>your favorite show gets a fifth season
Man, I am so envious. But is Natsume so it's fine.
>your favorite show gets a second and third season.
She made a promise and didn't ever go back. Ever. How fucking shitty must her personality be? Holy fuck, to even do that to a youkai with seemingly mental disabilities is even worse.
Reiko is trash. And Nyanko-sensei flat out tells Natsume that she was not a good person. When Natsume flat-out denied that is when I dropped this series for good.
Just think how long that youkai was waiting at the bus stop. 30 years? Think of how Reiko's fucking terrible personality almost ended up killing her grandson because she never went and resolved the conflict between the two youkai, which led to one being consumed with rage as time went on.
Reiko's actions are indefensible. She is a horrible person. And it's one thing for Natsume to undo all his grandma's midoings, but to do so while claiming that she was a good person? Fuck that.
Sounds like you have some personal issues with the topic.
Forgetting or breaking a promise, even an important one, is pretty human.
Natsume is willing to overlook Reiko's actions because he understands how it could happen. They both share a tumultuous life where it could be just too easy to forget or break promises.
She was a schoolgirl. What fucking thing could cause her to forget that she promised THE NEXT DAY to go and help the slow youkai get back with his buddy.
It's not like the promise involved something that would make it easy to be forgotten or was weeks/months afterward. She left him at the train stop, told him she'd be back, and then never ever came back.
Fuck her. She is a horrible person. Which is why Natsume has to fucking fix the shit she broke.
wow your entire post is makes a lot of sense when you look at it from an outside perspective. the characters must also see things the exact way we do right? and everyone remembers everything perfect all the time
I don't know. Being harassed by other youkai, townspeople, family, etc. Like what happens often to Natsume.
Or maybe she just didn't care enough to go back. I couldn't blame her. They are monsters. She's under no true obligation to go back and help. Not even a promise given in the moment.
You should watch the rest of the series.
I'll watch the rest of the series when Natsume accepts Nyanko's wisdom that Reiko was not a good person, or at least that she was completely self-serving/selfish girl who didn't give a rats ass about anything but herself.
>she was completely self-serving/selfish girl who didn't give a rats ass about anything but herself.
Reiko had a hard life.
She found a kid in the ayakashi forest and she told her how to get out but the kid was like "no i dropped my doll i want to find it" so reiko agreed to find the doll for her and bring it to her afterwards and when she steals it from the ayakashi who took the doll she finds out the kid has already moved on and gotten a new doll but the mother thinks reiko stole it so she tries to take it back to the ayakashi she stole it from because "If I take it home they'll just think i stole it"
I dont know why you can't view it, i'm reading it no problem or I wouldn't have used that link.
>your favourite show doesn't get second season, not even OVA
>actually soon after the anime broadcast, manga ends as well
Why would the mother think she stole the doll? In what sort of sense would a thief return a stolen object if they were never caught in the act?
That's fucking retarded. When you said she had a hard life I thought she actually had a hard life. What a cunt.
>your favorite anime is completely self-contained and doesn't need a sequel
HOPE NEVER DIES!
GA BROS WILL GET A 5TH SEASON!
Thank you anon, that was so sweet. I need to read more of the manga finally.
Natsume should go full battle shounen.
>your favourite show gets a second season
>Off series with Reiko going around as a battle shounen
I want to be bullied by Reiko all day long and hug her and be nice to her when she gets tired
Make way, best ED coming through.
You guys should read Hotarubi no Mori e as well. Same author, one of the stories was adapted as a decent movie (though I prefer the manga myself).
