Hi everyone!
Are you all excited for the fifth season of the anime!? I sure am!

To get in to the mood, last week I traveled to Hitoyoshi city, in Kumamoto prefecture, which is the area where the mangaka, Midorikawa Yuki, is from, and where Natsume Yuujinchou takes place. Many locations which appear in the anime are based on real-life locations there. So for four days (the longest I could get off work =_=; ) , I went around looking for these locations, exploring them and taking photos. If anybody is interested, you can read my reports about this on my blog here:

Day 1: Setoishi station
Day 2: Amemiya Shrine and Hitoyoshi City
Day 3: Matsutani Valley and Okoba station
Day 4: Ichifusa Dam

As to what these locations represent...

short explanation under the cut~Collapse )

Of course I can't take credit for actually 'finding' these locations in real life, because I mostly used these two Japanese blogs, and a guide map that was available at the Hitoyoshi station tourist information center,  for reference. You can check those blogs for comparison screenshots between the anime and the real-life locations (I don't have the time to find and add screencaps to my posts ^^; ). But I thought maybe some of you here would be interested in reading a report in English about it.

I will also be visiting the Natsume Yuujincho Go pre-screening event tomorrow, and I'll probably write up a little report about that too soon after. So feel free to keep an eye on my journal if you're interested to find out a little about the new anime before it officially airs. >w<

...I'm not sure what to tag this post as, other than 'fanworks'... But oh well... I hope some of you will enjoy looking at my travel reports! ^^

Hey Guys!

I don't know if you guys have heard, but Natsume is getting a 5th season coming this fall! I can't wait for it, yet at the same time, I feel like the anime left off at a good place at the end of the 4th season. What do you guys think?

Hey everyone~
Today I was lucky enough to be able to go to the afternoon performance of "Sound Theatre x Natsume Yuujinchou ~Tsudoi Ongeki no Shou~ Futatabi", the repeat performance of the sound theatre they did back in 2013. I was really sad for missing it back then, so I'm really glad they performed it again and I was able to get a ticket and go.

I just got back and I wrote down some quick impressions and flailing about it in my journal, and I need people to flail with, because it was absolutely amazing! So if anyone's curious how it was, go check out my post here:

One of the highlights was this giant Nyanko-sensei plushie in the theater lobby, haha.
More pics at my post, too. =3

Hey everyone! Last weekend I had the chance to wear my Natsume cosplay again, this time for an actual studio photoshoot! I'd never been to one before, but two of my Japanese friends introduced me to a cosplay studio they go to regularly, Mocket2 Studio in Hikifune, Tokyo. The Japanese-style room there suited Natsume perfectly, so I'm really happy with the pictures we got to take there!

Hi everyone!
At the Elf Fantasy Fair, held last weekend in Haarzuilens, the Netherlands, I cosplayed as Natsume again. So I thought I'd share some pictures.

 photo _SAM_3340_zpswutxa3ni.jpg

I really wanted to cosplay Natsume in Japanese style clothes, but I didn't have the means to make an elaborate costume from scratch right now. Instead I thought about what I could make with stuff I already had around the house, and I ended up going for Natsume's outfit from volume 13 (chapter 53-54) from the manga, where he[Spoiler (click to open)]pretends to be one of Matoba's shiki. I already had the wig and contacts from when I cosplayed him before though, so the colour scheme is more like the anime than the manga. But hopefully those chapters will eventually be animated too, and then it'll be accurate, haha. xD

Anyways, you can read more about the event and see the pictures in this post at my journal!

Hope you enjoy! ^-^
