Natsume Yuujinchou: Another Mushishi Light?

Currently finished: Episode 2

This is another anime has something to do with traditional Japanese ghost and spirit stories. The structure so far is very similar to Mokke and Mushishi, where every episode, a new "entity" is introduced, and the significance of this entity is explained through some events occurred during the episode.

So far, the "bitter sweet comedy" has been the general approach. In contrast to Mokke and Mushishi, Natsume Yuujinchou seems to be trying to make a much bigger emotional stir.
