I’m going to use more pictures and less writing in this one, because then you get to look at lots of lovely pictures and I get to write less. It’s a win-win situation. I this episode, Natsume decides to help a pretty women, much to the annoyance of Nyanko
Natsume has made some friends! Anywho, he was cycling with them in the extreme heat until they came to a dried up lake, then Natsume spotted something strange
Of course, the others can’t see it, so Natsume decides to draw attention away from his mistake by fainting, as you would.
As usual, Natsume gets waken up by spirits knocking on his window in the middle of the night. I’d be pissed off by this, since it seems to happen to him every night, but I guess he brought it on himself. He could have tried taking over the world with the book o’ pals instead, but I guess that would have taken more effort.
The lead guy informs Natsume that he’s being possessed so, with some help from Nyanko as usual, they get it out of him.
BTW, Natsume packs some power punch doesn’t he. Either way, it turns out to be some girl who starts stalking him. Natsumes original plan was to ignore her, but it didn’t work with the last spirit so obviously it wouldn’t work with this one either.
It turns out the girl used to be a baby swallow who had been picked up as a human when it had fell out of its nest, but the smell of the human stayed there so the parents never came back and all the birds starved.
Then the girl/swallow starts to flirt with Natsume, which means Natsume Yuujinchou has become a harem. Is there no anime that isn’t safe!!!
What the girl really wanted was to get in Natsumes pantsto talk to the human who had fed her when she had originally became a youkai. They did find him, but of course he couldn’t see her, which was actually a really sad moment.
Then the youkai who had come to him earlier informed him that the youkai were going to Beijing to compete in capture the flag, except the flag was a yukata that meant humans could enter. Natsume had to go to this since he used to hold the world record for capture the flag until the horrible accident involving a mango which ended his career early.
But we forgot about Nyanko, who said that he must take him to the jousting tournament, like the one in the movie ‘A Knights Tale’.
The problem was both competitions were on at the same time so they decided to combine the two races in the hopes that they would win both gold medals
They won both competitions, but it turned out Nyanko was on steroids (did you ever wonder how he turned into that giant wolf) so they were kicked out, but not before getting the yukata and giving it to the girl from earlier
Well, I got a bit carried away with that episode summery. I guess its the combination of Olympic fever and the fact that the Premiership is about to start again.
But being serious again, that was a fairly good episode of Natsume Yuujinchou, but nothing special. No Reiko yet again, but at least it was a huge improvement from the last episode with stupid Santo
