Hey guys, I’m screaming inside and out when I found out that Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume’s Book of Friends) is returning for its 5th season this fall of 2016. It is my all-time favorite anime ever and one of the most heartwarming series in anime history.
Yuki Midorikawa’s Natsume’s Book of Friends (Natsume Yūjin-Chō) manga is inspiring a fifth TV anime season according to the May issue of Hakusensha’s Monthly LaLa magazine on Thursday. The magazine revealed the Natsume’s Book of Friends 5th season will premiere this fall. In addition, the issue also features a 46-page chapter of the manga furnish with a colored opening page.
The anime seasons and Midorikawa’s original manga revolve around Natsume, a boy who has been able to see ghosts since he was little. Unfortunately, humans shun him, and there is not much fondness between him and ghosts either. One day, he inherits a Yūjin-Chō (“Book of Friends”) from his grandmother. The book is actually full of contracts that his grandmother made to trap ghosts. As one ghost after another shows up, Natsume tries to release or help them — even while many of them seek vengeance on him.
