Talking about another anime series, Natsume’s Book of Friends Season 7 is one of the most interesting Animes available out there which is a fantasy-based anime showing the adventure of a boy who has the weird ability to see spirits around him. Through the whole series, he is in chase of finding the different secrets related to his existence with such an extraordinary ability and is also eager to know the way of releasing the spirits mentioned in ‘ Book Of Friends ‘ which is filled with names of troubled spirits. The anime series has released six seasons till now it and still a lot of events are yet to be shown which are mentioned in the manga from which this series is inspired.
The most interesting aspect about this series is that the series has shown characters and the spirits very beautifully, without making it horrifying, or without making it a nightmare for the children watching it. Overall, the series was a success in grabbing a large group of viewers and had really liked by people belonging to the young age and teenage groups.
I would suggest that this series must be watched by the children and teens as they will be more interested to watch content shown by the series than their adult counterparts. The background music played in it is making it more attention-grabbing. Here we will discuss the series Natsume’s Book of Friends Season 7.

Natsume’s Book of Friends season 7 Story
The story of the anime series revolves around a boy Natsume, who is the lead of the series and has a strange ability to see the troubled spirits, known as yokai. They seem to be following him all the time with some reasons behind it, which is not known by Natsume. His life was a bit more problematic than a typical 15 years old school-going boy rather than just academic performances and peer pressure. As the story continues, he ended up finding out the ‘ Book of friends ‘ passed from his grandmother which had all the names of the spirits captured and brought by her and who were also controlled by her. As he was the new successor of the book, the troubled spirits started to haunt him in hope that he will realize their problems and will work for solving them.
He had a little cat-like creature named Madara who served for him as a bodyguard, according to the creature, but Natsume was unaware of his real intentions and allows him to sit on his back and lets him provide the feeling of security to him. They both then began their journey to freeing yokai that was troubled by her grandmother’s deeds.
