Scene of my top favorite Natsume Yuujinchou episode, To The Ephemeral Ones.Natsume Takashi remembers a moment of his childhood, back when he was having a fever in a foster house, and the wood knots of the ceiling seemed to gain life. He thought it was a delirium, but actually it was a youkai (or ayakashi) whom healed him, under the excuse that, if the kid died, he “wouldn’t have anybody to scare.” One of the most touching things I find in the anime is when Takashi remembers his sad past and realizes that not all the creatures that haunted his childhood meant harm. A few actually wanted to help him, but didn’t know how.102550100 NestedThreadedFlat Oldest FirstNewest First
