Natsume Yuujinchou Season 7 Release Date

The production of an anime series, however, involves many steps, and the process might be lengthy. While we wait for Season 7 to premiere, let’s look into some potential launch chances.

Natsume Yuujinchou Storyline

Takashi Natsume inherited the unique ability to perceive and communicate with ykai from his deceased maternal grandmother, Reiko. Because of this talent, he grew up isolated and misunderstood by his peers. He had also been handed down from one generation of his father’s family to the next. Reiko’s grandson inherited her Book of Friends after she passed away at a young adult age. The book listed the names of hundreds of spirits who Reiko had coerced into servitude.

In the spirit world, the Book of Friends is extremely valuable, and spirits, both good and evil, are constantly on the lookout for Takashi so that they can steal it. In his spare time, Takashi releases the numerous spirits who come to him and dissolves the agreements that Reiko made. On the contrary, evil spirits are after him and Madara (whom Takashi refers to as “Nyanko-sensei”) in order to get their hands on the potent Book of Friends. Madara acts as a protector and spiritual guide for Takashi, but his true motivation is to gain control of the Book of Friends after Takashi’s death. Later, he grows fonder of Takashi, and Takashi develops feelings for Madara in kind.

Takashi meets Natori Suuichi, an exorcist and one of the few humans who are capable of perceiving and bringing down spirits via certain banishing or sealing spells, but he also meets Matoba Seiji, a dangerous adversary who wants Takashi to join him and his nefarious clan of exorcists. To better understand his maternal grandmother and the profound spiritual bond he shares with her, Takashi is determined to make public all of the identities before the scheming Matoba clan or other malevolent spirits exploit them for their own ends.
