With friends like these, enemies are overkill. R to L (Japanese Style). Takashi Natsume can see the spirits and demons that hide from the rest of humanity. He has always been set apart from other people because of his gift, drifting from relative to relative, never fitting in. Now he is a troubled high school student who has come to live in the small town where his grandmother grew up. And there he discovers that he has inherited more than just the Sight from the mysterious Reiko.

My Thoughts: Natusme’s Book of Friends (or Natsume Yuujinchou in Japanese) is a great manga, though fighting is kept to a minimum, which really disappoints me since I am more into fighting manga.

I’n my opinion, Natsume is a Unique character, unlike most characters who are righteous, passionate, and courageous, Natsume actually prefers to stay out of conflict.

My favorite character though has to be “Sensei” The Cat-like beast. while in his cat form he is the perfect comic relief. But he turns into a freaking Cool-dude when he unleashes his power.
