Natsume's Book of Friends [Natsume Yuujinchou ] DVD Movie - Ephemeral Bond -
(Japanese Ver) Anime
Ever since he was little, Takashi Natsume has
been able to see what others could not, namely monstrous spirits known as
Yokai. Natsume's late grandmother, Reiko, would challenge Yokai to contests
and the ones that lost had to sign a contract with her, binding their names
to her "Yujin-cho." Ever since Natsume has inherited the book, together with
Nyanko Sensei, his self-proclaimed bodyguard, he spends his days trying to
return the names within the book to their owners.
Natsume has been busy, navigating between humans and Yokai when he coincidentally
reunites with an old classmate, Yuki. It brings back painful memories of a certain
Yokai. Meanwhile, Natsume also became acquainted with Yorie Tsumura, a woman
in the memories of a Yokai whose name he had returned. Yorie knew much about
Reiko, but now lived a peaceful life with her only son, Mukuo. Being with this
family was comforting for Natsume, but apparently a mysterious Yokai has been
lurking in their town.
On the way back from investigating, a "Yokai seed" that had latched itself to
Nyanko Sensei drops into the Fujiwaras' garden and grows overnight into a fruit
tree. When Nyanko Sensei eats a fruit that is somehow shaped like himself, he
suddenly splits into three!
