Summary and Preview

Natsume's just an ordinary kid, except he can see spirits just like his grandma Reiko could. Reiko used to bully the spirits and bound them to her will in the "Book of Friends". Now that Natsume has inherited this book, a never-ending stream of spirits is coming after him to retreive their names from the Book. With the help of a spirit "cat" (who says he just wants Natsume to die so he can have the book), Natsume spends his days dissolving the contracts that bind the spirits and trying not to get killed. [From Storm in Heaven]

Review by Midnightthief
I first found it my manga, then later found the anime. I enjoyed both thoroughly and would recommend this to anyone who likes the supernatural. I found it refreshing and something different from what i usually read and i really enjoyed the art. Permalink " "
