Natsume's Book of Friends, Vol. 5

Takashi thinks he's found a balance between yokai and friends when he goes with a group of classmates to a country inn for a marathon cram session before school starts again. But even the prosaic threat of homework can't keep the "other world" at bay, especially when the inn keeper has been dabbling in mermaid blood!...

Natsume's Book of Friends, Vol. 5 Reviews

    NOOOO I RAN OUT OF VOLUMES I OWN.

    God I love this series so much (I watched the anime previously, and ye season 4 is cominnn). All the feels. I need to buy the rest at some point. I'd read it online but I love having the physical copy in my hands; makes it more immersive imo. Plus I spend way too much time looking at a computer screen as is.

    Really liked this episode. I hope to see more of Tooru, since Natsume really could use some friends his own age.

    The icing on the cake was meeting Natsume's uncle and hearing stories of his meeting with the enigmatic Reiko. I hope we learn more about her as the story progresses.

    Something I forgot to mention in my past reviews are the end notes. In general I don't think end notes are super useful since they're removed from context, but the ones in Natsume are particularly hard to use because the p

    Something I forgot to mention in my past reviews are the end notes. In general I don't think end notes are super useful since they're removed from context, but the ones in Natsume are particularly hard to use because the pages are so infrequently numbered. So it's an arduous task to even figure out what the note is referencing. I'm glad there are notes, but I wish they'd find a better way of handling them.

    This is my favorite volume so far.

    The series Natsume’s Book of Friends has so far been characterized by a sense of loneliness and a desire for friends, both by Takashi Natsume’s and his deceased grandmother. Both of them consider themselves exiles and seek to make a connection with others.

    The series Natsume’s Book of Friends has so far been characterized by a sense of loneliness and a desire for friends, both by Takashi Natsume’s and his deceased grandmother. Both of them consider themselves exiles and seek to make a connection with others. However, in volume 5, Takashi Natsume starts to realize something that his grandmother wasn’t able to learn - that there are other isolated people out there who also crave a sense of community and friendship. In this volume, Takashi Natsume creates new connections with other social outsiders (human and Yokai) and begins to find his place in a world that too often expects conformity

    Awesome stories and beautiful art.

    The stories in this volume of Natsume were also shown in the anime, so they were familiar to me. But - as is often the case - the manga can dwell more on the details and show different aspects.

    We haven't got such a heartbreaking cute episode as the one with the snowbunny/nature guardian in this volume, but I liked the story about grandmother Reiko and the child who would grow up to be the husband of the family that Takashi is now living with.

    The episode with the girl who cursed because she had seen a yokai in a circle was strong, too. I wonder if she will show up more than she did in the anime.

    Tanuma, the boy who can feel yokai but not see them so well, finally was used again, to give another view on Takashi's life.

    I think the emphasis in this volume lay most on the fact that Takashi realizes that he is willing to keep lying to people whom he has come to love, to spare them worry - and he's starting to realize that this decision can be very problematic, too.

    This series is consistently high in quality.

    Volume 5 continues to be primarily episodic. There are slight differences in structure this time: a larger multi-chapter story, and a half-length and action-free final story that ends rather anticlimactically.

    We also get a little more exposure to Natsume's uncle and grandmother.

    Ich mag sehr, wie sich die Charaktere und die Story entwickeln. Lässt sich gut lesen, möchte gerne noch die anderen Bände lesen.
