hunter family.Takashi manages to keep the knowledge of the book of friends from Matoba - at least he thinks he does (I'm not so sure) - and there even seems to have been an hone [...]

    I have to admit that I read this one before reading the ones before it so I may be missing something. However, we have further interactions with Natsume and Matoba. Again, Matoba tries to coerce Natsume into joining his group who are ruthless and holds yokai in distain. Natsume is persuaded to help Matoba against the lastest Yokai threat but must decide whether the safety of those he love is worth joining Matoba.In the end, it is the same cycle with Natsume. I think why I keep coming back and re [...]

    I really love Natsume's book of friends. It's an incredibly gentle manga. I say gentle, not because it has no fighting, but because the storyline is so soft, and the characters are so precious. Natsume is the kind of boy you'd want to protect, and all of his friends are so sweet and understanding. I think you can really understand Natsume, and why he does what he does. It's beautifully drawn, very gentle.This is a gentle manga.Only I do get scared by the yokai sometimes

    I really loved the special episodes with Nishimura and Kitamoto. It's always interesting to see a character from a different perspective, and it was great to be able to get to know these two better.

    Hier haben wir eine Story mit Matoba, wo Natsume einen Yokai finden soll, der Besitz von Menschen ergreift. Zum Schluss noch zwei Geschichten, bei denen wir Natsume aus der Sicht seiner Freunde sieht, die nichts mit Yokai zu tun haben. Interessanter Blickwinkel!

    ~4-4.5/5[Also available on my blog.]This volume was so good. Overall, every volume of this series is good, but sometimes there’s a slower one, filled with one shots and nothing with his friends or family, but then sometimes there are ones like this one, where you really get to know a characters more, with some kind of development.The first three chapters of this volume were focused on one story, and it was so good. Natsume runs into some trouble with a yokai, and gets a letter from Matoba (a s [...]

    While I admit I'm not entirely caught up with this series as of yet, one of the things I love the most about "Natsume Yuujinchou" is that you can pretty much start at any volume in the manga and still be able to get oriented and easily sink into the story.

    This arc was nothing short of perfect!! It was a big step forward seeing Natsume gets deeper into the world of exorcists after getting that unexpected odd request from Matoba-the seemingly evil exorcist clan head who exploits both Yokai and exorcist alike. I loved how Natsume carried himself in this volume. To see that he was willing to go to great lengths not just to protect the Fujiwaras and his friends but also Natori (#Ihaveforevershippedit!!lol Don't even ask. There is just something there. [...]

    When I saw this on Edelweiss, I knew nothing about it, and only got it because I wanted to find out what it's about. I admit that starting reading on Vol.13 was probably not the smartest move ever, but I was curious. And, I figured that any manga series that currently has FOUR SEASONS OF ANIME out MUST BE GOOD. I stand by that statement, and do not regret my decision.----------------------- Natsume is an exorcist, who has a knack for seeing that which others cannot. This cause Motoba to come for [...]

    it's rare that i like a series more as it goes on, especially since a lot of manga are navigating marine life of various sizes if not quite jumping the shark by this point in a series. but Natsume just keeps getting better. i'm not sure how she does it. maybe it's that Nyanko-sensei's expressions are always varied and fresh, and always make me laugh. maybe it's that the stories are perfectly balanced between the continuing narrative and Natsume's backstory, and the episodic structure the series [...]

    Matoba is back and plotting to use Natsume. Fortunately, Natsume has his own way of doing things that Matoba just can't understand or interrupt because Matoba is a creepy, crazy guy and Natsume is far more kind-hearted than many people with his upbringing. We get to see how his friendships with Nishimura and Kitamoto formed as well as their home lives. It's good to see the other characters fill out and become more than just methods for Natsume to grow as a human capable of interacting with other [...]

    I really liked the first story that had to do with the exorcists. That was very interesting, and I really liked it. But the other two I didn't much care for. They didn't have the usual spark of the story, especially since they weren't about yokai. It felt like it was recapping on how awful Natsume's life has been. My favorite part was seeing Natsume dressed up as a Yokai. He was really cute like that. I was kind of expecting that there be something about how he was treated when he was pretending [...]

    In this manga volume we delve into the world of exorcists when Natsume is blackmailed into helping out the exorcist, Matoba, with a traitor in their midst. Hopefully Natsume is tempted to join their ranks in later volumes. The following chapters were lighter and involved Natsume's new friends, Nishimura and Kitamoto. It was interesting to see how they perceive Natsume. I now wonder what Mantoba and Natori are both planning around Natsume?

    This was the first volume of this manga that let me down a little bit. It felt like we really didn't get anywhere on any level in the main storyis was nearly made up for by the bonus stories detailing how Natsume got to know his two best friends at school, and what they initially thought of them. It was a cute and fun look back, and I enjoyed it immensely.

    liked the side stories with natsume's friends on the end. i was talking with my brother about how it's difficult to predict an ending for this series -- it's so low key and slice-of-life that i can't really see a natural ending point. i think maybe the conflict introduced with the other exorcists might give something like a plot structure to put an end to. we'll see. :) 4 stars

    This volume was a bit slow going, but we did see more of the side characters and their first impressions of Natsume, as well as some more info on Matoba.

    Oooh, the Matoba arc! I realised that I forgot a lot of the stories in between the volumes that I didn't buy, I had fun!

    More background on the odd world of exorcists, as well as a flashback to Natsume's first days at school from the points of view of his two buddies.

    In this volume, Natsume is more powerful (but less manipulative) than Matoba. We also get some backstory on his friends Nishimura and Kitamoto! A nice balance of ominous with happy feelings.

    I bought this volume to continue he story after the anime, I liked the exorcist arc with Matoba and Loved the chapters about how Natsume met his friends for the 1st time.

    I'm always impressed with how the author makes such a gentle story about the supernatural. Another great volume.

    Some stories centering around Natsume's friends rather than Natsume himself. I really liked this change of perspective. :)
