Natsume Yuujinchou San (2011)

Natsume Yuujin-Chou San

Natsume had the ability to see spirits, a power he inherited from his grandmother Reiko. when Reiko was alive, she challenged many spirits, making them write their name in the Yuujin-Chou (the Book of Friends). Yuujin-chou was a prized item in the spirit world, the owner having the power to control the spirits whose name was written in it. Yuujin-chou was passed down to Natsume, where he released the spirits who came to him for their names. some tried to kill him, but Madara who served as Natsume's bodyguard protected him when things got too dangerous for a human to handle.

despite being the third continuous season of Natsume Yuujin-Chou (2008), the anime remained highly entertaining and ended without a closure as usual. Madara, in both his cat form as well as spirit form, appeared more in this season than the previous. he was absolutely fun to watch, despite ordering Natsume around, blaming him for releasing the name of the spirits, still he would protect Natsume without as much as a second thought during crisis. Natsume on the other hand, had a growing connection with humans, which he lacked in childhood. his growth was indeed a welcoming scene compared to his struggles in the previous seasons.
