Sharing snippets of Natsume Yuujinchou
As a lead up to the Summer broadcast of a 3rd season, I’m helping to spread lotsa Nyanko love around with more snippets of NYC from the May issue of LaLa that I’d gotten weeks ago. Just goes to show you how so not punctual am I lately. But who cares about that when we’ve got plenty of nyan-nyan cheers to share, eh?! 😛
Page announcing a special Summer event screening which will feature a 40-mins Brains Base produced animation of ‘Hotarubi no mori e‘ (Into the Forest of the Fireflies), adapted from Midorikawa-sensei’s one shot manga of the same name. The animation will also feature the music of Yoshimori Makoto. Basically, the anime will be produced by the exact same team from Natsume Yuujinchou. For more info, visit the website stated on the page or just click on the image below. And heck ya, I really want to see this. I hope it gets a DVD/BD release.
And the story continues from the previous chapter when Madara, Natori and Tanuma managed to rescue and free Natsume from the sealing jar before he could be *auction* off at a youkai gathering. Natori reveals himself to the boys. Apparently, he’s trying the catch and seal a foul deviant spirit which is the same one which put Natsume in a dangerous bind before. So, the 3 of them along with Madara-Nyanko in his favourite female form 😀 , decided to work together to trap the horrid youkai. Did they succeed? Well, yes of course…but not without difficulties along the way as our exorcists discovered. It’s always hilarious to see Nyanko-sensei in Reiko’s form. 😆
Last but not least, I thought I post the double-page colour spread for La Corda D’oro final chapter, as an added bonus (even though it’s not related to NYC). The manga ended its run in this issue. Fare thee well to the primo-passo students of Seiso Music Academy.
