Natsume Yuujinchou is possibly the most powerful, thought-provoking anime I’ve ever seen. If you love this anime, may these Natsume Yuujinchou merchandise will suit your taste.
The amount of emotions you’ll experience is nothing short of incredible, especially when you consider the anime’s 13 episode length.
This time, we will give you a complete list of anime merchandise related to Natsume Yuujinchou series.
DVD and Blu-ray
Season 1 and 2 Standard Edition
Natsume Yuujinchou or “Natsume’s Book of Friends” is a bittersweet slice of the life story of a high school boy, Takashi Natsume (first name, last name) who has the ability to see “youkai” or “demons,” and has been passed from relative to relative (sometimes not even a relative) throughout his life and shunned by his peers, teachers, and guardians alike because of this ability.
At the start of this anime, Natsume has been living with his current guardians for about a month and has, by this point, learned to hide his supernatural ability from the people around him.
This story follows his various encounters with youkai – both peaceful and power-hungry – and other humans, and his gradually growing trust and happiness in his current situation.
This specific DVD set contains the seasons 1 & 2 of the series. The Natsume Yuujinchou anime has a total of 4 seasons.
This DVD set has 26 episodes total, each season taking up 2 DVDs – for a total of 4 DVDs in this set.
Audio is Japanese ONLY. THIS IS NOT A DUB. Subtitles are in English. All four DVDs come in a single DVD case, stacked one-on-top-of-the-other (as opposed to other American DVD cases designed like a book with one DVD per “page”; not fanned out like “The Lord of the Rings” Extended Edition DVD set).
The case is sturdy and holds all 4 DVDs with no issue. The green pamphlet shown in the product picture is a folded sheet of paper listing the episodes with short summaries and is found on the inside of the DVD case (where you would normally find promotion codes, advertisements, etc.).
The anime has a relaxing atmosphere I’ve never seen captured in another show. It’s gorgeously animated and the voice acting is good.
Watch Natsume grow as a person as he interacts with people and yokai. Subtitles were fine, picture quality fine as well.
Season 3 Combo Set Standard Edition
Natsume Yuujin-chou continues to delight. Strange yokai are introduced and dealt with and old friends return to visit.
If you enjoyed the first 2 seasons of Natsume, you will enjoy this season as well.
If you haven’t seen the first 2 seasons, you could probably jump in right here without too much confusion, but that would be a waste, so go watch the first 2 seasons!
The third season is 13 episodes long. The set is in the same format as the first one (which if you didn’t’ know, actually contains seasons 1 & 2).
Everything comes stored in a long hardcover case that contains the complete series on 2 DVDs and the complete series on 2 Blu-ray discs.
Also included (and probably the reason for the long case) is a full color, 32-page hardcover art book.
It includes detailed character info, an episode guide, rough sketches, and Japanese BD/DVD package illustrations. The cover is modeled after the Book of Friends.
Season 4 Standard Edition Hybrid
Very slow-paced in the mood of a slice of life. A lot of the episodes can easily leave one on the verge of tears due to the sad tales within, but overall very uplifting.
I recommend this to anime fans who love the slower-paced, a slice of life shows.
Takashi Natsume Action Figure
From the heart-rending, nostalgic anime Natsume’s Book of Friends comes a beautiful new 1/8 scale statue of Takashi Natsume himself!
Takashi, a boy born with a natural ability to see spirits, is posed on a super-detailed 3D base along with his companion, the spirit Madara, or Nyanko-sensei.
Depicted taking it easy in a natural setting, everything from the ripples of the water (created with clear materials), to the moss on the tree have been faithfully reproduced.
You can even detach the kimono Takashi has over his shoulder for more display possibilities.
He has a very nice size, beautiful detail, a well-made figure, very pleased with it, it’s calming to look at.
Natsume’s face and the expression is very well painted, something I hardly see in PVC figurines.
Even Nyanko Sensei is well designed. Alter managed to capture his personality, in his simple depiction of struggling to climb up the branch.
More action figure, please visit Takashi Natsume merchandise.
Madara Action Figure
Madara action figure by Banpresto is a tribute gallery “Hoshizora no Shita de” Prize-C. This figure is large and beautiful. I love Madara and am happy to have him on my shelf.
Nyanko Sensei Plush Doll
It is an authentic stuffed Nyankosensei that you can get in Japan from crane games and the sort which would likely cost even more than outright buying it online. Plus it saves you the need to find space in your suitcase as well.
For more plush, bags, and much more, please visit Nyanko Sensei merchandise.
