Nyanko Sensei is recovering after being wounded in the last yokai incident, so Takashi is on his own when he accidentally releases a yokai right before the school festival.

But does he stand a chance without Nyanko Sensei's power to back him up?

HASH(0x9ef8f36c) out of 5 stars I'm liking this series... Dec 26 2011

Format: Paperback
I've read all of the previous volumes in this series, and enjoyed them. The stories have mostly been one to two shots, a different story with a different yokai each time, although there are several yokai and people that show up again and again. It's mostly just fun, interesting stories, although because there isn't much of a moving plot, it can be a slow read. Usually I have a hard time starting the next volume but enjoy it when I do.
In this volume, it started with a school festival and some classmates of Natsume's. Tanuma and Taki help him in the first chapter as well as the two following it. I liked seeing them, and I hope they become main characters as well. I like them, and I liked seeing them all together, interacting. Natsume is very awkward with people, and he needs friends, so I hope they show up more. The first three chapters yokai isn't very memorable, except that the yokai in the second took over Tanuma and he got to see the yokai like Natsume does on a regular basis. It was interesting seeing how the both of them feel and nice that they worked it out.
The next two chapters were more background story. It showed how Natsume met the Fujiwara's before he went to live with them. They were sweet in how they went about trying to get him to live with them, and I liked seeing more of them, getting to know more of their characters and how they got where they are now.
It's always sad seeing Natsume when he was younger, because he always had trouble with the yokai and trying not to let them bother the people he was with while not letting them know anything, and how it never worked out for him. He was such a sad, lonely kid, and it's nice that he's mostly gotten over it and knows how to deal with the yokai better now.
The last little special chapter was on a yokai, Chobi. I like when Midorikawa does the little special chapters in the end with the yokai interacting with Natsume. They're entertaining, even if not all that memorable. This one was about the same as all the others.
Over all, I liked this volume, possibly more than some of the previous ones, because it got more into the characters and background story. And I like seeing Natsume with human friends. I hope there's more of that in future volumes.

I really enjoy "Natsume's Book of Friends." It strikes up a sense of nostalgia for me. I can also relate to the main character, Natsume, and his loneliness. Beautiful illustrations. Enchanting and endearing story.

The character development of Takashi Natsume continues with this volume exploring his relationships with his human friends especially Tanuma and Taki. It has been a while since Natsume has given any Yokai their name back from the Book of Friends. The book still serves to attract Yokai to Natsume but the emphasis is more on his relationships with the Yokai and with humans. Love the series!

Great continuation of the series. Got hooked on the anime first, but the manga is still just as good.
