[Ended] Natsume Yuujinchou San: Lighter Than Usual

The story of Natsume Yuujinchou is slowly evolving. It has gone from single episodic stories of monsters that wanting to retrieve their name from book of friends to a semi-serialized short stories of Natsume's life. In fact, majority episodes of this third season has nothing to do with the book of friends itself. Still, what makes Natsume Yuujinchou so attractive was never lost: a series of short stories that are designed to be heart touching.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 92 (Light Drama)
Comedy: 89 (To certain extends)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 90 (Unique to its own)
Sound/Music: 93 (Great as usual)
Character: 91 (More in-depth development)
Plot: 86 (A bit lacking, but not bad)
Ending: 85 (More to come)

Re-watch value: 60 (Maybe)

Overall: 90 - The third installment is still as great 

Recommendation: In my opinion, you either love Natsume Yuujinchou or couldn't stand it, it's highly unlikely to feel anything in between.
