Description: Natsume’s just an ordinary kid, except he can see spirits, just like his grandma Reiko could. Reiko, though, 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. With the help of a spirit “cat” (who really 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.

Contains an extra in vol. 7 called Natsu ni wa Tameiki wo Tsuku (Heave a Sigh in Summer).

i love this manga. the story is good and so the art! i love natsume and nyanko-sensei….. the art isn’t very complicated and very interesting. the anime is even better…. i remembered i cried watching it. anyway, both the anime and the manga is a must to read and watch!

Yuki Midorikawa (緑川ゆき Midorikawa Yuki, born May 23, 1976) is a Japanese manga artist.
Birth Place: Kumamoto, Japan
Zodiac: Gemini🙂
The surname of her pen name was chosen by her sister, and is the name of a river in Kumamoto. It means ‘Green River’(* 1). Midorikawa-sensei loves her home town, and she often takes inspiration for the names of her characters from places around where she lives(* 2). You can see clearly that she was influenced by the landscapes of Kumamoto when drawing the scenery we have come to love in Natsume Yuuijinchou, and the anime staff used Kumamoto as a reference for the landscapes we see in the anime. So some of these beautiful places are closely based on real locations! As a result, fans have travelled to the area in order to see these places in person, to feel their favourite series come to life. This sort of travel is known as ‘Seichi Junrei’, or just ‘Junrei’ – it means ‘pilgrimage to holy places’.
She is primarily known for her shōjo manga works on the magazines LaLa and LaLa DX, published by Hakusensha.

She began to seriously pursue her manga career starting in middle school. Her most successful work has been Natsume Yūjinchō, which has been made into three anime series in 2008, 2009, and 2011. The manga sold over 5 million volume copies by the sale of volume 12.


  • In 1998, she won the 18th LMG Fresh Debut award for her debut work Coffee Hirari.
  • In 2000, she won an award by Hakusensha (白泉社アテナ新人大賞デビュー優秀者賞) for Akaku Saku Koe
